When I decided to change my eating habits, I chose foods that I loved, but in different forms.  Bagels and yogurt can be terrible for you, but there are some ways to eat it that are a bit healthier and still satisfying.

I really enjoy Siggi’s skyr yogurt. It’s low carb, low sugar, but very filling and satisfying.

I love making mookies. I call them mookies because it’s a cookie shaped like a muffin. Grab your mini muffin pan and make a few. 
You need :
-12 tbsp butter, melted and cooled to room temperature 
-1/2 cup granulated sugar 
-1 cup brown sugar 
-1 large egg plus 1 yolk
-1 tbsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp salt
-2 1/4 cup flour
-1 tsp cinnamon 
-2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 

Preheat your oven to 325. I spray my mini muffin pan with Pam, lightly. Then, with your standing mixer,  mix the butter,  vanilla extract, eggs , and sugars together. Slowly add the dry ingredients.  Once combined,  add in the chocolate chips.  

Scoop tablespoons of the dough into the pan and then bake for 20 minutes or until they look golden brown. 

Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.  Store in an airtight container.

Frank made flap steak over veggies with a side of homemade kalbi sauce. Just use a pan over high heat to get a nice char. 5 minutes or less on each side creates a beautiful medium to medium rare.

Dinner: Mustard fried chicken thighs with oven roasted corn and mashed potatoes.

When someone asks me what I’m in the mood for, I usually answer with a list of food. Apparently that question should be answered with an activity, like sex. Food is sex. You eat it, you go, ‘oh my god,’ followed up with a ‘yes’ or two, then you end it with leaning back, closing your eyes, and saying, ‘that was so damn good’.
