Hola amigos! Thanks a bajillion for all of your birfday wishes and sweet comments on my graduation! I love you guys more than dark chocolate.
…We all know that’s a lie.
The smewthie I made for breakfast before Barre was so freaking tasty that I decided I had to include the recipe (at the bottom of the post). It was gone in like five seconds and I nearly cried. It’s basically a jackpot of antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats from the bluebs, cacao, chia and avocado. Love me some healthy fats to start the day off right!
I lunched on these fantuabulous vegan enchiladas topped with avocado and salsa. I’ve been making this recipe for years. The cashews are key–they’re the reason the filling tastes like nachos! SO creamy. I die. I left out the shrooms this time and used one package of my fave Frontera brand red enchiladas sauce. I also had a little salad with roasted sweet taters, green onions and TJ’s balsamic glaze. It was weird and good.
I made you salted chocolate chia bars and you’re gonna love me for them. Recipe coming soon!
I also had some Mary’s sticks and twigs with hummus. Loving this combo lately!
I was starving before we left to go to dinner so I had some leftover steamed veggies dipped in more hummus as a little appetizer.
My roomies and I went to a hot little Asian spot called Rishi for dinner, which was delish minus the fact that it literally took like an hour for our food to arrive. We first shared an unpictured tuna carpaccio plate, followed by a salmon avocado sushi roll and a veggie roll.
Sushi never really fills me up, so we noshed on stove-top popcorn popped in coconut oil and drizzled with a bit of truffle oil (OMG) while watching one too many episodes of Orange is the New Black. Oh and unpictured salted almond dark chocolate…obviously.
And here’s that smoothie recipe I promised! I’m unorganized.
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- ¼ of an avocado
- 2-3 pitted Medjool dates*
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 heaping tbsp cacao powder
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Okay…thoughts about awkwardly squeezing a recipe into my WIAW posts? Weird? I’m all ears!
