Alphabet Soup

A is For…

Apples!

Apparently, Honeycrisps are no longer my favorite…I know, I was shocked too! But after months of waiting for my local supermarket to start stocking them for the season, I FINALLY got my hands on some and was sadly disappointed with the too-sweet taste.

But now? NOW I have a new favorite! I picked up a few crisp varieties at the Dekalb farmer’s market over the weekend and conducted a little apple taste sampler if you will…

Ambrosia: waaaaaaaaay too sweet.

Braeburn: mildly sweet and tart.

Pinata: just a hint of sweet but much more tart!

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner folks!

B is For… 

Breaking a sweat!

It seems three days off from the gym and a WHOLE lot of indulgent eating is all I needed to find some motivation. For weeks now I’ve been struggling through a plateau…feeling ho-hum about my workouts and really not getting much out of my time spent at the gym.

So far, I’ve hit the gym every day since Monday and have been surprised with the amount of energy/motivation I’ve had…and just because Friday’s survey reminded me that I don’t do ab work enough, today, I even busted out a power plank…

Yep, I’ve still got it! 😉

C is For…

Cholula…aka, my newest addiction.

I’ve never really been much for spicy stuff, but this hot sauce is perfect…mild with just enough spice to make your nose run if you accidentally get a little heavy-handed with the bottle…oops!

And it also makes for some great contrast in #yolkporn photos! 😉

Savory oats cooked in water, seasoned with nutritional yeast, fenugreek, and fresh ground pepper, topped with cilantro, a perrrrrrfectly fried egg and crack sauce!

D is For…

Different!

Another submission for the Weird Foodie Club: Canned tuna, persimmon, sunflower seed butter, and cinnamon.

And you know what I always say…don’t knock it till you try it!

E is For…

Eggs!

In an effort to clean out the fridge before heading to Atlanta for the weekend, I ended up polishing off the eggs early fairly quickly and was then forced to go almost SEVEN days without a single incredible edible…of course now that I’m back home and have replenished my supply, I can’t seem to get enough!

Besides my latest obsession with hot sauce, I’ve also been loving the mix of sweet and savory this week.

peach pecan jam and on the right, another pita spread with strawberry butter and two hard-boiled eggs with freshly ground peppahhhhh!

F is For…

Fashion?

Saw this ad when I logged into Facebook the other day…

“Experience pure holiday joy with these sassy Christmas tree sweatshirts”

Bahaha! Maybe after a few cups of egg nog, right? 😉

G is For…
