Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Food Lately

Hey sweets!

Let’s talk food lately.

I get on kicks and eat things for weeks on end, get bored of it, start with something new, remember the precious thing, and then the cycle restarts.

Today I wanted to share a few things that have tickled my fancy lately.

Like the fact that Morningstar finally stepped up and created a veggie burger made with nonGMO soy.

I was so excited to see these in the store, and am glad to know Morningstar listened to what so many vegetarians and vegans have been begging for.

Food lately

The burger is good, full of veggies, and doesn’t taste fake. A winner overall.

Okay, confession time.

I’m kind of anti juice.

I mean, I like juice, but so much of it is full of sugar. Plus it’s liquid calories. Calories I can use for other things like whole fruit.

Or peanut butter.

Anyway, when Will’s family visited last month I picked up this Tropicana Farmstand juice.

Food lately

I had some leftover and decided to swap out my almond milk for juice in my green monsters to use it up.

Let’s just say it was the best worse decision ever.

Or worst best decision?

I have no idea.

Let’s just leave it at being a good decision. 

It turned my green monsters into a delicious choco fruit smoothie (thanks also impart to my chocolate protein powder).

I’m not going to make buying this stuff a habit, but I definitely see myself doing this as a treat again fairly soon.

The 90s called and they want their food back.
Food lately

I had an insatiable craving for something crunchy and salty last week. All too often I succumb to digging through Will’s chip bag for the tiny pieces at the bottom just to kill the craving.

As an aside, why are those tiny pieces so darn good!?

Anyway, on a whim I tossed these guys I to my cart. Like juice, I kind of feel like rice cakes are airy nothingness and empty calories.

However, here’s the thing. Either I eat 150 calories worth of super processed greasy potato chips, or I eat two rice cakes for a total of 70 calories.

If I mix together some PB2 as a topper, I still have a crunchy and salty snack for under 100 calories.

It had to be done.

I don’t know why, but I totally think of the 90s, Billy Blanks, and neon when I think of rice cakes.

Here’s my lunch this week:

Nigella’s Beetroot Feta Pecan Salad.

I’ve said it a hundred times before, and I’ll say it again. I have a total girl crush on Nigella.

I don’t often make anything she cooks, but I find such soothing pleasure watching her cook.

These stuffed poblanos are de.lic.ious.

I made them for dinner last week and they were a hit. I substituted brown rice and even veganized my portion and omitted the sour cream and cheese, and they were still delicious. Yum.

Guysssss. You have to talk me out of making whoopie pies this weekend.

Help!

I used to make these sorts of things all the time years ago when I wasn’t into healthy eating.

And they were magnificent.

Actually they are magnificent.

They’re super easy too. You use box cake mix and can frosting, and then sort of oomph it up a bit with your own ingredients.

Anyway, I saw something on TV that made me think about them and now I.cant.stop.

I’m thinking if I impulsively decide to do it, I need a game plan…

and since I basically have decided to do it, here’s what I’m thinking:

-1/3 to my parents
-1/3 to P and Layla
-1/3 for me and Will

That’s 4 a piece, which is much more manageable.

I’d hate to find myself hiding out in our back bedroom with the entire pan, crying while watching You’ve Got Mail. #eatingyourfeelings

Good plan.

That’s all she wrote today.

Anything I need to add to my cart?
