Lately I feel like I’ve been on a gianormous scavenger hunt to find food. Ever have those times where you have a million random food items yet nothing to eat? The.worst.

The upside is that those random foods can actually make up something pretty yummy and filling.

For the times you have food, but nothing to eat…Enjoy these.

Dressed Up Toast

The Brunette Blend - Quick Bites - Toast

Low-Carb BBQ Chicken Pizza

The Brunette Blend - Quick Bites - Low Carb BBQ Pizza

Another quick and easy recipe. Perfect for that leftover chicken and those tortillas that keep getting pushed further back into the fridge.

-Whole wheat tortilla
-BBQ sauce
-Shredded or bite sized pieces of chicken
-Mozzarella cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. On a non-stick sheet, place tortilla and lightly cover tortilla with olive oil (this helps it crisp)
3. Put in oven for about 5 mins or until gets close to the level of crunchiness of crust you prefer.
4. Remove from oven and add BBQ, chicken, and cheese
5. Place in oven until cheese has melted
6. Cut and enjoy

Stirfry

The Brunette Blend - Quick Bites - Stirfry

The ultimate throw everything in and just cook! Sautee your veggies and toss in your rice while adding soy sauce. Stir, stir, stir. For protein, add an egg. Make sure to make sure the egg is throughly cooked. Serve and enjoy!

Bonus: Creamy Vanilla-Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Whats the real reason we go to Starbucks? Yes, the caffeine. BUT a lot of us go for the syrups and sweet concoctions. For less than your average grande iced whatever, you can make this on the cheap (with items just around your kitchen!) and its just as good…less cals too!

Directions:

1. Add packet of Stevia, 2 tsp of vanilla*, and about 1/3 half +half* to your glass
2. Load with ice
3. Pour coffee over ice
4. Add extra ice if needed
5. Sprinkle with cinnamon
*When I make this, I don’t use exact measurements. These are just my best guesses. Adjust according to your tastes and preferences.
