Craving Eggs + Lots Of Salads

 

Hi! It’s Wednesday already! Somehow I didn’t get a post up since Sunday which isn’t exactly like me but hey, it happens.

I’m just in time for What I Ate Wednesday so I’m sure nobody minds anyway.

So last week, which you may have caught on my Instagram story, I found myself craving eggs for breakfast. I thought I saved the story as a picture but it saved as a video which I somehow loaded here as a picture and it got caught off. Don’t ask, at least I got it up!

The egg craving only happened for two mornings (maybe three?) but I went with how I was feeling instead of forcing myself to eat oatmeal.

Isn’t it funny how cravings happen and then once you satisfy them, they go away? It’s not that I don’t like eggs, it’s that I really only like them when I actually crave them. I don’t even know if that makes sense to anyone but me.

Anyway, there are a whole lot of salads in my life lately.

I had this cranberry walnut salad for lunch the other day at the Sweet Hollow diner.

And then there was this giant greek salad at the Premier Diner. You know the Premier Diner is my favorite, especially for breakfast!

Plus coleslaw and pickle! Diners are the best for the coleslaw and pickle before your meal arrives. 🙂

My favorite pizza and salad dinner combo. This was of course a corner slice of grandma pizza. Always the corner slice!

Most of my meals when I eat at home involve big salads. I had fallen off the sweet potato train but I think I am back. Roasted sweet potatoes added to a salad with chick peas and avocado are always a good idea.

Then there was this quick salad with chick peas plus half a toasted protein multigrain bagel with avocado.

The best dessert I’ve had recently is this chocolate fudge cake. While my son’s 14th birthday is this Friday, he was in fact born on Yom Kippur in 2003. So, every year on Yom Kippur (the date changes every year according to the Hebrew Calendar) we remember that I was in labor and he was born.

I call it his Hebrew Calendar birthday so we had a small chocolate fudge cake to celebrate Saturday night.

This chocolate fudge cake was so super delicious, with my idea of perfect ratio of fudge frosting to cake.

We haven’t quite figured out his birthday cake logistics for this Friday night because it will depend upon where he wants to go for dinner and if that restaurant offers a super delicious dessert. I will certainly keep you posted. 🙂

How do you feel about eggs? Do you love them and eat them often or only crave them occasionally?

    That cake looks delicious!! I’m now craving a good piece of chocolate cake lol. Having some salad with pizza always makes me feel like I’m making a healthy choice.

    I am definitely weird about eggs! I’ve never liked most preparations of eggs (scrambled, etc), and I’m mostly vegan, but every now & then, I’ll want an egg, and the preparation must be specific. It has to be a hard-cooked egg with an under-cooked to runny yolk; I don’t like hard-cooked eggs that have a completely cooked/solid yolk. That’s the only way I’ll eat them, and I don’t bake with them.

      I’m the same way – I really don’t like them but then I enter a craving or a phase but NEVER hard boiled eggs or egg salad < - ick

    THAT PICKLE!! I looove pickles 🙂

    And that cake looks delicious, too. Hope you have a great hump day!

    There’s a dinner near us that Ryan and I both love – it’s probably good that it is not too close to us, or we would eat there every Saturday. I am the same with eggs – if I am craving them, then I want them, but they aren’t my go-to currently. I think I overdid them in grad school when they were cheap and quick protein!

    I eat eggs everyday. I love them and crave them all the time. I love your big salads! They always look the best to me!

    I love eggs! I actually just made sweet potatoes with an egg baked into them and then I threw a bit of sriarcha on it. Yummy!

    I go between oatmeal, a protein bar, and a smoothie for breakfast but I have to be at work super duper early and I run in the morning. Blah. I do love a good pancake on the weekend though!

    We have quite a few diners here but I prefer them mainly for breakfast. There’s one place that serves cinnamon roll french toast and it’s the bomb!

    I used to eat eggs every day for breakfast but now its only sometimes on the weekend. I do like eggs but I think I got sick of them after eating them every day for so long!

      I can understand that! I think I went. through phases on eggs (or even just egg whites for a while) too

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table October 5, 2017, 1:26 am

    I almost always crave eggs – breakfast or dinner, doesn’t matter. And chocolate cake. Which looks amazing, btw.

    Earlier today, I smashed the Greek salad craving you inspired. Now I want chocolate cake though. Happy soon to be birthday Bunny.
