Hey guys!

WOW! I cannot believe the response from my Target model post yesterday! The article got picked up by HLN, ABC News, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Good Morning America and Perez Hilton just to name a few. Thanks to everyone for tweeting me and facebooking me that you saw it on the news in your country! I am so happy that now the general public knows more about how advertisers and media REALLY DO alter images to make models look even thinner than they already are in order to sell more clothes or more magazines.

Apparently when Target was approached by news sources, the rep said, “This was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize. We have removed the image from our website.”

Yup the image was indeed removed Tuesday morning. Good thing I grabbed some screen caps before it was gone! I wonder what picture will be up next. It will be interesting to see how Target deals with this one. I really do hope that companies embrace the power that they have to DO GOOD. Sure the bottom line matters, but not at the expense of young girls’ views of what beautiful means. Because we keep getting bombarded with one type of look (a thin model body) we begin to believe that what we see on the covers of mags is what’s expected of us too.

Plus, who said that selling a bathing suit on a healthy, toned body would sell worse than a waif-like body? None is better than the other – the problem is when we begin to play the photoshop game.

Anyway! Today, I have a fun cooking video to share with you! My friend Taryn Southern stopped by the Quest kitchen to bake up some yummmmmmy Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches…and lemme tell you…they were DIVINE!! (And really cute)

peanut butter cookie sandwiches

RECIPE

Cookies:

1. Soften two Quest Protein bars (I used Peanut Butter Supreme, Taryn used Chocolate Peanut Butter) briefly by microwaving them, 15 seconds or less should do.

2. Roll the softened bars out into thin sheets.

3. Cut the sheets into your favorite cookie shape.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 5 min or until crispy

5. Let the baked cookies cool.

Peanut Butter Filling:

– 2 tbsp peanut butter flavored protein powder

– 1 1/2 tsp to 2 tsp of Truvia or Xylosweet

– A pinch of salt

– 2 1/2 tsp non-fat plain Greek yogurt

– 1 tsp un-sweetened peanut butter

– 1/2 tsp water

Simply combine all of the filling ingredients and mix on high until uniform, 1-2 minutes should do.

Cookie sandwich time!

1. Spread the filling onto one cookie

2. Take a second cookie and gently press them together to make a sandwich.

Chocolate Coating (optional):

– 1 1/2 ounces (1/4 to 1/2 of a bar) of unsweetened chocolate (baking chocolate)

– 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

– 1 1/2 tbsp of vanilla flavored protein powder

– 1 1/2 tbsp Truvia or Xylosweet

1. Carefully and slowly melt the unsweetened chocolate. A double boiler at medium to low heat will work. You can also use a microwave at low level and in short time periods.

2. Warm up the heavy cream. It should be warm to the touch but not hot.

3. Mix the warm cream and melted chocolate together until uniform.

4. Add in the vanilla protein powder and Truvia and mix well.

5. Before it cools too much, drizzle or coat your sandwich cookies with the chocolate coating.

    If I didn’t possess the will power, I would be so unhealthy. My household cooks and eats so bad. As I am waiting this my mom is frying pork chops. The house smells so nasty, it makes me sick thinking about what is going to be consumed tonight for dinner. But I will not be partaking in dinner. And I haven’t eaten dinner with my family in months because of the way they cook. It’s little things, butter in the pan so it doesn’t stick, crisco (lard) so it taste better, margin slathered bread. The other morning mom asked if I would like a veggi scramble, sure I said. It was eggs, veggies, chopped potatoes, with mountain high shredded cheese, oh and cooked in a pan of veggi oil. I was mortified. I love my family, I really do but the eating habits are astonishing. So I continue to make my meals before or after their meal times. I try to offer my meals to them or let me do the cooking tonight but they just won’t have it. Here is to the will power! Smart eating. Healthy eating. Clean eating.

I also have a deadly addiction with peanut butter (once finished an entire jar in 4 days) so I love how I can get a little of all these things in one!

    Hey next month could you maybe make your theme kindness? It would be really cool if your calendar not only included your awesome workouts but daily reminders to do something kind for ourselves and others, have you seen the 21 day kindness challenge? Maybe some of the body image issues and self-hate would go away if we all were a little kinder to ourselves and others
    Thanks!

  • Tessi says:

    Oreo Cake !!! I would die for it! Yolo

  • Shannon says:

    I would have to say my one of my mom’s bengali dishes:

    chicken (or goat) biryani. It’s basically a dish that comes with everything, and we just eat with a tomato salad and a kabab (not a shish kebab, it’s more like a meat patty with spices).

    ANYWAY, the biryani takes 6 hours, and is basically a pot of layers of cooked/flavored rice, various spices and salt, rosewater, the biryani meat curry (she usually makes chicken), fried potatoes, green chilies, raisins, fried onions (they’re nice and golden and AWESOME), and what else am I forgetting??…oh and prunes. It sounds weird, but the combination of all the flavors are truly amazing.

    Thank with a tomato salad, is what I could live on forever.

    Now I’m hungry. haha

The Easter bunny always happened to have shown up when we got back to the house. It is such a lovely memory and tradition, so my favorite YOLO meal is as glazed donut!

  • Dalena says:

    but then again, maybe its just the humble deep fried chicken drumstick, with its crispy, flaky crumb and moist succulent meat which effervesces majestic mists of mouth watering steam which hits the insides of your nose. Then comes the delicate crunch of the batter before the delightful burn of the hot protein.
    One minute there’s a mountain of golden chicken neatly nested on top of a ceramic island. The next minute, the mountain has vanished leaving nothing behind but lonely and desolate porcelain plate with only tiny golden crumbs left for companionship. Little does the plate know, that those crumbs will soon vanish just like its predecessors.

    Hey Cassey! My ALL TIME FAVORITE YOLO food is ice-cream. I could seriously eat this stuff forever. The creamy cold texture that leaves a nice, sweet, refreshing path down your throat. No matter how sad or mellow i’m that day ice-cream (like no kidding) made my day 100x better. I could fangirl over ice cream (don’t worry I won’t ;D) It’s a comfort food that I just love. Back then (before my change into a healthy lifestyle :D) I would eat a pint (maybe more) at once. It was just soooooo addicting. I personally LOVE chocolate chip cookie dough. I mean it’s ice-cream and (ANOTHER LOVELY YOLO FOOD) cookie dough in one (can I get an amen?!?!) There’s also the AMAZING starbucks flavors (have you tried them?) I loooooovvvveee (with a passion) the hot chocolate one. And when you got to an ice cream shop and you have the chance to MIX CANDY into…oh.my.gawd. EVERY birthday I would go to marble slabs get a birthday cake flavor (it IS my birthday :D) and get chopped up KitKat pieces in it. THAT IS SOMETHING FROM THE HEAVENS. I promise you I could cry from eating this because it’s soooo good. So (mostly) giving up my favorite YOLO food in return for a healthier me kinda a broke me. I mean who doesn’t miss ice-cream?!? But that’s why i’m so glad I can make banana ice-cream (SO GOOD AS WELL) instead and still be eating clean. anyways as you can see my favorite YOLO food is (surprise, surprise) ice-cream! wow I can’t believe I typed that much about ice-cream…I feel like I wrote an autobiography about my relationship with ice-cream….awkward…oh well…anything for ice-cream:D

  • Sally says:

    Oh man its such a hard decision to pick my favourite YOLO food! But i think i will have to go with a deep fried grill cheese sandwich with bacon strips inside.

    I would have to say chocolate lava cake. I love it, but defiantly can not eat it all the time. :)

  • Dawn says:

    Hey Cassey!! Name a YOLO food? The comment box isn’t even big enough. I mean I could just shorten it and say the whole buffet aisle. But to just name a “few” I LOVE:
    -Pizza (with a thick hot (caliente;D) layer of gooey cheese on it *drools* and spinach (that healthy huh?) OR STUFFED PIZZA (have you tried it?) OOOOOO I just looovee stuffed pizza
    -Ice cream- side note: I love (like LOVEEE) ice cream so much I would use to eat a whole pint in one sitting (don’t worry I don’t do it anymore). I LOVE Starbucks’ hot chocolate flavor it’s soooooo good (I could write an essay on how good it is- like seriously it’s amazing- my mouth is forming saliva just typing this…)
    -Nutella (I was one of those ‘cool’ kids that got to try Nutella before it came to America, like when I was a child and found out that there were places in the world (Germany to be specific) that ate CHOCOLATE with bread for breakfast, lunch, or snack (maybe even dinner?) and it was socially acceptable did I fall hard. Nutella was like the ultimate kid’s dream -eat chocolate as a meal. Nutella is a YOLO food that still has a special place in my hear *dramatic tear roll*
    -Hot fries- not hot Cheetos (I just find them too crunchy for my liking) I would eat almost a whole family sized (yes FAMILY sized) bag of this goodness with my friend till I was stuffed and on the edge of vomiting (I know naasstty) but I love spicy things (including siracha;D) that feeling of numbness on your lips from the burning and how you cant just stop eating them I just LOVED it.
    -burritos (they’re just good…this doesn’t need an explanation…I mean they’re just good.)
    -Donuts- sugar dense raspberry jelly filled fried donuts covered in powdered sugar- that just screams YOLO
    -Funnel cakes (ALWAYS got one when I went to the flea market- they have the BEST)
    -cookies n’ cream milkshakes (thank you Chick-fil-a for this creamy goodness…they have the BEST milkshakes!)
    -hot pretzels (can I get an amen for this heaven sent piece of amazingness- cinnamon has to be the most amazing flavor)
    -fried chicken (when it with a side of mash potatoes and a honey glazed biscuit….I just die…literally fall into my grave from overload of flavor)
    -CHEESECAKE (plain, chocolate, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry.. i could go forever…)
    -pie (pumpkin pie is the best hands-down -your argument is invalid if you disagree)
    -PASTA (when its with shrimp and some niceeee creamy sauce..gawwwwddd its sooo good)
    -Chinese food- chicken beef shrimp whatever with some fried rice and a egg roll- I could eat that for the rest of my life
    -tiramisu (a cake SOAKED in COFFEE, who could say no to that?!?!)
    -KITKAT (asdfghjkl; this is my FAVORITE chocolate…like NO KIDDING I want to die and be buried with a bunch of KitKat- and I REALLY want to try the green tea flavored one from Japan. GREEN TEA like oh. my. god. can we get an amen here?!?!)
    That’s all the one off the top of my head…and I know I’ll think of a billion more when I post this comment…oh well this list is YOLO enough…like if I ate all of this stuff in one sitting I’ll really live only once and probably die from a food coma. :D

    I say my YOLO meal would have to be the sweet cheese rolls from Portos bakery in Glendale, CA

    Those things are so yummy!!! I cant live without them!!!

  • Kathleen says:

    My mom’s homemade flan (:
    I actually recall a time when my dad jokingly said my mom should open up her own flan shop. It’s definitely something she would only make on special occasions, but it’s oh so delicious.

  • sydnie says:

    A YOLO meal is all-you-can-eat korean bbq. But afterwards, I’m in a food coma from all that meat and I eat vegetarian the rest of the week.

  • Kathleen says:

    Walnut pastries from this little Korean bakery in San Jose, CA called Cocohodo!

    They’re little balls of red bean wrapped in a soft, cake-like outer shell, and when you bite into it, you can feel the crunch from the walnut. My boyfriend works there and he made me a whole box of them once… I demolished them in like a week. Nbd.

  • Melissa says:

    My grandma’s fudgy chocolate chip brownies… I don’t even want to think of the about of calories in them, but if I get to choose my last meal before I die, I’d definitely pick her brownies.

  • Ivon says:

    One of my favorite YOLO meals is a bacon wrapped hot dog :)

  • Ayumi says:

    Most definitely a double avocado bacon cheeseburger with extra onions. With chili cheese fries with extra onions, and ranch on the side!

    My favorite YOLO “meal” is presently a:
    <3 Tarro shake with tapioca pearls <3
    from the Tea Garden in Minneapolis :)

  • Kathleen says:

    Homemade Vietnamese pho! <3

    My mom makes it for me every time I come home from college. Oh how I miss homemade food!

  • Krys says:

    Chocolate silk pie!!

  • Chloe Lim says:

    There are two food groups in the world; the one you put cheese on, and the one you put chocolate on. And that is basically my whole life story.

  • Chloe Lim says:

    Chocolate truffles. And anything with chocolate mint. Chocolate is basically a gift from God.

  • Tessa says:

    My favorite YOLO meal is every holiday meal I spend with my family and friends. I come from a Wisconsin farm family and needless to say during the holidays we all cook to show out love! My dad making some kind of meat, moms caramel corn and bread, auntie K’s mashed potatoes, and all the cookies! Never a healthy affair, but always worth it. Love!

  • Jenny says:

    Dim sum! Especially glutinous rice and shiao mai

  • Chloe Lim says:

    Let us not forget about warm home-made brownies. I mean, those things are gooooood. Did I also forget to mention chocolate chip cookies? WARM chocolate chip cookies? Those things were the epitome of my childhood.

  • Janice says:

    instant noodles. fast, easy, and yummy … but pretty darn bad for you

  • zainab says:

    ice cream!

  • zainab says:

    lazagna

  • Lay says:

    I love anything sweet! So one of my fav yolo meals would be… icecream macarons

  • zainab says:

    in n out!

  • Lay says:

    Whenever I would go eat out with my friends, I would make sure that I get dessert! No matter if it’s vegan or not.

  • Marketa says:

    It is so hard to chose only one YOLO food! But what comes first to my mind are fruit dumplings, especially the strawberry ones made from raised batter with plenty of sugar, curd cheese and melted butter. Soooo amazing summer cheat. My mom makes the best in the world but I haven’t had them fir ages because my brother is allergic to wheat.

  • Lay says:

    Homemade PHO

  • Elaine says:

    Nachos with black beans, guacamole, salsa and sour cream to start and double chocolate brownies with cookies and cream ice cream to finish!

  • Ayumi says:

    Mine would most definitely be a double avocado bacon cheeseburger with extra onions. With chili cheese fries with extra onions, and ranch on the side!

    From this amaaaazing place called Tops in Pasadena, CA!

  • Ara Cho says:

    Hands down,
    hamburger with buns replaced with krispy kreme donuts

  • sydnie says:

    Babyback prime ribs, fall off the bone = heaven. I usually just eat fish/chicken for meat, but sometimes, I those don’t cut it. I haven’t had ribs in forever.!

  • Lena says:

    Oatmeal raising cookies! They’re not really a YOLO meal, more like a YOLO snack..:) I’ve been trying to make some healthier versions recently but the new cookie shop down the street makes it so hard to resist!

  • French Fries. :)

  • Kathleen says:

    Grilled pb&j sammich.

    When I first discovered these I raised my hands to the sky and said THANK THE LAWD

  • Janice says:

    I LOVE CORN DOGS

  • Ayumi says:

    My meal would consist of a double avocado bacon cheeseburger with extra onions. With chili cheese fries, with extra onions and ranch on the side!

    From this amazing place called Tops in Pasadena, CA!

    Ramen noodles, one of my favorite YOLO meals when in a hurry. Also, living in a dorm, I get hungry. And poor.

  • Ariana says:

    Cheese nachos are definitely a favorite! Cheese nachos with salsa and guacamole, YUM.

  • Priscilla says:

    french fries dip in ice cream! who has try this?

  • manyan says:

    Depends on the day! Skinny pizza’s Squid Ink Seafood Pizza usually does it for me :P Or Chai Tao Kway (Fried carrot cake with black sweet sauce with a healthy doze of garlic) MMMMM. Singapore/Malaysia food is to die for – unhealthy and super yums. The kit would totally make my new kitchen healthy and super clean!! (moving into marital home with hubby, gonna make him do blogilates with me in our new living room!! whee!)

  • Ayumi says:

  • Elise says:

    I love carrot cake! mmmmm…..

  • Anna says:

    oreo blizzards for sure <3

  • Priscilla says:

    For breakfast PANCAKES are by far my favorite one! they are so easy to make it is an ideal option when rushing
