Labor Day Eats

Wasn't feeling so great today, a bit sore but I was able to spend the day baking for my giveaway winners! Finally finished everything and I'm really excited to send them out tomorrow! The only thing is I was planning on making three treats but the recipe I was testing turned into and epic fail so it dwindled down to 2.  I think that they are both good enough to make up for the fail though :)

I had some really good eats today too.  I've been feeling really yucky lately because I've been resorting to more processed quick foods so I'm really making an effort to prepare in advance and get back to my clean diet.  I think I did pretty well today, the only processed thing I ate was the gf english muffin and it was so worth it :)

Breakfast: Oatmeal with ground flaxseed, banana, raisins and cinnamon.

Lunch: GF english muffin with 1/2 avocado (smashed to make it easier to eat) and tomato, pepper and some sea salt...served with some grapes.

Snack: Handful of garlic and herb cashews

Dinner: Roasted chickpeas, roasted cauliflower, and some sesame tofu...I didn't like the monochromatic beigeness of this photo so I peeled a carrot to eat as well.  It was all yummy.

Pretty yummy day today. Hopefully tomorrow will just as good...and I have a feeling it will be :) Hopefully the soreness starts to subside soon too.

I hope you all had a great long weekend!

*Edited to add - I got bored and figured it was time for a facelift...something brighter. I don't know if I like this one a lot but it was definitely time for a change.


  1. I think the lunch makes up for the rest of the beige :) Do red grapes have pits in them?

  2. The lunch was amazing. The grapes were seedless and yummy :)

  3. I know those baked goodies are going to be great.
    Your eats were great, especially your lunch! I've got to clean my diet up too. This weekend has been a lot of processed food for me.

  4. Thanks :) I don't know about you, but my body DEFINITELY tells me when I need to clean it up. I get lethargic and yucky, crave fresh fruit and veggies and am thirsty for water all the time. Taking care of it now :) My mom was nice enough to let me use her car tomorrow since I have to work until 9pm so after I drop her off at work tomorrow I'm gonna run to the farmer's market (she works about 3 minutes away from the Tuesday market!) and see what fresh produce I can scrounge up!

  5. Hey, it's us! The three winners all together under 'Comments'. Can't wait to get mine! This is the second thing I've ever won in my life.

  6. Aww yay! Hopefully it lives up to the expectation!!
