Bits & Bites #9

Hi everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! It was a hot hot hot one here in the Northeast and I took full advantage of it. I will hang on to every last thread of summer until well into October, if possible. My dad has to pull his boat out of the water a little early this year and since this weekend was actually FREE of commitments, I ended up spending both days with my family on the boat. Both days were really relaxing. The ocean water was pretty warm so I tried to get in as much as possible. (FYI "warm" in the Northeast means 68 degrees)

Moving on, I promised to bring back my "Bits & Bites" game to provide you with a snapshot into my little eating world. Here's what I've been into for the last couple of weeks. I hope you all have an awesome week!

Dinner: Fried egg on pesto zoodles.

Dinner: Grilled chicken with buffalo sauce and quinoa with parsley, red onion, tomatoes, and cheese.

Lunch: Fried eggs on corn tortillas, hot sauce, and a teeny bit of cheese.

I think this was a dinner and I had leftovers for lunch: Chicken salad made with grapes, crushed almonds, dill, a little red onion, capers, a little organic mayo and dijon mustard served with blanched green beans and almonds.

Dinner: Fish tacos made with Ian's fish sticks, lettuce, tomatoes, and hot sauce on corn tortillas.

Weekend breakfast: Half english muffin with two fried eggs and watermelon. Yummmm.

Meal Prep for Dinners and Lunches: "Healthy Taco Casserole" made with organic ground chicken, quinoa, taco seasoning and the tiniest bit of cheese. Throughout the week, I topped it with lettuce, tomatoes, hot sauce etc.

Lunch: Random Whole Foods "burrito bowl". I just asked for lettuce, pulled chicken, guac, salsa, roasted veggies, and a little cheese. (I dont do beans and I didn't get a carb).

Dinner: I went back to Babbo with the girls on Thursday night and tried a new pasta dish. My favorites from there are the carbonara and the bolognese, however, this linguine with mussels was quite tasty.

Dinner: Yesterday afternoon when I got back from the South Shore, I power cleaned my entire condo from top to bottom, did two loads of laundry, took care of my garden, and then did a workout with Rob (50 squats, 800m run, 40 push ups, 800m run, 30 sit-ups, 800 meter run, 20 plank jacks, 800 meter run, 10 pistols, 800m run) and then I made that bowl of awesomeness above for fuel! Barilla protein plus pasta, diced tomatoes, garlic, zucchini, crushed red pepper, and parmesan. Mmm.

Have a great one! xo
