A Day of Food Blogs

Today, I tried to use a new recipe from a different food blog at each meal!

Breakfast: Buckwheat Bake

  • 1/4 cup  buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/2  tbsp. of ground flax meal
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla soy milk
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

I blended the above in a food processor and placed the mixture in microwavable bowl sprayed with oil and cooked it for 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave(weird, right!).  With a little agave nectar drizzled on top- it tasted like a cake with the added bonus of protein and fiber!  Thank you Edible Perspective for this recipe!

For lunch I made Elise and I-  Summer Red Quinoa( made with regular quinoa) on top of a bed of arugula sprinkled with FoodShouldTasteGood chips.

For dessert: chickpea blondies from LiveLaughEat. They turned out pretty well, but I think next time I’ll make them in a smaller dish, and add almonds.

This afternoon I made Pea Hummus. Kath’s recipe had lavender which I exchanged extra cilantro and 1 tsp. of olive oil! Pea hummus tastes like spring- I love it! I forgot to take a picture- oop! Smile

For dinner I made panang curry with edamame, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, and onions over brown rice noodles.  It wasn’t from a blog, but it tasted pretty good!

I’ve got an early client and then a spin class! I’m off to bed!

Note: Happy Birthday Jamie!

Oh what a fun food day! That’s such a great idea, I’m definitely going to designate a weekend day Food Blog Day, too. Thanks!

Good for you! I’ve been meaning to have a “Day of blogger recipes” haha :) I also want to try Kath’s pea hummus – looked so yummy, light, and healthy.

What a fantastic idea, Meg! I barely cook once per day, so I may have to do a Food Bloggers Week instead :)
