Happy Saturday. I just ate a delicious roasted beet kale salad for lunch followed by a carrot cake cupcake (my kind of finding balance!) so I’m in the mood to talk food.
Here’s what I ate last week!
Can you even believe that you’re seeing this as a breakfast for me? I’m for sure more of a sweet versus savory breakfast person but on Monday avocado toast and scrambled eggs sounded really good so I went with it.
Back to normally scheduled programming on Wednesday. Plain full-fat greek yogurt with honey, banana, granola, strawberries, dried cranberries and Wild Friends Almond Cashew Super Butter.
On Thursday mornings I teach at 7:15 a.m. but need something in my belly before I go so I usually eat some sort of simple and easy breakfast. This was just a piece of toast with peanut butter, honey and banana.
And finally, Friday was banana oatmeal with cottage cheese stirred in and topped with peanut butter.
Open faced sandwich with mayo, avocado, turkey, tomatoes and havarti cheese. A pear on the side and approximately 100 salt and vinegar potato chips while I was making this.
Leftover pork slider from the baby shower with cheese, a deviled egg and tomato red pepper soup.
Baby kale massaged with lemon juice, honey, sea salt and olive oil and topped with pears, strawberries, feta, dried cranberries, pistachios, avocado and chickpeas. A little balsamic drizzle on top.
Baby kale massaged with lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt and topped with hardboiled egg, avocado, dried cranberries, toasted pecans and pears. Trader Joe’s Almond Butter Turmeric dressing to finish.
Met a friend out for dinner on Monday night for an impromptu catch up. Salad with salmon.
Tuesday night quiche.
Ham, mushrooms, spinach, cheese and shallots with a side salad.
Wednesday night was Ina’s perfect roast chicken.
I had breast meat with barbecue sauce along with some of the veggies I roasted under the chicken (sweet potatoes, potatoes, red onion, parsnips and mushrooms) and roasted brussels sprouts.
Spaghetti squash bake with chicken, broccoli, tomatoes and cheese.
My take on this recipe is so good and I need to post it soon! 🙂 This was a bowl of cheesy deliciousness!
Remember this box of cupcakes? 4 down, 2 in the freezer waiting. 🙂
Hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend! See you back tomorrow with a dumbbell strength workout that you can take into the new week with you!
