I mentioned in last week’s post that I’m trying to focus on balance over the holiday season. For me, in terms of food, that means enjoying the things I love, squeezing in veggies where I can, and passing on the things I don’t love. I’ve been trying to keep sweet treats to once a day (which is actually difficult when you work in an office) and cutting out boredom-snacking. My meals aren’t “perfect” though. Some days, I count cheese as dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s what Sunday looked like:

breakfast yogurt and grain free granolaI’ve been sticking with my standard Greek yogurt + berries + granola. Specifically, this was the “cherry berry” blend from Trader Joe’s, topped with this grain free granola.

After breakfast I went to gymnastics for a nice workout and by the time I came home, it was almost 2:00 and I was ravenous. I wanted something quick, filling, and healthy. Freezer meals to the rescue!

lunch salad and ravioli

I had a bag of cheese ravioli leftover from a casserole recipe so I boiled the rest of it. I picked it up from Kroger on a whim but I ended up really liking it. It had a nice flavor for a frozen ravioli! The salad was kale + the Trader Joe’s chopped veggies mix, topped with a homemade garlic tahini dressing.

The afternoon flew by and after heading to church, I went to a friends house for our monthly cooking club. Although, as I mentioned on Sunday, this cooking club was really more of a wine night. Dinner consisted of wine, cheese, & crackers.

I planned on eating a “real” dinner when I got home but I ended up feeling pretty full after all the cheese and crackers! So rather than a real dinner, I had a brownie. That counts, right?

almond flour browniesI can’t wait to share the recipe with you all! You’ll never guess the secret ingredient! (Nope, it’s not black beans!)
