Foodies to share

I have a few recent pics & meals to share today. Including the Cookies & Cream Cupcakes that I made over the 4th of July Weekend!

The first is a yummy Oatmeal recipe I had for breaky.
Oats, AB & berries
1/4c oats
1/8c oat bran
1T flaxseed meal
About 1/2c water
Topped with:
Almond butter milk (equal parts almond butter & almond milk)
Splash almond milk
Blackberries
Strawberries
Homemade granola
I loved the morning sunlight on the pics. I am usually taking my shots at night... so I really appreciated the natural lighting.

The bird & I also made it to the Whole Foods salad & sandwich bar this weekend. Such a treat!
I made a delicious salad with lots o' fixins! Tofu, edamame, cherry tomatoes, garbanzo beans, & feta cheese.
I also had a little spoonful of a delicious orzo prepared salad! Scrumptious!

The bird opted for a sandi...
Also a fine choice. Its pretty hard to go wrong at Whole Foods. If you haven't visited this place, get there asap... its amazing!

And lastly, I wanted to share my cupcake recipe from 4th of July. The recipe is compliments of Annie's Eats. She has a fabulous website filled to the brim with great recipes to try. This really is one of thousands! The cupcake recipe I made this weekend was Cookies & Cream Cupcakes.
I have made this recipe several times, so I already knew it was amazing! Its great for guests because it has such a pretty presentation. And perfect for kiddos... what kid doesn't jump at the sight of Oreos on the top of a cupcake!
There are Oreos mixed in the batter & a surprise Oreo at the bottom of the cupcake.
Sinfully delicious... perfect for special occasions. Or breakfast tomorrow morning! ;)

Happy Eats & Happy Thursday!
