Hi friends. Today is a day where I’m going to let the food do the talking, as I don’t have much to add as an intro to my recent eats.
Simple is best so let’s get right to it.
Cottage cheese scrambled eggs with sauerkraut, avocado and grapes. I don’t understand this recent sauerkraut obsession but I’m craving it something serious.
So on a related note…toasted Dave’s Killer English Muffin with butter, mashed avocado, sauerkraut and cottage cheese scrambled eggs. Throwing it back to my “most addictive toast ever” days.
The team at Thrive! sent me some of their ready to blend smoothies. I was a little hesitant and waited a long time to try one.
You open up the cup and fill it to the top with liquid. (I used coconut water. You can also use milk of choice.) Then you dump it all in the blender and blend away.
I was super impressed. It tasted great (with no added sugar!!!) and texture was great. Finn enjoyed it too! Thrive! Smoothies are now available at Target. I give them two thumbs up.
Massaged lacinto kale, lentils, feta, pistachios, avocado, feta and Tessamae’s Green Goddess.

Maybe one of the weirdest salad bowls I’ve ever assembled but totally worked. Massaged lacinto kale, lentils, feta, pistachios, sauerkraut, hummus and cottage cheese.
Farmers market salad! Greens tossed in my honey balsamic vinaigrette and topped with avocado, sun gold tomatoes, pecans, cucumbers, mountain apples, dried cranberries and feta.
One-skillet chicken with buttery orzo via Epicurious. The orzo was cooked like risotto so I decided to treat it that way and add lots of freshly grated parm. The be honest, I liked the fennel leek orzo more than the chicken!
So the next evening I shredded the leftover chicken on top and added cherry tomatoes. They were a great addition to this dish.
Welcome to a dinner that my dad wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole. Lentils, veggie burger, sautéed spinach, fried egg, sauerkraut, cheese and Tessamae’s Creamy Ranch. It’s weird but I swear it just works.
I got it together the next night and cooked a real dinner. This is chili-lime mahi with mango cilantro sauce served over coconut cilantro lime rice with sautéed spinach. This is one of the best things I have cooked in a very long time and I will be sharing the recipe in the next couple of weeks. It was also crazy easy!
Same dinner but with roasted cauliflower instead of spinach.
PRO TIP: add shredded cheese to your cauliflower in the last few minutes of cooking to send the deliciousness factor through the roof.
Not much to say to wrap it up other than two things…first, can’t wait to share my recent eats for this week after my farmers market trip on Saturday. They’re off to an amazing start! Second…the winner of my sneaky giveaway from last Friday is comment #11, Carolyn N. who says that Brooks are her go-to sneakers. I will send you an email! 🙂
