Just in case you missed my superimportantannoucement on Monday… I’m still playing with my new camera!

My friend Taylor took me out on Monday for a little photo adventures and just an hour with her was SO helpful! (She does weddings and such if anyone in RVA is looking!)

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think I knew what I was doing. (Thank you for the pic, Taylor!)

So this was a fun, and challenging post, since I’m still trying to learn my way around my camera. Obviously, I couldn’t snap a picture at work with my camera, so that was my exception in this post.


Simple bowl of Chobani 0% with vanilla stevia, frozen blueberries, and Udi’s cranberry granola.


Since my barley stew made a bunch of servings, and I’m the only one eating it, I had leftovers at work. I took this picture earlier, obviously (since I get enough strange looks from my co-workers for bringing in things like kale chips and kombucha tea. I don’t need to add a giant camera into the mix.)

I also grabbed some veggies from the salad bar at work, and topped it with some Trader Joe’s Peppercorn Ranch, which I brought from home. I’m normally not a fan of salad dressings (they usually just taste kind of slimy to me) but this dressing is light and delicious.

Afternoon snack:

As soon as I got home from work, I was starving. So I grabbed a slice of homemade wheat bread, and topped it with a smear of almond butter. This bread is really dense, and since it’s made with whole wheat flour and whole grain oats, it’s fiber packed as well! I’ll try to remember to post the recipe soon.


My friend Kate and I went to Xtra’s Cafe in Carytown, specifically for 1/2 off wine night. (I normally go on Wednesdays… for $10 bottles of champagne, but… I’m flexible.) Sadly, I brought my camera, and forgot my memory card… so no photo from there. But you know what white wine looks like, right?

When I finally got home, I wasn’t that hungry, but I knew I needed to eat something, so I whipped up a simple smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 handful ice cubes
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • stevia to taste
Serve it in a jar of almost empty peanut butter, and you get perfect nut butter distribution.
I can hear you judging. “Skippy? Really? Where is your $19 jar of raw, organic, whole foods, nut butter with fair trade flax seeds?” Not here. Sorry. Sometimes I get Skippy because they carry it at Target, and it’s cheap. Yep. Sorry I’m not sorry.

Do you try to sneak iphone pictures of your food around your co-workers? Do you buy fancy nut butter, or the cheap stuff?
