I’m ready for the Spring and Summer…they can come along anytime now! I think this has been the snowiest winter that I’ve experienced since moving to Ohio, which was nice at first, but I think I’m over it. Since it’s been so cold and snowy – one thing’s been on my mind: soup!
I recently told my two best friends that sugar was also one of my best friends…much to their dismay. But I really do love sweets – and – since I know that, I still eat dessert every day…with a catch. I try to find lower calorie, healthy, homemade options for my desserts (and I let myself go a little crazier on the weekends).

I. Love. Chipotle. The whole concept – and – the fact that they use high quality ingredients makes the trip (albeit only two minutes from my apartment) worthwhile.

Instead of eating this with rice or in a salad, I decided to stuff into into bell peppers and top with avocado and salsa. The best part: I was able to break this down into 12 meals! I simply portioned the beef and popped it in the freezer!
