Plethora of Pictures: Plates Edition Part 1

The other day I left off feeling an irritated stress over an overabundance of unused food pictures. I unloaded a few in the first edition of the (very short) Plethora of Pictures series (I don’t predict this one to be a box office hit) featuring a random mess of products but have since neglected to empty out the rest. So I’m doing that now…

The PLATES – a random selection from the last 10+ days. In multiple parts. Here is the first smattering.


And GO!



Vegetable-based Platters

Salad with taco topper


Spinach with honey mustard and roasted squash


Greek salad with leftover roasted squash and cottage cheese


Raw veggie and turkey dipping platter


Another raw veggie dipping platter with corn and bean salad


Spinach and cucumber salad with tuna topper (mixed with light sour cream, dijon, wasabi) and a side of pasta salad


More of the spinach and tuna combo


Vermicelli noodles topped with chicken and vegetables stir fried in a teriyaki sauce (made from a powdered mix I randomly found in the cupboard. Would not buy again)


Veggie burger on multigrain with spinach, dijon, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese



Sweeter Side

Fruit plate with strained yogurt


Banana topped with yogurt mixed with peanut butter and a side of dates


A blend of frozen banana, cocoa powder, coconut flour, almonds, sweetener


The morning green smoothie with a side of green tea and Peanut Butter Puffins


Shreddies and apple chunks topped with a splash of almond milk, cinnamon and strained yogurt


Apple chunks heated and topped with a mix of light sour cream, cinnamon and vanilla stevia drops


Cocoa smoothie frozen and stirred every 5-10 minutes about 3x until reaching icy ice cream-like consistency for maximal snacking satisfaction


Sweet tortilla chips – tortillas dipped in cinnamon butter mixed with almond milk, baked at 400 for 8-10 minutes, flipping half way



The rest coming soon…

Happy Monday!

  1. Because I obviously suffer from some form of dyslexia, when I read the caption “Raw veggie and turkey dipping platter” I thought I read “raw turkey and veggie dipping platter”, and was like, wtf?! Did I read that right. Yeah, turns out you don’t eat raw turkey, and I’m just slow.

  2. You eat the most veggie filled, nutritious meals everrr! Im alway so impressed by your healthy bites. I would feel awesome if that was my daily intake of veg..except perhaps a bit gassy… bahaha TMI?

    • Hahaha the veg can definitely be lethal. All of those “nutritious” bites are balanced out with plenty of not quite as healthy fare though. Binging on batches of cookies and cereal isn’t quite as photogenic ;)

  4. I keep seeing mentioned of a “Coffee cocoa spinach strawberry smoothie”. How on Earth did you come up with combination? It doesn’t intuitively sound like something that tastes good.


    • Haha it’s not nearly as strange as it sounds. It’s actually pretty delicious. I always have chilled coffee in the fridge so I just use that and almond milk as the liquid and then add protein powder, cocoa powder, spinach, sweetener, ice and frozen strawberries. I kind of love it.

  5. I enjoy you because of your entire effort on this site. My mother really likes engaging in investigations and it’s easy to see why. All of us know all relating to the compelling mode you make important tactics through the website and therefore encourage response from others on the concern plus our own daughter has always been becoming educated a great deal. Have fun with the remaining portion of the year. You are always doing a good job.
