A bowl of fruity oatmeal (mixed frozen berries plus extra blueberries and lemon stevia) with flax and a ginormous scoop of cashew butter (I make it myself and its half the cost of store bought). I love when it melts all over the oats like icing -but I save it for last anyway haha!
Okay well this was actually Saturday’s lunch, but the same basic idea haha! Salad with avocado, veggies, kabocha squash, chickpeas, cranberries and honey mustard -just switch out the squash for rice and stick it in tupperware and its mondays lunch! Still obsessed with the cranberry/mustard combo -sue me 😉
I had an appointment after school, so I grabbed a snack to go. An apple and ‘trail mix’ -two different cinnamon cereals (cinnamon cheerios taste like churros) plus chocolate almonds. Best ever.
Ok ok. This was Sunday night’s dinner because what I made on Monday was ugly (but tasty. BBQ Tempeh, portobello, and brussels sprouts stir fry 🙂 ) Baked sweet potato topped with onion/black bean/ corn mixture, salsa, and lots of guac! Side of brussels sprouts and cheater kale chips (if you use dino kale you don’t even have to piece it apart!)
Also I don’t have a picture of my night time snack that night so how about a pretty picture of chocolate gingerbread cake and sliced apple? I mean, I almost always have some form of fruit + chocolate at night anyway (Unless its a soy yogurt bowl -i go more fruity) sooo basically its all the same yeah?
Ok ok. I suck at this picture one days worth of eats thing…so look! More random food photos!
Tropical Grrreeeeeennnnnn monster (frozen banana and mango, coconut water, spinach, watercress, parsley, ginger, and some Vega tropical protein powder)
Every time I eat OIAJ I secretly think, “my breakfast is cooler than all the other breakfasts!” Anyone else? I had some this morning too…my stepdad and I go through nut butter like it’s our job, and I get all the jars 😉
Culture clash dinner: Black bean chili on top of soba noodles. We called it mexican spaghetti. And then ate it with chopsticks.
Sticky Orange Tempeh (<this is awesome. It was a little salty so I doubled the OJ and added a drop of orange stevia) on top of shredded dijon b’sprouts and kabocha.
And to end the post- cake and (trader joes soy) ice cream from my mommy’s birthday.
I’ve been challenging myself, adding in more fats, and just trying not to focus on whether a food is necessarily always healthy. Cheerios aren’t organic, and ice cream isn’t sugar free, but it all balances out. Isn’t that what really counts?
