What I Ate This Week.

Last week I had a little bit of a schedule change as I had a diabetes seminar all week.  It’s always nice to have something different in your day but it led to some extra stress and business.  I’ve got a fun trip planned for this weekend so I’ve just got to make it to Saturday!!  Dinners

Monday: Crispy Avocado Tacos.  I’ll be sharing the recipe this Friday on Healthy Aperture Blog!

What I Ate This Week-5

Tuesday: Bunless Mushroom Burgers + baked sweet potato fries

What I Ate This Week-7

Wednesday: Mexican Lasagna.  Just a mix of shredded chicken, butternut squash, corn tortillas, black beans, red bell peppers, cilantro and Cabot pepper jack cheese all layered together.  Baked at 375F for ~45 minutes.

Thursday: Spring Rolls with chicken, mango, peanut soba noodles, peanuts and cilantro.  Inspired by this recipe via Love & Lemons.  Such a great summer meal.  I have a ton of rice paper wrappers leftover so I’ll definitely be making a version of these again.

What I Ate This Week-13

Friday: Chipotle! We took burrito bowls over to Andrew’s grandparent’s house and hung out with them for the evening.

What I Ate This Week-17

Saturday: Chicken Quesadilla at like 10 pm.  I ended up getting a migraine that afternoon and felt like complete junk.  I slept a lot during the afternoon and wasn’t hungry at all but then suddenly I was starving.  So I whipped up a quick quesadilla.  And then had a leftover 1 1/2 pieces of birthday cake…so it goes when you let yourself get too hungry.

What I Ate This Week-21

Sunday: Pulled Pork Tacos with Asian Kale Slaw.  The slaw was just this salad from Love & Lemons without the tofu, avocados and almonds.  I let it sit in the fridge for ~4 hours before eating.  So good.  For the pork I used this recipe via Brown Eyed Baker.  I halved the honey, increased the broth to 3/4 cup and used cherry jelly.  Can’t wait to re-purpose this pork for leftovers!

  5. Thank you for your weekly inspirational posts!
    I wanted to mention a cereal that I newly discovered (although it’s quite old, actually), and that is Weetabix. It has 1,7g sugars per serving. I usually have it with a teaspoon of peanut butter, almond milk and topped with granola, and it is SO good and filling!! You should check it out :) (I assume you have it in the US as well)

  6. Love the mexi-vietnamese theme you’ve got going on :) and your cake looks delicous! I always get shredded wheat for that reason.. It’s good mixed with berries and bananas! :)

  7. I love spring rolls and the mango in them sounds so tasty! Also, the mushroom burger looks great so will definitely try that out!

  8. I am obsessed with avocados lately!! those tacos look delicious

  9. I love that you top your smoothies with cereal girl, because I do that too and thought it was weird! :) That texture though…
    But you eat like a queen! All this food looks absolutely delicious, even the simple!
