What I Ate Monday
Happy Wednesday! If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know what that means: What I Ate Wednesday! This week, I’m sharing all the meals I ate on Monday! I hope it gives you some ideas and inspiration for easy vegetarian meals. Let’s dive right into breakfast:
Ice cream for breakfast is a regular occurrence around here… Ok not really. This is just my standard banana smoothie recipe for breakfast, topped with a little extra peanut butter.
Speaking of food-that-looks-like-dessert-but-is-actually-really-healthy… my morning snack involved a couple of these gorgeous treats:
I packed a couple of these mini protein donuts to keep me full through lunch. These are like little cinnamon sugar donuts. So yummy! (If you don’t have a donut pan, that’s no problem! You can make this recipe in a mini muffin pan instead.)
My friend and I walked over to a different cafeteria for lunch (our office has 4 cafeterias!) and the one we went to has a pretty good taco/burrito bar so naturally, I had to get a burrito bowl.
This one had brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, corn salsa, onions, cilantro, tomatillo salsa and hot salsa. Clearly, I love salsa. It was delicious.
Around 4:00, I had a few handfuls of these Somersaults.
These are so addicting, you should be impressed that this bag lasted me a whole week. I kept it hidden in my desk drawer so I wouldn’t be staring at it all the time. Otherwise it certainly wouldn’t have lasted that long.
When I got home from work, I went for a quick run with my friend Carin. One I got back, I popped dinner in the oven and hopped in the shower while dinner roasted. I make this red potato, chickpea, & asparagus recipe all the time because it’s one of Alex’s favorites. (Well, if we’re being honest, I love it too.)
It’s so simple but the dill + lemon is delicious.
After dinner I had a piece of dark chocolate from the stash Alex gave me for Valentine’s day. That man knows that I’m basic and predictable. Chocolate wins every time.
