Thursday Eats

Mocha Frappuccino inspired smoothie: frozen banana, chocolate rice protein powder, spinach and arugula, coffee, splash of almond milk.

Coleslaw mix, peas, cashew cream (soaked cashews, Italian Seasoning, sea salt, pepper, water).
Farmer's Market vegetables (potatoes, green beans, carrots) boiled, Field Roast Frank.

And that's it, folks!  Good night!

  1. That smoothie sounds so delicious! It looks really pretty too, like a yummy frappuccino minus the guilt! The slaw looks really great (I still love that you use cashew cream, it's such a great idea!) and your Farmer's Market veggies look like a yummy hearty meal.

    have a great Friday tomorrow!

    1. Hi Sarah! Cashew cream is a great way to sneak a little protein into a meal, I'm glad I found the recipe. If only I could find a free Vitamix, so I could make it better and faster. . . :)

    1. Ha ha, thanks Caralyn! I can't take credit for coffee in smoothies - that was all Maud's suggestion!

  4. Now that looks like a smoothie I could get behind; it looks like a mocha milkshake! That slaw looks delish and reminds me that I want to make some of that again. And you can't beat farmers' market vegetables paired with Field Roast. I hope you had a good week!

    1. I'm trying not to feel guilty about eating cabbage when it's not season, but it's just so darn tasty! The Farmer's Market vegetables have been lasting a long time, and the taste great regardless of when I cook them!

  5. You boiled all those veggies?! That's kind of different from the usual steaming/roasting. Also, surprised you cut up your Field Roast Franks like that. I like 'em straight up with Ketchup, Mustard and Relish. To each his own.

    1. We've been experiencing some pleasant weather, and that means my house has been warmer than outside. I was going for the least-temperature output cooking method - ha ha! I probably could've been more creative, but my brain has been the working capacity of a marshmallow most evenings. :) I need to pick up some relish. . .
