Wordyless Wednesday + Mission: I Feel Pretty!

Good morning chickadees! Happy Hump Day! How are you?

Today’s post is going to start out wordy, and then it is gonna go wordless. Get ready for a post that is moody mood!

I am so glad you all loved the recipe yesterday! Looks like quick and simple meals are your thang;)

Anywhos, yesterday I came home super tired, so I ate a quinoa-hummus-raisin-balsamic bowl and took a napsky with my neck heater pillow.

I am somewhat obsessed. It smells so. good. I am pretty sure it is filled with magic beads?

Lately my neck/shoulders have been SO tight! Can you say shoulder massage?! (preferable by a tall, dark, and handsome man that likes long walks on the beach, cooking, watching the Bachelor, and giving massages:))

I. freaking. love. naps.

As a student, I have learned to embrace the afternoon siesta with open arms. If you haven’t tried it, you should. Way better than using carbs/chocolate/caffeine to stay awake.

Oh, and remember when a friend of mine thought I was eating a bowl of cheese?

Yesterday he thought that my quinoa-lentil-raisin-balsamic bowl was Cocoa Krispies. When I told him what it was, he thought it was so cool that my food was exotic.

I told him only if exotic means not WonderBread:)

Hahahaha he liked that joke.

Are you eating a bowl of cheese?!

Hi love doves, and Happy Bunny Bunny Day!! How are you? Hope everyone avoided a case of the Mondays:)

I loved all of your responses to my first vlog!! And I was surprised to find that many of you thought my voice was exactly what you were expecting. Glad I didn’t sound like a man:)

And secondly, I have to thank you all times a million from the bottom of my heart. CK hit record-high views this past Sunday night, and it is all thanks to you, best friends! Thank you so much for all of your love and support, you have no idea how much you all mean to me! <3

Anywhos, before I forget, be sure to send in your Mission: I Feel Pretty pictures!!

Tomorrow I am going to put up some of the pictures I have received so far, so don’t wait, chickadees! Feel pretty and snapdiddlydoo a photograph!

Bee tee dubs, my raisin burnout didn’t even last half of the day. I was eating half of the container by 10 AM. I think it is safe to say I need an intervention;)

So, the crazykins title comes from class today. I was sitting and enjoying some cauliflower rice (recipe below:)), and my friend that sits next to me asked, “Are you eating cheese?!”

I pretty much died right there. I was laughing so hard I thought I was actually going to pee my pants.

In order to understand why, you must realize that I can never eat normal portions of anything. I always eat redonk amounts. So picture me eating a GIANT tupperware full of this stuff, coated in tomato goodness and nooch.

So I told him, yes, I was eating a giant tupperware full of cheese.

And since CK has been lacking a tad in the recipe department, I thought I would share this simple, quick, and delicious recipe with you. It is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, and especially great for a student like me:)

Quick and delicious? That’s my middle name;)

Cauliflower Rice Primavera

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Italian seasoning (or thyme, basil, marjoram, rosemary, oregano)
  • Small handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • Nutritional yeast (nooch)

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, pulse cauliflower until it resembles rice. Scoop into a large bowl, and serve yourself desired amount.
  2. Mix together the diced tomato and seasoning. Put on top of cauliflower rice.
  3. Sprinkle with nooch and top with freshly chopped basil. Mix it all up, and enjoy!

This was so yummy, and the perfect way to get in my veggies! (except I never really have a problem with that because I am addicted to all things veg)

It reminded me of a way healthier version of my lazy-girl rice “spaghetti” that I make when I have leftover rice/grains and am too lazy to make noodles Winking smile

Don’t you just love the word “noodles”? Nooooooooodles:)

Edit: After seeing some of the comments, I realized that I didn’t mention the twelve and a half quinoa-hummus-raisin-balsamic bowls I ate with this. By no means is this a complete meal! ‘Tis just the veggie portion. As with every meal, be sure to include modest portions of carbs, protein, and fat.

That is all for today bloggy boos! I have a long day of classes, working out, and hummus-raisin-balsamic bowl eating ahead of me:)

Have a fun Tooooosday!

p.s. Go check out my girl Lee’s bloggity blog post! I am so proud of her, she is spreading the raisin-balsamic loveeee :)

What is your favorite lazy-girl (or La-Z-Boy) meal?

Quinoa, hummus, balsamic, and raisins, all mixed up in a bowl. I think I am in a food rut:)

What is your favorite way to get in your veggies?

Um, eating them every second of the day! And green monsters/salad beasts. My tummy lurves:)

Have you ever gotten questions about food you bring to class/work?

Yessss errday, some people don’t even know what quinoa is…whaddafuh?!
