Do you ever have those moments when you find something that’s always been there that makes your life in the cooking world sooo much easier? Organizing my kitchen a bit this week, I found so many amazing gadgets that I don’t know how I lived without! You’ll see those coming up in my WIAW post, with much thanks to Jenn over here for hosting WIAW! Hope you all have been having a wonderful week so far:)
Introducing my new favorite smoothie- a tangy peach green smoothie that I haven’t though of a name for yet;) I put a bit of kefir or yogurt in it which compliments the peaches so well! Recipe coming soon…
…and of course, my beloved Hummus, Avocado, and Egg toast. My family thinks I’m crazy when I eat this. I happen to think it’s the best combo since peanut butter and jelly.
Here’s where gadget #1 comes in- the AvoSaver! Where has this been all my life?! The way I eat avocados, I’ll probably be buying two more of these.
This handy little tool has been perfect for keeping my avocados fresh for my salads, like my marinated in Bragg’s tempeh, beet, kale, avo, spinach, and beet salad.
Sweet potatoes are also very in, since I just bought a bag of mini organic ones from Trader Joe’s! So adorable.
Yogurt bowls with Tj’s Organic European Style Yogurt, with my all time new favorite yogurt besides Siggi’s, have also made frequent appearances.
Yes, I’m in love with this pink ramekin! It’s about time that ramekins got some color.
Handy Innovation #2: The “Baked Potato” button on my microwave! You must think I’ve been living under a rock, but I’ve never noticed this. It’s the perfect innovation when, you know, you don’t have 2 hours lying around to bake a sweet potato;)
Baked Tofu, veggies, and sweet potato. Perfection.
Last but not least, my individual healthy “cobblers”. Made with oats and whole wheat flour, these are the perfect thing to study with. If only I enjoyed Pre-Calc as much as I enjoy these…

1.) Go Raw Banana Bread Mini Bars– These actually taste like banana bread! I love their density, and they’re packed with flax.
2.) LARA Uber Bars– My favorite find in Sam’s Club, and about the only thing I’m super happy to buy a giant box of!:)
3.) TJ’s European Style Nonfat Yogurt– My new favorite yogurt. It’s tart, but has such good flavor that it can be eaten plain, and is the perfect balance of thick and thin.
As for cosmetic loving, I got a Clarisonic! This gadget makes my skin
Have a great rest of your weeek!
