It’s meal time y’all. In fact, we are talking three square meals, a few snacks, and several nibbles. Check out my day of eats- and eats from others too!
Sometimes when my alarm clock goes off in the morning, I just don’t want to get out of bed. To wake myself up a little, I will oftentimes scroll through Instagram. This was the case last Sunday morning, but this time it produced some results: my breakfast!
Cooking Light posted this easy recipe for single-serving pancakes: 1 egg + 1 small ripe banana + 2 tbsp whole wheat flour. Enjoyed with peanut butter & coffee.
These were more pancake-y than a lot of the other single serving recipes I’ve tried. I am thinking even Terry would enjoy them.
I also had 1/2 cup apple juice. I am trying to drink this in the morning to see if it helps with my digestion, as it has in the past. It’s also a great way to get in lots of vitamin C first thing in the morning, which is especially important for me working in the school’s health center. We already seeing patients with flu-like symptoms!
All finished with a piece of 85% dark chocolate, because #breakfastdessert.
Lunch was a large pile of zoodles topped with a creamy marinara sauce made of jarred mushroom marinara sauce, ricotta, and shredded chicken. I added red pepper flakes for some heat and Parmesan for extra cheesiness.
Snacks that afternoon included;
Plain Greek yogurt with multi-grain Cheerios
And a frappe made with 1 tsp instant coffee, 6 oz unsweetened almond milk, and a little stevia all blended with ice.
Dinner was very simple because I wasn’t feeling very good (my stomach has been out of whack lately). The only thing I could think of that I wanted was roasted potatoes, which ended up being baked sweet potato fries with ketchup. Alongside I had eggs with spinach for some protein power.
Late night snack to push me through studying was a toasted pumpkin scone with strawberry preserves all washed down with a glass of almond milk.
And this where I tell you I am a total grazer, so I also a had few pieces of cantaloupe, some celery while I was chopping it, a handful of chips, and I’m sure a bite of something else.
There you have, a day of eat that I found satisfying and filling. Every day is a little different, depending on if I exercise, how well I slept the night before, or if it’s a special occasion, but overall everything has its way of balancing out.
Are you a grazer too?
What’s your go-to breakfast?
