What I Ate This Week

So this week was just weird.  I couldn’t really get in the groove of things.  Getting back into town on Sunday and starting a new job made it hard for me to get into my normal schedule.  I meal planned and grocery shopped on Sunday.  But then throughout the week…I didn’t make any of the meals I was planning to make, except for a smoked salmon pizza.  I just didn’t feel like cooking…which makes nutritious eating difficult. 

DinnersMonday: Breakfast Taco Bar. 

I just scrambled up some black beans with eggs and served them with some Cabot sharp cheddar + avocado slices.

Tuesday: Out to eat with some girlfriends at Pradaria Steaks & Churrascaria!  We got a crazy awesome Groupon and got our meal for like a 1/4 of the original price.  Such a fun random Tuesday night.

Wednesday: BBQ Chicken Sandwiches on Whole Wheat English Muffins.  Served with sweet potato fries and a salad with cucumber + tomato + avocado + feta + red wine vinegar + salt/pepper.

Thursday: Smoked Salmon Pizza.  Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Crust layered with pesto, shredded mozzarella, crumbled feta, caramelized onions + garlic, tomatoes & smoked salmon.  This was a little on the salty side.  I didn’t add any salt, but the smoked salmon and feta are such salty ingredients.

Thursday I planned an at-home date night for Andrew and I.  We ate this pizza and brownies and watched Wolf of Wall Street.  Geez that is the longest movie ever.

Friday: Pizza + Salad.  Pizza two days in a row…that is what happens with a lack of meal plan following.

Lunch out with a new friend at Cafe Brasil.  I got the tamales: 1 chicken & 1 butternut + poblano.  LOVED the butternut squash one.  I’m not a big butternut squash fan but if it’s stuffed inside a tamale I could eat it  Love this restaurant.  So gorgeous and airy and open.  Plus, there was a English Bulldog puppy running around.

For our date night, I made tofu brownies from Chocolate Covered Katie.  I halved the sugar and added pumpkin in place of applesauce.

I felt like I needed to switch up my workouts, so I did these strength workouts all week (2 upper body + 2 lower body workout).  Then I threw in my own cardio (stairstepper, elliptical, treadmill incline walking).
