Halfway through September, who can believe it?!
I’m still hung over from summer and hardly ready for Fall. I am excited to see pears and apples and even pumpkins on the horizon though.
It’s been a heck of a month for me, as I’ve been fighting off a nasty sickness and dealing with the possibility of moving in two weeks. I’ll get more into that in a later post.
For now, let’s have a look-see at all the delicious food I’ve been partaking of!
This day, I enjoyed my Paleo Chocolate Milkshake for breakfast.
I made a triple batch and shared it with the kids before school. Because Jade had some, I traded the walnuts for about 1/2 cup of hemp seeds, which made it quite filling!
I’ve also been employing a little trick lately to make the shake more ‘ice cream-like’. I freeze my Homemade Coconut Milk in an ice cube tray and use it in lieu of water cubes.
Since the girls started school, the hubs and I have been enjoying our alone time quite a bit.
He gets home from work around 8:30am, and he’ll sit with me at the computer for a bit while I work on blog stuff.
Then, we run errands together with Sammy, come home, and have lunch together.
This day, and many days lately, we’ve been eating my Homemade Spelt Pizza.
I like mine light on the cheese and heavy on veggies (and bread, lol).
When our pizza coma wears off, we usually like to have a treat of some sort before we hit the gym.
I’m telling you, having dessert before dinner is awesome. It gives me a dash of pep for the remainder of the day, and I don’t go to bed full of carbs and sweets.
On this day, I made my Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie…
I topped it with a serving of Peanut Butter ‘Frosting’, which really takes it over the top.
This is my favorite treat right now!
I tried a new recipe on a whim this night.
I layered sardines, various vegetables, including squash, red bell pepper, and snow peas, in a casserole dish, topped it with olive oil, lemon juice, and dill, and baked it.
I didn’t have high hopes for this, and really didn’t think anyone would enjoy it, but it turned out to be a hit, even with the kids!
It’ll definitely make an appearance here soon, though I know many will be skeptical of its deliciousness.
I served the meal with white rice that had been sautéed with butter, onion, and garlic, and tossed with a bit of parsley.
Because I enjoy my dessert earlier in the day now, I usually end the night with a tea of some sort. Peppermint, ginger, cinnamon, licorice, and red raspberry are among my favorites, and they all have positive benefits, which is nice.
What are you eating lately?
