Appetite!

Breakfast 1 cup coconut milk, 2 handfuls spinach, 1 scoop protein powder, 2 cups ice, ½ cup water, 1 banana Mmm, lick. Lunch Leftover orzo/veggies on top of a bed of spinach Dinner I received a sample of Rice Select products to … Continue reading

Kitchen Creation

I haven’t touched my computer in over 36 hours. It’s been glorious. Among other things, I’ve been busy in the kitchen today. Meeker agreed that this veggie/orzo kitchen creation was blog-worthy. To start… I cut up the first set of veggies: bell peppers, eggplant, red onion, zucchini, and garlic. Then, tossed them with about 2 … Continue reading

Enjoying Eats

I forgot how much I love green monsters for breakfast! So refreshing, and perfect for my (always unsettled) preggo belly. The mix: 1 cup coconut milk, 1 banana, 1 cup ice, 1 scoop protein powder, ½ cup water, 10(ish) ice cubes, 2 -3 handfuls of spinach For lunch… Leftover risotto Meeker and I tag teamed … Continue reading

Yes, I want risotto.

Breakfast Toasty. One with homemade mixed nut butter, one with earth balance. Lunch Leftover Jamaican jerk fajitas – this batch had chicken in it (as opposed to my all veggie fajitas last night) because they were actually Meeker’s leftovers. He’s nice to me. And it’s been a while since I’ve shown you a sweater-wearing apple… … Continue reading

Squished

I turned on the air conditioning in my car today. In February. I don’t even use my air conditioning in July. Baby Cakes is making me hot, and, as someone who is freezing cold 90% of the time, I love it. Breakfast Pinova apple and my homemade nut butter We had ½ cup(ish) each of … Continue reading

Memory Soup

Breakfast has slowly become one of my least favorite meals. Maybe it’s Baby Cakes’ fault. Maybe it’s not. Either way, I had a piece of toast before my workout this morning. Boring. Definitively not picture worthy. Lunch was much better. Spinach salad with cucumbers, pecans, raisins, and ½ a blended grapefruit as the dressing. Plus … Continue reading

Three Sisters’ Stew

Have you ever heard of Three Sisters’ Stew? Meeker and I went to see my family (for a few brief hours) yesterday, and when we walked into my parents house, my mom had this soup simmering on the stove. She called it Three Sisters’ Stew. From what I gather, there are a myriad of different … Continue reading

Early Morning

Woke up naturally at 4:45am this morning. Ew. But the good news is I’m now up, making gluten free vegan pancakes and watching Walk the Line. Love me some Johnny Cash (and Joaquin Phoenix/Reese Witherspoon). Recipe Here. When it gets to be a more appropriate hour I have plans for the gym and then to … Continue reading

Bronco Bama

I caved last night and went to the store to buy a 10lb.bag of grapefruit. I couldn’t get that sweet ruby red taste out of my mind. I had two before bed last night, and one for breakfast this morning. I also had a bowl of oats/nuts/granola When I got to school, a sweet co-worker … Continue reading

Apples to Apples

My eating was kind of lame today. I had fruit on the brain – but had only packed 3 apples in my lunch. You’d think three would be enough, but you’d be wrong. I buy 12 apples a week, and I try to make sure I have at least two in my lunch every day. So … Continue reading
