Since we were off school for the holiday, I nearly missed WIAW because all day I swore it was Tuesday! Blonde moment, I suppose. So I rallied and put together this week’s jumble of health food photos:) Thanks to Jenn, as usual! WIAW makes my day:)
Starting of with an invasion of breakfast kale wraps! Although my kale is beginning to die, I just planted a ton of beets, winter squash, and parsnips- looking forward to much more produce! This one is filled with garlic hummus, avocado, Bragg’s, and egg whites.
I know what your thinking….disgusting, right? Don’t judge it ’til you try it! Once you steam the kale, it loses most of it’s bitterness, so the sweet flavors of this Almond Butter/Banana Kale Wrap shine through. Recipe is coming soon, if you can’t guess it already 😉
One word. Gnu. Since I was writing a review (read previous post!), these amazing bars have invaded my AM snackage. My favorite? Peanut Butter or the Banana Walnut!
The same old, same old for lunches…quinoa, salad, tempeh, etc. However, I did do something new, and stirred a bit of curry sauce and garam masala into my quinoa for Curried Quinoa…yum!
Am I the only one who likes eating salad out of giant bowls? Perhaps. It’s the only way I can really coat it in my new favorite Tahini Balsamic dressing! 🙂
No WIAW is complete without a yogurt mess, which have been making up my PM snacking. However, I have switched to organic yogurt completely after stumbling across one of those animal videos- seriously sad 😦
On a lighter note, the highlight of this week’s dinners was the result of splurging on Whole Food’s king salmon- just as good as it sounds! I made three marinades: Bragg’s and Garlic, Light Teriyaki, and Paprika. As usual, my favorite was Bragg’s! Although high in sodium, that stuff is like gold to me;)
A close second is my Whole Food’s salad (of course!) I made sure to include Vegan Channa Masala, jicama, buffalo tofu, hummus, sesame broccili, and beets. Here’s a trick- when you can, only get the specialty salad toppings like what I just listed, then bring your salad home and use the produce and standard veggies you have as your base. Definitely cuts the price when you aren’t weighed down by tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.!
Desserts? Mostly fruit, and then this combo came along …papaya with Greek yogurt! Loving this:)
Siggis– Low sugar, high protein, super thick…need I see more?
WildWood Veggie Burgers- One of the best I have tried next to Sunshine Burger’s- review coming soon:)
Follow Your Heart Balsamic Vinegar- The perfect blend of sweet and salty, with the tang of balsamic. Love!
Last but not least, this is what I have been loving most out of this week’s cosmetics:
Physician’s Formula SPF 50 make-up. I love that you don’t have to wear sunscreen and makeup…plus there is no greasy feel!
Off to homework…and sadly it’s not studying you WIAW posts;)
Have a great rest of your week!
