Things I Put In My Face

Hey everyone! It has been a while since I did a post of what I ate so I decided to photograph some meals I've been eating! There are some meals that are typical to my summer diet (watermelon anyone?!) and a new meal I tried when I was out to lunch with my mom.

For breakfast I like to eat giant containers stuffed full of watermelon. You can't tell the size of the container in the picture (and you can't see the difference in size between this container and the one below - which is much smaller) but trust me, my belly was full of sweet, hydrating watermelon. I've decided that watermelon is definitely my favorite food ever :)

This was a delicious serving of  Un-Fried Rice rice that I made for a lunch. This is simply brown rice, mixed veggies and "Roasted Soy Protein Nuggets" from the Whole Foods Salad bar. It is basically the same protein source that they use in the General Tso's Soy Protein stuff that they make minus the sauce. I like the plain version better and it was perfect to add into this rice dish.

For an afternoon snack I decided to try this Fruit Chia bar that Isobelle included in her amazing and generous package!  It was really good, I definitely enjoyed it! She included lots of delicious raw treats and I'm excited to try all of them!

I finally tried my Justin's dark chocolate peanut butter cups and oh man!! I LOVED these things. I love that they use dark chocolate because they aren't sickly sweet. Definitely a really great treat when you need a chocolate fix (which I definitely needed).

My mom took a vacation day today and we had a fun girl's day which included lunch at Noodle's and Co.  and it was really good! I got the Japanese Pan Noodles which is vegan according to my Vegan Xpress App and I added the organic tofu to it. It was so good and I LOVE the texture of udon noodles so I was extra happy that this dish was made up of udon noodles. I liked the slight heat in the sauce although it was a touch sweet for my taste. I have a big portion of it leftover for lunch tomorrow as well.

I went grocery shopping today and picked up some fun things like lots of zucchini for zucchini pasta (I'll try to remember to photograph) and mangos! I have been craving mango like crazy lately so I made sure to get some to satisfy the craving. I cut one up to bring with me for lunch tomorrow (with my leftover noodles) and it looks so perfect, I can't wait!

Delilah graduates from Pre-K soon (I can't believe she is going into Kindergarten!) and has been asking me to make her a necklace so I did to celebrate her graduation. I made her this adorable skull necklace with green stones because green is her favorite color. I can't wait to give it to her! I'll make sure to take a picture of her wearing it.

So that's all I have for you right now. Not a ton but I've been trying to get better about taking pictures of my meals. Things have been a bit crazy here but I'm trying to think of some fun posts to put up. It's been super hot and humid here lately but maybe if it gets a little better I'll be able to get out and start exploring some of the places I saw in the Fun Book. I definitely want to go to the Israeli Market soon too to check it out and see what kinds of fun things they have. If I'm understanding correctly they have a hummus bar which is very exciting, ha!

OK friends, I hope you have a great night!


  1. So Watermelons are in season? I am still wary.

    I really like that WF's Seitan. Wonder where they get it?

    Not as big a fan of Noodles and Co or Justins, but better than nuthin.

    Excellent post. Congrats to Delilah!

    1. They are hit or miss I think. The last watermelon I had, the one in the picture, was AMAZING. Super sweet and juicy.

      I liked the plain roasted version much better and it was the perfect addition to the unfried rice!

      The Pan Noodles were good. Not my favorite because of the sauce but it was definitely a satisfying meal.

      Thanks and thanks!

  2. I like to eat watermelon in the car while I'm traveling! You're so talented!

    1. Oooh yes, it is such a refreshing snack and really great for staying hydrated during a car trip! Thank you so much!

  3. I'm with Shen - I think I have to wait another week or so on the watermelon. What I've purchased has been okay, but I know it can be soooo good! I love your Unfried Rice, and should make it again.

    Oooh, glad you enjoyed the Justin's cups! I've had those noodles, and I remember them being pretty good.

    Yay, Delilah! I bet she'll love that necklace, it's so cute!

    1. Watermelon has been hit or miss but I really enjoyed this one. We have the whole summer to get our fill of super sweet watermelon which makes me so happy! I'm so glad you like the rice!

      Oh man, the cups were SOOOOOOO good! I'll have to keep them in mind down the road as a yummy chocolatey treat :)

      I hope she likes her necklace! I think I'll find out this weekend :)
