Out of our entire front and backyard, out of all the trees and bushes, and rocks, out of all the hundreds of millions of possible places, my dog chose to bury his bone under the ONLY beet that successfully sprouted in my garden. Gotta love him;) So that’s when I knew it was time to get serious about my garden that I began to neglect once school started. I watered, gave my kale some TLC, planted some seeds and actually read the directions, and trimmed my broccoli. Wala! Now, my garden is revived and I’m getting tons of veggies from it, which you will see coming up in this WIAW post. Thank you to Jenn for hosting WIAW!
But first, some pony pictures…
Love this boy!
Back to the food, breakfasts have been variations of one blissful thing- green smoothies! From Caramel Apple (recipe coming soon)…
to Chocolate Gingerbread…
I’ve been loving fall flavors!
Siggi’s amazing yogurt had also been a huge part of this week’s eats, because when you have a deal like this, how can you restrain from loading the entire shelf into your cart?:) Buying 8 yogurts, I saved over 7 dollars!
Clean and simple is the theme of this week’s lunches, featuring a ton of salads. My favorites? The garbanzo bean/garden kale/ beet/ hummus/ avocado shake up and Trader Joes Super Spinach Salad (with 1/2 the dressing and cranberries to cut that sugar). This salad is convenient, filling, and healthy, so I highly recommend it!
Another fall fave- apples. Specifically, organic apples. More specifically, Ambrosia Organic Apples. Perfection!
With homework, I have been making dinners that I can prep ahead of time, including my beloved Spaghetti Squash Pasta (with broccoli, kale, and basil from the garden!) and Vegan Lasagna with Tofu Ricotta. I posted this recipe a few days ago, and honestly, it gets better every time:)
Product loving has a sweet theme this week!
1.) Green and Black’s Organic Dark Chocolate 2.) Kind Dark Chocolate, Nuts, and Sea Salt
3.)TJ’s European Style Organic Plain Nonfat Yogurt
I know plenty of people who aren’t fond of that yogurt, but I happen to love it! It’s neither super thick or creamy, but has the best tartness.
…and cosmetic loving- I picked up a sample of Jane Carter Solution Moisture Shampoo, and I am definitely going to try to pick up a whole bottle! This shampoo is gentle, but easily gets rid of grease.
That’s all for WIAW this week! Thanks for reading and have an amazing Wednesday!
