Hello my fellow chocolate chippers! I hope everyone's weekend is off to a fabulous start!
I don't know about you guys, but I've found that lately my appetite has been ravenous! It seems that I can never get filled up - I guess it's that teen appetite! Anywho, here are some yummy foodie pictures from this past week!
Everything is better in a heart-shaped bowl!
Inspired by Brittany
, the delicious salad above consisted of romaine, spinach, tomatoes, avocado, dried plums, cottage cheese, and balsamic vinegar. It was accompanied by a lovely bowl of cinnamon puffins. <3
Over-night oats in a jar! My mix consisted of 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 mashed banana, and 1 cup almond milk. Yum!
That would be Angela's Delicious Vegan Chili
topped with Greek yogurt and chopped onion. Delicious is right! I used chickpeas in mine and it brought the chili to a whole new level!
Spiced couscous with chickpeas, artichokes, sauteed veggies, and raisins. One of the most comforting, delicious bowls ever!
Whole Foods avocado sushi (<3), a package of spinach, steamed and mixed with a bit of aioli, and brown rice crisps with almond milk.
Mmmm... homemade pizza made with whole foods whole grain pizza dough, pesto, broccoli, tomatoes, fresh basil, onion, mushrooms, and mozzarella! Homemade pizza is SO GOOD!! I did have one complaint though. It turned out so small!! I could have eaten two! :D
I finally roasted chickpeas!!! I used Katie's recipe
because she's just so amazing and did half with the spices she recommended (paprika and curry powder) and half with pesto! If there was such a thing as chickpea heaven, these would be everywhere in it! Both flavors were incredible! The pesto ones didn't get as crispy, but their wonderful flavor completely made up for that! :P
While on the topic of Katie, one evening I made a pizzert
of the chocolate chip cookie variety! (And of the un-picturesque variety...)
Topped with Greek yogurt.
With steamed brussels, lima beans, and carrots.
It was a Katie recipe. It included chocolate. Enough said.
Oh and one more Katie recipe! Her fabulous brownie batter pancakes
With peanut butter, coconut butter, and blueberries!
Finally we come to last night's dinner! I normally make my own dinner (or at least tweak my portion of the rest of my family's dinner) because we eat differently. But last night, I didn't. I ate what my mom cooked and didn't tweak it in the slightest! And it. Was. Good. Actually, it was beyond good! My mom makes this incredible blended yellow lentil soup with spiced yogurt.
It is seriously amazing and even more amazing when made with love by my momma! In addition to what's above, I had another half bowl plus avocado and some garlic bread that my mom bought at the store:
Let me tell you something about that garlic bread. It has real chunks of roasted garlic in it. Yes. And it is AMAZING, and I definitely had another slice of it. :P Mom, thank you for the wonderful meal!!
Dinner was followed by dessert. I mixed canned pumpkin with almond milk and tons of cinnamon and then topped the mixture with some roasted peanuts!!
This is one of the examples of my screaming appetite lately. After the soup, avocado, bread, and pumpkin dessert, I went for a walk and then went to bed. As I was going to bed, my stomach started growling!!
What in this post looks best to you?
Do you go through times when no matter what you do you can't get filled??
