The weight is holding steady–I must’ve really done some damage last weekend!  Anyway, here’s a peek at some of my eats from today:


green bell pepper slices + hummus


apple + almond butter


trail mix from a local market that I “baggied” into 1/4 cup portions –> 140 calories each!


This would be the roasted edamame I made to bring to my friend’s house who hosted a s’mores party tonight!  I wanted to bring something a little healthier since I’m trying to “be good” this week.  I followed the following recipe from Tina over at Carrots ‘n’ Cake (source).  Everyone at the get together loved it.  Score!   And I swore to myself I’d only eat ONE s’more!  I ended up eating two…and drinking some wine.  🙂


  • 16 ounces frozen shelled edamame
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Combine ingredients in a large bowl and mix well, so edamame is fully coated with olive oil and Parmesan.
  3. Spread edamame on a large baking sheet, toss occasionally, and cook for 40-45 minutes until cheese starts to lightly brown. (If your edamame is already defrosted, your cook time will be less.)
  4. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours and serve cold.
