I remembered to take pics! Heck yeah 🙂
Breakfast: mexican-spiced bison and peppers left over from last night, a banana, and a big scoop of coconut oil. I also had a delicious coconut milk latte.
Between meals I had 1 g of L-glutamine.
Lunch was more left over bison and a giant bowl of veggies (asparagus, onion, mushroom, sweet potato) with nutritional yeast and hemp seeds. I also had an iced green tea (no water, unsweetened).
My pre-allergy shot snacks were a banana, beef jerky, and some pumpkin seeds.
And after grocery shopping I nommed on some olives–not the whole bowl!
For dinner we had salmon, roasted potatoes, and zucchini noodles with asparagus and onions. I also had a small bowl of craisins for dessert.
I completed all of my #sleetpocalypse shopping today. Now, I just need my work to close…any minute now…guys?
In any case, here’s a little peek at what I ate today.
Breakfast was homemade sauerkraut and cauliflower potato soup with hemp seeds sprinkled on top. I forgot to take a pic of my coffee with coconut oil
Lunch was zucchini noodles with mushrooms, onions, broccoli, and avocado.
My snacks today were a banana and some cuties (most adorable orange ever). I probably ate 4 cuties.
Dinner was cauliflower rice, avocado, peppers, onions, and chicken with mexican spices.
I used some vacation days to take a long weekend, and it was definitely worth it. We got to take a little road trip to see some friends that we haven’t seen in years. It was, however, cold! Moving north is NOT on my list of things to do.
Before heading out, I did stock up the fridge with some veggies from the farmer’s market.
And, I had some more coffee/coconut oil emulsion.
Then, road trip! Illinois is very boring to drive through.
Michigan is also boring, but with snow.
We packed a full cooler for a one-night trip because it can be really difficult to find food on the road. Here’s a picture of the (cold) roasted sweet potato/butternut squash, avocado, and canned salmon that we ate in a Starbucks parking lot 🙂
Today was a “special” day for me with food. I started my morning with some leftover butternut squash lasagna, a marshmallow, and some blueberries, followed by coffee with coconut oil.
And then for lunch I had MORE LASAGNA. It was just one of those days where eating whatever was in the fridge had to happen 🙂 This time I had it with some broccolini.
I was so snacky in the afternoon/early evening. I had an avocado, an orange, some fruit from an edible arrangement, and some potato chips (delicious, cooked in sunflower oil).
Dinner was a random veggie mix of cauliflower rice, brussels sprouts, asparagus, sweet potatoes, onions, and mushrooms.
I feel like this weekend disappeared! Part of that might be due to the 3-hour nap I took on Saturday, but after getting up early to purchase Fall Out Boy tickets, I needed some rest 🙂 It was a good thing we got up early, too, because every venue is now sold out!
And, so, the randomness from my weekend…
This coffee was so tasty. There is no creamer in it. I added 2 tsps of coconut oil and used a hand blender to emulsify it.
We ended the weekend with a cheese-less, gluten-free pizza from Pi.
Looks like Wednesday might also be “smoothie day” in my house.
And some craisins for a mid-morning snack.
Lunch was some delicious Chipotle. Mine had barbacoa, fajita veggies, tomatoes, corn salsa, lettuce, and guacamole. Yum!
After work I snacked on some roast chicken and olives (not all of them, I swear!) before I headed out to the store to pick up dinner supplies. While I was out, I picked up some dried figs. They were so good. I miss eating Fig Newtons so much, and these totally did the trick.
For dinner I made butternut squash lasagna from this recipe. OMG it was delish. I made a few modifications to the recipe and will try to post my version soon.
And, randomly, I don’t know if anyone else is as excited about this as I am, but I am dying from excitement. Fall Out Boy is my favorite band, and they announced on Monday that they are back on tour after a 3-year hiatus and release a new single. Yes!
Are there any other Fall Out Boy fans out there?
