Who else is ready for the weekend??
I craved absolutely nothing this week I had the hardest time figuring out what to eat for lunch and dinner.
Breakfast is alway pretty easy. I’m quite happy with a morning round stuffed with coconut butter or a mix of muesli + yogurt + almond milk + sliced bananas.
It was also apparently colorful skirts all this week, which if you know me is fairly unlike me. I’m usually pretty muted and stray towards navy blues, whites, & blacks. I’m just not that colorful.
And guess what? – lunch was not a salad. Major shocker given that I’ve been eating them for the past 3 or 4 weeks nonstop. Well I actually had a salad for lunch one day this week and once for dinner, but otherwise they were pretty much non-existent this week.
I moved on to…
Still green, but something different. After paying an arm an a leg for that above smoothie (all it was was strawberries, banana, and kale) I decided to make my own.
I was kind of skeptical to make my smoothies ahead of time, but they actually still taste great the next day. I just blended together 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 5 frozen cherries, 5 frozen peach slices, a handful spinach, 2 heaping spoonfuls of 2% greek yogurt and blended until smooth.
I stored it in an airtight glass jar overnight. The next morning I transported it over a half hour without refrigeration before putting it into the fridge and drinking it a few hours later.There was no separation and it was still smooth and creamy. Now I know I can make smoothies ahead of time! Total game changer.
I also tried a new to me kombucha this week, Buddha’s Brew.
I only bought it because my favorite holy kombucha was all sold out. It was good, but not as good as holy kombucha. Honestly I didn’t even know what cascade, citra, and palisades were before I bought this. And I’m still not sure I do.
In case you can’t already see, I’ve really been into liquids this week. I wonder if I’m dehydrated or something. Come to think of it, I was really lacking in my water intake the past few weeks. Anyways, my favorite dinner this week was the cioppino I picked up from Whole Foods one night.
I just couldn’t figure out what to eat and the only thing that sounded even slightly appealing was cioppino. Its one of my favorite foods. This wasn’t exactly a true cioppino, but it was still pretty darn tasty.
Ok, I’m off to grab my premade smoothie for today – frozen cherries, frozen strawbs, extremely ripe banana, baby spinach, almond milk, & yogurt – then I’m out the door. Hope everyone has a fun (and relaxing) weekend!!
