Seafood Kick

2 Mar

Hi guys!

I hope everyone is enjoying the week! It has been one of transition for me, as I started my final trimester of school…my last trimester of high school EVER. So. Pumped. Between my new classes, applying for scholarships, and work, my spare time has been sparse and cut into my blogging time. Not cool, homework, not cool. In fact, my to-do list is still a mile and a half long, but I couldn’t neglect the good ole blogaroo any longer. So today I’ve got some photo unloadage of what I’ve been loving…which apparently has been a lot of seafood. I didn’t really realize it until I looked through my pictures!


I DID IT. I was bound and determined to fill up Mr. Giant Mug. I knew my overnight oats method would do the trick! 1/2 cup oatbran, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1 cup water, 1/2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/2 scoop protein powder. Cacao nibs for topping, obvi.


peanut flour & j oats


been gettin’ my socca on, along with everyone else in the blogosphere! FYI: try goat cheese with socca…it will make you extremely happy. I made the above socca with garam masala for an idian flavor and it was redic!


Next, I decided to try a version made with: garlic powder, oregano, basil, parsley, and nutritional yeast. Winner! It reminded me of cheezy cornbread.



Tilapia mozzarella lasagna, based of a recipe I found in the new Clean Eating mag.


sweet tater with nut butter and nooch, bell pepper with the humus that I’m addicted to


Last night’s dinner of roasted asparagus, balsamic salmon, and socca.


broccoli slaw pasta with shrimp and homemade gauc (1/2 avocado, salt, pepper, lemon juice, fresh garlic, olive oil)


NUTTTTTZO! These definitely won’t be lasting long! If you like texture in your nut butters, you’ve got to try this one. The chia seeds add a lovely texture and crunch in every bite.



Banana nut cake…completely healthified, protein filled, and foodgasmic. Recipe to come tomorrow!

And that’s that! I’m going to try and work on a scholarship essay for a bit and then head to work. Hope you have a great day!

What’s the best thing you have eaten so far this week?

      I just cooked up some broccoli slaw in a pan with cooking spray, bragg’s liquid aminos (or soy sauce) and some seasonings. It’s a good base to load up with toppings!

    What socca recipe did you use? I have a bag of garbanzo bean flour that I need to use! And, I can’t wait for that banana bread recipe – I love protein breads!

    • Sweet Cheeks March 3, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

      I made my socca with 1/2 cup flour, a little more than 1/2 cup water and then whatever seasonings-sweet or savory- I want to use. I bake it at 350 and it usually takes about 20 minutes or so.

      I got it online at Open Sky but if you google it, there are a few different places you can get it. I have never seen it in stores though.
