My Top 5 {FOOD!}

I get asked from time to time if I get bored eating the same foods a lot. We have different dinners every night. Aside from a few of our absolute favorites, we don’t repeat meals too often. I like to cook, hubby likes to eat, and you all want variety in my posts, right?! So for those reasons, I try to whip up fresh ideas for dinner. Up until dinner, though, is a completely different story. I eat A LOT of the same things daily. And I ain’t one bit mad about it. I love having my go-to’s that I know are delicious, good for me, and I don’t have to read labels or do research because they are old friends.

So, with that being said – my top 5 favorite staple products that I consume at least 360 days a year.

{#1 – Shakeology} You had to see that coming, right?! If I were forced to give up every food with the exception of 1 thing, I would choose Shakeology. It truly has transformed my life. I can tell an immediate difference in the way that I feel, my energy levels, and my sweet tooth, if I don’t have it. I made a pact to have it every day this year, and it hasn’t been the least bit hard to keep that. I don’t even have to think about it. By far the most important meal I have, like ever. I take it everywhere with me. You can learn more about Shakeology here.

{#2 – Greek Yogurt} If there was a terrible world where greek yogurt became extinct, I’m not sure that I could go on. I eat 1 cup of 0% plain Fage greek yogurt daily. I should also note that I am completely inflexible about my brand. I just love everything about it. Some of my favorite methods for consuming greek yogurt are protein pancakes, mixed with almond butter and apples, or with sprinkled cinnamon and fresh fruit. When we were recently in St. Maarten, I heard there was a health foods grocery store, and I took my husband on a wild goose chase to find it in hopes that they had my yogurt. They did, and it made my trip that much better, as you can see from this moment below. It’s worth noting that the import prices are much higher, and I spent over $30 in greek yogurt for our 6 day trip. At Costco, there’s much better pricing on the 3 pound tubs.

{#3 – Justin’s Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, and Hazelnut Butter} Okay, that’s technically 3 – but any one of them would work just fine for me. My sweets cravings are mostly taken care of by Shakeology, like I mentioned earlier, but when I want a little something extra, all I have to do is reach for the Justin’s. It’s delicious, super smooth, low sugar, and completely clean. I mix it with anything and everything.

{#4 – Skinny Pop} 3 words. Movie Theatre Popcorn. I know, right?! Well, that’s not on the plan. But Skinny Pop is an amazing replacement, and it’s low calorie, clean, and yum. Again, Costco is the place to find great deals on big bags and mini to-go bags. There are also yummy seasonal flavors, like this one. The only problem is that if you get too attached, you’ll have to eventually say goodbye. But don’t worry, the original is just as good!

{#5 – Ezekiel English Muffins} Any kind will make your heart happy, but the cinnamon raisin is my bestie. Completely addicted to these bad boys, and hubby is too. He used to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches daily. On disgusting, chemical filled bread. Now, he makes a PB&J muffin with these little guys, and we’re both happy, and full of love..and muffins. I also use these for breakfast sandwiches, or any kind of sandwiches. Below is Monte Cristo I made a few weeks ago. Food For Life brand makes these muffins, and they can be found in the organic freezer section at most grocery stores. Here’s a printable coupon for $1 off two products, I promise you’ll use both!


My top 5 favorite things used to include Diet Pepsi and mayonnaise. I am so grateful for this lifestyle change, and I can’t believe that I get to eat the things I now crave, without guilt or negative side effects. I hope you guys try some of these things if you haven’t yet, I might be biased, but I think you’ll love LOVE them all!
