What's uppp it'sss Thursday night! Taco night in this casa! As I've mentioned, I went through a total food-creativity slump end of Dec/beginning of Jan that I recently pulled myself out of in a major way. Things are getting allll creative up in here lately and it's been fun! That being said, the creativity is mainly taking place during dinner. I'm not much of a lunch gal... ah, let me re-phrase that - lunch is my dream on days off, at the beach, on vacation, etc. Lunch at work - meh. I'm trying to mix things up a bit and if I force myself to start including more "bits & bites" posts, it'll make me expand outside of my hard-boiled egg, fruit, popcorn lunches. At least, I'll try. Here are some bits & bites over the past few weeks!
This was a simple dinner the other night: Tuna melt on a brown rice wrap, roasted asparagus, & roasted parsnip baked "fries".
Breakfast: organic instant oatmeal made on the stove top with almond milk, peanut butter, dried cranberries, and topped with coconut and cacao nibs. (I love putting peanut butter in my oatmeal!)
Dinner: Pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes, and spinach salad with roasted beats, cranberries, feta, and evoo. (heavenly)
Dinner: Ian's gluten-free fish sticks, roasted asparagus, roasted potatoes. (a quick staple)
This is what I eat for lunch wayyy too much (or is it too much? does it matter? I digress.) Anyway, 2 HB eggs, watermelons, pineapples, and skinny pop. Love.
Dinner: Lemon/Herb cod, roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon, cayenne, salt, evoo, and roasted asparagus. (I guess I eat a lot of asparagus, huh?)
Dinner: Homemade turkey burger (organic ground turkey, dijon mustard, chopped onion, garlic powder, evoo, salt, feta) with raosted sweet potato baked "fries" and avo/lime mash. Deeeeelish.
Saturday lunch: fried egg and cheese on an organic rice cake with watermelon/pineapple. (oh, and that gross green drink that tasted like romaine lettuce - blech)
Dinner: Baked piccata-style chicken breast with artichokes, olives, capers, lemon, etc. and quinoa with parmesan stirred in.
Lunch: Traded in my fruit for a bowl of tomato/basil soup because it's EFFING FREEZING!
Dinner: Sauteed sweet potato "swoodles!" with brown butter, sage, red onion, pecans, parmesan and shrimp! Yum!
Lunch: I know this looks odd, but, it's my effort to get away from my usual. Rice cake with hummus and pumpkin seeds with organic beef jerky. This was actually so friggin delish and really high in protein which was the goal!
Ok question time: Do you have lunch staples? Are you a habitual eater? I am, I always have been - ever since I was a little kid. How do you pull yourself out of a food slump or do you even care?
Have a fabbbbulous night!
