Let’s take a look at what I ate on Sunday – It’s been a while since I had a full day of meals to share!
If you only knew how excited I was to think to take this early morning breakfast picture! While it used to be routine for me to remember to take food photos, it’s not anymore. I fell out of the habit, especially with breakfast!
So lucky for us (totally sarcastic tone right there), I remembered to grab my phone to take a picture of my early morning breakfast. Long time readers are aware of my two-part breakfast routine – pre and post run.
This is my usual pre-run bowl of oatmeal mixed with some frozen blueberries, cinnamon and peanut butter. I eat the same oatmeal with blueberries and peanut butter post-run, with the addition of Skoop protein powder and lately, diced apple too.
On this particular morning, I didn’t run but I always eat the same two-part breakfast anyway, a few hours apart. My stomach is a creature of habit.
Ah Red Mango, my former favorite lunch! Another habit I fell out of over the last few years was my weekend Red Mango parfait. Frozen yogurt, especially Red Mango, was the best lunch ever in my eyes for so long! Until it just wasn’t.
A few weeks ago I had a Red mango parfait but I didn’t love it as much as I once did which definitely made me sad. I think I wrote about it– hold on–yes, here’s the post.
On Sunday while shopping the mall, I was in the mood for my parfait so I gave it another go. This time for a change, I swapped out the blueberries for sliced bananas and it was the greatest decision ever.
Layered between the original yogurt was strawberries, bananas, dark chocolate chips, and Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola. < – You like how I know what type of granola Red Mango uses?!
Unpictured are the baby carrots with Trader Joe’s chunky guacamole that I snacked on in the afternoon before making dinner. Whenever that chunky guacamole is in the house, I end up snacking.
This was the night that I experimented with the new Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi! After testing out the cook-the-gnocchi-in-a-pan method to see that it worked out well, I was like – okay, now what? I was not in the mood for adding a marinara sauce so I threw my stir fry vegetables into the pan along with chick peas and Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki. DINNER.
Since Sunday I did cook the cauliflower gnocchi again in a marinara sauce – it’s very good! I still say the cauliflower gnocchi has no flavor but good texture so it just takes on the flavors of whatever you cook with it.
As basic as it gets at night when I have dessert at home….

Anyone try the Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi since we last spoke about it?
What used to be your favorite lunch and now you rarely eat it?
