Let’s talk about FOOD!

I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a link-up before! Last week commenced my very first “What I Ate Wednesday” link-up post: “What’s On Your Plate?” and then a personal fave: “Fist Pumps” and I can confidently report I am hooked. Perhaps I’m biased because Jenn spells her name with two n’s like I do, or it could be because we’re both passionate about healthy food..and want to share our finds and creations with everyone!

I have been receiving A LOT of awesome things in the mail as of late, and here is something I am especially excited about:

9-Tray Large-Excalibur with 26-hour Timer!!

This lil beauty is waiting for me in Seattle, and I can’t wait to get introduced! I am already making a list of things I want to make… then I can share the good, the bad, and the ugly with all of you!

Since I’ve discovered dairy-free/soy-free “yogurts” I’ve been ecstatic about breakfast — here’s this week’s selection:

1/2 Bowl of Plain So Delicious topped with Chia Seeds & Goji Berries!
The other 1/2 of Plain So Delicious topped with Chia Seeds, Goji Berries & Chopped Almonds!

The chocolate So Delicious by the way? SO DELICIOUS! I enjoyed it as is, no need for frills. Just a few spoonfuls hit the spot as an after dinner “treat.” I haven’t indulged in awhile and was pretty satisfied over the weekend making it last:)

Mom and I road tripped it to the other side of the island mainly for this…


And of course we had to have lunch, too..

We were SO hungry, our salads tasted phenomenal! I covered mine in turmeric and freshly ground pepper then drizzled some Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar and just a touch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Delish.

What are you eating?

  1. Congratulations Christina! I have a feeling that Jenn couldn't have had a better winner for this giveaway!

    The salad looks amazing. Allan has been eating tumeric for years in a lot of dishes he makes. (Anything that someone claims is good for his prostate or prevents kidney stones Allan will use!)

    Hope you're having a good week love!

  2. Looks like you are eating some good food. Those spring rolls look sooo delicious. I haven't had dairy free/soy free yogurt, but if you like it then maybe I will have to try it.

  3. hahaha! Christina is definitely a lucky duck lately! love that girl! so all your food looks amazing. i have never tried eating a specific diet before but actually ever since meeting Christina and trying Fresh in Toronto, I have been trying to incorporate more Vegan meals. love!

  4. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!! I can't believe I won this! Way to support by new diet, girly! This is going to be perfect. I am trying so many different products and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!! Your food looks absolutely amazing and I want to come and steal your dehydrator. Send me some fruit leather?? Hahaha! I tried banana leather at Trader Joe's in NYC and OMGGGGG I died. Seriously I am so jealous!

  5. I can't wait to see your dehydrator dishes, I'm obsessed with mine. Also, I just heard there is almond milk yogurt on the market? Haven't seen or tried but am now on the hunt!
