If you’re a food blog follower, you’re probably familiar with “What I Ate Wednesday” blog posts in which the blogger posts about what they have been eating. I know I really enjoy reading those posts because it gives me an idea of how other people eat and it also sparks ideas for my own meals. I’ve decided I want to do my own version of these posts titled “A Taste of My Tuesday.” As a disclaimer, I most likely eat more than what is pictured here because I tend to take bites of things as I cook or as I’m finishing up a meal. This actually might help me clean up my own eating habits!! These posts will hopefully give you a good look into what a dietitian realistically eats as well as give you some meal/snack ideas. And it will be a whole lot easier for me to share simple recipes with you without having to make a whole blog post on it. I doubt you want to read an entire post on my roasted broccoli (okay, I am dedicating a post to my broccoli, but there are a few other recipes that are going to be included in that one).
So here’s to my first Taste of My Tuesday blog post.
Breakfast: Breakfast Cookie Dough--I know I probably shouldn’t eat the same breakfast everyday, but homegirl can’t stop! Seriously, I probably eat it 4 days a week. I just mix it up the night before and leave it in a bowl overnight in the fridge. Mash ½ a banana and add in 1 Tbsp plain protein powder, 1 Tbsp peanut flour (PB2), ½ Tbsp peanut butter and 1/3 cup oats. Then add in about 2 Tbsp milk of choice and leave uncovered in a bowl or plate. In the morning, top with chopped walnuts and dig in.
Cold brew coffee. I can’t start my day without it....
Lunch: Brussels sprouts hash with an over easy egg + handful of homemade snack mix (air popped popcorn, chex, pretzels). Saute sweet potatoes in olive oil and then add onions, garlic, and any other veggies (I added cauliflower this time, but bell peppers and mushrooms would be good) with garlic salt and any additional seasonings of choice. Add chopped ham (or any other meat) and a little bit of gouda cheese just to warm it up. Top with an over easy egg and enjoy!
Snack: I found this coconut flour cake today and wanted to give it a try. I've tried a lot of "lighter" single-serving cakes that really aren't that good. Not so with this one! I'll definitely be making it regularly! Side note: I added 1/2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips instead of 1 Tbsp regular chocolate chips.
Dinner: Homemade corn chowder + dark chocolate and a mint. It lacked a whole lot of flavor on its own, so we topped it with chopped bacon, avocado, black beans, and cilantro. Not too shabby...
Evening Snack: 3 cups of skinny pop
And that was what a normal day of food looks like for me! Like I said, I tend to grab bites of food here and there, a habit I need to work on. What have you been eating lately?
P.S. Check back later this week for a new breakfast recipe!!
