So I suck at doing WIAW, I can never remember to take that many consecutive pictures of my food. But I love reading other peoples and getting ideas. So I figured I would post some of the snacks, meals, and deliciousness I’ve had in the past week or so. These are just highlights, not everything I’ve had in a week. Also I have a lot of people ask me what I do for my workouts so I figured I would draft my workouts for the week to share with you guys.
Mornings are a mix of overnight oats (check out my recipe) and scrambled eggs with cheddar and salsa.
In case you missed my epic waffles from a couple weeks ago on insta, I must share another pic and tell you to google liege waffles (authentic Belgian waffles) and GO MAKE THEM! Seriously life changing: made from dough instead of batter.
For lunch I’ve been on a salad kick lately- everyone was digging this salad pic on instagram which was cool because it was actually a salad I made for my close friend that just had a baby last week. (Don’t worry I also brought some gooey warm chicken and stuffing comfort food but forgot to take a pic). Parsnip fries are making a great side to salads and go well on top of them too!
Some snacks I’ve been enjoying lately are Nourish snacks and hummus with carrot sticks. The Eat Well Embrace Life Hummus (white bean) is amazinggggg! I think I ate half of it in one sitting, can’t wait to try more flavors!
Last week for dinner we enjoyed 2 Blue Apron Meals: A unique but delicious freekah salad complete with hazelnuts, shaved parm, apples, shaved Brussels. And a coconut curry shrimp soup that was also fantastic. I really really love all the Blue Apron meals I’ve had (check out my review here) but it really is a little too pricey. Next month the hubs and I are starting a new budget and I’m trying to make it stricter on food (both eating out and groceries) so these meals probably won’t be fitting into my plan without a discount coupon.
**Planning a schedule out for the week helps me stay on track, especially if I know I’ll be traveling.
