Although they were magically delicious, they weren’t very nutritious. (I know the leprechaun would disagree but I think I’ve believed enough talking heads in my day which have lead to many trust issues in my now adult life…)
This week’s eats consisted of a few healthier rainbows and also an “it looks bad, but trust me it’s good for you” recipe!
Let’s do something that has never been done on C.C.D. before…go backwards in time…most recent to oldest!
I need to preface this with a short rant. Is it just me or does everyone feel the need to hog and breathe all over the kitchen when you need it the most? I know I’ve outgrown my parent’s home…but seriously, would it kill you people to have some consideration when a girl is RUNGRY and HANGRY? #mothermayI #manners
This obviously was the cure:
Um whoever can gulp protein powder down with water is a friggin’ champ! I need my almond milk and extra fruit/veggie additives for it to really make me go “MMM MMM GOOD.”
Okay, this one shouldn’t be too hard to guess…another fantastic rainbow themed dinner…golden carrots, avocado, peppadews, peppers, fresh grated parmesan, and underneath it all…brown rice pasta with some jarred sauce. (I know, big Italian let down.)
Mini egg muffins are becoming quite the staple over the past week…These were made with mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, ricotta, and peppers! Spinach for garnish…which I obviously couldn’t refrain from eating.
A confession…I haven’t delved into a sweet potato in probably about a year! I only like eating them during the colder months… 65 degrees was cold enough to whip some out! This was topped with some organic butter and cinnamon!
NEW FINDS ALERT:
Okay, the first one actually comes out annually… so it’s not really all that new…but get your hands on one if you can! I had some of this with my almond coconut milk and also mixed it in with some of my plain chobani as a snack…pumpkin pie party!
Find #2– There are no words. I always ate Reese’s because I grew up on them being more common around my house then fruit or milk. I am so glad my tastebuds have the chance to be graced with the presence of these fine thangs…
I leave you with a tease…
I know this kind of looks unappetizing, but it was superb!
It involves banana and chia, so stay tuned for the rest of the recipe on the blog tomorrow!
Are you still eating rainbows now that it’s fall? You better be! And they better not be originating from any kind of boxes!
Peace, love, and rainbows!
