Hey guys!

Happy Monday!

Did u have a good day?

It was hhhhhooootttt here today! Like 28C/82F.

Beasley and I spent the whole day outside being bums.

We had breakfast outside, too.

Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Smoothie

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 cup frozen rhubarb

1/2 scraped out vanilla bean

1 cup of almond milk

1 juiced orange

xanthan gum (optional)

Mix everything together in the blender. Drrrrink up!

Beasley had to examine the empty glass 😉

I read a bunch of cookbooks and the new Loulou magazine.

They did a piece on my little city! I was so excited to see this. Because Loulou is a Canadian magazine they are always doing feature pieces for shopping in a different city. I have looonged to see little old Saskatoon in the mag and I finally got to! YAY!

Please ignore my creepy shadow.

Lunch was eaten outside as well – I don’t usually like eating outside because of all the bugs but I just couldn’t bring myself to sit inside today.

Goat chedda slices, half a red pepper, red pepper hummus and about 1/3 cup leftover baked beans.

We had almost no food in our fridge (obvious by my leftovers lunch) so we made a big grocery shopping trip.

I was sooo hungry when we got home so supper was kind of made on the fly.

Homemade Annie’s macaroni made with Happy Herbivore’s low fat vegan nacho sauce and broccoli. A HUUUGE salad with roasted onions, asparagus, mushrooms, baked goat cheese discs and a tiny piece of cranberry walnut purple wheat bread.

That sauce is sooo goood! I’m planning on eating it tomorrow it for lunch too 🙂

The cheese was sliced into thin discs, dipped in an egg and then some panko bread crumbs with italian seasoning. They are baked in the oven on parchment paper for 15 minutes at 400F, flipped half way through.


We took Beasley for a walk after supper and then came home and had dessert.

I bought cherries today at the grocery store and I couldn’t be more excited!! I look every time we go to the store and have been going through a super withdrawal all winter! Soooo I had some on top of my carrot cake ice cream and the last of the millet puff bars.

Okay it’s back to work tomorrow so I should get to bed. It’s a sweatmess in here so hopefully I’ll be able to get some sleep! 😉

See you tomorrow!!

PS. Thanks for all your sweet comments! They totally make my day ♥



Happy Wednesday!!

Hope everyone had a great day!

I sure did 🙂

Beasley and I went for a walk this morning with my friend Kristi and her parent’s puppy Heidi. So cute.

Beasley wouldn’t leave her bunny Jersey alone though!

Pretty cute but I felt bad for the little thumper being tormented by the little monster!

Before I left this morning I made some homemade Roasted Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter

You heard me right.

The bomb diggity recipe is riiiiiight here.

Store bought nut butters are dead to me.

This is aaamaaaazing.

maple roasted frickin awesomeness

I snuck a few of these yummers before they went in the processor 😉

It took about 30 minutes with my food processor and with all the stopping to scrape down the sides and taste test.

The finished product pics are actually from batch x2 (I gave the whole first batch to Kristi!) and next time I will be quadrupling the recipe 😉

I had to try out a teeny bit before we went for our walk.

With half a mango and a piece of The Big 16.

Breakfast looks quite similar to last nights snack…

half a mango, piece of Mack’s Flax, a laughing cow and Crofter’s Superfruit Spread. North America style.

After our walk I came home for some lunch.

Nothing interesting.

Leftover salad from last night with 1/4 avocado and more of Heather’s Hummy Mustard Dressing

Does anyone else eat the skin of mangos??

I make sure to wash them really well and then chow down!!

Love them.

After lunch I had plans to start making a baby gift from my friend Sheena (baby Tensley) but I fell asleep!

Loved nap time.

I only had about a 40 minute nap but felt way better after.

Time for more almond butter!!

Half of a granny smith apple with LOTS of butta.

When Andrew got home from work we piddled around the house and played with Biz outside.

COULD NOT decide on what to have for supper.

I had too many cravings like usual so decided to have them all!

BBQed mushrooms, asparagus and green peppers with cuban seasoning.

Steamed artichoke with lemons. Dipped in the hummy dressing.

I baked up some goat cheddar covered in italian breadcrumbs.


I sliced them with dental floss (peppermint by mistake lol) just like my mom does with her cinnamon buns 🙂

Final projecto

romaine lettuce topped with said grilled veggies, baked yam slices, baked goat cheddar and arty the artichoke.

Tomorrow is RECYCLING day!!



All my recycling for 2 weeks.

45 minutes later…

Could you imagine all of this going in the garbage???

I could never go back to a life of not recycling 🙂

Just ooonne more little tid bit of my day.

Macadamia walnut hemp heart milk.


All nuts blended with some water and a pinch of stevia and then strained with a fine mesh strainer.

I mash the nut pulp with a spoon to get all the liquid out and then put it in the fridge to save for later.

And ready for drinkage.

Well not really.

I can’t milk. Even nut milks.

Call me crazy.

I just like to have it in my oatmeal and cereal and such. 🙂

Okie dokie.

That’s it.

I reeeeally need to get to bed finish watching What Happens in Vegas!! Hehe

Night everyone!!

How are you showing the Earth some love tomorrow??

Hey guys! Happy hump day! I was home from work sick today 😦 and am just starting to feel better. I started to feel icky last night after supper and when I got to work this morning it just seemed to be getting worse. I didn’t feel like I had the flu, I just felt off. Not me. So I came home, took some Super Orange Emergen-C and had a loooong sleep. I woke up, had a little bite of lunch and fell back asleep. Obviously my body needed it. I’ve been drinking lots of tea today and Andrew made supper with lots of ginger to help with my nausea. Feeling A LOT better now 🙂

I promised a different breakfast today and I didn’t lie…

Gobbled this mess up. Was 2 egg whites and 1 egg. Goat cheese and raspberry jam. So great. I had packed this for lunch

Lunch was supposed to be a sundried tomato with more goat cheese, roasted veggies and radish sprouts, oranges, leftover salad, granola bar, protein muffin with cashew butter and cottage cheese. Lunch ended up being just the wrap, honey lemon tea and another nap.

We had an early dinner tonight and it was excellent. Brown rice and veggie stirfry.

Recipes pour vous

Orzo Salad with Chickpeas and Dill
(Pretty sure this recipe came from Cooking Light)

1 cup uncooked orzo
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup feta
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 1/2 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
2 cloves of garlic minced
lemon juice to taste ( approx 1 lemon)

Cook pasta, rinse with cold water and set aside.
Combine pasta with onions, cheese, dill and chickpeas in a large bowl.
Combine lemon juice and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Drizzle over pasta and toss to coat.

Feta, Spinach and Pine Nut Stuffed Focaccia

1 recipe focaccia bread
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 a red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
Lots of spinach (6 cups?)
1/2 cup feta
handful of pine nuts
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper
2 tbps almond milk
1 tbsp parm cheese

Preheat over to 375F.

Heat oil in a pan and add onion and garlic and cook until onion is clear, about 3 min. Add as much spinach as you can into the pan and stir until it wilts. Add the rest of the spinach and repeat. Take off burner and stir in feta, pine nuts, salt and pepper and lemon juice.
Place focaccia dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread it into a rectangle ish shape and then put spinach mixture lengthwise over half of dough, leaving a little border. Fold other half of dough over filling; press edges around to close the bread up.
Mix milk and parm and brush over focaccia. Cut a few diagonal slits across.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until brown on top.

Well there you have it. Starting to feel crappy pants again so I’m going to join my puppy and hit the hay. Take care out there! 🙂
