Let’s take a look at Friday eats shall we? I was selected to participate in a challenge sponsored by Anytime Fitness and given $70 to buy groceries for this challenge.
Berry Breakfast Couscous
Usually I use quinoa to make this. CLICK HERE to see the recipe.
Yesterday I used whole wheat couscous instead of quinoa,
left out the vanilla and topped it with blueberries.
I was going to add peanut butter as well, but skipped it.
