Hey there, Wednesday. You’re one of the best days. Why? Because we are half way to the weekend. Why else? Because it’s time to share and see some wonderful eats!
These eats are from Sunday, a day that is fairly busy for me. We have church in the morning and evening, so we don’t stay still for long. Most Sundays I try to be good about prepping some food while also getting a little homework out of the way. This particular Sunday I did good 😉
My day started with a short stack of coconut flour pancakes. Because I’m a dipper, on the side was warmed peanut butter mixed with a little unsweetened almond milk. Plus the usual coffee x2 and a piece of 85% dark chocolate.
Sundays are pretty much the only day I don’t have a morning snack since I’m in church all morning. However, I do have a few hard candies to quiet my stomach. There’s a really nice older man who spoils me with a handful every Sunday and it’s the good stuff- Werthers!
After church lunch was served: nachos for two. The blue corn tortilla chips were topped with onions, chopped carrots, leftover cauliflower, kidney beans, and cheddar cheese. Salsa, sour cream, and hot sauce for dipping.
I love nachos, because they are so customizable. I feel like my nachos are asking the world- “and who says healthy is boring?” These nachos were yummy, but not as delicious as my Friday Night Nachos.
A little after lunch, Terry and I went for a run/walk around a pond near our house. We are back to doing the Couch to 5k program after a failed attempt this past November. Word of advice? Don’t start a running plan going into the winter, but instead out of winter.
After getting our sweat on, instead of driving back home Terry took a surprise turn- a turn to Baskin Robbins.
Ice cream! Y’all, the best flavor in the world is mint chocolate chip.
Word of advice, choose a lover who loves ice cream and impromptu trips to get it.
Then it was prep time! I pretty much tasted everything you see here.
Chocolate orange tofu pudding– I’ll have this for post workout snacks.
Vegan pumpkin muffins turned into bread because I hate cleaning the muffin pan.
Whole grain rigitoni and steamed broccoli tossed in a hummus-yogurt dressing– this will be for my lunches. I’ve learned that packing lunches is the most challenging meal planning of the week, so making a bowl of pasta salad to last the week saves so much time in the morning.
Turkey & meatballs
After evening church I came home and made a simple, but incredibly delicious dinner: turkey & spinach meatballs (recipe pending), cauliflower rice, and buttered toast.
Why have I never made cauliflower rice? It is wonderful! Even Terry was singing its praises. All I did was saute it in a teensy bit of canola oil and add salt. Side note, cutting your toast into three slices makes it a lot easier to eat. No buttery cheeks!
After finishing Monday’s blog post, I sat down with a snack to watch a little Netflix. This evenings snack was a warmed pear + sunflower seed butter and a mug of unsweetened almond milk.
We are currently watching Worst Cooks of America and I am loving it! It’s great because I am actually learning a lot watching the demos by Chef Anne & Chef Bobby. Plus there are plenty of laughs to be had!
I’m headed to do the same thing tonight…. gotta love a good routine ;).
So you tell me…
Do you watch TV before bed? Or do you read?
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
What’s your number one most helpful food to have prepped for the week?
