Monday was a good day for eats. I love that. Good food usually means happy me!
I tried out a new recipe – individual egg bake – and it was a success! I’ll be sharing the recipe soon.
And for another recipe success – a Meatless Monday lunch entree – whole wheat spaghetti with chick peas and tomatoes. Nom!
I whipped up some steel cut oats for an afternoon snack.
The cinnamon whipped honey made it a real treat and since I added a little…lightly sweet.
Plus, I now have a few servings for later!
Post-work, I went to Zumba and enjoyed a fun-filled workout.
And then I came home to a taco bar a la hubby – spelt tortillas (props to him for picking that out on his own!), tomatoes, lettuce, and grated cheddar.
Have I mentioned I love spelt? Oh yes, numerous times, right? 😉 Well, spelt just seems more tender than whole wheat while still enjoying all the whole grain wonderfulness. I find most WW tortillas to be dry and brittle but these were smooth and didn’t crack a bit when I rolled them into soft tacos. Whole grain tortilla WIN!
Oh and Bailey says HIIIIIII!!!!!!!!
And check out the new nail polish I painted my nails. It’s The Chic Life blue! Ok, it’s actually called “Royal Mint”, and it’s by Aldo, but TCL blue sounds more fun. 😉
What nail polish color are you currently rocking?
And which of the meals posted in this post would you most like to eat? Nommmmm!

Everything looks delicious! I haven’t tried spelt anything yet because I can’t find it, but those tortillas look great! Lovin’ the nail color. I’m painting mine gold tonight!
You so should! I adore spelt! 🙂
ummm… all of it? Lol! 😉
no NP for me, but my favorite is ballet slippers from OPI. Or was it Essie? I don’t remember anymore.
I’ve never heard of spelt tortillas. Where do you get them?
We got ours at Earthfare, but most health food stores should have them – Whole Foods or your local health food store. They’re fab! 🙂
The nail polish I am currently rocking is very similar to that one! It’s Mint Candy Apple by Essie. I love it for spring!
Ooh, I think Mara used that color the other day. It’s super pretty! 🙂
Those individual egg bakes look amazing!!! Can’t wait for the recipe 🙂
Right now I’m rocking Dim Sum Plum by OPI. I love OPI nail polish and my cousin gets me 40% off from her work discount! I’m obsessed with nail polish and have a huge Victoria Secret bagful.
Here’s the recipe! https://thechiclife.com/2011/04/individual-spinach-cheddar-egg-bake-recipe.html
That Dim Sum OPI color sounds fun…probably b/c I am slightly infatuated with dim sum…the food. hehe
That individual egg bake looks delicious! Can’t wait for the recipe :).
Here it is! https://thechiclife.com/2011/04/individual-spinach-cheddar-egg-bake-recipe.html 🙂
the individual egg bake, nomnomnom!
All your eats look so fresh and delicious!
I just bought a new shirt the exact color of your nail polish! LOVE this color!
I very rarely paint my finger nails – mostly just my toes!
Love the idea of chickpeas and tomatoes on pasta – sounds delicious!
I love my Annie’s spelt pretzels, but I hadn’t seen the spelt tortillas! They sound like the perfect substitute – I rarely eat tacos or fajitas unless I have corn tortillas! Great find!
I LOVE that nail polish color! My go-to color is always pink, but I also love grays right now!
How do you like zumba? I haven’t tried it yet…but I’m curious!
I adore Zumba! It’s exercise in disguise. 😉 Seriously…I feel like I’m having fun instead of feeling like I’m working out! You should try it sometime!
I’m wearing a similar polish myself right now except for Essie. It reminds me of an Easter egg. =)
Ooh, like Robin’s egg blue? 🙂
