Cereal of Champions and Taco Salads

Breakfast of Champions: Nature's Path Multigrain 
Cereal topped with sliced Strawberries and Bananas

Do you like my mid-pouring Almond Milk action shot? 
Or do you like the droplets I spilled all over the cupboard?

If you're experiencing some Deja Vu over this cute Red 
Mug-Bowl, then you probably remember it from this post :)

Okay, now it's time to break into these new Exotic Rice Toast Crackers 

Because the Purple Rice & Black Sesame look similar to Purple Corn Tortilla Chips...

 ...I decided to make a Taco Salad!

Zoe inspired me to make this after I saw the yummy Nacho Salad she posted

My Taco Salad consisted of shredded lettuce, spinach, grilled chicken, grilled
mushrooms, tomatoes, red onion, salsa, cottage cheese, lemon juice, and pepper

Yea, not quite a traditional version, but it was mighty tasty ;)

And 2 thumbs up for the Rice Toast, they are definitely a
 mix between a rice cracker and chip... not too salty either

Your milk pouring shots are fantastic! Great job. What kind of lens do you use?

That taco salad looks so good and I just ate, so I'm stuffed, but I'd totally nom it anyway.

Those crackers look so good! Where did you find them? Planet Organic?

Meri said... [reply]

You make such beautiful food presentations- the food usually just goes right in my mouth as I'm cooking haha, so I don't tend to make them that pretty. I do like making shapes with my m& ms however.
Now I"m hungry. Which I guess is good, as it's already 8:30...
well, cheers!

Chelsea said... [reply]

LOL! I always end up spilling when I try to take shots of me pouring something too! ;)

What a beautifully presented salad - that must have taken some time to put together. I love eating food that looks pretty like that!

Aimee said... [reply]

i want those rice crackers!!! and you have now inspired me to go out and buy a giant mug to use as a bowl :D

Molly said... [reply]

Kelsey that looks amazing. My mom would like this far more than I would love it and I would love it. Great idea to use crackers instead of chips or a shell. Healthy alternative with great color.

zoe (and the beatles) said... [reply]

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said... [reply]
