The view from my apartment — absolute magic in the morning!
Sure, we all love a good set of commenting “rules”, but a lot of you make valid points that not all of them apply all the time. Who doesn’t love to get a little silly in their comments sometimes? I sure do!
I encourage you to head over to the comments section and leave your thoughts. Join the conversation. Be one of the content creators and let us hear you roar. Now, a quick preview of a couple of recipes coming to you this weekend and early next week:
Late-night “snack” the size of my head (I’m completely serious. It’s bigger than my head), and….
PANCAKES! Both recipes are TOTALLY vegetarian, totally gluten-free, totally paleo, and totally high in protein. I don’t like to toot my own horn (just kidding I do), but these were unreal. I can’t wait for them to hit your bellies.
Don’t you love making beautiful things in the kitchen? (or on many occasions NOT so beautiful, but completely delicious )
Now let’s move on to what I’ve been eating lately. I feel like I rotate a lot of the same foods (or ingredients, rather), but I’m trying to switch it up with new additions and some sick sauces. I’ve been noticing a lot more lethargy (due to lack of sleep and too much stress, I’m sure), but I’m trying to cut down on simple carbs (I’m looking at you, Agave Nectar) and bump up the protein and healthy fats, which I often lose sight of when I’m constantly GO-GO-GOING all the time.
Enter: Lots of veggies…
I love getting frozen veggies from Wegmans and popping them in the microwave! I need to stock up on these, but most of the time I eat veggies raw, either whole or in salad form with homemade dressing — usually a 2:1 oil-to-acid ratio.
Teriyaki chicken, because I can.
Snackles in the form of smaller versions of the above chocolate-looking “snack” the size of my head. (times two)
I am going to dedicate a whole post to this (unbelievably short and simple) recipe, so don’t you worry. Your bellies will be satisfied come Monday (or Tuesday).
And last but not least…..
EGGS! Oh gosh I eat so many eggs. Sometimes people ask so I’ll just tell ya: I eat 3 eggs a day (sometimes 4), and typically some form of egg whites later in the day.
Do you notice that these eggs are fried and not scrambled? I’m switching it up! Turns out I loveeeee love love the partially-uncooked yolk. Holy crap it’s so good. Plus I think they look kinda cool.
Note: Bacon is awesome.
Dalai Lama is a champion too.
Yes, Lama. You raise that hand way up.
Remember when I said I was going to see the Dalai Lama speak at SU? Well, people. My mind was sufficiently blown. But that is a post and a rant for another time. I leave you with this picture of my face, pre-concert:
Selfies are required around here. In fact, we run on them.
That’s all for now! See you tomorrow with a Sunday recipe for pancakes (want a preview? scroll back up. nom), and NYC recaps on a rolling basis. I know that I personally wouldn’t want to read three days in a row of recaps, nor would I want to write so many…. so I’m spreading them out for you. Like, really spreading them out. Until then, here’s Part I!
I want to know:
How are you Sweating Dirty today?
What have you been eating lately? (tell me all about your yummies — a girl could always use some food ideas!)
Selfies — do you run on them? (maybe this is a 20-something-year-old thing, but I think everyone should stay young)
