Still Kicking Around

HOORAY for the weekend! I am so excited that it has finally arrived. This is the first weekend in quite awhile that we are somewhat hockey free. Not that I’m not enjoying it…I just need a mini break. :D 100_8217

Work flowed along smoothly for a Friday. I enjoyed a few snacks to pass the time: 100_8222 100_8218 100_8219

I was stoked to find blood oranges at the store Thursday night. I love this fruit. Easy to peel, mildly sweet, no seeds. Perfection! And the Kind Bar was friggin outrageous! I’ve seen these pop up in my area more regularly lately but have been a little gun shy to try them. One whiff and I knew great things were to come for my taste buds. The prevailing flavour was coconut. Um…..YUM! I ate it as slow as possible, but it was really hard not to shove it in my mouth. I’ll be trying the other flavours real soon.

The sun was positively shining outside yesterday so the thought of going to the gym just made me feel claustrophobic. I made the executive decision to go home, let my fur babies out on the deck for some fresh air and to just chill for ¾ of an hour. I came back to my desk feeling rejuvenated. It really is amazing what the sunshine can do for you!

My lunch was kinda lame, but I still enjoyed it. “Cheesecake” in a cup! 100_8221

This is about 1 cup of goat’s milk yogurt with a scoop of black cherry/strawberry/blood orange jam. Divine!

I made turkey sausages for dinner using the George Foreman. Easy peasy. I also cut an orange cauliflower in florets and steamed it. Some mango wasabi sauce for dipping rounded out my meal: 100_8223

Looks kinda orange now that I see the picture! LOL! I had a scoop of maple walnut ice cream for dessert, but the flash wrecked the picture. Urgh!

We took in a “real” hockey game after dinner and didn’t get back home until after 10pm…hence no post! I pretty much went straight to bed.

I finally had an almond butter jar empty enough to get some OIAJ going this morning. 100_8228

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • 2 medjool dates
  • carob chips


Why is it, I wonder, that this mix tasted that much better out of a jar? Seriously, now! I guess it may just be the fun of it! :D

We spent almost 3 hours at the rink today for DS’s 2 hour practice + pizza party. I was so ready to go home. Sitting there gave me a crap ass headache. I turn into a sucky pants when I get a headache because I don’t often suffer them. Kudos to all you folks out there who get migraines!

Lunch was a very simple deal. A toasted Ezekiel English muffin topped with some allegro cheese, egg beaters and hot sauce. 100_8229

I chased it with a good cup of blueberries! 100_8230

For once in my life I did not want to go grocery shopping, but I absolutely had to. If I didn’t, the next available time would’ve been Friday and we just didn’t have enough basics to get us through. And wouldn’t you know that half my city HAD to be there, too. Well, it felt that way anyhow! Upon returning and putting everything away I sat down with a coffee and a small bowl of kettle corn flavoured mini rice cakes. 100_8231

Then my hubby got the great idea to mix a chocolate chip cookie mix with a PB cookie mix for chocolate PB cookies. 100_8235

I could hardly wait for them to cool off before eating one! YUM!

We decided to do Thai for dinner tonight. I ordered fresh spring rolls and my favourite, mango salad! 100_8237

This was a nice refreshing meal. And I have leftovers for tomorrow! As for tonight? I’m going to make a tea and watch some tube with the fam. Peace out!

Bye for now!!


  1. Hey Krista! What are kamut flakes? Like oatmeal? The thai food looks amazing! I never know what to get when we go to places like that.

  2. i actually thought your orange cauliflower was eggs at first! LOL!

    and oats in a jar always tastes better...i think you get a bit of extra nu butter than you think when it's eaten in the jar...:)

  3. I'll have to get some blood oranges. It's been years...

    I LOVE spring rolls; perfect dinner!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. what a great weekend dinner!
    i LOVE OIAJ!! it always tastes better to me!

  5. The trail mix on your oatmeal looks fab. I am on a total sunflower+pumpkin seed KICK.

    Glad ya liked the bar!!!!!! I was hesitant to get it for you because they have a certain aftertaste + texture that I wasn't sure if you would like.

    I can NEVER wait for baked goods to cool off...I have burnt my tongue maaaaaaany times :)

  6. last weekend I bought blood orange by mistake and they're sooooo good and soo cool eating them! :D
    Thai food? yes... those rolls look amazing!

  7. yes! I love to see the "oats in a jar" - so fun :)

  8. I don't think I've had that Kind bar yet but it looks awesome! Glad you're finding them around you guys - those things are tasty!!

    Those cookies look delicious! Hope you have a great Sunday :)

  9. Kind bars are my all-time favorite type of bars! I'll have to try that flavor! That Thai mango salad looks phenomenal! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Krista!

  10. Yum your cheesecake in a bowl looks yummy and your thai dinner looks very fresh and lovely!
    Hope your Sunday went well!

  11. Cheesecake in a cup sounds like a genious idea! :-) Although, I usually make a whole one so that I can eat it for dessert all week long!
