Holey Donuts and Shrimp, Veggies & Spaghetti Squash

I’m glad you guys enjoyed the larabar reviews! I'm not positive when the new bars will officially be out (the website just says SOON- any help lara)? Work went by quick again today (fabulous). After, I ran a few errands, but mostly relaxed! I also received a sweet package- 3 boxes of Holey Donuts (low fat, gourmet goodies) from a contest I won at Soap & Chocolate. Thank you Diana! I plan to bring these into work tomorrow to share!!


For dinner I made spaghetti squash (micro waved, directions below) with steamed cauliflower/broccoli, boiled shrimp, and a little pasta sauce. Simple, easy, delicious! Unmixed:


Mixed up:

Spaghetti Squash Microwave Directions:

Cut squash in half and remove the seeds. Put in a glass (or other microwaveable) dish cut side down with 1/4 cup water. Cover with a paper towel and cook on high for 10 minutes.

I also ate some cantaloupe and PB. I have a little bit of housework to finish, but other than that I really plan to just relax! What are you doing tonight?

I am watching SYTYCD tonight! Never heard of those donuts, but I actually don't like donuts:) Glad you had another quick day at work, I wish my days would fly back. Work is a drag lately.

Holy Donuts-these sound so cool, I've never heard of them. I can't wait to hear what you think of them.

Have a great relaxing evening my dear. I think I shall go dig into some fruit and then call it a day.

so jealous of your holey donuts! I want to try them so badly, but they're too expensive. And 3 boxes would last my forever (and clutter up my freezer)

tonigh is tv night here- so you think you can dance followed by top chef. :)

I worked on my other blog some (Hoosier Beer Geek) and the hubs made gazpacho.

I love spaghetti squash though - yum!

Mandy said...

I so wanted to order some Holey Donuts today from their website... they were selling everything for $5... and I was pretty excited to finally try them... until my shipping cost more than my order! :( Oh well.. maybe someday!

Enjoy yours :) Congrats on all the prizes!

I'm just hanging on the couch with the hubby right now... watching Yes, Man!

It's great people make attempts at making everything healthy...including donuts! I've never tried salad with pasta sauce...sounds delicious.

The Laras are meant to be hitting shelves in August, but I know a few people have found them :D

Congrats on winning the giveaway! Those donuts sound great!

Hmm, tonight? Packing!

wholebodylove said...

Simple, healthy, delicious...that's my favorite kind of dish! I haven't been able to try holey donuts myself. But, after looking at their website, I think my mom would really love them. I may send her some for her birthday!

Ada said...

Oh man, your dinner looks great! I absolutely love the combination of the shrimp and spaghetti squash, what a good idea! You always have such healthy and colorful meals:)

I've wanted to try Holey Donuts though, to be honest, I'm not much of a donut gal. I look forward to your review!

Yum Yucky said...

Yes! It's SYTYCD tonight. When no one is around I pretend I'm on the show doing sexy dance moves. But, Holy Doughnuts! Don't tell anyone I told you that.

lesley said...

I relaxed with the hubby last night for the little bit of time we had to relax ... it was nice!

Your veggies and spaghetti squash look delish ...and so quick and easy!

healthy ashley said...

I won Holey Donuts from a giveaway, too! I already have plans to share them in David's office :) Three dozen donuts do not need to be on my kitchen counter with me home alone ALL DAY!

Holly said...

Donuts that are good for you? Get out!! That is awesome. I love me some donuts but don't eat them too often.

I've yet to do the spaghetti squash - do you use acorn squash? It looks SO GOOD whenever I see pics of it.

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Oh my goodness--I looove Holey Donuts! I try to order them only once in awhile because they are dangerously good :-) (and I don't think I would be able to share em'!!)

Krista said...

I'd have to share the donuts, too or I'd eat them all myself!

Cantaloupe sounds so good. It has been a while since I've had any. Just caught the Lara Bar review as well. The new flavors sounds so great. I'm looking forward to trying them!

Esi said...

I have been hearing of those Holey Donuts for a while (think I saw it first on Daily Candy). How were they????

Palidor said...
