Sloppy…Split Peas?

This afternoon I got home from work and did the workout I didn’t do this morning. I decided to try the newest EA Active Wii game and will be doing the 6 week challenge.  Have you ever done the EA Active challenge?

I was craving sloppy joes tonight and thought I had lentils to make them with but I couldn’t find them (we still are unpacking) so I decided to try something new Spicy Sloppy Split Peas! I put the sloppy split peas on a bun with dijon mustard and baby spinach and had sauteed purple cabbage and baked sweet potatoes on the side.

Tonight I plan on getting some school work done as well as attempting to do a little more unpacking so we can get all settled in.  However first I will enjoy one of my new yummy raw cookies.

Raw Almond Super Food Cookies

Makes 12-15 cookies


  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 2T agave nectar
  • 1/2t cinnamon
  • 2T cacao nibs
  • 2T goji berries
  • 1/4 cup shredded dried coconut
  • 2T chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries


Mix the almond butter and agave nectar together.  Stir in remaining ingredients; the batter should hold together if it doesn’t add more coconut.  Scoop out tablespoon size cookies and place on a wax paper lined sheet pan.  Cover the cookies and place in the fridge.  These do well for 5-7 days in the fridge however you can freeze them and take them out shortly before you want to enjoy.


  1. I started the 6-week challenge about a month ago, and I did really well the first 3 weeks. Then I got sick, so I stopped. I’ve been meaning to pick it up again. It’s an intense workout, and I love that I can do it in the privacy of my home. Good luck. Oh, I recently discovered your blog, and I think it’s great. I’ve been thinking about going vegan for some time, so I read a lot of vegan blogs and they always inspire me.
