Cheesy Vegan Enchiladas

Tazo Zen Green Tea

Green Cuisine Muffin with Chocolate Chips and Goji Berries

I really do wish everyone had a Green Cuisine nearby! Guess
 you will just have to come visit me to enjoy all the yummies :) 

Also from Green Cuisine, which I seem to be going 
to more often than usual lately, Pinto Enchiladas!!!

Vegan Cheesy Pinto Bean Enchiladas

This was AMAZING! I loaded the bottom with jambalaya
Jamaican rice and added some lettuce and kale. On top is 
a vegan enchilada with veggie meat, soy cheese, and salsa!

And if that wasn't yummy enough, I snacked on a Cool Mint Chocolate Clif Bar. 
It was another flavor that was recommended to me and I was so excited to try it

Less sweet than the Maple Nut with cool bursts of minty freshness.
 But why am I telling you this ? Most of you already love this bar...

After I soak up some sunshine, i'm off to yoga!
hmm I guess i'm starting to warm up to Wednesdays...

Question: Let's have a Clif Bar Debate: Which 
flavor is the best? Sorry, you can only pick one :)

ooohhhh... that's a tough one! I think I might like the standard chocolate chip best... just the right amount of sweetness. :)

MAPLE NUT! Looove that flavor. Oh and carrot cake. Sunshine + yoga sounds wonderful! Go enjoy!!

That enchilada meal looks so good. I'm craving something like that for dinner tonight - cheesy and a bit greasy, like grilled cheese or a quesadilla or egg sandwich.

I can't eat Clif Bars cause I'm allergic to soy, and that's one of their main ingredients. Sad.

wow that enchilada looks so good! I want my food in cute little brown boxes!!!!

I don't mind the cool mint clif bar...still haven't tried maple...my all time fav is still white chocolate!

Monet said... [reply]

Yum! Your eats are making me hungry. I agree with you, there may be nothing better than tea and a muffin!

Chelsea said... [reply]

Green Cuisine just keeps looking better and better! If I am ever out in BC, I am making you take me there haha!

I'm allergic to Clif bars but I really want to try making them with Danielle's recipe from Runs on Green! :D

What a great loking muffin! I love the addition of goji berries :)
And I have never even seen CLIF bars in Australia :(

I haven't had a clif bar in a while but I like oatmeal raisin walnut the most I think...it really has been too long but I usually only grabbed them during cross country season when I was always having to eat a lot more in college and high school. Yes, green cuisine is where I wanna go!

Kristin (Salty Tooth) said... [reply]

Iced Gingerbread Cliff Bars are my favorite! But I think they are seasonal.

Amanda @ . seek . said... [reply]

I think I'm going to have to sit this debate out and watch from the sidelines. I can't eat any Clif bars because they all "may contain traces of peanuts" and I've been blessed with a wonderful peanut allergy :) but the oatmeal raisin walnut one sounds pretty good...

Heather Iacobacci-Miller said... [reply]

I haven't tried that flavor. I'm not a big mint person though. My fave flavors have been the cranberry seasonal one (can't remember the entire long name), the macadamia nut, and carrot cake. I'm apparently a fan huh? Hope you enjoy your yoga!!

I get OBSESSED with cliff bars! Hands down the PEANUT BUTTER flavor is the best

Believe me, I wish I had a Green Cuisine too! You know how jealous I am of you. :P

That enchilada looks soooo flippin good! I love how you realize that meat doesn't have to play a part in every meal. So many people forget that and eat meat 3+ times a day. It's cool to see a non-vegetarian appreciate other food and protein sources besides meat. :)

runnerforever said... [reply]

That is the best vegan mexican meal I have ever seen, yyuuum!
I can only choose one....oooh dear! I guess I will vote for chocolate brownie.

Jessica (Healthy Exposures) said... [reply]

I wish I had a Green Cuisine nearby, too! The past two goodies you've posted from there sound and look fabulous!
And I've never had a Clif Bar!! Shocker, I know - I've got some in the "bar stash," though. They'll be gotten to eventually.
Hope oyu had fun in the sun and at yoga!

Glad you got some SUNSHINE!! :-)

OK so I'm afraid to say that I've never had a Clif bar before, but my colleague at work just bought a box of 24 Chocolate Mint Clif bars because she heard they were going to discontinue them or something, and that's the only flavour her and her son enjoy. So based on my limited knowledge, and vicarious experience, I vote Chocolate Mint for best flavour. :D

I love your new site layout! The touch of blue is very pretty and I think it's great to have your "pages" at the top so that they are more noticeable to newcomers.

I wish I had Green Cuisine near me too...but I know I'll come to Victoria some day when I have time and money. Have you ever been to Rebar? It's a semi vegan restaurant. I have their cookbook. My grandparents got it for me when they were on vacay in Victoria.

As for Clif bars...I've never had one so I can't participate in this. Anything with mint and chocolate sounds pretty delicious to me though..

Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin said... [reply]

I love the new layout! It's really cute and easy to read/browse around. And those enchiladas look awesomeeeeeee.

Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said... [reply]

I have never had a Cliff bar...I know, shocking! Those enchiladas look so good! Enjoy your sunshine!

Jessica said... [reply]

I like the new layout of your blog! I haven't tried too many Clif Bars, but my favorite is the chocolate chip.

Anonymous said... [reply]

Oh my gosh girl only one?? I'm just going to go with what first popped into my head.. the carrot cake! :D

That lunch looks delicious :D I love Jambalaya. I made a vegan version for people at a campaign office once and I knew they were in for a treat--a spicy one mwahaha! It wasn't too spicy though ;)

And I guess I will have to just make my way up north! I always love the look of those muffins and I know that they must be scrumptious!

XOXO hope you got to catch some rays!

Katie said... [reply]

I'm a traditionalist, but I like the chocolate chip!

Unknown said... [reply]

i love cup cakes they are really delicious

Anonymous said... [reply]

I've actually never had a Clif bar before. I know I know I must try one sometimes soon.
I want me some of those Pinto Enchiladas!

Crystal said... [reply]

OF COURSE the Chocolate Brownie flavor is the best!!! I actually just bought that tonight along with the chocolate chip one.

A Toronto girl out West said... [reply]

Yaaayy!! A fellow BC blogger! I don't know why I hadn't found you before either. But rest assured I'll be back (adding you to my Reader).

I love the clean layout of your blog and the fantastic content too! :o)

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT STICK!!! Hands down. I love it. It's my favorite :)

Annie :D said... [reply]

chocolate chip peanut butter and the brownie one! Love cliff bars <3

Averie @ Averie Cooks said... [reply]

NEW SITE, better commenting (with one less click!) YAY it looks GREAT. Subtle but improved...great work!

Blueberry Clif bar ROCKS. Not normally something id pick..but as blueberry products go, it's awesome. Choc is so over done, it's hard to find a good bloob bar. This one delivers!

Unknown said... [reply]

I love that tea. SO soothing. The green tea and ginger from TAZO is another favorite. Favorite Cliff bar...hmmm....I'd say banana nut or Apricot, depending on my mood.

Lauren @ Health on the Run said... [reply]

Such a tough question! My favorite Clif Bar changes from week to week. Right now I guess I'd have to say the Peanut Toffee Buzz. But if you asked me last week, I might've said Maple Nut...or blueberry...

Yasmeen said... [reply]

Yummy muffins,love the vegan enchilada with some of my favorite foods.The dark chocolate cranberry is my pick for the clif bar :D

Simply Life said... [reply]

I have yet to try a clif bar but that flavor looks pretty good to me!

Joanne said... [reply]

I am DYING for that vegan enchilada! Looks like some kind of fantastic. Why don't I have food this good near me?

Can you believe I've never had a Clif bar? Crazy!

hbobier said... [reply]

I've never had a Clif Bar either!! I'm just not a big snack bar kinda gal. I'm sure they're amazing though :)

Katie ♥ said... [reply]

I like the Clif Mojo Bars in the Peanut Butter Pretzel flavor.

I want a freaking Green Cuisine.

Anonymous said... [reply]

Can't comment on the Clif bars... but I guess we like the same kind of muffins! ;) Aesthetically speaking, anyway.

<3 <3

Krista said... [reply]

Judging from the looks of that awesome food, I wish I had a Green Cuisine nearby, too!

Cliff bar = Maple Nut, hands down!!!

Christina said... [reply]

i'm so surprised that bar is bland! what a shame!

Kittie said... [reply]

That muffin looks like pure sin. hehe.

Naomi(Onefitfoodie) said... [reply]

Thank you so very much for the kind comment on my first post. it’s amazing how welcoming and supporitve everybody has already been to me and i’ve only made one post! so thankyou very much indeed.

i've never tried a cliff bar before! SHOCK. but i'd love to....so i think out of the flavours available the ones that appeal most to me would be...the chocolate brownie, maple nut, banana nut bread and crunchy peanut butter..oh oh oh and the ginger bread one!

those enchilladas do look absolutely amzing!!!! x

Danielle (Runs on Green) said... [reply]

I'm going to have to vote for CARROT CAKE Clif bar!

I notice some layout changes- I like!

Enjoy yoga :D

sophia said... [reply]

OMG! Pinto enchiladas look freaking amazing!! You're totally making me crave Mexican food in a Mexican-food-deprived area of the world!

I'm not a fan of bars, so I have not tried any Clif bars yet.

Becca said... [reply]

GINGERBREAD! <3 seasonal, but oh so yummy :]
have fun at yoga!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Love that tea! I have so many flavors of Clif bars that I love: chocolate mint, gingerbread, peanut butter, cranberry, pumpkin spice . . . I could go on!

Jessie (Bites and Pieces) said... [reply]

I don't know what I want more, the muffin or the enchilada. Both look amazing! I think carrot cake is my favorite Clif Bar flavor, but I want to try the maple nut one. :)

Holly said... [reply]

WOW- that Green Cuisine place looks AWESOME for food- saw the meal you had yesterday from there & it looks great as well.
I have actually never had a Clif bar before. (SHOCKER, right?!)

Justine said... [reply]

Confession: I've never had a Clifbar.
Whew, that feels better. :)
Im not really a bar person but I might change my ways as it seems like everyone and their dog loves them. Yupie for yoga! :)

Cardio Pizza said... [reply]

I love the holiday flavors! SOOO GOOD! My favorite is probably gingerbread! Yum!

Kris | iheartwellness.com said... [reply]

Love the new site doll!!

Ok, your muffins are killing me over here. I can't look at them without wanting one....let me rephrase that NEEDING one.

Hmmm I am not such a fan of the cliff bars. But if I was to choose anything chocolate.


Laury@TheFitnessDish said... [reply]

I want a Green Cuisine near me too!!!!

Clif Bar...this was an easy one for me: CHocolate Chip Peanut HANDS DOWN :D


Samantha said... [reply]

the enchilada's look excellent! My favorite Clif Bar is the crunchy peanut butter!

After reading this post and last, I totally want to go to Green Cuisine!!

Clif Bar wise---the mint is actually my favorite lol

emily said... [reply]

My favorites are Cool Mint and White Chocolate. I guess I like the sweet ones!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Hehe, I would totally go visit you! We should totally plan it one day. :D

I don't have a favorite Cliff bar yet because I never seem to get around to eating them. Whenever I have to pick a bar the Oskri ones always win. Always. The Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter one is pretty fabulous though! Especially heated up in the microwave for a few seconds.. yum.

PS. I like the new layout! Having the tabs on the top of the page instead of the bottom is way better. :)

Vegan enchilada!! Looks amazing!! I love the Clif Chocolate Brownie Z-Bars.

eatmovelove said... [reply]

enjoy the sun chicha :)

Erica said... [reply]
