I’m switching up this week’s daily eats post and sharing a day of weekend eating! My weekend eating is a bit different than weekday eating. It’s less structured, not as healthy and typically is lacking vegetables.
beverage: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2. I spent the morning putzing around, working on some recipes and starting to pack for the hospital! Next week I’m determined to go to brunch.
breakfast: almond butter french toast (2 slices sprouted bread + 1 egg + 1 Tbsp almond butter + 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup). This is for the Snap Fitness blog (I create recipes for them) and you’ll probably see the recipe soon, it’s a good one!
workout: 45 minute walk. Though I’m not sure that should be categorized as a workout…I’m still on a walking and physique 57 workout plan.
lunch #1: cherrios w/ ancient grains (sent from General Mills) + blueberries + 2% milk.
Sundays are my meal prep days and while I typically make salads for our lunches, in an effort to clean out the freezer of some tempeh and quinoa, I made Cuban Fried Quinoa with Black Beans and Tempeh via Oh My Veggies. If you like quinoa and tempeh, you’ve got to try this, it’s great!
lunch #2: mac & cheese + shrimp linguine sauce. The weirdest lunch ever. We had leftover shrimp linguine sauce but I wanted mac & cheese instead of plain pasta, so I ate the sauce on the side.
snack: starburst jelly beans. My favorite Easter treat!
dinner: 2 chicken drumsticks + green beans + potato chips. I had originally intended to make some sweet potato fries, but it was too hot for the oven and I didn’t remember until the chicken was already on the grill. Potato chips made an excellent replacement.
dessert: more jelly beans!
thoughts: Too much candy. Not enough vegetables. And not really worrying about any of it.
