Hey peeps!

Happy 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.

Laundry.

THAT IS ALL.

B-O-R-I-N-G

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 β™₯

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 πŸ™‚

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.

Delish.

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!!)

Sweet dreams!

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 πŸ™‚

BYYEEEE!

Paije xx

I sure am!! Most of you, probably not. I am on days off so Monday is the sweetest day this week πŸ™‚ Sorry I haven’t been here for the last couple of days, I just feel like I have too much going on between night shifts. You understand. I have lots of pics of the last two days but I’ll just spotlight a few of the food ones so I’m not here ALL NIGHT LONG (all niiiight).

I don’t know which day I got these, but they were the highlight of my last couple days so they are going to go first.

Orchids are my faaavorite! Orchids and tulips. Andrew is a good boyfriend. Haha.

Some breakfasts included homemade hashbrowns, peppers, mushrooms and a poached egg

waffle sandwich with two egg whites, lc and jam. Topped with a tbsp of maple syrup and smushed.

spinach smoothie with 1 cup original unsweetened almond milk, 3/4 banana, a handful of blueberries, two big handfuls of spinach and 3 strawberries.

yes I like to eat crap colored smoothies

Lunches are sort of mixed with dinners because I just eat all night long on night shifts. Really. I should probably get help.

new wrap with mustard, hummus, spinach, peppers, veggie burger, and pickles with steamed edamame.

These wraps are the shiiiiit. Go get yourself some.

Wok Box Jungle Curry with all vegetables and an Awake tea latte from buckys.

whole wheat macaroni and broccoli with mushroom gravy and goat chedda.

There are many many many unpictured snacks and little bites here and there. There is one snack though that could not go unpictured. Ranch nuts and bolts. With fishies. From Julie. Oh jeez.

This is literally like crack to me. I am soo addicted. Love love love love β™₯

Speaking of Julie, she wanted to do a little guest post. I shared my orange with her last night and she took a pic with her Blackberry and sent this quote with it:

Well colour me HAPPY!! Paije shared her o-r-a-n-g-e with me! Start a revolution “Up with Paije”

She is so cute. And totally my favorite.

I had a super shweet supper date with my dad and brother tonight. Fish taco. The first bite was kind of raunchy but it got better. Then I put too much habanero sauce on and burnt my mouth. FIRE MOUTH.

So now I’m hungry again. Hmmmm….I have a super craving for theeese pancakes that I saw yesterday, but I will wait for breakfast πŸ™‚

And now, last but not least….MY PACKAGE FINALLY CAME!!! I have been wanting these for the longest time and my mom finally ordered them for me 3 weeks ago. I can’t tell you what they are just yet because that would be no fun, but trust me, it’s going to be awweeesosoososme!!

beasley was just as excited as I was

I am very sad that I didn’t get to participate in National Grilled Cheese Day 😦 but I’m going to try to make up for it tomorrow. Do-overs are allowed here right???

I’ll be back tomorrow with lots of eats and treats and shenanigans. Can’t wait!! Sleep tight monsters!

Paije xx

Ahh go and enter this giveaway by Janetha!! I’ve never had Kombucha before but I would looove to try it!!

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 πŸ˜‰ ) 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 πŸ™‚

✻✻✻

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? πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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!!! β™₯

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

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

Sweet Potato Salad

Dressing:
3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp stoneground mustard
fresh dill
tiny bit of fresh grated ginger
hot sauce
salt and pepper

yams
potatoes
chives
pickles
red pepper

Use as much of everything to taste.You can’t really mess this up πŸ™‚

I made a wrap using the leftover veggies from supper the night before. I just added goat cheese and sprouts.

gobble gobble gobble

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 πŸ˜‰

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!!!

Bye monsters!!!!

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚ 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!

Hellllooo monsters! TGIF hey?! I am blogging from my bed at my parent’s house right now woop woop!! I β™₯ being at home. Sorry about my lame ass post last night. Didn’t realize that I don’t make much sense at 330 am! I’m also sorry for not posting pictures of the yam falafels! WTF, I know. I didn’t say they were god pics but here they are anyhoo

and here it is all wrapped up

Inside this beaut was some organic greens, tzatziki, and tomatoes. And falafels obvvviously. While I was busy being a bad blogga, I forgot to post pics of the finished (NOT over dehydrated) lizard skins.

Yes it looks like someone crapped orange on them. It makes them that much more awesome.

I probably forgot a few more pics in there somewhere (possibly work lunch x2) but I’ll make it up to you with a recipe or two. Happy? πŸ™‚

Bruschetta

3 tomatoes (I used red, orange and yellow)
2 garlic cloves, minced
couple leaves of torn fresh basil
sea salt and lots of black pepper
tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
crunchy bread (I used a garlic loaf)
goat chedda, grated

Cut up tomatoes and mix with garlic, basil, salt and pepper, oils (if using). Toss until just mixed. Throw in fridge for 15-30 minutes to let everything blend together. Toast the bread, top with tomatoes and cheese and broil. I had two bigger slices for dinner or you could also make lots of little ones for appies πŸ™‚

I guess I won’t be posting the recipe for the falafels because I just followed this recipe this time. I left out the bread crumbs, used almond milk and added a few different spices. Definitely fun to play around with.

Breakfast this morning was a simple egg white on a flax bun smothered in the hot jalapeno mustard and dipped in organic ketchup. I give it a 2 out of 10. That mustard is retarded.

I drank a black coffee on the way to Nips and when I got here I was a starvin marvin. Made spanish rice from a box. You bet.

Recognize the bowl?? All my friends had these growing up, too. Did you? Please tell me what they are called.

I also made another protein muffin thing. This time with chocolate protein. And cashew butter. No picture but I’m sure you can image how great it was πŸ˜‰

When I come home I feel so spoiled. Other than spending time with my fam, both my brotha and my motha are GREAT cooks!! (My dad and I are GREAT eaters hehe). This was what was for supper 2nite.

Gahh! Greatness. Brown rice pasta with my mom’s pasta sauce (zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, etc.), vegetables with buckwheat, and spicy confetti salad from Company’s Coming Tonight Magical Meals on Short Notice.

I had a piece of this and black current tea while I got schooled in cards.

Date cake/matrimonial cake or whateves it’s called. It was sure swell. Beasley is trying so hard to play with my kitties. Matty hates him but I think he’s growing on Gucci.

haha the lil monster tries soo hard

Time for me to get some sleep! FINALLY. Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Peace out cub scouts!
