So Fresh & So Clean Clean

Hey guys!

Ok, so who has that song stuck in their heads now? ;)

Well, I just thought I’d go ahead and crank up some tunes…

Because it’s time to parrrrrrrtay!

Be sure to head on over to Peas & Crayons and show our the queen of our weekly shenanigans some comment love! We love you Jenn!

This week marks the second in our “Summer Staples” theme for the month and it is definitely alive in this post. I just can’t get enough of this season’s fresh produce from my local farmer’s market!

I got this morning started off (slash ended for me since I’m now a professional zombie) right with my newest g0-to breakfast…

Laura’s 150 Cal Protein Cake!

I made mine with a combination of my favorite GNC powders and topped it a drizzle of coconut flour sauce (coconut flour thinned with water), fresh cherries, and a few coconut flakes!

Protein-packed PERFECTION!

After that, I was off to dreamland!

Once I woke up, I chugged some water and hit the gym for a quick cardio and abs workout. I prefer working out on an empty stomach, but let me tell you, the drive home felt RIDICULOUSLY long!

Fortunately, that gave me just enough time to think about what I wanted for lunch. By the time I pulled into the driveway, I knew exactly what I wanted…

RUNNY EGGS!

I call this my summer breakfast sandwich extraordinaire!

toast
cottage cheese
sun-dried tomato spread
steamed kale
perfectly fried egg with runny yolk
bell peppers
tomato slices
fresh ground black pepper 
toast 

Mmm mmm MMM!

On my way to the hospital a few hours later, I enjoyed one of my Coconut Cranberry Protein Bars with a much-appreciated although un-pictured cup of coffee! ;)

You guys SERIOUSLY have to make these annnnd…

And as if I didn’t cram enough fresh veggies into my glorious breakfast sandwich, I made myself a mother of a salad for dinner that was nothing short of spectacular…

kale
cottage cheese
sprouts
okra
bell peppers
tomatoes
red onion
fresh ground pepper
nutritional yeast

Don’t you just wanna dive right in?

But wait, that’s not all!

What’s a ginormo salad without a bit of crunch?

I felt like I won the lottery the other day when I found one of my favorite flavors of Pop Chips on sale at Kroger…love love love that spicy flava!

And now, for your musical pleasure…

Ladies and gentlemen…OUTKAST! ;)

 

Oh the memories! :D

  1. Mmmm runny egg, and your version of Laura’s cake looks PHENOM! Love!

  2. I saw the cake pic on Jen’s site and was all “heyyyyy… that looks familiar…” ;)

    Love me some runny eggs. And Outkast, whom I bet eats eggs super runny, gangsta’-style.

  3. Kristina says:

    I LOVE Outcast.

    and that sandwich, and that protein cake…

  4. Lauren says:

    Ahhh, there’s the cake I’ve been reading so much about! I think I really need to try that! I love runny eggs! The yolk makes a great ‘sauce’ for just about any veggie you mix with it. Haha! I don’t think I’ve ever heard that Outkast song! I’m pretty much stuck way back when with ‘Roses’….that was the shiz!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ok, so I seriously had to Google “Roses”…how could I forget about that one?! Haha

      And mmmm, yolk sauce! You’re making me drool! ;)

  5. wow that breakfast sandwich sounds insanely good!

  6. yummm runny eggs sound so good right now :)

    Happy WIAW :)

  7. Have to give that protein cake ago especially with the cherries!!! i have an abundance of them having gone cherry picking on Monday night!

  8. I love your eats, especially the cake and salad! Happy WIAW!

  9. Jessie says:

    I’ve neverr had runny eggs on a sandwich. Is it really as delicious as it looks??

  10. the fresh cherries look amazing! i never have the patience to actually prepare cherries for toppings, etc. i just fill a bowl with them & go to town.

  11. Your food always looks sooooo good!

  12. hey emma (stone) .. i think its amazing that you can pull off all those night shifts … admirable! they are certainly one thing I am not looking forward to in residency. your eats all look delicious but whats new with that, right? happy wiaw xx

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, Emma Stone? Really?! I LOVE her! You just made my day! And the thing about nights…you just gotta fake it…till ya make it! ;)

  13. Piled high sandwiches and loaded salads – oh yea! =)

  14. I seriously need to make that protein cake. :)

    PS I’m stealing Laura away from you. :P

  15. I used to work overnight too…it definitely screws things up! Are you able to sleep for a full 8 hours after your shift?

    And I want that sandwich. Like now. :-)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      On a good day I can. Usually, I’m out for about 6 or 7 at the absolute most but of course that’s with waking up a few times. It’s definite progress though from when I started and couldn’t seem to sleep more than 4 or 5. Yeah, those were rough! I’m sure I could sleep more soundly if I tried taking something and although I’ve taken melatonin a few times before (and it helped) I just really don’t want to become dependent on something to sleep normally, ya know?

  16. Laura has the best recipes! That protein cake looks awesome! Your cranberry protein bars look amazing! Checking out that recipe now!

  17. Ashley says:

    You always make me so hungry! n_n I wish I could borrow you for a few weeks. I need a personal healthy chef! :)

    PS. Do you have a button!? I would love to add it to my sidebar and show love! :D

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ugh, sorry girl, I meant to respond to you sooner! I HAD a button and now I have no idea where it is! Lol! Let me get with Jenn and see about getting it back up (she’s the brilliant mind behind all my buttons and my header! :))

      And I’d be MORE than happy to be your personal chef! Are you kidding, with my shift right now, I’m just LOOKING for a reason to quit my job! LOL

  18. I love runny egg sandwiches, but yours seriously takes them to a whole new level! Sun dried tomato spread? Steamed kale? Cottage cheese? That sounds like one helluva sandwich!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Yes ma’am!! And I am in LOVE with the sun-dried tomato spread! Picked it up on a whim at the store the other day and the jar’s already half gone! Lol

  19. Can you please come make me salads? Yours always look incredible, mine just look sad :(

  20. kolya says:

    I’m a new reader and I was hooked after your post about scrubs (I wear them even when I’m not working), your This/That post (I pretty much agreed with most of it) and now just loving your posts and your pics are hands down (or up?) awesome.

    Thanks!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, you are TOO kind! Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I LOVE hearing from new readers and you Hands up, just made my day!! ;)

  21. Love your build a bowls. They look amazing.
    Huge Outcast fan too. I recognized the song in the title immediately.

  22. For the record, I would like to eat every single thing you ate yesterday. And pretty much every day. You’re a girl after my own heart!
    And yes- that song’s in my head now. Thanks for that.

  23. omgosh, yes, yes! I have to make those protein bars, you’re right :) They look tasty.

  24. I am in love with your entire day. Coconut and cherries are my top flavors right now, I am an avocado addict, and shut the front door… Why don’t we have jalapeno pop chips here?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I can NEVER get enough coconut! Which is so weird since I used to despise it when I was younger! And this was the first I’d ever seen of the jalapeno chips on my turf! I had a friend mail me some before, but now I can finally buy them myself! These and the BBQ are my faves!

  25. Helene says:

    Your Runny Eggs Sandwich looks yummy and I am going to have it for my Sunday Breakfast Lazy Marathon (catching up with the papers mail, putting on only good music, and sipping Chai tea latte). Better have extra ingredients on hand though , otherwise my housemates will eat all of mine. RATS!!!! Your salads look lovely and I bet taste spectacular. Makes my being healthy fun………..

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Sounds like a perfect way to start a Sunday morning to me…mmm, chai latte’s…love love love!

      LOVING salads lately! I randomly threw some blueberries in a salad for dinner tonight and it was amazing! Love contrasting flavors!

  26. I am in love with egg sandwiches lately, and yours looks amazing! I love topping mine with hummus, too:)

  27. Ohhhh my gosh I can’t decide what looks the most delicious!!! I want it ALL.
