WIAW: Flavor Flav

Hi my lovelies! What is up? I lovedΒ all your responses to my fashion blogging post–even if you aren’t the ‘fashion’ type, I really appreciated your feedback on what makes a good blog.

Peas and Crayons

Anyways, no, my WIAW title this week has nothing to do with the rapper–it’s just my super-lame way to say that this week’s edition is all about new-t0-me flavors. Like I mentioned in my recent Saturday Seven post, I love trying out new things and this week, I apparently tried out a few new combos and they did not disappoint! So lesssss go!

Breakfast: PBBH sandwich oats (aka peanut butter banana honey sandwich), topped with peanut flour paste, frozen banana slices, drizzle raw honey; unpictured veggie sausage

Ummmmm yeah…let’s just say I have yet another favorite oats combo. I don’t know where I came up with this idea, but it totally reminded me of a peanut butter banana honey sandwich and it. was. delicious. The combination of frozen banana chunks, thick peanut flour paste, creamy voluminous oats and a drizzle of my favorite honey was a magical one. This has just replaced my latest favorite, carrot cake oats!

Starbucks Christmas VIA Blend with AB unsweetened chocolate almond milk.

I have no lunch picture this week (and probably won’t for a while) because my class schedule forces me to eat on-the-go, hence I basically just scarf down baggies of Kashi GoLean, baby carrots, grapes or edamame. Not the most gourmet, but it gets the job done. Oh how I miss leisurely lunches at home…

Tuesday's outfit: pink cropped cardigan (A&F), navy lace-front tank with pinstripe waist tie (A&F Kids), slim boot jeans (American Eagle). The weird face is all me, sadly.

This week and last have been devoted to wearing all my brand-new clothes. I actually love that part of back-to-school–showing off all my new outfits. The tank top in the picture is the new piece, and I love it because it’s one of my few lace pieces, and it’s got an adorable bow around the waist. What’s not to love?

Snack: plain Stonyfield Oikos yogurt mixed with cinnamon and Truvia, topped with half a honeycrisp apple and a little Kashi GoLean.

I’ve been really enjoying plain Greek yogurt lately. Now hear me out. Plain doesn’t mean boring–it just means I buy the plain kind and then flavor it myself with cinnamon, dark cocoa powder, instant coffee–whatever. It’s more economical that way, plus I get more yogurt in a container. Win win! I loved this combo in particular because it had the crunch from the cereal and the sweet-tartness from the apple. Plus the amazing protein and calcium from the yogurt.

Dinner: vegan nachos.

Definitely not nachos in the traditional sense, but good nonetheless. I topped some Late July mild green mojo chips (the best chips, in my opinion) with some Whole Foods refried beans (with chile and lime) and some heated-up frozen grilled peppers from Target. Simple, delicious and a healthy way to get your Mexican fix.

Snack: Annie's pretzel bunnies, heaping teaspoon almond peanut cashew butter.

I’ve said it a million and one times, but again, I love the sweet-salty combo. Nothing better. The other night, I got the super-smart idea to dip pretzels in almond butter. Soooooooo tasty. I love Annie’s pretzel bunnies in particular, because they’re cute!

What’s your favorite way to eat pretzels? What’s the best flavor combo you just discovered?

  1. Your outfit is so adorable, as usual!
    All of these combinations sound so yummy. Especially your oats!

    Pretzels with PB is definitely my favorite combination. And recently I also discovered graham crackers with PB- amazing!

  2. Oh my god,I love your outfit,Ashley! Incredibly cute! β™₯
    Pretzels and nut butter definitely is one of the best combos ever! I like to dip them in nut butter first and then finish it off with a bit of ketchup… Yeees,I knowyou hate it,but tomatoes are the BEST πŸ˜›
    By the way,I am so sad I can’t get those pretzel bunnies in Germany as I am such a sucker for cute food! 😦

    I actually love eating pretzel with nutella. It’s so addicting!! Love the sweet and salty combo too. πŸ™‚

  4. PB banana + honey oats just sounds so delicious!!! I’m definitely trying that one asap. I’m not big on pretzels so they only way I eat them is with cookie butter. Best combo EVER. Love your outfit btw!

    Those oats look to die for. That is a combination I haven’t thought of yet. I’m totally going to have to steal it, so hope you don’t mind! You look so cute in your outfit, my fashionista friend. I especially love the pink bow.

  6. Lately I’ve been loving pretzels crumbled up into my yogurt messes!! I always buy plain yogurt, but sweeten and flavor it myself. Sometimes the added sugar in the flavored ones makes me feel a little nauseous just because they are SO sweet, so making it for myself usually works a lot better!
