Have you figured out the acronym?
Fact: When Bobby and I were in high school and first started dating, we used to post acronyms on our AIM profiles (do you remember those?!) and challenged each other to figure out what they meant.
I’ll spare you those sappy creative acronyms and say: TGFCC!!
In other words…Thank Goodness For Coffee Cocoa!
Not just any Coffee Cocoa, however: this is Pumpkin Spice. Just in time for fall
So lately for breakfast I’ve been following this new regimen called The Lobster Diet. It’s probably the best diet I’ve ever gone on because it involves eating nut butter + jam toast for breakfast
I am addicted to this combination. My current schedule has me waking up very early every morning, and many times I am not hungry enough for a big bowl of oats, etc. before I need to leave. This tides me over perfectly and if I get hungrier later, I munch on some fruit.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a little texture in the soup. It featured pumpkin, maple syrup a touch of cream and a lot of spice. It was a very hearty combination of savory and sweet.
The third thing I’m thankful for in food this week is a quick and easy dinner that’s healthy without compromising on flavor. A few days ago, I was able to achieve that with Vegetablummus Stir-fry
I sauteed an entire frozen bag of stir-fry veggies in a pan on the stove with some olive oil. When the veggies started to brown, I added in 2 tbsp. ginger-sesame sauce and a few “swirls” of soy sauce. Once they were finished, I poured everything onto a plate and topped it with 2 tbsp. Sabra hummus.
After I took this picture, I stirred the hummus in to give the entire dish a creamy like texture – almost like a veggie pasta! The combination of Asian flavors with hummus was GREAT!! I will add this to my recipes page soon – it’s the new Humbecue 😉 Gotta love name combining.
Dinner wouldn’t be complete without a honeycrisp apple. Notice the addition of pumpkin mellowcremes. I think Miss Heather can attest to the fact that those are absolutely necessary.
Though we may be experiencing weeks upon weeks of spring-like showers here in Chicago, there is no question in my mind that fall foods are here.

Any big plans for the weekend?
We are planning to keep things low-key. It has been a busy few weeks and I’m excited to relax!
Note: I am compiling your questions from Dr. Funk’s interview and will send as many as I can to her. Hopefully she’ll be able to answer a few of the questions you still had!
