This week’s WIAW is a short<ish> post, because teachers don’t exactly count studying the angle at which to photograph your breakfast as studying …Or spending
hours a while reading other blogger’s WIAW posts! So, I’ll jump right in…you’re here for the photos, anyways, right? 😉 As usual, thanks a million to Jenn!
First up- the best breakfast of this week! Half of an Udi’s GF Bagel with homemade hummus, avocado, and egg+egg white, all topped with Garlic Gold. A [messy] tower of perfection!
I have also been enjoying a daily green smoothie, which has only two flaws. 1.) Putting my insane amount of ingredients back in their places. (As a result, have discovered a brilliant new idea: put each ingredient away right after adding it to the blender!) …and 2.) Cleaning the blender. Hmm… still working on that one. 🙂 Here’s my line-up, this one for a basic banana protein smoothie.
I’m happy to say I’ve found two new smoothie recipes all in the same week that are definitely keepers!
1.) Banana Chai 2.) Blackberry Cobbler
These Kaia kale chips that I’m reviewing have made up the bulk of my snacking this week:) How could they not, especially in Sea Salt and Vinegar flavor? Review coming soon!:)
My latest favorite meal is lunch, mainly because I can premake healthy meals like hummus, veggie, and Ezekiel sandwiches in adorable Tupperware! #lifeofafoodblogger 🙂
…and because of Zaba’s. Where else do you get that much amazing guacamole??
More snacking with overnight oats (old pic) and yogurt messes….
I’m in a tempeh rut. I love, love, love the density, flavor, and protein! Thus, I’ve been trying to avoid having the same exact method of preparing it by trying out new recipes for tempeh dinners. Here’s my tempeh burgers:
Just combine 1 tsp. Braggs, 1/2 pack tempeh, handful of greens, 1/2 of an onion, 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1 T. Tahini, and 1 clove of garlic in a food processor, then shape into patties and bake. Done!
…along with marinated tofu steaks like this one:
Complete with a roasted garlic clove, 1/2 a giant sweet potato, roasted broccoli, and salad.
Nothing beats fresh mango, especially for dessert:)
Finally, here’s a friend’s most definitely blog-worthy dinner: Veggie Nachos! Consisting of Mary’s Gone Crackers, Avocado, Hummus, and soy strips cooked with onion, tomato, etc. Sometimes, simple is the way to go:)
Last but not least, this week’s product lineup!
1.) Bear Naked Banana Nut Granola- Tastes sinful and exactly like a banana nut muffin!
2.) Garden of Life Raw Protein- The price is a bit high, but the splurge is such a good investment! This has more than 25 servings of pure high quality delicious enough tasting protein 🙂
3.) TJ’s Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds- A nice change of pace from my usual raw. I love the saltiness and the mix of creamy and crunchy!
and my favorite this week…
Omega Swirl in Key Lime: I wasn’t a fan of the strawberry banana, but the swirl definitely redeemed itself in the key lime flavor! Tasted like dessert to me, and boosted my entire Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie:) My Whole Foods has the best samples!
Finally, cosmetics loving…
John Masters Organics Rose Foaming Face Wash- This product has a pleasant smell and I love how gentle yet cleansing it is. And it’s organic? Love!
Well, that’s a wrap for this week’s WIAW- I’m off to make a cup of tea before going to bed:) Hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week and come visit soon- I have a ton of recipes and a few review coming up!
