2 Ingredient Valentine’s Recipe …Pink Fudge <3

VDay Pink Fudge | The Bombshell Files

I ran across this super simple (here and here), 2 ingredient recipe, that was just too perfect for VDay.

Now I’m not a big blow out decorator for the holidays, but I do get into holiday foods.

And the easier it is, the better, right?

So this isn’t the healthiest…and by that I mean, there is absolutely no redeeming healthy qualities about this at all.  But it is delicious. And I can’t emphasize enough, the greatness that is a 2 ingredient recipe.

Here’s what you need →

BEAN SALAD: Quick and Easy Snack

Bean Salad

I wanted to share one of my favorite snacks that is super easy to make and on the healthier side.   I call it, bean salad.  I have been so into it lately.

AND it’s so much better for you than eating cookies and donuts and all of that crap that can be so tempting when it’s sitting around your office.

Once again, it is super simple to make (you can find everything at the grocery store), it’s packed with fiber (hell yea!) and fills you up.  These are all things that win at life.

One batch makes enough to last me the week.  In the morning, I will fill up a little tupperware dish to take to work.  I keep it in the refrigerator there until it’s time for my 2 o’clock snack.  After that, I’m usually good to go until dinner.  Do you guys snack around 2 or is that just me?  If I don’t, I am ravenous when I get home.

Bean Salad Ingredients

Here’s what you need:

◊  1 can of garbanzo beans

◊  1 can of cut green beans

◊  1 can of kidney beans

◊  1 can of corn

◊  ½ cup of champagne dressing (I like Girard’s and get the ‘light’ champagne)

Here’s what you do:

  1.  Pour one can into a colander and rinse the beans under water, then let it strain and put them into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Repeat with all 4 cans.
  3. Once the 4 cans of beans and corn are in the large mixing bowl, add the champagne dressing and stir it up.

First, rinse the beans

Second, put beans and dressing in a large bowl

Balsamic Glaze and Bean Salad

Then, to finish it off, you can add a bit of balsamic vinegar.  When I put the concoction into my tupperware in the mornings,  I drizzle a little bit of balsamic glaze (that I’ve talked about before)  on top and then mix it in.  Then, when hunger strikes at work, I will grab this and I am good to go.

I love this recipe because it’s straight forward and easy, it makes enough to last me through the week, tastes delicious, and fills me up.

Let me know if you guys have any snacks that keep you going through the day.  I’m always looking for something  healthy, delicious, and easy to make.

Favorite Easy Breakfast: OVERNIGHT OATS

Overnight OatsOvernight Oats is one of my absolute favorite healthy breakfast options.   I have been making this for the past few years and still look forward to eating it.

I am always on the go in the morning.  It’s not that I wake up too late, it’s just that I lounge around with my coffee too long.  All of sudden it’s, “Oh crap, I’m late!”  Then the rush is on.  So I like to have something easy and filling to grab on my way out the door.  This simple recipe uses 4 ingredients and is super quick & easy to make.

Ingredients

Ingredients:

◊  ½ cup of rolled oats

◊  ½ cup of vanilla (or plain) yogurt

◊  ⅔ cup of almond milk (unsweetened vanilla)

◊  Sprinkle of cinnamon

◊  Mason jar or container

Instructions:  

Mix all of the ingredients in a mason jar or container.  Then let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 3 hours.

Layers

( How it looks before mixing )

You can substitute the vanilla yogurt for any kind you like (greek, strawberry, plain).  Same goes for the milk. I am all about almond milk these days, but you can use regular, rice, or any variation.

After you take it out of the refrigerator, you can eat it just how it is or you can jazz it up by adding different fruits or chopped up walnuts. Raspberries and blueberries are my favorite.  The other morning, I added blackberries and a sliced up a banana and it was a little sweet & tangy party in my mouth.  Sometimes I will drizzle a little bit of raw honey on top too.  Play around with different fruit combos and get creative with it.

If you try this, let me know what extras you added to it that you love.  Do you have any quick and easy breakfasts that save you time in the morning?
