    Hey! I had just a random question about dessert…do you have dessert right after you finish dinner or do you wait a little bit? I always feel like I need to eat something sweet after I eat dinner even though I am full. I have tried to break this habbit because I don’t want to have to NEED dessert every night. Even though I keep it pretty low-cal, any suggestions for stopping the cycle? Thanks!

      Hey Amanda,

      I usually crave dessert right after I finish eating, but I try to give myself an hour or so and do the dishes or something before I have my dessert. I know its not the best habit I have gotten myself into, but dessert is truly my favorite time of day and I think anyone can enjoy in moderation of a daily basis 🙂

    Those crackers sound like a dream! Coconut chicken nuggs look awesome, Meghann! I’ll have to replace the chicken with tempeh or tofu and give it a shot. Thanks for the great idea. You’re probably going to LOVE the trail race- you’ll kill it!

    I adore those crackers, the flavor is so good! Those nuggets look pretty amazing too, I made coconut tofu a while back and that turned out pretty well.

    The chicken nuggets look great! I bet it’d be good dipped in a curry-flavored sauce.

    Very cool looking orzo!
    I love the coconut chicken idea. That’s a flavour combo I never would have that of… way to be creative, as always!

    The trail race sounds so cool! Is it over different terrain, or will you be able to stick to a trail for the whole time?

    this meal looks so great! i love the coconut idea – it reminds me of my favorite “Treat” at a restaurant at home with coconut shrimp. delish!

    Love this recipe. I use it on shrimp all the time but recently I tried it on tofu and it also ROCKS!

    Good luck with your trail run! 🙂

    great idea for the chicken nuggets – we’ve done our own coconut shrimp like that at home, but never chicken.

    good luck on your grass run tomorrow – it is different, but you’ll do great!

    mmm what a great idea mixing the coconut and breadcrumbs! I bet it would be an awesome coating for some mock tempura pineapple or sweetpotato too!

    i bought the herb flavor Mary’s Gone Crackers on a whim last weekend. At first I thought they lacked salt, but after eating a few, they grew on me.

    I’ve gotten so many great meal ideas from you Meghann! Thanks! 🙂 I hope you enjoy the trail race…I always think they go by much more quickly than other ones!

    I am SO making those coco-chicken nuggets! Drooling here…

    I was having a Mary’s Gone Crackers snack today…original flavor. I was enjoying myself and then suddenly I got a hard seed or something and thought I had broken my tooth! Gah!! So okay, fluke. Had another one…same freaking thing! Worse than gristle in your grease pit hamburger.

    Now I’m looking at the box and I want another cracker. But I’M SCARED.

    Great idea for the chicken nuggets. I love coconut shrimp, so I bet the chicken is great that way too.

    Hahaha, when I saw the picture I thought, “WHY ARE THOSE CHICKEN NUGGETS SO HAIRY?!??” I love the idea of coconut chicken nuggets with bbq sauce. You’re a nugget genius, Meghann!

    You should try a white fish with your coconut breading (i.e. tilapia, halibut, mahi mahi), little pineapple salsa on the side, a pina colada…a little green bikini action…

    Naturally nutty on the kit kat blondie is a double-whammy Michigan treat!! Let me know if we need to restock your freezer with blondies. 🙂

    Your coconut chicken nuggets look so tasty! Lucky for me, I have a nearly full container of unsweetened coconut in my pantry. I’ll have to try the recipe soon.

    the nuggets look incredible. I have some unsweetened coconut in my fridge – so I want to make this soon! great recipe.

    oh and I read you had your coconut in your pantry – when I first bought mine – I had it in my pantry too, but I found out later it said refrigerate after opening. I dont know enough about it, but figured I would mention it…just in case…not sure if it can go bad?

    Those nuggets look amazing! Great idea 🙂

    I just read your post about the money you raised and the amazing woman in Iraq right now who donated to your cause. All of it is truly amazing. I am so inspired by what you are doing!

    You totally should have entered these into this week’s BSI contest, since the ingredient was coconut! 🙂 They look great, I might have to give them a go sometime.

    I just fell in love with coconut and was looking for a savory meal to use it in. I’ve made cornmeal-crusted chicken tenders before, but I can’t wait to bake these nuggets for an easy weeknight meal. Thanks! 🙂
