Highlights from the week…
Fancy shmancy coffee. I cold pressed espresso roast with vanilla bean powder, brown sugar, and clove.
Honestly though, my current favorite-favorite combo is espresso, ice, and chocolate milk.
Milkadamia sent me a box for review [no cash was exchanged, all opinions are my own, yadda yadda]. Their macadamia nut milk is vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, and gluten-free. The unsweetened vanilla has 50 calories, 1 gram of protein, and zero grams of sugar (1 gram carbohydrate) per 8 oz serving. The milk has almost no flavor, but that is pretty much what I’m looking for in my nut milks because I want them to make my coffee creamy without distracting from the coffee taste. The unsweetened vanilla went perfectly with a cup of iced coffee this week, no clumping or separation to be found.
I also used it in a smoothie with frozen blueberries and coconut chunks, vanilla, maple, and chia seeds.
My packed work eats were all about the Sumo mandarin and plain Greek yogurt combo. With maple or granola.
Snack attack. Peanut butter puffs.
Mexican marshmallow shortbread cookies.
Super sour soda and cola hard candies.
Mini sundae from Van Leeuwen. Cookies and cream topped with hot fudge, almond brittle, and sprinkles.
All of our dinners this week had a Middle Eastern bent, thanks to lots of zhough and copious amounts of olive oil. Like scrambled egg pita sandwiches. Scrambled eggs / sauteed orange bell pepper and red onion / whole wheat pita / zhough. With roasted zucchini.
Pita chip nachos! Sharp cheddar / red onion and cucumber / marinated chickpeas with lemon juice, olive oil, fresh parsley, oregano, cayenne, and paprika / zhough and tzatziki.
Veggie bowls. Sauteed red onion, yellow bell pepper, and roasted eggplant / tomato sauce / marinated chickpeas / zhough and tzatziki / fried egg.
Also pizza. Is there a better food on the planet than buffalo chicken pizza??
It’s almost the weekend! Who has green beer on their Saturday agenda?
