I had a simple strategy going into Easter. I had told my mom that she couldn't buy me any sweets because I knew I would cave and eat them all in one sitting, but she went behind my back and purchased my favorites: reeses peanut butter eggs and braach's eggs. I should have taken a picture of the cute little easter basket she made me for Sunday morning, but I had better things to do...like eating. Even though I ate way too many sweets, which I seem to be doing a lot of lately, I very much enjoyed the company of my aunt and uncle. We normally go to their house for Easter, but we decided to have it at our house. For dessert I had promised my aunt that I would make a healthy brownie recipe. The healthy brownie recipe called for black beans, and yes I did use a 15oz can to make them. They aren't pictured here because they didn't meet my sweet standards. Fortunately for my aunt and uncle, my palette was dissappointed, and they were sent home with the whole batch!
The next day I decided my body needed some pampering after all the processed junk that went into it. Monday after my chemistry exam I decided to make salmon, topped off with a couple tablespoons of peach mango salsa (from costco), and some raw zucchini ribbons topped with a little bit of lawrys season salt.
