Hey guys!

Did you have a good weekend?

I did the work thing but now I’m on dayssss off!!!!


So you might be wondering about the title of my post. Well let me explain.

I am such a curious person. I love seeing what’s in people’s fridge’s, cupboards, purses, etc. I always like to know what food people are eating, what products they use/like or what kind of things they carry with them on a daily basis. Anyone else weird like me??

Wanna see what’s in my purse?

It’s made by Matt & Nat, is made out of vegan leather and the lining is made out of 100% recycled bottles. I know I’m a recycle nerd. NBD.

And it’s got magnetic flap and a bunch of zip pockets which I love!

  • Marc Jacobs sunglasses
  • cell
  • Bath & Body Works lip glosses
  • bobby pins
  • Crazy Sexy Diet
  • gift card to Sunsera Salon from Andrew’s brother and sister-in-law
  • car keys
  • nail file
  • tampons
  • work card and token
  • Emergen-C
  • protein bar
  • Excel gum
  • wallet

This stuff {with the exception of the book, gift card and protein bar} is almost guaranteed to be in my purse at all times. I just started getting back into reading so the book is kinda a new thing. Β It is SO INTERESTING so far.

I almost always have some food in my purse. YUMM!!

Onto the food!

I made granola the other day. Yup and it’s already gone. Imaaagine that.

I modified Angela’s Chocolate Dessert Crunch Granola recipe.

  • 2 & 1/4 cup regular oats
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (or whatever nuts you prefer) 1/2 cup hazelnuts, 1/4 cup chopped
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp kosher salt, to taste (I used 3/4 tsp)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp brown rice syrup (this gives the clumpy factor) 1 tbsp brown rice syrup + 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 & 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips 2 tbsp cocoa powder + 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a non-stick mat.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (oats, cocoa powder, salt, hazelnuts). In another smaller bowl, stir together the oil, brown rice syrup, applesauce and peanut butter. Heat in microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir well and stir in vanilla.

3. Add wet to dry and stir very well until oats are coated. Spread on baking sheet and bake at 325F for 20-25 minutes, flipping once half way through (it will be very sticky, not to worry!). Allow to cool on baking sheet for about 30 minutes before transferring into a container. I store mine in the fridge to keep the chocolate firm. Makes 6 cups.

Make sure to check out Angela’s post because she has the most amazing step-by-step instructions!!

I have been enjoying the granola by itself {it is sooo crazy addicting}, on top of yogurt

and mixed in with some peanut butter puffins, blueberries, hemp hearts and a big spoonful of pb.

Mixed kale, grapes and a sweet potato. Siiimpleton.

Veggie burger with grainy mustard and avocados, mixed kale and grapefruit.

Big chunk of pumpernickel bread, fried cabbage, quinoa salad and roasted asparagus.
