I think I might have spoiled TheBetterHalf with all of the baking I do. Let me explain…we almost always have something for him to bring to work for breakfast. I package up muffins and breads and donuts in packs of two and pop them in the freezer so that he can grab one each morning on his way out the door. However I haven’t been baking as much recently and was out of town last weekend, so our frozen baked good reserves are totally depleted! He was actually complaining (jokingly, of course) that he had nothing to bring for breakfast!! Spoiled. So spoiled. I kindly reminded him that there are markets / bodegas / coffee shops on nearly every corner in NYC and that they all have a lovely selection of breakfast items. But it did lead me to make some muffins this past weekend to keep him happy – Orange Chocolate Chip Yogurt Muffins! And I’m really not complaining – I love having someone enjoy my baked goods! …

Meyer Lemon – up until recently I didn’t really know what this fruit was. I had heard of them and seen them on many restaurant menus, but I had never actually researched meyer lemons or bought them. And then I saw a bag of the gorgeous things at Trader Joes the other day and all of that changed. I am now obsessed with Meyer Lemons, and in particular with these meyer lemon mini muffins!

Easy Healthy Snacks with Pistachios | ChezCateyLou.com

If you’ve spent any amount of time with me, you know I love my snacks! I seriously can’t go two hours without snacking on something. But when you snack as much as I do, the key is to keep the snacks healthy and  nutritionally balanced. That’s why one of my favorite snacks to reach for are pistachios! They are a great way to get a salty, crunchy fix while sticking with a healthy diet.

Plus, pistachios pair so well with other foods to create perfect snacks or mini-meals. One of my favorite pairings is pistachios with Greek yogurt, blackberries, and green tea to drink. This is literally the perfect snack –  protein from the yogurt, a little healthy fat (plus protein and fiber) from the pistachios, vitamins and fiber from the berries, and antioxidants from the green tea. Talk about a power snack! And filling too. I add a small drizzle of honey too since I like things sweet!

Scroll to the bottom of the post for a chance to win a year’s supply of pistachios!
