I looked at my calendar last night and realized that I’ll be eating out Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. Eek 😳 My kitchen won’t recognize me when I’m back 😉 I’m going to try to eat a little cleaner at the meals I have more control over. This started today.
Breakfast: FFL english muffin with Barney Butter and a small banana
Mid-morning snack: red grapes + chocolate mousse Crazy Camel hummus
I guess the grapes were supposed to taste like cherries when covered in hummus, but guess what? They tasted like grapes! 😆 I thought this combo was too sweet actually, so I ate the grapes first, then slowly enjoyed the chocolate mousse. The stuff is so yummy! 😀
About 1.5 hours later, I went on a speedy 4 mile run – 8:26 average pace. Nice!
Lunch: leftover pork tenderloin stuffed with goat cheese, dates and pecans + 1/3 giant sweet potato and sweet pea leaves/avocado salad.
I’ve made this pork before here, and it turned Adam into a goat cheese lover. This is actually his favorite meal I make, and it’s so easy! It looked a little better at dinner the night before…
The photo is very orange and bluh looking but it’s a very delicious dish. I don’t think it really tastes like mac and cheese, per se. It is a cheesy sauce over macaroni but the winter squash makes the whole thing sweeter and the reasonable amount of cheese (reasonable = not a crazy amount) makes it less creamy and sinful than your average mac and cheese. I’ve made this before and will make it again, I’m just saying if you make it too, don’t expect a buttery/cheesy/creamy mac and cheese. It’s just a yummy meal in it’s own category, in my opinion.
Oh, I also stole a sip of Adam’s Malbec 😉
Dessert was fun. My sister got us some Max Brenner chocolates and dishes for some holiday a while ago, and I found it while packing. It’s been way too long since we got this (sorry, Innz) but I was always trying to “be good” so we didn’t even put a dent in most of the stuff. It’s still good though! I assembled a little suckao (hot chocolate shot) for myself by lighting a candle and warming up some skim milk.
Ready to sip:
The spoon is the coolest! It has a straw built in:
Yum! Better late than never, right? 😉
Hope your day is going well. I can’t believe the Healthy Living Summit activities are starting tomorrow. I’m getting really excited!! 😀
