Brekky Salad…again.

I’m not sure what has gotten into me. A salad…for breakfast…again?

I woke up and wanted eggs, looked in the fridge and remembered I had boiled a couple last night. I couldn’t pass them up so what did I do? Make an egg salad brekky.

Iceberg lettuce, 1/2 vine tomato, two hard boiled eggs (one w/yolk, one without), chopped scallions, celery, homemade dressing

The salad dressing consisted of spicy brown mustard, EVOO, red wine vinegar, salt & pepp.

I know, it’s weird to have a salad for breakfast. But it was almost 11am by the time I ate so it was almost like a brunch. Yeah, that’s more acceptable.

I also had prunes and black tea. I swear I am only 22 years old.




Warm Summer Salad

The mangos I bought yesterday excite me! I wanted to try something interesting with them.

So I cut up half of one.

PRETTY! Just slice vertically & horizontally without cutting the peel. Then the cute little squares come off pretty easily…I scraped them off with a spoon.

I looked in the fridge and thought, “Sure! I’ll eat this bad boy with tomatoes and onions.”

So I ended up making a salad: Lettuce, Basil, Tomato, Mango, Onion.

I cut up the mango, cherry tomatoes, and onion and put them in a container in the fridge to marinate in EVOO, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Definitely eatable just like that. I tried it – definitely good.

But I didn’t feel like eating raw onions, so I sauteed everything together for about two minutes. Nice ‘n warm.

Siracha Sauce was obv. necessary. It made it even yummier. The warm mangos definitely tickled my fancy. Tomorrow I think I’ll have the other half nice and fresh with cottage cheese or just by itself. I like it!


For dessert, I went full out.

Balls to the wall, if you will.

Prepare yourselves.

Seriously, you might start drooling.




HA. Just kidding.

I ate three prunes, but let me tell you…they are so good.

Gotta stay regular, people 😉


I also had three more earlier in the day. OH and I also tasted ate at least 1/4th of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars. Yum, nice flava. Except…..they are definitely granola status… minus the “bar.” I can handle it. I’m planning on having some of this delightful granola with my yogurt for breakfast.

I know, I’m sick like that. The second I’m done with one meal…I start dreaming about the next.

That’s what I’m here for though, right!?!?

Polar Express is on soon 😀 YAY! I’d love some holiday cheer up in here.

I Heart Grocery Shopping

Seriously I love it. More than anything!!! I knowww I knowww I have no money. I do own a couple credit cards though… necessities are necessities.

The thing is, I am leaving in just about a week. I really didn’t want to buy more food before leaving but I honestly only have two oranges, a couple lemons and part of a zucchini & cucumber left. OH and a frozen burger.

I cannot live off of that nonsense for more than a day. Therefore, I convinced myself to get minimal needs for the rest of my time here. But then I walked into Woolworths…

Necessary? No. But they were cheap AND in the health food section. They really aren’t bad…gluten & dairy free (not that those are concerns) and about 60 calories for two cookies. Plus they get me into the Christmas spirit! Oh yes they are totallllly necessary.


Uh…yum!? Apple pie, cheesecake and sticky date yogurt!?

I was actually planning on buying yogurt because it is a staple for me and these were on sale! Holla.


Haven’t had soy beans in the longest time and when I saw this combo I nearly drooled thinking about them in my yogurt. Necessity.


I laugh at myself on a daily basis. Here’s one of the reasons. I literally scared the woman next to me as I jumped to grab these when I saw this decent-sized bag was only $1.99! PRUNES…. I know.

I also bought lettuce, two mangos, three apples, two onions, and some garlic.


I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to make granola (bars). They’ll be perfect for travels and I can eat them with my new delicious yogurt. So I went to town.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk to the left. Fruit & Nut to the right.

In this chocolaty/peanut buttery bar we have: oats, peanuts, almonds, cinnamon, pinch of  salt, vanilla extract, chopped dark chocolate, chopped ginger cookie (had to), tahini & honey (as the binder). These are more likely to stay together as actual bars, unlike these:

Yeah I’m thinking this is going to turn into granola. I was too anxious to carefully stir it all together correctly and I don’t think they’ll stick. We’ll see tomorrow, though.

They contain: oats, almonds, prunes, cinnamon, vanilla extract, pinch of salt, tahini & honey (as the binder), chopped gingernut cookie, and a majority of the goji/soy nut/etc. trail mix.

I snacked so hard on all of these delightful treats, therefore I will have a very light din. Maybe cottage cheese and something else. Unconventional, per usual… But I haven’t had cottage cheese in like- 6 months! Craving it.

I didn’t blog at all yesterday (and barely today) because I have been eating the same meals: oatmeal, yogurt, salads, blah blah blah. What can I say – I don’t like being a bore! Also, I will no longer be having oatmeal for brekky (sad face) because I used the rest of my oats on these damn granola bars. No worries, I will demolish them in no time. Probs for breakfast.
