Sorry I’m a bit late to the party, but hey I made it! Yes, for the first time since school started, my week day workload is finally somewhat manageable, and I couldn’t wait to show you my pretty food pictures! Come on, tell me you don’t do that too.
“I think this is such a pretty food picture but I have to save it for Wednesday!!!”
Truth. Anyway, even though it is still, albeit barely, August, I’ve started to crave fall. Pumpkin, cinnamon, boots and cozy blankets and tea. Yes. Alas, its still summer. So my eats are a little mood-swingy haha!!See on the summer spectrum, I still love big green smoothies -this is a melon-pineapple-matcha-mint and ginger combo (plus lemon and spinach). So refreshing!But I’ve also been getting into oatmeal a lot more recently. Solution? Summer fruit oats! Topped with blueberries, grapes, kiwi and watermelon, because why not? Eeeeexactly.Still, this morning, all bets were off. Its fall enough for me!!! Pumpkin spice oats with apples:)My main meals vary, anything from ‘hippie bowls’ -rice, veggies, beans, nooch, random condiments etc…To spring rolls (ahem summer…)And back to warm, orangey deliciousness!! Broccoli, falafel and sweet potatoes topped with tahini sauce and spicy ketchupEven my drinks have gone from sweet and creamy (ever mixed zevia root beer with iced almond milk coffee? Do it. Its like a grown up root beer float)To fruity green smoothies! Watermelon, lime, mint, ginger, spinach and ice Soo good
I’ve been hoarding as much fresh summer fruit as I can before its all gone…
But alas, pumpkin strikes again!! Did you know that a box of spice cake mix plus a can of pumpkin makes the best, cheater pumpkin bread/cake ever? Bonus points for adding chopped apple!!
But of course, we cannot forget the ice cream. Chocolate (and cinnamon -see its everywhere) homemade ice cream with peanut butter sauce
And lots of Cookie Dough… Always.
I know its still Summer, but have you started to “crave” Fall? Confession: Its gotten so bad that I had pumpkin/orange at every meal today. Pumpkin oats, sweet potatoes at lunch, kabocha at dinner, and pumpkin pie ice cream (home made, once I tweak the recipe I’ll post it!) for dessert!! Commence my lovely self-tanning habits of Autumn!
