Wednesday Eats, Kale Chips with Sunflower Seeds

Everyone is talking about all the rage. I wanted to be part of that world too.

As many bloggers must write about what their Wednesday Eats (explain that to me), I’m totally going to jump in. I LOVE food. Who doesn’t love food? Pssssh, this girl does!

This may or may not be true. ;)

PS I am a food blogger… :)

So, here we go:

I’ve been addicted to chocolate for breakfast for the past few weeks, so I created a healthy and satisfying smoothie to give my taste buds a hand.

Just because peanut butter and chocolate go together like cheese and pretzels. Yup, one of my favorite snacks!

A few days ago for lunch, I made this delicious salad. I used Near East Falafel Mix and BAM! Things were booming in the kitchen!

I found out you can freeze them, so I re-created my salad for today. What’s inside: arugula (my fav green!), cranberries, feta cheese, falafel’s and ranch dressing. AND FULL

Tip for freezing: Staple the directions to the outside of the bag for easy re-heating!

I nibbled here and there throughout the rest of the day. Sometimes out of boredom, sometimes because the kids wanted snacks, sometimes just because.

  • Grapes
  • Oranges
  • Pistachios. My kids and I are nuts about them. (Slap forehead now).
  • Cheese stick
  • Yogurt
  • Boiled egg

Whatever I grabbed, I did. So for dinner, I made GF chicken nuggets for the kiddos and I had a whopping bowl of kale. Did that depress you? My dinner choice was kale? I didn’t realize I was going to eat 4 cups of kale chips. I shared with the kids, if that helps?

Hubby wasn’t home so I “downed” dinner. To what I was hungry for instead of a big feast!



I guess I could have served some grilled chicken or something on the side…maybe next time.

To the recipe we go:

The whole 4 cups I ate, I’m telling ya. Anyways, if you want more of a salty taste, use up to 1 tsp garlic salt or any seasoned salt will do. Yuuuummm, o yum!

WARNING: Adding more garlic salt will cause your mouth to rock and may even push people and/or vampires away.

And you have been warned!

What do you think? Yay or nay? That was my first ever 5k btw, before you answer  (GUILT TRIP!)….LOL

And finally, I wanted to tell you about The Mint Shop, who pulled together  80+ Recipes for Cold and Flu Remedies! I really do love this! Being a Holistic Health Coach, I’m all about natural remedies.

80+ Natural Remedies for Cold & Flu Season

  • Do you make your own cough drops?
  • Juice for Immunity?
  • Or what to drink when you are feeling under the weather?

Not only do you want to read this, but they also have really cool Eco-friendly products that I am goo goo about.

I really do love this shop. I would, if I could, purchase everything in there. My favorite Eco-friendly items are glass food containers, natural kid toys and even make-up. Yes, all Eco-friendly. Be sure to check them out!

Disclosure: The Wild Mint Shop used one of my links in their 80+ Remedies, I am super excited to make the list! (2nd one this week! Do you know which one I am?) All opinions and my love for the Earth and the Wild Mint Shop’s products are my own.

Question: Do you eat garlic to scare the vampires away or for health reasons?

I don’t judge. ;)
