I’m going to say upfront that I do not plan to picture or even list everything that I eat everyday, but I thought I would for one day.
My breakfast or protein pancakes was posted earlier and it was so filling that there was no need for my usual morning snack. After lunchtime yoga, I had to rush lunch a bit, so I spread some laughing cow light swiss on a La Tortilla whole wheat green onion tortilla and topped it with turkey, spinach, and red onion. I also had red pepper strips, broccoli, and cauliflower dipped in roasted red pepper humus.
The La Tortilla wraps are high in fiber and have decent protein, so they hold me over longer than bread. I use them a lot for breakfast tacos, lunch, or spread with nutbutter for a snack (obviously I use the plain and not green onion flavor for that).
Afternoon snack was Fage plain greek yogurt with cinnamon, stevia and blueberries.
I had to eat in the car since I had to get back to work. Fage is by far my favorite greek yogurt, but I tend to buy what’s on sale or cheaper at the moment. It does seem to be much creamier than others, though, so I splurge on it now and again. I like the plain because it gives me so many options of mix-ins.
After a long afternoon of work and stopping by the husband’s clinic to see if there were any fun little animals I needed to see, I got caught in traffic on the way home. Typically I get home before that starts since I office from home and make my own schedule when I’m out and about, but the Friday rush hour starts a bit earlier. I was starving when I got home and Mr. Coffee wasn’t far behind me, so I started on dinner.
I tried a new recipe from Cooking light. I had a bag of orange roughy from Costco, so I needed some variety on cooking it. This was a Sunflower seed-crusted Orange Roughy and it was easy and delicious. I also cut up a sweet potato and tossed it with honey, cinnamon and nutmeg and roasted them in the oven. To round it out, I made my go-to salad of spinach, strawberries, and feta topped with fig balsamic vinegar. All in all very satisfying. I can see a glass of red wine and a piece of dark chocolate in my future a well.
One of my favorite all time foods are sweet potatoes. I like just about everything sweet potato and the roasted ones with honey are a common recipe my mom made when I was growing up. They are still one of my favorite ways to enjoy my favorite food. Nice and simple.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
half a sweet potato
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice
Toss all ingredients together and bake at 450 for 20 minutes or until tender. I usually top it with a bit more honey and cinnamon once I plate it. Mr. Coffee doesn’t like sweet potatoes, so this is a recipe for 1
