Raise your hand if you agree with me! ^
It’s fun to make, it’s fun to order, it’s fun to buy (well maybe not the actual losing money part of that exchange…but it becoming yours is fun, no?), it’s fun to look at (and drool over), and mostly it’s just fun to EAT.
Am I right?
Anyway, that’s what was on my mind today as I looked at the food photos I had chillin’ on my iPhone that didn’t make the cut in the past couple WIAWs because they weren’t consumed in Cape Cod (round 1 OR round 2).
So this week I’m ‘attending’ the hilarious Jenn‘s link up party (have you seen her Instagram hashtags? I actually laugh out loud), not with a dreamy “WIWIAW“, or with fancy shmancy eats from NYC or Cape Cod, but instead with a regular old (but still insanely yummy!) WIAW.
Enough talk. Let’s get to the good stuff.
Yesterday’s protein-packed breakfast.
^ What you see here are 2 scrambled eggs – one with garlic and chili powder, spinach, and a few very thin granny smith apple slices (big fan of sweet & savory over here!), and the other with cinnamon and apple slices! I know, both combos sound a little weird for eggs, but seriously, you just have to try them before you judge.
Oh, and of course I enjoyed the rest of the (huge) granny smith + plain greek yogurt with cinnamon! Then after my workout I had a cranberry almond Simple protein bar.
‘Twas a very tasty, very healthy start to the day!
No clue how long ago I took these pics, but here are more before-work meals. MorningStar Farms garden burgers, Flat Out wheat wraps, pop chips (sweet potato is my absolute favorite!), white nectarines, and Sparkling Ice. Ya know, the usual.
And a during-work lunch. Still obsessed with carbs of all kinds, especially in the form of ginormous bagels!
I’m seriously loving the almost weekly Cosi takeout thing we’ve got going this summer… How gorgeous is this salad?
Yet another repeat offender – my fave mango salsa salmon!
A summertime classic – hamburgers and corn
on off the cob! My burger was super thick so I cut it the long way and ate each half ‘open face’ with tomato, onion, mustard, hot sauce, and lettuce on top!
A snack of one nasty looking greek yogurt + frozen banana smoothie (sprinkled with cinnamon) and one of my favorite protein bars. Yes, the smoothie looks awful, but it tastes amazing.
I don’t know why, but I have always loved sloppy-joes. We had them with some clean sides – sweet potato, zucchini, and summer squash. See what I did there? 😉
Nothing like cupcakes at a party. I can’t remember the last time I had one, so as soon as I took my first bite, I remembered how stinkin’ delicious cake is. These bad boys were so moist and fudgy, I just had to have two!
This bar. Dark chocolate pretzel with sea salt. Sweet + salty = perfection.
Panera strawberry poppyseed & chicken salad. Nothing says summer quite like this!
Another thing I’m loving this summer (and all the time)?
Kind bars! I’ve liked every flavor I’ve ever tried, but my favorites are: Almond & Coconut, Almond Cashew With Flax + Omega 3, Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio + Antioxidants, Blueberry Vanilla & Cashew, and Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt. Yummmmm!
Even more fun egg creations! (See, I told ya I make the ‘best’ eggs 😉 )
Apple cinnamon ‘pancake’, a wheat wrap, and another egg scrambled with tomatoes, broccoli, green peppers, and hot sauce!
You know what I love doing no matter what time of year it is?
Sipping a mug of coffee. (And simultaneously being a complete weirdo…)
I usually make about two cups of Archer Farms coffee (the s’mores flavor is especially fabulous!) in the morning, and then sip it all. day. long. I like it at any temperature, so I’ll reheat it, put it on ice, or just drink it at room temp!
The perfect pre-workout snack = Almond butter, banana, and cinnamon whole wheat ‘pizzas’.
And last but certainly not lease, I love ending almost every summer day with ice-cream.
(And the Kardashians…)
Woohoo that was fun! I love getting to see what foods other people are loving, so I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my everyday eats!
I’ll see ya soon with a special post, so keep an eye out for that 🙂
Have a happy Hump Day!
