What I Ate Wednesday 188

So a few posts ago I mentioned I had two moves to tackle. Aside from my token new recipe happy dance, my dance moves haven't been getting much use around here as of latley, so clearly we're talking about the other type of moving! My Wordpress move was only the beginning! With help from the besties, I packed up the chickpea and moved back to Florida! FLORIDAAAAA! Cue streamers and sunshine state shaped confetti! Wait! Don't do that. Confetti should never be shaped like peninsulas; … [Read more...]

Fresh Fruit: Watermelon, Honeydew, Cantaloupe, Oranges, and Grapes

HELLO WORDPRESS! Things are going to be beyond wonky over here for the next few days so if you spot anything crazy, I won't be insulted in the least if you give me a heads up! In fact, I appreciate it! I'm navigating through this new dashboard like a drunk monkey so this week should be EXTRA fun! "There is so much room for activities!" The former graphic designer in me is a bit twitchy and wants to play with every button on this website until I know how it works and how I can manipulate it. … [Read more...]

Leftovers Schmeftorvers: What I Ate Wednesday #186

What I Ate Wednesday

Today was seriously the day of leftovers! I tend to make my recipes over and over again [partially for quality assurance and partially because I'm butt-crazy in love with them!] so I raided my freezer for the soup and veggie burgers and my fridge for the yummy bean dip that I can't seem to stop spreading on everything in sight! Breakfast: Swiss Muesli with Coconut Almond Milk Snack: The Laughing Cow white cheddar wedges with fresh veggies. Snack: Avocado White Bean Dip with multigrain … [Read more...]

Homemade Mexican Veggie Burgers

It's Tuesday night and I just discovered the gem that is chew-able Melatonin and well, I'll probably pass out halfway through writing this post. Sleep is fun. AND SO IS FOOD! Happy What I Ate Wednesday! I was craving eggs and somehow wound up making potato salad for breakfast. I can't even begin to try to justify that one, but it was good! Lunch was half a frozen thin crust additive-free pepperoni pizza [I love the Newman's Own ones] topped with arugula, avocado, and red pepper … [Read more...]

What I Ate Wednesday #184

My eats are all over the place this WIAW thanks to an impromptu trip to visit a friend and her ridiculously cute baby boy down near Wilmington. I tried to snap as many photos of our eating endeavors as I could but it's hard to remember to take photos of a dreamy bowl of hummus when you're three shots deep during a torrential thunderstorm. From what I remember, the hummus was spectacular. As was the tequila.Here are a few randoms from last week:Chipotle: shown in a lovely bowl of deliciousness … [Read more...]

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Arugula and Feta + WIAW #183

Savory Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Feta and Arugula

I decided to switch things up and go backwards today, mainly because my dinner was a tad on the epic side. It seems a bit overzealous to call something that is so ridiculously simple epic, but when it comes to flavor, there's no other word to describe it. Well other than delicious. And quick. And easy. And oddly enough chickpea approved. And with that, we commence bombardment via sweet potato: They couldn't be easier. Bake or nuke a sweet potato to fluffy perfection, pinch the ends … [Read more...]

It's WEDNESDAY!? You're kidding right? How on earth did that happen!? I've had a plateful of crazy lately, some of which is awesome and I'm so excited to update you on it as soon as I can get my bearings, and some of it is downright terrible and I hate it and, well, such is life. I don't mean to be cryptic [though clearly I'm awesome at it!] but I'm trying to soak up my last glorious minutes of sweet, sunny, hotter-than-hades Florida and I love ya, but um... Florida! I've missed this state … [Read more...]
