Stuff I Ate

Hey guys! Happy Saturday and happy weekend! As always, I'll be joining you there in a few hours. This weekend is a little bit more hectic as I'm pitching in to help take care of Delilah and the fur babies while my brother and sister in law are in Aruba. I got her ready for school yesterday and put her on the bus and it was a lot to get done while taking care of the animals and getting ready to go to work myself. We all survived and made it where we needed to go on time. I'll be with her again on Sunday to put her on the bus again on Monday. So much credit to all of you parents out there that do this every day.

Anyway, I have some delicious meals to share with you. I've been eating some good stuff lately and I've been pretty diligent about taking some pictures too :)

Sometimes all you need is a good bowl of cereal. This is a bowl of the Cinnamon Puffins that I got from Whole Foods with some unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

This is probably the best bento lunch I've made yet! On the left is a wrap with hummus, avocado, tofurkey, lettuce and tomato and a few of the Earth Balance Vegan Cheddar Crackers. On the right is a salad made with romaine, craisins, almonds and apples with a vinaigrette. Seriously so good you guys.

Popcorn as a snack. So freaking good. It's such a great, simple, satisfying snack.

I enjoyed that salad so much I made it for lunch again. Larger salad, just as delicious.

A unhealthy processed dinner of champions. I had some Gardein Crispy Tenders and some of the Alexia Rosemary Fries. Both were delicious.

You guys. Seriously. This breakfast was so simple but so insanely good. I haven't had avocado toast in a long time and I had a perfectly ripe avocado so I made some. Rather than topping it with the usual salt and pepper I decided to use the Everything Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe's and you guys… do this ASAP!!! It's amazing! I had some strawberries on the side that were surprisingly sweet and delicious for this time of the year.

So there you have it! I'm not sure what I'll have for you on Tuesday since this weekend is a bit weird with scheduling and whatnot but I'll try my best to get something interesting together to you. I hope you all have a great weekend! <3


  1. I know I say it all the time, but your Bro and SIL are so damn lucky to have you! It would literally cost them an extra grand for the week to have strangers care for their babies (fur and non). I know this because I am getting to the point of having to pay it myself to get away.

    Do your coworkers admire your bento box? I love Gardein Crispy Tenders too! Excellent idea on the Everything Seasoning for the Avocado Toast. I will put it on my grocery list.

    Have fun with the neices and nephews!

    1. Haha thanks. I appreciate hearing that. I think sometimes they think it is a vacation for me but it's a lot of responsibility. If you were here I'd take care of your babies for you!

      It's usually just me here when I have lunch but I don't really get any comments if my boss is here. The everything seasoning on the avocado toast is so amazing, you'll definitely love it!


    2. I have five cats in the house, plus one outside. If you werent allergic, I would fly you down here, believe me, I have thought about it.

      Didnt realize you ate alone. Guess I would prefer that personally.

    3. Aww that's sweet. Haha it would be a vacation for both of us!

      Yeah, most days I eat alone… sometimes my boss is here though. I tend to be alone a lot and I definitely don't mind.

  2. I haven't had cereal in so long, I don't know why. I always have one bowl and feel satisfied and the rest goes stale I guess. Those puffins look great!
    Your fries and chicken-less tender meal looks outstanding! It all looks beautiful and delicious! I love the Bento box!
    Have so much fun with the fur babies and sweet Delilah!

    1. I don't buy cereal often but when I do I make sure to finish the box eventually haha. The puffins are very yummy!

      Thank you! It was all delicious.

      Thanks! I'm tired haha

  3. I almost had the Everything Bagel seasoning in my hand the other day. I talked myself out of it because I thought, "what would I put it on?". And there ya go. I'd have to put it on avocado toast. Ha ha! I'll pick it up on my next trip.

    Speaking of TJ's and crispy tenders - I wanted to pick up some of their version, and they were out of all meatless fare minus the meatballs and veg burgers. Absolutely out. I asked an employee if they were going to restock or just stop carrying them, and she said there was a supplier problem. Ack! Gardein it is...

    Serious bento box envy! Squeeze sweet Delilah for me!

    1. Oooh get it! There is so much you can do with it! The avocado toast was delicious with it!

      I think there was an issue with their supplier for some of their vegan stuff and it's going to be out of stock for a while. They said that it may take a while but they will be back in stock at some point. Hopefully they mean it!

  4. Great snacks and meals! Yummers! Now I'm HUNGRY!!!!
