My Weekend in Food and Photos

I probably should have posted this yesterday but it FLEW by for me. Monday’s always do which is why I don’t mind them. Tuesday on the other hand, the worst. It’s by far my least favorite day of the week. To help get through the Tuesday slump, I am going to relive my weekend in food and photos.

Join me as I through it WAY back to a few days ago.

Friday was all about pho for lunch and Chinese for dinner.  I am in training for eating during our honeymoon in southeast Asia so it is important to get my fair share of noodles in over the next 8 months.

Saturday I woke up to a deer in our yard! Sorry for the horrible picture.


Then I drove to Connecticut to see these beautiful babes.


I mean these beautiful babes…we’re all grown up now.

I am slightly afraid of pregnant bellies.


On the way home I made a pit stop at Whole Foods for some essentials.

(Ezekiel bread, Suja juices, frozen fruit, Epic Bars, Hail Merry macaroons, almond butter)

Sunday I made French toast with the afore mentioned Ezekiel bread.

And I made an apple quinoa bake!

Thanks for letting me bore you with my extremely mundane weekend.

Happy Tuesday!

Rice Cake Protein Balls

Yesterday, I mentioned my super long commute and how I deal with it and today I am going to bring you a little something else that has helps me cope…a delicious snack! I have made these Rice Cake Protein Balls twice now and I absolutely love them.

I used Tina’s recipe as a base but made a few tweaks to make them my own.

Rice Cake Protein Balls

Warning – these are REALLY good and super easy to eat all in one sitting. I made sure to portion them out as soon as they were done so I wouldn’t down all the balls at once.

rcpb ingredients


(Looks kind of gross…but it’s so so good!)


  • 2 rice cakes
  • 2 Tbsp Nikki’s Coconut Butter (I used the macadamia nut cookie flavor)
  • 2 Tbsp Nutella
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp Perfect Fit Protein Powder (I used the Cinnamon Roll flavor)
  • 1 pinch of sea salt


  1. Crush the rice cakes in a bowl.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in with the crushed rice cakes until all incorporated.
  3. Roll into 8 balls.
  4. Refrigerate for an hour or overnight if you have the time and will power.

Next time I make these delicious little orbs I am going to experiment with nuts and dried fruit and maybe change up the protein powder for a more chocolate-y ball!

Any other ideas on what I could add to these treats to make them even more delicious?
