Diva { Popcorn }

by Healthy Diva on December 21, 2011


Hope everyone had a great day today <3

I have been drinking green tea as much as possible today, still feeling like poo  :-|

I think I need to get medicine, so I will be taking a trip to the pharmacy here in a little. I sometimes try to fight off a sickness on my own, but with the holidays I don’t need to risk it.

I finished wrapping most of Mike’s gifts, but still have a couple coming in. Feels good to be done christmas shopping and Im excited for Anthony and Mike to open their gifts!

I made a stop at Trader Joe’s today, had to get a couple things for christmas eve at my moms house and I also needed some stuff for here at home. I still need some more things to make these, which Im making for my parents house for christmas eve. Oh they will be so good!

Peppermint pretzel slims – for my moms house at christmas eve

Cracker variety- for my moms at christmas eve, and going to have goat cheese with jam to go with

Peanut butter- for the treat Im making

Hot and sweet mustard- for me, Im obsessed

Very cherry berry blend- for my smoothies and oats, the best!

Chipotle pepper hummus- for me, love this!

Egg white salad- a weekly buy I love!

Crisp rice cereal – for the recipe Im making

Joe’s O’s – Cereal for me, I love this one!

Trader Joe’s rocks, great prices and such yummy stuff! I am planning on making cupcakes too for my parents house for christmas eve, so I need to get ingredients for that tomorrow.

Did you know they named a popcorn after me?!

I found Diva Popcorn today at TJ Maxx while I was picking up some last minute christmas gifts. how cool is it?! I hope it tastes as good too, bummer there was only one bag! Im hoping if I like it, I find it again!

It was made for me  :mrgreen:

Well friends, Im off to get some meds and to rest up! Hope everyone has a great night! <3

{ Question of the night }

Are you making anything special for the holidays?!

Hi! I just started reading your blog and I love you and it (but not in a creepy way like I just made it seem hehe). we just have so much in common. I got married in September and part of our honeymoon was in Maui. You and Mike make such an adorable couple! I was just wondering what measurements and how you make salad dressing out of the hot and sweet mustard. It’s something I think I would really like. I know it’s Christmas and everyone’s crazy busy so if you get a chance, just let me know! Thanks and have a great holiday! Merry Christmas!

Hi Marla! You are so sweet, not creepy at all, I know some creeps but you are not one, ha! Congrats on your recent marriage and wasn’t Maui amazing?!!! We did not want to leave, I wish we lived there, maybe in my dreams, lol.

I use 2 tbsp mustard, 1 tbsp balsamic, and 1 packet of sweetener ( I use stevia ) You can make more by just using more thank 2 tbsps of both, but these measurements work for me!

Thanks for reading! <3

Heya Dollface!! I hope you feel better!! is it a flu?? EEEKKK can’t risk it at the holidays!

Ok, your food / snacks are bomb! I love cereal!! I just made a treat for Treat Friday with Rice Cereal!! WOO HOO!!!!



6 Healthy Diva December 21, 2011 at 9:20 pm

I hope its just a bad cold, we will see ; p I got therma flu tonight to try to fight it, going to pass out and sleep!

Yay for rice cereal treats! <3


7 Anna @ The Guiltless Life December 21, 2011 at 7:22 pm

Feel better girl! Remember – zinc and vitamin C are KEY – they are the first two nutrients our body pulls from when it needs restoring because it’s fighting something :). I have these chewable orange or berry vitamin C and zinc lozenges that you should be able to get from any pharmacy – they’re yum and if I take them right when I feel a sore throat coming on I never get sick. That and ginseng (Cold FX) – brilliant! Hope it helps xxx


8 Healthy Diva December 21, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I got those vitamin c lozenges, actually took them last night too! Thank you girl! Im hoping to fight this! <3 xoxo

that popcorn sounds really interesting! I actually checked out their site (I’m always done for new snacks!) and I wish they had some “sweet” flavors..like kettle corn :)

I’m making individual gingerbread cheesecakes for the holidays :) Wish me luck!

Hi Katie!
Hope you feel better! I have been feeling like poo too (sore throat with a bit of a beginning cough), so i’ve been taking emergen c immunity to try to fight it, and also using cough drops all day long. Hope you found something at the pharmacy that works! Being sick on the holidays is no fun :(
I love the link to the dessert you’re going to make! It looks delicious!
For the holidays i will be going away with my new guy for 10 days (!!!) Too much too long. I’ve been crazy shopping for presents and for cute outfits, and will do my best to make the best of it and have fun! I hope your holiday will be lots of fun too!


30 Healthy Diva December 22, 2011 at 8:37 am

Hi love!

Thank you, I have Hall’s cough drops and I go Thermaflu cough and sore throat, hoping it does the trick! I hope you feel better as well!

OMG, 10 days with your new guy! How awesome and Im so glad things are going SO well with you guys! I feel extremely excited for you, and Im sure you guys will have a great time together!!! You have to let me know how your 10 day vacation with him goes and how your holidays go!

xoxo <3
