I can’t even call this an Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Salad because I’m pretty sure that ended up in here somewhere under the lettuce too!
I picked up some brown rice sushi from Trader Joes because I was shopping hungry and decided that would make a good salad topping. Well, that or I was too lazy to dirty another plate? You decide.
Recently I was thinking about how I always ATTACK the bread bowl at restaurants and parties. I think part of it is because I don’t have good bread at home.
This is seeded flax ciabatta. It’s amazing. Life is too short to eat bad bread.
I also topped my salad with some of Ben’s random egg and turkey stir-fry. Oh, and he put a ton of cashews in it. He is not exactly winning Top Chef next season, but it was good.
Despite my bucket of sushi filled salad, I was hungry an hour later. I wanted a killer snack.
I made up a Killer Protein Cake recipe because I was too lazy to look up my past one.
In a sprayed coffee mug:
1/3 c egg whites
2 Tb. whole wheat pastry flour
packet Stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
dash salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder
Stir and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until firm. Gently slide out of mug.
I flipped it on a plate and spread it with a PB and chocolate chip “frosting”.
Hope you’re having a good day!

Would this work with quinoa flour? (quinoa flour can be pretty dense…).
Also, would it be okay dumped in a cup of yogurt?
I know I eat way too many dairy and eggs…so that might just be more excess all combined…oh, my lack of self-control !

That’s just the cutest little cake!! love it!
I’m making one tonight 🙂
cake in a mug is possibly the best idea i’ve heard in quite some time.
nom. nom. nom.
Good call on the “life’s too short to eat bad bread” mantra. I need to go to Panera and pick some of my favorite potato bread up!
I 100% agree that good bread is a must! I am such a carb girl (specifically bread) I can never turn it down!
That cake looks easy and delicious! I will have to give it a try

I keep trying to make a easy muffin/cake recipe like that, but gluten-free flours have yet to yield the texture result I want.
And I agree that life is too short for bad bread. Which is probably why I haven’t eaten bread in….months. Too many gluten-free breads stink! And the ones that are decent are that good.

*are NOT that good

J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
That salad us fantastic! Next time I buy sushi from the store I’m going to make a salad out of it, too. 🙂
Mug muffins look so neat. Want to try that, too.

I love the line “Life is too short to eat bad bread.” So simple. So very, very true.
I am not much of a baker, but my b.f. has a sweet tooth. Score in a mug for both of us! Thanks!

I will definitely be making that cake! Damn, I guess I need more chocolate chips now 🙂 Somehow my bag disappeared…

I never used to “waste calories” on good bread until I realized that having one or two pieces of delicious bread satiated me 10 times more than fake low cal bread.
That salad looks amazing!
Courtney aka ThatRunnerChick says
That bread looks AMAZING. I have serious bread issues too. Like, an entire loaf of Italian bread in 2 days (I could do it in 1 but pace myself) sort of problem!
That little cake looks yummy!! Protein mug cakes are one of my new obsessions!
Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food says
mmm I am all about the cake for one recipes and that looks wonderfully simple and delicious 🙂
also sushi + hummus = awesome 😉
how is that sushi roll from TJ? I always eye it and never want to buy it for fear of it being crappy and/or old.
It’s okay for store sushi. I’ve never had a bad experience with it and like it. But, I’m definitely not picky about fancy sushi either 🙂
I’m really not good with all the different flours out there- do you think regular flour, or cake flour, would work? Obviously not as good for you, but I have a ton of both.
I think both should work fine. The main idea is that it should be a lighter flour NOT straight up whole wheat 🙂
Thanks! I love individual recipes.
