went all out today…

Some days there just isn’t time for breakfast or lunch, it was a brunch kind of a day.  With the 30 minutes I had to quickly scramble around and try to accomplish as much as possible before the little one woke up, I chose to eat.  I had eggs that should have probably been cooked a little longer, a tad bit too “wet.”  I thought to myself, if we eat eggs with a runny yoke I should be safe from the salmonella demon.  I gobbled them up with my avocado slices, side of bacon (nitrate free of course) and left over sweet potato slices my husband had made for dinner last night.  This was completely satisfying of all the essential fatty acids.  My snack to hold me over until dinner was this amazing bar (you have to splurge on the prepackaged items, it’s all about convenience some days):

Another addition to our pantry this week was home-made cashew butter.  I enjoy making my own nut butters with the Nutribullet.  We purchased the cashews in the large container from Costco last week and could probably make 3-4 jars of this butter.  These nut butters have gotten extremely pricey, some selling for over $10-15.  There is no way I could rationalize paying that kind of money for a jar of cashew butter when I could make more than one jar for that price.  The container from Costco is roughly $15 and you could make 3-4 batches from it, depending on how many cashews you eat before breaking out the Nutribullet.     🙂
