Its that time of week again! WIAW whoop whoop! Big, Ginormous, thanks to Jenn for putting this together each week!
Also I will most definitely be doing re-takes for my picture. Guess who looks like she is winking in her school photo? (Hey, I blinked!…with one eye…
Since school is starting so soon, I’ve been trying new things and really playing up the variety and presentation of my meals, to enjoy the prettiness of them before lunches become leftovers stuffed in tupperware:) Plus its just more fun!
Note: These are eat from throughout the week, that I managed to get pics of. Not included are many snacks and some of the repeat meals/meals when I was too hungry to neat or with people that it would be totes awkward to whip out my camera and take a picture of my food. so is life.
Carrot Cake Oat Bake! I mixed oat bran with a flax egg and carrot puree plus flavors, chopped carrot, coconut and raisins, baked it, then I topped it with vanilla almond butter (hold up can I take a moment to express my newfound love that is Justin’s vanilla almond butter? It tastes like frosting. I eat it on everything. Even on top of breakfast smoothies) Easily my fav brekie all week!
Okay I didn’t make this one, but its so beautiful! My sister was in town so we went to a chocolate breakfast (except brunch) at 24K Chocolat Cafe. I had a steel cut oatmeal and quinoa bowl with creme bruleed bananas, rice milk and mayan sipping chocolate at the ready for pouring over. I love this place!
Non-Breakfast eats:Hummus, sweet n spicy mustard, bell pepper and basil sammy, plus a salad and a whole bunch of cherries:) (not even joking when I say I have eaten a LOT of cherries this week. One time I counted 35 pits in my bowl after lunch. And I still went back for a few more. Summer Staple: fresh fruit)
Dinner at Fresh Choice (for a Christian Vegetarian meet-up group my mom started). Playing with my food : I like to make a game, how many veggies can I pile on a salad before the tomatoes start rolling off?
How cute is this baby avocado? It was smaller than my palm, and they had a whole bowlful! I may or may not have one that I took from the bowl traveling around in my purse for emergency need-of-guacamole situations 😉
Not as pretty but I had fun making it! (and eating with
my hands a baby (appetizer) fork) sweet potatoes with hummus, smoked paprika, and salsa and lemon-thyme asparagus. I also had some cucumbers dipped in honey mustard and had fun finding out my dogs also like cucumbers (to the list of cauliflower, squash, summer squash, apple, peanut butter, sweet potato, et cetera et cetera:) )
Tonight I was playing around in the kitchen and came up with my next flavor of Ice Cream! How does that fit into summer staples? Well, The flavor is a staple of nearly every American summer (think fluffy white objects, sharpened sticks (often found on the ground) and fire. Sounds so much more dangerous that way hahahaha)
