as seen in blogs

So I’ve been seeing millions of these things (and variations on these things) in the blog world, and decided it was about time I made my own. I give you my variation on the crack wrap.


Had no Flatout, but had Trader Joe’s whole grain flax tortilla (in my opinion, the best wrap there is). Had no hummus, but had chickpeas, which I mashed. Added sharp cheddar.

And for my personal twist, chipotle salsa :D Cause really what is not improved by that?

Plated up with apples, carrots, and PB (carrots and PB are also a combo I never in a million years would have thought of without food blogs). DSCF3080

Vain attempts to capture the interior texture:


Here’s what it comes down to: crack wraps are aaaaaaaaaaaaaawesome.

Another thing commonly see on the blog world:


I have very little patience for the 100 calorie snacks, but I liked that this one was on sale (left the sticker so you could see- fitty cents is hard to beat) and filled with surprisingly wholesome things.

It was also a dec size:


And it was actually GOOD! It’s really more of a proteiny snack than a carby snack- the top ingredient (after sugar, obvi) is soy flour, and there’re also eggs and whatnot. But it was filling and comforting and dense and nice.


Finally, two darlings of the blog world united in blissful harmony- Oikos and persimmons, heck yes!

I’ve decided the best way to describe persimmon is “pleasantly slimy”. Cause texturally, the best way to describe it is… slimy. Like, it’s slimy! And yet, you love it!

Today’s lunch included another bloggie hit- gliding calm tofu, made with equal parts sesame oil, Sriracha, and honey.


Also had some orange slices (only ate half- not sweet at all! Lame) and a pumpkin muffin


Apparently I like the color orange?


With yogurt, for my growing lady bones, and a big glass of water, to rehydrate after the gym (for those keeping score, I have now left places and subsequently had stolen an iPod, a winter coat, and a water bottle) due to lack of water bottle.


I won a freakin’ giveaway! Linda, who writes one of my faaaaaaavorite blogs, One Scoop At A Time, held a giveaway for awesome kitchen goodies and free food and I wonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

I am now the proud owner of a 6 month supply of Bertolli frozen meals, a stainless steel skillet and, for sure the one I’m most excited about, an ADORABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY KITCHENAID COUNTERTOP OVEN. Stoked stoked stoked!

I would also be remiss if I didn’t tell you to check out Linda’s blog. It makes you desperately want to move to San Francisco. Ideally, to her kitchen.

I'm so obsessed with wraps! Can you believe that I've NEVER found flat out wraps for sale here? WTF?!

CONGRATS! I never win anything :) I like to make pizzas on those wraps. Just put your toppings on and toast it in the oven. So good.
