I have to thank Amanda at Running with Spoons for basically giving me the most amazing snack ever.  She has self titled it [i’ve died and gone to] heaven in a bowl, and I must agree.  It was probably one of the most delicious things I have put into my mouth in awhile. So Amanda. I thank you.

this chocolaty goodness was devoured in a mere 2 minutes. if it even lasted that long.

To share the wealth here is the recipe.

. [i’ve died and gone to] heaven in a bowl .

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (i used chocolate)
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

And of course feel free to add whatever toppings your little heart desires

(banana, dried fruit, granola, almond butter)

Directions:

  1. Throw the cottage cheese, protein powder, cocoa, banana, and vanilla into a blender.  Blend until a “whipped” consistency has been reached.
  2. Empty into a bowl and throw on your desired toppings.

Lunch was pretty great too. Not the most photogenic lunch, but delicious.

Panini grilled veggie sandwich on pumpernickel bread with a side of kale chips.

Kale chips are my absolute new favorite obsession.

theres just something about hot panini pressed sandwiches... yummm

.chomp.

On the sandwich:

eggplant bacon, roasted zucchini, caramelized onions, baby spinach, alfalfa sprouts and red pepper hummus.

Dinner was random, but delicious and filling.

sweet potato topped with pinto beans seasoned with cinnamon/cumin/corriander, and topped with nutritional yeast, and some oven roasted veggies on the side also topped with nutritional yeast.

oh no! a piece of broccoli is running away!

 I hope you enjoyed my first WIAW, I certainly enjoyed writing it. And eating it!
