that this is my 300 th post!!! I can't believe you all haven't gotten bored of me yet ;) My 1-year Bloggiversary is also coming up next month...what are you getting me?! Before I get on with today's eats, I have to share this amazing snack I had last night. I made my normal Carob- Kamut Cereal bowl (love this combo!) but this time I added a slice of the Blueberry Breakfast Cake I made theother day. *swoons* It was magical.
At first I thought I should do something special for my 300 th post. But then I realized...what better way to celebrate than with my favorite foods?! Pumpkin Oats was the first thing that came to mind.
-1/2 cup oats + 1/2 cup almond milk + 1/2 cup water
I always forget how much I love flax in my oatmeal. I must remember to add it more often!
While cleaning I started to get hungry so I had an apple to tide me over until lunch.
Then I made this spectacular meal. Falafel from SBitK along with 1/4 an avocado on a homemade GF wrap. Baby carrots on the side of course. The wrap was inspired byPolly'srecipe but I used 1/4 cup GF AP flour, 1/8 tsp baking powder, and 3 tbsp hot water. Then I poured the liquid into a cast iron pan and let it cook for about 1 minute on each side. It wasn't exactly like a wrap (more like a crepe) but still delicious! I also had 2 prunes for a little sweetness. While waiting for my lunch to cook I decided to make some Black Bean + PumpkinHummus (since the FP was already out). I based it off ofthis recipeand used:
-1 can chickpeas
-1/2 cup black beans
-2 cloves garlic
-dash paprika and black pepper
-2 tbsp pumpkin
-1 tsp tamari
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-2 tbsp BBQ sauce
-a couple dashes hot sauce
It turned out fantastic! Perfect for salads since the hummus and BBQ are already mixed together. It also made a lot so it will last me a long time...err, I mean less than a week =) Plus it was way cheaper to make than buying it from the store.
Since I was planning on making a salad for dinner, I didn't make a green smoothie. Instead I had this lovely PinkBerry Smoothie (inspired by the lovelyPolly). I used...
It was LUSCIOUS! Oh my gosh, I was in heaven! It took all my willpower to not chug this is 30 seconds.
Believe it or not, the last 3 batches of B-Nut Fries have been from one squash. I bought three ginormous squash when I was at the store and only just got through one of them! I tried mixing the curry powder into the ketchup asMiss Ruby Redsuggested and it was tassssty.
I also had a small Salad so I could try out my new hummus.
-avocado (twice in one day?!)
After I took this picture I realized something was missing...so I crumbled pretzels on top and smothered it with BBQ sauce. haha YUM.
About today: I am so proud of myself. As you may have noticed...I ate 1/2 an avocado in one day. This is the first time in ages I've even touched a whole one. Usually I go for the pre -portioned guacamole but not this time. Healthy Fats consumed today = 4! Flax, AB, PB, and Avocado. Shelby 1, ED 0. Sucka!
