A Few Good Meals

I am way too tired to write…how about pictures instead…

My faaaavvvee breakfast!  Oatmeal made with almond milk and water, cooked with bananas, topped with cacao nibs, razzies, hiding strawberries, and a spoonful of almond butter.  My faaaaavvveee!!!DSCF2213For FabPreteen, whose tastes are evolving (finally!!!), yogurt mix…peach yogurt topped with razzies, strawberries, bananas, and a sprinkle of granola.  She loves this day I will wean her off the yogurt with fruit…but for now I am happy she is eating this!DSCF2215Sweet organic grapefruit shared with FabPreteen.DSCF2216 Organic tangerine…midday snack!

DSCF2217Dinner…chickpea/broccoli/potato coconut curry over quinoa and topped with raw cashews and raisins…DSCF2218 DSCF2219 DSCF2220 DSCF2221 OMG this was incredibly good!DSCF2222Breakfast this morning…FabPreteen and I had coupons for free oatmeal at Starbucks for…it came with cute little packets of dried fruit (currants, mixed raisins, cranberries) and mixed nuts (walnuts, almonds, and pecans)

DSCF2223And a cute little packet of brown sugar which I resisted at first (I never use it on my oats at home!) but at 50 calories I  succumbed..put all the packets in my oats..and felt so guilty!DSCF2224On a regular day I wouldn’t pay for Starbucks oatmeal when I could make it at home for pennies….and healthier…but it was good!  And probably better than stopping at Dunkin’ Donuts.DSCF2225Finally dinner tonight…shock shock shock…made by FabHubs!  Yes…HE COOKED THAT STUFF!  (He has resisted cooking dinner since we went organic/vegetarian..well I went vegetarian, he is resisting that too.   He always tells me, “I don’t know how to cook that stuff!”)

Roasted acorn squash, collard greens sauteed with garlic and onion, topped with parmesan cheese, and sauteed leeks.DSCF2226

Another shock…the collards, squash, and leeks are from previous weeks….and are the very last of older veggies. 

For the first time in I don’t know how long, I ONLY HAVE ORGANIC PRODUCE FROM THIS WEEK’S BOX IN MY HOUSE! 

I really can’t believe it!

And on that note…I am going to bed!!!!!

Just picked up my first half share and I'm excited! I'll definitely have to supplement fruits, since there aren't many, but I'm going to see what I think after getting it for a few weeks

YaY! Hope you like it!

Full shares got apples and mangos, which the halfs didn't get this week...but still, I am with you on the fruits...I get the $20 fruit add on every week because fruit is the go-to snack in our house!
