The Foodie Blogroll

I'm still alive.

As I mentioned in my last post I have been working insane hours. This has really taken a toll on my blogging life, I mean really it's come to the point where I don't even have one. I haven't even really been baking/cooking lately. When making my lunch I try to pack healthy/easy/filling snacks so that I don't rely on the food in the kitchen. One thing that I've really enjoyed at work, is putting all the ingredients together and making banana scrambles! It's perfect because all you need is a microwave. Smoothies are so simple to throw together, I pack them in my juice container?... I don't know what else to call it. I haven't been making oatmeal as often as I'd like (even though most of these recipes are oatmeal) some are from the weekend, or when I have extra time in the morning (usually days where I skip my work out in the morning and wait to do it on my lunch break... like today). I don't have much time to put together a post, but I wanted to so I figured I'd do so in the quickest way I could. Post ingredients + directions all together, don't speak about the recipes. They are all insanely delicious. My favourites were definitely the ones with the tropical fruits (as you'll see) since I'm in love but they were all AMAZIIIIIIIIIING... and yes, these are all one's I whipped together according to my flavours buds, hope you enjoy!
