What I Ate Wednesday: Fiber Choice 30 Day Get Picky Challenge

Hello Darlings!

You may have seen this post where I accepted the Fiber Choice 30 Day Get Picky Challenge of adding a fiber supplement into daily routine. Now that I’m nearing the end of the thirty days of the challenge I’d love to share my experience thus far, and how better to do that to show what I’ve been eating?!

Meatless Monday: Honey-Balsamic Glazed Figs & Homemade Whipped Cream

Hello Darlings!

It is fig season! *Does a little happy dance* I love figs, their versatility (did you see them as a pizza topping?), how robust their flavor is without being overpowering, and, of course, they are gorgeous to boot!

Summer Drink Series: Lavender-Peach Spritzer

Hello Darlings!

Now, I know I’m not in Georgia but I still think that the smell of peaches is summer’s perfume. Fresh, sweet, not too overpowering, it blends well with an incredible amount of things and yet is still perfect on its own. Its well documented here on Chickadee Says that lavender is one of my favorite flowers and my favorite flavors (if you follow me on Instagram you might notice I have a slight obsession with lavender kombucha) so, the combination of peaches and lavender, to me, is heaven. Add a bit of vodka, and you’ve got a party I most definitely want to attend.

Meatless Monday: Sautéed Vegetable Quinoa

Hello Darlings!

This summer has been crazy, and this upcoming week even more so! I am really bad about eating when I get super busy because I tend to graze- eating whatever is close by and easy rather than eating more nutritiously. So I decided to help myself out a bit and make big batches of delicious food so I have something quick to grab when I’m hungry that will both fill me and fuel me!

Summer Drink Series: Summer Citrus Sangria

Hello Darlings!

After I graduated from college I decided I didn’t want to be a full-fledged adult yet, so I bought a plane ticket to Spain and spent a few months in Barcelona before backpacking across Europe. I loved the culture of Barcelona, full of late night tapas bars, afternoon siestas, and street performers displaying spectacular costumes, there was always something new and exciting happening. The food and drink, mirrored the excitability of Barca’s residents, each day brought a new fantastic cocktail recipe and I fell in love with sangria, both traditional recipes and new-fangled craft-cocktail-esque variations as well!
