can you BELIEVE it.
no no not the amazing rainbow cookie cake we found yesterday
or the fact that i found white side only black & white cookies, in heaven only 4 minutes away
which i’m still convinced is the reason the giants won
deej still can’t. she’s probably still crying tears of joy now.
did you have fun with my first official football pool? i definitely did.
when i woke up and decided to blog yesterday, i was like i want to give away these chia seeds in a majorly fun way. and it just came to me, and then i didn’t have much time, so i made everyone else feel the panic.
okay okay, so now you want to know who won?
well. the giants won against the packers and the final score was 37-20 with a total score of 57 points
well the winner of ALL winners is
holly! she predicted the giants to win and a total score of 63.

I'm taking the Giants this afternoon :) &please say you're taking the Ravens for the game right now!
Score: Giants: 35
The Pack: 28
LOVE this giveaway...might have to do with my football obsession ;)
the runners up (the very) close runners up are the following 4 people
and i know i said that only 3 people would win but i mean 3 people guessed the same score AND guessed the giants and one person guessed an over score but still the same number difference, the majority of everyone guessed the packers.
har har har. don’tcha wish you picked big blue?

that’s enough of that.
moving on, this weekend has been chock full of deliciousness.
let’s review some quick highlights
here’s a look into the most deliciousness of this weekend
this peanut butter came into my life this weekend, and i’m telling you it’s life changing.
i have no idea where it’s from, but jenna brought it home from some natural foods grocery store on the upper east side in manhattan. it’s fresh churned, and literally it’s fresh churned.
i’ve never had peanut butter that’s so peanut buttery.
please don’t ever leave my life.
i’m nut butter indecisive every day, but it was amazing on a simple bowl of egg white oats
here we go again, except this time i plopped it on a bowl of baked protein oatmeal that i just crumbled up oatmeal style after it cooked and munched it with a spoon
it’s called ‘too lazy to stand over the stove’ oatmeal
lately i’ve wanted nothing to do with lettuce.
lately i’ve been craving roasted vegetables like a mad woman
so i cooked up a nice hefty sized pan of random roasted vegetables so i had them good to go to throw into salads throughout the week/weekend.
roasted broccoli, cauliflower & green beans in nutritional yeast, chili powder & italian seasonings
a few weeks ago i saw katie roast green beans and i thought it was genius.
obviously i had to follow
roasted vegetable salad with sweet potato, jamie eason’s monster meatloaf & a tahini drizzle dressing
someone asked a few posts ago how i make my tahini drizzle.
tahini drizzle dressing: 1-2 tsp tahini ( i keep it refrigerated so it’s thick & cold), 1T braggs liquid aminos, juice of half a lemon or lime, 1/2 stevia packet, a scoop of dijon mustard, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
obviously you can tell i just splitz and splatz, no measuring necessary.
and so when deej took an enormous package of chicken out of the fridge this weekend to
make room for new shit in our freezer defrost, i hopped on a few of those pieces pronto.
i put 3 large chicken breasts in a ziploc bag with 1T coconut oil, a hefty splash of bragg’s liquid aminos, the juice from a whole lime, & tons of chopped basil. let it sit in the fridge overnight, and remembered it last night when i was getting dinner on the brain.
instead of just cooking it up, i decided to turn them into chicken nuggets
coconut & basil chicken nuggets
so i took naomi’s amazing recipe & diced up the marinated chicken breasts, threw them into a container with a about a 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs, 1-2T almond flour, chili powder, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, sea salt & dried oregano
shake shake shake! and then baked them at 400F for about 25 minutes
they came out amazing. i seriously can’t wait to eat them for lunch.
i had them on some kale chips and drizzled honey mustard all over the salad
on the side i had a room full of screaming giants fans.
this is a long post. but you need to see the way i ended my weekend.
rainbow cookie cake. yes please and thank you.
the giants weren’t the only ones who won this weekend.
i’ve got the day off & lots of good news to come. but you’ll have to wait for that, because i need a shower, and my fingers hurt from typing.
love to love you <3
cawfee tawk! was your weekend #winning? details!
