I need some help over here.

Maybe it has something to do with the pollo fundido entree I ordered last night, complete with fried tortillas stuffed with chicken and cheese, then topped with sour cream and more (you guessed it) cheese, which followed three baskets of chips and salsa.

Pollo fundido indeed.

 

I kind of think I’m having a heart attack.

Not even joking.

I was about to post my third bacon-infused recipe this week when it hit me that I’ve been a little too friendly with the pork lately. Didn’t think it was possible? Me either. My jeans say otherwise. Ho.Ly. Cow.

I just can’t do it.

Hallllllp me.

Not that I’d ever envision taking a break from a crispy slice of heaven, but I’m in need of something refreshing today that doesn’t make me feel like a triple stent is in my near future. That dinner did a number on me last night because just the thought of cheese and pork and cheesy pork is sort of making me cry. And while they are mostly tears I’m joy, I’m really just craving a juicy apple.

That never happens. Maybe this is the end of me?

The only options floating around iPhoto include bacon, butter, cake and mass amounts of panko + cheese. No can do today my friends. I need my space. Like an entire couch of space. And some sweat pants. And a sewing kit for my pants. What the hell, I’m going to order some pajama jeans.

While I’m doing that, enjoy some of my favorite lighter fare.

Crunchy Honey Chicken

Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Strawberry Mango Basil Salsa

Healthier Cashew Chicken

Tropical Avocado Smoothie

Cilantro Lime Hummus

Strawberry Yogurt Granitas

Green Bean Fries

Sweet and Spicy Banana Kiwi Salad

Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins

Crispy Shrimp Tacos

Nectarine Mint Milkshakes

Ummm… how did those get in there?

 

What healthy recipe are your faaaaves right now? I need some lightened up goodness. And please don’t say kale chips or bananas whipped into ice cream. I like those things too, but… enough already people.

    So, I never comment on blogs. I just stumble in and stumble out. But your commentary was so…. me. I got a good giggle reading on. And your photos are wonderful. I do believe I will roll off the sofa and try some of them. :-) Thanks!
