Holy moly! I can’t believe we are already on week #40 of What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) over here at My Food ‘N’ Fitness Diaries!
Yesterday was a really good day of eats. The last few weeks my appetite was just “off”, so it’s been nice to have it back this week. I found myself feeling adventurous in the kitchen yesterday, so I set out to find some new-to-me recipes. The results were incredible!
Nothing new here, but I do have to say that my overnight oats were extra good yesterday. All of the ingredients just complemented one another so well.
Into my almost empty nut butter jar went:
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon chia seed
I set it in the fridge over night and added a few drops of NuNaturals Vanilla Liquid Stevia and a handful of blueberries to it in the morning.
mid morning snack
I polished off the last of our Coconut Banana Blueberry Muffins and topped it with about a tablespoon of Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter. Once again, I just loooove this stuff!
Lunch totally satisfied the craving I have been having for weeks now. Ever since the temperature has been warmer, I have been craving a turkey sandwich with fresh veggies and avocado on it like no other. I finally remembered to pick up some turkey at the store on Monday and put it to use to make an amazing sandwich for lunch yesterday. On a toasted whole wheat english muffin, I added brown spicy mustard, turkey, avocado, spinach, and a slice of tomato. Ohhh man, SO GOOD! I also had some baby carrots on the side.
I was feeling something more after this, so I dug into the bag of Trader Joe’s dried green beans that Chelsey sent me. I was hesitant when I first tried these the other day, but now I can’t keep my hands out of the bag! These things are seriously so good.
mid afternoon snack
Yesterday morning I made a batch of Chelsey’s Almond Flour Banana Blueberry Muffins to take along with us on our camping trip this weekend. Of course I had to try one of these babies out. Verdict? Amazing! Add some almond butter on there too, and it’s even better. (I added some after I snapped the photo.) I also had a few big gulps of milk. Yep, right out of the gallon. Don’t judge.
I decided as I was meal planning for the week that I wanted to include Courtney’s Cheesy Crab & Shrimp Shells to the menu. We had it last night, and it was definitely a winner in the Wiseman household. DELICIOUS! I had the below bowl plus another bowl that was about half full.
I’ve really been wanting to try this banana soft serve I’ve been seeing around the blog world, but I always forget about it when the time comes. Last night I finally put one of my frozen bananas to use!
In my food processor I added:
1 frozen ripe banana
scoop of peanut butter
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
Blend it together until it gets to be a creamy consistency and DIG IN! You can get pretty creative and add other stuff into it too. Wow – I have a feeling this is going to be a regular thing around here this summer!
