#WIAW- Food-ably Late


If you could take a snapshot of last week and compare it to this week, my schedule has gone from zero to hero in the blink of an eye.

It all started with a bunch of freelance writing opportunities I garnered for myself and they all just so happened to contact me within the week…some good, others not so good. It went on to actual job opportunities and now possibly a solid two job offers!

September is really the month for change and re-hiring evidently! Here’s something you don’t usually see on my blog… I am COUNTING MY BLESSINGS. ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL. (You mean, you’re not being sarcastic?) (insert serious face emoji here.)

I have begun to feel the wrath of scheduling and time management, especially when it comes to blogging, (and I haven’t even begun any of these wonderful opps yet) some of my posts were getting pushed to the wayside.

I hate being fashionably late to most gatherings in life…mostly because I usually don’t associate myself with the word “fashionable.” I’ll tell you something I dislike even more than being fashionably late, being food-ably late! (sorry guys- that’s all you get when I’m running on empty and my head is somewhere between the Jersey Shore and Pennsylvania.)

I’m so glad some of my food choices align with Jenn’s new theme of fall and eating a bit healthier!

Let’s get ready to grub-ble!

Protein Party Pancakes- Coconut flakes, eggs, banana, agave, PB Crave (Coco Nanas)

 

Cocoa/cinnamon dusted fruit with creamy PB

Extremely mad at myself for eating a GMO peach...but it was SO SUCCULENT

 

Cado & Egg Sandwich...keep in mind this was before my dairy/grain cutbacks

 

High protein cocoa mug cake with PB filling...Do you ever get sick of PB? NO.

A meal fit for a pauper- brown rice pasta, turkey sausage, peppers, onions, half a piece of bread

Creamy Broccoli Soup with Cilantro garnish

Grilled Chicken parting the sea of grapes

Pumpkin Proats with plain Chobani

New Marshall's find: Something Natural- Strawberry Peach flavor

Olive Mushroom Hummus

More pancakes...these may be the blueberry banana ones?

REAL LIFE GRAPE TREE found in my backyard

So even though I was late to the party, at least I brought some food!

What were your eats looking like this week? Anything new and exciting? Anything school/fall related? Are you loving pumpkin? 

Enough questions for you? 😉

Peace, love, and eats!

  1. Olive Mushroom hummus! Yum that sounds great! Do you have recipe?

    • choc3178 says:

      it was so good! yes- it’s pretty basic…I apologize, but I don’t measure…I threw into a food processor… almost a whole can of olives, a tiny can of mushrooms (you can use fresh ones if you prefer), 1 can chick peas, some sea salt, about 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil, and some lemon juice. Most hummus-es call for tahini or sesame but I usually never use it. Enjoy! Thanks for reading! 🙂

  2. Hey, better late than never, right? Coco Nanas PB Crave and coconut pancakes? Crap, why have I not done this yet? Guess I know what I’m making for b-fast this weekend!

    Nothing Fall related yet, but getting close. I use pumpkin year round, but the other squash varieties will be a welcome change! Besides some tasty baked salmon cakes I made, nothing new in my foodie world.

    Everything looks delicious, and I agree with you, PB never gets old!

      lol yes- it was amazeballs! I don’t think my sweet tooth will ever go away completely, but at least these were semi healthy! I don’t know how I hardly ate it before blogging, it’s in my diet every day now! Thanks for reading! I’ll have to check out your salmon cakes!

  3. I’m constantly on a time crunch with posting on my blog. I wish I could find more time on the weekend to schedule more posts so I’m not always rushing to get them done during the week. I need to be more disciplined in my sleeping schedule now that winter is coming up.
    That broccoli soup looks good! Recipe please?
    And congrats on two solid job opps! Let me know how things go! Still keeping my fingers crossed for your apt search too!

    • choc3178 says:

      thank you my dear! I appreciate the support, I need all the luck I can get! 🙂 broccoli soup was get this…PACKAGED…it was an organic brand (Imagine) I believe and then I just kind of added extras into it. Love soups for colder weather!

  4. OOOOH! What is in that broccoli soup of yours! Must try! Also, completely unrelated to soup but still relevant: those protein party pancakes look so good!

    • choc3178 says:

      the soup was actually an organic broccoli one from a carton! I should try reconstructing it though! yes- the pancakes were absolutely amazing! Never had any that were flour free before!
