Hiya foodies!

Eats from last week:



I classed up my overnight oats in a lovely yogurt container. Combined with iced coffee, zero dishes to do! Woo hoo! I don’t really mind washing dishes that much, but it’s just the fact that I have to wash the same dishes over and over and over and over every single day that drives me nuts sometimes!


{Yay for dishwashers}


Family egg-tastic breakfast with fruit and toast


I had this small-ish bowl of fruit, yogurt granola and nut butter before the farmer’s market one day. I had planned to maybe snack on something else but I never did. And this ended up being enough.


Hi oatmeal!


I missed you. Topped with crumbled Harvest Bar from Great Harvest and mixed with berries and cottage cheese. Sunbutter is the butter of the week.


A dreary pre-sunrise scrambled egg, banana, grape and toast plate.


This guy was crumbled Hummingbird Muffin, Greek yogurt, banana and sunbutter.


Ahh and good ole French toast! On Cinnamon Chip – a treat!



This salad was topped with herby lentils, tomatoes from the garden, green peppers, avocado and goat cheese. With a toasted Virginia roll on the side.


Leftover quiche, salad with leftover roasted veggies and goat cheese and a peach. Lemonade water on the side.


I LOVE hydrangeas!


An amazing tomato, basil, bacon and goat cheese sandwich. On herby sourdough from the bakery. Tomato from the garden!


Salad on the side


Another No Bull Burger salad with grapes and toast. Lots and lots of tomatoes!


Here’s one of Mazen’s lunches! No Bull Burger with peas, cheese, butternut squash and carrot.


Lunch at the bakery – Pimento cheese + tofu salad with fresh High Five on the side and chutney on top!




Easy dinner: No Bull Burger on a Virginia roll with some cheese and a big veggie-heavy salad with Annie’s Woodstock dressing.


Leftovers dinner:


London Broil and grilled veggies, caprese salad from the garden and half a Virginia roll


That’s all I got for dinners – more next week!

Absolutely delicious post! Lots of inspiration for the week ahead!! Your “”dreary” picture made me smile tho, because it still looks fantastic next to a plain bagel, donut or fast food breakfast sandwich that is the fuel for so many people. Thanks for getting my am off to a healthy start.


2 Jordan July 22, 2013 at 8:58 am

Those hydrangeas are beautiful, so vibrant!! That’s my absolute favorite flower there is. :) Are they from your garden/yard?


3 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 9:00 am

The market, but we are working on growing some


4 Karen July 22, 2013 at 9:25 am

My favorite too…incomparably lush and fragrant (the latter being a huge bonus!) Enjoy :)


5 Shel@PeachyPalate July 22, 2013 at 9:03 am

I don’t even need to be hungry to finish reading your lately post and have a zillion cravings!!! Deliciousness! Sunbutter..always the nut butter of the week! Recently try Maranatha Sunflower seed butter, only salt added….pretty darn amazing! I was mightily impressed!


6 Carly @ Snack Therapy July 22, 2013 at 9:07 am

I’m so thankful for my dishwasher, as I despise washing the billion dishes I use each day. I used to think I hated French toast until I had an amazing graham cracker-encrusted, biscoff-stuffed French toast dish this weekend. Oh my gooooodnesssss, it was dreamy,


7 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 9:13 am

Wow I want that French toast!


8 Melissa July 22, 2013 at 9:20 am

Everything looks so great and colorrful!


9 Maureen July 22, 2013 at 9:47 am

I haven’t even had breakfast & I am craving all those salads you posted! :)


10 Kinsey July 22, 2013 at 10:01 am

Your lunches always look fantastic! I would love to try a No Bull burger.


11 Kelly @ Kelly Runs for Food July 22, 2013 at 10:24 am

Those salads look amazing! I can’t wait till our garden tomatoes are ready to eat and I’ll be all some caprese salad.


12 Meagan July 22, 2013 at 10:29 am

Wow! I’ve never see such purple hydrangeous! Gorgeous!


13 Mitch Parker July 22, 2013 at 10:31 am

Wow! Every recipe you’ve mentioned is delicious! Your lunch is superb. I wish I can prepare my meal like that. Thanks for sharing. You just made me hungry right now. :-p


14 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! July 22, 2013 at 10:40 am

I always love looking at all your colorful plates and unique bowls! The bright blue is my favorite!


15 Sydney @ Trust the Skinny Cook July 22, 2013 at 10:43 am

Your tomatoes look delicious. And yay for chutney… Such an overlooked condiment!


16 Claire @ Health Nut Claire July 22, 2013 at 10:44 am

I just recently did *half* of the conscious cleanse and it focuses on food pairings. So either grains with veggies or protein with veggies, no mixing of the two and fruit by itself. I actually noticed a big difference in the way I digested my meals – little to no gas and bloating, regular BMs and etc… My question is what’s your opinion on food pairing? I’m a food and nutrition major on my way to becoming an RD so I know we’ve been taught protein, carb, fat at every meal for satiety. I know you could still accomplish the three following the food pairing rules but anyways. It’s a new concept to me so I wanted to get your take on it. Thanks!


17 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 3:41 pm

I really don’t think it’s necessary for most people (for example, I mix my foods and don’t have gas/bloating/irregularity) but those who do have trouble and have found improvement experimenting with different food combos might have something different about their guts that demand more simplicity in foods.


18 Emily @ Life on Food July 22, 2013 at 11:34 am

Our tomatoes are just starting to turn. Cannot wait for a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad. That will be pretty much all I eat for a few days once they start coming in. Best. Part. Of. Summer.


19 Chelsea Preedy July 22, 2013 at 11:35 am

You’re plates are absolutely beautiful! There is something about eating food that has been prepared well and presented in a gorgeous way. Thanks for the post, I’m thinking I may need to add some No-Bull burgers to my menu this week. YUM!


20 Sara @ fitcupcaker July 22, 2013 at 11:37 am

I wish I could jump into this post and eat all that food right now!


21 emily July 22, 2013 at 11:38 am

Oh god, that salad. I love pimento cheese so much but it just doesn’t seem as good when I make it at home. I need to travel down South to get my fix! When we were in Atlanta last year I had pimento cheese with spiced saltines at a little bar and it was basically the best thing ever.


22 Charmaine July 22, 2013 at 1:07 pm

How do you make herby lentils? I’m looking for meat-free protein sources, and soy doesn’t work for me, so lentils might be my easiest go-to!


23 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm

I just tossed in an herbs de Provence blend I have


24 Charmaine July 23, 2013 at 5:42 am

Thanks very much — easy and nutritious, can’t beat it, I’ll be making these tonight :)


25 Jane @ Not Plain So Jane July 22, 2013 at 1:48 pm

I love hydrangeas too, they are my favorite!


26 Amy @ July 22, 2013 at 2:57 pm

I eating some pimento cheese right now! Oh, my, what some beautiful fresh food in every one of these pictures! Love the healthy food on Mazen’s high chair! =)


27 Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen July 22, 2013 at 3:05 pm

I feel ya’ on not dirtying up more dishes than needed. I love your plates and bowls!


28 Nikki July 22, 2013 at 5:25 pm

When you have a peach for lunch do you eat it with your meal or save it later as a snack?

Not sure why but I’ve always thought of fruit as a snack and not part of lunch. Ill have veggies for lunch but never fruit.


29 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 6:50 pm

It’s usually the “dessert” of my lunch


30 Erika @ fortheloveofpeanutbutter July 22, 2013 at 7:19 pm

Your salads look heavenly.
PS I started getting my bread from a Great Harvest nearby where I live, and I’m sold. The dakota and cinnamon chip breads have my heart.


31 KathEats July 22, 2013 at 8:18 pm

That makes me happy : )


32 Katherine July 22, 2013 at 8:10 pm
33 Taylor July 22, 2013 at 9:32 pm

I’g glad someone else puts cottage cheese in their oatmeal! Everyone thinks it’s the strangest thing but they don’t know what they’re missing out on! :)


34 Kerry July 23, 2013 at 2:04 am

Your food always looks so nice, I’m not a salad lover but yours always looks delicious!


35 Christina @ The Beautiful Balance July 23, 2013 at 2:08 am

Those hydrangeas are GORGEOUS! I will now be on the hunt for them everywhere!


36 Vanessa July 23, 2013 at 4:03 am

I love the detail you have added to the post. The piccies and food looks fantastic, very healthy and mouth watering.


37 Ellie July 23, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Hi Kath, just wondering what a London broil is! I’m a Londoner and have never heard of it – just wondering if I’ve missed something? :)


38 KathEats July 23, 2013 at 2:02 pm

It’s an American cut of beef grilled and sliced thinly – ironically not related to London which is probably why you haven’t heard of it : )


39 Sars July 23, 2013 at 1:49 pm

What is lemonade water? Half water, half Crystal Light?


40 KathEats July 23, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Close…1/4 Santa Cruiz lemonade and 3/4 water


41 Marissa@ohhhsolovely July 24, 2013 at 1:03 pm

this post made me crave some nutbutters. those hydrangeas are great. are they from your garden?


42 Rachel July 28, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Where do you get your mason jars and metal straws? I think those would be the perfect accessory to my morning iced coffee. Your eats lately look delicious.


43 KathEats July 29, 2013 at 5:48 am

The straws are from Amazon. ..jars collected from various place s
