Strawberries + hemp seeds every day when I pick him up from preschool. ♥
So as I mentioned a few Weekend Send-Offs back, my big camera broke right after Beer Fest. Booooooo! I love that camera, and I love the pictures it takes, and it’s hard to be a blogger without a proper camera! I tried to do a full WIAW with just my iPhone, but I wasn’t ever able to get an entire day’s worth of usable shots. Sometimes that little thing takes a great picture, but other times . . . not so much.
So this is a composite WIAW, spanning the past few weeks, and comprised of the iPhone highlights. Hope you enjoy!Fireman eat breakfast on the floor! He was having the standard these days, which is oatmeal + raisins + cinnamon + maple syrup. Plus a fireman suit and shades, obvi.
Preschool lunch all packed up, from left to right: homemade “Better Than Larabar” (recipe coming soon!), homemade kale chips, peanuts + raisins in the snack ball, black beans with olive oil and nutritional yeast, carrots + cucumbers, snap peas. Vegan kid power!
Damian and I had our weekly “State Of The Waits” luncheon. We always order the same thing, the tofu curry noodle bowl, fried tofu for him and steamed tofu for me, add broccoli. Best meal in SB, period.
Another day, another lunch. This was black beans mixed with green salsa, olive oil, and nutritional yeast, and topped with hot sauce. Eaten with chips, quick and easy and healthy and delicious! I eat some sort of variation on this meal multiple times every week. Although . . .
. . . it usually has avocado!
Afternoon tea while grading papers – this smoked green tea was fantastic! // Selfie to take a break from grading, this was the day before I re-dyed my hair.
A mid-week picnic dinner with friends! I was totally lazy and grabbed stuff from the Whole Foods deli (gift card, baby!) – Beyond Meat “classic chicken salad” and Beyond Meat “Sonoma chicken salad”, for comparison (I preferred the classic) plus a bunch of roasted broccoli plus a few sesame tofu sticks for Waits. He mostly just ate broccoli though.We also had coconut water boxes, and you can see my friend’s amazing quinoa-mango-avocado concoction.
At the end of that week I made this amaaazing lunch bowl, with black beans and an entire bunch of swiss chard (steamed), drizzled with Goddess dressing. And can I just say, chard is the most under-appreciated of the greens! It’s soft and salty and RULES. My absolute favorite. Sorry all you kale heads!
And that’s when I learned that Mr Harley loves raw chard stems! Haha, what a silly guy.
Starting the weekend off right, with a wheat grass shot at the Saturday morning Farmer’s Market.
A Saturday afternoon snack – 2 mini artichokes with Vegannaise. I love artichokes somthin’ fierce!
Weekend brunch, cajun tempeh scramble with salsa verde and half an avo. Heaven.
Last Sunday night we made hummus tacos: corn tortillas smeared with homemade chunky olive and garlic hummus, topped with shredded carrots + sun-dried tomatoes + avocado (can you tell I’m an avocado fan? yeah, lots of avo ’round these parts). These were epic!
This is my weekly farm box, which makes me squeal: “I heart you, southern California!”. This is a half share, and it had: a bunch of spinach, a bunch of rainbow chard, a giant head of romaine, TWO bunches of kale, THREE boxes of strawberries, 5 oranges, 2 avocados, 4 mini artichokes, 3 small zucchinis, and a whole paper bag of carrots. I am incredibly grateful to my papa, who gives shiatsu massage to the farmer in exchange for my CSA box. ♥ // My current favorite juice: two beets, greens and all + a carrot or two + 3-4 oranges. So delicious!
And thus concludes this iPhone WIAW party. Next WIAW is the Portland Foodie edition, and my friends, it’s gonna be goooooood!
