I'm in love with this make-ahead steel-cut oatmeal. The obsession is real. I think my smoothies are getting a little jealous if you know what I'm sayin'. I shared the exact recipe on Facebook if you're interested, which you most certainly should be. I realized that I've been eating frozen blueberries for so long that I forgot how delish the fresh ones are!
I snacked on a vegan chocolate banana muffin mid-morning---my third batch! I made this one without oil just to test the waters and they still turned out great.
After a fabulous nutrition counseling appointment up in The Fitness Loft, I dove into my lunch: my favorite pomegranate, farro, and arugula salad plus some soup of the day, which was creamy chickpea, tomato, and coconut soup. I must say that Alchemy has THE best soup.
Prepping food on Sunday really does make lunch-packing a breeze. I pack my breakfast and lunch every single day, and that would be next to impossible without preparing healthy eats ahead of time.
Snackage included a big gala apple with almond butter.
I also noshed on some fiesta black bean salad that I whipped up for a catering event tomorrow.
I'm always ready to eat my arm off around 6pm before Body Pump, so I snacked on some cinnamon roasted chickpeas, highly mediocre strawberries, and roasted sweet potatoes with hummus.
Definitely ate too much before class...#yolo.
Dinner was this Brussels sprout, tempeh, and soba noodle skillet. I liked it but I probably wouldn't make it again. I'd like it to be saucier and I think I just prefer my sprouts roasted. Adding an egg and extra siracha definitely didn't hurt!
Before bed I had more roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli with hummus. It sounds weird, but this is seriously my favorite snack! I could eat three sweet potatoes in one sitting. Easily. This is another thing that I always prep on the weekends so I have them ready to go throughout the week.
And as I finish writing this post that I had to re-write because it decided not to save, I realize how badly I want (need) dark chocolate.
I'm a firm believer that all good things end with chocolate.
