So I’ve lately kinda gotten into the habit of doing WIAW posts every-other-Wednesday (or less often), but then I have so many pictures that these things run kind of long. And I’ve been eating variations of similar things a lot, so its just kind of a lot of repeat pictures. I mean, lately its been smoothies, salads, and anything I can eat with my hands. And dessert. Like, all the time.
So what do I mean by that? Well lets start at breakfast…
Acai Bowl (from a restaurant in Santa Cruz, but you know…still.)
Aaannndddd once in a while, oatmeal. But still topped, as though it is a smoothie bowl. Yes, this is carrot-ginger topped with green apple. I’m weird.
but on the days I didn’t have a smoothie for breakfast, I will usually have one in the afternoon. Lately I’ve been obsessed with a matcha-melon-mint combo with frozen cantaloupe, coconut water, a bit of banana, fresh mint, lemon, ginger, matcha powder, and spinach. mmmm…. so good! Plus it helps soothe my tummy whenever I OD on…
Kabocha. Which happens like, all the time. 😉
Kombucha (melon, on tap) helps too. Plus I like this glass. tangent alert.
What? I just like fruit and veggies okay??
The giant chard made for a chipotle burrito worthy wrap ohmygosh.
The same concept goes for fajita night (also: if you cook lentils and flavor them like refried beans, they serve as refried beans.)
I’ve also made a lot of veggie burgers. Jen’s triple bean chili burgers are ah-mazing btw
Oh oh! And I made more veggie burgers for my little sister’s B-day BBQ – my big sister and her boyfriend are doing the 21-day vegan kickstart so I decided to make sure there was food for us
I can’t believe another year has passed. Just yesterday I was writing this post for her, and now she is 5 years old and starting Kindergarten in a week!!! (she starts kindergarten the same year I start senior year -how cute is that!)
Nothing says Happy Birthday like a decapitated unicorn hanging over a swarm of children fighting over it’s candy insides…Pinatas are violent….hahaha
I also made lemon cupcakes with a raspberry ‘frosting’
Oh yeah….about dessert
Sometimes I eat it in the afternoon -peach soft serve-you know, when I’m not eating a smoothie. Our Vitamix has been feeling the love
or straight out of the freezer – homemade chocolate covered bananas topped with PB2
Sometimes I experiment and prove that you can make chocolate pudding out of just about anything. Like this clean-out-the-fridge version with avocado, leftover squash, leftover black beans, leftover shredded veggies, almond milk, cocoa powder, banana, and something sweet. and you know, vanilla, salt, xanthan gum etc etc. I must be magic or something because this was delicious haha!
Sometimes I get fancy -banana bread baked in a cake pan, topped with a PB2 ‘frosting’ and crushed chocolate chips
We have had a lot of bananas on hand lately, after all….6 lbs, but SHOOT IT WAS 99 CENTS!!! (hahaha….) The rest all got frozen
And sometimes, I’m just thankful that cookies are kind of hard to mess up. Like when you heat the oven almost 100 degrees hotter than the recipe called for. Sweet potatoes may be cooked at 425, but cookies should be at 350…Thank goodness they were fine haha!!
And don’t forget to enter my JOURNEY BAR GIVEAWAY!!!!! I’ll announce a winner next week, so keep those entries coming like, all the time!!!!!!!!
Do you tend to just repeat the same things over and over (and over?)
