Here’s something I love:

who has ever spelt "Nikki" this way?

Apparently this is how they spell it in Paso Robles. Crazy winos.

A reusable coffee holder! It’s like a cute little scarf for my cup. I try to bring my thermos to get coffee since I think it’s pretty wasteful to get a paper cup EVERYDAY if you know you’re going to go buy a drink EVERYDAY. So for those times when my thermos is not handy, I have my reusable holder. I like that it makes me feel like I’m still making a tiny difference in the world of waste. Speaking of “Tiny”… here’s a pic of my pup!

Tiny was trying to get in on my yoga practice. He thought I should be practicing petting him instead

It should be obvious by now that I am a HUGE frittata fan. There’s nothing easier in this world than tossing some veggies and eggs into a skillet and then baking it to lovely perfection in the oven. Well, pop tarts might be easier… but this is The CLEAN Plate, not The Industrial Food-Product Covered In Dyes and Preservatives Plate (though that does have a nice ring to it…)

So, yes… frittatas are mega easy. Go make one. If you don’t know how… check out the recipes below. They’re free!

I made this one because I had a TON of fresh herbs and some tomatoes that, honestly, didn’t taste that good. We’re at the end of the tomato season, so it’s to be expected. When you have produce that doesn’t taste too great raw, cooking it will usually bring out more flavor! Just like my Peach Jam, this tomato frittata gives new life to flavorless produce.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.

Blend:
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
•
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
•
