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 🙂 Mine was not so lucky lol
haha like the monroe piercing?? I totally added granola and cashew butter after of course 🙂
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 🙂 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 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
Sweet dreams monstas. Until tomorrow!! Hopefully I can get a chance to catch up on reading your blogs!
Hey guys! Hope you all had a beeautiful day! The weather was so nice today that I wore my capri lulus and flipflops! FINALLY! 🙂 I’ve also had this song stuck in my head all day. Remember this hit??
Hahaha so awesome. I WISH I could double dutch like those girls 🙂
Today was uber productive. I took Bizzle for a walk this morning, spent about an hour cleaning up his nasty winter poop in the backyard and cleaning out the flower beds, cleaned all the cupboards, organized a few, did all my laundry and made a raw chili wrap (it took soo long). That might not seem like a lot but I felt like I got a lot done. Hopefully tomorrow will be the same.
EATS today are as follows:
Overnight oats of 1/3 cup oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/3 cup almond milk, container of itty bitty apricot Yo Baby yogurt. Topped with granola, strawberries and cashew butter.
I found this recipe in the Raw Food Real World cookbook by Matthew Kenney and Sarma Melngailis. SO GREAT. This is my version. Hope you like it as much as we did!
1 cup fresh pineapple
3/4 of a small banana
1/2 cup strawberries
3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
1 tsp agave
1/2 cup blueberries
In a blender, puree all ingredients except blueberries until smooth. Pour out about half of the mixture into serving glasses, filling each glass about halfway. Add the blueberries to the remaining shake in the blender and blend until smooth. Gently pout the remaining blueberry shake over the pineapple-strawberry shake.
I found a new attachment on my mandolin and until I get my spiralizer, this will have to do 🙂 I mixed some zucchini with leftover red thai curry paste, a veggie burger and some mixed greens. I had a wrap with laughing cow on the side.
Look what we got yesterday!!
Young thai coconuts! YAY!! So many raw recipes are made with these and I couldn’t wait to crack into them. Well, turns out that one of them was rotten! BOOO! The flesh was a nasty purple color and the water was pinky. YUCK.
Here is the good meat
I mixed this with about 1/4 cup of water, 1 tbsp of chili powder, 1 tbsp psyllium husk and 1/4 of a tomato in my food processor until it started to conceal. I then poured it onto a Teflex sheet and thew it in my dehydrator for about 5 hrs.
I’ll be making a wrap with this tomorrow for lunch 🙂
I marinated some veggies in some italian dressing and some cuban seasoning for kebabs
sliced some potatoes with my new handheld mandolin, added some goat chedda and chives and baked for about 20 min at 400F.
and doused my fish with lemon juice and pepper.
and my plate
After supper, Andrew had a request for chocolate mousse with tofu. My friend Jaime made it one night when we were over there for supper so after finding a recipe and running to the store, we came up with this:
I didn’t take a picture when we ate it because we didn’t wait long enough and it wasn’t very pretty 🙂 Tomorrow you will get one. And possibly a recipe.
K I’m out like trout. Just ate my feelings in Triscuits 😦 See you tomorrow!!!
PS. I’m making overnight oats (again) x 2 for tomorrow!! That’s right. The mister wants in on this fantasico breakfast. So happy.
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
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.
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.
Sweet Potato Salad
3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp stoneground mustard
tiny bit of fresh grated ginger
salt and pepper
Use as much of everything to taste.You can’t really mess this up 🙂
I made a wrap using the leftover veggies from supper the night before. I just added goat cheese and sprouts.
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 😉
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.
Hope you guys have a GREAT weekend! Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow. I am on days off in T-14 hrs!!!
Qs for you: I love love love potato and macaroni salad. Do you have a go to recipe that you love?? Any songs that you suggest I download? I was so used to having over 700 songs on my ipod and now i only have 30!! PLEASE HELP!!!
