Summer Scramble

20 Aug

Sometimes, I have a very hard time deciding on what to make for breakfast. To be honest, I have been late to work a few times because of this! Being the planner I am, you would think I would prepare for this dilemma but I still choose not to. My mind is always changing! Needless to say…

Yesterday was one of those days.

Tofu Summer Scramble

Made with tofu, onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes, spinach, yellow squash, Bragg’s liquid aminos, nutritional yeast, vegan cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.

Leftover veggies always works with tofu scramb!

What do you throw in your tofu scramble?

My favorite veggie to add is mushrooms!

Feature Friday: Being Bitchy

22 Jul

As I’ve said before, I don’t force blog posts when I’m not in the mood. This week has been insane and I just don’t feel like a long, drawn out post!

Wednesday I worked at the day job from 7-12 then headed right to the new market hoping to have a better week than the first. We arrived an hour late but it was all good. We did better than the first week (which really isn’t saying a lot) and had a fun time doing so. After the 13 hour work day, I was exhausted.

Thursday I was scheduled to work 9-5 at the day job, then got asked to stay until 9 at night. Because I am a push over and can never say no, of course I stayed.

Today I am beat, tired, sore, and stressed out.

I’ve had no time to work out, make good food, or post.

I have every right to act like a whinny cranky bitch! 🙂

Breakfast:

Kiwi, bluebs, nanner with PB and coconut, dried cherries, ‘stashies.

Still open for a few guest posts while I’m gone! Comment below or email me if you are interested!

WIAW week 25

13 Jul

Today will be a short and definitely sweet WIAW (details later in this post) but I promise you, with this solo breakfast edition of What I Ate Wednesday this may be just enough.

 Remember in this post how I said my favorite breakfast food is green smoothies and pancakes?

I may have said that I would eventually make green pancakes.

& you thought I was joking.

Green Blueberry Vanilla Pancakes

Serves 2

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (I used life time life basic plant protein)
  • 1 tablespoon spirulina
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoons stevia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 1/4 cup non dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
        1. Add dry ingredients into a medium size mixing bowl.
        2. In a separate bowl, mix together non dairy milk and oil.
        3. Add wet ingredients into dry.
        4. Fold in blueberries.

5.   Put those green pancakes on the griddle and get with it!

 I couldn’t believe how delicious these were!

You must try them.

So today, the boyfriend and I are off to A NEW FARMER’S MARKET! Cities all around Michigan (and probably the rest of the country) are becoming in love with Farmers Markets. One nearby city (about 20 minutes away from us) started a new local FM this year and really needs more vendors. Apparently they have less than 10 vendors and A LOT OF PEOPLE so this could be a great opportunity for us.

& By the way….

Thanks for the support on my last post about the market, it really means a lot to me that you love what I am doing and are still encouraging us to keep going strong!

Have you ever ate green pancakes?

WIAW week 22

22 Jun

The Flu edition! :/

Diet Update:

I think I am going to go back to my normal eating habits ASAP. The last few days I have been getting serious headaches and my face is completely broke out. I know I am under a lot of stress right now, so that has a lot to do with it. These signs are also very common in the first steps of detoxification. But on Tuesday, I woke up feeling horrible. I was achy, tired, sore, and every inch of my body hurt. Flu symptoms? I think so.

Who gets the flu in June? Not to mention right in the middle of exam week???

As much as I love drinking my greens in the morning, it kinda messes up my day. I get hungry earlier, I crave junk food, and it messes with my eating schedule. I love having a big bowl of cinnamon roll oats, banana split oats, or even a breakfast pizzert. I feel like if I get my sweet fix in the morning, my whole day is a lot better.

So there you go, 14 day green smoothie challenge.

Breakfast

Strawberry banana smoothie

Lunch

leftover pizza and veggie broth, yeah diffidently not what I eat on a daily basis.

Snacks

Almonds, strawberries, raspberries, 1 mango, and a homemade snack bar.

Dinner

More broth, and some tea. Oh, and lots of water.

Yeah, sorry for the lame WIAW, being sick does not make me creative or exciting.

BUT I may have mentioned on Twitter that I had some very exciting news to share with you…

 

 

But your gunna have to wait. I want to do a full blown post on it! No sneak previews!

WIAW week 19

1 Jun

Hey kids!

It’s that time of the week again!

 

For me Wednesdays now mean busybusybusy. Today I am going to Zumba for the first time in 2 weeks, then coming home to shower, then going to school to take a math exam… yuck, then going straight to my doctor’s cause I am not 100% better, then going straight to work! Meanwhile I need to be studying for my yucky med terms exam.

So consider this a mini WIAW!

Breakfast

Banana Split Oats

Makes one HUGE serving

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup 1 minute oats
  •  1 scoop Sun Warrior protein powder, I used chocolate! (review coming tomorrow, promise!)
  • 1 T PB
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t maple syrup
  • toppings: banana, chocolate chips, ground pecans, plain coconut yogurt, and of course, a cherry.
  1. Bring milk and water to a boil
  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients (minus the topping obviously) and reduce heat.
  3. Cook for about 4 minutes stirring occasionally.
  4. Scoop into your favorite oatmeal bowl and get crazy with the toppings!

& that’s it for now! 

What did YOU eat today?

Carrot Cake Batter Overnight Oats

10 Apr

Good  m o r n i n g  bloggin’s!

I have some bad news: You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to eat these overnight oats!

I know, I know, you wish I would have posted this last night so you could have it for today, so sorry! 😉

Good news: This makes a super quick breakfast for a Monday morning!

While I was making carrot cake the other day I had quite a bit of leftover supplies. You know, carrots, coconut, pineapple and pecans.

Although I sort of burnt the carrot cake (hey! it’s still yummy on the inside…) these oats made up for it big time.

I don’t really have exact measurements for the ingredients but I’m pretty sure throwing all these stuff together until it looks like this is a good idea.

Instant oats, coconut milk, carrots, coconut, pineapple, chopped pecans and cinnamon.

After the fact I thought about adding maple syrup. That would be good!

Have a lovely Sunday!
