WIAW – August 7

Sorry for the missed week, guys. It has been super crazy town around these parts. I am getting ready to travel for another work trip, and I seem to keep eating things I am allergic too 😦 and I don’t know what they are 😦 including today 😦 😦

Breakfast today was some leftover veggies with barbecue beef and a side of bacon 🙂

Crazy town led us to Chipotle for lunch. I had a barbacoa taco salad. It was super delish, but I tried the salad dressing for the first time today, and it did not agree with my insides 😦 I am extra sad because it was really good salad dressing.

Dinner was steak with asparagus and broccoli… Super yum

WIAW- Vegas edition!

Greetings from Vegas!

I have been living the hotel life for the last few days while on a work trip. It’s been a lot of fun, but it definitely required a lot of planning to make sure I would have food for the week. I may write a separate post about the planning and what I did for the whole week. For now, I want to share what I had today. The event provides food for part of the week, and they have been amazing with allergies.

Breakfast: I brought my own nectarine and avocado, which I added to the bacon and fruit salad provided (both of which were labelled as safe for me).

Lunch: barbecue chicken and salad. I got to be the first person to eat off the buffet to make sure nothing was cross contaminated.

Dinner: I have been eating in my room every night, and enjoying relaxing in front of the television. Today I had a can of tuna, tomatoes, and avocado with rice chips.

Between meals I snacked on some pumpkin seeds, and, of course, coffee 😊

WIAW-July 3

Oops..this post is a little late, but I am really excited to get it up because I finally ate something new for breakfast!

Coconut milk yogurt with hemp, pumpkin, and chia seeds, honey, and blueberries.

For lunch I had zucchini pasta with mushrooms, tomato sauce, and hemp seeds. It was absolutely delicious…until I got sick 😦 The only thing we could think of is that I am sensitive to the calcium chloride used as a preservative. Has anyone else run into this?

Dinner was a serious of junk food disasters because we are in the middle of grading exams for my gf’s summer class. There was some gluten free pizza, potato chips, and summer sausage involved, but I did not grab any pics. Ugh. Today will be a better day. I have a grass fed beef brisket in the crockpot 🙂

Oh, long summer days. If only I could spend them outside. Nothing too exciting on the food front in today’s post, but here are the photos for your enjoyment 😊

Snacks! I had FAR too many pistachios, but they were mighty delicious.

I missed my lunch photo, but I had a salad with tons of veggies and avocado.

Dinner was tilapia, potatoes, and sauerkraut.

WIAW – June 12

And, I’m back on track! Nothing too exciting for what I ate today, but I am happy to be back on track with my blog posts, and I am VERY happy to have this awesome summer weather. We are hitting mid-90’s temperatures with some classic STL humidity, and it feels wonderful. I am definitely looking for every excuse to go outside during the day.

Breakfast- so in love with this beef liver pate….can’t help it (recipe coming soon).

Snacks- a banana and some homemade apple chips from my new dehydrator!

WIAW – May 15

I feel like I spent my entire day running in circles, when I really just sat in a cubicle all day. My poor adrenal glands…

Breakfast: I am still obsessed with beef liver pate, plantain crackers, kombucha, and brussels sprouts.

Grabbed a banana for a snack, followed by this huge salad for lunch.

Afternoon snack: delicious Kind bar. Not a bad flavor, but not really my favorite thing to snack on.

Dinner: bison burger with mushrooms over arugula with zucchini and yellow squash. Amazing.

WIAW – May 1

More like Lame 1. I would just like to say that I started out the day so well, and then I spent 3 hours straight in meetings and my brain turned to mush. And so, I now present “What I ate (for breakfast) Wednesday.”

Today I had turkey/liver meatballs, sweet potato with coconut oil, and a pear.

Lunch (not pictured, ugh) was a salad with romaine, arugala, carrots, onions, avocado, olives, and salmon with the most amazing honey mustard dressing.

Dinner was some sweet potato fries (check out my Twitter feed for the one photo), and grilled tuna steak.

During the day I also snacked on some plaintain chips and raw honey (omg yum).

WIAW – April 24

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.
