Nutty day

It’s been a nutty day.  Not figuratively, literally!

I had nut butter for breakfast,

Nuts for a snack,

And nuts on my salad.

Tell me I’m not the only one amused by this.  Oh, I am?  😉

For a snack, I had some almonds, 2 dates, and 3 dried apricots.  It was like an unprocessed Larabar!

This was really filling and I wasn’t hungry at my usual time, but I still ate lunch at 11 am anyway.    It’s what I do.

This delicious salad contains:

  • Baby spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Orange pepper
  • Hummus
  • Feta cheese
  • Almonds
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette

I continue to adore the hummus + feta + avocado combination.  The almonds provided a nice “crunch”, too!

Now it is time to eat some sea salt chocolate!  It should always be time to eat sea salt chocolate, really 🙂

    I approve of all the nuttiness. 🙂 Especially the unprocessed larabar, hehe. Sometimes I even spread almond butter on my dates or apricots, total Larabar heaven!

      Ooh, I have tried the nut butter on date combo. So good! (and much more frugal 😉 )

    I love nuts and nutbutters, too 🙂
    I always say that if I write an autobiography it would be called
    “If you are what youeat, then I must be nuts!”

      I love that title! I would definitely read that autobiography.

    That sea salt chocolate isn’t vegan.

    I don’t want to talk about it.

      This is the saddest thing I have heard all day.

  • […] Luckily, quinoa isn’t just a funky-named, healthy grain eaten by hippies on communes.  It actually tastes good!  When cooked, it is light and fluffy in texture and nutty in flavour (and if there is one thing you know about me, it’s that I like nuts!) […]

    You’ve got me hooked on sea salt chocolate!

      Hurrah! Now if only I could receive some “kick backs” from Lindt (in the form of free sea salt chocolate. Ha!).

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
