The daily work routine goes as so: get in , get coffee, eat breakfast and roughly 2 hours later I am STARVING! I mean on my deathbed STARVING!
However, in the last 2 weeks I have conquered this problem with my version of "Greek Heaven"
I have had Greek yogurt in the past , but it was always the kind with fruit on the bottom , or on the side- which is often high in sugar, not exactly what I want or lacking that certain something.
My version of "Greek Heaven" is much lower is sugar, higher in protein, and keeps me energized and full until lunch. I also think it is more delicious( obviously)!
All the ingredients below can be found at your local Trader Joe's or supermarket
1 cup of FAGE 2% Greek Yogurt (FAGE 0% is also available for a lower fat option)
1/2 cup seasonal fruit (I used blueberries- but I am now using strawberries or raspberries)
a generous drizzle of honey
light sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
handful of slivered raw almonds (not pictured- this was recently added)
Mix together or layer separately to your preference. I like to use a lot of honey and have now started also using different combinations of fruit like strawberries ,raspberries and even nectarines! Get creative!

THE NEW CATWOMANThis post is LONG overdue, as I saw " The Dark Knight Rises" approximately two months ago!
I truly enjoyed the film - and one of my favorite parts of it was Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Catwoman. I know people will argue with me on this - but I thought she was the best Catwoman yet! I loved the humor ,style and wit she brought to the role. I was really inspired by her sleek, dark look and given that Fall is fast approaching I will use her as inspiration for the coming months.
I will be on the hunt for the perfect leather pants, crimson lips, something black lace & sharply tailored jacket...
