So let’s get into what I ate yesterday, August 21, 2018.
What I Ate Today
If you read my most recent WIA post, you know that I’ve been on a Perfectbar kick. I have them first thing in the morning before my workout. Today was Blueberry Cashew! And of course, I always drink coffee in the morning! One cup a day!
Around 10:30am, I was starting to cook and didn’t really want to stop to make breakfast, so I ate the three leftover Spinach Donuts from Luca’s breakfast, dipped in almond butter! Every meal doesn’t have to be incredible, remember that!
Easy, peasy lunch – chicken sausage, sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts, seasoned with garlic powder, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper. Topped with avocado! I ate it so quickly, I forgot to take a photo, so here is portion 2 for tomorrow!
I steamed some purple sweet potato earlier in the day for Luca, and so for lunch, I had about a cup of sweet potato dipped in this amazing eggplant dip I recently found at Whole Foods! It’s Luca-friendly, too – sometimes I serve it to him on a preloaded spoon and he loves it!
My original meal plan intentions were to make the Thai Chia Fish Cakes with Bok Choy in Coconut-Ginger Broth from my new cookbook, but by the time I got to dinnertime, I was exhausted from cooking SIX meals that day, so I just winged it – I made halibut in a coconut-ginger broth with bok choy and served it over quinoa! It was actually OUTSTANDING, I’m definitely making this again! Thanks to my cookbook for the inspiration!
I also had 1.5 glasses of wine (really loving Francis Coppola’s Pinot Noir these days.)
I was craving something savory, so I had about a serving and a half of Veggie Stix. I actually like the Whole Foods 365 brand better, but I forgot to pick them up this past weekend on my grocery shop, so they carry these at my local grocery store and these are my second favorite!
And that’s what I ate yesterday, August 21st! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see these every Wednesday, if they’re helpful for those of you looking for daily eats inspiration!
