Comfort Food

Hello blog buds! Today was a day full of comfort food and laziness!

I started the morning with a bowl of VOO (vegan overnight oats) except they weren't over night, I made it all this morning.

These oats were:
1/3 c. oats
3/4 c. almond milk
1 scoop chia seeds
1/2 scoop of Sunwarrior protein powder (best protein powder I've ever had)
All of those ingredients were mixed into a bowl and put in the fridge to soak for a little over an hour. (usually you would do this part the night before)
Then you make the delicious ice cream banana soft serve:
Mix a frozen banana and a little almond milk (or milk of choice) in the blender. This morning I drizzled maple syrup over the top!


Sophia wanted her own ice cream banana soft serve for breakfast. I'll just let her think she is having ice cream for breakfast.This makes me a really cool mom! This is a great dairy free ice cream alternative for kids or grown ups!

We had a nice relaxing day that included naps for everyone!  Before I knew it,  it was on to dinner. I drank this while fixing dinner, it is sweetened with Stevia. It was just ok, nothing earth shattering.

WARNING- You will not see any veggies in this dinner. I know shame, shame!
It was NOT an alkaline dinner tonight. It was all about comfort food! Mama needed comfort, and to use up some things from the freezer! We had 2 kinds of pasta:
Mushroom Ravioli from a Local Farm and family business

Mushroom Goodness!

And Sophia's favorite, whole wheat Rotini

Smothered with this: ( I love Paul Newman brand anything, it's usually all natural or organic and all proceeds from all his products go to his charity for kids)

Rolls on the side with Earth Balance Butter (vegan) Can you say carb overload!

Meat for the man!

And the final product:


And Little Hers

She takes her pasta eating serious!

Forget the fork!

Cleaned the plate of pasta! (fake smile)

 Then this arrived at our door, so we are back on track with our fruits and veggies tomorrow! Thank goodness!

And I can't wait to juice this baby with a little ginger in the morning!

Now, we are going to be lazy some more, this time with bellies full of pasta! It's been a week!



  1. Hey Adrianne!

    I just stumbled upon your blog through The Front Burner. I'm looking forward to exploring, as it seems we have a very similar eating style.

    Have a great day,
