Even though I stopped taking photos of everything I eat, I still find myself snapping pics of my food. I guess it’s more ingrained in me than I thought. Apparently, 5+ years of documenting my eats will do that! Anyway, I thought I’d take you through some of the meals and snacks I’ve been eating lately.
Fresh raspberries with almond butter and chocolate & white chocolate chips – a very dessert-y way to eat fruit! I also tried this combo with fresh blueberries and strawberries. Yum!
Roasted fennel – OMG, obsessed. One of my vegan CrossFit friends gave me this idea, and I’ve been in love ever since. She calls them “fennel steaks.” To make them, just slice up a bulb of fennel, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and roast for 20-25 minutes on 400 degrees F. Amazing!
Chicken sausage with butternut squash and apples – totally threw this meal together and it turned out so well. Approximately measurements: 11 ounces sliced chicken sausage, 3 cups frozen butternut squash, 1 diced apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and garlic powder to taste. To make: nuke squash in microwave for 5 minutes with spices and then sauté sausage and apple with a little bit of olive oil for 7-8 minutes. Mix it all together and enjoy!
Sautéed kale, radicchio, and onion with chickpeas – simple, delicious, and nutritious. I haven’t had radicchio in ages, so I picked up some at Whole Foods the other day. I just seasoned it with garlic and sea salt for some extra flavor. Perfect.
Coconut water – tastes so amazing after a hot, sweaty workout. I mix it with water and then CHUG it! The taste encourages me to drink more, so it definitely helps to hydrate me.
Whole Foods hot bar – my go-to lately. It’s been so hot and I haven’t felt like cooking, so I stop by Whole Foods and hit up their hot bar for lunch or dinner. It’s the best.
Blue Diamond flavored almonds – I’ve been living off these lately. Blue Diamond was a sponsor at Fitbloggin’, so the PR reps hooked us up with a bunch of the different flavors. The coffee, coconut, and salt & vinegar flavors are the bomb!! Seriously, I cannot stop eating them.
Almond yogurt with sliced banana and coconut almonds – I’m almond crazy! Did you know there’s now almond yogurt? Yup. Yogurt made from almonds. That’s nuts (ha!), right? I found it at Whole Foods the other day and just had to try it. It’s pretty darn good!
Homemade berry iced tea – my drink of choice lately. Just add frozen berries to homemade iced tea! The berries keep the iced tea cold and add a deliciously sweet and fruity flavor.
No-Bake Cookie Dough – love this stuff. You guys saw this recipe on CNC the other day, right? If not, it’s gluten-free and egg-free cookie dough you can make in minutes and eat straight from the bowl. It’s incredible!
