Spicy Thai Bowl

IMG_4531.JPG

There’s something I love about spicy noodle bowls. Especially when home made, so much flavor, so much deliciousness. My cat was definitely fooled when he saw me munching on this (he’s definitely a carnivore)

If you venture on cooking this, it is messy, it is time consuming -but it is delicious. The recipe might not be on point considering I made this over a month ago but. Let’s wing it. There’s also a peanut sauce I made to go on top of it but it didn’t look appetizing after those pictures..

Ever find frittatas are full of fatty components that you just LOVE? But when you’re trying to get abs you’re looking for a lot of food for a little bit of calories? I am! I made a flavorful health conscious frittata with a decent serving size. If you’re still hungry after first slice & you go for a second, you’re still under 300 calories.

Whole Wheat Fruit Waffles

Breakfast Time… It’s really the best course. You can have it for lunch or dinner too. I feel like it’s an excuse to most people too eat dessert in the morning.

IMG_4436.jpg

I’ve always seen this pin about “fruit tacos” on Pinterest. It’s like a cocoa pancake with fruit inside of it, but after reading tons of reviews, too much work for little effort. Therefore, me wanting something sweet & delicious – made whole wheat fruit waffles! (I love my waffle iron, did you know you can bake anything in there almost?) & if you don’t have a waffle iron, you should seriously invest in one.

IMG_4432.jpg

After searching for some good recipes I stumbled upon a good base, made it my own tweaks to be vegan. & It ended up being DELICIOUS! I was afraid with whole wheat flour or without loads of chocolate chips it wasn’t going to turn out good, I was wrong. It’s amazing
