Well, I finally got to the grocery store.
It had been weeks. Thank you Dan for having much more adult responsibility and helping keep me alive.
Groceries or no groceries, here are a few things I’ve been enjoying lately. Mostly breakfasts because, well, it’s me. Many a good thing have escaped the eye of the camera phone. Like life, sometimes the undocumented things just mean you were too busy enjoying them. Also, winter lighting.
Also, winter everything.
I have been craving toast sooo much. Like, all the time. Every morning that’s all I want. I splurged on some Silver Hills organic cinnamon raisin bread the other week so have been trying to savor it. Man I had been craving cinnamon raisin bread for an eternity. Spread with peanut butter or cream cheese. Not sure which I like better. Seriously just as long as its toast. Or a bagel…

Like I’ve quickly mentioned, Dan is not eating gluten right now. Still however, I was determined to make sure he could still have his beloved breakfast sandwiches, so I picked up some glutino english muffins. They were great! Not like a real english muffin, no, but really tasty in their own way. We devoured the package by making a few renditions of breakfast sandwiches. This one….. oh no look at that picture. How awful. See? This is why my picture taking has decreased….. sorry, I’m back…. this one was 1 fried egg+ smoked gouda + organic pea meal bacon + mayo + tomato. It tasted way better than it looks, I promise.
And most importantly, Dan still loved it.

Leftover baking and yogurt bowls
Always the leftover baking.
I’m back to some yogurt bowls. I don’t know if you remember, but during all my stomach pains I stopped having yogurt because it seemed to be one of the main proponents of said pain. I bought my first tub in a number of months and I think its been going okay…
Chai pumpkin loaf (replaced butternut squash) + organic 2% yogurt + banana + blackberries + peanut butter
There have been soooo many early morning, take from home, breakfasts lately. I’ve had so many early morning appointments squeezed in, which have meant many early morning streetcar rides, time to kill in coffeeshops, and thus hello tupperwares.
Overnight oats: 1/2 cup oats + peanut butter + banana + blackberries + almond milk + granola
Lots of leftover quick loaf or muffins from the freezer + peanut butter + fruit
Breakfast for lunch
This was a lunch at home. Lunches at home seem to be interchangeable with my breakfasts. Breakfast food is just home food, you know?
3 slices gluten free cornbread with butter and jam + 2 scrambled eggs
Finally I restocked myself up with this bad boy. Man its good. And it lasts in the fridge for a good long time so you can have leftovers for days and serve it multiple ways. My favorite still is, and will always be, the combo of drippy egg meets avocado.
Until I find the time to use my new waffle maker (!!!)….. toaster waffles.

Dan’s rubbing off on me, with his eggs and potatoes silliness. On this morning, I really really wanted a bagel. But I also had things in my fridge I really wanted to use up and was feeling exceptionally foggy brained. So I ended up making this little masterpiece. Post picture was a topping of chives and side of ketchup. Totally sad I forgot the chives in the picture. #fancyphotofail
Roasted potatoes + fried egg + sautéed kale + avocado
I’ve been either going out or to work early for a lot of lunches lately. I don’t know… I can get higher calorie options there, without having to think about it. It’s just easier that way, you know? Since my remount of motivation, my first “goal” was to give in to my craving for wraps. Like my massive craving for toast. Hmm… seems to be a connection there. So, wraps and burgers instead of salads and soups. So delicious. This is my current favorite wrap… battered butternut squash + kale + beet sauerkraut + lots of avocado + lots of creamy jalopeno lime sauce.
Something else I’ve been learning…. I am SUCH saucy person. No matter the amount of sauce already on the burger or wrap, I always ask for some extra on the side. I just need that extra bit of dunking to really lather it up.
Bedtime snack….which is so rare these days as I am literally never at home at night anymore. Sigh. My beloved bed time snack... is the last of the blueberry banana muffin tops I made from athletic avocado with a cup of chaga mushroom apple cider which I got from work. I don’t really do beverages, so that’s something I’m trying to slowly move into my dietary intake a bit more. It’s pretty hard to say no to a homemade apple cider steamed with organic, Ontario chaga mushroom for all its antioxidant and healing properties! How cool is that, eh?

Anyone else craving carbs right now like nothing else?
Anyone else find they often have a repeat of “breakfast” foods when at home all day?
Are you saucy? Do you like extra sauce?
