Yesterday was all about simple foods. I had to finish up two assignments before wrapping up the semester (minus 3 finals) and at 12:15 am Wednesday morning I can say I am finished.
So here’s what simple looked like for me yesterday. Thanks for the link-up!
A simple breakfast… toast & an egg.
Breakfast: Two slice whole grain toast, strawberry jelly my grandmother brought me from her trip to the mountains, neufchatel cheese, and a fried egg. The usual coffee and dark chocolate.
A simple morning snack… grapes.
Frozen grapes that I accidentally left in my work’s freezer last week. #score
A simple lunch… leftovers.
Lunch: Leftover pumpkin ricotta pasta bake and a simple salad dressed with oil and balsamic vinegar
A simple post-workout snack… latte.
First skinny peppermint mocha of the season. Not bad, but not nearly as good as I remembered from last year. It might be who made it. I drank about half before realizing it wasn’t getting better.
A simple afternoon snack… a classic.
Banana + MELTY peanut butter. Melt your peanut butter 1st. Do it.
A simple dinner… crockpot style.
One of my favorite easy meals is putting carrots, potatoes, and onions on the bottom of a crockpot and then placing a whole chicken on top. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. The veggies are out this world savory and the chicken is super moist. And luckily I’m getting better and better with de-boning meat.
A simple late night snack… popcorn.
Stove top popcorn (simply salted) with mini dark chocolate Hershey’s. This plate x2. We will be watching the Star Wars saga over the next two weeks and last night we watched #2. Can you believe it is my first time seeing them? So far I really like them. Teenage Anakin is kinda creepy, but Obi-Wan Kenobi is the man.
So you tell me…
What does “simple food” look like to you?
Are you a Star Wars fan?
