chopped veggie salad

It was so hard to wake up this morning!!  My eyes felt like they were glued shut!

Luckily, I had another juice to enjoy from Organic Avenue.

Veggie Vibe!

The cucumber, lemon and parsley flavors really stood out.  It definitely was not my favorite juice, but it was good.  And, made me feel energized!

Along with my juice, I snacked on 2 slices of Carrot Raisin Manna Bread.

Look at those raisins!!

With a think spread of peanut butter and Crofter’s cherry jam.

I loved this breakfast!

Lunch was interesting because we were down to minimal fresh food in the fridge!  We pick up our CSA tonight, so we were completely out of fruits and vegetables except for 2 small pickling cucumbers.

I sliced them up and ate them with lemon hummus and a mix of raw flax and rice crackers.

I also had a honey greek yogurt with raw granola and freeze dried strawberries and blueberries.

How’s that for getting fruit into my lunch?! 🙂

On the way to pick up our CSA, I found something I had been searching for – the new Larabar flavors!!!

I dug right into the Chocolate Chip Brownie.

YUMMMMMMMMMMY!!!!!!!!!

It definitely tastes like a brownie and has chunks of chocolate in every bite.  It was so good!

Dinner was thrown together pretty quickly, but at least we had fresh veggies!

While Brant was getting my veggie burger and his eggs together, I made up a chopped salad similar to the one we had at Emily’s last night.

Green pepper, cucumber, spring onion, heirloom cherry tomatoes and carrots chopped up and mixed with honey balsamic, olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh thyme.  It came out great.

And, a veggie burger on a whole wheat bun with ketchup and a pickle.

I really like making salad’s out of fresh chopped veggies.  You don’t need any lettuce because everything is so fresh.  This would be great to bring to a BBQ or the beach because you don’t have to worry about lettuce wilting.  Make it the night before to let the flavors marinate throughout.

manic monday

Just another Manic Monday!

I wanted to start Monday off on the right foot today, so I opened up my Blueberry Spirulina Smoothie that I picked up at Organic Avenue in the city.

The smoothie contained some delicious and healthy ingredients.

The smoothie was really good and I just love the fun glass bottles they come in.

Along with my smoothie, I toasted up 2 slices of Cinnamon Date Manna Bread that the company sent me to review (full post at a later date).

Spread thinly with Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter, this breakfast was awesome!

Manna Bread is so doughy and cake-like, I personally love it!  I could really taste the cinnamon in this flavor.

For lunch, I feasted on a salad that I brought home from NYC.  I stopped at Bonobos, a Vegetarian restaurant, before leaving yesterday to pick something up.

I picked up the Nori Rolls which are a mix of nuts and veggies rolled in Nori and a side salad with agave mustard viniagrette.

They were pretty good, but not awesome!  I also had a chocolate yogurt, which was awesome!

Mid-afternoon, I snacked on a Maple Pecan Boomi Bar.

This was by far my favorite flavor and I think it was because of the maple.  I love maple syrup! 🙂

Dinner was made for us by the wonderful Emily & Shawn!

Pappardelle with Spiced Butter from 101cookbooks

The pasta was delicious!  The spices, herbs and pinenuts were awesome.

Chopped Veggie Salad

A super delicious salad with tomato, cucumber, pepper, red onion, avocado and more!

Thanks for a delicous dinner, guys!
