What a snow day for the Northeast, huh? I was supposed to teach the pre-schoolers again today (two sets actually) but because of the snow everything was closed. Instead I slept in then had a big warm bowl of oats (with a banana and Teddie unsalted p.b.) while watching the snow fall. It’s beautiful but I’m still not a fan of the cold, or the bad driving conditions.
The rest of the morning I did some cleaning for mi madre. Aren’t I nice? :)
I was in the mood for pizza for lunch. Twice in one week – I’m on a roll! This time I made a white pizza using part-skim ricotta, mozzarella, and broccoli.
I also coerced my mom to go snowshoeing with me this afternoon when there was a break in the snowfall. However by the time we got ready to go and put our snowshoes on, the wind and snow started up again. Come on, seriously! We headed out anyway for about 40 minutes. Lena came with us of course.
Dinner later was also totally awesome. Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Fajitas circa Fitness magazine 2008.
Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Fajitas (makes 1 serving? 500 calories)
- 1/2 cup sliced onions
- 1 cup sliced multicolor bell peppers
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 4 ounces precooked frozen shrimp, thawed
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2 whole grain tortillas
Sauté onions and peppers in oil with garlic and cumin for 6-8 minutes, until tender. Toss thawed shrimp, cilantro, and lime juice with hot vegetables. Fill tortillas with mixture.
I’ve just been informed that Chobani is introducing Chobani Champions, their greek yogurt especially for kids!
As you can see, they have two flavors Verry Berry and Honey-nana. The Honey-nana sounds so delicious to me! Each cup is 3.5 oz, 100 calories, and has 20% DV Vitamin D and 10% DV Calcium. I also think it’s important to note that they are free of preservatives, artificial flavors, and milk treated with synthetic growth hormones.
And for the grown-ups – 3 new flavors will be coming out! 2% Mango, 0% Black Cherry, and 0% Lemon. I’m really excited to try the lemon!

Did you have a snow day today? Did you do anything you don’t typically get to do?
