Good morning and happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a productive first week of the new year!
I'm back today with the 11th edition of "Bites & Bites". I like sharing these posts as I hope they provide some healthier meal ideas for you all. I also really like to go back through the old posts to see what I was into during past seasons or phases. They always give me some solid reminders of healthy eats that I can add back into my routine.
Obviously, my diet the last month or so included more 'treats' than normal. I shared most of those delectable little bites on my instagram account. Today, however, I have some proof of the "balance" I maintained throughout the holiday season. Note: Bits & Bites photos are never pretty. They are usually quick snaps right before I stuff my face. Let's get to it, shall we?
Saturday Lunch: Chickpeas, tomatoes, parsley, feta, evoo, balsamic vinegar, salt & crushed red pepper. I made this one Saturday afternoon for lunch for Rob and me. I think we had dinner plans that night and I wanted to make sure we had something hearty but, light for lunch.
Lunch: Miso and udon noodle soup bowl, simple green salad, and popcorn.
Dinner: Quinoa made with peppers and onions, topped with grilled chicken and sriracha.
Sunday night dinner: Barilla protein plus pasta served scampi style with pea pods and shrimp.
Dinner: Fish stick tacos and roasted sweet potatoes.
Lunch: Udon soup noodle bowl and grapefruit.
Lunch: Salad with peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, turkey, a little provolone with balsamic vinegar and evoo.
Lunch: Whole Foods Taco salad bar. I chose romaine, salsa, jalapeños, pulled chicken, a sprinkle of quinoa, a sprinkle of cheese, and a squeeze of lime.
Dinner: Two buffalo chicken mini meatloafs, roasted sweet potatoes, and simple salad.
Lunch: Quinoa bake made with asparagus, peppers, and cheddar plus a "kitchen sink" salad.
Do you go through phases with foods/meals?
Do you meal prep?
Have a great rest of your week! xo
