I hope everyone is hanging in there. I’m feeling a little worn down… but I mostly blame myself for staying up too late. Now, that’s something I should work on.
It’s Wednesday, so I’ve got some yummy eats to share with you! This post is a little last minute (aka it’s time for bed), so excuse my lack of chattiness.
Be sure to go and check out all the other awesome WIAWs!
Breakfast: banana cocoa baked oatmeal topped with sunflower butter with two cups of coffee and a piece of 85% dark chocolate.
I COULD EAT THIS BREAKFAST EVERYDAY.
Recipe for the baked oatmeal: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 mashed banana, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1 egg white, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking powder. Combine all ingredient and pour into a greased oven safe container. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes, then broil for 3 minutes.
Snack: Unpictured very average apple, sliced finely.
A VERY necessary diet coke.
I was struggling at my desk and knew that cold, crisp DC would do me right.
Lunch: big salad with spinach, honey mustard baked tofu, farro, carrots, and celery all tossed with apple cider yogurt dressing.
Downside of food prepping? I have to use mixing bowls to pack my lunch because I’ve run out of storage containers. Also, this is my first time cooking farro and I love it! It’s like a softer and heartier brown rice. Plus, it’s much cheaper than quinoa.
Snack: Cashew cookie Larabar
This was my second Larabar, which I bought because it was on sale. I didn’t love the first and I didn’t think too much of this one either. It’s certainly fine, but I think I’d rather just eat nuts and dried fruit in their whole form. Truthfully, I think I was expecting a cashew cookie and felt like it was lacking both the cashew and the cookie.
Dinner: slow cooked ancho-chipotle drumsticks with slaw (made with Greek yogurt) and a baked potatoes with butter and mozzarella. Finished with a few sips of OJ.
This looks like a very humble dinner, but it was so good! The meat was really well seasoned and tender. I don’t usually buy drumsticks, because I hate eating off the bone, but then I realized I could just pull the meat off before eating it. Duh. Plus, drumsticks are rather inexpensive!
Snack: S’mores bar with a glass of cold unsweetend almond milk.
FYI: I made this batch with whole wheat flour and it was definitely fine, but I’d say you couldn’t fool anyone that it was unhealthy. I’m sure all my health food loving friends don’t mind though! 😉
That’s it for me today. I’m about to repeat that snack and head to bed.
So you tell me…
Favorite “humble” meal to make?
Larabar fan? What is your favorite bar? I’m forever a Cliff bar fan.
