Not a Ginger Lover

by Meghann on August 19, 2009

I need to learn to stay away from bars with ‘Ginger’ in the title. As much as I love gingerbread cookie and ginger snaps, there is something about raw or crystalized ginger in bar form that grosses me out.

Case in point this afternoon I tried a new Chocolate Ginger Maca Power Bar I purchased the other weekend.


It had great potential with the promise of hazelnuts and chocolate, but halfway through all I could taste was the ginger.




I picked out the whole pieces of hazelnut then chucked the rest of bar in the trash

Luckily my dinner made up for the poor snack.


How could this bowl not be tasty?!?


The best part was the fish thanks to this new Trader Joe’s find I brought back from Boston.


The almond meal intrigued me. I mixed the almond meal, fresh parsley, and some unsweetened shredded coconut in one bowl and egg white and milk in the other. I dipped the Tilapia in the egg mix, then the almond meal and baked in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes.


The fish was perfect on top of a massage kale salad with avocado, tomato, mushrooms and feta.


I believe I could eat this dinner over and over again. It plated beautifully and I think would make a great date dish!

Dessert was another one of Whit’s Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes.


I believe I made the best decision when purchasing these from the bake sale. They have to be the best thing from the table.

Tonight I have slowly but surely getting my apartment back to order. I have also been tackling some to do tasks that have been on my list. One of them included hanging some B&W photos of my two babies.


I love the way this one of Abbie came out. It’s one of my favorite photos of her.


I like to think she is still playing in the field somewhere. I miss her so much.

These frames were pretty cheap from IKEA. I’m hoping to get a few more and do a puzzle on my wall of the frames. I have no decorating sense what so ever, but I do love hanging up photos! I’ll keep you updated on how my little project goes.

Chobani Giveaway

This morning I woke up feeling refreshed and renewed. My voice is back and my throat feels fine. I think it just needed some time to rest and I believe my FroYo last night was the ultimate cure. 🙂 I was craving a run when I woke up so I did a slow and steady more »
