Hello everyone! Happy Hump Day and Happy WIAW! Thanks again to Jenn for hosting the weekly WIAW party!
Here are some things I have been eating this week!
Watermelon & two dates with coconut peanut butter, I had a full blown craving for watermelon after my 8 miler on Thursday, so watermelon it was.
Almond Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats. Yummy and different combination!
Egg, almonds and raisins for a mid-morning snack.
After my sweaty Friday night workout I met up for a friend’s birthday at Reichenbach Hall in the city and got a giant Cobb Salad. It was so good: greens, beets, pickles, bleu cheese, bacon, egg and chicken. Winning big salad combo.
On my rest day on Saturday I did hit up Trader Joes for the weekly haul. I was in a Mexican mood for this week so I decided to buy this Corn & Chili Tomato-Less Salsa. I usually but the Cowboy Caviar but decided to change it up.
Here is my meal this week: Ground Turkey, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of black beans, 5 laughing cow swiss chesses, and quinoa. Simple and easy!
Here is the rest of my meal prep: roasted broccoli, roasted carrots, roasted brussel sprouts, butternut squash, hard boiled eggs and my salads with sweet potatoes for the week. It took me around 2 hours and then I was done! Saves me SOOO much time during the week and I am prepared with healthy options.
I also decided to pick up this Kashi Go Lean Crunch. I was in the mood for granola and I think this was a great alternative! I wanted to make my own granola- hopefully one day, it’s just that you need a lot of ingredients for granola which is kinda $$$.
Here I enjoyed it with Fage Greek Yogurt, a banana, and some almonds to add a fat to the meal!
I also saw Asian Pears as I walked in and had to buy one! This reminds me of a girl that I met during the days that I struggled with eating/weight. She was such a nice girl and told me about her love of Asian pears and I remembering buying them around that time. Haha so random. Anyway I love Asian Pears but they are also $$.
Post Long Run Fuel on Sunday:
Another prize: empty peanut butter jar overnight oats and a banana.
Later on Sushi, a Big Ol’ Salad with this awesome dressing!
After that I helped my Dad make some homemade meatballs and homemade sauce. I also decided to give my spiralizer a try! We didn’t use the zoodles as noodles because I just feel like you need carbs in your life- especially on Sunday, especially with homemade sauce and meatballs. The spiralizer was quite an arm workout! I want to try it out with a sweet potato!
So that was a peek into some of my tasty eats this week! Be sure to check out everyone elses WIAW posts!
I am still working on my Arctic Zero Post- will be ready soon! Stay tuned!
