Kidlets!! It’s Wednesday already!! What helped to make my day fantastic and simply fly by, you ask?
Well, aside from a busy, busy day at work and some lovin’ from the pony this A.M., there were some fun and fantastic new food, too 🙂
Like this goji granola that I picked up from the co-op the other day.
I did have an idea as to how it should be enjoyed, however.
- almost 1/2 c. quick oats
- 1 T. chia seeds
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- generous pinch of cinnamon
- trail power
And last night, I added in some blueberries and mushed them up a bit, too.
- 1/2 sliced banana (nuked)
- blueberries (nuked)
- wheat germ
- honey roasted peanuts
- drizzle of honey
And of course, iced coffee is always fantastic.
I made up for Monday with a fantastic sammie today. Basically, because I am forever in love with broccoli and hummus sammie’s ever since I first savored one. This was simply a hardboiled egg, roasted broccoli, garlic hummus, and feta – pannini’d at work and enjoyed in the sunshine.
I’ve carried over my grazing tendencies at home to work – and have been having less and less of a structured lunch and snacks. With this lunch, though, I enjoyed a fantastic fruit salad of sorts.
Especially because, just a short while earlier, I enjoyed a lovely granny smith apple.
Except, Amanda, I think you’re rubbing off on me. All I could keep thinking while eating this was how good it would be with caramel pudding. Alas…
Also fantastic are these chunks of energy. (I think that’s an adorable name, too, Elaine!) I SO need to replicate these myself.
I mean – after just one of these puppies I was running marathons around the lab like I fiesty five year old, and even ran to the deli to get bread on my break!!
And we all know how this bread is always fantastic. Except…apparently they get dropped in a bag of flour now, instead of wheat bran. Mildly disappointing, but isn’t hindering me from enjoying it!
It was made with my name on it. Special order. Jealous?
And who doesn’t love clearance nuts? Marcona almonds, in particular.
I’m just gonna deal.
And now that I’m thinking about it – you’d all find it comical how much I despised broccoli (and veggies in general) as a child. I’m pretty sure broccoli is now my favorite veggie. And beans – I don’t think I cared for beans, either.
But I digress.
The only thing rivaling the mix of goat cheese, roasted broc, hummus, and seitan is this combo of roasted broc, feta, hummus, and kidney beans. With marcona almonds on top. And a bread wedge. (or a flour wedge…it was the heel slice and there was a loot of flour…)
What helped to make your day fantastic?
