Who knew what the microwave could do?

December 11, 2009

Best. Breakfast. Ever.

Didn’t even think about poached eggs or oatmeal once while eating.

*Intuitive, spur of the moment, unplanned breakfast SUCCESS*

This would be Kath‘s pumpkin pie cake which I also have seen frequent this blog WHICH I adapted to have even more protein: 3 egg whites, 1/3 cup pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla extract microwaved to fluffy perfection in a round Tupperware, topped with 1 t crumbled coconut butter and 1 t maple syrup.  On the side leftover ~3/4 cup Oikos with 1/4 cup homemade granola and half of a chopped persimmon.

I made FUDGE BABIESIt’s about time Bek, seriously.

In my version, I used walnuts, dates, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, shredded coconut, and a smidge of coconut butter, in honor of Katie‘s Artisana Giveaway, of course.  Whirled up in the food processor.

Rolled to fudgey perfection.

Lunch Wedneday: Massaged kale with tahini dressing, raw carrots and salsa, a boiled egg*, cooked purple carrot fries.

*I had planned on having two boiled eggs, but one was not quite as cooked as the other- I tried to salvage it by cooking it in the microwave post peeling;  and it blew up. When I say blew up, I mean it sounded like a gun went off in the microwave.  Needless to say, the carrot fries were cold by the time I had cleaned everything up.  Gross.

I don’t post a lot of meals because they’re eaten out; and truth be told, I never post ugly/non-photogenic eats.  It doesn’t mean I don’t whip out my camera  like any proud foodie should in a restaurant to try and snap a fab photo.

This is breakfast post gym heavy lifting sesh at the little sister of my fave restaurant.

Huevos Mexicanas- eggs scrambled with tomatoes, green Anaheim chilies and onion.  Served with lots of salsa, beans, salad and fruit.

And a bottomless cup of strong coffee. As it should be.

Lunch Thursday: Greens with chicken, carrots, celery, yellow pepper, kabocha, avocado, cherry tomatoes and a drizzle of tahini and cracked black pepper.

Dinner, Tuesday night I believe: 1 egg+2 egg white omelet with spinach and pecorino romano on top.  With sliced tomatoes and avocado.

I got so pumpkin pie cake and CCK recipe happy: I decided to have another pumpkin-egg white cake for dinner Thursday night alongside a banana hammock stuffed with tahini and flaked coconut.  The pie cake this time was topped with pumpkin butter & coconut butter. Holy delish.

Check out that pancake texture?! 3 egg whites worth of protein with ~50 cals of pumpkin puree.  What else do you need?

I want to now take a moment to thank you (old readers and new commenters alike) for sticking by and reading my blog.  I honestly don’t have a label for this blog: as long as it is fun to write and enjoyable to read, I’ll continue for as long as I want to. I don’t think of it as a daily food journal or journal of any kind-  I merely think of it as a place I can share my passion for food, recipes, ideas, fitness, healthy living, my amateur photography+writing, fashion and restaurants all in one single place.

The past couple months since I’ve discovered the blogosphere it has become such a blessing in my life.  Meeting new friends and getting to know you guys through eachother’s blogs, comments, e-mails, etc.- I have loved it so much.  So thank you.  I’m excited to see where this thing goes and where it takes me, because lets be honest here for just one second: the cyber world is a crazy place.

I passed my 50th post mark, SEVEN posts ago, and I didn’t even realize it.  Granted, the first few months I had no readers- but I think they still count. A week from today marks my sixth month blogoversary which to me is so unbelievable. Would I be a bad blogger to say I can’t remember life, before blogging?

Bahahaha. Of course I can.  I just prefer not to.

xo, Bekah

    ISn’t blogging fun?! I discovered it this year too, adn I’m so glad I did.

    Love the fudge babies! I’ll have to try those sometime. I need a food processor first, and a bigger kitchen so I can buy one! I’m growing out of my kitchen, it’s awful.

    I tried the pumpkin pancake once :) although I think I used too small of a bowl and thus didn’t get the best consistency. Also, I was so impatient to eat; I burned my tongue. >>

    “And a bottomless cup of strong coffee. As it should be.”
    That is priceless.

    Aw man, that pumpkin cake would be awesome if I didn’t have an irrational fear of pumpkin puree. I wonder what other pureed goodies you could do it with?

    I blew up a boiled egg at work once. It was scary as hell! But I was also starving and didn’t have back-up food, so I salvaged what i could and still ate the scraps on a bagel. That salad bowl is hilarious, I usually eat mine out of casserole dishes too.

    I remember life before blogging. I spent a lot of time wishing I had a reason to photograph my food :P Love your blog Bekah! You keep doing what you wanna do and I’m sure we’ll all keep coming back for ya :)

    Happy 6-month Aniversary!! :D

    Loving all of your eats girl- YUM!

  18. December 12, 2009 9:14 pm

    I too, am glad you started blogging, and happy 6 month/50+ post! Hurray for you.

    FYI, I have also had an egg-splosion in the microwave. I’m pretty good at mastering most kitchen disasters- I’m good at them :-)

    You are the queen of eggs and that’s no small task!

  19. December 12, 2009 9:30 pm

    Bekah, will you come cook for me? haha….I love, love, love your eats. I also love your shout out to fellow bloggers. I find blogging to be more and more inspiring everyday! Plus, there’s all these cool giveaways, and nice feedback, and people who actually eat like me! Keep it up, congrats on the 50+ blog posts!

  20. December 12, 2009 11:37 pm

    Hee, I’m glad you entered the blog world, too. You’re a fun and entertaining read. :-)

    That breakfast sounds cool! Yum! I wonder if mashed avocado will yield similar results…excuse me, my head is thinking weird…

  21. December 13, 2009 11:12 am

    haha, you know youve become a food blogger when you can’t remember life before it. fo sho.
