I’ve really been trying to use up what I have in the fridge, before making trips to the grocery store, in order to keep my grocery budget at an almost-reasonable level. It means I’ve been eating tons of fruits and veggies, to make sure they don’t go bad. It also means my meals have sort of been on repeat. The weekend was a little more exciting, with brunch, and a dinner at Burger Bach. But as for my eats during the week, they tend to be pretty monotonous. Does that make me a bad food blogger? Maybe.
Ahh the smoothie I referenced on Friday!
The Elvis Shake
- 1 banana
- 1 cup soymilk/almond milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp peanut flour
- Pinch of xanthan gum (optional)
Peanut flour is sort of like protein powder, so I used that instead of regular protein powder. It’s pretty awesome, and if you haven’t found some yet, check out this post for more info! If you don’t like the taste of protein powder, I highly recommend this! No chalky taste at all!
I’m a huge snacker, so I like to spread out my lunch. I had the rest of my morning shake (what didn’t fit in the glass above, went into the blender bottle) around 11. Then I had the salad and the yogurt around 1, and the apple around 2:30. I’m basically eating all the time.
I’ve been using up my veggies by making massive salads, but I get sick of those pretty quickly. I decided to switch things up, and use up my veggies with some noodles, and whip up some 5-ingredient peanut sauce.
I always forget how easy this meal is. And it’s 10 times better than take out, so I really have no excuse. Broccoli might be my most favorite thing ever. (Ok, second to peanut butter. So broccoli covered in peanut sauce is heaven.) Recycled picture from the original recipe. Even if you don’t have fresh veggies on hand, this works great with frozen!
What I Wore
I don’t generally post outfits, because I’m not, and will never be, a fashion blogger. But I got these red shoes at Target yesterday. Sure, they’re my 4th pair of red shoes, but aren’t they cute? A random woman at work told me I looked like Audrey Hepburn. I’ll take it.
What I Want to Make
I mean, how clever is that?! It’s a silverware-drawer-sorter-thing-turned-jewelry-holder. Since I’m the worst at organizing my jewelry, I think I’m going to mount this on the inside of my closet. (And if you’re not already following me, what are you waiting for?)
