Hello lovelies!! Another beautiful day, yeah? The title of this post may have brought you back a few years to the kissing game 7 minutes in heaven (which I never played btw) buuut I am referring to my 11 minute straight run today!! B-b-b-booyah!! Awesomeness. I did a 5 minute warmup, 11 minutes of JOGGING, and then a 5 minute cool down!!! After my 45 minute walk with Mr. Beasley.

Breakfast this morning was a HIT!! Andrew liked it! And ate it all. YAY!! And he just ate it on the regular. No toppings at all πŸ™‚ Mine was not so lucky lol

hello

haha like the monroe piercing?? I totally added granola and cashew butter after of course πŸ™‚

I had another productive day (weeeoh!) but I stopped to take a break for lunch. It was supposed to be the wrap from yesterday but I put it in the fridge last night -HUGE MISTAKE – and when I went to take it out, it shattered. Lesson learned. My fail turned into a win pretty fast though. I cut up some leftover veggies and an artichoke heart, mashed a handful of chickpeas, added some dill and a laughing cow and BAM! Lonchi. With the last of the pumpkin butternut squash soup.

Yay super YUM. You might not be able to tell by my awful pictures but it was AHMAZING.

Andrew is making supper tonight and stopped so I could take some pics.

Lasagna switched up made with broccoli and ricotta cheese. And carrots, peppers, onions, tomatoes and goat chedda of course πŸ™‚ We are out of bread so Andrew made toasted garlic buns.

I had a salad with mine as well. I looove when my greens get all mixed up with other food. I’m defintely not one of those people who can’t have their food touching πŸ™‚

We had chocolate pie again for dessert! I made a little one for me with a crust of walnuts and dates. I was missing some raspberries so I mushed up a few defrosted ones and poured it on top.

Andrew’s piece obviously looks waaay more appetizing than mine. Nonetheless I murdered my little piece πŸ™‚

Sooo….back to work tomorrow. Yeehaw. We are having an appetizer night on our first night shift (Friday) and I still don’t know what to bring!! Any ideas??? I also still need song ideas too πŸ™‚

Sweet dreams monstas. Until tomorrow!! Hopefully I can get a chance to catch up on reading your blogs!

Sup monsters! Can you believe that it is Sunday already??? The weekend went by so fast! Hope everyone had fun! I still have two more days off though πŸ™‚ Booya.

I totally skipped breakfast this morning. I went to bed pretty late last night so I might have stayed in bed until 11:30 am!! Super sleeeper. It was awesome. I bummed around with Beasley while Andrew went to a movie and after about an hour I made this salad

accompanied with more soup

My brother dropped off some sprouts he sprouted with the soup yesterday. I don’t know how he does it. I FAIL at making sprouts.

Anderr and I made a meal plan and a grocery list and went grocery shopping! My favorite thing to do haha. Our list was looong and when we got home I was starving. We bought some new gluten free brown rice that takes 50 minutes to make so while that was cooking I munched on some black pepper and olive oil Triscuits with goat cheese and mashed blackberries. Try it because you’ll love it πŸ™‚

open up!

The rice turned out soo good! Cooked it a little too long (rice times are always effed up) but it was still really really good. I was lurking a lot of blogs last night and I found myself drooling over stir fried rice dishes. So obvi I had to make some today. I made stir fried rice and veggies with homemade red thai curry paste. AMAZING. I have never cooked with lemongrass before and it was surprisingly easy. Oh and I got to use the chopsticks I got from my friend Kristi for Xmas!

Stir Fried Rice with Red Thai Curry Paste

brown rice
assorted veggies

1/4 red onion
1 stalk of lemongrass, minced (directions found here)
2 red chili peppers
3 cloves of garlic
1 thumb size piece of ginger
2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tbsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
pepper
4 tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce or Tamari)
1 tsp cane sugar
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp lime zest
2 tbsp water

Cook brown rice according to package directions. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend blend blend until smooth ish. Heat a 1 tsp of oil in a pan and add about 1/4 cup of curry paste. Add vegetables and stir fry until tender crisp. Add rice and more curry paste to taste. Mix everything together, top with bean sprouts and serve.

I am craving that coconut icecream like crazy right now so I’m off to snack my face off! Let me now if you try this recipe! Sweet dreams and happy back to work day tomorrow!!

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 πŸ˜‰ ) 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

please don't mind the off center rug

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 πŸ™‚

✻✻✻

Backtracking to yesterday.

B-fast

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? πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

Time for bed! Or time to have another snack?? Hahaha probably a little bit of both. See you guys tomorrow!!! BYYYYYYE!!

Paije xx

PS. The dreamy Michael Buble is on SNL tonight!!! β™₯

Holla! IT’S FRIIIDAY!!! Awesome possum. I am up waaay too early and tonight is gonna be pretty painful! Haha but that’s nothing new. I had LOTS of eats yesterday aaaaaand…..drumroll please…..

I RAN FOR 10 MINUTES STRAIGHT!!!!

One whole mile! No stops! I know that might not be a big deal to most people, but I don’t think I’ve ever ran that long before. So proud πŸ™‚ I felt so great after!! And I’m so looking forward to doing it again!

Now onto the foooods.

B-fast was a smoothie because I had a nail appointment and I had to mooooove.

I was lurking on the Living Harvest website and found this great smoothie recipe. I halved it.

Vanilla Strawberry Banana Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3/4 banana
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp Vanilla Spice protein powder

Blend it and drink it.

When I got home I decided to make some Quinoa Protein Muffins found here. All I did was change the flava of protein. (No idea why I’m so into protein powder right now. Anything to help me stay fuller longer!)

My muffins did not turn out as well as I was hoping. Mine crumbled so I stuck them together with cashew butter to have as a snack at work.

dry ingredients

wet ingredients + bubble

all togetha now

all fini

all the quinoay goodness

While these were cooking I went and did my run πŸ˜‰ Oh and because I had made a tons of quinoa, I made some of Angela’s maple quinoa cereal. Check it out riiiiight here!. I have actually made this three times now and burnt it everytime!! This was my best attempt yet though, ha.

I haven’t actually had any of this yet, but Andrew had it for breakfast (with almond milk I think) and he said it was gooood. Win.

I took Bizzle for a long walk and it went by so quickly now that I have new songs on my ipod. I hadn’t changed the songs in 2 years!! Shameful, absolutely. But I rock out now πŸ™‚

I had eggs for lunch! I am so addicted I have been licking my plate clean for the last three days. I mashed some blackberries instead of using jam this time and IT IS DA BOMB. I also finished up the rest of the stuffed focaccia inards (spinach, red pepper, pine nuts, feta, onion) and a piece of Squirrley bread.

I totally didn’t do Raw Food Long Change. Deferred success. So I made orange and white potato salad. Another win.

all ready to go

Sweet Potato Salad

Dressing:
3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp stoneground mustard

Blue Lagoon smoothie is next. Or purple lagoon. Whateves. Sooo good. Same recipe as before, just subbed in a cup of Saskatoon berries that we picked and froze in the summer. Now, please don’t judge the fact that it’s in a jar. I had no to-go cup. I tried to pretty the pic up πŸ˜‰

Here is my lunchi all ready for my lunch kit

Oranges and the protein muffin with cashew butter make up the excess.

Look at what is in store for tomorrow!!! Caaan’t wait.

I spent the afternoon reading some sweet snags from my brother this weekend

and lurking some pretty awesome blogs πŸ™‚ After all that fun, I made supper! So exciting. Not that I had much to do as I had already made the orzo & chickpea salad last night. All I had to do was steam a few carrots, and broccolini and toast some Squirrley bread. Oooh la la.

Soo good. I love simple dinners like this πŸ™‚
