WIAW - Summer Compensation & Best (Healthy) Lasagna in the UNIVERSE

Welcome to another edition of WIAW!
Hosted by the ridiculously good looking Jen over at Peas & Crayons


Even though I am freezing my butt off this Winter in one of the coldest towns in Sunny Queensland.
I am still trying (a little bit) to share in the fun of the Summer Staples theme for this month - maybe if I pretend hard enough then I will be able to crawl out of my snuggie...

Breakfast today consisted of an experimental 'summer' smoothy.
~ 1 small frozen banana ~
~ cup of blueberries ~
 ~ 1/2 cup of natural yoghurt ~
~ 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder ~
~ Handful of ice ~

Am I crazy for trying to drink a freezing cold smoothy in the middle of winter? Yes, yes I am.
Am I intentionally trying to catch pneumonia and freeze to death? Not intentionally but it is on the cards.



In a vain attempt to dethaw after injecting liquid winter into my veins for breakfast I decided to try this new cool soup  tube for a snack. Matched with some wakeup coffee I managed to make it through the first half of the day.
Cue dull salad for lunch. Baby Spinach, tomato, red capsicum (bell pepper), sugarsnap beans and marinated steak with nutritional yeast. I forgot salad dressing! Woe is me! So I crunched through a boring salad for lunch.
I am loving popcorn at the mo. Low calorie and hits the spot when I start getting hungry at the end of the work day :)
Now get ready be witness to the most delicious and healthy lasagna I have ever tasted!


I don't know about you guys... but I LOVE LOVE LOVE lasagna!
Due to the insane amount of calories in my classic go to recipe for traditional lasagna I hardly ever make it unless I am wanting a blow out.

I think it will become a staple now I have found the skinnytaste.com zucchini version. Cheesy, delicious and pasta free! Prepping the zucchini did take a bit of work but it was so worth the wait!
We paired a portion of lasagna with steamed sugar snap beans and plenty of broccoli :)

I picked up a few skinny cow products on sale in my last grocery trip. Tonight I treated myself to a delicious summery caramel sundae! Sooo good and such a perfect (and not too unhealthy) sweet finish to my day!
If you have recently found a staple healthy alternative to a favourite food please share it with me!

Happy WIAW :)

  13. Soup in a tube? That's fantastic! And it blows my mind. How was it? Was it terrible? Was it magical? Tell me more, tell me more, like did it have a car?
