Another marvelous Monday morning is upon us.
I’m kind of not looking forward to getting up early tomorrow, but such is life.
I woke up this morning ready to eat. For some reason, I was feeling super ravenous this morning; good thing I had some breakfast that I prepped the night before.
A few people asked about my buckwheat bowl I made on Wednesday. It’s super simple.
Vegan Buckwheat Bowl
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
- 1 tablespoon hemp protein powder
- 1/2 teaspoon stevia
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/3 cup pumpkin or mashed banana
- 1/2 cup water/milk (you may need a bit extra-just go by texture)
Mix the dry ingredients (including chia seeds) together, add the pumpkin and milk and lightly spray a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for about 5 minutes.
You could also make this in the oven and bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Depending on your oven.
I prefer the microwave version, since it’s done a lot faster, but whatever works for you!
Of course, finish off with toppings of your choice! My favorite will always be peanut flour!
This weekend ended up being a nice change of pace for once, since it was pretty relaxing. A much appreciated switch up every now and again, especially since the holidays were pretty eventful.
For lunch I’ve been enjoying my roasted veggie bowls, since it is SO cold here! Although not cold enough for snow, which I’ve been dreaming about. I seriously want those white flakes to come visit so bad. I’m odd. It’s just that whenever there’s a tiny bit of snow over here, basically everything gets cancelled. So that would be kind of cool.
Got a little off track there…this bowl had roasted broccoli slaw, zucchini, turkey burger, quinoa (I’m getting a little sick of quinoa now), nutritional yeast, coconut oil, and a little dill. Avocado on the side.
My parents ended up having a low key weekend too, so I decided it would be a good opportunity to spend some more family time together. It just so happens that my Mom shares the same coffee addiction I have (I guess we know where I get that trait from).
We of course had to make a trip to our favorite coffee place over the weekend. I feel like I haven’t been in so long, since I typically will only go there on the weekends now that I have my handy dandy Verismo. Love that thing.
Coffee is my saving grace. Especially since I’m the worst sleeper ever. I’ll learn eventually.
Amanda also made sure I got hooked on her favorite tea, which means I managed to order some online since I can’t buy any in stores here.
Dang, it’s not like I need another thing to be obsessed with, but alas I have. It’s okay Amanda I’ll forgive you.
Now, I have plans to catch up on Downton Abbey. Well I guess not catch up, but start it up.
I’ve been hearing nothing but great things about this show, I thought it would be appropriate to start since it’s at my house right now. Might as well take advantage of having that DVD and watch it.
Confession; I totally thought it was called Downtown Abbey, but then was embarrassed when someone laughed and informed me it’s called Downton Abbey.
I must have been too lazy to correctly read the title all this time.
With that, I hope you have a marvelous Monday!
Do you like spending weekends low key or out and about?
