So Sally asked people to please share food and snack ideas. Sometimes the problem is not that we don’t know what to eat, but that we are SICK of eating the same stuff, right?! So here were some of the shared ideas:
Breakfast – eggs, crustless quiche, egg “muffins” (make in muffin/cupcake pan for the week), oatmeal with cinnamon and honey, jalepeno/cheese egg casserole, banana pancakes with real maple syrup – check the label (expensive, but so worth it)
Snacks –almonds, fruit, mozz. cheese, greek yogurt with berries in it, cashews, Food Should Taste Good chips with guacamole, smoothies – all kinds. (I do a chocolate, cocoa, almond butter smoothie when I need something sweet)
Lunch/Dinner – leftovers of course, pork loin, grilled or baked chicken breasts, turnip greens, avocado and black beans with chicken & brown rice, tuna with avocado & lemon, beef stew with potatoes, carrots, celery, brussel sprouts, etc. in crock pot (house smells so good tonight), steak & sweet potatoes with a salad or green beans, fish – all kinds! (Peach Stand and Trader Joe’s have some good not-so fishy choices), mahi mahi with quinoa (added peppers, garlic, olive oil, and celery to quinoa – yum!), and broccoli. Oh and don’t forget roasted veggies – so easy and yummy!
Drinks? (besides good ole water) coffee, tea, and sparkling water with a piece of fruit in it
Please share your ideas– it helps us all when we feel grouchy or HANGRY. It will happen this month. You are not alone. But plan as much as you can, so it’s not too often.
See you in the morning! 5:30am-6:00am.
