All The Randomness!

Why hello you guys! I feel like I've been doing a WAY better job at posting and I hope that you have been enjoying what I've been putting up. I think I've reached a nice balance of food and planner stuff by just showing you my weekly spreads along with my hauls on Monday. I've been thinking about resurrecting my Fun Friday posts but I don't know exactly what I would want those posts to be so I'm going to hold off until I can figure that out.

Before I get into the meals that I've eaten this week that I haven't shown yet I just want to say that I'm really glad I've been sticking to my goals because I'm feeling a lot better in just the past couple of weeks. I've been getting to the gym 3x a week (which is a lot considering I'm not thrilled with my new gym at all) and I've been going on at least 1 if not 2 walks a day when the weather is nice. Cutting the processed food has really helped with my energy, my skin and most importantly my sleep! I'm really happy and I think that posting all of my meals has helped me stay on track and that's pretty great :)

Ok enough babbling, here are the meals from the week!

I had a huge bowl of the Cinnamon Blueberry Flax cereal I love the finish off the box to make room for the cereal I got at the beginning of the week. Cereal with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk is so satisfying sometimes!

I've been enjoying a lot of oats lately and this was the most unique bowl by far. I made stevia sweetened chocolate oats with banana and coconut and it was delicious! A perfect way to indulge my chocolate craving!

This bowl was the result of a huge meal prep session on Monday. I made a huge pot of rice and a pot of lentils and I mixed the two with corn and peas and had that with veggies all week.

Of course I have to have my Mediterranean bowls. I'm out of stuffed grape leaves so I'll have to get some more of those!

This was a little treat I got for lunch yesterday! I was at the store before work picking a few things up that I needed and I didn't have lunch with me so I checked out the sushi and they had these gorgeous fresh veggie rolls. It was 12 pieces for $6.49 which I think is a good price? I don't eat sushi much at all so I don't know but it seemed fair to me, ha!

My favorite meal was repeated several times and that is a big plate of oil free oven fries. I usually dip into my ketchup but I made a big swirl to make the picture more interesting ;)

So there are the meals I've been eating this week! Hopefully I'll be able to do the same next week. I like the idea of a Monday haul, a midweek full day of eating and an end of the week roundup. What do you think about that schedule? I'm not going to commit to anything because I clearly don't do well with that but I think it is a nice variety!

I forgot to mention that I might be a little more scarce the next two weeks because I am going to be preparing to sell my jewelry at a craft fair so I'll be making A LOT of jewelry but I'll do my best to do at least two posts per week if not more!

I hope you all have a great weekend! <3


  1. I am so happy you are posting again. Everything looks delicious. $6.49 was a great deal for all the Sushi, espcially if you enjoyed it. I have had some supermarket Sushi that just wasnt good quality. Do you roast one or two Potatoes for your Fries? Definitely keep up this current schedule of hauls and meals.

    1. Thank you! I'm really glad I figured out a schedule that works for me. I can't post everything I eat every day but this has been working out really well. The sushi was absolutely delicious and super fresh. It depends on the size of the potato. I had some huge ones and those I just do one but the 5lb bag I got has a bunch of small ones so I may do two small ones.

  2. I agree; I always look forward to your posts :). I think you got a very good deal on the sushi and it's it great when you get something that feels like a splurge but financially really isn't. Best oatmeal bowl ever - I want that!

    1. Thank you so much and thank you for the comment :) The sushi was a great deal, it was really delicious too. The oatmeal was amazing! I love trying new things in my oatmeal... it usually works out really well!

  3. Hooray! Glad to hear you are doing great! It's all about that happy balance, and it sounds like you are there. I have a request: show us some of your jewelry for the craft fair!

    I love everything here; it all looks so good, and so colorful!

    1. Thanks Ingrid :) Yes, I will definitely show some of the jewelry once I finish it up. I made 50 pieces today... which is crazy! Once I have them all dried I'll take a quick pic for you to see. I'll try and take a pic of the displays at the fair too!
