Good morning and happy Monday!
I’m so glad you guys liked the inaugural edition of Monday In Meals! Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It’ll definitely become a regular feature on CNC in the future!
I actually dined out quite a bit in the past few days, so I decided to include a day of eating to give you an idea how I balance dining out “splurges” with my usual eats. The meals and snacks below are from last Thursday when I dined out at Burton’s Grill. Ok, here we go: Monday in Meals dining out edition!
Pumped Up Banana Oatmeal with sliced almonds + iced coffee with almond milk and Collagen Hydrolysate <— I recently started using this to help with GI stuff as well as proper thyroid and hormone balance. I’m currently working with Nicole from Whole Health RD, and we think I have some sort of thyroid and hormonal stuff going on related to my UC symptoms, so I’m giving this (among other things) a try to hopefully fix myself. (The Entyvio is kind of working, but I’m still not in remission.) FYI: I dissolve the Collagen Hydrolyate in a little warm water (just from the tap) before mixing it into my iced coffee.
Lunch at Burton’s: Roasted beet salad with ahi tuna, goat cheese, roasted sweet onions, candied walnuts, and mustard vinaigrette. It was epic, and I ate almost the entire thing!
While running errands at Derby Street: Vietnamese cold brew (1/2 decaf) from Whole Foods. My fav!
A few Parmesan Crisps from Whole Foods because OMG, THEY ARE AMAZING. Cheese lovers: You NEED to try them!
Leftovers from Cask ‘N’ Flagon (Mal, Quinn, and I went to dinner there the night before): House salad with grilled salmon and a side of honey mustard. The portion was pretty huge, so I ate about half and took the rest home for later. I also added some leftover roasted broccoli and a drizzle of Goddess dressing from Trader Joe’s.
Ramekin of Golden Grahams + chocolate chips
