Gooood evening!

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.

Finally!!

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.

Broccolini.

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 🙂

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 🙂 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 😉 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 🙂

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

3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo

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 😉

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

Hi guys!! Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone had a shweeet day! I left early from work to hang out with Andy and have literally effed the dog all day. And now I am too tired to post the recipes that I promised I would yesterday 😦 So sorry monsters!

Brrrreakfast this morning was…..SURPRISE!! oatmeal oatmeal oatmeal. boooring paije! But today I added Stoneyfield apple loves blackberry yogurt and blackberries.

I packed a pretty simple lunch today of leftovers, oranges, homemade trail mix, salad and a granola bar. See below:

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

and lurking some pretty awesome blogs 🙂 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 🙂

Oh! I almost forgot. I got new protein powder today…and had a protein muffin for my snackie with cashew butter and raspberry jammers.

Okay lovelies, I gotsta go. It’s sleepy time tea and off to bed!! Another work day tomorrow and tomorrow I WILL NOT BE EATING OATS for breakfast. I creeped a few delicious recipes today and I can’t wait until tomorrow! I will also be posting the recipes that I was supposed to post today 🙂 Night all!

Hi guys! Sorry no post yesterday but after I got home I just wanted to hang out with my boyss and relaaax!! I had such a good weekend at home, though! Just wish it wouldn’t have been so short!

Just some of the many reasons I love being at home

awesome oats with raisons, cashew butter, honey and chia seeds

fresh pineapple

homemade veggie lasagna

My mom totally spoiled Beasley while we were there. She took him for walk/runs in the a.m. while I was zzzzzing and even picked up his poop! (She’s NEVER been a dog person). I loved it. She took him out in the afternoon if she was going outside and we took him for a really long walk one afternoon. My kitties were even getting used to him. One of them anyway 😉

When I got home I realized I was waaay to tired to cook anything so Andrew and I decided to order out. Shocking, I know. We hardly ever eat out! Maybe if we lived in a city where there were a lot more vegetarian/vegan options we would but for now cooking home is totally fine with me 🙂 We ordered from Las Palapas and my meal was suuper duuper.

I had the black bean and roast vegetable burrito with bean salad. GAH soo great. It had a kind of creme fraiche sauce on top of the burrito and it was deelicious!

I miiight have overloaded on popcorn after this. POPCORN MONSTER.

Today started off with an 8am orthodontist appointment. Not sure why I do that to myself. My last day off and I have to be up early! I decided that since I was up so early, I would get a lot done today. Ha ha ha. Not the case at all. I did eat breakfast when I got home

chia oatmeal with cinnamon and molasses. and a frozen raspberry or two. obvi the only thing I eat for breakfast is oats. maybe I could switch it up once in awhile yeah? haha.

I promptly fell asleep as soon as I put my spoon down. And woke up at nooon! Ahhhh, nothing better than a good sleep but JEEZ! Noon?! Whateves. I got up and took Bizzle for a walk and then came home and did some laundry, had a salad (with the leftover yam falafels)

and started making focaccia for tonight’s supper of stuffed focaccia with spinach and feta. I used this focaccia mix

I have never made focaccia bread before and this was really easy. After mixing it all up, I put it in a greased bowl for 45 minutes to rise. I cut it in two pieces – one for the stuffed bread and just a regular one. Spread it out into a rectangle ish shape, spread my innerds on, folded it up and baked it!

le stuffed beauty

le regular focaccia

Here are the finished products:

YUM YUM YUM!! Andrew roasted some veggies for supper, too. Mushrooms, peppers, onions, asparagus, zucchini.

My plate before:

aaaaand after:

Oooh my belly is so sassified. No dessert tonight, just supper prep for tomorrow!! Little preview….

A recipe for both the stuffed focaccia and the orzo salad will be kickin around here tomorrow if you’re interested. Hope everyone had a great Monday!! Niiight!
