Friday Favorites-Home Dinner Edition

So lately I've been reading a lot more blogs about healthy eating and fitness. A few of my favorites include Megan, Christina, and Emily, you should definitely check them out! On Friday at work I was catching up on blog reading and thanks to some inspiration from them and my Mom I went to Meijer after work to get a healthy, quick dinner. I was in and out in 30 min and with only 3 bags, I think it's a record.

I've always loved MorningStar products and they were on sale (2 products for $7)! I got some bacon, chicken patties, chicken fingers, and burgers. I also picked up some fab steamers and sweet potato fries.
I also needed some fresh produce and good snack food for classes this week. Thankfully blackberries and blueberries were on sale and the snack packs look rally good and come in handy containers. Combined with some Chobani yogurt, 100 pack cheese cubes and bagels I'm set for the week :)
I also picked up some sushi for a little taste. Meijer sells this 12 pack California roll for only $5.50! It's not the most amazing sushi but it satisfies the need for a little taste. I may have eaten some after this picture... it looked and tasted amazing!
Mary highly recommended the LaraBar, chocolate coconut flavor, and I love the KIND bars. Full of fiber and organic ingredients. Can't wait to eat these.
For dinner I decided to have a chicken patty, sweet potato fries, and veggies. I really wanted avocado on my sandwich but wanted a little kick to it. I mixed 1 avocado with 2 tablespoons of low-fat ranch dressing and a little lime juice. It's amazing if I do say so myself.
My amazing dinner. It was filling without being heavy. The sweet potato fries are to die for and at 150 calories/serving I can easily fit them into my diet.

What is one of your favorite, quick dinners?
* This is in the top 5, along with pasta with sauce and salad, and tortilla-encrusted fish from Costco.

Do you have any special sauces?
* I always have my grandma's BBQ sauce on hand. It has mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, and some spices... I put it on everything.

What are some of your favorite blogs to read? I need suggestions!
