Abandoned Muffins and Chimpanzees

Sometimes my Mom will abandon half-eaten muffins in the fridge because they're 
too dry to eat... and because she knows I don't succumb to muffin-discrimination 

And the best way to quickly add moisture back into  
muffins is to crumble them on top of a yogurt parfait!

1 cup of plain yogurt mixed with 1/2 cup (thawed) frozen berries, 1/2 dry 

I love how the juice from the thawed frozen berries turned the yogurt pink :)

Followed by a Chicken Salad for Lunch...

Local Free Range Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast from Kildonan Farm

Grilled Chicken mixed with Great Northern Beans,
 Green Apple, Tomato, Cucumber, Lettuce, and Scallions

The dressing was made by blending together 1/5 avocado, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2-3 drops liquid stevia, cayenne and black pepper

Here's a new Green Tea I found recently...

Oothu Garden Green Tea from Choice Organic

Each purchase helps support the Jane Goodall Institute and
 their efforts to protect chimpanzees. Now that i'll drink to :)

Muffin tops are so much tastier than the base. I can understand why your mom leaves half...

Your parfait looks SO GOOD though... mmm....

That dressing idea is fabulous! I must try it soon. And, on a side note, this might be the best blog post title ever in existence :-)

Pink yogurt! YUM! That really looks delicious. And the salad, oh my, I think I'm gonna have one later. Thanks for introducing that Choice green tea, it will not only be good for the health, but you can help the chimpanzees too! :)It's such a nice cause.
