I promise this is the last post about V-day related things...but are you wondering what to do with your leftover candy/sweets?
Make a little trail mix!
Simply combine these ingredients:
- 1/2 to 3/4 part Whole grain cereal (I used Kashi Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal)
- 1/8 part Chocolate of your choice (M&Ms work great)
- 1/8 to 1/4 part nuts or seeds (I used sunflower seeds)
- Dried fruit is another great addition! I should have added some craisins leftover from my Rasp Craisin Cookies
Lovingly Healthy Cookie Bars.

That I love to bake and not only healthy items? That I indulge my sweet and savory tooth(s)?
It's funny to me because I thought that my blog name Diary of a Semi-Health Nut would make it clear that I am not, nor will I ever be, a strict eater.
The Daddio brought some cake pops to work and since I was posting about them, he gave them my blog address (also because he is an awesome dad and likes to brag). One co-worker asked, "How is this healthy?" No one ever said it was silly! It's a yummy treat for Valentine's Day!
Another comment on my blog made me think the reader thought I was a "clean eater." Far from it! I admire those that are able to "eat clean." But I am not able to (or simply unwilling to) follow this diet plan to the fullest. (Fellow blogger's post on clean eating.)
Sometimes I get in a baking kick and will post tons of yummy treats (some healthier than others) and other times I will be talking about my running or semi-healthy meals I make.
I hope that's okay with my readers because this is what makes me comfortable. I blog about what is on my mind and going on in my life where it intersects food, health and fitness (even family and friends at times).
|Let me have my cake! ;-)|
I think I would have anxiety if I were told I can't write about this or that.
It's my semi-healthy diary folks! :-)

Do you blog? Do you find it difficult to blog about only specific items?
