Calling All Broccoli Lovers

I arrived home from yoga this morning a sweaty hungry mess, and in honor of Jennifer, I DID NOT EAT OATS. :) Instead, I made a glorious 2-course breakfast consisting of:

Omega 3 stuffed omelet

Before dairy-free month, all I ever put in my omelets was cheese.  There are so many other options, and these days, I love getting creative with my egg dishes. This morning’s edition was filled with leftover Humbecue Salmon Salad.  For dessert I had:

Into the Vita-Mix went 6 POM Wonderful frozen ice-cubes, 1 scoop of Jay Robb chocolate whey protein powder, and 1 cup of water.  For my toppings, I used a sprinkle of Zoe’s cinnamon raisin granola and a spoonful of Trader Joe’s unsalted crunchy peanut butter.  The PB sank to the bottom in one big chunk, and I saved it for last.  Best bite of the bowl!

After a crazy day at work, I set off on a mission to use up the last of the produce before our weekend grocery shopping.  OK, so I’ve seen asparagus guacamole and guacamole with peas.  Guess what I decided to make with all that broccoli sitting in our fridge?

which I served with spelt tortillas, hummus, and MORE broccoli. You know I love my green foods! :)

Now, I just need to figure out a way to use up all the leftovers.  Broc guac stuffed omelet anyone?

After dinner, I met up with the girls.  It was wig night:

Recognize me?

Wow, it’s been a long day, and I am up way past my bedtime.  Tomorrow consists of work all morning followed by the last class of my yoga workshop. :(

Happy weekend my friends!
