Rest days involve breakfast in bed with my laptop, oatmeal protein pancakes, and pumpkin-spiked coffee.
I was excited to try pumpkin protein goo yesterday afternoon. Mmm. I made another one for today, and now I'm almost out of my one big container of pumpkin... in 1/2 a week. Glad I found something else to enjoy besides pumpkin cheesecake mousse that I had for weeks on end!
I finished my bag of chili limon tortilla chip popchips and stopped by the store for nacho cheese flavor.
I love getting snail mail, which is why I joined Foodie Penpals as well as Fall Swap. A Bulu box came in the mail yesterday... I thought I cancelled it. Gotta check on that.
I mixed the coconut powder with my water today. I wasn't a fan.
I had a wicked chocolate craving. I wanted chocolate coconut water, but let's be real, it's expensive. Instead, I picked up a single serving of Green Superfood in chocolate. It's also expensive. :/
And then late last night, or rather for a couple of nights now, I caved in. I made the first batch of the season: Joy the Baker's super soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. That's a mouthful.
They're so colorful. I didn't have chocolate chips on hand so I used Unreal's unjunked chocolate candies. They bled. My kids at school ate them all. :)
I've been eating so many oatmeal protein pancakes, I thought I should make a crepe.
...the batter is the same, but I used a bigger skillet.
Oh, and besides the discovery of popchips tortilla chips and pumpkin protein goo this week, another exciting food event: the opening of a brand new Whole Foods near my work! I can't wait to visit and share tomorrow! :)
Today was a power yoga day followed by a strange minimum day at work. We got out early so I get to shower and pack all my belongings before work tonight.
What are some new food discoveries you've made?
Have you added pumpkin to your baked goods yet?
