Five for Friday: Link Love Edition

Yes, it’s another Five for Friday post.  I promise I’m not feeling uninspired.  In fact, it’s quite the opposite.  I have so much to share that I try and condense it down into one post.  Hopefully (at least) one of the five floats your boat.

1. I made Whole Foods Market’s Cabbage and Cheddar Gratin Saturday for dinner.  Kevin and I were both pleasantly surprised. I didn’t take any pictures since it wasn’t particularly photogenic; that’s a pic from WF’s site.

Note: I probably used less spice/herb, and I shredded my own cheese from a block of white Wisconsin cheddar.

2. Brittany posted a link to a comical post by Sohee Lee Fitness.  Check it out here.  Now.

3. I created my version of the LiveFit turkey muffins on Sunday.  Delicious!  I spiced them up a bit with cayenne pepper and a little horseradish, and they were almost too spicy for me.  (Hint: Eat the veggies first.)

Oh, and the recipe calls for 2 lbs lean turkey, but I used 1 lb turkey and 1 can white beans.  Recommended!

4. I found a great warm-up video on Hulu.  It has a 10-minute cardio session focused on arms followed immediately by a 10-minute cardio session focused on abs.  I did the second half before completing a little ab work last night.

5. I wanted to make these Salmon Burgers on Wednesday.  I bought TJ’s canned Alaskan salmon, but I couldn’t do it.  Between the smell, the skin, and the bones, I nearly puked.  I called Kevin into the kitchen to ask him if he minded cooking for me.  He took one look at the salmon and said he wasn’t eating it.

The Brussels sprouts were already roasting in the oven, so we quickly came up with Plan B… of course, Plan B isn’t on the LiveFit plan, but it was pretty darn tasty.  Pasta n’ sprouts.


  • Ever get grossed out in the kitchen?
  • What’s your go-to Plan B meal?

  1. Hahah oh my gosh, salmon’s skin and smell freaks me out a lot too. That’s why I like to order it when I dine out. I don’t have to do the dirty work 😀 Happy Friday!

  2. & thanks for the link love!

  3. LOL! That’s so funny about the salmon. I never buy canned salmon with skin because the skin definitely grosses me out too. 😛

  4. Canned salmon is definitely NOT for me. I don’t think that I ever have tried to make a recipe that I literally couldn’t finish, though. Then again, I’m painfully aware of the ingredients that make my stomach churn.

  6. I don’t get grossed out by food, but I get super grossed out my dishes soaking in the sink. I know it is a necessity, but it is one of my least favorite things. On a brighter note, the sprouts look awesome!

    Plan B is always breakfast food or a salad. It all goes wrong/burns? Pancake time! Hmm, probably might not be the best plan B, that provides a little too much incentive to let things go wrong ;D

  8. I got grossed out by bad chicken once. It took me moths to buy it again.

    Those brussels look goooood!

  9. My plan B meal is always eggs. Frittata, scrambled, or sunny side up over veggies.

  10. Plan B is either a salad, omelet, or cereal (if I am really desperate) 😉

  11. Oh man, I don’t know if I could handle canned salmon with skin and bones…ick. My plan B is usually steamed veggies, couscous, and some random bit of protein I can find in my fridge or freezer.
