What I Ate Wednesday August 5, 2015

 

Jumping right into the food if you don’t mind because I need to get out the door super early today to pick my son up from his dad and get him to camp!

Breakfast:

No english muffins to show you this morning. Back to oatmeal these days,  a little bit before I run with some banana and peanut butter (not pictured) and then a nice big post run bowl which is by far my favorite meal of the day.

Cold, cooked oatmeal mixed with berries, Skoop B-Strong and peanut butter.

I lose count of how many mugs of coffee I have in the morning but the other day I did have some Yogi tea for a change. Kava Stress Relief is my favorite flavor.

Lunch:

It’s been a while since I mashed my chick peas with avocado. I was on that kick for lunch for so long and then one day stopped. I brought it back this week only this time I added some Dijon mustard to the mash with a side of roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and brussels sprouts.

Non stop watermelon, non stop.

Dinner:

Look at me making something different! Spaghetti squash has been on my mind so I bought a small one at Whole Foods (because it’s not spaghetti squash season which means the price per pound is too high for my liking).

It was so incredibly good! I baked the spaghetti squash and then mixed in tomato sauce, topped it with mozzarella cheese and placed it back in the oven to get all bubbly.

I ate half and served it with a side of some of the below veggies from my Italian style power bowl which I prepared at the same time. I got all food preppy the other night, I don’t know who I am.

Dessert:

Nothing overly new here HOWEVER I have been making a delicious new peanut butter chocolate chip dip. I think I will share the super simple recipe really soon.

    Its been too long since I have had spaghetti squash. I actually haven’t seen it in TJs so thats probably why I have forgotten about it. I also love butternut squash, but I definitely prefer buying it cut up because I find it exhausting to do myself:)

    Oookay, I want to eat everything you posted. I mean it. That lunch. Hello, cheesy squash for dinner. And all the oatmeal and fruit. Yes, please. I really like to see somebody else who is all about decent serving sizes and lots of produce. Invite me over ;)?
    On a random note: at first I thought your watermelon was grapefruit because the way you cut/chopped it some of the pieces looked like that 😀 .
    A recent weeknight ‘dessert’ though I’d rather call it a snack actually came about because I’m out of coconut flour: Greek yogurt/Quark mixed with PB2, my grandma’s homemade cherry jam, leftover cooked bulgur stirred in and topped with almond butter.

      I think it depends upon what your stomach can handle. I wake up hungry but depending upon how hungry dictates how much I eat. For races I eat a whole bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter and a banana. Most mornings, it’s less than that but really depends on what you personally can run on! I eat more after my run than before though. I don’t measure things unfortunately so I can’t really give exact/ accurate amounts.

    I don’t remember the last time I made a dish with spaghetti squash or sweet potatoes. Unfortunately both are ridiculously expensive in Kuwait. It actually sucks because Joshua doesn’t eat either so I wouldn’t even have to buy much. How about you just enjoy one or the other for me? 🙂

      Haha – definitely not a stomach of steel. I can only eat a few brussels sprouts at a time and if I eat too many fresh roasted vegetables, I am totally uncomfortable. I stick with the frozen vegetables for the most part these days and limit the variety. So hard on the stomach!
