I think itz safe to say, I’m fully cured of my food hangover. Now that I’ve got that situation under control, let’s talk food again. Good, healthy, wholesome food. Specifically, WIAW food via Jenn’s Peas and Crayons.
We had leftover mushrooms from something I made last week, so for breakfast I threw the baby bellas in with the spinach while it was wilting over the stove top and topped my eggs with them. Very tasty!
With all the hot weather summer brings, I am a huge smoothie fan. I made a very vanilla smoothie with ice, vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder, shredded unsweetened coconut flakes, Bob’s Red Mill ground flaxseeds, Chobani plain yogurt (for extra protein and added creaminess), vanilla NuNaturals sweetener, vanilla unsweetened almond milk, and spinach.
Love that green! For lunch I decided to break out my spiralizer because it has been way too long since I used it last. I spiralized a zucchini and topped it with tuna salad I made. Some garlic herb bread accompanied my lunch.
I mixed some tuna with a little of Trader Joe’s eggless reduced fat mayonnaise, relish, and red onion. Simple, packed with protein, and tasted good. I wanted to continue my theme of cramming as many vegetables in with my meals as possible (remedy for food hangover), so I decided to grill whatever veggies were in my fridge: red peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, green pepper, and an onion.
Confession #1: I’ve never grilled before. I know, I know, ridiculous! Jonny does all of the grilling around here, but after reading Powercake’s post yesterday, I decided to give it a go. I figured I couldn’t really mess it up unless I burnt the heck outta them, so I made sure to keep a close eye on them.
Confession #2: I may or may not needed to call my dad just to turn the grill on. Thank you, FaceTime. Jonny wasn’t home, and I wanted to get dinner ready by the time he arrived. How was I supposed to know all it takes is a twist of the left burner, right burner, and igniter? Well, now I do, so you can all stop laughing at me because dinner turned out just lovely!
We are in dire need of some grocery shopping around here, so all the veggies were served with was some quinoa and corn (which was an awesome combination!). There was one leftover hot dog, and I graciously let Jonno have that. I even threw it on the grill to heat it back up. Just call me the grill-master!
After dinner, I was hankerin’ for something sweet, but didn’t want to overload on the sugar. Again. I had just a half scoop left of my banana protein powder, so I combined that with my Sunwarrior vanilla to make protein fudge. I topped the fudge with Barlean’s Strawberry Banana Flax Oil.
I tried to make a heart, but the swirl got a little drippy. Don’t forget: YOU can enter the giveaway to win a bottle of Barlean’s Omega Swirl Strawberry Banana Flax Oil!
