Marvelous in my Monday!

by danielle on December 3, 2012

Happy Monday! Celebrating Marvelous in My Monday thanks to Katie! As usual I’ve got link love for you, along with my groceries and some of my meal prep to get ready for the week.

Groceries: 

DSCN1625

Mini pears, apples, grass fed burgers, baby carrots, chicken apple sausage, perfect foods bar, kabocha squash, spaghetti squash, bell pepper, baby spinach, and pumpkin seeds. I didn’t need a lot this week, just stuck to the basics! Little note on those pumpkin seeds. I was so excited to find them at Whole Foods but when I went to eat them today I realized they are coated with wheat flour. Major fail! Good thing I checked the label.

The Prep:DSCN1630

The Recipes: Last week’s recipes in case you missed them!

Isn’t it the worst when you buy/eat something and then later realize that it contains an ingredient (which you would never suspect to be in the food) that you don’t eat? This has been happening to me a lot lately with gelatin. It is popping up everywhere in yogurts, dips, shredded cheese, etc. Not happy about it!

danielle December 3, 2012 at 3:13 pm

I know it’s so scary how many unnescesary things are added to the simplest of foods!

I want to try that microwave English muffin too! Looks so awesome! I’m just excited about Christmas festivities going on all month!

Me too! Love the holiday season!

This weekend was marvelous because it was all about Christmas over here. Decorations, movies, music… This is my favorite time of year and I tend to go a little crazy with it :lol: But you can never have too much Christmas Spirit in my opinion!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Reply

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I agree you can never have too much!

Kristen@Change of Pace December 3, 2012 at 4:02 pm

I need to look for those burgers! So easy to make!

Reply

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:25 pm

They are awesome! I find mine at Whole Foods!

I am amazed at your food prep! You’re awesome, Danielle :)

Beth December 3, 2012 at 11:47 pm

I agree! Totally impressed with your food pref. I can see how it would be much simpler having my bags of carrots divided rather than in the sealed bag. Sometimes things get lost in the fridge but your way is creative and my new now! lol Thanks for cool tip :)

I’ve tried a grass fed beef burger only one time and OMGoodness..the best ever, never will be able to eat regular beef again! The grass fed has so much flavor to it.

Have a great week!
Beth :o )

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Thanks Beth! I’m all about the convenience. If I can grab it and go I’ll eat it otherwise that bag of carrots or veggies will just sit in my fridge all week ;)

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Thanks Paige!

Katie December 3, 2012 at 8:17 pm

I want to buy those grass fed burgers, but aren’t they pricey? I was thinking I could just buy meat at trader joe’s and make my own!

Happy Monday love! Hope you have a great week! <3

Hi Sophie!!!!!!!

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

They are a bit more expensive but it’s totally worth it! Trader Joe’s is definitely your best bet for something a little less pricey! Happy Monday!

danielle December 4, 2012 at 3:17 pm

They are expensive but totally worth it! Trader Joe’s is definitely a bit less pricey and still great quality! Happy Monday!

Your chocolate coffee mousse looks SO good and so simple, too! I’ll have to try it! We don’t have too many plans this week, just finishing up Christmas gifts and getting ready for my CrossFit competition on Saturday!

CrossFit competition?? That’s so exciting. Can’t wait to hear about it!
