WIAW: Week Off Eats!

Happy WIAW everyone!

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

I have the week off from school so I am changing things up this week with more meals out, leftovers, and ingredient prep rather than meal prep, since I have more time to be a little creative!

Breakfasts

I found these awesome frozen whole green figs at Trader Joe’s so I made a smoothie! 3 frozen figs, 1/2 cup rolled oats, almond butter, chia seed, Fage Greek Yogurt and milk topped with some crunchy Kashi Go Lean! SO delicious!

I spotted these Protein Kodiak Cakes at Target yesterday and decided to try them out! They have 14 g of protein but when you add milk and an egg you get 21g of protein! I decided to make them after my 8 miler this morning with milk, an egg and a banana and drizzled them with agave nectar and almond butter. They were SO good and I am full! I never eat pancakes because I feel like I eat them and I am hungry two seconds later. These are going to be a new staple for me (well probably on the weekends, too much work during the week)! Mmmm I could do banana and chocolate chips, or walnuts, or strawberry, mmm the possibilities are endless!

Lunches

Lunch out with mom at my favorite spot: The Rolling Pin

Butternut Squash Soup, Mesclun Salad with Roasted Shallots, Goat Cheese and a Sherry Vinaigrette, with a scoop of herb roasted chicken salad. The soup comes with a biscuit but I asked for their amazing sweet potato salad instead! SO good!

This was my meal prep (ground turkey) along with roasted veggies, so I can be a little creative in the kitchen this week!

Hope you are all staying warm if you are here in the Northeast! It’s 24 degrees right now and that feels warm!!
