Today is going to be a post of few words, and more pictures. You know what they say, “Open your mouth only if what you’re about to say is more beautiful than silence.” I’m not sure if “they” say it, but I’m pretty sure I couldn’t come up with words more beautiful than photos of food, amiright?
So today I’m settling for a photo dump of all my eats recently. I’m trying so, so, so hard to turn down dinner invitations and happy hours (but you’ll also notice I’m making no qualms about going out to lunch. Shut up about it). That’s not to say I’m not going out at all but my wallet wasn’t too happy with the amount I was going out to eat and drink during the week as of late. But hey, my workout game has been on point so I’m not crying about it.
Easily digestable lunch before a rough sculpt class. Product 19 with honey and sliced bananas (went back for another half a bowl so the leftover milk wouldn’t go to waste — I am a steward of the earth)
Protein-packed snacks getting me through to my next meal
I took myself on a lunch date and ate this croque monsieur at my favorite french cafe. It was a fun date full of pleasant conversation. Just kidding.
Turkey chili and a fresh mini baguette from Plum Market
Another gross-looking but amazing dinner: Morningstar black bean patty mixed with an avocado and salsa
When it’s too cold to go get ice cream, you make some adjustments
Potbelly tuna with alllll the veggies, extra mustard. Because toasted sandwiches immediately after a chilly Chicago run are always welcome.
Late night ugly oatmeal — but so, so good. Oats with almond milk, banana, stevia, chocolate chips and peanut butter.
BBQ salmon, roasted butternut squash with stevia and cinnamon, roasted potatoes
Taking midnight snacks to a whole other level
The heater was out at work so the company treated us to complimentary coffee. I had a tall soy salted caramel hot chocolate and it was perfect. Gone in 3 minutes.
Best thing I ate all week: Trader Joe’s bbq chicken pizza, extra bbq sauce on the side
Recently tried out Suz’s sweet potato nachos and it is seriously in the Top 5 best things I’ve ever made in my kitchen — make these!
Jeni’s Buckeye Ice Cream (pb with chocolate flakes)…because life is too short
