Okay, so I fell off the detox wagon a couple of times this week. But, come on! How could I have resisted going out for Ethiopian or resist that chocolate chip cookie craving or the hot chocolate craving (Okay, the last one wasn't that bad. I did make it with almond milk!) No matter how many times I fell off this week, I must admit that I am very proud for having lasted this long and for not giving into every single craving that I did have. While my yearly detox is almost over (Tuesday to be exact), I still anticipate on keeping up with my healthy lifestyle majority of the time, because let's get real, I love to bake!
In case you missed it, here is what was featured this week on Gastronome Tart:
Most Popular Post This Week:
Better Than Milky Way Bars- That Skinny Chick Can Bake. I noticed this recipe on Cravings of a Lunatic's blog as a guest post and was immediately hooked. The layers look so scrumptious and since I absolutely LOVE Milky Way bars (only time I eat them would be around Halloween of course) I was hooked on this dessert!
Chickpeas with Delicata Squash, Kale and Coconut Milk- Healthy Green Kitchen. Winnie always seems to make the most delicious and healthy dishes for her family and since I absolutely am addicted to chickpeas and love coconut milk and kale, I thought this would be the Holy Grail of healthy food bowls. I am looking forward to cooking this and sometime soon.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies- Katherine Martinelli Blog. I apparently must be behind the times as well. You see this recipe was blowing up the foodie blogosphere back in 2010 with the release of Kimy Boyce's Good to the Grain cookbook. I am hooked on the fact that these are made from 100% whole wheat! Yum!
As the hubby and I were watching the television one night a few weeks ago, we were taken aback by the McDonald's commericial that was featuring Mickey D's "farmers" stating how proud they were to be part of McDonald's. It was practically SCREAMING Olive Garden all over it (anyone remember their commercial stating how their "chef's" were trained in Italy? Puh-leese!) So, it came as no surprise to me when McDonald's planned Twitter party was apparently ruined by stories of bad experiences with the brand rather than positive. Is anyone surprised? Sometimes those hash tags companies try to get us to use can be a bad thing. Although, I must admit, I do love their fries. Come on now. You know you do too.
Have a Great Weekend!
