Eatin’ Up

15 Aug

Time for some Wednesday Food! Here’s a big photo dump so I can free up my Iphoto account ha ha.

BIG bowl of proats (protein oats) 2 servings of oats cooked with milk and water and 1.5 scoops of cinnamon bun protein powder mixed in. If you’ve never had more than the regular 1/2 cup servings of oats, take my word for it: it’s glorious and so filling.

2% greek yogurt mixed with vanilla protein on top of brown rice cakes, local peaches

my new obession: Rice Crispies Cereal. I buy the gluten free one in the link which is made with brown rice. It’s basically the same thing as this brown rice cereal I wanted, only cheaper. Score. This has been my lunch dessert for the past week straight. I like to mix cinnamon and stevia into it and use lots of almond milk.

Sweet and Savory Zucchini Muffins with Feta Parmesan and Green Onion. love love love this recipe from Kalyn’s Kitchen! The the sweet and savory aspects work surprisingly well together. These are almost gone. I made them yesterday. 🙂

Guys, I found THE BEST way to cook salmon. Read this page for Slow Roasted Salmon. It is amazing! Tender, flavorful, and no chance of being overcooked. There is nothing worse than overcooked fish or meat to me. I need that juiciness! This is how I will be making salmon from now on.

newest dessert combo:

Cookies and Cream Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream:

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese, blended
  • 1 scoop cookies and cream protein powder
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • additional stevia, if needed
  • 1 chopped up coconut dark chocolate chunk (see below)

Coconut Dark Chocolate Chunk:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • dash of almond milk
  • dash of stevia

Combine everything except chocolate chunk. Freeze for 1-2 hours and re-blend to ice cream consistency. Mix together chocolate chunk ingredients, plop onto parchment paper, and stick in the fridge/freezer for at least 5 minutes to harden. Chop up and mix into your ice cream!

You will be amazed at how luscious the chocolate will be. Coconut oil does wonders, let me tell you. I would rather this over any store-bought chocolate, easy.

Do you have a recent food obsession?

I am all about those sweet and savory zucchini muffins and the rice crispies cereal. It makes me feel like a kid again!

Hope everyone enjoy the rest of their Wednesday. I’m off to finally relax for the evening. Work training at the new dining center started today and I’ve been running around for school things in between that. A little bit of relaxation is deserved I’d say. Good night!
