Yesterday was the final day of my fall break, so I enjoyed all my meals & snacks at home. This was a nice change of pace from eating lunch at my desk at work.
My breakfast included spinach, which is somewhat a rarity for me. Not that I don’t love spinach, I just rarely include vegetables at breakfast time.
Breakfast included 2 slices of wheat toast, 1 egg + 1 egg white with spinach, and dollops of yogurt cream cheese and strawberry preserves.
Coffee x 2 and piece of 85% dark chocolate (of course)
Later a golden delicious apple that I picked from the orchard this past weekend…
After an upper body workout at the gym, I came home and experimented with the soy protein powder I recently bought. In went 1/4 c soy protein powder, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk , a few squirts of Dasani pink lemonade flavor enhancer, and a handful of ice.
It was pretty tasty- I’d definitely make it again. It was good for a not-so-heavy drink, since I was planning to eat lunch soon after.
Lunch was leftovers from Sunday night- easy vegetarian crock pot chili
and cornbread. Plus a handful of Terry’s krinkle cut fries as he walked by with his plate. Hehe.
This is a pretty unattractive lunch, but I promise it was tasty!
In the afternoon I got a little bored of studying, so I decided to make a batch of apple muffins
. While mixing them, I realized my apple made more than the called for 1 cup, so I ate the rest will putting these together.
I enjoyed one fresh out of the oven with pumpkin spice peanut butter and a cold glass of almond milk.
Dinner was one of those meals that feels fancy, but it actually super simple. I made us baked potatoes (I enjoyed mine with salsa and Greek yogurt), spinach & feta chicken sausage, and mixed greens (kale, turnips, & collards) sauteed with onions.
Later that night I enjoyed a flourless brownie
glass of almond milk (I’m obsessed). The brownies were yummy & quite fudgey. All you need is cocoa powder, bananas, and nut butter!
Not only do I love being able to cook all my meals/snacks, I love seeing my groceries being used up! Except my almond milk and eggs, those seem to run out too quickly.
Tell me: what did you have for breakfast today? I mean, it is obviously the best meal of the day, so we should talk about it.
