Aug 06, 2014 No Comments

I’ve always categorized lettuce wraps as “Chinese” food since it would always be on the menu at Chinese restaurants. If it just so happened to be on the menu on at a non-Chinese joint, it would have some name, description or ingredient that was stereotypically Asian. Some of the best lettuce wraps I know of [...]

ST Instafit Meals: Pork Chops with Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Jul 30, 2014 No Comments

This ST Instafit Meal was one of those meals that I had no idea what I was going to make prior to walking into the grocery store…well, kinda. I knew I wanted to somehow incorporate sweet potatoes and I knew I didn’t want to use chicken. So I went with the other white meat! Despite [...]

ST Instafit Meals: “Bangers and Mash”

Jul 29, 2014 No Comments

Bangers and mash is a traditional dish in England that is commonly referred to as “pub grub”, which I’m guessing is the equivalent of bar food here across the pond. “Mash” is short for mashed potatoes–which makes sense–while “bangers” isn’t short for anything; it’s a term used for sausage. Now how did those crazy Brits [...]

Jul 20, 2014 No Comments

Frozen waffles were one of my favorite breakfasts growing up. Who doesn’t remember, “Leggo my Eggo!”? Classic! Taking a stroll down the frozen food section I happened to notice that frozen waffles had gotten quite sophisticated since I was a kid with options that included fruit, chocolate chips and even a chocolate flavored waffle.

ST Instafit Meals: Chicken or Beef Salad

Jul 18, 2014 No Comments

Similar to the chicken Caesar salad ST Instafit Meal, the Chicken/Beef salad is what I call a “beginner” salad.

If you aren’t used to having salads then this is good one [...]
