As I promised, I have decided to expand my blog a little and let you guys know more about me instead of just recipes. I chose my “What I Ate Wednesday” on a day that I remembered to take pictures of all my food. This was last Thursday!
Don’t you ever wake up and just crave certain things? Things that aren’t “breakfasty-ish”? Yeah, well that happened. Things got creative….
I made snickerdoodle overnight oats but wasn’t really feeling my usually fruity topping. So I looked in the freezer and found some nilla bean ice cream and fireworks went off in my head. I threw in a fiber one cinnamon coffee cake square for more cinnamon goodness and lots of creamy peanut butter. I can’t describe to you how satisfying this was…..
After a dip in my pool that finally is warm enough to go in, I made some lunch. Now I wasn’t feeling the classic wrap or sandwich so I cooked a nice warm meal.
I baked some sweet potato cubes that I seasoned with paprika and garlic powder.
Then sautéed some veggies in olive oil and Mr.s Dash (my go-to seasoning)
and some salmon with leftover beans I spotted in the fridge. Beans are yum.
My hunger cues have been really weird lately, I was actually really hungry a few hours later so I made a fruity smoothie. It had a peach, frozen strawberries and bloobs, greek yogurt, milk and chia seeds! Came out a lot thicker than I thought. Bailey was definitely curious about it.
My parents made a last minute decision that they wanted to go out for dinner at this local Mexican restaurant. I don’t always go with them because they seriously go every single week and it can get old, but I went because I wanted to get out and not be alone.
I got some shrimp tacos and asked for a side of avocado because avocado is life and must be on my tacos. It did not take me long to finish these. 🙂
I used to not eat night snacks after going out because it’s usually later and I felt like I didn’t need to. But that’s silly and timing shouldn’t be an indicator. I actually feel very “off” if I don’t have something before bed. So I decided on some chocolate peanut butter balls that I had froze earlier that day (from Jane’s blog) and Unreal peanut butter cups.
What’s your favorite way to eat avocado?
