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.  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.


Are you wondering who won my giveaway????

Andrew and I put numbers in a hat {his toque actually} and the winner is………

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 😉 ) 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 🙂

✻✻✻

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? 😉

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 🙂

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!!! ♥
