Eats For Today

I was lazy and hungry this morning so breakfast was pretty simple! Plain Greek yogurt, (2 drops stevia sweetener, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract) topped with chopped strawberries, pineapple chunks, an extra pinch of sweetener and a few crushed almonds. Oh and since I was in the mood, some Chocolate Chai Tea. Sadly it was raining..so no sitting outside for breakfast today!

One of my snacks today was this protein bar I’d had sitting in the back of my cupboard for ages that I’d been meaning to try! It the macros are not perfect but they are still decent! It’s a smaller bar too which I liked. The taste wasn’t something I could quite put my finger on. It tasted pretty similar to any typical protein bar. The chocolate coating was nice and I liked the little pieces of chocolate inside. Overall I probably wouldn’t purchase again but it’s not bad!

For dinner I had one of my favourite things..it’s weird but I now love to eat my spaghetti sauce and meatballs over brown rice! Half a cup just cooked normally with a little salt. (Though I do add a little extra water to the rice and cook it slightly longer so it gets a bit more fluffy!).

My favourite toppings..Parmesan cheese and red chili pepper flakes, nothing ever has enough spice to me.

So..I’ve been having this big debate with my family, what do you prefer spaghetti and meatballs or spaghetti and meat sauce? For me, it’s definitely meatballs!

Comfort Foods, Breakfast & Dinner!

Breakfast Toast Banana PB

Breakfast Today I had an old favourite that I haven’t eaten for a long time! I had 2 slices of thick cut whole wheat bread with natural PB and banana! It was quite a bit and sadly I was full before finishing it all(so hard to throw out good food!) and I wish I hadn’t since I was starving by lunch time! I will probably stick to my usually more filling breakfasts on school days but this was a nice change :).

Pulled Pork Over Rice

For dinner I had some awesome homemade pulled pork (made by my Mom) served over brown rice. So good!

Let me know if you guys like these daily food posts! I will keep it up if you do!

Dinner!

Dinner Stuffed Pepper

Dinner! Tonight I had a delicious stuffed pepper. My Mom made them and as she was serving mine it kind of fell apart…lol. But it still tasted so good! I was full so I didn’t finish all of it but still made room for a little piece of my healthy banana bread for dessert :).

What did you have for dinner tonight?

What I ate: Light Vegetarian Lunch

Light Lunch

I had a nice light lunch today that included fried zucchini  and orange pepper in olive oil with cayenee, chili powder, onion powder and a little salt/pepper. I also added some roasted chickpeas to the hot pan(I picked these up from an awesome asian supermarket that just opened up near my house! They have so many unique things 🙂 ) Then I threw the mixture over some romaine lettuce leaves with a squirt of lemon juice, a little fig goat cheese and a side of half a green apple. It was a great lunch to have instead of eating meat everyday!

Though later for a snack I ended up having a little ham, a handful of almonds, carrots and some snap peas.

Dinner I didn’t get a picture of but it was yummy cabbage rolls with a rice/ground beef and tomato stuffing that my Mom made. And yes..GASP I ate rice! I know I said I was eating Paleo but I still have the odd starchy food in moderation :).

I just ate a snack of a handful of pistachios & a few carrots/strawberries & now I’m off to do my workout! Hope you all have a great night :).

Paleo Fried Rice (Top Pick)

Paleo Mushroom Fried Rice Fav DinnerI have always loved fried rice and when I decided to go Paleo, it was one of the things I knew I would miss most since my Mom makes it regularly for dinner. But as always experimenting and cauliflower have come to the rescue…This tastes so much like the real thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone mistook it as rice.  Continue reading
