What’s going on friends!? Friendsgivings? Fall Festivals? Pumpkin beer? We didn’t get a chance to do our annual pumpkin beer tasting this year, but Matt brewed a really good one! Next year we’ll get back at the whole shebang and taste all the new ones to the market. We have been out hiking in the crunchy leaves!
We’ve also been doing lots of puzzles. All the time puzzles!!!
I went with my girlfriends to Nude Food for lunch one day and had this glorious spread!! LOVE the chickpea side dish! And that pimento grilled cheese was the bomb! The pot pie and wheatberries with butternut and kale dishes were also so good. This is the best place for a casual-but-sit-down lunch with really healthy food.
Had a bunch of the leftovers for lunch the next day!!
Hmmm…then I went to the grocery store to stock up. Got lots of healthy things on the bottom and then put unhealthier things like delicious cheese and crackers on top!
Breakfast one day was yogurt with raspberries, banana, raspberry jam, and homemade granola on top.
Matt made an excellent pasta dish with sausage while I was in Richmond and I had leftovers for lunch plus a bunch of steamed spinach and pesto on top!
When it gets cold out I get a little tired of salads, so I threw a bunch of veggies into a monster omelet for Lauren and I and the kiddos. Plus cheese oozing out of the inside!! Such a simple yet filling lunch.
Dinner one night was a Mona Lisa Pasta baked ziti. Plus baked acorn squash (had a bunch from the pan so I only had one one my plate!) and a massaged kale Caesar.
Mazen and I made some fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice one morning. Citrus juicer was a birthday gift from a nutrition-focused friend! Shirt optional ; )
We chased the fruit juice with eggs and raspberry jam toast!
Overnight oats with raspberries and sunbutter. The bomb.com!
I was working on a recipe involving macadamia nuts and ate a bunch, so I had a small lunch one day (wasn’t hungry at all!) Cucs with hummus and a yogurt with granola on top.
And finally, a big tempeh and slaw scramble with peanuty noodles from Cook Smarts! Topped with lime, honey peanuts and sriracha.
That’s a wrap folks!!
