WIAW #39

19 Oct


Hello friends ūüôā

Hope everything is going good on your Wednesday¬†afternoon. Mine is pretty busy- exams at school, studying, and lots of gym time. I am still¬†keeping up with¬†my weight loss challenge even though I’ve only lost a little over 2 pounds in four weeks, haha! I wish that was a joke. Oh well, I have been pushing myself really hard and I can’t even remember the last¬†day I wasn’t sore! <<<- I think that’s when you know you’re doing great!


Gluten-free, protein packed pumpkin spice pancakes {with chocolate chips!}

I found an old recipe on my blog for vegan pancakes then used GF flour instead of whole wheat, and added chocolate chips and lots of pumpkin pie spice instead of just cinnamon. I honestly thought the texture on this cakes where a lot better than the original¬†some-what gooey cakes. The GF flour made the pancakes so much more fluffy (and nutritious ūüėČ ) !


Wet bean burrito!


recycled picture of me and a smoothie, classic.


Almonds and chocolate chips! yes, I ate them just like this ^. One almond, one chocolate chip. Party in the mouth.

What did you eat today?


WIAW week 27

27 Jul


Coconut yogurt (for .29 cents!) topped with homemade granola, and a pear on the side. Later on I ate some oats and a muffin I baked for the market! Yum.

Blueberry Bran Muffin:

Recipe soon!


Homemade mac & chreese! Yum. I made this out of gluten-free brown rice mac noodles and¬†Tal Ronnen’s¬†cashew cream (1 cup soaked cashews overnight,¬†then blended in the Vitamix¬†with¬†water)¬†mixed with a tomato, basil, nooch, S&P, turmeric, and Diaya. I baked in the over at 350 for about 10 minutes until gooey and creamy.¬†I was very impressed with myself! Super creamy and still pretty healthy! It taste so naughty. ūüėČ


Fattoush salad and other random items such as a banana bread LARABAR, hummus, & tempeh.

WIAW week {26}

20 Jul
Hi guys! Happy Wednesday. Hope everyone is having a great week! Mine is pretty busy, as usual. Just catching up on some sleep, baking, school stuff, and experiencing a massive heat wave! I love the sun but when I don’t have time to go swimming or lay out by a pool, a heat wave is slightly annoying! But I’m not complaining, I’d pick a heat wave over a snow storm any day.

So here we are, another weekly WIAW, my favorite time of the week for blogging! Jenn does such a great job hosting the link parties each week, I love the post WIAW blog stalking, so start your own WIAW post today and be sure to link up to the party!


Tofu scramb, whole wheat chocolate chunk scone, a 3 pound bag of the ‘stashies.

Just joking, but seriously, look at how many I ate in the last 4 days! At least half the bag.


Bean burrito, nothing too fancy.


Peach donut? Enough said.

I’ve never seen these before but they were pretty good. The inside is white and hard like a peach, but I like my peaches mushy! I’ve also squeezed in a green smoothie for a snack too, perfect for this heat wave.



Yellow zucchini (not yellow squash!) mixed with artichokes and a few seasoning made my the chef boyfriend. He also made me a kick butt tempeh BBQ sammich that was sooo yummy!


Scott and I are taking our yearly camping vacation out in the middle of no where with no phone, internet, or cable action. I am really looking forward to being “unplugged” for a week,¬†however, I will still keep up on posting with scheduled posts. I know it is still a little over¬†a week away, but I would really like some guest postage while I’m gone! If you are interested in doing a guest post for me (not until July 30th) please please please contact me at whitney10@comcast.net or just comment below and we can¬†discuss topics. ūüôā

Thank you! ‚ô•

WIAW week 12

13 Apr



Pumpkin pancakes!


Gardein¬†chicken wrap with Annie’s Natural Goddess dressing¬†and butternut squash!




This gooey wrap with cream “cheese”, tofurkey, mushrooms and spinach.

Yes, today’s meals were filled with lots of meat/cheese alternatives. Yummy yummy. :/

What I didn’t tell you-

The night after my run (Sunday night) I became extremely ill. I went to bed at 11, woke at 1, felt like throwing up, didn’t go back to sleep until 5:30. It was horrible. What was up with this? It is extremely rare for me to wake up in the middle of the night. What could have caused this?

  1. Food poisoning?

  2. Eating the left over pumpkin that was in the fridge for a few too many days?


  3. Taking a pain med before bed? (pain meds can sometimes make me ill)


  4. Going for a run after a large meal?

After slight research I came to the conclusion that running after a large meal is a major no no. First off, after eating your body is digesting. This takes a ton of energy! Adding exercise on top of all that work is overwhelming for the body, I was asking it to do too many things. Sorry bod! Love yew. Second, after researching more on GERD I found that my symptoms were identical. It did sort of feel like heartburn but way more intense. Still, three days later, I feel worse after eating. Last, I need to stop eating so fast, seriously.

Have any runner ever experienced this?

Hey, at least it wasn’t my knees this time!

WIAW week #9

23 Mar

Hey guys, sorry about that post yesterday. I originally posted my broc cheddar soup recipe then for some reason it got posted under March 12th. So this soup is awesome… check it out here.


A bowl of home-made granola and a unpictured smoothie.


Oh my, a salad on my blog! Yes, I do eat them occasionally. My friend and I had a salad making party the other night and this was the leftovers. The sammich¬†is an “egg” salad sammich I got from a new local health food store. I was so excited that they made “egg” salad! Actually, all of their salads are vegan. They have a yam potato salad, regular potato salad, tempeh walnut (like faux tuna salad), and lots of other salads I have yet to try!



A lovely meal prepared by my boy. Pasta with a “chicken” patty and garlic bread. Yes, I finished my plate, don’t worry. ūüėČ


Holy cow, that’s my iced car! It was so nice out and then BAM snowy freezing rain just when I thought it was over. Can I move now?¬†ūüė¶

Fruit & Fitness Routines

22 Sep

‘Morning friends ūüėČ

How is everybody today? I hope your week is going well. I am currently blogging from my college campus which is pretty sweet. I hate hauling my laptop around because it weights a ton but hey, I am making great use of my break time. Not only by blogging but by eating a yummy lunch I prepped last night:

Spinach tortilla with avocado, black beans and romaine lettuce inside

Organic fruit salad made by your truly using all fresh fruits from the Flint Farmer’s Market.

Mmmm organic strawberries…. so little and sweet.

This guy is far to wittle and cute to eat! ‚ô•

Nahh, just kidding. I ate him anyway. >:D

Don’t you agree that fresh, organic fruit taste so much better than the¬†store-bought¬†stuff? I could go on and on about why you should buy from farmers but I wont get into it today. All I’m saying is I bought peaches, nectarines, blueberries, raspberries and¬†strawberries yesterday for less than $15 and made a huge bowl of fruit salad that will last me a few days. Not only does the fruit taste better from a farmer’s market but its good to support the farmer’s that grow the produce.

In other news, I am planing out a workout routine to get me back and shape, or just back to being slightly active anyway. I’m getting much too lazy these days. My workout plan is starting to look something like this:

One day a week I will pick one of these activities of the day. I must choose one and use only one per day.

  • Rest day

  • Mild exercise (such as walking)

  • Mild exercise (again)

  • Cardio and arms

  • Cardio and legs

  • Cardio and core

  • Core and arms

Sounds like a pretty good plan for me. I found out that I don’t do so well when I plan things like, “Tuesday = cardio and core ONLY” This makes me not want to go to the gym on Tuesdays! Do you have a workout routine? If so what is it?

I have not tried more ways to eat my coconut butter yet, but I’m really excited to do so. I’m still up for anybody’s ideas!
