Consistent (Not Boring!) & a New Nutty Snack Time {WIAW

Good morning Sun

Allow me a moment to indulge in my trash-tv loving ways for a minute. Last night I caught up on the Bachelor, and oh. my. lanta. I know the show just sets us up to hate on Tierra, but that do a darn good job of it. Ohhh that conniving little cackle she does makes my skin crawl.

Can we talk favorites? My vote goes to Ashlee.

Ohh, guilty pleasures.

Another (not so) guilty pleasure? What I Ate Wednesday! This is my 3rd week in a row participating, which I think might be a record. I thought about skipping out, because I have another exciting topic to talk to ya’ll about. Alas, that can await for another day, because I had some darn delicious eats that I want to share with you guys.

So without further ado!

Breakfast: 8:00 A.M.

To refuel from a morning strength workout (front squat, chest press, and a few supporting exercises,) yesterday started off with the same ol’ boring quiche of le mediocrity as the past few breakfasts have:

However, if you add a bunch of avocado, and enough celtic sea salt, you can reach the brim of deliciousness with this dish. With a side of sauerkraut. Bor-ring.

Boring eats aren’t so bad, though. I like me some consistency. I like it so much that I often overdo it with foods *cough*coconutbutter*cough* and then I just know it’s time to switch it up.

Lunch: 1:30 P.M.

Lunch was another consistent meal around these parts. Unless I have leftovers, you can pretty much garuntee lunch will be greens + some kind of fish + vinegar/oil + nuts/seeds.

I’ve been obsessed with eating said salad out of mason jars, lately, too. I had this one after doing a first workout with a new member. Layers: balasamic>EVOO>greens>tin of sardines>sesame seeds>lemon juice

And then spoon forkfuls of coconut butter to face:

Delicious. Consistent (not boring.) Don’t worry, I break out the excitement later with my nighttime snack Winking smile

Dinner: 8:00 P.M.

Dinner was pretty late last night, since I didn’t get home until about 7:00 and this meal took around 45 minutes to cook:

Herb-roasted chicken thighs, asparagus w/ balsamic reduction, and a sweet potato w/ buttah, salt, and cinnamon. I’ve recently learned that I love chicken thighs way more than I do chicken breasts. This is a double win, because they’re about half the price at Whole Foods.

Shane and I both loved this meal. I’m so happy there will be leftovers Open-mouthed smile

Snack: 9:00 P.M.

Although this meal filled me up, I wanted a little more, and knew I should probably get in a few more calories, so I had a snack.

This is my most recent nighttime snack obsession – a chopped banana + a glob of NuttZo + a couple bits of dark chocolate:

‘Freals, you guys. I’d actually never tried NuttZo before, and was super stoked when the company sent me a jar to review through FitFluential. It was love at first spoonful to face, and all the better since it contains SEVEN nuts and seeds, 50% of my omega 3’s, and is 100% organic. I’ve actually been using it in place of my almond butter for most of my snacks this week. I’ll be sad when this jar’s empty!

And that concludes this week’s What I Ate Wednesday. Thanks, Jenn, for hosting this blog par-tay!

Your turn:

What’s one of your consistent (not boring!) meals or snacks lately?

  1. Love the meals! Sometimes consistent but boring meals are the best. I don’t think anything on here is boring though ;) I’m drooling over that nighttime snack!

  4. totally with you on chicken thighs vs. chicken breast debate. I’ll eat chicken breast, but I definitely prefer thighs or drumsticks.

    I’ve been eating either oatmeal and eggs or a protein pancake for breakfast almost every morning for the last…oh, 3-4 months? If it ain’t broke…

  5. Can you believe that I’ve never tried coconut butter before? It’s always so expensive so I talk myself out of buying it. I think it’s time I bite the bullet and just buy myself a jar.

  6. One of my go to dinners is a sweet potato with sharp cheddar, light sour cream and hot sauce. It (almost) never gets old!

  7. I need to try this Nuttzo! I also love that you put your salads in mason jars, loveee mason jars!

  8. Peanut butter and jam on toast with a glass of milk has been a favorite consistent (but not boring!) snack around here lately. Can’t get enough!

  9. that dinner looks so good, I am a still a wimp when it comes to cooking meat. i need to start experimenting more

  10. That nut butter is the absolute best! Okay, I like coconut butter better, but it’s a close second;)
    I’ve been eating SO much coconut butter, it’s insane. Can you be addicted to coconut, I think I may be.
    I totally eat the same things, I don’t find it boring since they tend to satisfy me for the most part, whatever floats your boat.

  11. I have been going coconut crazy here lately. Eggs have been a consistent (not boring) meal or snack around here lately as well!

  12. Ugh…don’t even get me started on Tierra. I know they set it up so she seems worse than she (maybe) is, like you said, but it makes me SO angry that I’ve thought about skipping on the rest of the season because I can hardly stand it. That and Sean tells every girl “i’m crazy about you” – I know he has to remain relatively neutral but can someone throw the guy a few other lines?!

  13. Alright, all I can say is that I am so with you on the coconut butter. I had no idea how good it was until I bought some last week. Sufficed to say, the jar is like 1/4 empty and I don’t envision it lasting more that 3 weeks tops! I have used coconut oil for quite awhile but just recently discovering the wonderful yummy-ness of coconut butter. Wow… and I have a serious problem with eating directly from the jar on the first spoonful and then wanting another spoonful, hence getting out a fresh spoon (I don’t double dip in my jars) and then getting another spoon because I want another spoonful. I have now learned to scoop some out and put it in a small sauce bowl so that I don’t have to go through such a production to get my fix. It’s surprising how delicious and satisfying it can be. Tonight I had some on kabocha squash with some almond butter… one word – HEAVEN. :)

  14. i REALLLLLLLLY love sauerkraut but I can not for the life of me find a *clean* version – any suggestions? OH!!! I got your package last night!!!!!! SO MUCH FITMIXER I LOVEEEEEE!!! When the 21 day sugar detox is over I am ALL about that. THANK YOUUUU such a fun surprise! I’m kind of obsessed with how perfectly green that avocado is – it REALLY makes me want my lunch because I have a perfectly ripe cado in my salad and now I want it REALLY bad hah

    • Occasionally I’ll go to WF and get the really funky, local sauerkraut jars. But then I got over spending $8+ a jar, and switched to Bubbies. Still, Bubbies is $6/jar, so now I have my own batch fermenting in my pantry! I also have a bag of the no-brand, refrigerated kind in the fridge in case. lol
      And YAY! Glad you got the Fitmixer :) Sorry my TY card was so late :-P

  15. That’s my kind of dinner :)
