Where did I ever get my meal ideas before I started reading food blogs?  2/3rds of today’s dinner was completely inspired by the world of food blogging…

But first —

For an afternoon snack today, I had a peach and some trail mix.

Dinner was much more exciting 😉

I decided to make Caitlin’s Perfect Baked tofu, Angela’s Nut Butter Parsnip fries, and Robyn’s steamed frozen vegetables.

Served with a bit of BBQ sauce for dipping.  Meals are always better when they involve dipping of some sort.

This week, I have actually written out my daily dinner plan for each day this week.  I could tell you what I’m planning to have in advance, but then I’d have to kill you. OR, I like to keep at least some element of surprise to this blog 🙂 Instead of choosing what to cook and then buying groceries, I bought my groceries first and then planned my meals around this selection.  This is a much more frugal way of planning meals because you buy what’s on sale instead of what you need for a specific recipe.  However, it’s not the best method for encouraging culinary creativity and trying new recipes!

For dessert, I cut up a mango, peach and some blueberries for a small fruit salad for us both, and had it with a frugal, low-fat brownie and a cup of coffee.  Perfection!

Now I will spend the rest of the evening reading and watching TV with a bit of 5-pound weight lifting thrown in for gun-building purposes.

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
