After what felt like the longest food rut ever, I finally have a few new foods to share with you. New cereal, new snacks, and a new spin on Friday’s recipe.
I had a new-to-me breakfast. It was actually too cold for me to make a smoothie. I end up shivering by the end of breakfast. Plus, I didn’t have much time before rushing out the door, I so I poured myself a bowl of Special K Protein Cereal.
This stuff actually tastes pretty good and packs in 10g protein and 3g of fiber, for only 120 calories. I had two bowls while I sipped on some coffee to warm me up.
Lunch was the usual salad-from-the-cafeteria.
I’m still not tired of this combination, so I’ve been eating it over and over. I keep telling myself I should start packing my lunch. I keep buying salads. Oh well.
When I got hungry in the afternoon, I grabbed these roasted chickpeas. Have you seen them? I found them at Kroger, so I’m thinking they’re probably in most major grocery stories now.
They’re delicious, packed protein and fiber, and have a great spicy flavor. I could munch on these all afternoon and be happy.
For dinner, I whipped up another 2-ingredient pizza crust, and this time topped it with onions, peppers, mozzarella, and an egg.
The egg thing was a bit of an experiment. I basically followed the regular recipe, but I also added some oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, and garlic. Then in the last few minutes, added an egg, and set it in the broiler. I’ve been trying to eat more eggs recently, so this was a super delicious way to get in some extra protein. This pizza crust is seriously so incredibly easy. I think I’ll be making this more and more…
