Hello party people! Another round of What I Ate Wednesday is upon us! I have been a veggie monster lately, so the extra vegetable addition this April has been no problemo
Breakfast was a new little creation I tried out using my coconut flour. Coconut Oatmeal.
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup pumpkin + 1/4 cup mashed banana
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1 cup water or milk alternative
- 1/2 teaspoon stevia + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- topped with Katie’s protein frosting
I combined the first 3 ingredients with the water and microwaved for 3 minutes. Then I added the mashed banana and pumpkin and egg whites and microwaved that for about 5 minutes. I then mixed it up and added the stevia and vanilla, put it in a bowl and topped with protein frosting. It was so good. Seriously, coconut flour in oats tastes like cake batter.
Lunch was a new little adventure: roasted broccoli, cauliflower and tempeh roasted in the oven with coconut oil, nutritional yeast, and fresh dill. Tempeh is a new to me protein and I actually really liked it! It tastes sort of nutty or something. Nothing like tofu, which is good because I hate tofu. And I now love fresh dill. I had never used it before for some odd reason, and I am now convinced it is the best herb ever. Delicious.
After lunch I had a hair appointment, so I literally rushed out the door and didn’t get back until later and forgot to bring a snack. I got home and whipped up a quick smoothie and drank that up fast, so didn’t picture it. It was just made with almond milk, vanilla vega protein, kale, strawberries, and ice.
For Dinner I had a [recycled picture] meal of roasted kabocha squash with a side of coconut butter. Kabocha is the best. If you haven’t tried it go to your super market and search for it. I swear it will be the best decision ever.
Today’s meals were certainly veggielicous. Vegetables at every meal! Coolness.
Now to spend the remainder of the night catching up with my book and heading to bed.
What’s the best thing you ate today?
