The past few days have been crazy busy, but I am enjoying getting back to my normal eating habits. My body has kind of been in a vegetable shock, but I know it's going to be getting back to normal any day now.
My days have been full of overnight oats:
served in awesomely cool margarita glasses from here. They could have been one of my favorite actual presents from the wedding.
Coffee may have been consumed in a cup from Cancun...
|the husband told me today i like my coffee too strong - meh.|
I missed my hummus as well...
My afternoon snacks have been all over the place - I have been a grazer...
Another bowl of overnight oats was consumed this morning - this bowl was so pretty.. and pretty delicious too might I add!
I was over at my parent's house for lunch today and my mom made me some veggies and rice - they were really good, but I was super hungry because of my workout. They are unpictured because I'm a horrible blogger and was too hungry to even say hello to mommasita.
When I got home, I was still hungry so I decided I would eat some crackers, carrots, and hummus.
|try this... x like 5|
I may or may not have also swirled my finger around in the tub to make sure I got it all.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... don't judge me. :)
|quite possibly the best hummus ever|
I wanted to make something easy today because I was also making a coffee cake for tomorrow morning (recipe to come!), so I decided to go with the slow cooker!

- 1 zucchini, cut into large chunks
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- spices: pepper, salt, garlic, crushed red pepper, chili powder
- avocado or meat of your choice to go on top
- Put everything in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours.

|simple ingredients at their best|
|chicken for the husband|
|avocado for me!|
This was really filling and I will definitely be making it again. We have some left overs, so I'm sure it could feed four people comfortably. This was inspired by Kath as I remembered a recipe she made kind of like this!
It's been nothing less than busy around here, and I have to go get some things done. Off to do laundry! Oh the joys of marriage... :)
I'll be honest... I don't have a question for you all today. My brain is in a fog.
