It’s Wednesday aka hump day aka we are halfway there! This week is vacation bible school at my church, so we are staying extra busy. I do my best to remember how much I loved VBS as a kid and it powers me through the evening.
This day of eats is from Monday. Mondays are usually good days, but I cannot deny the dragging feeling that comes along with them. Almost always I am craving chocolate and caffeine. Lately, there’s been an emphasis on the chocolate. No worries, this Monday I definitely filled my need for chocolate.
Thanks for the link-up, Jenn!
Breakfast: Coconut flour pancakes with peanut butter and coffee. I tried this recipe and really enjoyed them! The banana flavor was strong and they were very light and fluffy.
Finished by a square of Lindt 70% chocolate. (Chocolate round 1)
Lunch: Egg salad (1 egg + 1 egg white, 2 tsp dijon, 1-2 tbsp mayo made with olive oil, 1/4 of chopped cucumber, plus dill/pepper), sea salt gluten free crackers, and an especially fragrant orange
Snack: pre-workout rice cake with sunbutter and 1/2 a banana (this was good, but cinnamon would’ve brought it over the top!)
Sips of this chocolate almond milk I saw on sale at Big Lots (love that store!). I kind of think it tastes like Yoo-hoo, a childhood favorite. (Chocolate round 2)
Blueberries after grocery shopping, I couldn’t resist digging into this pint.
Dinner: crockpot tomato and squash sauce with shredded mozzarella, rotisserie chicken from the freezer, and a baked Yukon potato.
I had some fresh tomatoes given to me from a family in my church and they were super duper ripe. I knew they wouldn’t last long, so I threw them and a small squash in the crockpot with a little bit of olive olive and spices and let them cook on low all day. When I got home I put all of it in the food processor to make a (low-FODMAP) sauce. Delicious.
Snack: Truffle date (chocolate round 3) + kefir with blueberries and cornflakes
What’s a truffle date you may ask? It’s a date that’s planned after taking a trip to the Lindor store and acquiring 10 truffles in a variety of flavors. We decided to enjoy one together for the next five days. My favorite so far is the dark chocolate-orange, one of my all time favorite dessert combinations. I will be sad when these “dates” are over.
Overall, it was a yummy day of eats. I felt pretty tired throughout the day, so good fuel was necessary. You know what I mean?
Are you a chocolate lover? Will you choose chocolate over other desserts (like me!)?
Anyone else thinks chocolate almond milk kind of tastes like Yoo-hoo?
