Whew, it’s been a tough and draggy week here. I’ve been struggling to stay positive lately with so much ugly news, being crazy busy at work, and dealing with allergies and/or possibly a bug this week. But the weekend is getting closer, so there is that! And I’ve got sweet pups and a sweet hubby to make things better.
I found these Nutpods vegan coffee creamers at Grocery Outlet for an awesome deal this week and grabbed one of every flavor.
The ingredient list and calories aren’t scary, I like that they’re not loaded with sugar. But they need the addition of sweetener for coffee.
The vanilla flavor was excellent with quick oats flavored with raisins and pumpkin spice seasoning with powdered stevia.
I have not been feeling too inspired in the recipe creation department this week and sticking with go to favorites like roasted tahini kabocha squash with curried quinoa.
And a simple savory blend of grains with chopped veggies and chickpeas for dinner one night when my stomach was not feeling 100%.
A spicy quinoa saute with tomatoes and leftover roasted squash chopped for a simple, savory fall dish.
And there was this interesting salad lunch with my mom with tamari spritzed popcorn, roasted spaghetti squash, and tangerines.
Tonight I fell back to a comfort favorite of salad with chickpeas and a savory tahini ginger carrot blender dressing.
Thankfully feeling better and less blah. Sweet hubby stocked up on cold medicines in case things flare up again and the weekend is closer with cooler weather. Hope everyone is having a great week!
