A line needs to be drawn.
Lays flavors have gotten out of control. I mean… I can see a Wasabi Ginger chip. I can even stretch it to Mango Salsa. But Cappuccino?! No. One review I read described them this way: “They smell like a tomb, and taste like stale crackers dusted with International Delight-brand instant coffee.”
I’m all for #strangebutgood… but really?!
BUT… this is even worse than anything Lays could ever come up with.
Chicken Wing ICE CREAM?!
This WIAW was bursting with flavor. An overload in a good way. 😉
Read on for my eats, and then check out Jenn’s blog for everyone else’s delicious creations!
My morning cocktail was followed by a muffin that I forgot to picture. I’ve begun going to the gym before work, so I have a small snack. I just can’t eat big that early in the morning.
Never mind that I consider 9a early.
When I was done with my workout, I was ready to EAT. I made an XL protein shake. It was an electric shade of green thanks to spinach, but it was peanut butter flavored. I blended peanut butter protein powder (don’t ask which one – I don’t love it so I’ve just trying to use it up), cinnamon, almond extract, spinach, almond milk, ice… and a (vegan!) Zucchini Banana Protein Muffin. Then I topped it with another 1/2 a muffin. Mmmm… muffins…
I made a Turkey Hummus Salad. Sounds fancy, no? It wasn’t. I shredded up some no-salt deli turkey and mixed in hummus. Then tossed in some sugar peas. Boom.
It was a long afternoon… I bar’d it up. Love the buffalo jerky from Onnit. It’s super-moist. I also really liked this Mojo Bar. The Coconut Almond was really good. I loved that it was just hint of fresh coconut – not like suntan lotion.
Then a dinner-ish snack of a trout salad. I mixed up my Sizzlefish trout with bell peppers, parsley, greek yogurt, nutritional yeast, turmeric, and cayenne.
Working out in the morning means I work even later, so pre-gaming for dinner is a must.
Swordfish was on sale at Whole Paycheck. I roasted it simply with lemon juice, black pepper, and rosemary. Meanwhile, I sautéed shallot, mushroom, and cabbage, tossing it in my healthy BBQ sauce at the very end.
But the BEST part? I made a PERFECT savory falafel waffle. I want to try it once more to simplify the ingredient list before posting it… but it was fluffy and delicious and – most importantly – it didn’t do this again.
I can’t even… kabocha bowl of flavor heaven. I roasted a kabocha. Filled it with greek yogurt, peanut flour, gelatin, cinnamon, toffee stevia, and almond extract. Topped it with bacon sprinkles, actual sprinkles, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Followed by a moment of silence.
It’s hard to believe it’s already September… or that it’s already Wednesday. Hooray for short weeks!
