So, if you didn’t know this, I’m pretty into all things other-worldly. Last week, I went to a psychic. Maybe that’s not your thing, and that’s totally fine, but I have to say it was so much fun.
Among the several things I learned during my time with the psychic: I should apply to work for Amazon and Google, I’m going to move twice in my life, I’m single because I don’t do anything to look for guys, and I’m going to have two sons in a few years (I have slowly come to terms with the fact that I’m apparently a boy mom now). You might think I’m crazy for semi-believing her, but she also said some more personal family things that were really spot-on. It was far out.
One thing I didn’t talk to the psychic about? What I should eat! Where’s the fun in knowing what you’re going to have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner when you can just follow your cravings? The past two weeks were filled with some really yummy meals. Most of them stemmed from me listening to what my body was telling me to eat, which I’ve been trying to do more often. It’s been interesting. One such meal was this: French toast! For lunch, no less. It was totally one of those “I need French toast right now, so I’m definitely going to make French toast right now” kind of things.
I’m planning on featuring this salad on the blog within the next few weeks. I’ve made it several times now and am convinced it is the ultimate craving buster. As a little teaser, I’ll say that it has a really delicious and healthy roasted garlic dressing.
I recently visited the Amazing Café with Cassie for a vegan, raw dinner. We’ve been meaning to try this little spot since it opened almost half a year ago, and it truly delivered. We both had raw spaghetti bolognese made with zucchini noodles. I think there were cashew crumbles for the ‘meat.’ It was … amazing. Pun intended.
Annnnnnd this has been my go-to nighttime snack. Frozen mango with chocolate chips, almost nightly. I dunno what it is but the texture of mango is so addictive to me. It’s so smooth and almost creamy!
Trail mix during extra hours at work for the win.
Dad’s birthday dinner! I guess I should wish him a happy belated birthday on the blog. Since it was over a weekend, I didn’t post that day. We celebrated with kebabs, corn and sweet potatoes. YUM. Summer corn is really the best. So sweet, minus the fact that it gets stuck in your teeth.
Obviously we had birthday cake, too. We have a tradition of celebrating with immediate family with a Pepperidge Farm frozen cake. I love how light and airy these cakes are.
Beloved oatmeal for a lot of breakfasts. Always coconut on top.
Honey mustard chicken that will be showing up on the blog soon, too. I don’t think I have enough broccoli, do you?
Sometimes a simple lunch satisfies. & cantaloupe!! Also wonderful in the summer. Cantaloupe cause I just got married (lol.).
This was my first attempt at curry. I followed this recipe! It was simple and tasty, but it could have been spicier.
A really simple quinoa and spinach mix topped with two fried eggs. More cantaloupe.
This past Friday night I met up with Erin and Cassie at our favorite spot, Shady Grove. I branched out slightly and tried the summer salad. Shrimp, mango salsa, goat cheese, and dried cranberries over greens. We all shared a bottle of wine. It was great to catch up!
Last night’s dinner was so satisfying! I had a baked potato, cauliflower, and grilled chicken. It was such a quick meal to cook, but I really loved it. I put some olive oil on the potato, and it gave it just the right amount of flavor.
This week, I’m taking a designated blogging break, but I have some great guest posts lined up for you. Keep checking back all week for those! Tomorrow I have my own recipe coming at ya, but after that, the guest posts begin.
