A Great Start to the Week

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I had my hands full with Zazu… I caught him burying his bones in my garden beds- look at that guilty face!

Speaking of dogs, have any of you heard of the Text from Dog Tumblr? Some of them are pretty funny- I like this one:)



After laughing at that, I had breakfast which was Crockpot Oats with cinnamon (the best), almond butter, and a green smoothie.


I packed some energy squares to hold me over until lunch, then threw together a sandwich that is my current obsession. This lunch is filling, so healthy, and really easy! Here’s a little tutorial:)





I put leftover sweet potato on it the other day and it was amazing! It sounds weird, but it’s my new favorite sandwich topping. I also packed an orange and crackers alongside! The crackers were Lydia’s Organics- go enter my giveaway here!


After school I took care of the ponies. I was lucky enough to get to see my old pony recently, too! I got him when I was 7 and now he is retired and is owned by a 4-year-old girl. He may be 28, but he thinks he is 2:) I couldn’t ask for a better home for him and am so lucky to have him in such a great place.


Dinner included this Bob’s Red Mill Cornbread. This mix is dangerous-it’s ridiculously good!


I crumbled a little over a butternut blackbean crockpot chili and ate a million  another few little squares alongside. Monday dinners are always so good because I spend a few minutes on Sunday night putting something together in the crockpot, then just plug it in on Monday morning.


After which I did my homework, read some awesome blogs like Bite-Sized Thoughts, Abby Eats Almonds, Running with Spoons, and Clean Eating Veggie Girl, broke into my TJ’s chocolate stash, watched a few minutes of random shows while painting my nails (this multi-tasking didn’t work so well haha), and fell asleep. Loved this relaxing day.

Hope you are having a great start to your week, too!

  1. Yum Sunnie – so many lovely eats. Naughty Zazu, he obviously appreciated your planting skills ;). That sandwich sounds great, what veggies do you put inside? And your pony looks great for 28 – and very pleased to see you!

  4. I am so jealous of your lunch. We have NO food and I must get to the grocery store.
    Where is the that butternut chili recipe hiding? And the crockpot oats. Yum! Going ot make a green spinach smoothie and get to work because someone I have spinach in my house : )

  5. I love the veggie sandwiches 🙂 I need to start making these. I love that they are both low calorie but filling! GREAT idea. I know sandwiches can really be made with any type of veggies/spreads but I feel like mine are always so plain. I like the idea of hummus and avocado.
