Lately

June 15, 2013

I’m really not sure when these meals begin or end! I try to contain them all in one week, but my Lately folder is piling up with all kinds of meals from before and after the beach : ) So let’s see what’s been eatin’ on:

Breakfasts

Cheerios with yogurt over a pile of berries. It was strawberry crazy over here! Wild Friends chocolate coconut on top. Looks like a little granola crumble too!

One morning I had the top of a Dakota bun slathered in sunbutter with an egg and tons of local fresh strawberries. I want to eat this again!

Here was a delicious slice of Cville Crunch French toast topped with banana, berries and chia seeds. A bit of peanut butter on the side.

Dough boy smoothies are back. This one was a raspberry blast! It was the same recipe as the strawberry banana but with raspberries instead. Kamut puffs, extra rasp. and Wild Friends on top.

Lastly, a bowl of yogurt with Kamut puffs (which Mazen eats) with lots of berries and more Wild Friends. You can tell I ate a lot of the same things this week : ) Also that most of the days were rainy!

Lunches

So many salads from our garden, which is abundantly producing greens at the moment.

Egg-celent salad of greens from our garden, bleu cheese, salt, olive oil, honey, 2 eggs, avocado and cherries. Fabulous!

Here’s a No Bull Burger over lettuce with local sheep’s milk cheese, hummus, radish…

And a bowl full of cherries

More of the same! Love having bleu cheese in the house again.

This salad was topped with avocado, Caromont Farm goat feta (!), leftover tofu and sweet potatoes and a Spinach Feta roll

With a peach on the side

Tofu Pesto salad from Great Harvest! I’m obsessed with our house balsamic dressing!

Dinners

For some reason I only have one dinner to share. Probably because I put some them into the weekend post!

Here’s tofu, sweet potatoes and asparagus, all roasted in the oven.

And to end on a fun note…Mazen’s favorite meal this week was salmon, avocado and broccoli bits

And his favorite activity is pulling up on the windowsill in his room. We look at the garden morning, noon and night. I went outside to surprise him before bed!

The salad with eggs on top looks like it has googly eyes, I love it! I wonder if you could get kids to eat it if you told them that, or if that would just freak’em out.

Kath, speaking of these eggs with uncooked yolks, do you ever worry about getting salmonella? My son got it when he was two from what I thought was a well-scrambled egg, but I obviously hadn’t cooked it enough even then. It was a terrifying experience that I never want to repeat. So I never give our kids uncooked yolks–and I don’t eat them, either. Salmonella can put you in the hospital and even kill you, so I was wondering–not to be a downer–why don’t you cook your eggs all the way through? And why is it that our parents’ eggs didn’t need to be thoroughly cooked? Why is it that eggs have only become “dangerous” in the last generation? Is it mass production? Do we have less a chance of getting salmonella from our own hens’ eggs–or a local farmer’s eggs? Since you’re a nutritionist, have you looked into this whole cooked egg vs. uncooked egg subject? I know it’s a thorny issue for many. Thanks for listening.

Seems like you got very unlucky. People eat runny yolks and even raw eggs all around the world and rarely get salmonella.

I never thought to put sunny side up eggs on salad.. I usually go for a hardboiled egg.. I need to try this!

You always make the best looking salads! delicious!

We’ve been doing a TON of salads and sweet pototatos too! We finally live in an area again that has “specialty stores” like Whole Foods;) We had an amazing gouda and mushroom burger from there last night.

Question: I see your greens in your salad spinner. Do you dress it in the spinner as well, or just rinse? I recently picked up one for our house so we can buy our greens in bulk and prep it ourselves, but I’ve never dressed inside the spinner and don’t know if people do that?

12 KathEats June 15, 2013 at 1:44 pm

I don’t… Just rinse. The dressing might fall through!? But sometimes I pour the greens into the bottom bowl to toss if I have a big salad.

I love roasting sweet potatoes and can’t wait to pick up some cherries at the farmer’s market…which actually was this morning and I forgot! Oops :| !!!

It’s my hubby’s bday so I’ve been in a whirlwind getting everything prepared for him when he gets home from work, but sad that I missed the market now! lol

Yum to all your fresh just-picked garden greens, esp. drooling over your roasted tofu, asparagus and sweet tater dinner! I love asparagus this time of year – such a short season in the Midwest. Strawberries are pretty high on my favorite food list this month too.

And, a happy weekend to you, Matt and Mazen :)

Delicious looking meals as usual :) My favorites are always your breakfasts! Probably because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day .. P.S. how do you get your eggs to look so perfect??

18 Jacqui June 15, 2013 at 7:39 pm

My goal is to someday have my food look as appetizing as yours! Lol. I haven’t had one of your doughboy smoothie recipes in quite awhile. You’ve inspired me to pull out the blender!

19 Maggie @ Sunnyside Up Smile June 15, 2013 at 10:15 pm

I love that Mazen’s favorite meal was salmon, avocado and broccoli bits. I wish I could get my family of picky eaters to eat more nutritious and REAL food like that :) I love your weekly eats too! Everything looks super tasty! I think I might do a post like that tomorrow. What kind of yogurt do you buy? I like
Trader Joe’s Nonfat Greek.

Thoughts on Nikki’s coconut butter vs Artisana??? Yummy eats as always, loving all the fresh berries; apricots just back this week here and they’re amazing!

Reply

27 KathEats June 17, 2013 at 2:04 pm

They’re about the same flavor wise. Artisana might be slightly dripper/creamier

My eating habits always greatly improve when I visit your blog regularly. Sometimes I forget how versatile fresh food can be! Your pictures get my imagination goin. I’ll ponder this while eating the same salad I’ve had the past four days in a row :p Great lately post as always!

What kind of Sippy cup is Mazen using there? And does he like it? Trying to find one for my little guy and feel like I’m wasting money, because so far it’s been trial, with a lot of error with various brands.

I never thought of eggs on the salad, but I’m going to try that soon!

30 KathEats June 18, 2013 at 5:11 am

I have some babies r us brand and playtex brand and he doesn’t really get either of them quite yet

Such delicious foods! Those Cheerios look fantastic! They make me want to run to the store and get some strawberries for my own breakfast tomorrow!
