TERRA Chips Accomplishments Giveaway

Good morning! How are you today on this midweek day?

My week started out slow and easy on Monday, but has revved up fast! Yesterday was filled with BIC work and training appointments. On busy days, it’s sometimes hard to do anything but go to the meetings/work/appointments on my schedule, you know, like cook dinner! But yesterday I managed to muster in some time to whip up a delicious Indian feast!


On Monday, I had made some brown rice for the week:


And the sauce:



And then last night when I got done training, I fried up the eggplant in a little EVOO on the stove, added the sauce, and simmered until warm:


Deeelicious! The recipe for the sauce and the whole recipe will go up on the recipes tab (as well as some other recipes this Friday.)


I served it atop the rice and with a piece of Trader Joe’s Tandoori Naan.


I never cook on a Tuesday night! It felt like I accomplished something out of the norm for a Tuesday night. Of course meetings and jobs are important, but it’s nice to make the time for a home cooked meal 🙂




In yesterday’s post, I mentioned there would be a delicious giveaway soon.   

Well, today it’s sooooon 😀

Stephanie from TERRA has offered one of my readers a TERRA chip prize pack worth $25 of TERRA chips, a martini glass inspired serving dish, and a summer entertaining guide!

The chip varieties include:

• Terra a la Mexicana – The latest addition to the Terra Exotic Mix line-up is this classic mix of vegetable chips seasoned with a piquant blend of tomato, black bean and roasted garlic flavors.

• Terra Original – Terra Original is made up of the classic mix of Taro, Sweet Potato, Yuca, Batata, Parsnip, and Ruby Taro.

• Terra Blues – Packed with flavor, Terra Blues are flavorful yet but with 40 percent less fat than the leading brand of potato chips and are made with naturally blue potatoes. A vibrant bluish-purple in color with a slightly nutty flavor, these Terra Blues® Potato Chips are deliciously different and the Official Snack of JetBlue Airways®.

• Terra Exotic Harvest with Sea Salt – This earthy exotic harvest features a medley of flavorful blue potato, sweet carrots and Japanese kabocha squash. 

So far, I’ve tried the Terra Blues


and the Terra a la Mexicana


and they’re both delicious and healthy tasting 😀 The chips are made straight from vegetables like blue potatoes, parsnips, yuca, kabocha and more. And the ingredients are stellar!

  2. I went out this a.m. and ran 4 miles. I REALLY didn’t want to, and wanted to turn around and only do 3. But I pushed through it, pretending it was the last 2 miles of my marathon in Ocotober. Like I am just going to quit the marathon! I am proud I pushed through to finish the full 4.

  12. I tweeted about the giveaway!

  13. Today I passed up the desire to eat fries for lunch (hungover) and had healthy Panera instead. I fear that might be all I accomplish today though, haha.

    The Indian looks delish!

  14. I went to bed at 330 am after returning from our honeymoon at 1030 pm and sweeping up 10 gallons of water from our laundry room carpet (thanks to a shoddy washer hose). Oh, we also found ants in one of the bedrooms so we had to clear out the bedding and set up some killer “ant traps.” I got up at 8 and have since moved our washer/dryer out of the laundry room, torn up the carpet and been grocery shopping. :/ haha

  15. The bootcamp instructor at gym complimented me on my performance in class. He said: ‘You did real well in the class” Thats my accomplishment for the day!

  22. I got in a workout that I wasn’t planning on getting in! Yeah..
