In case you are sick of my big ol’ curly-haired head popping up on your computer screen (p.s. notice the new, darker do?), I can assure you this is the last part of the three-series VLOG. Thank you again to Brendon and everyone at the Willy Street Co-op for letting me take this blog on location – y’all are the best!
If you need to catch-up on the first two parts, do it now before you reach the end of this post…
Anyways…these past couple days, Wisconsin suddenly decided rain + wind is cool. I happen to disagree. However, in order to deal with what the weather gods have dealt us in the Midwest, I have been waking up in the A.M. with a mondo hankering for warm oats. Specifically, SSB+J Oats…
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup organic skim milk
pinch of salt
1 smashed naner
vanilla NuNaturals stevia drops
1 T blackberry jam
1 T sunflower seed buttah
Never, ever lets me down. Unlike lipstick, large hoop earrings, David O. Russell movies, grapefruit, horoscopes and tube tops – all of which I continually try over and over (convincing myself this is going to be the day I like it) – which always let me down.
There have been several yog messes over the past couple days…
Blackberry jam + ground flaxseed make great yog mess add-ins, FYI.
On my usual weekly grocery shop this weekend, I made a new, locally-produced foodie discovery. Browsing my co-op’s rather sad hummus selection (one of its only downfalls), I spotted this tub and immediately purchased it with Elise in mind…
The verdict? Very enjoyable! I can’t say it’s my fave hummus ever (hello, Sabra?!?!), but I love the fact it’s got some tofu, tamari + parsley in it. A lil’ extra protein + bit of a kick gets two thumbs up in my book. Word to the garbanzo bean. It really truly is the best bean.
While I have enjoyed this hummus dipped in carrots, on a lovely veggie sammie and licked right out the container with my short n’ stubby fingers, my absolute FAVORITE way I have enjoyed this newfound product is in this…
3 cups baby spring mix
1 Sunshine falafel patty, crumbled
1 grated carrot
huge dollop o’ hummus
2 T crushed walnuts
hefty pinch of red pepper flakes
drizzle of light Hidden Valley ranch dressing
HELLO BEAUTEOUS JUNK SALAD!
Devoured in roughly four minutes and 28 seconds.
To keep this post from becoming ginormously + obnoxiously long, I am going to save my new April goals for another post. So, without further ado, I present to you the final installment of The Healthy Everythingtarian’s VLOG #5 shot live at the lovely Willy Street Co-op…
P.S. Many of you wondered if there was a natural foods co-op where you live…click here for a national directory of co-ops, and find one in your area!
