Highlights of the Week

How’s (late Saturday night) or Sunday going for you my sweet bloggie friends?  I am really having a great weekend so far!  As I had mentioned I would be doing, I went to yoga on Saturday morning.  I loved being in the company of other yogis, which admittedly has been a little dry since moving to Phoenix 8 weeks ago.  But I enjoyed myself so much, I am going back Sunday morning!  Yay for yoga!  Then, as if yoga two days in a row in a studio wasn’t cool enough, I am meeting up with a fellow Phoenix blogger.  We somehow realized we both live in Phoenix and so we’ve got a coffee meetup planned.  Yay for new friends!  What’s on your agenda for Sunday?

I am really glad you were getting your “spaghetti” groove on with my Raw Vegan Pasta Noodles & Raw Marinara.  And for those of you who are interested in a spiralizer, that little bugger is the best 29.99 I’ve spent in a long time, for sure.  Christmas list anyone?

And thanks for clue-ing me in about what your go-to dinners and quick meals were.  I loved reading what everyone grabs and gravitates to in a pinch!

So as promised, let’s talk about the Highlights of my Week in Food.  If you missed last week’s recap, here is is.  

But for this week:
Monday I gave Thanksgiving dessert new meaning with my Vegan No-Bake Pumpkin Pie (Gluten & Soy Free)


Tuesday I rocked out the Vegan Fajitas with Sweet-Ginger Lime Sauce


Wednesday I sweetened up your world with the 5 Minute Raw Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Thursday was a Veggie Medley starting with  Dehydrated Kale Chips

Fresh Massaged Kale Salad

And Roasted Sweet Potato Fries and Sweet Potato Curly Fries

Friday I graced you with the Raw Vegan Dark Chocolate Coconut Snowballs 

And I made some Dark Chocolate Macaroons


Saturday I posted Raw Vegan Pasta Noodles & Raw Marinara


and no meal would be complete without Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Today I made some Butterfinger Oats for Scott.  1/3 c dry oats, cooked with 2/3 c water.  Swirled in cinnamon, brown sugar, and topped with a 1/2 banana, 1/4 c butterscotch chips, and 1 leftover Halloween Butterfinger bar that I crumbled on top.  Not really healthfood or anything but Scott loves this weekend treat!

And just because I didn’t get enough yoga in at the studio today (kidding).  Yoga Here Today is Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose)

Tip of the Day: My Chia Seed GiveAway!!!!!  If you’re not already entered, go get your pretty self entered for a 3 Pound Bag of Chia Seeds!!!!!   Contest ends Sunday so hurry!!!!!!!!!!

What’s your Highlight of the Week?  Not necessarily food, but just something that you really savor and enjoy?  For me, it’s the 4 hours either Saturday or Sunday morning/midday that Scott takes Skylar and I am not mom, I am just Averie.  I get to do whatever I want with my free time!  Undoubtedly I try to get ahead on veggie chopping and carrot peeling and spend time in the kitchen doing boring things but I try to get out and do yoga, meetup with someone, browse through non-kiddie stores like Bebe or Victoria’s Secret, drink a Starbucks alone without singing the ABCs, you know, just enjoy my few hours alone!  What’s your Highlight of the Week?

  1. Re: your kale chips, BEST NEW RECIPE I have tried in ages. You are a genius. I can't stop shoving them in my face!!


  2. Averie I made the chocolate coconut snowballs yesterday and it turned out amazing! I thought they tasted better when frozen/refridgerated because the flavors kind of absorbed together. It's so delish!

  3. Just catching up now baby — I am SO excited for you on the possible job opportunity :) I had a good feeling about your job apps — don't know why.. Just call me miss cleo :)

    that is absolutely adorable that you are the peanut are going to a pottery class!! Can't wait to see what you whip up! Perhaps a new oats bowl?!

    I [ try ] to be a creative person. In HS I was really involved in the art program in my school — unfortunately at college I haven't had the same opportunites :( it's sad really, I'm thinking of taking some classes at the art studio in my town but they are crazy expensive. Perhaps that should go on my christmas list :) hmmmm…

    Okay this comment is a legit novel — ciao for now love!

  4. Have fun at your pottery class! I seriously can't wait to hear about this possible yoga job!

    I've never been a big pottery girl, but my mom did teach me how to knit when I was little and I love nothing more than zoning out in front of the tv and knitting up a storm!

  5. Congrats on the yoga gig. I knew you would get it.

    Love the pottery making. I used to have a bit of a paint 'n pottery addiction myself. Some of it has been seen displaying food on my blog.

    How did you get your hands on all these new Larabar flavors? They just carry the basics around here. I can understand the crumbling factor, as certain ingredients just have a tendency to do that.

    For example, I ended up with some different textures when I made my raw play dough. I think the apricot one was the crumbliest.

  6. I love half moon pose but I don't think my legs feel the same way. Do you usually flow from half moon to standing split? Every class I have ever taken flows like that and I hate standing split. I need a new way to flow. Any tips?

  7. I made tahini dressing today too, but it wasn't that thrilling… I think I may take your idea to add some vegenaise! It makes everything taste better, does it not? ;)

  8. I'm always looking for new salad dressings! I need to go buy some tahini…I had a bad experience with it once and have been scared to use it again :( I will try it now!

    Yummmy snowballs. Those look ooey gooey and delicious.

    Have a good night!

  9. I saw the live feed on the right hand side of the screen… I look like a stalker! I'm really enjoying your site. :) Just made the chocolate chip cookie balls. YUM. Eyeballing the sugar snap pea recipe now.

  10. this is the way a blog should be! thanks!
