. WIAW … snacking the night away .

August 31, 2011

What’s up my fellow cereal lovers!  Happy Wednesday to ya! 😀

Before we start celebrating the deliciousness that is WIAW, I need to make one more brief cereal mention because, as of today, I have a new favorite to add to my list, all thanks to a package that I received this morning from the ever so sweet and generous L

 

She surprised me with a baggie of my newest addiction after hearing me lament about the fact that I wasn’t able to find it in any of the stores near me…

Obviously, I had to dig in stat

 

… and… Ohhhhh.mi.gosh. I’m in love. Both with L and Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Crunch granola. The chocolate. The crunch. The kindness. EeeeEEEEeee. I’m smitten…

… and now I’m ready to party

When it comes to extremely serious and life-altering cereal vs. oatmeal debate, most people tend to agree that oatmeal wins at breakfast time…

Eggy bananafied steel cut oats topped with almond butter and pudding.

While cereal wins at snack time…

Blueberry Greek yogurt, Kashi Honey Sunshine, puffed wheat, cocoa ginger snaps.

 

… and sometimes even at lunch time. But today, I was feeling a but more savory when the clock struck noon, so I decided to go with something that I haven’t had in a while…

Tofu stir fry! 😀

All I did was saute some pressed tofu and veggies (bell pepper, celery, mushrooms, broccoli) in toasted sesame seed oil and soy sauce, add in a spoonful of sunflower seed butter (this is key) when it was done, and plopped the whole shebang over a bed of noodles. Speedy. Scrumptious. Satisfying.

After letting that digest for a while, and because I was busy with work this morning and couldn’t get my workout in, I decided it was time to get my sweat on, so I headed to the gym for a full body weight session.

As of last week, I kind of gave up following the NROLFW lifting plan. It’s not that I wasn’t getting results, it’s just that I found myself getting bored and not enjoying my workouts as much. So, I scrapped the plan and came up with my own routines based on whatever I felt like working that particular day.

I made it halfway through, though, which is pretty good considering my issues with commitment. One thing I have no problem committing to, however, is my beloved post-workout snack

 

1 cup frozen mango, ½ cup almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla whey, 1 tsp. chia seeds.

Apparently, I also have no problem scrapping dinner and snacking the afternoon/evening away…

Greek yogurt, Kashi Honey Sunshine, puffed wheat, Cinnamon Puffins, trail mix.

 

Chocolate chip cookie dough balls

Random craving: steamed broccoli, hummus, ketchup 😯

 

Teeccino. Chocolate pudding spiked with cocoa powder and almond butter.

Eggified spelt flakes with cottage cheese and jam.

Yeah. I don’t know either. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and honor those cravings. Speaking of which, I’m feeling a banana&AB craving coming on, so I’ll end the night on that note.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful [insert whenever you’re reading this], and I’ll see you tomorrow with the giveaway winner! 😀

Do you always eat set meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Or do you sometimes find yourself snacking the day away instead?

Do you ever experience some bizarre cravings? Some of the weirdest ones I get hit with are ketchup, salsa, mustard, and pickles.

    More often than not my meals turn into continuos snacks – especially if I’m indecisive on what I want. Why choose one thing, when you can have many?! Today I was craving Cool Ranch Doritos like crazy! Not bizarre for most people, but I haven’t had these in years!

  2. August 31, 2011 6:13 pm

    I tend to have set meals, except sometimes the times are all over the place and I will end up having lunch really late or something. I know what you mean about the NROLFW. I got to the end of stage 2, then I decided to start creating my own workouts which I’ve had fun doing and gotten really sore with. I don’t get super weird combo cravings, but sometimes I will have a huge pickle craving that can not be prolonged!

    • August 31, 2011 8:57 pm

      Hehe stage 2 was when I started getting bored as well, and I quit in the middle of stage 3. I still lvoe the book as a source of info and ideas, but not so much the plan.

  3. August 31, 2011 6:15 pm

    most days i have set meals, but there are some days when i just canNOT stop eating the whole day.
    a few days ago i had an insane craving for cheese and salty stuff, which is bizarre because i never crave cheese, or anything salty! and one time i got a craving for eggs with nut butter…

  4. August 31, 2011 6:16 pm

    I gave up onthe book when I started school/started to feel popping behind my knee when I was lifting. So noe I just do whatever my body feels like
    I usually snack my way through the day after lunch. I dont know what it is but I can’t stop munching through the day!

    • August 31, 2011 8:58 pm

      The munchies hit me hardcore after lunch too. I’m okay in the morning, but after lunch, no matter how much I eat, my appetite goes insane and doesn’t calm down again ’till after dinner.

  5. August 31, 2011 6:23 pm

    I have bizarre cravings all the time and they lead to snacking instead of set meals because most of them are so weird that I couldn’t call them meals 🙂

  6. August 31, 2011 6:24 pm

    I love snacking. We are bff…snacking and I. Sometimes I just combine a bunch of delicious snacks and make a meal of it. But usually I snack my face off .. and have a meal too. just on the smaller side.

  7. August 31, 2011 6:27 pm

    Okay this post just took my tastebuds to a whole new level of envy– your Greek yogurt messes are the epitome of incredible YUM!! And heck ya my fellow mango smoothie lovin friend 😉
    I’m excited you’re lovin your own routines instead– I experienced the same droll boredom with nrolfw, but it lead me to make some of my most beloved routines so I gotta give it some credit haha
    And girlll I get weird cravings all the time! Pickles with mustard, sweet potato with mango in a smoothie, tuna and peanut butter…it’s weird but oh so satisfying 😀

    I think you had a particularly deicious day!
    To be honest I just like to have 3 LARGE meals a day- and then I snack the night away-im a big night time nosher.
    I always get like mad cravings for vinegary / pickley type foods. I may or may not have gone through a jar of pickle in 2 days.
    Iv got my fingies, toes and everything else crossed I win the giveaway!

    Amen to having mustard cravings. I don’t know what it is about mustard, but I crave it on literally everything.
    I try to have set meals every day only because I know that snacking all day won’t satisfy my weird mind. I don’t think my brain believes that snacking = food, regardless of what time you eat it at.
    Your smoothies always look sso perfect! How do you get them that consistency??

    • August 31, 2011 9:06 pm

      Hmmm. Good question. I posted what I put in them, but I really think it’s the chia seeds that make them so pillowy and thick. I let the chias soak in the almond milk for ~20 minutes before, and then I add the rest of the stuff and blend. It could also be because I don’t use much liquid… I only use 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup, because I prefer the consistency to be more pudding like instead of watery.

  10. August 31, 2011 6:47 pm

    When I’m not home, I snack snack snack. I don’t like set meals- most of the time it requires commitment and then I don’t feel like having it so I get grumpy.

    I would just like to be you though, with your yummy eats and snack snackin. Wanna trade? C:

    Spelt flakes! After reading your comment on my spelt post and hearing that you had just eaten some, I had to head over here and check it out 😉
    I don’t blame you for dropping the workout plan and going with your own flow. That happens to me whenever I try to pre-schedule my workouts– it just doesn’t happen! My body wants something different every single day, whether it be yoga, weights, Bodyrock, or a nice cardio session. There’s no way I would be able to plan it all a week ahead of time!

  12. August 31, 2011 6:54 pm

    I usually like to have set meals, but sometimes you can’t help but get a bit snacky!

    I can never seem to decide between sweet and savory so my cravings usually combine a bit of both.
    Though as of late, I’ve been craving hummus which is extremely odd considering i’ve never even has it!

    • August 31, 2011 9:08 pm

      Ooooh girlie you HAVE to try some – your tastebuds will thank you 😀 The blog world is actually what introduced me to hummus, and I’m forever grateful. I eat the stuff every day, without fail.

  13. August 31, 2011 6:58 pm

    Yum! your post just made me really hungry all of a sudden! Happy WIAW 🙂

  14. August 31, 2011 7:05 pm

    first of all, I hope you know the girl crush is mutual. Let’s make [food] babies 😉

    Oh, and in regards to dropping the workout plan – GOOD CALL! I’ve tried following regimented workout plans and found that I just get bored. I’ve also found that knowing the night before exactly what my workout regime for the next day will be leads me to dreaaaaaaad it like crazy. Not sure if you got my tweet the other day but, before I stopped working out for the summer, I was obsessed with barre training (primarily Physique 57 and Core Fusion!). Seriously – they’re the most fun and effective exercise I’ve ever done!!! Just something to keep in mind if you’re looking to switch it up 🙂

    love you long time!

  15. August 31, 2011 7:13 pm

    My weird cravings….hm. I’m pregnant, so really, where shall we begin?

    The weird non-preggo things I like: kraft mac&cheese with ketchup, rice with honey, grilled chicken with honey…anything with honey, really….hmm

    Your eats look so good! Whenever you cook pasta or stir fry, (assuming you cook one-person portions) how do you know how much pasta to use? Do you go by the serving suggestion on the box or do you make a big batch of stir fry and eyeball your portions by the bowl?

    • August 31, 2011 9:11 pm

      I make a big batch of noodles because my family like eating them too, and then I eyeball out however much I want and make an individual portion of the actual stir fry to throw on top.

  17. August 31, 2011 7:29 pm

    I snack and have set meals. I’m pretty much just ALWAYS eating! Adding almond butter to your stir fry sounds like a delicious idea!

  18. August 31, 2011 7:30 pm

    Who needs dinner when you can have all the amazing snacks you did? 😉

    My meals are basically mini meals because I’m so indecisive that if I plan on having an actual meal, I usually end up changing it anyway.

    I get mustard cravings too! After a few days I get burned out on it again, which is so weird.

  19. August 31, 2011 7:48 pm

    Hi love!

    I usually always have breakfast set! There are few days I don’t , today was one of those days ; )
    Loving the tofu stir fry! Looks yum!

    Hope you have a wonderful night! Its great to get surprises in the mail!

    I love snacking! And all of your look delicious! Love the yogurt mess and the broc humus dish! Total staples right there 🙂

  21. August 31, 2011 7:57 pm

    All of your eats look amazing! I usually never eat set meals except if im at a family event or something. I snack thru out the day–it’s like if i get hungry or the munchies, i just eat what im craving. like right now it’s 9pm where i live and im eating a yogurt mess with muffin and bloobs. chyes. 🙂

  22. August 31, 2011 8:02 pm

    generally I eat “set” meals….but funny your WIAW is a snacker post because today for the first time in a long time, I did NOT feel like eating dinner – I was driving home and was like “you know what, I just want some self-serve froyo and mini pretzels dipped in PB” and that is exactly what I had and listening to my taste buds was the best decision EVER!

    And I’m a huge fan of the condiment mixing! Sometimes I like to mix spicy brown mustard or hummus with stuff like cottage cheese or laughing cow wedges lol. It sounds so gross to me when I’m not craving it!

  23. August 31, 2011 8:05 pm

    You know what I had to eat as soon as I got home today, right? 😉 I generally follow set meal times… I don’t know, it just gets on my nerves to snack the day away!

    ❤ ❤

    • August 31, 2011 9:19 pm

      Did I make you crave some granola goodness? 😀 I totally blame you if I go through withdrawals when I get through my baggie. I’m gonna have to ration myself…

  24. August 31, 2011 8:08 pm

    The only real meal I set for myself is breakfast. All the others are just snack/small meal type things. I definitely couldn’t do that with breakfast, though. That one HAS to be big!

  25. August 31, 2011 8:24 pm

    Usually I’m a 3 meals + 2 snacks kind of girl, but every once in a while I end up snacking all day — it all depends on my schedule and how much running around I have to do.

  26. August 31, 2011 8:29 pm

    ooh, I really want to find that cereal now. I think I would love it.

  27. August 31, 2011 8:54 pm

    I seriously need to figure out the trick to adding egg whites to oats. I tried it last week and it was a MAJOR fail. It just exploded all over my microwave, and after like 15 minutes of trying, I just had to go to my yogurt, so I could get to work. haha

    And that granola looks yummy! I’ve never tried that kind.

    Happy WIAW!

    • August 31, 2011 9:21 pm

      Awwr 😦 Yeah I don’t use a microwave for my oats, so I wouldn’t be able to help you there. I can imagine that mine would end up a major fail if I tried…

  28. August 31, 2011 9:01 pm

    I would say that most of the time, I snack the day away! This is something I am really working on though because I feel like it has to with my disordered eating issues… that I can’t be receptive of my actual hunger. Working on it though 🙂
    I love your recipes… I am going home tomorrow and making the eggified oats 😀

    I usually snack the day away. Breakfast is always a set meal, but besides that, I just go with whatever i’m craving.

  30. August 31, 2011 9:06 pm

    I feel you on the ketchup cravings- if I go a few days without, I need to get my fix ASAP!

  31. August 31, 2011 9:08 pm

    thank you for eating broccoli with ketchup. because umm i thought i was the only weirdo who did that. not that you’re weird or anything 😉

    i think ketchup makes everything better though.

    this weekend was a total snack all day/no complete meal kind of weekend, but you know what, it was more fun that way because i got to enjoy multiple snacks, all that i craving, all in one day!

  32. August 31, 2011 9:22 pm

    When I had the flu/influenza mix, I had a craving for my mom’s homemade matzo ball & vegetable soup.

  33. August 31, 2011 9:26 pm

    I’m pretty set on eating three meals a day. I definitely have snacks if I’m hungry, though. Some days I can go without them but others I am a hungry beast. Those days–bring on the snacks!!

  34. August 31, 2011 9:26 pm

    My cravings are some times off the charts! But sometimes I crave something so badly and once I finally have that food in front of me I no longer want it. That is rather annoying. Although last night I was eating chilli and had a HUGE craving for ketchup too so you know I smothered that bad boy is the red saucy goodness. Heinz ketchup all the way.

  35. August 31, 2011 10:43 pm

    My favorit WIAW! So jealous of your delicious meals! Today, your cereal-snack is my favorit! Looks really good. MMM!
    I tend to snack more that eating big meals every day! Before, this used to be a problem because i really wasnt eating enought. But now, I have been better at making my snacks mini-meals, so I just eat often and more balanced. At least I try! And I like to snack more tham I like to eat bigger meals.
    Food-gifts are the best! I always pretende my orderes from iherb are thoughtfull gifts from the nutbutter fairy 😉

    Usually I’m a meal person, but during the summer I definitely went snack crazy! I think it was because I could eat whenever I wanted at work or at home, so It was hard to just stick with meals ;).

  37. August 31, 2011 10:55 pm

    lately i’ve been a serious snacker. I just like to eat all the time, ha! But seriously, I find it easier to eat more often and in smaller portions than to eat big meals less often. I feel like I can fit in more variety that way as well.
    Hmm, weirdest cravings? raw kale, curry, sauerkraut, zucchini, marshmallows… just to name a few. I’m strange.

    August 31, 2011 11:07 pm

    I get the weirdest cravings… for ages it was tinned beetroot (please don’t judge me), I craved it and ate it every single day. Bah. Thank goodness that’s over. But often I’ll crave things like savoury yogurt (natural yogurt with tomato paste mixed through… don’t knock it til you try it :)) or dried fruit eaten with a spread/margarine. I just try and honour these cravings when nobody can see me 🙂

  39. August 31, 2011 11:30 pm

    I usually eat set meals, but when travelling a snackaroo sometimes works. And boy do I get random cravings- the other day I was craving the instead of a baguette (the fluffy soft part) dipped in dijon mustard! I also get texture cravings if that makes sense, like for something crunchy in a specific way or like the taste of something cakey dipped in greek yoghurt

    • September 1, 2011 7:40 am

      Makes perfect sense. I get cravings for textures a lot too, which is probably why I have so many different varieties of rolled hot cereals. It’s one of my favorite textures 🙂

    August 31, 2011 11:32 pm

    I snack through the whole day! 😀
    Like that you never have to wait long for to eat, hehe.

    I sometimes crave ovomaltine powder (which I eat with a spoon, no milk) or bananas.

  41. August 31, 2011 11:37 pm

    i’m totally an all-day-grazer more than a sit-down-and-eat-big-meal-er!
    and i also am 100% like you that i crave random things – like condiments ! i often make food to accompany my craving for condiments like hot sauce, salsa, guac, honey mustard, nutritional yeast, etc ! teehehe
    and if you love sun butter (like i do) you should try chocolate covered sunflower seeds. but i warn you…dangerously addictive.
    thanks as always for the inspiration!

  42. August 31, 2011 11:58 pm

    Lately ALL my meals have been very snack-y and light, but also frequent. I dont know if this is good or bad…I probably need to beef the minimeals up for health sake, anywho..
    I get random cravings for tuna, mustard, broccolli.

  43. September 1, 2011 12:16 am

    Your meals…just.pure.deliciousness. 🙂 I am always snacking my day away + eating my breakfast, lunch, and dinner..Yeah, I spend a lot of time eating, I think 🙂
    I have a lot of bizarre cravings, I like to add pickled anything to everything, like I am constantly pregnant or something 🙂 I like to have cocoa and PB in my chilli. I like to eat cucumber+apples+horseradish+mustard salad with almost any meal. I ama bizarre eater 🙂

  45. September 1, 2011 12:41 am

    I think we have the same taste buds!! I love Enjoy Life food brand, especially their cookies!! I love the combo of hummus and ketchup and I just discovered those cocoa ginger snaps last week and i already went through one bag :/ Thats awesome you stopped doing the workout because you werent enjoying it. I usually beat my self up if Im not enjoying a workout!! Some of my cravings other people mighnt find weird, but other bloggers actually give me the ideas!! (cottage cheese + cinnamon or yogurt +pudding mix!!)

  46. September 1, 2011 1:08 am

    As I meal plan for avoiding waste mostly, I tend to have set out dinners, however, recently by body has been telling me straight up what its craving and I have ended up snacking a lot more than usual, I think working things out so that I can ‘go with the flow’ a bit more and have a snacky day would be great for me!

  47. September 1, 2011 2:38 am

    I often crave mustard. But wholeseeded mustard…

    it’s odd.
    I eat it with everything if i crave it.

    Your pictures are always so good. i just want to eat the…picture…x

  48. September 1, 2011 3:00 am

    I’ll often snack through a meal! I prefer snacking away anyway- much more fun! 😀

    Haha YOU’VE just given me a MAJOR cereal and granola craving!! I think it’s snack time now 😉

  49. September 1, 2011 3:03 am

    Because I’m very prone to overeating or bingeing, I do try to follow structured meal plans because the more times I eat in a day, the more opportunities there are for me to go ‘over the top’. Not so much the exact meals, which I tend to ‘wing’ according to the day, but the ‘three meals, two snacks’ with breakfast and snacks being sweet, with lunch and dinner savoury. Otherwise I’d get through a jar of nut butter and bags of dried fruit every day, which are obviously okay in moderation, but I…don’t ‘moderate’ them very well 😛

    I always crave ketchup! And when I’m feeling ‘off’ I get strange cravings for salty foods…salt/vinegar crisps, salted PB and nooch mostly.

    Your day of snacks does look yummy though!

    *drool* double chocolate granola… ohman, just the sound of that makes me excited! and super jealous.
    Its coming into mango season over here! Im so excited, mainly because of the smoothies I can make with them!!

    Gotta love them random cravings! You know what, I have REALLY been craving broccoli lately. I don’t know what it is, but every night when it comes to dinner decision time I want it, sadly I’m out of it today so I opted for a tofu scramble.
    I am going to have to try sunbutter in my stir fry, I would have never thought of adding it.

    And to finish this comment on quite a random note, you have lovely nails. hahaha, I’ve noticed this before and forgot to comment on them. Not creepy I swear!!

    Ahhh I am such a big snacker..I just can’t stop! I try to have three set meals – mostly because for lunch and dinner I figure I need something other than sweet things because otherwise I would literally live on cereal, nut butter, bars, muffins, cookies, dried fruit…so I gotta get my nutrients from ‘real’ food I suppose! 🙂 I much prefer my snacks though hehe! And gahh, everytime I see those cocoa gingersnaps I really want to try them!!
    I’ve been seriously craving kabocha..probably because I haven’t had it so long and I can’t get my hands on any..oh and broccoli too! But it’s okay because I have a HUGE bag of it in my freezer yum 🙂

    • September 1, 2011 10:29 am

      I would send you my kabocha if I could! I still have one sitting on the counter, and as much as I want to dig into it, I’m scared that it’s gonna cause me stomach problems again 😦

  52. September 1, 2011 6:06 am

    I have that granola and I love it!!! Which is funny because I’ve tried the other Enjoy Life granolas and I don’t really like them all that much. I guess it’s the chocolate that makes it so good. 😀

    I always eat actual meals because otherwise I just don’t feel as satisfied. But of course I need my snacks throughout the day too!

    Hmm my weird cravings lately are cream cheese and sub sauce. 😛

  53. September 1, 2011 6:16 am

    I’m a big snacker. I used to try and avoid my cravings but now I just go with what my body tell me that it wants and it works for me. The eggy bananafied steel cut oats look amazing!

  54. September 1, 2011 6:46 am

    Sometimes I definitely just snack through the day. Although, my snacks can be more meal-sized haha. All of your eats always look so yummy :). I want to eat them all the time!

  55. September 1, 2011 6:51 am

    Amanda,
    I am so sorry for not commenting on your blog. I do read all your posts, but often I do not find the right words to formulate a comment. I could blame it on your beautiful pictures, who make my mind go into ” must eat” – mood, which clearly is a distraction ;P

    I am one for both set meals and snacks. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, supper, snack – that’s my day 😀
    Bizarre cravings… Hmmm, nah – nothing bizarre about me 🙂

  56. September 1, 2011 7:20 am

    Usually set meals but at weekends or holidays I snack much more and don’t have a lunch.

    Weird cravings? Pickles too. Actually anything pickled – onions, beetroot or actually Branston pickle. Mmmmm.

  57. September 1, 2011 7:58 am

    That really is quite a crazy craving. I am loving your post-workout snack. I wish I wasn’t so lazy – I’d make those more often!

  58. September 1, 2011 9:07 am

    I NEED TO TRY YOUR POST WORK OUT! WOWWWWW! Looks amazing Amanda 🙂 And eggified spelt flakes!? I must find out how you do those 🙂 That picture looks fabulous 😀

    Amanda, I keep extreme binging at night. This is not the way i want to gain 😦 Its wrong. I still do not exercise ever. I’m crazy cause I should but my legs are dead weight (probably cause I”m so terribly out of shape after 3 years of sleeping and sitting and binging). At night, I can exceed 1000 cals in chocolate and carbs…gross. Every. Single. Night. It has to stop. Its just boredom and depression. Its causing bad bowel issues (C)…do carbs worsen the C I wonder…gosh, any help? I have to stop this. Have to.

  60. September 1, 2011 9:26 am

    It’s actually quite rare for me to have three square meals/day. I always eat breakfast, but when I’m on my own and without a structured schedule (as it’s been most of the summer), I snack for there on out. A post-workout snack always happens, followed by a mini meal an hour or two later, followed by another mini meal…and another…and another. 😀 I prefer to eater smaller amounts continuously throughout the day because doing so keeps my energy levels high, and prevents my tummy from becoming overwhelmed. Plus, snacking is just more fun! Many different foods and flavors in one day adds a little extra zest to life.

    Strange craving: (prepare yourself for gross out!) I really like hard boiled eggs and mayonnaise, aka egg salad or deviled eggs. I know most bloggers find this combination rather repulsive, but it’s pure comfort food to me!

    I’m pretty sure my family thinks everything I eat is weird. Mine usually involve random condiments too! I’m far more likely to snack through lunch and not have an actual meal than to snack through dinner. What can I say, I love me a big meal for dinner 😛

    Mmm good day of eats! I love tofu during lunch – I find that when I eat too many veggies at lunch (read: salads) my stomach ends up hurting!

    Um Chocolate chip cookie dough balls.. wow those look good!

    I’ve been trying to stick to 3 meals with a snack in the afternoon, but during the weekends that doesn’t always happen!

    omg yay! that’s the new granola from enjoy life ❤
    i have always admired your creativity, which is so evident by how you take a product and style it (as only you can) by pairing it with other scrumptious foods to create the perfect meal. i would kill to have a meal made by you, especially your breakfasts!!

    xoxo ❤

    This summer I have turned into a “snack-through-my-meals” monster!! I start school next week though, so it’ll be back to breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, snack again. I’m actually looking forward to the structure, but not looking forward to all the prep that goes along with it! I feel like I’m able to listen to my cravings better when I snack. I guess that will just be for weekends though.
    The things that I tend to get random cravings for are boca burgers, eggplant, pickles, and tomato sauce. And now I’m craving chocolate granola and it’s all your fault! haha.

    I usually eat set meals and snacks. I feel best when I eat on a schedule!

    That’s a funny question because I usually end up turning my meals into snacks by eating snack foods 😀 Cereal is one of my top favorites! Oh I saw that same granola at the store yesterday. I should’ve picked it up! I’m drinking my first cup of Teeccino as I was reading this post. I’m liking it very much! What flavor is yours? I think I’m having a chocolate pudding craving after seeing your snack haha. I think it’s time for one.

      Any time is a good time for chocolate pudding 😀 And the flavor of Teeccino that I have now is mocha, but I’ve tried their chocolate mint and almond amaretto and really love those as well 😀

    I want that bowl of cereal with the cocoa ginger snaps…and that oatmeal and those chocolate chip cookie dough balls!

    It’s nice to plan meals, but I often find myself going for snacks (especially when I have school or at my internship). The weekends are the best to plan for meals and try new things.

    I try to keep my meal times the same. Love the recipe! Anything with apples is awesome

    I swear, toasted sesame oil MAKES a stir fry! I’ll have to try throwing in some SSB next time…yet ANOTHER reason for me to fall in love with my beloved nut butter! 😉

    I usually stick to normal meal times during the week, but on the weekend anything goes! And you should know that I’m one of the poster children for bizarre cravings! Last night I had 1/2 a pita dipped in raspberry chipotle salsa and the other half dipped in a mix of mashed banana and peanut flour. Couldn’t decided on sweet or savory, so I went with BOTH! Haha!

    all your eats look deelicious as always! – I definitely find myself snacking away ALLLL the time…Some days are just snack-ier than others. hehe 🙂
    And I also have the strangest cravings sometimes! Some of your pictures (the tofu stirfry!) are actually sparking my cravings 😉

    Yumm! Definitely craving right now.

    Thanks for the suggestions!
