Hello there! Happy Wednesday! Hopefully, your day is getting off to a fabulous start.
Since it’s finally starting to feel like spring around here (I haven’t had to wear my winter coat in like 4 days! That is amazing!) my eats are starting to reflect the change in weather. I’ve still got some winter favourites kicking around (squash!) but my eats are changing a little bit to reflect some of my favourite Spring-y foods. BBQ, salads, smoothies, fruit and ice cream all scream warmer weather to me.
So..let’s take a look at some of my ‘the-thermostat-is-slowly-creeping-up’ sort of eats, shall we? Thanks to Jenn for hosting our favourite foodie linkup!
A chocolate-banana-PB smoothie (almond milk, North Coast Naturals chocolate protein powder, PB2, spinach) topped with Cinnamon Puffins and coconut butter.
I made banana bread on Sunday (this recipe that I adore, except I re-glutenized and de-veganed it. And pounded a chocolate bar with a rolling pin and threw that in the mix) so I went for that as my morning snack.
I took a little spoonful of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl while I was debating what to snack on.
How about some BBQ to get you in the warm-weather mood?
I noticed that ribs were on sale over the weekend, which are Eric’s favourite. So, I decided to earn some girlfriend points and cook up a rack for dinner. Of course, they’re not quite as awesome when you don’t have a grill…and I accidentally overdid them a little in the oven. Nothing a little extra BBQ sauce can’t fix though! And a side spinach salad for some veggies.
One of the usuals:
Cottage cheese mixed with chocolate casein, Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, and a swirl of chocolate sauce to top it off. The chocolate sauce is a new addition, but it needs to stick around…a little bit goes a long way!
So, the ribs gave me a craving for more BBQ…I think Imma need some pulled pork in my near future.
But that’s all for me, have a good one!
