Hey guys! I traveled to Tennessee last weekend for yoga teacher training and have been busy teaching, working and momming this week. Very delayed in sharing recent eats with you so I’ve got quite the round up today…more dinners than anything. Enjoy!
It’s super rare that I eat oatmeal these days but Finn loves it so sometimes when I make him a pot of oatmeal, I’ll make a small bowl for myself. This is my base banana oatmeal recipe with some cottage cheese and raisins stirred in and Justin’s vanilla almond butter on top. I haven’t bought Justin’s almond butter in forever but it was on sale at Whole Foods recently so I got a jar of the vanilla and maple flavors.
Overnight oats as a packed breakfast for yoga teacher training weekends in Tennessee. Such a great breakfast to pack for travel. I’ve been doing more of a blend of overnight oats and chia pudding lately where I do 1/3 or 1/4 cup of oats and 1-2 tablespoons of chia seeds. I mix it with a little bit of oat milk, some plain greek yogurt, a drizzle of honey and dried cranberries. It’s good to sit like that for 2-3 days in the fridge and then when I’m ready to eat it I add my toppings.
Oat sourdough from Verdant Bread topped with cream cheese and cottage cheese scrambled eggs.
I’ve had a chicken salad sandwich every day for lunch this week. I got a pound of it at a little restaurant that I like in Kingsport called Mustard Seed Cafe when I was in town for teacher training last weekend. I’ve also been buying plums the last couple of weeks and they have been great! Not a fruit that I eat a lot but a tasty one.
Spinach and arugula blend along with romaine, chopped turkey, pepitas, dried cranberries, avocado, chopped hardboiled egg, cherry tomatoes, balsamic and olive oil.
Turkey and ham sandwich with mayo, avocado, pepper jack and bread and butter pickles on honey wheat.
This was my best salad creation from the last couple of weeks. Chopped romaine, chopped turkey, chopped hardboiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, avocado, kalamata olives, pistachios and caesar dressing.
First off, I’ve been eating a lot of pizza these last couple of weeks. I picked this one up from Main Street Pizza Company in Kingsport after a long day of teacher training on Saturday. Ate it in my hotel room while watching The Chair with Sandra Oh on Netflix. Note, there’s also a blackberry cupcake from Little Cake in the photo. It was quite the delicious Saturday night. I ate half of this sausage and mushroom pizza on Saturday night and packed the rest on ice to bring home and have on Sunday night for dinner when I got back.
Another pizza night but with Whole Foods Mediterranean frozen pizza and their chopped kale caesar salad kit on the side.
Whole roast local chicken cooked over brussel sprouts, onions, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms.
Spaghetti with marinara sauce topped with sautéed squash, zucchini and peppers and served with sliced sautéed chicken breasts, shredded mozzarella and parmesan and fresh basil. Loved this creation so much!
Another hotel room dinner in Tennessee of sushi, edamame and the same cupcake as above. I have to have one every weekend that I’m there! The blackberry cake is the perfect balance of sweet and tart and the cream cheese icing on top is the best.
Salmon cooked in my Ninja Foodi Oven with sautéed okra and tomatoes and mashed sweet potatoes.
ALDI quinoa crunch veggie burger topped with a fried egg and served over quinoa with shredded cheese, avocado, sautéed spinach and the same hummus and feta dip as above.
Shredded chicken and sautéed pesto veggies over a Whole Foods super grains mix (white quinoa, red quinoa, millet and buckwheat) with same hummus and feta dip above. The veggies were so good! I sautéed squash, zucchini, peppers and onions and then added some jarred red pesto at the end. Definitely gave them a big flavor boost.
Shredded chicken over rice with roasted broccoli and baby portobello mushrooms, the same hummus and feta dip (ADDICTED to Cedar’s Feta Dip!) and lots of hot sauce.
Finally, takeout Thai from Aroy Thai in Charlotte. Green coconut curry with tofu and extra veggies. I think they make one of the best curries in Charlotte and it’s super affordable.
