Breakfast: Pancake made with oats, egg, applesauce, cinnamon, peaches, and vanilla almond milk. Topped with more peaches, shredded unsweetened coconut, and Barlean’s Mango-Peach Omega Swirl Fish Oil. Speaking of delicious fish oils, don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win a Pina Colada Omega Swirl ($25 value!).
So delicious. The Pina Colada Omega Swirl would taste amazing with bananas and coconut. The Omega Swirls are seriously better than syrup and way healthier!
Snack-time: Tons of healthy banana bread bites! A bite here. A bite there. Lotsa bites everywhere.
So many bites that now it’s gone. Boo.
Lunch: Beast of a salad. I started with a bag of broccoli slaw then diced up a green pepper, red pepper, yellow squash, part of a red onion, and added sunflower seeds, almond slivers, black beans, and corn.
For the dressing, I mashed up an avocado and added some lemon and lime juice, a few drops of soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and spicy mustard. Random combo, but it worked! This made a gigantic salad, so I’ve been eating it all week. I had the afterthought to dice up an apple or add raisins for some sweetness. Maybe next time.
Dinner: Grill success! After my latest grill disaster, I was determined to make it work on the grill. I kept it simple with asparagus and tofu. The asparagus was lightly sprayed with olive oil and just a dash of sea salt was used. The tofu was marinated in Trader Joe’s Sweet Chili Sauce.
Avocado slices were enjoyed on the side for a nice dose of healthy fats. Dinner was amazing. Even Jonny said that tofu on the grill was “unbelievable.” (His words, not mine – promise!) The only minor mishap was that I forgot to spray the grill as directed by my wise father as well as everyone else on google, so the tofu didn’t flip as nicely as it should have. Lesson learned.
Dessert: Papaya! I love papaya and last weekend my dad bought me a giant one at the Farmer’s Market. I do think the little seed/bally things on the inside look kind of gross, but fortunately they are super easy to scoop out.
The papaya was perfectly ripe, and I scooped it right out with a spoon.
That does it for this week’s WIAW!
