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.

PS. Has anyone seen my ankles?? Yeah….me neither. They’ve been missing for awhile now haha
Happy long weekend!!

Spinach with leftover pasta, avocado, cucumbers, red peppers and mushrooms.
The hummy mustard dressing with relish.

The platoon I worked with last night is the best!! If I had get transferred to a different shift, I would definitely want to go there

There is a few things that I want to talk about tomorrow so PLEASE COME BACK!!
I am trying to channel SUMMER over here even though it has been raining for the past couple days!
I hope your weekend has been filled with sunshine!
See you tomorrow!
I sure am!! Most of you, probably not. I am on days off so Monday is the sweetest day this week Sorry I haven’t been here for the last couple of days, I just feel like I have too much going on between night shifts. You understand. I have lots of pics of the last two days but I’ll just spotlight a few of the food ones so I’m not here ALL NIGHT LONG (all niiiight).
I don’t know which day I got these, but they were the highlight of my last couple days so they are going to go first.
Orchids are my faaavorite! Orchids and tulips. Andrew is a good boyfriend. Haha.
Some breakfasts included homemade hashbrowns, peppers, mushrooms and a poached egg
waffle sandwich with two egg whites, lc and jam. Topped with a tbsp of maple syrup and smushed.
spinach smoothie with 1 cup original unsweetened almond milk, 3/4 banana, a handful of blueberries, two big handfuls of spinach and 3 strawberries.
Lunches are sort of mixed with dinners because I just eat all night long on night shifts. Really. I should probably get help.
new wrap with mustard, hummus, spinach, peppers, veggie burger, and pickles with steamed edamame.
These wraps are the shiiiiit. Go get yourself some.
Wok Box Jungle Curry with all vegetables and an Awake tea latte from buckys.
whole wheat macaroni and broccoli with mushroom gravy and goat chedda.
There are many many many unpictured snacks and little bites here and there. There is one snack though that could not go unpictured. Ranch nuts and bolts. With fishies. From Julie. Oh jeez.
This is literally like crack to me. I am soo addicted. Love love love love ♥
Speaking of Julie, she wanted to do a little guest post. I shared my orange with her last night and she took a pic with her Blackberry and sent this quote with it:
Well colour me HAPPY!! Paije shared her o-r-a-n-g-e with me! Start a revolution “Up with Paije”
She is so cute. And totally my favorite.
I had a super shweet supper date with my dad and brother tonight. Fish taco. The first bite was kind of raunchy but it got better. Then I put too much habanero sauce on and burnt my mouth. FIRE MOUTH.
So now I’m hungry again. Hmmmm….I have a super craving for theeese pancakes that I saw yesterday, but I will wait for breakfast
And now, last but not least….MY PACKAGE FINALLY CAME!!! I have been wanting these for the longest time and my mom finally ordered them for me 3 weeks ago. I can’t tell you what they are just yet because that would be no fun, but trust me, it’s going to be awweeesosoososme!!
I am very sad that I didn’t get to participate in National Grilled Cheese Day but I’m going to try to make up for it tomorrow. Do-overs are allowed here right???
I’ll be back tomorrow with lots of eats and treats and shenanigans. Can’t wait!! Sleep tight monsters!
Ahh go and enter this giveaway by Janetha!! I’ve never had Kombucha before but I would looove to try it!!
Hiya monsters! Today has been a really great day! I am supa supa tired though now! So if you don’t mind, I’m just gonna fill your faces with pictures Keep in mind everyone in my life is camera shy (or maybe embarrassed to know me haha) so there are no happy family shots! Just foooood and puppy
Waffle Wednesday was a success! I had one toasted hemp waffle, smothered it with a laughing cow wedge, an egg and a teeny bit of goat chedda and 1 tbsp of organic maple syrup. Nommity nom nom.
This definitely wasn’t enough so I had half of a dragon fruit. FYI – try this if you haven’t.
I didn’t eat lunch today! Too busy hanging out with my mom! I snacked on many things when I got home though. Many UNpictured things. Oops! My mom brought supper with her for tonight. It is one of my favorite meals from when I was a kid and my mom vegetarianized it for moi. Hamburger pizza for everyone, broccoli and pineapple pizza for me Observe the yumminess:
The empty table (fourth spot on the table is for my younger brother )
