Vanilla Caramel Mocha Breakfast Shake

July 1, 2020
Ok, so this has probably been done before but I couldn't find anything in my pre-coffee search.
I woke up late, haven't been hungry, but I know I need to eat, but I really really really need coffee before even thinking about my Zoom meetings for the day. 

I also wanted a reason to use the caramel extract I bought for a different recipe.

Chocolate Shakeology (vegan - you can probably use any chocolate protein mix, my other favorite is Bob's Red Mill)
Vanilla coconut milk (I personally hate almond milk).
Coffee
Caramel extract (from Olive Nation, FAST SHIPPING)
Ice
Blend
Take a healthy sip and add more coffee. 

Start Zoom. Sip while on mute and contemplating non-career limiting statements.

Menu Plan Monday: Week ... ?

May 11, 2020

Let's see, I've been home since Thursday, March 12, 2020. I last remembered to publish here ... on April 7. It doesn't feel like more than a month. I mean, we've been eating on a regular basis. Every. Single. Night. And only eaten takeout a few times, less than a handful.

Menu Plan Monday: Week 4 - All The Overwhelm

April 7, 2020
Quarantine
CDC

I'm giving myself a break, because y'all, just like you, I have no more room in my head. I have all the overwhelm.

Last week I decided to put in a Home Chef order and I thought it wouldn't get here until Friday. April 17, but I apparently updated it to arrive earlier, but I also went grocery shopping and filled up the freezer with meat and vegetables in case it was delayed. So now we have more than enough food and I can stop stressing about going to the grocery store for a week or more.

Menu Plan Monday: Week Three - All The Carbs

March 30, 2020


Week Three Formula: PMS + being "safe at home" (silver lining right) + nothing but rain and clouds for a few days = ultimate storm for emo-eating.

Right now, I am going to give my body and brain what it craves. With some veggies thrown in just to keep things moving. And these Bulletproof gels. I've been taking them for a week now, maybe two...

After a week, I can't give a definitive answer as to whether they are working for me or not. Have any of you tried them?

So, here we are in Week 2 and I really should not be complaining. We have it relatively easy here in Massachusetts compared to other states and countries (as of Monday 3/23/2020 morning when I wrote this, who knows what it will be like tonight).

Menu Plan Monday: Isolation - Week One

March 18, 2020
The times we live in ...

This morning, I am already fighting outside induced boredom (so much nicer when I impose it on myself) and made some banana bread. Comfort food - FTW. 
Paleo Banana Bread with Sunflower seed butter - allergen free


Menu Plan Monday: Whole Foods is a Zoo

February 24, 2020
This week I decided to be brave and go to Whole Foods myself instead of having someone else do it. On a Sunday. I thought I had self-control and all that.

The fact that 90% of the people in Whole Foods were shopping for other people made it a lot easier, a person couldn't even walk through the aisles! I had to keep parking my cart and maneuvering down aisles trying to find the things on my list. Bonus, I wasn't familiar with the layout, so it was most definitely not an efficient trip.
