Everyone have a good day?
Getting excited for the weekend?
I go back to work tomorrow so this post will be short and sweet so I can get to bed eeeearly 🙂
Breakfast was 1/3 oats, 1/3 almond milk, 1/3 water, chia seeds, raisons, almond butter and a chopped up granny smith apple.
The apple was crunchy and yummy.
I took Beasley for another loong walk today and I think this was the first day all week the sun came out.
When I got back I had to rush to my nail appointment so I didn’t get to have lunch! Oops.
Oh well. I now have highlighter yellow nails 🙂
I didn’t get home until almost 5 and I was staaarving!!
Super late lunch of half an apple and cashew butter and
I made the same egg salad from yesterday but put it on top of spinach instead of a wrap.
This is obvi a new fave.
Supper supper supper was a mish mash of everything I wanted.
Grilled cod with lime juice, paprika and chili powder.
Grilled caesar salad with fat free caesar, rice parmesan cheese, goat chedda and breadcrumbs.
And baked spinach and artichoke dip cups.
This was our first time ever grilled romaine hearts and WOW. Delicious. And so easy. (Says Andrew, he did the bbqing 😉 )
And the spinach and artichoke cups are uber low fat. Probably 60 cals ish per piece. I could probably eat a thousand of them.
They are tasteh!
I’m working on my recipe page so it will be in there soon!!
I just finished eating my snack with a little piggy on my shoulder.
In my fish bowl went 1 1/2 pieces of carroat cake bar, strawberries and yogurt mixed with vanilla spice protein powder.
Don’t judge the color.
Now, time for bed!
But first check out the pretty tulips I got today.
Sweet dreams monsters!!
See you tomorrow 🙂
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

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup coconut flour

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!!
