My son was home sick yesterday with what we will call a slight stomach virus. I am saying slight because for one, I am not one to dwell on illnesses and make them more than they are and two, I like to consider the slight stomach viruses as the kind I will hopefully not catch.
Anyway, let’s take a look at some recent meals on this What I Ate Wednesday! Half way through the week already 🙂
I have been alternating between bowls of oatmeal and the three ingredient pancake for over a week now. Don’t tell my oatmeal this but at the moment, I am preferring the pancake.
For those mornings though when I run longer/harder, I definitely have oatmeal before my run and then follow my run up with the pancake.
It’s a nice compromise.
Look who is having a Happy Hanukkah…
I absolutely love this Starbucks travel coffee cup that my son remembered I wanted! I take it with me in the morning when I drive him to school and even find myself using it in the house as well.
I went a good six months without eating eggs or egg whites unless they were baked inside of dessert and suddenly I find myself eating eggs at breakfast and then again at lunch. Hi, Creature of Habit over here.
I am enjoying this roasted sweet potato and egg combo for lunch lately and always add a spoonful of peanut butter to tie it all together.
I found this Cucumber hummus at ShopRite the other day when I was waiting on the line for latkes and really recommend it. It’s so interesting and good! I can’t really say if it’s cucumber I taste, it just has this addicting flavor and texture.
Instead of pizza last night, I made my Italian Style Power Bowl by adding quinoa to the below mix of sweet potatoes, broccoli, onions and brussels sprouts cooked in tomato sauce in my cast iron skillet.
I have been snacking on the leftover cookies I made from Sunday night’s dinner all week.
Flourless peanut butter chocolate chip, flourless oatmeal raisin chocolate chip and double chocolate.
Even though I was burned out from cooking on Sunday, I did find myself back in the kitchen by afternoon, whipping up cookies for the first night of Hanukkah.
Getting creative with cookie recipes will always come naturally to me. I made three quick batches without really thinking much about what I was doing which was my favorite part of the process.
I wasn’t at all focused on remembering the ingredients or taking any photos. I made the cookies simply for the intention of getting a nice mix of dessert on the table and for leftover cookie enjoyment.
Of course after the fact I was sorry because each cookie was better than the last so I wish I paid more attention in order to share my recipes with you but part of me needed the mental break from the “work” part of baking, you know what I mean?What I Ate Wednesday time #wiaw #recenteats #oatmeal #cookies #eggs #fitfluential Click To Tweet
