Y’all, I’m cracking up over here. I always know that it’s around the 3 p.m. hour because I hear our mail lady vrooming around the neighborhood delivering mail. She GUNS that little truck from box to box and you can hear it all over the neighborhood.
I’m going to get a little crazy and switch things up and share my recent eats on a Tuesday instead of Friday. I have a few other post ideas in the works for later this week so I thought I’d go ahead and knock this one out first. Look out for an awesome new workout coming for you tomorrow. I’m sitting here and feeling all the soreness from teaching it yesterday…and I have to do it again in a couple hours!
Smoothies or smoothie bowls. After an extended hiatus, they’re all I want these days. Still rolling with the combo of almond or coconut milk, strawberries, blueberries, sometimes peaches, sometimes raspberries, frozen banana (always), peanut butter, a date and sometimes spinach, sometimes not. I really need to make a big batch of homemade granola to go on top of these. It’s so much better than store bought. I think my peanut butter chia seed granola is just the ticket.
Example B. Repeat over and over.
Salad with arugula, pears, avocado, pistachios, dried cranberries and a sesame ginger dressing. Sparkling water on the side. This time of year I crave it during the afternoon.
RE: this lunch. Yeah…it held me over for all of about an hour before I was in the kitchen making a piece of toast with cashew butter and honey. I’ve been so hungry (and thirsty!) since embarking on this 30 day yoga challenge and doing more strength.
Big bowl of leftover roasted chicken sausage and veggies over a bed of arugula with couscous, avocado and a dollop of hummus. Now this lunch did hold me over all afternoon.
Scrambled eggs over avocado toast with fruit on a rainy day. Comfort food.
Arugula, dried cranberries, radishes, sliced almonds, avocado, strawberries and sesame crusted yellowfin tuna with a sesame ginger dressing.
Avocado toast and grapes for a lunch that was so late that it was more like a mid-afternoon snack. I think I didn’t eat breakfast until 10-10:30 this day, which is really unusual for me. I wake up starving!
This salad/lunch bowl mash up was so good. Arugula tossed with quinoa, olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice and then topped with butternut squash, avocado, dried cranberries, sliced avocados and the last of the sesame crusted tuna. Aged balsamic to finish it off.
Last week’s dinners were made simple thanks to 80Fresh. Since I missed my weekend and food shopping/prep due to my Harrisburg workshop, I thought it would be easiest to use a delivery service so I could jump straight into work. This apple balsamic meatloaf dish was so tasty and came with roasted root veggies and green beans and almonds.
Shrimp and cauliflower grits. Yum again!
Our last 80Fresh meal was tacos al pastor which was marinated pork tenderloin with green cabbage, pineapple salsa and a cilantro-lime crema. 80Fresh sent a side of black beans and I added some cilantro lime rice cooked with coconut oil because it is literally my favorite thing to eat right now.
You can check out my full review of 80Fresh in this post where you’ll also find a discount code for 30% off of subscriptions.
Non-80Fresh dinners have included this panko-crusted red snapper. I topped red snapper fillets with a smear of Chef Alyssa’s Smoked Chili & Rosemary Mustard and then dredged the fillets in a mix of panko, Italian seasoning, sea salt and parmesan. Topped with lemon wedges before baking. Roasted broccoli and couscous on the side.
Braised chicken in a lemon butter white wine sauce with asparagus, peas and leeks. Roasted yukon golds on the side. Based on this recipe with some liberties taken to make it easier/tastier. This one was repeat-worthy!
And finally, this deconstructed sushi bowl was quite the Instagram sensation on Sunday night. Brown rice tossed with a little rice wine vinegar and some coconut aminos and topped with spiralized carrots and zucchini, edamame, avocado, dried seaweed, sesame crusted yellowfin tuna and wasabi aioli. I think this one needs it’s own recipe post. 😉
