Costco Craving Curbed!

Hey All!

Hope you’re having a great day!

My posts have been slightly random lately due to the fact that I am in mid- move. I haven’t been able to cook as much as I’d like to since a lot of my stuff is packed up! I am moving in to my new place on May 1st, so my food and cooking experiments should resume once I’m settled 🙂

My trip to Costco was amazing… I seriously love going to Costco!

Here are some of my purchases:

My all time favorite crackers! Had to get 2 boxes!! I go through these like nobody’s business!

Some Amy’s Lentil Soup – Really like this soup!

Tru Roots Quinoa and a three bean mix that I haven tried yet!

Simply Natural Tomato Sauce:

My FAVORITE purchase! This HUGE tub of hummus!

Falafel Republic’s Falafel: I had to try this after reading Elise’s Review on these!

Almond Breeze of course!

Yummy Guac!

And Finally, some coconut water!

I love the prices at Costco! And their products.

Upon returning home, I made a lovely lunch with some of my Costco purchases!

Falafel, Hummus, Guacamole, Carrots, Crackers

The Falafel was really good flavor wise, a tad dry though, but that’s where the hummus and guac came in! Moistened those Falafels right up! Such a good lunch!

Sorry for the blurry pics! They were all taken with my phone so not the best quality!

What are your favorite Costco purchases?

How’d You Get So Smooth!?

Hey there!

It’s that day again, Monday!

And let me tell ya, I do not mind one bit!

Why, you ask?

Because of this:

The creamiest…

Most dreamiest…

Smoothiest… Smoothie EVER!

Now I know exactly why they are called SMOOTHies….

That smoothie may not look like much- but, it’s much!

Secret ingredient?!

Hint: It’s green!

And no, it’s not spinach!

Rymes with “mavocado” –

Yep, that’s right! There’s avocado in this baby!

I have been reading a few blogs that have posted smoothie recipes with avocado in them, and I decided that I just had to try it for myself!

In the mix:

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbs coconut flour
  • 1/2 of a small avocado
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop almond milk yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

And blend away!

What took it over the top was:

The blueberry muffin i crumbled over the top.

I highly recommend trying avocado in your smoothie if you haven’t!

Avocados are filled with healthy fats (which are highly benefecial!) And boat loads of potassium! (more than bananas!)

Plus they taste delicious…

You can EVEN put them on your face!

And let me tell you all, I thoroughly enjoy putting food on my face!

Pumpkin Puree Facial

And in my tummy, of course!

Speaking of facials – here’s a cutesy cartoon I found:

Haha, I thought it was quite funny!

But I can hardly go a post without talking about chocolate!

I made this recipe yesterday – DELICIOUS!

Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

Are you an avocado advocate? A chocolate lover? Both? Neither?

Have a lovely Monday!
