Trendy Eats...

Yesterday over Instagram I shared my "go-to" breakfast of last week.  I believe it will be my favorite this week as well.  For some reason I have been craving toast and a good serving of veggies every morning.  Sadly, I ran out of my favorite brown rice bread from Ener-g, which gave me the chance to try out the bread my family loves from a local Colorado bakery.  I have mentioned this brand before on here when I did my healthier french toast recipe back in November.  My family still loves the bread and every time I go to Sam's Club I snatch a couple of loaves.

My go-to breakfast:
hummus (as a spread to my toast)
a side of sourkraut
2 cups of fresh veggies (zucchini, peppers, onion, leeks and broccoli)
1/2 cup of liquid egg-whites (organic from the carton)

On a good day this egg situation becomes an omelet.  As you can probably tell from the photo, on particular day I was not so lucky with the flipping, so I turned it into a scramble.  Awww, the beauty of cooking for your self...  Who cares what the end product looks like, as long as it taste delish!

Also, every since my food sensitivity test results, I have been staying away from my favorite protein bar from QuestNutrition.  I have instead enjoyed a green concoction for my afternoon snack.

My afternoon Green Shake...
 I have to admit that this photo was from a similar green smoothie recipe I posted on the blog a while back.  While all green smoothies and shakes are not created equal, they sure all look the same!! 
Am I right???

My afternoon green shake:
10 oz of unsweetened almond milk
2 cups of organic baby spinach
2 tbsp. of ground flax-seeds
1/2 a scoop of vegan protein powder
1 tbsp. of PB2 (powder peanut butter)
1 cup of ice
stevia and cinnamon to taste

I just throw it all in my OmniV, blend, serve and enjoy it!

I am a creature of habit.  When I find a food combo I like I stick to it until I get sick of it.  Eating the same types of foods keeps me accountable and helps me out a lot when creating my weekly grocery shopping list.

FYI!  I just received my "detox" diet from Charlene, and I am starting it next week.  A few of you said you wanted an update on this so, I will post one in about 3 weeks.  The detox diet is for 14 days.  Again, it is not a calorie restrictive diet nor a juice cleanse.  I am really looking forward to starting it and feeling better.  

Question of the day:
 Are you like me when it comes to food combos?  What are your trendy eats as of lately?

  24. But Perry’s brief, bungled campaign in 2011 and Timberland Outlet online 2012 ruled out coquettishness in favor of a highly visible, deliberate comeback. “ When you have a bad campaign, donors want to see the apology tour,” Timberland Sale said one Republican strategist with ties to the governor. “Perry has done that.”
