Tuna Salad Remix

First things first, I am in the market for a new food processor since my Cuisinart food processor decided to stop working after less than 10 uses. Fun!

Please let me know if you have a food processor that you love because I want to get one with a longer lifespan this time around.

I’ve visited many websites searching for a good one, including the CSN stores site (that literally has everything from twin beds to blenders) because the company has offered to let me pick out a product for $60 or less, and I’m thinking this Hamilton Beach Chef Prep 10 Cup food processor seems right up my alley. Anyone out there have this model? I hope it’s a good one!

Lunch

Onto the food fun!

Today’s lunch included tuna salad that was a bit different from the tuna salad I usually make.

Tuna Salad Remix

I combined a packet of StarKist Tuna Creations sweet & spicy tuna with a large squirt of light Miracle Whip.

I topped a whole wheat Pepperidge Farms deli flat with the tuna salad and a large handful of spinach to complete my tuna sandwich.

On the side I enjoyed fresh cucumber slices that were nice and cool (…as a cucumber 😉 ) and grape tomatoes for some added nutrition.

Sadie was more than a little intrigued…

Cucumbers + tomatoes = Perfect summer produce

Question of the Afternoon

What kitchen appliance do you use most often?

I use my blender the most, but my griddle is definitely a close second! Let’s hope that once I get a decent food processor, that’ll be high on my list, too!

Breakfast Bagelwich + Giveaway!

This post is chock-full of FUN STUFF!

First, your regularly scheduled morning blogging… 🙂

Workout

Today’s workout was very entertaining. I didn’t get bored once, which is a little rare for 50 minutes of straight cardio.

I started my workout on the treadmill with 35 minutes of incline walking and running… All mixed up!

35 minute alternate incline walking + running workout:

After treadmill time, I hopped on the elliptical with Real Simple magazine and cranked out another 15 minutes of light cardio.

Breakfast

Last night Alternative Bagels were buy one get one free at the grocery store, so I snagged two bags of ’em!

I love the sweet wheat bagels. They’re the perfect size and have only 110 calories with 7 grams of filling fiber. Not too shabby for a bagel, huh?

I topped my toasted bagel with Justin’s maple almond butter and sliced strawberries for a yummy breakfast bagelwich.

(Half of this pack went directly into my mouth and didn’t quite make it on top of the bagel. 😉 )

Tuesday's Breakfast

It was deeeelish!
