time to organize

My eats were not very exciting today!  I guess this usually happens towards the end of the week when the veggies are running low, and when work is completely crazy.  Anyways, I’ll whiz through my eats for the day and get to the more exciting stuff.

I started the day with a Banana Nut Vitatop with a smear of chocolate peanut butter.

But, that did not cut it.  So, I whipped up a smoothie.

I started with the base of Kristen’s Cherry Chocolate Bomb Smoothie, but changed it up a bit since I didn’t have all of the ingredients.  Here is what I came up with:

  • 1.25 cups water
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 3 tbsp hemp protein
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

This was not the best smoothie I have every had.  I only drank about 1/2 because I just wasn’t feeling it.  This was my first time using chia seeds in a smoothie.  It was great!  It made the smoothie extra thick, so I will definitely be using them again.

Oh well, on to lunch.

I made a salad to bring to work.  I started with baby romaine lettuce and added lots of goodies: 1 dried pluot, 3 dried figs, 1/4 cup frozen pomegranates (thawed), sliced almonds and pear infused vinegar.

This was an awesome mix!  I had some plantain chips on the side.

Surprisingly, great combo!

Later on, I snacked on a dried peach and a Pomegranate Chobani!

Dinner was all about using up some stuff in our fridge before the weekend.  Brant had salad and eggs, while I had a salad with an open faced sandwich!

I kept my salad simple with cucumbers, dried cranberries and sliced almonds.  The sandwich was a toasted sandwich thin with a spread of spinach & artichoke hummus and topped with a roasted red pepper and eggplant “bacon”!

After dinner, I got to organizing our kitchen cabinets.  They have been driving me crazy for awhile, so tonight was the night it needed to be done.

Brant snapped a photo of me in action.  You can kind of tell the disastrous state of the open cabinets!

We had stacks of nut butter and bulk items all over the place!  Many of them were in glass jars already, but I got the mason jar idea from Ryan.  I had some in the basement and purchased another case.  I love this idea.  You can see the contents of each item and how much you have.  Plus, I love shopping in the bulk foods aisle!

All 3 cabinets are organized now.  I moved food to the bottoms so that we can actually reach it without standing on the step-stool!

Cereals, crackers, bulk food items (grains, nuts, unsweetened dried fruit).

Spices, snacks and nut butters!

Baking supplies, glass tupperware, water bottles and random stuff.

I love it!  Now, let’s just hope I remember where everything is tomorrow morning. 🙂
