Welp, it’s been one big study party over here so far this week. I know, you’re jealous. It’s okay.
But the good news is that in just a few more days, my finals will all be over with and I can enjoy a few weeks of much needed T.L.C. I can’t wait! In the mean time, please excuse and ignore all spelling/grammar errors and all other shenanigans as my brain is just a bit too filled with Macroeconomics and Biology at the moment.
Either way, I have some picture unloading from the last few days so I was not going to miss another round of What I Ate Wednesday!
The awesome folks of Coaches Oats kindly sent me some steal cut goodness to try out:
Now I know why so many rave about them! These are cracked steel cut oats, so they require much less cooking time than the regular steel cut variety. I cooked them up the same way I do my rolled oats and they came out thick, chewy, creamy, and voluminous. I’m in love! I have not seen them in stores anywhere around here but I spotted a pretty good deal here on Amazon for them. I will definitely be buying more!
steel cut apple pie protein egg white oats. Cooked in water/almond milk/egg whites/cinnamon and added a microwaved chopped Jazz apple and a scoop of cinnamon protein powder—>I like to just slightly mix it in around the top so you can really taste it! Only if you use a good tasting protein powder though, ha ha.
cinnamon and ginger steel cut oats with a green banana-cado protein shake
my favorite snack plate! Berries, cottage cheese, and boiled eggs
cara cara oranges, pumpkin coconut flour bars, cracker crisps with cottage cheese and cracked black pepper
*The bar recipe is a winner! So tastey! Coconut flour in baked goods (or anything really) is so darn good.
baked turkey pieces and goat cheese atop spinach, tomato, and snap peas. Angela’s vegan Easy Creamy Tomato Barley Risotto
been a while since I have made that recipe but it will be in the rotation a lot more now! This is a great carb source to make for Weekend Prep and have portions ready to warm up and eat. It is so easy to make and full of creamy cheezey goodness!
blackberries and a peanut butter + egg white wrap
roasted turkey, ezekiel bread with mashed avocado and sea salt + pepper, roasted noochy spinach, and spaghetti squash
CHEETAHS. I will never tire of sweet potatoes…or kabocha. You will almost always find some in my fridge. I like to toss them in coconut oil and sea salt and bake up big batches at a time.
One heck of a dinner; roasted kabocha, roashed cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, and pan seared salmon. nom.
spaghetti squash with sauteed spinach, marinara, and four cheese chicken sausage, more tomato barley risotto
Little B’s clean “turkey pizza” ( turned out great!!!) with roasted kabocha. X2, let’s be honest.
and of course, cheesecake. Still not tired of it. (check my recipe page for all the cheesecake links, and more to come)
That concludes my break from studying….it was fun while it lasted. Time to keep conquering! I’ve got a great workout to share to you all though soon, so check back!
