Monday in Meals (WIAW)



It’s already Wednesday! I’m sort of wishing the week away because I am just so ready for the weekend to be here already. I honestly keep thinking we are a day ahead of where we actually are though in the week, probably because I was out Monday night. This always happens to me when I go out on a Monday night! I get so thrown off but it was worth it this time because I was out enjoying really good food. 🙂

Let’s discuss Monday in meals!


Um, how AMAZING does this English muffin with peanut butter look to you? Such a simple meal but always so delicious and satisfying especially with a mug of Yogi Kava Stress Relief tea. Great flavor combination!

Also, I am back to buying Thomas’ Whole Wheat English muffins. While I do still enjoy the Trader Joe’s British Muffins, I like the crispness of Thomas’ English Muffins and don’t really care much about the ingredients list as I used to. With a quick glance, it’s good enough.


I made a big salad with roasted sweet potatoes (both roasted Japanese sweet potatoes and regular sweet potatoes) plus a mix of quinoa and lentils that I cooked in the morning to have for the week.



Monday night I had a really good dinner at Allora.

We started with this margarita pizza. I could eat pizzas like this every day for the rest of my life and never complain once that I am bored with my meal.


I forget exactly what was in this salad but I do know it was a shaved Brussels sprouts with kale salad and I really liked it.


Oh, plus this order of Brussels sprouts which were cooked with bacon and I didn’t complain or say please make them without bacon. I just ate around it.

Crazy milkshakes are still a thing. Remember when I went to Black Tap for the crazy milkshakes last year? More and more restaurants are making them now too.

While this milkshake isn’t as large or as over the top as Black Tap, I enjoyed eating all of the toppings and never opened the straw to drink the actual chocolate shake. I bet that’s what happens to people who order these crazy milkshakes a majority of the time.


Linking up today with Sprint 2 The Table for What I Ate Wednesday!

    That Brussel sprout and kale salad looks amazing! I have never had an over the top milkshake – it’s been years since I have had a milkshake even. I would probably eat all the toppings also and leave the shake.

      milkshakes would never be a choice for me ever except for now with all the restaurants making the crazy types with all the toppings on the glass. that’s the best part!

    I just had an English muffin that was pumpkin spice flavored on Monday for breakfast; it was SO simply delicious.

    That milkshake looks epic! It’s amazing how you find these yummy desserts. I’ve never eaten a milkshake quite like that; my favorites are Sonic.

      these types of milkshakes are such a good time! So many varieties but I always go for the chocolate ones. 🙂

    Lately I’ve been enjoying an egg white scramble with veggies and a banana for breakfast before running! Those milkshakes do look intriguing, but I’ve never had one!

    Have you had the Ezekial english muffins? I just bought them for the first time and they are SO thick, hearty, and nutritious. I have been having them with lunch or dinner to add some healthy carbs. For me, breakfast has been a Quest bar and blueberries or large apple slices. I have oddly been loving the throwback flavors… peanutbutter, pb&j and chocolate chunk.

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles December 6, 2017, 1:47 pm

      Yes! I love everything Ezekiel! I always have the bread and the rolls in the house but lately I really like the Thomas’ English muffins again. I actually bought a few quest bars today for the first time in a really long time – I like to have one in my bag when I travel.

    I had pizza last night and it was delicious! That milkshake looks amazing! If I were to order one, I think I would have to split it with someone since they’re so sweet.

  • Lisa @ Mile by Mile December 6, 2017, 6:42 pm

    Wow that milkshake looks intense! I think I could eat pizza like that every day too!

    Why don’t you drink the milkshake?

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles December 7, 2017, 5:40 am

      those shakes are all about the toppings lol. I was full by the time you can even get to the shake part!

  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets December 9, 2017, 1:59 pm

    This might be my most favorite day of your eats, and it has a little bit of everything. I love pizza. I always will, but I wouldn’t kick that brussels sprout salad out of bed either.
