Savory Oatmeal with Spinach and Mushrooms

Savory Oatmeal with Spinach and Mushrooms | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made this cozy Savory Oatmeal with Spinach and Mushrooms for Earth Fare!]

How do you guys feel about vegetables for breakfast? 

Up until about 6 years ago, I ate something sweet for breakfast about 95% of the time.

In the younger years, it was pop-tarts, cereal, eggo waffles, or muffins. When I got a little more health conscious, it was oatmeal with brown sugar, yogurt with fruit and honey, or (a more grown up, but still sweet) cereal. 

When I started having health issues, I made a connection between the sweet foods I was eating and the symptoms I was dealing with.

(Basically all of my symptoms got worse when I ate sugar or even high sugar fruits.)   Continue reading

A Bibimbap Bowl Party

A Bibimbap Bowl Party | Reclaiming Yesterday

             

[I threw this fun Build -Your-Own Bibimbap Bowl Party for Earth Fare!] 

I’m back at it with the Bibimbap!

Do you guys remember those bibimbap bowls I made with duck eggs a while back? Making those bowls really got me addicted to bibimbap, and they’ve quickly become a favorite at our house. 

Bibimbap is a Korean comfort food dish that translates to “mixed rice.”

To make a bibimbap bowl you start with a base of rice, and then top it with meat and/or an egg, plus all the colorful veggies you can pile on. 

There’s no strict set of rules and the toppings are endless, which is why these bowls are great for a party!

Visiting Monemvasia, Greece

Visiting Monemvasia, Greece | Reclaiming Yesterday

Back last September, K and I made a trip to Greece.

We both think Greece is the most beautiful place in the world (and we’re both a little biased).

Backstory: K was born and raised in Athens, Greece. It’s where he intended to spend the rest of his life. That is, until he ran into me during my Study Abroad program in 2010…and both of our paths were completely rewritten.

K’s seen a lot of Greece, of course. And I’ve seen a pretty good little hunk of it.

But both of us were blown away by our visit to Monemvasia.
