Where has the time gone? It’s seeming to escape me! Anyway let me get down to business. Where was I? Ah yes, recapping my spring break in Florida!
Lots of overnight oats were had, and my friend even tried it (and liked it!)
She also started putting nut butters in her oats! There’s no looking back now hehe.
I made my overnight oats with something new my parents had in their fridge.
At first when I tried the Wild Wood Soyogurt itself I didn’t really like it. But it started to grow on me, and it definitely didn’t taste funky in my overnight oats. So the oats were soaked in this yogurt with raisins, rose water, and cinnamon. Topped in the morning with coconut milk, pistachios, and a sliced banana.
Packed sandwiches, nuts, and some veggies for the beach.
It was so windy that my sandwich became a real “sand”wich! After the beach we headed to the local discount healthfood store.
I got some new things to try...
I also snagged a can of organic pumpkin puree since it’s rare to find one nowadays. I also finally got myself some of my favorite candies… Ginger People’s crystallized ginger m’mmm. I love letting these soak in my tea. I also spotted the Luna protein bar and I got the flavor that appealed to me the most (cookie dough). It was okay, but I don’t think I’m really into the texture of those kinds of bars. I’m more of a whole ingredient bar lady. All of the other goodies are new to me except for the coconut water.
I also stocked my freezer up. Can you tell I'm a college girl?
My favorite sandwich bread for PB&Js!
My friend couldn't decide which chocolate to get so I made it easy for her and exclaimed at this one! SOOO DELICIOUS!
I just had to marvel at the colors!
I had the leftover curried tofu my mom made, a sweet potato with cinnamon and coconut oil, and a salad with a homemade blueberry vinaigrette. Delicious thrown together meal.
More overnight oats + aloe vera on the side
Toppings: coconut milk, Kashi GoLean Crunch, sliced banana, pistachios, and a strawberry compote with honey
Holy yum! I loved the various textures in this breakfast and the fresh flavors. Strawberries and bananas are a fruit combination that never fail.
I made us a nice lunch before we headed out to go shopping!
This turned out to be so flavorful!
I wanted to fix the tofu so it’d be like orange chicken. I found a recipe that sounded good, then added some veggies and cooked some egg noodles. Then we were out!
I took her to Paul, a french bakery franchise.
Rainforest Cafe can get a little crazy... especially if I'm there!
Let’s just say I had a lot of fun going around the store with the hand puppets they sell. What can I say? My imagination is still going strong.
Tried on an amazing Alexander Wang dress.
We had a very successful shopping trip, and left the mall elated with the "shopper's high".
Check it out!!!
We got home and had dinner.
Mom made rotkohl (red cabbage) with apples, pan-heated parathas, avocado, and I quickly fried some tofu with a Key Lime Ginger sauce.
And while I was in Florida I enjoyed dates (organic on sale for $1!) with the cashew-macadamia butter I made for my mom.
I have to admit, that date looks inappropriate, but I’ll just leave it at that haha. Anyway, I’m still not done recapping my break down in Florida. So hold on to your seats because there’s more to come. I just hope my next post is sooner than later! Next thing you know it’s going to be April already.
