Recap!

Hello everyone! 🙂 Today’s post should have been Tuesday’s…but I was lazy (errgh) and didn’t update. How did I go from religiously blogging every day to only every so often!? Perhaps I’ll start focusing on just one meal of the day, then I won’t feel as pressured to photograph EVERYTHING.

Anywho, today you’ll see Tuesday’s amazing breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, I was reunited with an old friend…



OATMEAL.

Soooooooooooo good. and with a spoonful of peanut butter, it cannot be beat. Into my pot went;

  • 1/3 c. Quaker old fashioned oats (the kind that cook in like..5-10 mins or something)
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 T chia seeds

Let that cook, “whipping” it so that the banana mixes in with the oats. Once it was done I topped it with cinnamon, a big spoonful of peanut butter and some fresh blueberries.

holy yum.

Lunch was a little recipe I sort of came up with a few months ago. It’s FANTASTIC.

Chickpea Salad

  • 1/2 c. chickpeas
  • tomato, zucchini , cucumber, onion, all finely chopped
  • about 2 t EVOO
  • splash of balsamic vinegar
  • small splash of red wine vinegar
  • sprinkling of crumbled feta cheese

heated up in the microwave for about 40 seconds then served over a bed of greens. 🙂 SO GOOOOD.

Well that’s all food wise. This morning I just had an egg/ezekiel english muffin breakfast sandwich and a kiwi. No photographs..I’m headed out to lunch/some errands with my Mom later. I’ll try and photograph! 🙂 Have a great Thursday everyone!

Hey everyone! Long time no see. I’m soooo sorry I haven’t posted in so long. Really, I can’t say I have much of an excuse. Part busy, part lack of creativity in the blogging department. I swear i’ll make it up to you, though.

With this:


Chocolate Dreams” banana french toast

This is good…. very good. In fact, my Dad dragged himself from his sleep deprived state and came downstairs to see just exactly what in Gods name I was eating that was causing me to make sounds of pure joy. It was this my friends.

  • 2 slices bread (I used whole wheat, you could use whatever)
  • 1/2 – 1 T Peanut Butter & Co’s “Dark Chocolate Dreams” spread
  • 1/2 lrg banana
  • 1 egg (or 2 egg whites/whatever substitute you might want. Personally, I like me some cholesterol. ;))
  • splash of milk
  • approx. 5 drops Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon

Spread the chocolate/peanut-y goodness on one side of each of your pieces of bread. Slice the banana into fairly thin circular pieces and place on one piece of bread. Smoosh these together to make a sandwich.

In a shallow dish using a fork, whisk egg, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together. (I’m not sure how much cinnamon I used. I love cinnamon. I smother things in cinnamon. Use as much as you want.) Place your sandwich in this mixture and coat one side. Flip the sandwich and coat the other side. (Use tongs if you wish, they help.)

Spray a frying pan with nonstick spray (or coat it in butter. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone) and let it heat up on medium high heat. Once you can flick water onto it and see the droplets “dance”, it’s heated enough. Throw your dripping sandwich of excellence on there, wait for one side to brown, then flip. Put on a plate, drizzle with maple syrup if you wish and prepare to experience a food-gasm.

I enjoyed mine with a delicious orange. I feel a cold coming on, so gotta ward that off.

you can never have too much maple syrup. It is physically impossible. No, it really is.

Now i’m off to hunt for a prom dress. 🙂 I’ll most likely blog about that eventually. Happy Sunday!!

yum.

Happy…Tuesday everyone!! (Not much of a reason to be happy, buuut whatever!) WAIT, what am I saying? There’s always a reason to be happy. Remember that.

As mentioned yesterday, today’s breakfast was a yogurt parfait…I actually spent a bit of time last night dreaming this little baby up (am I a complete dork or what? ….don’t comment on that ;)). Post workout I had another enriching blueberry green’s smoothie, but that didn’t hold a candle too…

My parfait!!

is she cute or WHAT? (And may I add, very tasty ;)) the mix was;

  • 1/2 c. + 2 T Liberte non-fat organic strawberry yogurt
  • 1/2 c. Kashi GOLEAN crunch cereal (Almost exactly like granola IMO)
  • Cantaloupe

My morning went pretty well. At the beginning of 3rd period I snacked on a Kashi TLC bar in the “dark chocolate cherry” flavour. (Had to have this flavour after reading about Starbuck’s latest spring drink…CHOCOLATE CHERRY MOCHA. HOLY YUM.) I love every single Kashi product i’ve tried so far, it’s awesome knowing i’m eating something good for me, too.

I forgot to photograph lunch (hahaha so not used to food blogging yet!) but it was simply leftover Pork and Pepper pasta from last night and a honey crisp apple. Also about 3 tortilla chips from a plate Leah was eating. 😛

After school I had 3 Darvida crackers (YUM!!) with about 2 tsp almond butter. After that Mom and I headed to Walmart since I have to renew my passport & needed a new photo. I’m heading to NEW YORK CITY at the end of April..ohmygosh, I CANNOT WAIT. SDFNDFKNDGGHFG. I’m sorry to say it’s probably the WORST picture of me ever, LOL!! The photographer did warn that passport photos are NEVER flattering. At least it beats my old picture! (12 years old..rocking a turtleneck sweater..oo baby).

Stopped by the grocery store and I picked up some more Ezekiel english muffins, some more Optimum Slim cereal and my very first jar of ALMOND BUTTER! (The stuff I had before was from a sampler from a bucket at the bulk food store…not real almond butter). Going to try it out tomorrow, I’m quite excited 😀 (love me?)

For supper Mom and I made homemade pizzas. (Well, MOSTLY homemade..the crust is a whole wheat thin crust that is store bought..)

On it was:

  • Tomato Sauce
  • Spinach
  • roasted red peppers, onion, mushroom & zucchini
  • low fat mozza cheese
  • crumbled feta cheese

OMMGGG I love homemade pizza. The above picture is from Mom’s pizza but mine looked the same. We each eat 2 pieces (half the pizza…LOL. I don’t care. 🙂 )

Dessert was identical to yesterdays. A huge mug of tea and some fruit w/ chocolate sauce:

Well that’s all ! Night everyone 🙂
