Happy hump day! I love documenting what I'm eating on Wednesdays because (1) I love linking up and seeing what other people are eating -- I've gotten some great ideas from checking out other's posts at Jenn's What I Ate Wednesday party; (2) I love having a record of my eats that I can look back on.
Honestly, posting my food every Wednesday keeps me motivated to eat whole foods and encourages me to try new foods. Last week I bought hemp hearts and have started experimenting with how to include them in my meals. Case in point:
Lately we've been all about easy meals at our house. I knew this week was going to be crazy, so I took photos of my eats on Monday:
Breakfast: two fried eggs and (not pictured) avocado on toast
Mid-morning: (I ate breakfast super early in the day) strawberries with plain yogurt, almonds, and hemp hearts!
Lunch: leftovers from Sunday night -> slow cooker chicken chili (yum!) with sour cream, green onions, and a healthy side of roasted broccoli
Snacking throughout the day: trail mix (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, raisins, and dark chocolate chips)
Late afternoon snack / early dinner: california roll (purchased while shopping for ingredients for dinner)... and maybe a rice cracker with some guacamole
Dinner (after the kids were put in bed): steak with sauteed medley of brussel sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms, and red bell pepper. Sooooo soooo good. Definitely putting this one in rotation.
Post-dinner: some strawberries and my prenatal vitamin (necessary for nursing mamas!)
Store-bought sushi roll excepted, all of these meals required little time to prepare. Frying eggs is easy, anyone can throw fruit and yogurt together, the leftover chili got reheated on the stovetop, and dinner took less than 30 minutes to make.
What's your idea of an easy meal? What do you cook when you don't have a lot of time (or energy)?
