Hello! Happy Thursday. 🙂
Thankfully it’s almost Friday. I’m so tired from this whole week – math exams, Leadership project, speeches and essays to write, emails to answer… blah. The weather is just making it worse. It was sunny ALL of last week – I’m talkin’ tank top + sunscreen sunny – and then it poured all weekend. It’s still raining now. I can’t believe it’s already been May for a whole week, because the weather = February. Cold and drizzly!
Anyways – today’s post is going to be a goodie! I’m so excited to show you all of the yummy meals I’ve been having recently. Here we go!
Banana pancakes with berries on top.
As always, these healthy pancakes are topped with chia, four types of nut butter (!), and yogurt. Yogurt is like whipped cream in that it adds moisture to the meal, but it’s not so light and airy. You know? By the way, I’m making a whole new PAGE just for pancakes. You can see it here – it’s still under construction now. 😉
Sushi lunch with the family – my fave way to spend a Sunday.
I always make a tally of how many I eat – usually I’m done at 16-20 pieces, plus a little salad.
We had chocolate brownie for dessert! Used the Trader Joe’s brownie mix. It was SO easy to whisk it up with a cup of plain yogurt and bake. Done!
Check out that crackly top. To DIE for!
Dinner was maple-soy salmon, just like last time. Onion scrambled eggs on the side, and also some
baked burned baked butternut squash.
Lunch salad the next day featured leftover baked trout and butternut squash.
Dinner is egg + scallion noodles with some baby spinach. All swimmin’ in chicken broth. I love runny eggs in soup! There’s also some bok choy in here. Dinner for one is good, but I still like my Mom Meals!
Another salad! This one stars mixed greens, carrots, and radishes. My mom cut the radishes pretty thickly, so I didn’t have a good first impression! I honestly thought they tasted like dirt. AKA not good. BTW, that’s cubed papaya on the right. It was not good! Sort of powdery and mealy. I didn’t finish them.
Dressing was simple: EVOO, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, a little blob (I just wrote blog) of Dijon mustard, and honey. Quick and easy, but totally delish. The addition of honey is awesome. Goat cheese, TJ’s toasted almonds, and berries on top. These salads get all jumbled up in my backpack, so when I eat them at lunch they’re already dressed in melty goat cheese.
Oatmeal! Plain ‘ole oats topped with sliced banana and berries. LOVE fresh berries on oatmeal. That’s a big spoonful of almond butter on the left, and a drizzle of maple on top. Check out that landscape!
And the grand finale…
Coconut chicken curry is my absolute fave, as I’ve gushed about here and here. This time, we added pretty much every vegetable in the fridge, plus butternut squash (melted into the sauce – put it in too early!) and cubed chicken breast. Fluffy, coconut-infused jasmine rice on the bottom. I just had dinner, but I would kill for a bowl of this right now. Mmmm!
And thirds. 😛
Obviously I hated my dinner. 😉
I guess that’s it for now. These are my favourite posts because I love writing about the meals I’ve been having. Can’t wait to do another one. Bye byeee.
