Hi all! I’ve been trying to get in big salads for lunches lately. For me it’s a good way to be sure I at least get one veggie heavy meal in for the day. Lately dinners tend to be more focused on delicious food rather than veggies.
Monday: King Ranch Chicken + salad. Andrew’s mom makes the most delicious King Ranch Chicken. Mine wasn’t exactly the most delicious, but there was cheese so it can’t really be bad. I based mine off this Eating Well recipe. I used greek yogurt for the sour cream and left off the black olives. Andrew and I both agreed it was a little too Mexican tasting for King Ranch Chicken. Next time I’ll leave out the chili powder.
Tuesday: Out to eat at Heights General Store for a Culinary Professionals Meeting. The menu was already planned for us and it was delicious. We started off with salads. Then the main course was crispy fried chicken + delicious green beans + creamy mac n’ cheese. I really loved this restaurant…food, atmosphere and owner. Can’t wait to go back and try some of the other dishes.
Wednesday: Cauliflower soup + crispy chickpeas. It looks good, huh? It was so gross. I can’t even believe Andrew and I kept eating it. We did serve it with this cornbread…it was the one redeeming factor in the meal.
Thursday: Thick slices of cornbread topped with hummus, roasted tomatoes, soft scrambled eggs, arugula and feta. Super simple, but so good.
Friday: Andrew’s parents came over for dinner and I made How Sweet Eats Thai Chicken Enchiladas (again…love those things).
Saturday: After pancakes for breakfast and tacos for lunch, a big salad was in order for dinner.
Cornbread croutons, black beans, strawberries, feta over arugula.
Sunday: Omelet-Quesadilla. Still eating this meal so much…can’t get enough.
Saturday taco lunch with Andrew at Tacos-a-go-go. I got the barbacoa + a cup of black bean soup. YUM.
Omelet + leftover foccacia.
Sunday lunch at Logan’s with my family after church.
A scramble of sorts. Shredded chicken + black beans + cherry tomatoes + arugula + cheddar cheese + chunks of cornbread. All cooked together in a pan over medium-high heat until everything was hot.
Salad + leftover king ranch chicken.
Again…salad + king ranch chicken.
protein shake + leftover pancake with almond butter (unpictured).
smoothie + cereal.
chocolate protein powder smoothie + cereal (again).
egg sandwich + banana
cold banana oatmeal + chia seeds + blueberry.
Pancakes!!! Recipe will be posted Monday! Toppings were involved.
these cookies that I can’t wait to tell you all about.
coconut water after hot yoga. not a fan of the coconut water taste, but electrolytes and whatnot are good to keep me from passing out after the sweat sesh.
1000 rep workout via Peanut Butter Fingers. Love this workout. Always takes me just over an hour to finish it and my whole body is always shaky.
And a Maggie picture because I’m in love. She’s thinking, “don’t leave us for Brazil, Dad.” Andrew is out of the country for work. I’ve been filling my schedule with time with friends and sisters to help from getting too lonely. Right now my sisters are over and we’re watching She’s the Man (our movie)…on a work night. It’s gonna be an early morning. Totally worth it.
