So I know I told you guys that I would be making a Baby Page so as not to overload you with all my crazy ramblings/thoughts/baby shiz but I couldn’t figure it out. Technically NOT technical at all so from now on baby posts will be mixed with food posts. Hope that’s okay
I don’t want to talk about babies at all though today! I want to talk about breakfast. Yummy yummy breakfast. If haven’t noticed on the blog before (I know it’s kind of hard with the lack of posts…) but I get into suuuuper food routines. I have no problem eating the same meal a couple times a week or month. Example: Peas and Thank You Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna. HOOKED. But I couldn’t imagine eating the same thing everyday for lunch or dinner. Boring much? But breakfast on the other hand is a completely different story.
A few years ago I never used to eat breakfast at all. I used to sleep until noon (or 2 or 3), wake up and have lunch. Or if I did wake up before lunch time I would eat leftovers for breakfast. Spaghetti at 8am? Yes please. I’m not sure when I came to the realization how important that first meal of the day is, but now I can’t imagine not eating as soon as I get up. And not leftover rice with mushroom gravy either
Breakfast is the one meal where I can eat the same thing every single day and not be bored. But it changes weekly.
Of course it started with oatmeal. SO many different variations.
Ashley’s scottish oats with granola and pomegranate seeds
same oats as above but with peanut butter cups (chocolate + oats = amazing)
buckwheat groat oatmeal with granola, raspberry jam, maple peanut butter and almond milk
quinoa flake oatmeal with goji berries, frozen raspberries and blueberries and almond butter
overnight oats – 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup yogurt, 1 tbsp chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla left to soak in the fridge overnight…..
topped with a pear, raspberry jam and granola in the morning
After my small oatmeal obsession, I moved on to french toast…
Ezekiel french toast with almond butter + almond milk mixture and frozen raspberries
topped with strawberries, greek yogurt and maple syrup
cinnamon spelt waffles with pomegranates and almond butter + almond milk
with greek yogurt and strawberries
waffle sandwich with 2 egg whites, raspberry jam, laughing cow and maple syrup
and pizzert babies (which totally double as an awesome afternoon snack ;))
Kat’s pizzert babies with almond butter, granola and coconut
Ashley’s banana cornmeal cakes became a staple for many weeks. Total no brainer. They are so filling and so delicious. I think I only stopped eating them because I couldn’t find buckwheat anywhere!
Ashley’s banana cornmeal bake with almond butter
Just as obsessed I was with those bakes, I looove love Deb’s protein muffin. I’ve probably made it uhhhhhh…a couple 100 times? I make mine with brown rice flour, applesauce, egg whites, blueberries and vanilla bean powder. Deeelicious!
Muff topped with lots of almond butter, 1/2 english muffin with butter + jam and an orange
Topped with LOTS of peanut butter, maple syrup and hemp hearts
Same as above but with lots of blueberries cooked in.
Aaand of course I could not forget eggs. I could eat eggs every single day and probably be a very very happy lady. There are soo many different kinds of ways to eat them! Over easy are my favourite though
Egg rollup with pineapple, cherries, toast with cinnamon + laughing cow
Big omelette fail with broccoli, peppers and spinach, oranges and strawberries.
2 egg scramble with tons of ketchup, quinoa cakes with avocado, hemp hearts + goji berries and raspberries
Runny egg on two pieces of toast, avocado + veggie sausages
More runny eggs on a socca pancake (1/4 cup chickpea flour, 1/4 cup water, salt + pepper +italian seasoning) with avocado, cheese and salsa
I have totally saved the best for last. PANCAKES!! I am so so obsessed with this recipe right now. I add in 2 tsp of bee pollen, use Sun Warrior protein powder and have tried almost every fruit in them
with strawberries, maple syrup and hemp hearts
with blueberries, lots of butter, maple syrup and hemp hearts
with raspberries, butter and maple syrup
So tell me….
What is your favourite breakfast food?
Do you get into major food routines?
Notice how muffins and cereal did not make my list? I love them both but only for snacks, not for breakfast.
Miss you guys tons and tons,
PS. Has anyone seen my ankles?? Yeah….me neither. They’ve been missing for awhile now haha
Wow. Four whole days without posting felt like FOREVER!!

There has been lots of repeat eats in the last four days.
Lookie lookie lookie.

massaged kale and romaine caesar salad with nutritional yeast, red peppers, sprouts and caesar dressing x2
another salad with spinach, grilled veggies, baked cod with chili powder, paprika and lime juice, topped with Hummy Mustard Dressing . x2
I am so obsessed with this dressing. I want to put it on everything. Oh wait, I do
I modify it a bit and put in a squirt of stoneground mustard, tiny squirt of jalapeno mustard, spoonful of hummus and water to thin.
baked fish, steamed swiss chard, steamed carrots and brussel sprouts, brown rice with Braggs, goat chedda and two spinach and artichoke dip cups
another repeat salad with grilled veggies, fish, mustard dressing and a piece of Mack’s Flax with Earth Balance
tonight’s dinner was the best ever. As of late anyways.
GIGANTIC salad from Co-op salad bar.
Spinach, romaine, coleslaw, spoonful of greek salad, shredded carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, black olives, nuts, feta, chives, edamame bean salad, chickpeas, and probably a million other things.
MEOW. This socks my rocks off.
I left it dressingless so I could add more of the mustard/hummus when we got home.
And had a 1/2 a baked yam with baked beans with lots of hot sauce and pepper.
There are also some missing pasta dishes in there too. Not sure where those pictures went haha.
spinach and artichoke dip cup for the work peeps
homemade trail mix of walnuts, almonds, cashews, dairy free chocolate chips, macadamia nuts
I also had soy nuts (which are so so good), sliced peppers and celery, cottage cheese, mini smoothie and a piece of angel food cake made by Julie (monster mite) for our coworkers last night
We ate appies and cake and played spoons! VICIOUS game. Totally fun though
So yesterday would have been my grandpa’s 87th birthday.
This is the first birthday since he’s passed away and I thought about him all day.
It was soo beautiful outside yesterday and I just know he would have had a great day
and here we are out at his farm around the same time
Ah I miss him so much. SO MUCH. He was the youngest 86 year old! He still flew his plane and climbed trees right up until he got sick. He loved showing us everything on his farm and taking us for walks through the trails. We were so lucky
So happy that I’m back!
I will be posting everyday again and I can’t wait to READ YOUR BLOGS AGAIN!!
I have been missing them all so much!!
Comment comment comment!!
Hope you guys had great a weekend and this week is SUPERB!
See ya’ll tomorrow!
PS. I am still working on my recipe tab. What a pain though! If anyone has any suggestions on how to make the process a little less painful, please let me know! K thanks!
Wednesday Hump Day!!
Did u have an interesting day today??
I sure DID NOT.
I got some new kitchen stuff (ramekins, napkins, mini spring form pan).
Took Bizzle for a walk.
Hung out with Andrew.
THAT IS ALL.
Hopefully things will be different tomorrow. It’s my last day off!!
I was late night snacking last night and this this combo
cottage cheese, almond butter, carroat cake bars
Eaten in my lap, where all snacks should be eaten.
The white bag with the hearts is my heat bag from my mom.
I cuddle up with it every night ♥
Breakfast. I was going to have waffles to take part in waffle wednesday but I am out of waffles.
And because I do not own a waffle iron, I decided to have pancakes again.
I wasn’t too upset
Same as yesterday except I actually followed the recipe correctly this time.
Apparently yesterday I mixed up the almond milk measurement.
It was all done correctly though today.
And they were amazing.
I added strawberries to the mixture and topped them with more strawberries and pineapple.
And dusted it with some coconut flour.
Lunch. Was a little bit later than normal but those pancakes are little protein monsters so I didn’t mind.
wrap with 2 hardboiled egg whites, jalapeno mustard, stoneground mustard, hummus, pickles, pepperoncino peppers, spinach, sprouts and avocado.
Supper was undecided until the last minute.
But I decided on pizza!
Crust was the same wrap from lunch.
76 calories and organic?? You can’t go wrong.
Toppings were organic pizza sauce, pineapple, broccoli, red onion, mushrooms and more pepperoncino. Goat chedda on top.
I rolled it up and ate it with some baked beans and a small salad.
I had only one snack today. Weird.
Orange and carroat cake bar.
Another lap snacky.
Anywoo I’m off to bed!
Gonna check to see if I won some Kombucha!! (fingers crossed!!)
I promise there will be a WAY more interesting post tomorrow.
I have lots of ideas in my head it’s just hard to get them all down on
paper on the blog.
Hopefully it will all come together soon
Hope everyone had a good day today!
It was pouring rain here all day so there was no walk for Beasley. Just lots of indoor playing
I ended up having a wonderful snack last night.
I rolled it up and baked it in the oven at 400F for 15 minutes.
And topped it with the last of the coconut icecream that would not stay on the nanner.
The wrap flaked up like pasty and the banana was all smushy with the chocolate and almond butter.
It was GREAT.
Breakfast this morning was so so so phenomenal. x 10.
I followed her recipe exactly except I added about 1/2 tbsp more of almond milk and I defrosted some strawberries to put on top.
They are actually really mini but they kept me full for 5 hours!!
And because I like to copy everything Janetha does a day later lol, we celebrated national grilled cheese day today! We named them because we are geeks. We also had a side tomato/red pepper soup.
The Husky Kiwi
2 slices Squirrley bread
1 tsp hummus
2 fresh pineapple slices, thinly sliced
1/4 smashed avocado
lots of goat chedda
two sliced pepperoncinis
It got its name because when I lived in New Zealand I ate TONS of pineapple grilled cheese sandwiches. And I also gained about 25 lbs living there haha.
2 slices Squirrely bread
Earth Balance butter
thinly sliced red onion
Andrew set the sandwiches up. Cutieee.
Because it was a stay inside rain day, I decided to try out a new recipe.
I got it from the Whole Foods site but changed a few things. Including the name
CarrOAT Cake Bars
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water to make a binder
Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a cake pan with olive oil.
Combine oats, whole wheat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, coconut and salt in a bowl and combine. In another bowl mix together carrots, maple syrup, applesauce, vanilla, walnuts and chia seeds. Put dry ingredients in the kitchenaid and combine and add wet ingredients while its mixing. Pour into pan and bake for about 1 hour.
I got to use my new Kitchenaid mixer! (Technically I used it the other day, but it was a complete cookie fail)
I forgot to take a picture after but don’t worry, there is about 15 bars so I’m sure they will make an appearance a lot around here. I’ll prob have one after this post
★EPIC SUSHI MOMENT★
Big day in my books.
Check these beeeauties out.
Colored soy sushi wraps!!!!
GAH! I have literally wanted these for about 4 ish years.
The day has finally come.
Look at all the pretty colors!
And they are all colored naturally with either spinach, tumeric, sesame, or paprika.
Of course I haaaad to make sushi for supper tonight.
I used the yellow, pink and green ones tonight.
I can’t wait to try them all.
They were A LOT different than nori though.
They were so much harder to roll!
And so delicate when cutting.
Luckily Andrew came to my rescue and salvaged the pink roll.
I mutilated the green and yellow ones. Oops!
Well that’s all folks!
See you tomorrow!!
