It wasn’t so easy this week to decide which day to feature for today’s What I Ate Wednesday fun!
After some serious thought (all of life’s problems should be this difficult) I decided to go with Monday.
The truth is, breakfast for me usually looks exactly the same, any day of the week.
Although this week’s oatmeal with blueberries (peanut butter added after picture taken) is served in one of my new pretty bowls from Anthropologie!
After my workout I had some of this super special oatmeal which I had made in order to take some pictures for a recipe post I am planning for Friday.
I recently (and by total accident!) created an UNBELIEVABLE oatmeal combination which I want to call unbaked baked oatmeal because it tastes like baked oatmeal from the diner but it’s not from the diner and it isn’t baked.
We will talk about it more on Friday, I promise!
This salad. Oh, this salad.
I had the pleasure of having lunch at one of my all-time favorite restaurants, Mother Kelly’s. This warm-cold salad consists of tomato, cucumber, onion, goat cheese, craisins, candied walnuts, beets with grilled portobello mushroom, asparagus, roasted peppers and string beans.
I am no cheese lover but the little bit of goat cheese combined with everything else — out of control!
I would try to replicate this salad at home but I just know it would never be the same.
It’s stir fry week in our house.
I bought wild shrimp from Trader Joe’s the other day for a change of pace, mainly for my son.
The easiest and most delicious shrimp stir fry that comes together within minutes!
I should probably devote a post on the topic of how simple, quick and customizable this stir fry can be, and most importantly how you can simultaneously make a few versions if you have different diets dining at the same time.
It’s not that I don’t eat shrimp on occasion, I do, but quite often I am happy with my plant-based stir fry bowls.
Instead of adding shrimp to my plate, I mashed chick peas in with the avocado and mixed it all around to combine nicely with the brown rice, diced sweet potato, brussels sprouts and broccoli cooked with a mix of soy sauce and sweet chili sauce.
Granny Smith Apple + Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chips = Happy
