Roasted veggie wrap

I made these on Saturday and they are more amazing than I expected. I adapted my recipe from this one. I'm disappointed I forgot to buy wraps from Superstore but had to settle for the smaller ones the convenience store in my building sells.

Going vegetarian

Hello everyone, I've been pretty quiet on here again because I've been fairly busy with my social life and I pretty much eat the same thing most of the time. My cousin and her boyfriend went vegan last month and are loving it so I decided that I want to work my way to being vegan. It's too drastic of a change for me so I decided to try being vegetarian first.

Quinoa salad and hummus

I was at Costco yesterday to return some fuzzy (moldy) avocados and I wanted to pick up some hummus. On my way to the coolers I walked past their pre-mixed salads and saw this quinoa salad. I know it's more cost efficient to make it myself but I wanted something quick.

Incorporating more veggies

Even though I'm eating more carbs I've been aiming to eat more vegetables. It's amazing how good my body feels when I eat more veg. They're nutrient dense and it's hard to go over calories if you're eating mostly vegetables since they are low in calories.

More carbs :D

It feels like I write this every other post but really, my diet has been all over the place again. I failed to meal prep last week and I ate a ton of candy. I've been logging most of my food in My Fitness Pal but I end up stopping halfway through the day  because I know that it's going to be over.

Monster cookie bars

I'm on a baking kick apparently. I told my slo-pitch team that I would bring cookies for our game on Tuesday so I made the survival cookies I just posted but they're too good to give away. So I found this recipe and I had to make it. As stated in the other post most times I cut the sugar in half in recipes. This is one of those recipes.

Survival cookies - a healthier cookie

I made cookies the other night thinking they were going to be for my slo-pitch team but I gave some to my parents and the rest have found a home in my freezer where I've been eating 2-3 a day.

My new lunch bag

I bought a new lunch bag last week. I have a few but they stink from stuff leaking and one of them turns stuff onto the side which is likely what's causing the leaking. My friend and I stopped in at Walmart and Superstore before heading home from camping on the search for umbrellas. I lost my good one a few weeks ago and she has a wedding to go to today and rain is in the forecast.

Two weeks of vacation!

If you haven't noticed, I love summer. I love the heat, and HOT days. Tomorrow marks the end of my first week of vacation but I also have next week off. I started the weekend with a friend who came to visit. We went for dinner and played tourist, it was a lot of fun.

Spicy (not hot) chicken stir fry

I got home from camping today and wow did I eat... and drink, a lot of calories since Sunday. I got some biking and hiking in but with the snacking, staying up late, and drinking I was still at a caloric surplus. Needless to say I'm not feeling very great. So I bought some frozen veggies while looking for an umbrella (it's been raining her the last 2 days).

I called it spicy stir fry because it doesn't use the 'traditional' sauces, spices, or herbs that most stir fries use. This one has cumin, paprika, and chili powder.
