I love being an adult don’t get me wrong.

Sure there are times when I miss my college care free days, but something about actually having responsibilities is gratifying.

And what was life before being 21? I don’t know.

No secret I love my beer.

And like I mentioned in my last post, I love Halloween, but it’s a holiday that makes me miss being young. Being able to actually enjoy the holiday, dress up, go trick or treating, or even just making fun snacks for parties. Life now is just too busy, too stressful and I am just so dang tired.

So with the holidays coming up I wish I had some fun tasty new recipes to share with you, but honestly I just don’t have the time.

So for What I Ate Wednesday you are stuck again with my mundane day to day eats.

But it’s better than nothing right?

Only having one day off work really makes my breakfasts boring. I’m not shy about the fact that sometimes I have a simple PB&J multiple times a week for breakfast.

So when the bittersweet moment of an empty nut butter jar presents itself, I get an initial wave of sadness because my beloved nut butter is gone, but it’s soon followed by the joy knowing I can make OIAJ.

I’ve been keeping my oat mixes simple lately. This batch actually had a mix of a bunch of random grains to try and bulk up the nutrition a bit.

It was a mix of rolled oats, quinoa, buckwheat and chia seeds.

I also kept the flavor profile simple by just adding some vanilla protein powder, vanilla stevia and of course my overload of cinnamon.

Topped with my mandatory frozen banana, hemp hearts, sliced almonds and a few raisins.

I got very lucky this week though in that I had two empty nut butter jars to use.

Win!

The simple fact that the oats were in a PB Crave CoCo Banana jar makes it epic enough, and thank goodness for that, because the mix inside was a little boring.

I tried to dress it up with some local farmers market granola, but the peanut butter stole the show on this one.

So after my delicious breakfast’s of OIAJ, it made me realize how sick of having sandwiches for breakfast I was.

So I decided to switch it up a bit.

I use to have my powercakes for breakfast almost every day and like most of my ruts got sick of them and moved on to a new breakfast rut.

I decided to bring the powercake back!

But with a green twist!

I added kale to my original powercake base, filled it with some melty peanut butter and Click protein frosting then rolled it up into a nice little powercake roll.

This was so good, I decided to make another one the next morning.

My first powercake roll was a bit on the thin side, so for this batch I added a little bit of coconut flour to bulk it up a bit.

Worked perfectly and was amazing topped with my homemade banana coconut butter.

Carbs. Veggies. Healthy Fats. Protein.

A very complete and delicious breakfast.

I’m still trying to make myself switch it up for dinners.  I have made some tasty meals, but they sometimes just don’t come out as pretty as they taste.

I almost don’t want to post this picture with how non appetizing it looks, but I assure you, it tasted amazing.

I’m trying to use up items I have in my pantry and saw package of the Trader Joe’s spicy seaweed salad. I am addicted to authentic seaweed salad, but this is a nice switch up when I want something a bit spicier. And cheaper.

I then took a package of tuna and used a little bit of the seaweed salad sauce and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos and cooked it in a skillet for a few minutes.

Ugly I know, but it was delicious.

This really made me want sushi though. (but when don’t I want sushi) And thanks to Jenn who just posted an amazing how to make cucumber rolls, I just had to try it myself.

I tried really hard to cut the cucumber correctly, but it just didn’t happen. I was so close.

So these turned into cucumber sushi boats.

But they were still delicious and that’s all that matters right?

I made a spicy tuna mixture of tuna, sriracha, dulse flakes and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, added some carrot strips and then drizzled it with my spicy thai peanut sauce.

May not be in roll form, but like I said, it was delish none the less.

So even though being a busy adult makes holiday’s less fun and I can’t partake in a lot of the activities I use to, I still have all of you and internet to live vicariously though.

So thank you for that.
