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.
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.
Saturday: We went to a wedding for some family friends! BBQ (and wedding cake) for everybody!
Sunday: Chicken & Dumplings (…if you click that link, prepare yourself for “i’m-just-starting-a-food-blog” pictures.)
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 all.day.long. Love this restaurant. So gorgeous and airy and open. Plus, there was a English Bulldog puppy running around.
I needed to buy a Chipotle gift card for a wedding gift sooo I of course had to get lunch too.
Quesadillas + steamed zucchini.
It’s officially SMOOTHIE WEATHER!
This was a banana oat smoothie + granola…recipe here.
a smooshed graham cracker + almond butter sandwich.
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).
