Happy (Good) Friday!
If you’re wondering what b/l/d is, it’s just breakfast/lunch/dinner. I shortened it since it seemed a little long in the title.
I picked up something new this week during my grocery run - Engine 2 Sprouted Ancient Grains Tortillas and while I was in that carb aisle english muffins sounded so good (as did just about everything else on that shelf) so I also grabbed a pack of the Rudi’s spelt. It’s been well over a year since I’ve bought those, but I’m so glad I did. And these two carbs definitely helped highlight the best meals I had this week.
I’ve been eating those english muffins every morning and loving em. Best (and only) breakfast this week has been a toasted english muffin every morning, slathered with ricotta cheese + four fruits jam. I had half a jar of part-skim ricotta cheese leftover from making lasagna last week that desperately needed to be used up. This is probably the best way to do so.
If you haven’t tried ricotta + jam, I highly suggest you to. So. good.
And the best lunch was definitely this turkey wrap. Honey dijon + smashed avocado spread onto an engine 2 tortilla and topped with turkey ham (which is basically just 100% turkey made to look like ham) before wrapping it up and sitting it on a bed of baby arugula. I actually ended up stuffing the arugula into the wrap after taking that photo. On the side I had about 1/3 of this Evolution Super Green juice that I picked up at Starbucks with my free drink or food reward. It tasted like a dessert so it was the perfect way to wrap up lunch.
I’d rate these tortillas an A-. They’re fairly hard to begin with, but after a 45 second spin in the microwave, they softened up and had a nice chew to them. Very hearty for sure.
Best dinner this week was my veggie box dinner. Out of laziness and hunger pangs (I blame it on those), I popped into Whole Foods on my way home one evening and put together a box with the best looking veggies at their food bar. I lovee their roasted cauliflower and cabbage salads. On the side I also enjoyed a sweet potato I pre-baked in a batch earlier in the week.
I’d like to say I’m better at meal prepping, but baking a few sweet potatoes on Monday is about as good as it gets. And making kale salads.
Have a fantastic weekend! Especially if you get today off!
PS – apologies for the funky looking borders on some of the photos. I updated wordpress and now I can’t seem to figure out how to take them off! Any suggestions/advice would definitely be appreciated
