Itz Wednesday which means itz a WIAW party over at Peas and Crayons! My eats yesterday were very random, mostly healthy, and totally delicious. I love food, so pretty much everything I eat is delicious. Breakfast is obviously first and that was my most put together meal of the day. I went with my Coconut Flour Pancake - itz always a good one! (I used two whole eggs instead of 1/4 cup egg whites.)
I topped it with coconut oil and fresh blueberries and strawberries. So good I didn’t even need syrup! I highly recommend spreading a thin layer of coconut oil on your pancakes; it makes the world of difference!
Lunch was… interesting. I grabbed a bunch of stuff from my fridge and decided I’d assemble it all at school. My intentions were to have a whole wheat tortilla filled with avocado, spinach, and raw peppers. However, when I cut into my avocado, I saw it was not good at all. #fail But then I noticed in the teacher’s lounge was a tray of taco dip that a co-worker made. I spread a couple scoops of that in my tortilla then added the spinach and pepper slices. It worked and was actually tasty!
I made and ate a second one after the first. The tortillas I use are La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious. They pack 7 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein! And they only have 50 calories on top of it all. Great stats for a tortilla.
Mediterranean Snacks sponsored my school’s Wellness Wednesday and provided us with Baked Lentil Chips & Baked Lentil Crackers. Lentils are among the world’s healthiest foods and are high in protein, iron, vitamin B1 and essential minerals for a healthy diet.
I had a bag of the Baked Lentil Chips for a snack. I think the Rosemary flavored chips have the most flavor. They all pack a great crunch though!
I had a meeting after school yesterday and was pretty hungry after school. I munched on a couple of things (like the Tropical Rice Pudding I have leftover in my fridge), made Jonny a peanut butter sandwich for his lunch tomorrow (and snuck a couple spoonfuls of pb), and then decided I should probably prepare food for dinner instead of munching my way through the kitchen. Our fridge is a bit bare, and I didn’t feel like waiting for any meat from our freezer to defrost.
I had a butternut squash in the pantry that needed to be used, so I roasted it on 400 for about 30 minutes and sprinkled cinnamon on top. Then I steamed some [frozen] broccoli and topped it with nooch sauce (nutritional yeast + Silk almond milk).
Since there wasn’t much protein in this, I knew I’d be hungry later. I had a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in my pantry and decided to last night was the night they would get made! I enjoyed a couple of cookies with milk for a bedtime snack.
The rest of the batch will be taken to school to share my with team. These cookies aren’t healthy, but itz all about moderation! I love my indulgences!
What’s the best thrown together meal you’ve made lately?
