Today is going to be a quick on as we are running late and heading to the gym soon. Good thing it’s Wednesday and posting pictures of my eats from a day shouldn’t be all to time consuming 🙂
Of coarse a huge thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for organizing another wonderful What I Ate Wednesday!
This month she’s talking about sensible snacking and I’ve got a great snack recipe for you guys! Well, to me it’s on of my favorite snack recipes but that’s just my opinion. It is definitely a healthier one though!
I started my day with apple cider vinegar followed by two cups of coffee with coconut milk and cinnamon. Yum! Then when The Love Nugget woke up an hour later, we enjoyed breakfast.
I also enjoyed a slice of this bread,
Definitely check out the recipe that I posted yesterday, it’s so good!
Off to the gym we went and immediately after we headed to the Library for story time. So along the way I snacked on a few apple slices then on the way home one of these,
So good! Stay tuned for a review coming soon!
Lunch was an un-pictured salad with grilled chicken roasted beets, avocado and sunflower seeds. Yum!
Also enjoyed some grapes on the side. Organic Red Grapes are finally at Costco, yay!
After lunch we put together a meal for a friend who just had a baby. I made this dish from Iowa Girl Eats along with some Protein Bites and a salad.
When we got home from running errands, I had a yummy snack to hold me over until dinner.
- 2 cups roasted sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 - 2 tbsp. walnut oil
- In a food processor grind sunflower seeds until finely chopped.
- Slowly add in honey and oil and continue processing until a smooth creamy butter forms. This may take awhile but it will eventually turn into a creamy, tasty sunflower seed butter! Add more oil if it doesn't mix well enough and more honey if you want it sweeter 🙂
Love the combo of carrots with sunflower seed butter and it’s so easy to make!
Dinner was a quick and easy dish that we threw together.
Organic chicken thighs cooked in coconut oil with cumin, garlic, onions, sea salt and chili powder served over romaine lettuce and topped with mashed avocado and tomatoes. The hubby and love nugget had it in tortillas as tacos but it was good as a salad!
I ended my evening with a few slices of frozen bananas.
Seriously love frozen bananas right now! I need to freeze some of my red grapes as those too are an awesome frozen snack to have. Yum!
Oh, and in case you didn’t know, it’s National Running Day! I may not run as much as I used to but I do still enjoy it and hope to find some time to get in a quick one today before spin!
