Itz WIAW

Another Wednesday brings us another WIAW hosted by the wonderful Jenn at Peas and Crayons.

How lucky we are! :)  Let’s get right to it.  Today you will see quite the variety in my meals as opposed to my usual eats that I had been repeating for the past few weeks.  Breakfast was wholesome and filling.

2 eggwhites plus 1 whole egg in between two pieces of whole grain toast.   I spread strawberry jelly on the toast and then poured sprinkled nutritional yeast on top.  Random, yes.  Delicious, yes.  Banana slices with melted peanut butter and cinnamon on top.

This week is Teacher Appreciate Week, so our awesome PTO hosted a lovely luncheon for us yesterday.   The theme was Italian and there were decorations, tablecloths, and even a pasta noodle attached to the invites.  Very clever!

Salad with creamy Italian dressing, red sauce pasta, and rolled up chicken things.  (Not sure the proper name for them.)  Oh and a few cubes of cheese that are hiding underneath the salad.  To top it off, there was a brownie that got consumed, but is going unpictured.  Snack this week has been fulfilled by my tasty date nut bran muffins I made.

I topped a plain one with cashew butter.  Yum!  I had some asparagus that needed to use before it went bad, so obviously I made Mama Pea’s Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter.  We literally cannot get enough of it; itz SO good.  Fit2Flex recently posted a Healthy Turkey Sloppy Joe’s recipe, and seeing that this was right up Jonny’s ally, I gave it a go.  However, I did use black beans instead of pinto beans, and I added carrots, and a yellow pepper in addition to the red.

The verdict?  Very good!  However, I definitely over-served the sloppy joe’s and/or our sandwich thins couldn’t hold the filling.  The bottom piece of the bun became soggy and fell apart during the first attempt to pick it up.  But have no fear…

We still made it work!  Taco sloppy joe’s!  It was very good and I made an enormous batch, so we’ll be enjoying leftovers (and I won’t have to cook) for a couple of days.  Yay!  And I know you just know what I have been having for dessert lately…

Chocolate-chip cookies!  (Gluten-free, too.)  Speaking of… have you entered the giveaway yet?  You could win the most amazing cookie mix I have ever tasted.  In fact, three of you could win, so hurry on up and enter now.

What has your dessert been lately?

  1. ooh that bran muffin with cashew butter looks so good :) my dessert lately have been cookies! i just throw a bunch of random ingredients in a bowl and bam! hopefully something delicious comes out

    happy teacher appreciation week!

    • it’s just different. i think cashew butter is more decadent… i can’t eat as much of it at a time because it tastes so rich. but that’s probably a good thing!

  2. I LOVE overstuffed sandwiches and that sloppy Joe looks yummy! Just wanted to say congrats to being a fellow FitFluential Ambassador. I know I’m a little late, but excited to have you on board! :)

  3. I must have missed your date nut bran muffin recipe while I was away on my trip! I’ll have to go check it out because those look amazing! :D

  4. Aaaaw,I want such a muffin with cashew butter,now! It looks soooo good & I’m missing cashew butter,really. :(
    I’ve baked some Jumbo PB cookies lately,but they only lasted until my mom and sister came home,haha… Oh well,but I made a small batch,don’t worry :P

  5. cinnamon PB + banana is probably one of my all time favorite combinations. i like to grill them together for a nice breakfast panini! as for dessert… i love anything. i recently got these Kashi cookies which are good, and then ginger creme newman’s cookies (aka oreos but gingery) which i love. but i would never ever say no to ice cream, hands down.
