buddha bowl

After a late night watching the LOST finale, I needed an energizing smoothie to get me through the Monday blues.  I ate this along with a homemade Tropical granola bar.  Sometimes the smoothie holds me over, sometimes it doesn’t!

I kept it really simple today:

  • 1 cup plain Stonyfield yogurt
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 3 tbsp vanilla spice hemp protein powder

For lunch, I assembled a leftovers salad, which came out pretty good.

Romaine lettuce, leftover greek salad fixings (tomato, cucumber, pepper, tabbouleh and hummus), leftover greens from Friday night (fiddleheads, green beans and broccoli) and marcona almonds.

It all mixed well together.  Along with a Vanilla greek yogurt, chocolate granola and a super ripe and juicy mango.

Before lunch I snacked on more almonds, cheese and crackers.  I didn’t have time to eat lunch until almost 4 o’clock, so I got snacky around lunchtime.  A late lunch really screws up dinner, so I didn’t end up eating until after 9pm!

Luckily, I was defrosting some Bean Chili!

It’s a leftovers week in our house, so be prepared to see leftovers all sorts of ways!  I have lots of lettuce and frozen soups to use up to free up some freezer space.

Served in a Buddha Bowl!

The Buddha Bowl was designed by Flavour Design Studio’s and was made to rest in the palm of your hand for a more cozy eating experience.  It fits right into your hand.  I don’t always eat keeping the bowl in my hand, but it allows you to do so if you want. Personally, I just like the shape and design of the bowl!

It’s cute, modern and fun!  And, it adds a little flair to my boring dish collection.

Mmmm…this chili tastes more like a stew once defrosted.  Served with some mexican cheese and Dr. Krackers Flatbread.

Come back tomorrow and find our how to open and enjoy a coconut!
