Happy Hump day! I'm playing catch up today on blogging, since I've been so busy the past few days. I'll start off with my green smoothie that I had this morning. The past two mornings I just had regular fruit smoothies with a scoop of Amazing Grass added in, since I was out of greens. I had to run by the grocery store yesterday after work to get my mom some groceries, so I grabbed a few things for my self and kale just happened to be one of those things. What kind of greens do you prefer in your smoothies? I've been swapping back and forth between kale and spinach, and I'm leaning towards kale as being my fav. This was one of my typical green smoothies with water, kale, a date, a small frozen banana, a dash of cinnamon and ginger, frozen mango chunks, and hemp seeds.....total yumminess!
We ran some errands over the weekend and I came across this great little snack. These little granola clusters didn't last long at all. Tony and I scarfed them down....very good. I've got to go get some more of these! The brand is Mrs Mays. Have you ever tried any of these snacks? I hope they have a bigger variety when I go back to get more!
Sunday night I made HH's Mexican Cabbage. I had brown rice to go with it. Very..very good! The recipe just happens to be on her website. You can find it here.
For lunch one day I had a humms and tomato sammy with a side of baby carrots for some crunch. :o)
Monday night we had spaghetti and a salad. I put some Dulse Flakes on my salad this time. I bought some when I went to Whole Foods a while back and forgot about them. I love this little seaweed! It's a perfect addition to a salad.
Monday night I made some health bars. I'm tweaking my moms recipe. This has always been my all time favorite thing that she made for me. I would request these for my birthday over chocolate cake (shocker). I haven't gotten the recipe where I want it yet, but when it gets there, I'll be sharing the recipe with you.
For lunch today I had a Peanut Sesame Noodle Bowl. These were on sale yesterday at Kroger, so I picked up 3 different kinds. This is my first one to try and OMG...delish! Don't laugh but this is actually the first Peanut Sesame anything to try. I've been meaning to make my own, but just haven't done it yet. After having this, I can't wait to make my own.
Here's a picture of it all made up.....yum! Talk about full...I couldn't even eat it all.
For a morning snack this morning I had a Gala apple with Almond butter spread on it with a few cranberries sprinkled on top. It's not the Honey Crisp apples that Sarah's been flaunting around, but I guess they'll have to work. :o) I'm so jealous of her Honey Crisp apples. Tony broke the bad news to me last night that we don't have them where I live....booooo Gala's are our favorite though...they are sweet and crispy too....just how Sarah describes the Honey Crisp.
