Muffins and May Long Weekends

We get Monday off here today for the Victoria Day long weekend! Last year I took 
photos of the parade, but this year I decided to sleep in and enjoy a muffin and coffee :)

Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffin from Cascadia Bakery

Cascadia's version is a more dessert-like pastry than my recipe version which is 
hearty and savory, but sometimes it's nice to go for the bakery sweet "real thing" eh?

Later I whipped up a quick snack...

This is the first time in 22 years I have ever mixed cottage cheese with berries!

I always heard people say how delicious and filling it is, but 
always imagined the combination would taste strange... it's
 really yummy though, especially with strawberries and cinnamon

Lunch was a salmon salad wrap...

Which I lightly grilled on the George Foreman

mixed with tomato, spinach, cucumber, green onions and
 Vegenaisetucked into a brown rice tortilla from Food for Life

Question: Lately, what have been 
your favorite go-to snack options?

my go-to snacks have been hard-boiled eggs and fresh oranges lately!!! And, of course, peanut butter on bananas with unsweetened chocolate-YUUUUMMMMY!

My favourite snack is a soya latte ;D <3 Yum!!! Or if I'm being more normal, I'd have to say fruits or crackers!
And I thought I was weird for mixing my VEGANaise with salmon or tuna but I guess I'm not the only one :P

Favorite snacks -- small bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, fresh cut veggies, berries of any kind, sliced tomatoes. Ok any fruit or veggie since produce seems to be tasting so delicious right now.

Wow. Now THAT is a muffin! My favorite snack is carrots with hummus. Yum!

Fresh fruit has been my go to snack lately! I've missed watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches and berries so I've been eating those like a mad woman! I'm also really fond of dates with some peanut butter, too :)

Your eats have made me SO hungry lately! They always look delicious!

I'm addicted to snacking on nuts and peanut butter - too much so, probably!

I'm a huge fan of muffin tops, that muffin (top) looks particularly amazing.

Dang those muffins! They always make me want a muffin! I can't believe that's already been a year ago Kelsey! I hope you're enjoying your day off. Lately, I've been on a fruit salad kick. I wish I had that muffin though!

Oh my gosh!! Have you tried cottage cheese and pineapple?!?! That's my fav. :) If you haven't you need to do is ASAP!

Lately my favourite snack is Angela's 5 ingredient date squares from Oh She Glows! But I finished them a few days ago... I want to make another batch!

My mom mixed cottage cheese and pineapple, but I can't bring myself to like it - I really enjoy cottage cheese with savory dishes! Lately I have been snacking on Medjool dates, they're so sweet and caramely, I feel like I'm eating candy!

I love mixing cottage cheese with fruits and yogurt! It's amazing :D

I love to mix my cottage cheese with fruit! And your wraps always look so good. My go to snack is probably peanut butter toast and lately Greek yogurt.

Jessica said... [reply]

Lately all my snacks have been MUSCLE MILK puddings, they're fast and super tasty!

I am glad you tried strawberries and cottage cheese, it's such an interesting mix of flavors!

Oh man, that salmon wrap looks super tasty! Hmm...I'd have to say my go-to snack has been Greek yogurt lately. I keep loads of them in the fridge at work. Its a recent discovery for me so I've been making up for lost time :)

Thanks for sharing and for swinging by Deep Dish!

BEST way to eat a muffin, when it is overflowing over the top of the paper! Yuuuum!

I have been carrying Lara Bars with me, and they usually do the trick.
