Lil’ Bit Of Basil In Ma Life….

When it comes to making food at home, I’ve been super lazy. I use to be inspired by random things during grocery shopping trips and rush home to cook. Lately, I barely go for grocery trips (Thanks mom!), so I might not as inspired to put a meal together. No matter how simple it could be. The other day I happen to join my mom on a grocery trip and I saw a table full of these little basil pots and I had to buy one. Little I knew, this basil pot would be a start of a crazy run of rustic breakfasts and snacks. Give a hungry Persian girl some inspiration and she’ll run with it…. I’m going to call it, rustic Persian fusion!

Here I Though I Was Being Good!

You know when you’re up late and hungry? It’s too late to eat food and it’s still a long time till breakfast time. So i was experiencing one of those nights and i though I was being good and just settling for some yogurt and fruit, peach is my favorite! So I sat down with my yogurt and continued watching my 2am rerun of Top Gear. This fruity yogurt was a new brand I never heard of, Chobani. I got that day from McEwan and excited about trying it. It tasted different from other brands I’ve tried, creamy yet still felt like I was eating cottage cheese, YUCK! But I still didn’t mind the yogurt and I finished it. After I put the last spoon in my mouth I started reading the labels around the little container and the more I read, the more I felt guilty about eating my healthy snack. Greek yogurt, non-fat, 140 calories!!! What the hell…… That’s a meal!!! So late night snackers be aware, read the label before you eat …
