Let’s talk food this week.
And how I’m up to my elbows in Perkins mammoth muffins.
I hate to love those things.
Actually, that’s a lie.
I wish I hated to love those things.
I simply love them.
In terms of loving anything inanimate, of course.
I had a strawberry cream one Saturday that kind of blew my mind. Gah!
The remaining ones (which are much fewer than I originally anticipated) are tucked away in the freezer for this weekend and (hopefully) next weekend. Now I’m back to normal eating.
I figured I’d use today to share what we’re doing this week.
I always always always start my morning with a green monster. Protein, greens powder, chia, a little avocado, a dab of coconut oil, spinach, almond milk, and ice.
For my “second” breakfast this week I’m having two boiled eggs. Bor-ing. Last week I had a piece of toast with a dab of coconut oil and scrambled egg whites which I would have preferred, but this was faster.
Lunch this week is Greek salad with homemade dressing. So so good! I always enjoy Greek salad but rarely make it myself. P made some over Memorial Day, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
Instead of adding some sort of green salad base, I ditched that and doubled the cucumber and tomatoes. I also used fresh basil from my aerogarden!
Snacks are chopped carrots and celery with natural peanut butter and honey.
Dinner is where things have the potential to fall apart. Not because of eating unhealthy usually, but because of too much snacking before!
Snacking often involves a spoon and a heaping tablespoon of natural peanut butter. Real life.
This week we’re having breakfast for dinner- scrambled egg whites with one whole egg, and veggies for me (and probably a biscuit with a little white gravy because I’m weak and can’t resist when I make it for Will).
We’re also having spicy black bean and potato burritos.
Finally, we’re making brown rice bowls the last part of week. I cook some meat with salsa in the crockpot for Will. We top our rice with corn, black beans, tomatoes, jalapeños, and Greek yogurt. Will also adds in his salsa chicken and cheese.
I end every night with plain Greek yogurt, stevia, and PB2. If I’ve had a particularly good day of eating, I’ll have my yogurt with a little honey and brown sugar instead.
And there you have it! A week of eating with the B-Love family.
Check in tomorrow!
