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


  • 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)


  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


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!
