Orange Cranberry Almondine Couscous

Fit Tip Tuesday!

When you eat yogurt and cottage cheese, do not discard the whey (the watery part that separates out and sits on top). It contains the B vitamins and minerals but almost no fat. So stir the whey back into your yogurt or cottage cheese.

I had an awesome PiYo class this morning. As always, I credit the instructor. She makes the class enjoyable. I didn’t have time to run by the store today so I threw a few things together for something new…


These are frozen veggie patties made from fresh vegetables. You can heat them anyway you like, but I think they taste best grilled or baked in the oven. 🙂

We LOVE couscous! We have it often as a side in our house, so I was looking for some different ways to prepare it. I decided to use one of my Salad Pizzaz! toppings in our garlic and herb couscous. It was so refreshing.
