I love your sweet potato and raisin snack bowl. I’ll have to give it a try soon.
To answer your questions: Yes, I’ve made nut butters multiple times. I once used the Blue Diamond Blueberry flavor w/ regular roasted almonds. Unique and delicious.
I can’t ever eat cereal alone or I’ll consume handfuls after handfuls LOL. Always add in some nut butter, fruit & syrup :)

That’s exactly why I don’t eat cereal alone either :) Especially brown rice cereal (which is pretty much my absolute favorite) – I’d eat the box if I didn’t add something that would stick!
It’s been awhile, but I have made my own almond butter before and really enjoyed the results. Might need to try that again since nut butter can be so expensive! Simple dinners for me are egg scrambles and toast, and nut butter is good on everything, cereal included ;)

I’ve noticed that nut butters are getting *really* expensive – a (non-organic) jar of almond butter at TJ’s is $6!
So much good food! Your snack of raisins, bananas, sweet potato, and nut butter? I almost died from desire when I saw it on IG. Such a good blend of flavours.
I’ve never made my own but butter before, but I definitely think I’m going to have to give it a go… especially since I wasn’t able to find my favourite jar of Justin’s maple AB the last time I was in the States!

You should try it! I was a little intimidated by it since I don’t really have the right appliance (aka a good food processor), but adding coconut oil helped a lot.
I always want to come and eat with you! Delicious!
When I have cereal it is only at night and I have it with fruit and nuts or nut butter. Cereal is like eating air for me!

Same…the cereal I always eat is brown rice cereal, so if I don’t add more substance to it I don’t feel like I’m ever really satisfied from it!
Yum! Sweet+savory breakfasts are my favourite, perfect combo!

I agree, Tatum. And I just visited your blog for the first time…I love it!!
This is embarrassing but my quick, simple dinner is a breakfast burrito. Sometimes it’s a simple as eggs (or egg beaters), a little bit of cheese and salsa. If I have more things I might add avocado or tomatoes. Things like that. I figure it gets me some protein and doesn’t overload on calories.

avocado + eggs is one of my favorite food combinations! good choice :)
I mix my cereal with Greek Yogurt and top it with fruit so it has more substance. I also don’t like when the cereal gets soggy from milk, so the yogurt takes care of it :)

I’m in that teeny tiny percentage of weirdos, I mean people, who actually like soggy cereal haha
My easiest, quickest go-to meal is a GIANT salad. I usually have my green pepper, onion, carrots prepped so I just throw some on top of my bowl of greens, shake and eat! :)

love it! Salads are my favorite meal during the summertime – I love how easy they are to just (literally) toss together :)
Well, it’s a good thing it’s almost lunchtime because now I’m starving after looking at all these delicious eats! Smoothies make a daily appearance in my routine too. I still love them despite the crazy cold!
I really, really need to try making my own almond butter. It seems easy and looks so good!

I’m not particularly interested in salads this time of year, because it’s so cold out, and yet I’m all about smoothies, all the way through winter. Strange, but I’m not complaining :)
Some serious good eats going on here!! I always top my cereal with fruit! My go-to dinner is usually toast with cottage cheese + avocado. Delish! I’ve never made my own nut butter before but it’s the first thing I’m gonna do when I get a food processor!

I usually eat cereal plain, but I love mixing in things with my oatmeal, like granola, nut butters, and fruit. My “go to” dinner is a quinoa bowl: quinoa, veggies (fresh or frozen), and a wedge of laughing cow.
Nikki @ grab your kicks recently posted…Train, Eat, Repeat
Quinoa is so versatile! It’s awesome with veggies or with fruit. Same with brown rice!
I need to make more of my own nut butter, that looks delicious! We love fittatas here, too. Such a fantastic quick dinner!
Laura @ Mommy Run Fast recently posted…Hungry Mama WIAW + New Stonyfield Flavors
I agree. They’re becoming my go-to meal for when we need groceries – so easy to throw in whatever veggies we have left from the past week!
Such good eats! Your wiaw posts never fail to inspire me. That coconut almond butter looks amazinggg!
Dallas recently posted…a year of Wooden: week 6
And yes – that coconut almond butter didn’t last long :)
Your little snack plate looks good! Never thought to have sweet potatoes fries as a snack with bananas… sounds quite delicious!
Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet recently posted…Recipe: Is There Such Thing As Too Much Coffee?
The two are awesome together, and adding almond butter makes it even better!
