In my blogger brain, Wednesday = Food.
I am skipping the What I Ate Wednesday fun though in favor of showing you more than just one day of what I have been eating.
I have been hooked on the blueberry pie protein oatmeal with a scoop of peanut butter on top….
Yet at the same time, I have been trying NOT to eat oatmeal every single morning. I do think it’s good to shock the body every so often and eat something different.
I didn’t do anything crazy like eat something savory but I did bring back my three ingredient pancake for a change figuring I could always use some extra protein from the egg whites.
The only problem is, my pancake flipping skills are really rusty so I end up most mornings with a really big mess in front of me topped with peanut butter.
I added blueberries to the pancake too.
In fairness to myself, I think I just need a new nonstick skillet because clearly my pan has lost its nonstickness.
After being unable to flip my three ingredient pancake, I reinvented the recipe yesterday morning as a mug cake instead, with some Skoop in the mix too.
I really don’t like lunch, did you know this? It’s like that weird meal in between a yummy breakfast and a hearty dinner. What do I feel like? What will make me happy? What won’t weigh me down for the afternoon but what will fill me enough to function in a friendly manner?
I haven’t really felt like real food — you know, like salads and vegetables and savory menu items?
So that’s how I end up at Red Mango.
And how I end up toasting random slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and banana in the middle of the day.
But then I have a day where I really don’t know what I feel like eating and think I should be a good citizen and eat my greens so that’s how we arrive at a mess of leftover quinoa and brown rice with a mix of broccoli, brussels sprouts, sautéed onions, spinach and I think the remainder of the rainbow carrots.
I had planned on following a chili recipe as outlined in this week’s meal planning post but then I felt like doing my own vegetarian thing which isn’t shocking since I am not good at following recipes (because I can’t stand following directions).
I created the best vegetarian chili I have ever made using black beans, sweet potatoes and quinoa and the right combination of spices if I do say so myself. Too bad I didn’t measure them.
Pizza night last night took place at Villa Monte because I had zero interest in cooking. And I mean zero. I didn’t want anything to do with my kitchen.
Best whole wheat vegetable slice ever.
Instead of looking at my repetitive apples with peanut butter and chocolate chips, let’s take a look at my son’s dessert which he has named the “Benji Special”
He eats this greek yogurt with sprinkles, honey and mini chocolate chips every night.
As for me, I haven’t had greek yogurt since the summer and the thought of it makes me gag. How could that be? I lived on it for so long and now I can barely look at it.Recent Eats #food #oatmeal #pizza #chili #vegetarian #redmango @healthyskoop #fitfluential Click To Tweet
