Rep-Eats

The internet is spotty here so I'll make this brief.
Meals have been the same the last couple of days anyway, due to money saving PREPPP so ya ain't missing much.
Breakfast: Banana (sometimes with almond butter, sometimes not)

Snack: trail mix in a 1 oz. spice jar. Almonds, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, raisins

Lunch: Salad of spinach, broccoli, sundried tomatoes, tofu, carrot, and avocado. With Braggs, nooch and cayenne.

Dinner: Veggie miso soup with broccoli, spinach, carrot, and tofu.

Dessert: Bringing back da banana ice cream. With cocoa powder and almond butter blended in, blueberry jam swirled in. It ain't pretty but I forgot how amazing it is.

Annnddd finally, with the internet down I had fewer distractions and finally finished Issue 21 of Marmalade Umlaut! The first one in six or seven months! Let me know if you'd be interested in a copy; I printed up a couple extra.

Hope you all are well. Hopefully I'll be back more regularly soon and will be able to comment on yr blogs.

  1. You do have a knack for putting together vibrant-looking combos. The ice cream looks great — I've been making smoothies with banana, cherries, almond butter and cocoa. So good.

I love that you put the trail mix in the spice jar. It looks pretty and is perfectly portioned :) That miso soup looks really hearty and delicious and yay for banana soft serve! Your additions sound SOOOO good!

  3. That's so awesome that you've done 21 zines! Very cool.

    Great twist on the banana ice cream, putting in the blueberry jam.

    Even if you've been eating a lot of the same, this entire post was very colorful!

  5. I agree with Molly. Even if you're being repetitious, you're eating a lot of colorful foods and that's a good thing. As far as money saving (something I'm trying to do since I only work part time), I did not stop going to Whole Foods, but I go to a "cheap-o store" once in a while stock up on stuff that is unprocessed, but doesn't need to be from a "name brand store." I don't know if you have an option like that where you live though.

    Good luck and happy almost spring!

    1. There are a fair amount of stores around here to pick from; WF is just the easiest to get to. And I'm super picky about produce, eh.
      Happy Spring to you too!

  6. I am really liking your lunch - those carrot sticks lying on top of the salad look so good, actually the entire thing sounds delicious!

    Congrats on finishing your latest issue! Let me know where to send payment: iggydem@gmail.com

    1. Usually I shred the carrots but it's fun to eat them as sticks sometimes.

  7. I bought some almond butter and banana's today! I will def be combining the two and the cocoa powder in the banana ice cream sounds good, I'll be trying that too. I've just got broadband back after a week of not having it, I've missed the internet and blogs!!

    1. Glad you're back. Do try the frozen banana ice cream; it's great.

  8. Every meal looks delicious enough to eat over and over again. Banana + nut butter is a favorite of mine. And your salads always look so tasty. Congrats on another Marmalade!

  9. Almond Butter definitely looks more enticing than Peanut Butter on a Banana. I'll have to switch.

    What is in this edition of M.U.? How do I know if it is worth $3?

    1. Maybe a post explaining where you came up with a $3 price tag is in order.

    2. Usually printing and shipping, plus a profit of 50 whole cents for me! But this is just a rambly issue. Whatev.

  10. Money saving or no money saving, that looks not half bad to me. Miso's always good for what ails you.

  11. Love this & can relate lately. Just bc you're busy does not mean you have to resort to junk.

    1. True! Always be prepared. It should be everyone's motto, from boy scouts to vegans to teenagers in heat to busy people everywhere!

  12. Hey, there's nothing wrong with repeating what you eat. We all do it! LIFE, right? I also think using spice jars to hold train mix is genius. :) (Mine usually get refilled with bulk-bin spices...but still. If I ever get a spare one, I know what I'll be doing!)

    1. I never thought of refilling spice jars from bulk, ha! maybe I should! I just have big bags of cinnamon sitting on the counter.

  14. What a cute idea to put trail mix in a spice jar! I have this trail mix that's in a gigantic bag in my freezer...so not nearly as cute, ha ha. And oh yeah, banana ice cream! Best thing ever. And yay to creativity!
