Savory goat cheese veggie dip

Hi! How’s the afternoon going?

It’s been a great day with my little sidekick. :)

Me and livi27

This morning involved playing birthday fairy, which involved a solo trip to the mall. It was luxurious to smell candles with both hands,

and I loved picking up a couple of birthday surprises for the little lady. (PS all she asked for for her birthday was a Tiana princess dress, and turns out they’re very hard to find!) 

Breakfast: eggy oats

Eggy oats

(1/3 cup oats cooked in water with an egg + 4 egg whites cracked in; added frozen berries, cinnamon, almond milk, Stevia and a blob of almond butter)

and I introduced Liv to this glorious combo for a snack: popcorn with cinnamon and chocolate chips.

This afternoon with lunch, we also shared a veggie platter with the current favorite dipping sauce: this savory creamy goat cheese dip.

I had a block of goat cheese in the fridge, and instead of crumbling it for eggs and salads per the usual, I decided to switch it up a bit.

It went into the food processor along with some almond milk, spices, and a squeeze of lemon juice, and it.it.AMAZING. It also makes a delicious creamy salad dressing!

What’s your fave salad dressing or veggie dip? I love Goddess dressing -please let me know if you have a recipe to make it at home!- and have been making this Maple-Dijon vinaigrette quite a bit lately.

Time to get ready for training + Zumba!

The holiday frenzy is officially here, and I kind of love it. There’s something invigorating about a schedule full of events (like parties and Liv’s holiday show), sneakily wrapping gifts during naptime, and baking. Oh, the baking. I look forward to it every year. I think I’ll always remember our first year in Valdosta, when […]
