Just another manic monday…

I wish it were Sunday… my i don’t have to run day.

Hi guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m so glad you all enjoyed my prom re-cap (parts one, two and three).

I have still got a couple of straggler photograph’s left over from The Singing Bowl. Oh how I miss thee.

The BLT

Tempeh bacon, lettuce and tomato on whole wheat bread, with pesto.

Crazy delicious make your own pita sandwich.

On whole wheat pita I had adzuki bean spread, avocado, roasted red peppers, vegan cheddar cheese, banana peppers and spinach. Holy moly!

This was quite possibly the best sandwich that I have ever eaten!

So today I had a crazy day of running around!

I played un-intentional hooky from school today (I was going to go in tardy, but ended up losing track of time), and i ended up shopping for six straight hours. What was I looking for? My graduation dress. With only fifteen days of school left I still hadn’t found the dress that I am going to be wearing under my cap and gown. So many choices!

This little number by Lauren Conrad.

I just adore the colors of this dress, and the braiding of the halter.

Sweet and simple. But its white which I guarantee I would ruin in under three minutes.

Review Alert!

I was totally unprepared for today’s shop-a-thon. Usually i will pack a snack like trail mix, or a bar or something in my bag to tide me over. But today I had nothing. Eep! A quick trip to target had me coming out with this… a Cool Mint Chocolate Cliffbar.

Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Syrup, ClifProยฎ (Soy Rice Crisps [Soy Protein Isolate, Rice Flour, Barley Malt Extract], Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soy Flour), Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Soy Butter, Chocolate Cookies (Organic Oat Flour, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Sunflower Oil, Cocoa, Unsweetened Chocolate, Salt, Baking Soda, Soy Lecithin, Natural Flavors), ClifCrunchยฎ (Apple Fiber, Organic Oat Fiber, Organic Milled Flaxseed, Inulin [Chicory Extract], Psyllium), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Organic Fig Paste, Icing (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Cocoa Butter, Soy Flour, Soy Lecithin, Natural Flavors), Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Green Tea Extract (50mg caffeine equivalent).

This tasted just like a thin mint girl scout cookie (which used to be my favorite, and sadly aren’t vegan. hmm… maybe I should try to veganize them? ;)) I loved how the chocolate flavor wasn’t over powered by the delicate minty-ness. Plus it only has 250 calories per bar and 10g of protein. It kept me well energized and satied until I could get home to eat lunch.

The verdict? Would I buy this flavor again? Yes please! I would so buy this again, this has to go on my list of favorite Cliffbar flavors.

Check out my other Cliffbar reviews here.

The biggest cookie pie ever, from The Singing Bowl of course!

Literally it was bigger than both of my palms, it took me over four days to eat it even with the help of Earth Mama, who was happy to oblige.

I hope you all had a wonderful mother’s day, and to all of you mama’s out there I hope you were able to celebrate it with your family. Despite having to work all day, I was still able to spend some quality time with my mom, and to try out some new recipes in the kitchen!

To come my mothers day meal re-cap! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I don’t care for Clif bars at all. To me they taste like packaged cookies. There’s a lot of vegan dark chocolate on the market, which suits me fine for snacks, especially if it includes nuts. I’ve been munching the dark chocolate sun cups (like Reese cups but with sunflower seed butter, organic, and no nasty mystery ingredients). Mmmmm. I can’t find any brand name other than “Sun Cups”.

  2. That pita looks out of this world!! I saw tempeh bacon last I was in the co-op but passed on it because I was feeling frugal. I’ll have to give it a try next time, though ๐Ÿ™‚
    And pretty dresses! I do love the white one, as well as the one above it; love that braiding.
    I’ve not yet had a Clif bar, but there are two in my cupboard waiting for me! carrot cake and oatmeal raisin. I just wish they didn’t have so much soy in them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Can’t wait to see the mother’s day recap ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love the dresses! I think the white it my favorite, but I totally understand the “I’d ruin it in minutes.” thing.

    As for Clif Bars, I really like chocolate chip or maple nut, but I haven’t actually tried the others… ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. the dresses are so pretty! i love them all but i think the first one is my favorite. your sando looks SO delish. i want to go to the singing bowl noww. i’m totally up for veganizing thin mints as well. yumm!

    have a lovely day!
    xox

  5. Yum! All of that food looks so yummy – especially the cookie bar sandwich! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Those dresses are gorgeous – my fav is the first one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Okay, this is random…but your skin is beautiful and so soft/smooth looking and such a good complexion! How do you do it? haha, do you use a certain moisturizer or soap? =P

  6. Oooh I love the lauren conrad dress, it’s so pretty!
    Haven’t tried that flav of cliff bars yet, but i’ve heard that before–that it tastes like thin mints! Will need to try!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Ho-ly panini! Those look like yummers!! (Did you make your own azuki paste, or did you buy it? I’ve never heard of it, and I’m Japanese!) Or is it just the paste in a little bag? (now that, I’ve seen) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I like the second dress! The braided part is really cute!

    I did like the cool mint cliff bar, but I think I like chocolate chip cookies and/or brownies. ๐Ÿ™‚ (rarely have them anymore because I’d rather eat wholesome food or just plain chocolate) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have you tried the macadamia and/or the carrot cake one? I liked both, and I remember liking the macadamia (w/white chocolate, I think?) one! (btw, what does “The verdict?” mean?)

    Holy huge! That’s huuuuuge!!! :-O What was the flavor/taste of it? It looks like a yummer, though! โค

    P.S: I seriously did NOT get your email yet! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  8. Lol– I wore that first dress to a wedding this weekend!! Check out my blog for pics! I got several compliments on it, so I’d recommend it– although they’re all really cute!

  9. i love the braided dress… i think you should go with that one!

    i am in love with Cliff bars… there has not been a Cliff bar that I have not fallen in love with and declared ‘oh this one is my new favorite’

  10. I’m obsessed with that Lauren Conrad dress…so cute, and it fits you perfectly too! I love the white chocolate macadamia, oatmeal raisin and carrot cake Clifs…they do an awesome job on all their flavors, I just wish they were a tad more natural! Hope you have a great week love ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I’m actually not a super huge fan of Clif Bars. I’ve wanted to like them but they still remain only “okay” to me and not something I’ll go out of my way to buy.

    I love that white dress! It’s simple but so cute. The one by Lauren Conrad would be my second favorite. Pretty and summery. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Your pita looks delicious! I’m already thinking about making a cousin of that for lunch…
    And thanks for the Clif bar review!
    I’m about to check out all your other Clif reviews…so far I’ve tried the blueberry one and the chocolate chip. Blueberry is amazing!
    I honestly tasted that thing, and the texture and all, and just about cried. Ha ha. It was like, “I didn’t know there was anything this amazing out there!”
    But the mint one sounded strange…
    So, glad to know it’s good!
    Do you like Luna bars much?

    Anyway, thanks for the review!
    Have a great Wednesday!

  13. just wanted to say you look SO pretty in your prom dress ๐Ÿ™‚ oh and your graduation dress of course!! I still need to buy mine haha..but its okay I still have until the end of june sadly.

    the choc. mint clif bar is my favorite!! just like a thin mint

  14. I love all 3 dresses..so cute! I am the same way with white..well I guess any color. I am messy and always spill on myself.
    I have never seen a mint chocolate clif bar. That sounds delish!
