Birthday Breakfast!

Today is my Solar Return day! Yay! To celebrate I decided to make a cheat-y breakfast. Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes! Peanut butter is my most favorite sweet thing in the world so I had to get it in somewhere today. These aren’t that bad for me either – not a real “fall-off-the-lifestyle-change-wagon” treat. Once you see the ingredients, you’ll know that it only looks and tastes unhealthy…

Pancake Ingredients
I feel pretty good about this!

See? Not bad, not bad at all…

PB Cup
Nom…

Okay, maybe the Justin’s Peanut Butter Cup. I only used one though!

I made the Kodiak Cakes batter according to the directions and added about two tablespoons of the Crazy Richard’s Pure PB Plus.

Once I got the mix in the pan I topped it with some of the chopped peanut butter cup…

In the Pan
I added more than this!

I only made two pancakes…and I forgot to take a picture until I was 2/3 done!

It was worth every carb and calorie! Happy Birthday to me!

Fresh Fruit Friday!

Okay – here’s where I get a little dweeby. I am admiring my past photos of fruit salad, from my Instagram, and sharing them here. Fruit is just so photogenic. Fruit and sushi are very photogenic, actually (random thoughts). So, here is my latest salad…

Fruit Salad 1
Usually with the kombucha…

I made this one on Independence Day…

Fruit Salad 2

Patriotic…

I must’ve been really thirsty when I made this one…

Fruit Salad 3
So refreshing…

So, I guess I was low on fruit here…

Fruit Salad 4
Not the best combination – I really felt like the pineapple was eating me back…

I needed some healthy fats to round out my salad here:

Fruit Salad 5
It helps to eat fruit salad with chopsticks…

I must’ve had a nighttime fruit craving…

 

Fruit Salad 6
So dark~bad lighting

And finally, this beauty below. It was so pretty, I had to take it outside to eat it (made for a nice photo)…

 

Fruit Salad 7
I will always try to live up to this one…

I’ll make sure to post regular fruit salad updates…
