No, I’m sorry to disappoint you, Shady is not back again
. Unless you count the other day when I walked into the gym through a separate entrance to avoid the chatty cathies…and they approached me as a team of flesh-eating sharks as to why they hadn’t seen me walk in earlier. (That
was awkward. I’m not a great master of deception. When I’m lying, (if at all), you’ll always know!)
So, it’s been a while. It’s time to dust the cobwebs off the cupboards and eat. some. food!
I’m still deeply shaken over the whole hurricane issue we had up here, but here were some of my healthy comforts during the storm:
Breakfast bowl of peace prior to the storm. In there is: coconut flour, cocoa powder, almond milk, organic date granola, chocolate chips, coconut sugar, and banana.
Organic beet, potato, and onion mash
Canned was my first, middle, and last name.
After the storm, I was so graciously thanking god…for being able to find… eggs! It took about 5 days, but I finally feasted my eyes upon them and ran to them like it was the last drop of water on earth! (reasons why I could never be vegan)
Quinoa, chickpeas, peppers, egg, romaine. Eat clean, train mean fuel!
Some more breakfast type dishes for you:
Made with crushed apples, vanilla protein powder, egg whites, 1/2 banana, almond milk, and drizzled with vanilla chobani
Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread, almond milk, cinnamon, mashed banana for batter. Coat both sides of bread, cook for 2-6 minutes, and voila! Thank you instagram and Tara Stiles for this one!
Now comes the soups and greens parts of this week’s WIAW:
*Disclaimer: You know I’m one to make everything from scratch where I can be in control so I don’t have hidden hydrogenated oils or carageenan lurking around, but desperate times call for desperate measures. No eggs at the time meant lots of canned substitutions.
Amy's Organic Lentil Vegetable soup
Wolfgang Puck's Tomato Basil Bisque
Sauteed broccoli in coconut oil with red pepper
Gingerade kombucha, romaine/avocado salad, and Amy's organic bean chili
Hearty kale soup with carrots, yellow peppers, black pepper, onions,, and broccoli
Chickpeas, butter/red leaf lettuce, sprouts, mozzarella, avocado with a drizzle of EVOO, sea salt, and vinegar over top
Now for “the goods”:
At least I didn't devour them all in one sitting! #willpower
1 frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, almond milk as needed- throw all into blender, top with nutmeg
Oh, how did those get there?
A banana based "faux yo"
I always buy this brand simply for the name. #taleofasweetsaddict
I posted the recipe for these a while back. Yes I ate about 3 mini ones in one sitting!
Pumpkin Spice Chai Almond Balls- recipe posted yesterday
Are you full? You should be. Especially when dessert was the size of Texas.
What have been your eats lately? Into comfort foods during colder months or not?
Peace, love, and no more hiatuses!
