Foodie Wednesday: Special K Update & Food Meets Fashion
It’s officially been a week since I started the Special K challenge with SHAPE. I’ve done a good job at sticking to my one meal replacement instead of two (except for Father’s Day, when you have a biological father and a step-father, that’s a busy day and all meals are out of the house…). I also tried a new cereal: the fruit and yogurt kind, and I forgot how much I love that one! It’s just the right hint of sweetness without being too much.
My favorite snack, however, are these crackers.
They are simply delicious. I love eating them by themselves, or with a little bit of cheese and peanut butter. The best part? 24 crackers (which is one serving) is only 120 calories, meaning each cracker only has 5 calories. Awesome.
I only have one week left, so check back for another update on Saturday!
Now on to today’s post.
I love it when two of my passions collide. Thanks to Giada De Laurentiis, that is happening more and more. The petite chef cooks up authentic Italian cuisine on the Food Network and Cooking Channel, serves as a mentor and judge on Food Network Star, and has her own line of products at Target. She also has some great style.
I guess Giada knows we all want to know where her clothes and accessories are from, because her team started posting her different outfits from Food Network Star on her website, which I think is a brilliant idea. I find her style to be easily accessible, laid back (must be from living in California) and not intimidating, especially this casual outfit pictured above from the 8th episode of the competition show. She gives credit to the items she’s wearing, so you can try to find the items (or similar ones) directly with the brands she’s wearing, or you can try and dig up similar ones on your own.
Check back next week to see how I recreate the outfit above and suggestions on how you can do it, too!
