How about these weird blue cakes? 🎂
Kiddo and I are not bakers but this was pretty fun to throw together. I also had to improvise ingredients on some recipes because I don’t feel like going to the store today. All improvising takes is google and math. 🧁
Kiddo wants to do a chocolate cake for her birthday so this tester was just a fun way to plan my timing. It’s taken me about 2 hours start to finish. Not bad. For the record, I haven’t baked a cake since the time I did it with my grandmother since I was about 13.
Last night I almost went to bed without eating... then all of the sudden this happened. It was a rough week, so glad I could kick back and relax.
As much as I’d love to take credit for these spinach and kale bites... they are just another Trader Joe’s addiction.
Pan Seared Salmon
-BBQ cut Salmon Filets
-Dry room temperature salmon filets with paper towel.
-Season all over with salt and pepper.
-Squeeze lemon juice over each fillet.
-Heat oil in a large non-stick pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
-Sear salmon flesh side down, pressing them lightly so the entire surface of the flesh comes into contact with the pan, until crispy and golden.
-Flip and sear the other side until the outside is crispy.
-Add in the butter, garlic, parsley and lemon juice, stirring the melting butter around each fillet. (The butter will begin to brown slightly.)
1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil or melted coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
ground black pepper to taste
Half Cauliflower Head
Preheat your oven to 375 F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat
🔅In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Toss with a large spoon a few times to evenly coat the florets with the oil, salt and pepper.
🔅 Evenly spread out the cauliflower onto the baking sheet in a single layer.
🔅 Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn the florets over. Return to oven a bake for 15 to 20 more minutes or until the ends of the florets start to turn a golden brown

Have you ever skipped carbs at breakfast?
Having a balanced breakfast, including carbs can help you focus and feel more satisfied before lunch.
Salads don’t have to suck!
Adding healthy fats (avocado, oils) will create a more nourishing and satisfying meal☺️You need fat to digest the fat soluble vitamins in the salad. So eating plain carrots won’t do you a whole lot of good if you’re hoping to absorb all that vitamin A.
Your body is so much smarter than any dieting tricks - inc the carbonated water 💦 trick, to trick your body into forgetting it’s hungry. The only way to curb hunger and cravings is to satisfy them without guilt and move on with your day. The more restrictions, the more likely you’re going to #binge on the very food you were trying to avoid.
If you want a salad, have one! However, if you’re truly craving something else, have whatever that is. Ignoring what you really want may only lead to bingeing later on😌
5️⃣❗️YOU NEED CARBS, FAT & PROTEIN
Enjoy a well balanced meal, and you won't be feeling hungry later on. Your body NEEDS nutrients - ENJOY THEM🙌🏻
Only YOU know what’s best for your body.
You have the right to enjoy your meal, without guilt or shame, and without thinking how long it would take to burn those calories off. Work on learning to trust yourself around food as this will give you the freedom to enjoy Holiday meals and move on with your day🌸

Took the time to prep some amaaazing food for the week! Made yucca, mushrooms, chickpeas, root vegetables from farmer’s market and a creamy cashew sauce. The cashew sauce is only overnight soaked cashews, white beans, nutritional yeast, basil and garlic! It turned out somewhat like a ranch dressing, sooo good over the root vegetables 🌱 this was later topped with strained tomato, nutritional yeast, some mulberries, sliced almonds and pistachios ! #vegan#plantbased#dormfood#foodprep#cooking
We eat a lot of corn tortillas, so I'm really glad Mr 19 Months has finally decided that he now likes them too. It's always my goal for breakfast and dinner -- the meals we eat together as a family each day -- to be the same meal for everyone. That's much easier to achieve when the toddler enjoys the same staple foods as the adults.
Today for breakfast we had a mushroom, pepper, and onion omelette. Not pictured is the toddler's latest obsession: taco sauce. In his opinion, there is nothing that can't be improved by taco sauce. I'll have to try making my own soon, with ingredients that are a little better than the bottled kind.
Add it to my mile-long list of things to do. I'll probably get to it eventually.
