Can’t Fight the Crunch



Well, the bad news is that I woke up feeling worse than I did yesterday. The good news is that I went to the doc this morning and got some meds. To health! :D

Last night I ended up watching G.I. Joe instead of Funny People. I was in the mood to be “wowed”. 8O


And I totally was! I love action movies and this one was right up there with the best of them. It wasn’t as cheesy as some action flicks can be, and I definitely liked it more than Transformers and Spiderman. Great rental! Two thumbs up. :)

So a couple weeks ago, reader Sabrina, sent me a link to an article called “Top Skinny Foods for 2010.” Knowing how much I love pumpkin, Sabrina though I would like the yogurt/pumpkin combo that made the list in the article. Today – I gave it a shot – Vanilla Pumpkin Yogurt!


All you do is combine 1/2 cup pumpkin with a fat-free vanilla yogurt, and some cinnamon. Mix and eat!


I topped mine with some crunchy Grape-nuts. I ate this on the couch next to Ben who was reading, and he had to put his book down while I munched because the crunch of the grape-nuts was so loud he couldn’t concentrate. For some reason this made me laugh soooo hard. Muwahahahaha!


Pumpkin lovers: TOTAL WINNER! Tasted like pumpkin pie filling. Loved it – will be repeating. :)


Thanks Sabrina!


I’m going to go watch some “How the Earth Was Made” on the History Channel (my fave) and then get my bake on!! The recipe I’m diving into is life changing!


What are some of your favorite crunchy foods?

    Love pumpkin yogurt, it’s really delicious! I made some earlier this week, since I have not found Stoney Fields pumpkin in my grocer.

  2. Sara 01.23.2010

    Great idea with the pumpkin yogurt! I love, love, love pumpkin.

  3. Good idea on the yogurt front!! I love granola, really really crunchy granola, or Fru-Grains..and I have some Grape nuts in my cupboard, I can’t wait to try them!
    Glad you got your drugs :) To health!

    I LOVE pumpkin, unfortunately most ways it is prepared are high calorie. I will definitaly give this a try…Yum!!

  5. jenna 01.23.2010

    omg looks great! does pumpkin count as a serving of vegetable/fruit?

  6. Tay 01.23.2010

    Pumpkin yogurt is my favorite!! I’ve been doing it for ages :-) Try adding a bit of maple syrup = yowzas! Pumpkin + cottage cheese is also a winner

  7. Jamie 01.23.2010

    Love the combo of smooth and crunchy! Looks delicious!

    My favorite crunch is pop rocks – only kidding! Those don’t count, although I did see them used on Iron Chef once… I really like Panko bread crumbs on strips of chicken then baked – adds the crunch without the frying!

  8. Hannah 01.23.2010

    I will be trying this for breakfast tomorrow, yum! As for my favourite crunchy thing, it has to be apples. Especially granny smith or pink lady.

    I LOVE LOVE How the Earth Was Made.. my hub and I watch it all the time.. lol.

    My fav crunchy food is prob granola or a crisp apple!

  10. Jillian 01.23.2010

    I eat Cultural Revolution yogurt with homemade granola almost every morning. The pumpkin would be an awesome addition. Can’t wait to try it!

  11. I have been dying to try pumpkin yogurt, the home made variety, but I can’t find pumpkin around here anymore:( so sad!! Hope you get to feeling better girl!!

  12. Bridget 01.23.2010

    Glad you’re on the mend! I love grape nuts with anything so I’ll have to try this. I messed up big time on the butternut squash ravioli–won’t get into the details but my oldest said, “you’re not going to eat that, are you?” I’m ready to take on that recipe again! Have a great weekend.

  13. Mary Ann 01.23.2010

    My absolute crunchy fave has to be Soy Crisps! Yum and healthy. I like the barbecue the best, the Genisoy brand is good, but I have had the Trader Joe brand too!

  14. pumpkin makes everything better :-)

  15. AmyLou 01.23.2010

    That looks super yummy! I love pumpkin! Sounds like you’re feeling better, which is good! Can’t wait to hear about your baking this afternoon! How did your decorated cookies turn out?

  16. Evan Thomas 01.23.2010

    For crunch, I love a good chip

  17. Lauren 01.23.2010

    Awww,darling! So sorry you are feeling worse, but good thing you are taking care of business before it gets out of hand. Way to be on top of things! ;)

    I just made some Pumpkin Pie Yogurt and it was fabulous! :) I like this better than the Stoneyfield Pumpkin Pie yogurt that everyone raves about. Truthfully, I’m not a fan of it and would rather make my own.

    Happy Saturday love!

  18. Ooo I just added that to my NetFlix. I completely forgot about it but want to see it.

    I love granola, baby carrots, crisp apples, crackers, and pretzel rods.
