Got Veggies?

29 comments

Hello!

I’ve already put in a 7 hour work day and it is only 1pm! Love it. :) This may persuade me to get up much earlier from now on. Although, I will miss my late nights. I don’t typically go to bed until midnight. I just love staying up late! I also love the early mornings though, so I am in quite a pickle.

What is your sleep-wake schedule like?

Mine is typically Bed: @ midnight…Wake @ 7:30am.

I was feeling very ‘veggie’ today, so I decided to make a veggie platter with a few sides. I have been slacking in the fresh veggie department lately, opting for frozen veggies, but this meal reminded me how easy and quick it is to chop up some fresh veggies and throw them onto a plate.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 organic tomato
  • 1/2 English cuke
  • Leftover stir-fry from Sunday night’s dinner
  • Salsa (not shown)

Yum.

After my second bite, I decided this platter needed salsa so I jumped up and got some. It was fun to mix with the avocado and hummus.

Oh man, oh man was this lunch ever tasty! Veggies are pure heaven to me. I am curious to see how long this stays with me since it was so veggie heavy. I’ll report back the scientific findings. ;)

I designed some new labels for my Glo Bars today.

Check it out!

Here are 150+ Glo Bars all packaged up. I need to label them now. I also have a couple more batches left to make this afternoon.

I also did a quick bakery supply run, registered for a tax course, and did some US package stalking. ;)

I’m off to label these bars up.

Hope you are having a ‘glowing’ day!

Love your new labels – I think you are really witty with your words (“on the glo”, for example.) So cute!

That veggie platter looks amazing! I find the Green Monsters stay with me, and salads too… but sometimes JUST raw veggies leave a gnawing in my belly!

So nice to see a fellow Canadian representing in the blog world!! I love. xo

I love veggie platter lunches! :-)

They are not the best staying power but all you need to do to fix that is enjoy an afternoon snack!

I fall asleep while reading sometime around 10PM and I wake up at 6AM – a solid 8 hours. Now that I’m older I find that I’m keeping my mother’s hours. How sad is that?

I usually go to bed around 11 and then get up at 6:45. But I am the worst sleeper and wake up at least 5 times a night!

Busy bee!

I usually go to bed around 10 and wake up at 6 – I need my 8 hours! On the weekends I’ll sleep longer and I love it. Nothing better than a lazy weekend morning of sleeping in and then a nice breakfast.

You’re so cute! I love early mornings, especially for going out for a run! I am usually in bed by 11 and up by 7 or so, but I’ve had phases where i went to bed at 10 and got up at 6, and of course in college went to bed waaaaaaaay too late and slept in until 9 or 10! Glo Bars look wonderful :)

I love making veggie platters and dipping and munching away! They definitely don’t last long though. Except root veggies. A whack of carrots will stick with me for a loooong time ;)

I used to be a midnight to 8am person, but I’m now 10:30pm-6am! I blame a new work schedule, and my new love for working out first thing in the morning :)
