Quick post! I’ve got to get to bed…We’re going snowboarding tomorrow [with Chris’s friend that’s in town from NC] and I can’t fall asleep on the lift like last week!
SIAB day #2! This one was just okay, but still left me feeling awake + energized! Yesterday’s bowl was much tastier.
In the mix:
- 1/3c sweet potato puree [texture good, taste not so much]
- 2c ice
- Amazing Grass Green SuperFood [from the samples they sent]
- 4oz container of Oikos plain
- 2-3c spinach
- 1/2 pack vanilla rice protein powder
- 1T chia seeds
- 3/4t cinnamon
- 1/4t ginger
- 1/4t nutmeg
- 1/2c rice milk
- 1/2 banana
Toppings [were awesome!]: BRM Muesli, little granola, and this bagged trail mix I picked up at WF [cran/almond/dk choc] mmmm Crunchy!
With my nerdy science mug o’ joe!
I enjoyed it but was kinda wishing I had a hot bowl of oats! I was extra chilly this AM. Ohhh and a new placemat, kind of. Chris’s schoolwork :)
Lunch was DEElicious. I had a huge plate of mixed baby greens, with a large slice of the “Lentil Pie” heated up and broken on top, along with pepitas, cranberries + walnuts. SO good. The slight sweetness from the loaf went really well with the salad. YUM.
Dressing: apple cider vin + balsamic + olive oil + s/p
Aaaand then….maaaaybe thee.best.snack.ever. Kath had my drooling today from all her coconut product talk. So I had to whip out my jars that Artisana sent me awhile back! :) Loooove their products.
Whole wheat toast + fresh ground pnut butter + about 1tsp warmed Cacao Bliss + unsweetened coconut shavings
Words can’t even describe! The Cacao Bliss is an amazing blend of cacao + coconut and with a little bit of sweetness. It tasted amazing with the pnut butter. mmmm The only thing that could be better is making it a sandwich and adding banana!!! [hmmm breakfast tomorrow? we shall see]
“These are a few of my favorite things….” [I know you know that song] Thanks for all of my awesomely delicious samples!!!
I am having the hardest time deciding what large container of wheat grass mix to buy. Do I get the chocolate..this plain one or just the plain old wheat grass? I still have other to try too! I found a really yummy treat is mixing the chocolate GreenSuperFood with chocolate milk [whichever kind of milk you drink].
Lots to do today…needed some afternoon tea. I’m trying to like tea more…this one is pretty tasty. Natalie got it for me for xmas. The flavor is Cacao Goji Berry and it tastes just like you would expect! I added a little coconut creamer…mmmm I need a tea with robust flavor.
Since we had company coming I was in a hurry all day. I had job applying things to do in the morning, then cleaning, laundry, yard work, huge kitchen mess, etc. I was at it all day long! Tonight was the first night in a very long time that dinner came partially from the freezer. However, I think this was acceptable.
Sunshine Garden Herb veggie burger. I have tried Morningstar and whatever the other brand is and they don’t compare to this one.
Whole wheat slice + pan cooked “burger” + parm + ketchup loooove + cucs with salt
They were on sale 2 for $6 and I had a $1 off coupon. I bought Garden Herb + Falafel [which Chris had tonight].
I LOVE that they are soy free. I hate when products are loaded with processed soy! You can find out why in my FAQ page!
Would you take a look at their ingredient list!?
- organic cooked brown rice
- organic ground raw sunflower seeds
- organic carrots
- organic herbs + sea salt
Morningstar’s ingredient list:

This list is just way too long for my liking…..anyway, SO so so glad I found Sunshine Burgers for when I’m in a dinner pinch!
Cereal + 1/2 banana + cranberries
Another 2 of my favorite products! I really like the Pacific brand almond milk because it contains no soy lecithin, unlike “Almond Breeze” brand. They are very similar but I prefer Pacific’s.
Bananas in cereal are so tasty…I had forgotten!
Goooodnight!!! [but gooodmorning to YOU!]
Not sure I’m capable of a “quick” post…woooooops [don’t forget to check out last night’s post on Vibram 5 Fingers!!!]
