Breakfast

Hey there!  Just stopping in to share my eats for the What I Ate Wednesday party!  Today was a little insane, I had so much work to do I could barely stop for a second to breathe.  Fortunately I was able to escape for a much needed Crossfit WOD, come home for a quick dinner and then leave again for a Farmer’s Market meeting.  Needless to say, the bed is calling my name right now so I’m going to make it quick today.

For breakfast I had a grapefruit and some leftover roasted potatoes and two over-easy eggs.  SO GOOD!  It was actually too much, I wasn’t able to finish it all.

Lunch

For lunch I had a spinach salad with roasted broccoli, artichokes, feta & tomatoes and a bowl of leftover chili.  It was a white chili I made with shredded chicken, artichokes, chickpeas & cannellini beans, the recipe was very similar to this (without the spinach).  This was even better leftover than it was the first day I made it.  If you haven’t made a white chili before, now is the time to try it! Its definitely chili season!

Snack

I needed a little quick fuel before heading out to crossfit so I had a banana and a spoonful of peanut butter.

Dinner

I had about .2 seconds to prepare and eat dinner between crossfit and my meeting so I toasted up some bread, spread on some avocado and aged gouda and called it a day.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

 

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:

My little plant that could.

Plant

I kill pretty much every plant that I come in contact with so I’m so proud of this plant that Tom bought me OVER a year ago!  Look at those healthy leaves and beautiful flowers!!  It makes me so happy every morning when I check on it every morning and see the little flowers budding.  Yay, I have a green thumb! (at least for one un-killable plant)

    I’ve been meaning to try avocado toast…I read through Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook recently, and she just raved about it! I really like your addition of cheese too!

  2. I like your avocado on a toast, but at me never it turns out to make so. You turn avocado into mashed a fork or how?
    Haha, and I understand your problem with plants. At me the cactus didn’t survive even!

      I usually just spread it on with a knife like butter if the avocado is ripe enough. If it’s not soft enough, you can mash it up with a fork or just cut thin slices and eat it like that :) It tastes better if you add a little sea salt & pepper too.

    I love the simplicity of avocado and cheese on toast.

    So, we just bought a house and I cannot wait to get some plants!

    I love, love, love avocado & cheese toast! Another one to try is toast with avocado and add some red pepper flakes…just a few crushed up. They add a nice little heat ;)

  5. This whole day of food looks fantastic!! I love over easy eggs on avocado toast topped with some sriracha!

  6. I love anything with cheese and avocado, so your dinner looks fabulous to me! One of my kids favorites (which I had kind of forgotten about lately!!) is toast with refried black beans, avocado and cheese… (usually cheddar or mozzarella, but gouda sounds fabulous!!)
