Late Lately

Hi everyone.

As you know from this post, all of my photos have been deleted. I’m trying to bounce back and leave the other posts the way they are (no pictures). But from now on, you’ll see lots and lots of pictures, I promise.

And I’m sure you’ve been wondering what I’ve eaten lately! Here we go!

Pancakes for breakfast. Made early, early in the morning with berries and banana. I’ll make a new “healthy pancake substitution” post, because the last one got zapped of all the photos. 😥 Simply ze best.

Topped with the usual – the best honey Greek yogurt, cha-cha-cha-chia seeds, and unsweetened shredded coconut.

Shh-meared generously with nut butter – here we have sunflower (I just typed snowflower, I have no idea why!) and peanut.

Little bit of maple syrup for dippage. So good!

I had to go to a first-aid recertification on this day, so I packed my lunch up to go. Leftover pancakes from breakfast, with almond butter smeared inside. Almond butter pancake sandwiches are to die for! Also had an orange and some peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joe’s. They’re all natural, and I love how crunchy + flavourful they are. You can also see my water, phone, and tissues in here!

Snacktime – fruity yogurt bowl with berries and honey-roasted pecans. I clearly can’t stop sprinkling chia on anything with berries or yogurt.

Mon souper: beef and broccoli vegetable stir-fry. Yum! Sprinkled with tons of toasted sesame.

Notice how my mom always goes above and beyond! Beef + broccoli? Nah – she’s all for carrots, mushrooms, onions, and zucchini.

Served on the best fluffy white rice. Here’s Mom photographing my bowl!

I had seconds, of course. :mrgreen:

And maybe thirds…

Another day, another dinner. Chicken broth with Chinese noodles, a fried egg (it’s hiding under the noodles!), spinach, and sauteed scallions. There might be some bok choy in here, too. Unfortunately Chinese noodle soup just isn’t my favourite. This was not a very good dinner.

Remember that cranberry orange bread/cake I told you about? Voila!

DSCN7024 DSCN7022

I actually thought it was a little too sweet and orange-y. I also added a bit too many dried cranberries. It was tasty, but I was disappointed nonetheless. I think it’s because my expectations were set too high after the muffins from Matchsticks blew my socks off.

Yummy banana baked oats for breakfast another day! Comment below if you’re interested in a recipe. It’s one that I made up myself, and I’ve never looked back. So creamy, decadent, and a 100% healthy real-food breakfast.

I love baked oats to death. After half was in my tummy, I added a big scoop of honey Greek yogurt and some almond cookie crumbles. Yeah, I went there. Cookie crumbles on oatmeal.

Oh, and let’s not forget that cute little blob of peanut butter.

Salad for lunch!

The usual fixings – goat cheese, berries, nuts. Homemade balsamic dressing to toss the mess in.

All stacked up!

Snack – more yogurt with berries and chia. I told you, I HAVE to sprinkle chia on everything sweet!

Dinner here is organic portobello mushroom ravioli (from Costco) and steamed broccoli. Sprinkled with a little parmesan, just to make the photos extra pretty. This dinner was plain and simple, but totally satisfying. The black pepper adds a ton with zero effort. Easy + quickie.

The filling in this ravioli is killer. Creamy, flavourful, chewy from the mushrooms. 5 stars from me.

Oh, how I’ve missed steamed broccoli! It almost becomes sweet? I just tossed a couple big trees into the ravioli pot in the last few minutes of cooking, and they came out perfectly tender and soft. I actually like mushy broccoli – shhhh, don’t tell anyone!

That’s it for now. I’m actually getting excited to post again. 🙂

Guess what? FARMER’S MARKET TOMORROW! I am so excited. Normal teens are probably sleeping after a night of concerts/movies/partying – but I’m up extra early to make oatmeal and scour the market for fresh, local produce.

Stay tuned for my next post. It’s gonna be a good one. Bye for now!

  1. […] Like I mentioned on this post, Mom bought dungeness crab ravioli. Here, I topped it with crumbled goat cheese and black pepper. Served on a bed of baby spinach. This was a fun alternative to having a side salad! The ravioli were okay. They weren’t my faves – I prefer the spinach-ricotta ravioli from Costco, or even the portobello mushroom ravioli. […]
