What Kat Ate #5!

Hey my Beautiful Blueberry Honeysuckles! πŸ˜€

Thanks for all of your comments on my Homemade Sun Butter. I’m so glad that so many of you are addicted to nut/seed butter as much as I am. He-he (*evil laugh*). jk!

Here’s another What Kat Ate!Β I love how Jen is making this a veggie-filled month of February!


Protein oats (with soy nuts) with cocoa powder and cinnamon (so, pretty much my homemade protein powder, but not in crushed form) and a low sodium V8 on the side.


Morningstar Grillers Chick’n with a flatout with my homemadeΒ sun butter and apricot preserves alongside a green smoothie (forgot the precise ingredients, but it had a non-dairy milk of some type with lots of kale, either a banana or an apple, and a few other ingredients).


Yep. Another Peanut Butter Banana (but this time with a sliced Kiwi).


A Veggie Delight from Subway (I had the 9 grain wheat with tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, lettuce, olives, red onion, and bell peppers) with dark chocolate chips and almonds (unpictured) on the side for dessert. πŸ˜€


Both Sarah and Julianna (along with many other lovely individuals) tagged me with the 11 Questions.

Here are the survey “rules”:

#1: You must post these rules.
#2: Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
#3: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.

  1. Are you a shoe or purse person (you have to pick one)? SHOE! I can get tired of purses easily, as while I’m shopping they get in the way. I still love purses and they are really cute, but I would probably use a cute pair of shoes more than a purse.
  2. What is your favorite book?
  3. What’s your favorite quote from a movie? Hmmm, I love Star Wars “Luke, I am your father;” How To Train A Dragon “Thank you for nothing/you useless reptile;” Scar’s first scene in The Lion King: “Life’s not fair, is it!? …”; “What is he doing? He’s expressing himself…” from The Seeker; the “Mrs. Darcy” scene at the end of the Keira Knightley Pride and Prejudice; and, ooopps! He-he, I guess that’s more than one. πŸ˜‰
  4. Do you think you can dance? Ha-ha, yep! πŸ˜‰ I like to do ballroom. Not that I’ve taken lessons, but I always love learning whatever I can from my friends who take ballroom. I also really like line-dancing.
  5. Have you ever had a penpal? Yes I have! Well, she was more of an email-penpal, but I still keep up with her. πŸ™‚
  6. Would you rather text or call? I usually just text since I have unlimited text, but I think calling is better when I can. If I had to put them in categories of good/better/or best, I’d say: text is good, calling is better, and in person is best.
  7. Which place in the world would you like to visit the most, and why? Egypt: because Cleopatra was such a strong woman (first Ptolemy ruler to actually learn the Egyptian language – and I do NOT believe she killed herself; Octavius must have had her killed. Why on earth would she leave her children unguarded??!!) and I have always loved learning about the ancient Egyptian culture.
  8. What were your career ambitions at age 9? To be a ballerina. Ha-ha, that did not happen.
  9. Who’s your favorite Spice Girl? I don’t even know WHO the Spice Girls are. Nutmeg is one of my favorite spices though. πŸ™‚
  10. Dream kitchen or dream master suite? Dream Kitchen of course! πŸ˜‰
  11. What’s your favorite salad ingredient? I really like chickpeas on my salads.

Questions to Answer:

  1. What is your biggest goal/dream right now?
  2. What is your favorite color?
  3. What’s your favorite kind of music?
  4. Do you have any fears or phobias?
  5. Do you like getting manicures?
  6. Favorite meal of the day?
  7. Would you ever wear bright pink toe-socks? πŸ˜‰
  8. What’s your favorite color?
  9. What has been the best moment in your life so far?
  10. Chocolate or Peanut Butter?
  11. What time do you go to bed?

What are some of your favorite ways to add extra fruits and vegetables to your daily eats? I love to blend up greens in a smoothie, pill them up on sandwiches, sneak them into muffins,

Favorite food eaten today? Fave food pictured above? I’ve been loving my homemade sun butter – the jar is almost OIAJ worthy. Though, I also finished a jar of peanut butter yesterday and didn’t make it an OIAJ, so I guess it depends on my mood.

  1. One of my favorite eats is any nut butter on a banana, such a delicious feeling snack! Your breakfast oats look really delicious as well!
    I too would go with shoes over a purse any day! I think they can make an outfit more than a purse can!

  2. Your V8 reminds me of my Dad. He’s OBSESSED with that stuff! I love the pb and banana and kiwi for a snack! Looks like a delicious day of eats!

  3. Aww! Thanks for the tag, girl. (:
    To sneak in more fruits/veggies I love blending up green smoothies and, lately, I’ve been drinking a lot of green juices. Using my juicer that I got for Christmas is so much fun!
    Other than that, I try to eat lots of raw fruits and veggies. ‘Cause they’re delicious and nutritious!

    1. Yeah, I can’t stand it in the morning very often either — once in a while I’ll drink it (I practically have to chug it — I’m not the biggest fan of tomatoes unless their on a pizza or as spaghetti sauce or something; even tomatoes on salads and sandwiches are pushing the limit for me. I just prefer tomatoes cooked rather than raw!

      1. i actually like to peel the skin off and then eat it along with the sliced kiwi….so its like chewy fuzzy fruit chips! haha that sounds gross and weird but its good i swear!

        1. Ok, I actually tried eating a kiwi with the peel ……. and I liked it! You can’t even tell that the skin is on it flavor-wise (it’s like when I eat the greens of the strawberries!). Thanks for the suggestion!
