Why hello there Wednesday, we meet again. Time for the usual foodie fun.
I tried to mix things up more this week, but I’m such a creature of habit I can’t help myself from returning from the old favorites.
My day started off bright and early with a not so new workout, spin class. Even though I go twice a week, I love that each class is different from the last. Intervals are the best.
This morning I realized just how cold it has gotten over here now, ick. I guess that just means I get to load up on coffee and my favorite teas. Fine by me.
I returned from spin starving so breakfast was had as soon as I walked in the door.
Pumpkin oat bran always tastes amazing in the morning, plus it’s ready as soon as I’m home….so they’re back once again.
Hey, if it works it works.
Since I dropped my bottle of molasses over the weekend, I made my way over to the store bright and early to get there before the crazy later morning crowds arrive. And made sure to stop for coffee as well!
It was perfect timing, the store just happened to be dead. I picked up a few necessities and came home to get my baking on.
I also picked up 5 kabocha squash I found at the store. They re-stocked so that was a pretty pleasant surprise.
Yep, I’m cool like that.
I got home and did a little work before breaking into my next meal.
I decided I wanted to make some sort of pizza, but didn’t have any tortillas or crust. Easy enough to fix.
I simply made my own from 2 tablespoons ground flax, 1 tablespoon coconut flour and 1 egg, which I fried up in a smidgen of coconut oil.
Topped with tomato paste, spinach, roasted brussels and goat cheese. Baked in the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese was melted.
For last minute making, it was delicious.
Later, I whipped up a snack…
Even though I was freezing after it was well worth the pain. I realized I have an absurd amount of canned pumpkin and coconut milk, so I had to get to work on using those up.
I had some time to kill, so I quickly met a friend for coffee at Starbucks. Double coffee day don’t mind if I do.
When I got home, I wanted something fast. This meal came together in no time.
Socca, coconut oil, nutritional yeast, broccoli slaw, fresh dill, crushed red pepper and avocado.
I’m socca-obsessed these days.
Clearly, I had a burning issue in the kitchen tonight. Oops. I always forget that I have things on the stove or in the oven and leave them in too long.
This meal was nothing to rave about, but it did the trick.
I’m writing this after dinner, but I already know what I’ll be snacking on later…the usual
Evening Snack -
Protein muffin, coconut cream, and un-pictured peanut flour paste (it was far too ugly to photograph).
Now, to catch up on Dexter from Sunday with a cup of one of my new favorites; cocomint tea.
What are some weird food combos you love?
What’s your favorite tea?
Enjoy your Wednesday!
