WIAW #2

I had so much fun sharing with you in last weeks WIAW post so I am here for round 2! Here is a look at my Tuesday eats.

I started my day with my Protein Pancake. It tastes so good that I find myself wanting to make one for every meal.

Next up was Chobani Mango yogurt. I opened it for my daughter but ended eating almost the whole thing. (Whoops)

For lunch I made a salad with apples, egg, carrots, strawberries, sunflower seeds, spinach and Annie’s dressing.

Snack time was a large apple and homemade cashew butter. Such a perfect combination!

Dinner was a taco salad with free range beef, spinach, lettuce, avocado, carrot and a side of scrambled farm fresh eggs. I topped it with plain Greek yogurt and salsa. It was very satisfying.

And dessert was a chocolate covered marshmallow. I like to keep them in the freezer and then they do not melt in your hands. Yum!

That is a wrap for today yesterday.


Thank you Jenn for hosting WIAW. Be sure to head over to her site for lots more.

QUESTION:

Do you eat dessert after dinner?

What is your favorite?

I usually always crave something sweet and I think it tastes better if it comes out of the freezer. See you next time.

What I ate Wednesday

I am excited to share with you my first WIAW! I love to see what other people are eating for ideas and inspiration. I hope that I can do the same for you. Here is a look at my day:

What I ate Wednesday #1

I woke up early with my little love bear z. She had her milk and I had  my favorite protein smoothie.  It was delicious and made me feel energized.

Next up I heated up a cup of chai coconut coffee while we snuggled and watched cartoons. I love the idea of having something warm after my  cold smoothie. The black thing is the Chai tea bag. Doesn’t look very good but it is.

I few hours later I was craving a little snack so I went with my favorite… almond butter and a banana. It totally hit the spot and keep me running after my two year old until lunch time.

Not quite as hungry for lunch so I had a little chicken, asparagus and yam. Another power combo and quick and easy to throw together because we had leftovers. (we love leftovers)

Dinner was chicken stir fry which is my go to dinner with a side of carrot slices.

And I always want something for dessert so I had my latest cookie ball creation.  Little z and I are obsessed so we each had 2. Recipe coming soon. Here is a different cookie ball recipe to hold you over!

Do you love almond butter and bananas as much as I do?

Quick Easy Stir Fry

Happy Monday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We had such a nice weekend…lots of family time and a little time at the beach. The little Z and I stayed cozy on shore but notice our wet dog who was not afraid of the cold water in March. “crazy boy!”

For dinner on Saturday I wanted something that would be fast and healthy. I had lots of veggies and some leftover steak so I decided to make Stir Fry with extra green to honor St. Patrick.

I love everything about stir fry…especially when it comes together so quick and easy! It is a one bowl meal that we can all enjoy.
