Home Late, Quick Dinner

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

I must say I have a new found respect for all 3 posts-a-day bloggers. It’s fun, but not easy!

After a super fast 2 mile walk/jog with the pups, I took a quick shower and got ready to go into work. Lunch was great, but I knew it wouldn’t hold me through an afternoon of massage therapy sessions. So, I blended 2 TBSP chia seeds with 2 cups water in the Vita-Mix and let it gel while I took a shower. Then, before leaving, I made a smoothie with the chia gel, canned pumpkin (1/3 cup?), 1 scoop vanilla pea protein powder (random sample I had), cinnamon, stevia, xanthan gum, guar gum, & ice. Gulped it down on the way to the office and later decided that I don’t like pea protein powder. It makes my belly gurgle.


That 32 ounces of pumpkin pie goodness got me through the afternoon, but by the time I arrived home around 7:30, I was hungry again. CD had already eaten the crock-pot meatballs I made for him. Therefore, I was on my own for dinner, and in honor of my favorite Chocolate Covered gal, I made an all vegan dinner, kale chips and a Garden Herb Sunshine Burger smothered in this…


I love ketchup. Then look what I discovered sitting in our cabinet…


An almost empty almond butter jar. I’d say there was a good 2 to 3 heaping spoonfuls left. Now, I couldn’t let it go to waste, could I?


Vanilla cinnamon protein ice-cream in the almond butter jar concludes this, a day of eats in the life of HEAB. Won’t you please join me for breakfast? Hope so. Night. :)
