Is Kyle’s birthday. 

We are celebrating for reals later on this week with a date night (!!).  My mom is going to babysit.  It’s exciting. 

Today, though, we have been hanging out enjoying the fact that we are all three together.  We’ve already gone on a nice walk and the rest of the day includes season 2 of Downton Abbey and take-out from Veggie Grill (birthday coupons = free entree, heyooo). 


Oh and I made cake!  And frosting!  Both are vegan and sugar free.  I’ll post about it later. 

Last night I made a HEAB inspired kale recipe [based on this recipe].


Which is basically kale sautéed in butter.  I’ve only ever used coconut oil or olive oil, so this was a nice twist.  I’m definitely going to continue to enjoy kale with butter (Earth Balance) in the future. 


I had it with brown rice (with more EB) and a fried egg.  Such a yummy simple plate.  Maggie’s macro March posts kinda prompted me to make this combo(although it’s not too much different from what I’d ordinarily throw together – it’s basically just a hippie bowl plated differently). 


It’s a rough life.

    Happy bday to Kyle!
    Glad you are enjoying macro march 🙂 I am too!
    Kale + butter (or EB) is SO good.
    Now I have to start thinking about what I want for dinner…

    Happy Birthday Kyle, and yes, butter makes everything better…especially kale, rice, and eggs. Winning combo for sure. Hope you guys enjoy your date night later this week. I bet your mom is so excited about babysitting. I’m sure P will be in very good hands.

    Happy Birthday to Kyle! I was at Veggie Grill today with my mom and she used her birthday coupon too! Definitely can’t complain about free food. (:

    I’ve only ever sauteed my kale in coconut oil or olive oil as well but using EB sounds so delicious! Let’s me honest, anything tastes good smothered in that stuff…I’m pretty sure every single one of my meals includes either hummus, EB, or a nut butter of some kind. It’s a problem. (:

    I can’t wait for that cake recipe! Looks super chocolaty, just how I like it. lately I’m loving kale with Whole Food’s zesty tahini dressing. It’s seriously addicting.
