Well, week 2 of the 100 Days of Real Food Challenge has come to a close.  Here are some of the highlights 🙂  Hope you Enjoy!!


Bulgur (recipe from Emily @ DailyGarnish.com).  I also had a salad on the side with a little of the same lemon vinaigrette that was in the bulgur. The bulgur was amazing!  I can’t wait to have it again!  Definitely staying on my list of go to recipes.  Also, look what I got…


Ball canning jars!!  I bought these to make my pantry more organized…  Thank Emily for the great idea!!


I also made some…


Homemade granola… This stuff is addicting! (Adapted from 100 Days of Real Food). I did everything the same I just added some walnuts and I used whole flaxseed.  I also skipped the seeds because I just didn’t have any at the time.  One morning I added a banana to the granola and added some milk..  Yummy!


For lunch one day I had a salad…


With homemade hummus! So good (for the recipe click here)!!  For dinner that night I made…


Black bean tacos on homemade tortillas (recipe here).  My tortillas where a little darker because I used 100% whole wheat flour.  Next time I am going to use 100% white whole wheat flour.  To the tacos I added a little rice, black beans, onion, yellow pepper, cheese and greek yogurt! Yum!  For dessert that night I made…


Banana Bread (recipe here)!!! Really good just out of the over but…


So much better the next day when it sat in the refrigerator all night!!  Another night for dessert I made…


A fruit smoothie… In the mix was orange juice, banana, and frozen raspberries and blueberries. I love fruit smoothies!!

For lunch one day I had…


A waffle peanut butter and honey sandwich with a days worth of fruit! I was starving that day!!  I loved that I could freeze the homemade waffles and all I had to do was pop them into the toaster!


For a snack one day I had the left over hummus and made some pita chips from some Whole Wheat pitas I had in the pantry and I also had some yellow pepper too…

Saturday morning I was trying to find something fast for breakfast…


Oatmeal with milk and the toppings were unsweetened coconut, almonds, and a little drizzle of honey!!  Later the day I made…


homemade bread and some (recipe here)…  For my first attempt at making bread it turned out pretty good although it didn’t rise much in the oven but it was still really good!! and while that was cooking I also made…

Peanut butter and honey blondies (recipe here)…  They are pretty darn good.  I also added some fresh whipped cream with a little maple syrup added to it.  It was so good that I didn’t even get a chance to take a picture.

Well, that was my week all wrapped up into one post!! I am trying to get all of this homework done and it is just crazy!  And the craziness is going to continue because I have decided to take a spring class and two summer classes!  I am just ready to get out of school and start my career.  Well, I am off to get some more homework done! Later 🙂
