How was your Sunday??
Mine was quite productive. Got a lot of things crossed off the to-do list
I started off this morning with scottish oats! Shocker.
The real shocker was that Andrew had oats too! He never eats the same breakfast as me.
He made his plain and topped it with organic maple syrup (another first for him) while mine had the usual suspects of
1/4 cup scottish oats
1 1/4 cup water
1/3 cup almond milk
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 smushed up banana
dash of cinnamon
I did mix in an egg white at the end though and WOW, talk about F-I-L-L-I-N-G.
Topped with organic raspberry jam, cashew almond butter, granola and more almond milk.
After breakfast Andrew and I split the to-do list in half and got to work.
Together we cut the lawn, did ALL the laundry, organized our recyclables (which we have missed for the past month and = a huge mess), cleaned the house, and made a meal plan + grocery list.
Then it was time for lunch!
I was still full from breakfast so I decided to make a smoooothie.
Well, I tried to make a strawberry version of the faux frosty but it didn’t quite make it to that level of greatness.
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup of water, optional (I needed it to get everything movin’)
1/4 tsp guar gum
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tray of ice
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
I ate this bar on the way to the grocery store
I love these bars! It has just the right amount of nuts and seeds and gooeyness.
Tonight’s supper was really really good!
I used 2 recipes out of the Clean Food cookbook and they turned out delicious. GO BUY THIS COOKBOOK!
I made the black bean patties and pineapple guacamole.
grilled corn on the cob with chili powder and baby potatoes with Earth Balance and fresh dill on the side.
I have left over burgers and salsa so you’ll prob be seeing them again
After supper we took Beasley outside to play and then I did the 30 day shred level 2. I was a sweatmess and it was great.
I snacked on a yog mess with a mexican mango, millet puffs and a couple of non-dairy chocolate chips.
Bowl licked clean while I got some blog lurking done.
Andrew and I almost planned our entire trip tonight and I couldn’t be happier! LOTS of fun things planned!
Hope you guys had a great weekend and are getting lots of zzzzzzzzzs for the new week!
I just love this quote. Totally makes me smile
Today you are you, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is youer than you.
Mix that is! Muahahaha more on that in a sweet little minute.
Sooo…about Starbucks Awake tea latte. Shiz kept me up until 5 in the morning!!! I know I slept in late because I had just gotten off night shifts, and then went in and worked some overtime but REALLY?! 5:00 am??? SO LAME BALLS. Caffeine effects me like crazy. Rrrrr. Anyone else in the same boat? I opted to cancel overtime today. It was a pretty good decision because I cooked instead! Which means lots of pics for all of yous. Starting with brunch! I brought back the poached eggie and hollandaise sauce. ABSOLUTELY started my day off right.
Silverhills Mack’s Flax bread (if you can find this, buy it. I am so obsessed) with a poached egg and steamed spinach. Looks a little dry though, yeah?
BAM! The tomato hollandaise sauce was extremely easy and extremely delushious. It was one laughing cow wedge (what else), a little bit of almond milk (the unsweetened regular if I haven’t mentioned that before), lots of pepper and about 4 chopped up cherry tomatoes. So simple yet sooo good. I used my finger to wipe up the excess. And then licked my finger clean
Andrew and I hit up the grocery store to grab a few things. As per usual we should of grabbed a cart. I could literally spend hours in the grocery store. Especially ones that have just had a makeover. I never just shop at one – I always switch it up. We are going to both Trader Joes and Whole Foods while we are on vacation this year and I AM FRICKIN OUT OF MY MIND ECSTATIC. That is my vacation haha.
Here is da loot:
This little guy was hiding in the back
Gobble gobble gobble.
I was starving after shopping I just haaad to
sample eat some honey mustard pretzels. I. need. to. get. more. NOW.
Ah supper. I had been creeping Janetha’s wonderful blog this morning and could not get over the yummy yummy carrots that her and her future hubby made. I LOVE cooked carrots. The recipe is here and it really is a five star recipe. ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ It’s supposed to serve 4 but uh Andrew and I demolished them. So I say it serves 4 regular people or 2 hungry monsters.
We had 2 portobello mushrooms in the fridge that needed to be used so Andy decided to stuff them and bbq them. YUM. We mashed two laughing cow wedges (of course haha), chives, red and green peppers, dill and cayenne pepper together and stuffed the cleaned out mushrooms. Topped with sharp old goat chedda and tada! Lush.
While Andrew was making the rest of his supper, I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot with Beasley. FAIL. Every time I went to take a picture he looked away!
He finally looked at me but only to give a diva no-more-pictures look.
Bean salad was also had. I blanched the beans in boiling water for about 5 minutes and then transferred them over to an ice bath.
I used this recipe for the salad.
Lean Mean Bean Salad
1 bunch of green beans
1 cup of chickpeas
3/4 cup kidney beans
2 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar (Or regular white)
2 tsp stoneground mustard (I’m sure any kid would work)
salt and pepper
half a red onion thinly sliced
1 clove of garlic, minced
Blanch the beans for about 5 minutes and then toss into a bowl with ice water. Dry completely and then mix with the other beans and onion. Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over beans. Toss well to combine.
Because I didn’t feel like this was enough food yet (GAH, my eyes are always waaay bigger than my belly) I sliced a few strips of zucchini, brushed them with olive oil, salt and pepper and the boyf threw them on the bbq.
Only 2 turned out (too thin, lesson learned) but they were so so good! I mixed some goat cheese and dill together, spread it on and rolled them up.
Here is my plate:
Even though Andrew doesn’t want his picture on the blog yet, he was totally okay with me putting pictures of his food on here So for all you meat eaters, here ya go. I have no idea what this is called though haha. He used my little wonton cups as a base and filled them with bbq chicken, veggies and goat chedda.
After supper was finished, Andrew and I took Beasley for a late night walk. So glad we did because there were the C-R-A-Z-I-E-S-T northern lights out! You don’t usually get to see them in the city so it was a sweet treat.
When we got back we both had bowls of icecream before Andrew went to bed.
FINALLY. The reason for the name of my post. I made Asian Party Mix! Booyah! And it is taasteh! Check it out:
I found the recipe here.
Made some his and hers overnight oats for the am:
Okay. I might have left out a teeny tiny tidbit about today. Even though the Alive latte KILLED me last night, I still went and got another one today! They are that good! And now it’s 3:00 am. My bad. I’m hittin the hay right meow.
Hope everyone had a great day and your tomorrow is even better I have a lunch date and cleaning planned. SHWEEEET!
Hi! How is everyone?? Hopefully you’re having a really good weekend. Mine has been going just fine. Did you celebrate Earth Hour tonight?? We sure did! We shut all of our lights off, took Beasley for a walk (his 2nd one today ) and then came home, lit some candles and shared the So Delicious coconut milk vanilla bean icecream I bought the other day.
This is my third year participating and it just warms my lame little heart how many people do this. The Sydney Opera House and the Great Pyramids of Giza even shut off their lights!
Our living room all lit up, missing the two boys
What kind of things do you do to help the earth? We do small things everyday like use cold water to wash our clothes, use reusable grocery bags and sandwich bags, unplugging appliances when we aren’t using them, and recycling as much as possible! And in the summer we compost
Backtracking to yesterday.
Three egg whites, goat cheese, 1/4 of an avocado, chopped tomato, dill and an apple.
We had a popcorn night at work (cuz my new supervisor is so cool) and she brought her air popper, I brought some popcorn and another girl brought a bunch of popcorn seasonings. I OVERLOADED myself with delicious popcorn. It was crazy.
I only took one picture of what I took for lunch last night. I didn’t think you needed to see another bowl of potato salad or another wrap so I left them out. Andrew made a quesadilla and left me half to take to work. It was curry ish and awesome.
Work was busy busy busy last night!! Ugh. Sometimes I wish crime would take a vacay LOL. But then I guess I wouldn’t have a job, right?
B-fast today was oatmeal with chia, raisons, blackberries, honey, quinoa maple cereal and almond milk. Weird, I know. I had a craving for all of those things and they tasted decee together.
and a smoothie
made with this
I knew we were having pizza at Andrew’s brother’s house tonight so I had a small meal so I wouldn’t go overboard once I got there. My brother dropped off some soup he made – butternut squash, pumpkin, carrots, cloves and curry – and DAMN! Sooo yummy!! I had it with a smear of goat cheese and whole wheat wrap.
I still managed to have 2 1/2 pieces of veggie pizza
Time for bed! Or time to have another snack?? Hahaha probably a little bit of both. See you guys tomorrow!!! BYYYYYYE!!
PS. The dreamy Michael Buble is on SNL tonight!!! ♥
Goooood morning monstas!! Hope you all had a wonderful sleep. I sure did! Sorry for no post last night. You can blame this:
I lasted about 5 minutes after I finished my cup. I almost ALWAYS catch up on sleep on long change.
SoOoOoo some eats from yesterday. That’s what you are here for right?? Okay breakski was an egg white omlette made with 2 organic free run eggie whites, cherry tomatoes, fresh dill, orange pepper, mushrooms and spinach. When it was almost done I threw in a Laughing Cow wedge and a ton of pepper.
Yum yum yum. Lots of organic ketchup on top. I probably licked the bowl. And hehe look who woke up and wandered into my room while I was getting ready
Ahh this picture makes me laugh. A minute later he was digging a hole under my yoga mat. He’s so crazy.
I didn’t take any pictures of my lunch (SHOCK!!) because it was pretty much the same as the day before. Some salad, some sushi and some oranges. And another granola bar. There are none left! Guess I need to make some more
Andrew’s night to cook again and this is what he made:
He is such a good cook. Bow tie pasta curry with carrots and broccoli.Obvi I had a salad on the side. And I topped it with goat chedda after I snapped this pic. I’m probably going to take leftovers to work tonight!
This morning I had some cereal. Not just any cereal though. The BEST cereal I’ve ever had. It started with Jordan’s Organic Morning Crisp, some chia seeds millet puffs, almond milk, Almond Butter Extreme (with honey and flax), LOTS of maple flakes on top and some goji berries.
My belly is happy happy. I also had a shot of this:
Now I’m going to take Dizzle for a walk, hopefully get to Dad’s for some groceries, make some food and have a nap before my night shift! I see around the blog world that people are doing meatless monday or taco wednesday, etc. but because my schedule is always so different, I am going to do raw food long change! It doesn’t rhyme and it doesn’t sound exciting but I PROMISE it will be! Long change is what we call the 24 hrs we don’t work between our day and night shifts. Its pretty sweet. Almost feels like a day off!
I will be back with some sort raw dish for tonight. Oh, and the name of my post?? Hhahaha watch this video and you will understand Try not to piss yourself laughing. Vagazzle is my new favorite word. Have an awesome day!!
