Mixing it Up

Just like I can't resist cereal on sale, when Van's Totally Natural Wheat, Egg, and Dairy Free Waffles are BOGO - I buy them.  Served with pb and maple syrup.
Taken to work for lunch: AFR's Braised Cabbage with Seitan:
Also taken along for an afternoon snack:
A different photo of the beloved burrito bowl from Chipotle.
Black beans, brown rice, corn salsa, red salsa (not the tomato one - the hot one), guacamole, and lots of lettuce.  This bite was totally staged - it's not normally this pretty. ;)

Who's ready for a vacation?!  Where are we going? When do we leave?

  1. How are you feeling? Better I hope!

    Great looking meals! That waffle looks AMAZING!! How did you like the blueberry Amande? I've been hit or miss with their flavors... and it's been so long I can't remember which ones I liked and which I didn't! That Chipotle bowl looks so delicious, your staged bite looks perfect! ;)

    Ugh I'm ready for vacation... instead I have to go in for Jury Duty tomorrow. UGH!

    1. I think I'm back to 100% as of today, finally! Thank you :)

      Amande was an impulse buy (on sale, naturally), I bought three flavors: strawberry, blueberry, and coconut. I ate the coconut today, and I think it is my favorite. I probably won't buy them all of the time, but on occasion would be good!

      I'm trying to try different shots throughout the day, I'm glad I have the "thumbs up" of a professional photographer!

      I hope Jury Duty went quickly! Bring on the vacation!

  2. I hope you're feeling better, too!

    I'm like you with waffles- when I see the Nature's Path (I think that's the brand...) hemp ones on sale, I get a few boxes. Love them!

    Such a great shot of the bowl! I love creative shots like that. :)

    1. Oh! And yes, totally ready for a vacation. Mike & I have a trip planned at the beginning of May, but that seems SO far away right now. ugh.

    2. Oooh, a May vacation sounds wonderful! I only have another quick trip to Kansas on the agenda, but I would love to go somewhere new. Hopefully I can make something happen!

      Thank you, glad you liked the picture. Your photos are always amazing, I have a lot to learn!

      Feeling much better, thank you!

  3. Waffles - just what the doctor ordered! Fancy posting some over here?!

    That Chipotle bowl is also looking pretty darn good. Guacamole is like vegan crack!

  4. Breakfast and the Cabbage & Seitan look very delicious. Great idea on the Burrito Bowl pic. I'll try that next time.

    1. I figure a burrito bowl always looks the same, why not change the way you have to see it? Ha! I would recommend the cabbage and seitan, I bet you'd love it.

  5. Oh, I had that amande flavor the other day - what did you think? I wasn't the biggest fan; it was almost watery and bland but I usually like blueberry flavored yogurts. Oh well.
    I too am a sucker for sales. In part of my trying not to spend so much (a total fail today) I keep trying to remind myself that saving 50% is still spending 50%. But you have to have yr fun where you can, ya know?
    As for vacation, I realized last month I had 9 days to use or lose before April 10th so I scattered the days and I'm off work almost as much as I'm at work this month! Ha! Unfortunately, it's a staycation and I'm going to spend as much time as possible finding an apartment and preparing to move. But it sure will be nice to not be at work.
    Hopefully you'll get a break soon, too.

    1. The coconut flavor is definitely the best one. I wasn't nearly as impressed with the other flavors I tried! You are so right - I only purchased them because I would have bought cereal, so I'd have to see the price breakdown to see if it was really worth my while. :)

      I will cross my fingers that you find an apartment soon!
