Meal inspiration for YOU!
I wanted to share some things I’ve been eating lately that didn’t make it onto instagram! I’m currently sitting at a Starbucks that I guess is near a high school because there are so many dramatic teenagers here and I’m very nearly about to lose my mind. Gonna get out of here ASAP. High school teachers…I will pray for you! And I so hope you are getting a break this summer!! I don’t know how you do it!
Here we go with some meal inspiration for you…
My absolute favorite breakfast lately has been soaked oats. I do about 2/3 cups rolled oats + enough milk to cover them and then soak overnight in the fridge. Then I add fruit and nut butter in the morning. Currently in my fridge I have a Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter open and a peanut butter open. So both nut butters went on this.
Here’s to crummy picture quality, but another favorite has been a pile of fruit + a toaster waffle with nut butter + a homemade iced vanilla latte + an almost finished kitchen remodel…we are in the homestretch!
Another day I was meeting my little sister, Quinn, for a brunch at Tout Suite. So that morning I had a banana topped with nut butter right after I woke up to hold me until brunch time. Brunch was a latte + 2 breakfast tacos. My first breakfast taco ended up being smaller than I expected…so I had to go and order another one.
I don’t have too many pictures of my lunches. Many lunches are eaten in meal therapy with eating disorder clients and it won’t be appropriate for me to be snapping pictures of my food!
This week I prepped the mexican brunch salad for some lunches!
Oh this was THE BEST. I took an Amy’s frozen burrito, microwaved it until warmed throughout, and then I chopped it up and put it in a skillet. Then I cracked in 5 eggs and scrambled it all together for dinner for Andrew and me. Served with two salsas leftover from a Mexican restaurant + tortilla chips.
I work late Thursday nights, so a Chipotle run happened one night. I’m such a Freebirds fan now tho! If there was a Freebirds nearby I probably would’ve gone there. This bowl was still good tho.
Another night we had salad + salmon + buttered sourdough.
Another night was naan pizza with turkey, parmesan, tomatoes, pizza sauce + sautéed brussels sprouts.
salmon + roasted carrots (that got a little too roasted) + some naan pizza + half lemonade/half La Croix to drink.
One night before bed I had a Fage. My store only had 0% fat yogurt. I probably would’ve gone for the 2% version if they would’ve had it…but I enjoy both so it doesn’t really matter to me.
Yesterday afternoon I grabbed an iced latte while I worked on this post before a book club meeting.
omg. This photo is so bad ahhhh. But this was a recipe test for this recipe. The cookies came out a bit darker…I think because I used brown sugar. But I really have no idea because I didn’t go to culinary school and really have no idea what I’m doing in the kitchen. Regardless they were so good!
Chocolate covered almonds are a constant snack option in our house. So satisfying. The varieties were: milk chocolate, dark chocolate and coconut + milk chocolate.
Another before bed snack was a Noosa yogurt + chocolate chips.
lara bar + apple slices.
my favorite KIND bar.
Hope that gives you some meal inspiration! I’d love to hear about your favorite meals/snacks/desserts!
