This weekend I relaxed more than I have in a loooooong time. I didn’t exercise. I hardly cooked. To be honest, I pretty much spent the weekend watching the Australian Open, football, and hanging out with Kyle (I did a fair amount of eating as well). If that’s not the picturesque weekend, well, shoot me.
I have a TON of photos, but they aren’t very glamorous and don’t require much in the way of explanations…so…without further ado…
JAVA the hut
Bluffin’ with my muffin
How to make quinoa ghetto
YouShake customized “Blended Bliss” flavored protein shake
🙁 Needed more
cowbell strawberry (sorry, but not worth the $$)
Finally, a little taste of domesticity!
Mushrooms, broccoli, and zucchini sautéed in Bragg’s liquid aminos…with seitan tossed in after the veggies got their sizzle on.
Mountains out of molehills
Love me some sloppy seconds
Truth in Yogi tea bags
Kashi GoLean Chocolate Almond Toffee chewy bar – because sometimes 31 g of sugar before you go to bed seems like a good call
(Let the record show I had a very interrupted night’s sleep, which I’m blaming on
my monthly lady situation the crap filled bar I had just before zzzzzz…)
Hormones can’t be ignored
Notice a chocolate trend?
The new chocolate flavored Oikos greek yogurt by Stonyfield gets a thumbs up from me…the chocolate part is in the bottom and after you stir it in, it’s a nice sweet contrast to the tangy greek yogurt.
Peebers & jazz
Lemony Snicket zevia
Hummus + Salsa + Avocado = guac-hum-mole
Rick Bayless is a Mexican genius…his chips make me feel like I should have a margarita in my hand
Asking me to choose between two kinds of hummus is like asking Heidi to pick one plastic surgeon…crazy talk.
Lasagna and Caesar salad (vegan versions of both).
Atop the romaine I sprinkled a blend of lemon juice and balsamic vinegar with vegan parmesan. The lasagna was perfection if I do say so myself.
Dessert was a rather decadent open faced banana split…
1) Split the nanner
2) Apply nutbutter of your choosing (Justin’s Maple Almond Butter)
3) Add toppings (I went halfsies with raisins and vegan chocolate chips)
Could you die?
Yogi Stomach Ease tea is my ever-faithful sidekick
Overnight oats made with PB + 1/2 banana + cinn + agave syrup + coconut milk
Simple is as simple
Tree of Life popcorn? Well, I’ve never heard of this brand, but there are only four ingredients and they are all organic.
Salted and nooch-i-fied to my liking
Four little sweet potatoes sitting in a tree…k-i-s-s-i-n-g…
There is a direct correlation between the shelf life of BBQ sauce and the number of sweet potatoes in the apartment…I’d say anything over a week is being generous.
Xanthan Gum is great in smoothies, but a disaster if you spill it…seriously, the table is still a slippery mess after 4 mega wipe downs
This smoothie contained:
- 3/4 bag of frozen cherries (approx 1 1/2 cups)
- 2 tbsp Xagave nectar
- 1/3 cup Lactaid
- 2 tsp (plus unmeasured spilled amount) Xanthan gum
So creamy smooth! The xanthan gum makes it so fluffy!!
