To Much To Handle

Hi Lovelies, How has your week been? Mines been good but I am excited for the weekend. I see the lake in my future :). Lets fast forward to yesterdays snack. I didn't have my usual oats for breakfast because instead I had my Raw Mango Bread and by snack time I was craving them bad! I also had my eye on some cherries the little one talked me into buying the other day at the store so naturally I mixed the two together....
Cherry oatgurt. Tasted great :).

I was ravenous at lunch so I had a big one. (that's what she sai....) I had a leftover Black Bean Turkey Burger on a romaine bun, a side salad with lots of hummus, and a side of sweet potato fries....
Afternoon snack was more Raw Mango Bread with a plethora of butter. I give you Cacoa Bliss, almond butter and I doubled up on the peanut butter...
I'm not saying I didn't go back for more ;)

The man had late appointments so the little one and I had dinner alone. She chose mac and I choose...
A nice Black Bean Turkey Burger topped monster of a salad. On top on the burger is the Raw Beanless Zucchini Hummus I made on Monday. Its a little salty but starting to grow on me.

Between all my meas I did some kitchen and much needed floor cleaning. Dark wood floors and pet hair are not a good combo. Around 9 O'clock I finally got the call from my bestie to come and take what I wanted from her fridge and pantry. She is leaving for Israel for 3 months :( and new Id be more than happy to take some food off her hands. I left with tons of fresh veggies, hummus and some High Fructose Corn Syrup filled stuff that I would never buy but my husband was thrilled to see.

I usually don't go to the gym on Wed. but I just felt like I needed it so I went for a light session this morning. When I got home I really wanted to make Katie's Brownie Batter Pancakes but I forgot I had a doctors appointment and was in a hurry. Instead I had oats in every ones favorite bowl.....
Yum, Yum, and more Yum!!!

Had an apple on the way home from the docs and now I am fixin to cook up some lunch :)

Now, don't everyone wet their pants with excitement over this post. I know it was entertaining and a lot to take in but please contain yourselves!!

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I totally hold grudges. I am trying my darnedest to overcome it though!!


  1. yum, yum, and YUMMMM!!!

    i am so proud of you justine, lol. you are just so healthy! i totally thought of you this morning-- i promised myself last night that i'd wake up at 5 to go run on the beach, and when i woke up i was soooo close to just hitting snooze and crawling back under the covers. but then i thought, NO, i am getting up and i'm going to get MOVING! you can do it in the mornings for your class, and you seem to have a way busier life than i do haha, so i can do it too!

  2. Darn those doctors for standing in the way of brownie-eating! ;)

  3. Hey girl!!!

    I need to make more black bean turkey burgers stat!!! Your salads look amazing!

    Bummer you didn't get to make the brownie batter pancakes :( I wanted to make them this weekend and then remembered I'm out of town. They'll have to wait!

    As far as holding grudges... depends on who it is. Some people I can let things slide... then there are some that I just can't let it go!

  4. Oooh cherry oatgurt sounds like a new fabulous creation. I have the hardest time finding Artisana here--do you have a website/place you recommend?

    Love all your confessions, Justine! I totally relate to all of them :)

  5. Cherry oatgurt sounds good! I have like two bags of cherries so I might copy you :D How exactly did you make them?

    <3 jess

  6. I'm in love with your raw bread! It looks fantastic!! I also really want your SP fries - I bought a SP but it's so humid that I can't justify turning on the oven for 40 minutes.

    Woohoo for free food! Hope your bestie has an amazing time in Israel!

  7. your meals look so good. i was just looking for a good recie for black bean burgers. we must be on SAHM radar, lol.
    p.s. i totally hold grudges too. i try to forgive and forget. i even pretend like i'm over it, but honestly i never let anything go. it's really not fair, because when i mess up i would hope people would forgive me and not judge me on my mistakes.

  8. i love clean eating mag, too! I make so much stuff out of their magazines.

    and i hold grudges, too. I've been getting better, but it's hard sometimes.

  9. I love your salads! Shocking about doctor's getting in the way of pancakes- don't they realise that pancakes are essential to health?!

    Hope your husband enjoys the fructose syrup...sorry about your besti leaving :( will you get to visit Israel?

  10. I've never made your black bean turkey burgers, but they look great! I love the idea of combining an animal protein with a vegan one. At least it helps you CUT DOWN on your meat intake without giving it up entirely.

    Clean Eating Mag is my ultimate resouce! I've been a fan of "Clean Eating" ever since I've read Tosca Reno's book, which is what got the whole shebang started.

    I bad with grudges. I find it hard to forgive and hard to forget.

  11. Hi Justine! I'm experimenting with eating more raw foods myself, I'm PSYCHED to try this raw zucchini hummus!

    And whattya know... my gang choose mac quite often too! ;)
