Wednesday has become one of my favorite days of the week thanks to WIAW
(and, of course, our lovely host Jenn
This time, I'm showing off Sunday's eats. And so, pancakes were the star of my breakfast.
Those would be Blair's Flourless Oatmeal Cinnamon Protein Pancakes
topped with coconut butter and vanilla spice almond butter
. Well, I did a few things different with the pancakes. The differences being that I used only 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, a chia egg instead of a regular egg (because I had almost exactly a tablespoon of ground chia seeds in need of use), more almond milk, and used only one drop of liquid stevia because the protein powder I used (Terra's Whey Vanilla) was already fairly sweet. The result? Um, wow. I think I have about ten slots in my top pancake list, and lets just say that one of the slots belongs to these pancakes. :P
Enter typical Alex snack (please tell me you know what it is by now... hint: the acronym would be PBFP ;) + typical morning Alex horse ride here.
Lunch was another winner! I mixed pesto with brown rice, microwaved if for one minute, stuffed it into an Ezekiel pita pocket, and broiled if for a few minutes. Try it. You will
love it. Trust me. I ate it a long with some steamed brussel sprouts, half a steamed beet, and some roasted Kabocha (I finally found one and I must say that the first bite = <3)
Mid-afternoon stack = PBFP + dark ginger chocolate (I <3 that stuff!!):
We went out for dinner!
I ordered the hummus with fresh veggies and pita bread. Give me hummus and some kind of dipping agent, and I'm pretty much set for life (as long as you throw in some chocolate and peanut butter, that is).
Sorry for the blur!
Dinner was followed by a visit to this amazing place:
My favorite frozen yogurt place! It's self serve so you can put however much of whichever yogurt flavors and toppings! :D My frozen yogurt included plain tart, fruit sweetened tropical, and peanut butter cup and my toppings were chocolate covered sunflower seeds (best topping ever!), macadamia granola, banana slices, and peanut butter cup pieces. The definition of heaven in a bowl!
The frozen yogurt experience was followed by a nice long walk with my mom. :)
Now I know these are Sunday's eats, and I know that today is Wednesday, but there's something about Tuesday that I want to share. This week is Homecoming week at my school and each day there is a different theme. Well, Tuesday was Tacky Tuesday, and so I ceased the opportunity to show my school spirit. Obviously...
Even though you can't see it in the picture, I was wearing two different earrings - one dangle and one stud. Showing school spirit is fuuuuuuun! :)
Favorite frozen yogurt place? Frozen yogurt or ice cream? I normally have to go with fro-yo on this one because I love the creaminess! But when I get a really good ice cream or gelato, fro-yo comes up second. ;)
