Good evening! A little late for a post but I wanted to get it in before the day was over! So to start things off, I wanted to let you guys know I will be doing a series of posts on different variations of oatmeal! I know it’s a common food that lots of people have on hand and I figure the recipes may come in handy if you need to spice up your usual breakfast 🙂 With that being said..here was today’s oatmeal.
The add-ins: 1/2 tsp coconut oil, 2/3 cup almond milk, 2 drops stevia sweetener, dash of salt, 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, mini “enjoy life” chocolate chips, small piece of chopped banana, blueberries, 1/2 tsp cinnamon mixed into the oats plus more for topping, sprinkle of shredded coconut, 6 or 7 almonds crushed, light sprinkle of stevia granular. I went a little crazy with ingredients but this creative mix was really great and satisfied my sweet tooth!.
For lunch, I wanted to share with you my absolute favourite thing to eat that I have pretty much every single day! It’s perfect to pack in a cooler/lunch pail for on the go!
My super-filling and very healthy/delicious salad(I’m hesitant to even call it a salad since it is so much more!) includes:
-about 1 cup chopped romaine
-1/4 tomato chopped
-2 large baby carrots or 4 small chopped finely
-1 small chunk of cucumber sliced into 4th’s
-1 chunk of red pepper & 1 chunk of green pepper chopped
-1-2 tbsp minced/finely chopped red onion
-1/2 a piece of black forest ham ripped into smaller pieces
-1/4 cup shredded plain chicken mixed with salt & pepper(mixing it with quite a bit helps to season the whole salad, I prefer canned chicken breast for salads since it’s moist and shreds easily!)
-1 small handful of dried chickpeas
-1/2-1tbsp pecans sprinkled on top
-1/4 of a large avocado or 1/2 of a small one, sprinkle with a little salt before adding for best results!(BEST PART!!)
-20g (about 1-1.5cm thick slice) of chevre or goat cheese.( I buy the one with herbs/spices which really makes a difference!)
-kraft fat-free italian dressing (I love this dressing!!)
-also try olive oil feta dressing
And that’s it! Some days I replace the chickpeas with kidney or black beans and replace the shredded chicken with tuna, yum!!!
Either way I guarantee you will love my outrageous salad. I will include the recipe in a separate post for easier access since this is one of my favourite dishes i’ve ever come up with!
My snack today was the last of my protein crunch bars. It was OK. Not amazing but better then others I’ve had! I still love the yogurt one of the same brand though. I think that’s the only one I would buy again! I also ate today, spicy hummus with carrots/cauliflowers(one of my favourite snacks!) and a little fruit salad just because!
Dinner tonight is not very pretty to look at but I just wanted to get something to show you guys because this is honestly one of the best dinners EVER. It doesn’t look like much but this is the exact replica of Swiss Chalet Chicken with actual Swiss Chalet Sauce you can make at home. So so so good!! This is my new favourite way to eat chicken. On the side, not included in the picture I had peas and some brown rice with soya sauce.
Oh! I also had a little piece of homemade healthy banana bread for dessert…forgot to take a picture.
Later before bed, after my late workout I had some cottage cheese and a tbsp or so of peanut butter.
That’s all for today! I will post more tomorrow, looks like it could be a snow day, fingers crossed! 🙂
P.S would you guys be interested in a workout page? I realized I post so much about my eating but I never post how I stay in shape! Let me know what you think by commenting on this post!
