Keeping It Raw

by HEAB on February 23, 2010

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 felt so good after my morning green smoothie yesterday, that I made another for lunch.

IMG_4490.JPG

Oh, my gosh, this one was 10 x’s better than my breakfast smoothie because I added cinnamon, vanilla, and 1 TBSP maca powder and topped my bowl with raw macadamia nuts + more cinnamon. So good. To me, maca powder tastes kind of like burnt caramel and pairs perfectly with cinnamon. Yes, I like the taste of maca. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t eat it. As well as tasting delicious, maca powder offers some great health benefits for both men and women. To read more about said benefits, please click here. Oh my gosh, do you know what I love even more than my maca powder? Raw macadamia nuts!!! If only they weren’t so pricey. I bought a tee-tiny bag while restocking my nooch from the bulk bins at Whole Foods. Is it considered stealing to eat straight from the bulk bins???? ;)

Along with my smoothie, I ate some steamed Brussels sprouts…

CD had a business dinner last night, and so guess what I made?

IMG_4491.JPG

BROCCOLI, welcome home my long lost friend! I took Katie’s advice and roasted some frozen broccoli. Katie, CD couldn’t smell it when he got home…I LOVE YOU! So, I ate an entire bag of Trader Joe’s frozen broccoli roasted with 1/2 TBSP coconut oil, salt, and pepper. I roasted it in my cast iron skillet in a 425° for 35 or 40 minutes maybe? Along side my broccoli, I channeled my favorite twins with some sauerkraut and 1 serving of cooked millet covered in 1/2 TBSP coconut oil and cinnamon.

Perhaps, it was my dessert that masked the broccoli stench…

Mmm, plain baked sweet potatoes. I threw them in the oven with the broccoli. What a yummy dinner! It’s days like yesterday that make me think, I could totally be a happy vegan, but then I remember the 2 cups of coffee I had with cream…and the fact that I ate 5 eggs the other day…oh, and then there’s my fascination with bacon and cream cheese. Hehe, oh well, ya never know with me. I like to keep y’all guessing. :)

P.S. Do you ever hide food from your spouse/significant other? CD is totally used to me doing this, and knows all of my good hiding places. He found the macadamia nuts last night. Don’t eat them all CD. ;)

I love your baked sweet potato for dessert! I am always hiding goodies around the house – Jason is always surprised when he finds a bag of dried apricots in the bathroom. I mean, sometimes you work up an appetite blow drying your hair.

Jessica @ How Sweet February 23, 2010 at 12:04 pm

I usually only hide SOME stuff from my hubby, but he knows about it. ;)

Kelly February 23, 2010 at 12:05 pm

That looks so good!

Evan Thomas February 23, 2010 at 12:05 pm

My parents probs wouldn’t eat what I do, except my dad would LOVE to get some of my nut butters, lol.
I’ve never tried maca powder, but it’s health benefits and “caramel” flavor will go duly noted.
Roasted broccoli is just AMAZING. I need to meal plan for it more

Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama February 23, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I hide veggies and greens in food for my toddler. He isn’t too picky but he loves green monsters and I feel good about giving them to him!

Heather February 23, 2010 at 12:11 pm

that’s so funny…i used to hide food from my husband in a bad way, so i don’t think that counts…

sounds like a WONDERFUL dinner…roasting frozen stuff helps with the wallet too!

Runeatrepeat February 23, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I wish Ben would hide food from me! I bought him powdered donuts (because they are his fave) and he keeps them right out in the open on his desk! Hide them please.

I don’t hide, but I’m stingy with brussel sprouts. I’ll give him 5 and take 43.

thedelicateplace February 23, 2010 at 12:21 pm

haha oh i hide raw raw almonds from my hubs but he has to hide dark chocolate & nut butters from me or i will devour them in 3 days! Heather, where can one purchase this maca stuff? i’m curious about it and don’t have a WF. do you think Wegman’s might have it or should i just go online?

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 12:38 pm

thedelicateplace, I’ve seen maca in the supplement section of a lot of health food stores. Not sure about Wegman’s, but you can buy maca from my HEAB store online: http://astore.amazon.com/heaeatalmbut-20/detail/B002X5WG8E

Lara (Thinspired) February 23, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Ahhh, so much to say. I will have to try the maca + cinnamon pairing. I bet it tastes like a milkshake :)

Thanks so much for the mention. It makes me happy that you appreciated that post, as it took me quite a while to put together!

Frozen broccoli, eh? Every time I make it, it turns out soggy. Perhaps coconut oil is the secret?

I’ve been meaning to ask you about your fat intake…if you have ever measured it in grams. Man, I didn’t think I had a “high fat” diet, but according to SparkPeople, I eat lots of fat + fiber! Woops! I bet I’d have a friend in the high-fiber club if you ever tracked ;) Seriously, how does the average American only get 11 grams/day?

Never hid food from Matt in the past…though I am thinking about when I re-stock on Balance Bars ;)

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Lara, Yes, thank you so much for the maca post. Whenever I mention it, people always ask me about it. Now, I can just send them the link to your post as I found it very informative.

My fat intake…I have tracked it on random days. It varies. Usually anywhere from 75 to 120 grams. I eat a lot of fat..it’s my macronutrient of choice. :)

Serena February 23, 2010 at 12:40 pm

I love maca, too :) It’s great in chia pudding. Have you tried Mesquite powder? My mom loves mixing the two – says it tastes like carob-y, chocolate-y caramel :D

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Serena, No, and I have some mesquite that Smoothie Girl Deb gave me. Thanks for the reminder!

Carolyn February 23, 2010 at 12:44 pm

I have been TOLD by the WFd’s employees here, on more than one occasion, to try anything you would like to taste, right out of the bulk bins..

But, I take no responsibility if your WFd’s carts you off to shoplifter jail.. ;-)

and, that is the greenest green smoothie ever…

Heather @ Get Healthy With Heathee February 23, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Yum sweet potatoes are totally like dessert! I usually don’t “hide” food, but I’ll put it behind things I know Jacob wouldn’t look behind.

Katie February 23, 2010 at 1:22 pm

(Curtsy) You’re welcome for the broccoli tip – glad it worked for you. :D I’m addicted to it – I buy in bulk at Sam’s. Your sweet potatoes inspired me to have sweet potatoes with my grass-fed and finished beef chili last night! Check out my post, and then buy Kelly’s cookbook! It’s a good one.

Emily February 23, 2010 at 1:56 pm

That is one green smoothie!
I always have my boyfriend hide things from me – some foods are just too tempting to have around out in the open.
I don’t think I hide things from him, but that’s generally because he’s not so interested in any of my treats…

Maggie February 23, 2010 at 2:00 pm

I am so bad – I always hide things from Bobby. Not always food. One time I hid a bunch of his old yucky t-shirts to see if he would notice (he didn’t for about 6 months). After he did notice I was able to convince him to give them away :D

EE February 23, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I hide my chocolate sometimes, but I’m not sure my hubby would like the unsweetened kind. Still, I’m not taking any chances. ;)

plamarie February 23, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I am wanting to try maca powder soo bad! Thanks for the info. I am really wanting some broccoli and millet now! I love that you put cinn. on it. I used to fix it for breakfast with butter, raisins, milk and brown sugar :o I suppose I could replace the sugar with stevia ;)

Mae (OhhMay.Wordpress) February 23, 2010 at 2:31 pm

I want to try maca so badly RIGHT NOW! Haha I feel another “ingredient of the week” coming on.

It sounds really delicious!

You crack me up with the bulk bin theivery. Hahaha I always go to the healthfood store after the gym and I’m so hungry I steal a dark chocolate almond cluster. Probably once a week. One day, I’ll actually buy some!
It’s okay though, because they charge me $3.50/avocado. It evens out in the end. ;-)

DiningAndDishing February 23, 2010 at 3:09 pm

haha when we were kids my mum used to hide food from us all the time! she would say, “if i don’t hide it, you guys will eat it.” isn’t that what food is for though?? :)

- Beth @ http://www.DiningAndDishing.com

Julie @ Pickley Pear February 23, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Holy veggies! The green smoothie is SO GREEN! I love green monsters, but definitely need to add a banana to mask the veggie flavor. No hiding of food here, I live alone!!

Anna February 23, 2010 at 3:19 pm

lol– I make my hub hide the chocolate from me :-)

I remember one time growing up, we my dad’s secret stash of Oreo’s…busted!!! :-)

Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle February 23, 2010 at 3:19 pm

I used to always hide the “good” snacks from my brother and sister back in the day! I swear having to share any treats my mom bought while growing up is the reason I eat so fast.. I was always trying to get the most.

Heather February 23, 2010 at 3:19 pm

I always hide food :) I’m known for saying “Mine!! Don’t touch!!” heheee

eaternotarunner February 23, 2010 at 3:20 pm

I have to try roasting frozen broccoli, what a great idea!!

I tried to hide my Nuttzo, but now the BF is obsessed and we are fighting over it ;-)

The Brunette February 23, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Eggs are definitely enough reason for me not to be a vegan. I just love runs all over whatever else is on my plate. Come to think of it, I think egg yolk is my sauce of choice! Another delicious looking day of food… I don’t know how you do it!

BroccoliHut February 23, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Ha! I totally hide food from my family when I’m at home. I don’t want my dad eating all my MixMyGranola!

Morgan @ Life After Bagels February 23, 2010 at 3:28 pm

my bf hides chips from me so I don’t gorge on them . . . and the pizza place that delivers to us also always sends a box of joe louies so I try to hide those from him

luckytastebuds February 23, 2010 at 3:37 pm

hahah oh Heabs you are way too cute. I have your realizations too, when i’m like – dude, it’s way too easy to become vegan, and then suddenly I remember i can’t have lobster rolls or scallops and oh so amazing taro frozen yogurt from Yogurtland. *sigh* Life as a vegan ain’t easy!!

I TOTALLY hide my little food things from my bf. He’ll come over to my apartment one day, open my freezer and be like, HOLY CRAP you have SO much stuff in here. When did you get this salmon?!?! And this bucket of almonds?!? Ooooops.

Graze With Me February 23, 2010 at 3:43 pm

I have to hide tofu from my husband when I buy it because he’s “morally opposed” to it. In his defense his parents are ranchers in Nebraska so he sees it as a meat substitute. I just like it in my smoothies!

I also realized that my hubby likes to eat my raw almonds when he’s feeling snacky….I buy them in larger containers now.

Ameena February 23, 2010 at 3:52 pm

TJ’s frozen broccoli is great because they have it in the organic variety too. I can easily get through half a bag of it but I am impressed you can do the whole thing!

I don’t have to hide anything because my husband doesn’t like any of the same foods as me! He thinks I eat weird stuff. :)

kathleen February 23, 2010 at 3:53 pm

I just finished my maca infused green smoothie! Same brain waves.

Allie (Protein Girl) February 23, 2010 at 4:03 pm

That green shake looks yummy! I love raw macadamia nuts. The only thing better than that is roasted salted mac nuts!

Rock on Raw Heabs.

Sarah Ikegami February 23, 2010 at 4:03 pm

Your meals look amazing, I love sweet potatoes and butternut squash for desserts, too! I don’t hide anything…actually, my husband SHOULD hide his french vanilla granola from ME!

Pure2Raw twins February 23, 2010 at 4:04 pm

OMG that smoothie looks and sounds amazing ;) The color is so pretty! You know we are HUGE fans of maca! Glad that you enjoyed some sauerkraut :) We just got broccoli the other day at the store to roast up! Can’t wait!

Melissa February 23, 2010 at 4:07 pm

I hide food from my kiddos…Im horrible I know..but hey I pushed out 10 pound babies on the floor of my bedroom sooooo Im thinkin I can hide a few food items :)

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Melissa, Yes, you’ve earned your hidden food. :)

musingsofthegranolagirl February 23, 2010 at 4:12 pm

That smoothie looks like slighted melted sherbert, yum!

I hide my bread from my roommates… I’ll buy a loaf and put it in the freezer and when I finally want a slice a month later it’ll all be gone! So I bury it deep under frozen brussel sprouts and chopped spinach :)

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) February 23, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I thought I was the only one that ate entire bags of veggies by myself in one sitting! Thank you for making me feel better about that! HHHMMMM I think I have a bag of broccoli in my freezer! Dinner!

Sarah February 23, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Did you roast the broc straight from the freezer? Or did you thaw it out first? I love roasted broc and am excited to hear about it.

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 5:45 pm

Sarah, Straight from the freezer to the oven. :)

homecookedem February 23, 2010 at 4:57 pm

Sweet taters for dessert?!! Great idea!! :) Yes, I hide things from Andrew… but shhh, don’t tell! ;)

missyrayn February 23, 2010 at 5:10 pm

I used to hide food from Hunni all the time since he would eat my snacks. Now I buy him his own and he’s okay.

eatmovelove February 23, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Yeah, eggs are a non-giver-upper for me….so is pretty much most meats ;)

I like how you said you like to keep up all guessing. And also that if you didn’t like the taste of Maca, you wouldn’t eat it.

Wise words. Foods should be enjoyed. So eat what tastes good to the palette :)

(p.s it’s the last night for my LUNA give-away if someone still wants to enter…I’m jealous of the give-away and want to win myself – boooo :) )

adrienmelaine February 23, 2010 at 5:34 pm

I hide quality chocolate or healthy snack type food- otherwise he’ll just eat it all and have no appreciation for the “health factor”.. if he was to appreciate it, maybe I’d feel differently, but replacing organic dark chocolate with kit kats just don’t cut it!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm

Adrien, Yes, that’s totally why I hide stuff from CD. He will mindlessly snack on raw macadamia nuts when he’d be just as happy with roasted cashews we buy in bulk from Costco. I just eat a few mac nuts at time and savor every bite.

April February 23, 2010 at 5:55 pm

I LOVE roasted broccoli! I just made THE best sweet potatoes tonight. I got the recipe off of KERF’s site.

Thicker slices, bake 350 for 30 mins, then 400 for 20 minutes. They were like pillows of heaven and better yet my hubs LOVED them. He’s a white potato sort of guy ;)

Dawn (HealthySDLiving) February 23, 2010 at 5:55 pm

Hmmm haha I don’t hide it FROM him but we do hide certain things together so that we don’t eat an entire candy bar orrr certain sweets! lol

Gabriela (froyolover) February 23, 2010 at 5:58 pm

Wow, those sweet potatoes look sooo good…
Mouth-watering! Haha!
Have a great night!
Brazilian XOXO´s,
Gabriela

Gina February 23, 2010 at 6:01 pm

Hey HEAB, don’t know what you’re paying for macadamia nuts but Barry Farms (on Amazon) offers a half lb for 6 bucks, which seems pretty reasonable. I also get the gums from them – cheap!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Thanks Gina, I think the raw macs are about $8 a pound at Whole Foods. So, I guess it’s not that bad.

Jackie February 23, 2010 at 6:09 pm

When my spousal unit isn’t home, I eat a huge bowl of steamed broccoli! I mainly do it because its super easy, tasty and totally filling.

I do hide food. According to the man, it shows signs of problems with foods. According to me it shows that sometimes I buy tasty snacks, and I want to be the one who eats them! Sometimes I work later hours than he does and he’ll snack before I come home. I also usually work 1 weekend day. I also have sensitivities to wheat and soy, he has none. He’d be fine with any sort of junk food (which I never buy!) but will pretty much eat anything if its out in the open/cupboard. Right before I read this post I totally hid my Popchips in my office. :)

Nicole @ Making Good Choices February 23, 2010 at 7:13 pm

I love maca – i have to say I did have to acquire a taste for it that took about a week. the first time I tried it in my yogurt I thought it was gross, but now i really like it. I think it was the smell that threw me off. I hide veges in food from my husband all the time. If he can’t really tell what it is he doesn’t want to know until after he eats it!

Nicole February 23, 2010 at 7:22 pm

I love maca. Yum! Do they sell it at Whole Foods?
And I love sweet potatoes. I used to eat them all the time and stopped when I started eating more pumpkin (in the fall) but I’ve been craving them lately. And seeing you eat them so much makes me want them more. Guess I’ll be stopping by the store tomorrow after work!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Nicole, Yes, I’ve seen maca in the supplement section at my Whole Foods. However, much cheaper online!!!

Lily @ Lily 's Health Pad February 23, 2010 at 7:40 pm

Whoa is that SIAB GREEN.

Ick. Maca. I don’t know how you eat it.

eatmovelove February 23, 2010 at 8:48 pm

What is MAca exactly anyways and why so popular?? Seriously, I don’t know where you Bloggers find this stuff or hear about it half the time haha :) !!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Eatmovlove, I linked to a post all about maca. You can click on the link to read more about it. I’m very interested in alternative medicine and nutrition, and I read all the research I can. That’s how I find out about supplements like maca.

Lola February 23, 2010 at 9:26 pm

If I could eat more of the fun treats I used to love, then yes I would hide stuff– but right now there isn’t anything worth hiding!! But I DO hide ice cream in the freezer so hubby doesn’t eat it all at once. He loooooves Turtle Mt coconut ice cream and I always buy a bunch when they are on sale and then hide them under my frozen hunks of beef and chickens :-) hehehe. He had no idea. Otherwise he’d eat them all in one weekend!!
Heaby, just wondering, do you buy organic produce? I know you eat tons of veggies (esp the green ones, my fav!) just wondering what you think about organic.
Love love!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Hey Lola. :) I do not buy all organic…it’s too expensive. I buy it when it’s available and not too pricey. Our grocery budget is already pretty steep…I could only imagine what it would be if we bought all organic. That being said, I do feel strongly about our meats and dairy – only organic and grass fed finished when possible.

Megan February 23, 2010 at 9:57 pm

Yep, I always hide goodies. Sometimes I just don’t want to share. Thankfully my boyfriend does not really like sweet stuff and he is not all that into most of the the foods I like but I still like to hide it from him.

Mandiee February 23, 2010 at 9:59 pm

ahaha I love the vegan comment! I was just thinking to myself “omg that looks soooo good! i’ve got to try that dinner sometime because i would totallllly love that.” i’d say you called that one :D . but hey, you know what works for you and that’s what matters. keep doing what you’re doing, girl, because obviously it’s working :) .
have a lovely day!
p.s. i have no clue how you live without broccoli. i must have it everday or i just don’t feel complete. good thing you have a new method for hiding your love :) . oh! that reminds me. do you know of any good steamers?

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 23, 2010 at 10:01 pm

Mandiee, I use a steamer pot that came with the set of pots and pans my Dad got me for Christmas. Not sure where he purchased them, but you can get a basic stove-top steamer at Target. I’ve bought several there – usually around $40 or $50.

Megan February 23, 2010 at 10:12 pm

Roasting your broccoli in coconut oil? What a great idea! I know what I’m having for dinner tonight. ;)

I typically don’t have to hide food from my husband, but I have to hide his food from myself! We have a special cabinet in our kitchen, called the “fat cabinet,” where we hide all his tempting treats!! Ha ha.

famishedtofantastic February 23, 2010 at 11:05 pm

I love to make my smoothies with Maca, Dark chocolate cocoa powder and cinnamon! Yum!

famishedtofantastic February 23, 2010 at 11:08 pm

I find using Maca every day has helped my depression. I still take an antidepressent but the Maca has done something no meds have been able to do. Love the stuff!

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) February 24, 2010 at 12:22 am

Yes, macadamias are heavenly and about the same price as diamonds or emeralds. Sigh.

I don’t have to hide anything from Derek- he has no desire for my eats! Even the yummy sugar-filled ones- he likes the british stuff and that’s it!

caronae February 24, 2010 at 1:29 am

I live by myself in a tiny dorm room so the only person I have to hide food from is myself, lol! I have to hide my trail mixes and chocolate so I don’t eat them all at once :)

Katy @ These Beautiful Feet February 24, 2010 at 7:31 am

I haven’t hide to hide food from my husband…yet. He pretty much eats everything I eat, although if I called it vegan, he wouldn’t probably. Which is pretty silly if you ask me, but oh well! I LOVE your comment on why you couldn’t make the switch to 100% vegan. A woman after my own heart..a heart of light colored creamy coffee and cream cheese. ;)

Lily February 24, 2010 at 7:50 am

This is maybe a ridiculous question, but do you use any oil or anything when you roast your broccoli? At all? It doesn’t look like it, I’m just scared it’d catch on fire or something if I assume that!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 24, 2010 at 7:58 am

Lily, I always use coconut oil for roasting and stir-frys. Usually about 1/2 TBSP per 1 ton of veggies. :)

Carolyn February 24, 2010 at 8:27 am

..i send food to the office with my husband for safe keeping. The only person i have to hide it from is me!!!

pippapatchwork February 24, 2010 at 8:36 am

Mmm, that smoothie looks delicious! I love macadamia nuts, too–but you’re right, they’re pricey!

Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 24, 2010 at 8:41 am

Your sweet potatoes look amazing!! Love them. I swear I could eat them every single day. And it’s just like a bonus that they are so good for you :D
I don’t have a significant other but I have to hide food from my dad.. he eats everything in sight!

Sagan February 24, 2010 at 8:45 am

I totally hide food from my roommate. I have secret stashes in the pantry so he won’t find stuff :D But then I feel kinda bad because he always offers me the food that HE has. Ah well.

I LOVE my morning green breakfast shake. I just started doing it about a month ago and it is such a nice way to start the day. Of course, usually I have some toast or something alongside it, but it’s still nice to get in those greens AND some fluids first thing in the morning.

Lara February 24, 2010 at 8:45 am

Did you thaw the broccoli first?
I used to hide food back in my compulsive eating days. Parially out of greed and partially out of not wanting him to know I was eating so much (especially sweets) Luckily I kicked that bad habit to the curb.

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 24, 2010 at 9:38 am

Lara, Nope, broccoli goes straight from the freezer to the oven. :)

Jennifer Trigo February 24, 2010 at 9:44 am

so weird…I was just thinking to make a green smoothie. great minds think alike! Mine contained collards, cucumber, avocado and soy milk. I am not really drinking too much dairy lately and I don’t really miss it, but I do worry about enough calcium intake and collards are a good source for it.
So I tell myself….If you don’t want to drink your milk, then drink your veggies!

I was going to toss 3 eggs in there but I ended up cooking them and adding some salsa. :P

I need to go buy some mint. Every time I blend green stuff, especially cucumbers, I want to add mint to it. Super good!

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 24, 2010 at 9:52 am

Jennifer, Mint…good idea. It would be so refreshing with the cucumbers!

Sarah (from See Sarah Eat) February 24, 2010 at 9:47 am

I don’t have to hide anything because my husband would not eat any of my “healthy” stuff, ha ha. But sometimes he hides stuff from me that I wouldn’t “approve” of but I usually still find it by accident, ha ha.

I love your eats and I love that you always keep us guessing too :)

Marissa February 24, 2010 at 1:15 pm

Matt and I don’t live together so I don’t hide food from him. I have tried to hide food IN his food though. I tried putting Maca in his smoothie the other day and he saw it and asked why I was ruining his dessert. He hates maca. I tell him it is GOOD for him, and he says he will eat it separately but never to ruin his smoothie with it ;-)

I <3 the flavor of maca. it tastes like kettle corn to me.

Susan February 24, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Your blog has the best veggie porn around. Brussels and sweet potatoes = foodgasm!

Gena February 24, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Oh, how I love every little component of this magnificent day of food!

LindsayRuns February 24, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Your eats look soo good! I want to try maca really badly. I hide food sometimes… But more like I hide the junk so he gets it spaced out and not all in one binge! My baby loves chocolate :)

Jessica @ Fit & Clean February 24, 2010 at 8:23 pm

I love my maca. I got mine at Amazon as well! Cheap! I hide my food from my kids sometimes. But mostly no one’s interested in what I eat…so it’s not an issue. And most of the time, my pantry’s a mess (3 kids!) so they don’t know where to find my good stuff :)

kristilyn February 25, 2010 at 4:29 pm

I should definitely switch to frozen broccoli … the other day I took some out of the fridge to roast and the husband came in and immediately said, “What’s that smell? It smells like garbage!” as I sadly gazed at my broccoli.

Oh well … it still tasted awesome.

K

Heather Eats Almond Butter February 25, 2010 at 5:39 pm

Kristilyn, Haha – our husbands would get along very well! ;)

Bekah February 26, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Brussels, broccoli and sweet potatoes oh my! Three of my faves! Mmmm and coconut butter. I may have already gone through 1/4 of my coconut butter jar in one week since getting it. GAH, so good! I’ve been putting it on my spinach and broccoli from the salad bar and microwaving it in my room. It is the perfect after dinner meal.

Jill March 2, 2010 at 7:21 pm

I love that you admit hiding food from CD. Joe thinks I am nuts for this. If I don’t hide stuff I’d like to eat later, I come home and it is completely gone – chocolate. I can make my stash last weeks on end. He eats all his in a day or two and then begs me for mine. Ugh..men.
