I hope you are all having a great week!
I’ll be honest, this week is kicking my arse. Since going back to work last week, I’ve had maybe ONE day of solid sleep and I am finally starting to feel the effects. My back is in knots, my digestion is ALL kinds of messed up, and honestly, I’m having a hard time coming up with anything witty to put at the end of this sentence in true Heather-fashion.
How about I just let my famous photoshopping skills do the talking?
Get yo’ eyes off my Peanut Butter Mug Cake, Dory! 😉
And now, let’s all take a cue from Dory…forget the world…start singing…and wait, what were we doing?
Cereal mix topped with Oikos toasted coconut vanilla yogurt, strawberries, and chocolate coconut peanut butter
Fried egg, cheddar cheese and FROG jam toaster sandwich
Spinach salad topped with cottage cheese, almonds, avocado, toasted coconut, and balsamic roasted strawberries
Trader Joe’s uncured chicken hot dogs topped with sauerkraut and mustard with a side of roasted kabocha squash and ketchup mixed with cinnamon
Banana Chobani mixed with unsweetened cocoa powder, topped with strawberries
Banana Almond Oats drizzled with honey (recipe coming soon!)
Fried egg and cheese toaster sandwich with ketchup for dipping and a side of steamed green beans
Spinach salad topped with smoked salmon, bell peppers and cucumber drizzled in Trader Joe’s Soyaki Island Marinade with a side of Avocado Cabbage Sushi
Cinnamon raisin English muffin with cottage cheese, crunchy coconut peanut butter, cinnamon, and honey
Steamed green beans and my latest obsession, “monster” trail mix
And to end things on a bit of a sweet note…
Strawberry Arctic Zero topped with peanut butter coated popcorn!
Oh yes, such things DO exist…and they are 100% amazing!
Damn THANK you Heather for introducing them to me!
Now scoot on over to Peas & Crayons and keep the drool-fest going!
Just don’t FORGET your napkin! 😉
What’s the best thing you ate recently?
Anyone else as excited as I am about the new Finding Dory movie?
Finding Dory movie??? I didn’t hear of that yet until now!! OMG, I am so excited, I LOVE Dory.
And peanut butter coated popcorn…..only 4 weeks until I am in the States. I probably will ROLL back to Switzerland and have to reserve TWO seats for myself in the plane when I try all these goodies for 2 weeks haha 🙂
I am obsessed by omeletts in all kind of forms lately. The last one I stuffed with dried figs – SO GOOD!
Hahaha! Oh girl, you make me laugh SO much! And I am LOVING all the ideas you’ve been giving me for dried figs! I need to pick some up soon!
Ha Ha Ha, so I literally started laughing at the finding nemo photo at the pb mug cake… and had all the people in Caribou staring at me! Oh well =)
p.s. thank you very much for all the new sandwich ideas. you are just my favorite!!
Could you please a) teach me Photoshop and b) come over and cook for me? Thank you very much – you know I’m paying in Speculoos spread cups ;).
Will you believe I hadn’t heard about the new movie yet? Now, though, I feel like the producers need to hurry hurry hurry up because I can’t wait any longer!
Sorry going back to work has brought quite some unpleasant side effects. Sending positive thoughts over there and keeping my fingers crossed things will even out again soon <3!
Thanks MP! I think I’m FINALLY starting to get a little balance back this week…I think it will help once my PT sessions are over with so I don’t HAVE to be somewhere in the early afternoon (even when I have time to sleep, it’s like my subconscious thinks I’m going to OVERsleep and I end up waking up an hour or two before I have to! Bah!)
And seriously, I’ll do just about ANYTHING for a Speculoos cup!! 😀
Yep I’m so looking forward to that movie!
That avocado cabbage sushi sounds delicious 🙂 Let alone all your other eats I am drooling as we speak!
YUM! All these eats have me drooling at 7 am over here, your mission accomplished!
Sorry to hear work is kicking your butt, no sleep over here either, but I blame the bump, haha! It is hard sleeping when you have a human inside of you, oh the joys! So worth it though, just some nights rough!
Love ya girl!! Happy Wednesday!
Awww, I hope you’ve been able to get a little rest sweetie! Love how you always stay so positive! Hugs to you…and Baby G!
Even with all your woes (and they are definitely woe worthy), your eats still look amazing, and that’s the beauty of eggs isn’t it (aside from your ridiculously good photo skillz): easy, breezy, pornographic; they can’t be beat.
P.S. Keep the green beans coming…you’re mentally psyching me up for this year’s CSA.
Haha! I’m actually picturing you in a ring…with red boxing gloves…going up against a bundle of green beans that are 6 foot tall! Lol
Oh goly that English muffin sandwich looks stuffed with deliciousness. I just love the taste of melted peanut butter on all of those nooks and crannies 😀 And your PBJ twisted Arctic Zero is genius.
I’m excited for the Finding Dory movie. I just hope it isn’t slapped together like some of the previous Disney sequels (hello Cinderella 2, I’m talking to you!). 🙂
with cottage cheese, crunchy coconut peanut butter… WOW! that looks delicious!
I’ve been liking Okinos yogurt a lot lately! I like the vanilla, but now you’re making me think about that that toasted coconut! Looks like a yummy day of eats!
Omg, the coconut is like 27523087 times better than the regular vanilla! So thick and creamy…you’ll LOVE it!
Dory movie? I have not heard about that…how fun! Every single thing you ate looks amazing. Yogurt bowl for breakfast tomorrow and I have that Island sauce from TJ’s, need to try it as a salad topper.
That first pic is just brilliant. So is the English muffin. Why don’t I ever think to putt it on my muffins?! I just make quesadillas. This mic change. And now I’m really sad I already started breakfast. Yes, my mind is this scattered today. Is it friday yet???
Yep! Definitely have me drooling! Cottage cheese + crunchy PB is amazing! I hadn’t thought of ketchup + cinnamon but oh man that sounds good! Balsamic roasted strawberries…you had me at balsamic! 😉 avocado and PB popcorn?! Can you just send me all your eats in a big package? Awesome, thank you! 🙂
Banana CHO with cocoa and strawberries?! WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS MYSELF?
Haha I love your photoshopped picture! It’s been ages since I’ve seen Finding Nemo – I need to watch it again before Finding Dory comes out.
Also I just bought the Chobani banana and Oikos toasted coconut in the US yesterday and I’m so excited to try them! 😀
The best thing I ate recently… well I ate a whole lot of awesome things on my road trip this past week, but the most recent thing was a brie and apple grilled sandwich with a kale and Brussels sprouts salad, which was amazing!
Mmmm, that sandwich sounds incredible! I’ve yet to try brie warm! I’ve only had it chilled and at room temp, but I hear it’s like a million times better when it’s all nice and melty!
Have you tried the Oikos yet?! I know you’re gonna love it!
Definitely drooling, yum! Especially over all the coconut peanut butter! Love that stuff but decided to give up nuts for a few weeks to see how my body reacts to them.
Finding Nemo is such a great movie! We need to buy that one since evidentially my son watches it at the gym daycare and loves it as well. He’s always talking about memo!
Oh really? Have you been having issues with nuts lately?
Yes 🙁 I was eating so many! Nut butter for breakfast, mixed nuts with dried fruit for snacks, nuts on my salads at dinner and apple with nut butter for a night time snack. I was noticing some more than normal leg swelling with the warming weather and water retention. I retain water more than the average person all ready but the leg swelling was a little much. So I cut them out completely for a few weeks and am now slowly adding a little in here and there. Feeling much better so I’ll be eating them in major moderation for awhile! Such a bummer because I’m nut butter obsessed!
Oh wow! I had no idea they could cause water retention! Hmm, looks like someone could use a jar of COOKIE BUTTER!! 😉
mmmm everything looks so delicious!
Oh my gosh woman!!! I have to find those EB PB Popps!!!!
And seriously, I opened your post with a two year old standing next to me, and now all I hear is “Nemo! Nemo! Nemo!” times a thousand! Hahaha.
Yes, I’m just as excited. Maybe more. Don’t test me.
Love you. Hope your tummy feels better soon. Your creations look beautiful, as always. And your oats (the almond ones) make me feel like you made them just for me. I made a walnut version this morning for breakfast. My partner in honey crime. Honey crime? Yes, there is such a thing…now. 🙂
Honey crime! Haha! LOVE it! How on EARTH did we go so long convincing ourselves that honey was the devil?! Life is so much SWEETER on the other side! 😉
Did I tell you I found the PB Popps at Whole Foods? But they were like FIVE DOLLARS for a little bag! I think I’m gonna look online and see if I can track down a coupon or something…because I’m cheap! Lol
Oh girl, I’m most definitely drooling. How are you always eating the most amazing things?! If I could just borrow your creativity for a day, well… then I probably wouldn’t want to give it back 😛
Sorry to hear about the lack of sleep, lady! That definitely messes with my ability to digest food and come up with creative things to say. My sleep has kind of been all over the place too and… now I don’t know what to say 😛
Haha, awww! Gotta hate it when those sleep-deprived brain cramps come in! Hope you’ve managed to get a little rest and those brain waves are back to where they should be! xoxo
Your Photoshop skills are totally killer 😉 Btw since you added the new “Share” button that shows up on the right side, I no longer can use your scroll bar. Like, I can’t click on it and drag it down to go down to the bottom of your page. I can scroll using my mouse scroll thingy or when I click the down arrow but I can’t click on the bar. Just wanted to let you know!
Hmmm…That’s weird! I’ll look into seeing if I can change it to the other side of the screen! Thanks for letting me know girlie!
I hope you feel better soon! Sleep is so underrated, and a good sleep (or a month of it) cures a multitude of ills.
All your food always looks so pretty! Peanut butter coated popcorn…wowww!! Sounds delicious.
Dory is definitely wanting a bit of your mug cake 😉 I’d watch out!
Cannot wait for the new film to come out..I loved Finding Nemo so I’m sure Finding Dory will be just as good!
Oh man you have some unique eats this week! Roasted strawberries? Crazy!
Omg, seriously?! Roasted fruit is the BEST! It gets so unbelievably sweet and has such a depth of flavor! You should try it sometime! 🙂
Great looking food! I want it all 🙂
Your toaster sandwiches look unbelievable! There is nothing better than combining a fried, dippy egg with toast and cheese! The addition of jam makes it even better.
Hi Heather, so hope life settles down for you soon! Hang in there! However, even if you aren’t quite feeling yourself, your post still makes me smile! That photoshopping is freakin’ awesome!! Big hug!
Aww, thank you Roz!! Big hugs BACK!!!
Okay- stop it with your perfect photography already…you’re making the rest of us look bad! haha.
Of course, I’m drooling over everything…
I am absolutely thrilled about that movie. I need to watch Finding Nemo again soon!
Ketchup with cinnamon mixed in? That is definitely a new combo to me. Very interesting . . .
Smoked salmon . . . I havent had it in ages, and looks delicious. I must add this to my grocery list next week. 🙂
Yep, just a little “what the heck” moment! I usually roast my kabocha squashes (or sweet potatoes) with cinnamon and then dip them in ketchup but I went plain Jane with this one…it just made sense! Lol
Yes, I confess – you had me fully drooling… up until that salmon appeared. lol! I’m not a huge fishy fan, although I did love the pic of Dory – & you have mad Photoshop skills girl! All of your pics are so gorgeous too! 🙂
I seriously want to eat EVERY SINGLE MEAL on this page right now! There is too much goodness for words on this page!
lately we have been loving anything that has avocado in it!! a little obsessed lately haha
I was leaning toward the egg and jam combo for my sandwich last night but went with almond butter and jam at the last minute. Now I will definitely have to have another sandwich soon and get some yolk porn going…as I type this I realize I have really never taken a yolk porn photo since I tend to make a lot of omelettes…I need to branch out into the egg world a bit more.
Heck yeah…branch out…embrace the (egg)porn lifestyle…it’s hot…it’s steamy…it’s deeeeeeeelicious! 😉
All of your eats look delicious!
Heck yea I’m excited for the movie! I think your first pic just got me even more fired up too! (Perhaps you should work for Disney marketing… 😉 )
Where can I get coconut peanut butter? Yum!
The brand is Earth Balance. You can find it at Whole Foods and some Kroger stores if you have those! It’s the best!
Soooo stoked about finding dory!! Love kid movies so much 🙂
And seriously why do I even bother coming to your blog when Im hungry?! Good heavens child you have me drooling all over the place. And after you instagramed it I totally went and made the rice cake, jelly and scrambled egg combo. HELLLLO delicious. I think it might be my new favorite post weight lifting snack 🙂
Love you and your beautiful self!!
Haha! Aww, I love you too, babe! And seriously, I can’t believe I never thought to pair eggs with rice cakes before…especially since I’m a total freak and absolutely LOVE rice cakes! Have you tried the buttered popcorn ones? Ahhhh-mazing!
Where can I get my hands on some of that?!?! Oh wait, nowhere, because Canada has NO EFFING FOOD. Gah.
The best thing I ate recently… well, I just got back from a long weekend in the mountains, and all I did was eat. I’ve realized that I basically just go on vacation to eat all day. Hahaha.
Some foodie highlights were crab claw meat sushi, pan seared trout with bacon, shallots & potatoes, and some insanely good vegetarian fare in Banff – falafel salad, a burrito that was loaded with 6 different kinds of beans, nuts, guac, salsa, strawberries. It’s a “STRANGE BUT GOOD” restaurant – they basically just put the entire contents of the restaurant onto a plate and make it work. We can go there when you eventually move to Canada to marry me. <3 <3 Hahahaha.
Oh! And I invented the best boozy drink EVER – I mashed up some watermelon, then added vodka, chopped mint & a dash of salt. YUUUM.
Awww! Well, it’s from Earth Balance if you can look into getting it online…maybe iHerb? Or I could just bring some with me with me…would a jar of peanut butter be a good sub for an engagement ring? Oh and I guess we should make sure that Court’s ok with sharing! And seriously, food is what vacation is for isn’t it? And I’m still drooling over that burrito pic you posted! I need to start my own strange but good restaurant…in Canada of course! 😉
Omg, I’ve GOT to try that watermelon drink!!
Your oats are making me hungry, Heather and I just had lunch. Haven’t had oats in a while…need to get cooking!
You definitely had me drooling, girl. I kept going ‘I like that’, ‘I like that’, ‘I really like that’. Seriously everything looks so good.
Hahaha! Mission…ACCOMPLISHED! 😀
I’m LOVING all of the sweet and savory combos you’ve eaten – that’s definitely my favorite combo!
Can we go see the Dory movie together?? I’m not so sure the hubby will want to go to that one. lol!
By the way… your food always has me drooling!
I hope you are getting some good rest now. xoxo
Of course! Especially since when I mentioned how excited I was to the man-friend, I’m pretty sure I saw his eyes roll a bit! Lol
Spinach and strawberries together are hard to beat. All of your meals look delicious, though…I especially like the green beans and trail mix together. 😉
I love Artic Zero but sometimes it upsets my stomach… definately have to eat it with portion control!
I’ve only had it upset my stomach once when I ate a whole pint…usually if I keep it to half or less at a time, I’m good!
You definitely had me drooling!! 🙂
You really do have some of the best food pictures out there! I’m always super jealous and hungry right after 🙂
Haha! Aww, thank you Kaitlin! 😀

So…I’m just going to bring you home with me after Blend and you can cook for me? K? Thanks.
I want IT ALL.
Funny…I was just thinking the same thing about YOU while I was catching up on your posts last night! 😉
