Ok, I’m just going to get right down to business here. My body is aching from boot camp this morning and I’m exhausted from staring at a computer screen all day SO, here are my eats for Wednesday.
For breakfast I had my usual green smoothie made with kale, spinach, cucumber, blueberries, water, strawberries, pineapple & a little vanilla protein powder. It was delicious (as usual).
I wasn’t sure if the smoothie was going to hold me over until lunch so I had a little bit of leftovers of the frittata I made Monday night. It had caramelized leeks, spinach & sweet potatoes. It was yummy and took about 20 minutes to make so it was a great dinner. And breakfast for that matter!
For lunch I had some lemon ginger lentil soup that I made this weekend, I’ll have the recipe for this one soon. It’s a GOOD ONE! I also had another small piece of the frittata but I don’t have a picture because there’s no need for you to look at another sad photo like that, it was delicious, I swear!
For a snack I made some chili & cocoa powder kale chips. I’ll have the recipe coming up for this one too, they were GOOD! Like I may or may not have finished all of them. Yes, I ate an ENTIRE head of Kale today, and if you count the handful I put in my smoothie, I ate OVER an entire head of Kale. Can you die of overconsumption of Kale? Hope not! Actually, that wouldn’t be a bad obituary. ”She lived a happy life and died with her belly full of green goodness.”
For dinner I made a Mexican pie which was inspired by Heather’s Mexican Pie Recipe. I really hope I can salvage this and take some better photos tomorrow because it deserves to be shared, it was so good! I made it with black beans, shredded chicken, peppers, spinach & onions, and a little bit of almond cheese on top.
Everything was going great, the pie was in the oven bubbling away. I took it out to take the tin foil off and then decided I was too lazy to take BOTH pot holders out because the drawer was 2 inches from my hand and that would be WAY too much work. So being all strong I went to put the heavy pan back in the oven using my one super strong hand (which happens to not be as strong as I thought) and in slow motion the pie went flying INTO the oven. Yup, I dropped it. In. The. Oven. I shouted expletives at the dog as I used a spatula to scrape beans and chicken out of every crevice of my oven. It was fun.
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
I’ve been really into tea lately. It’s my new afternoon treat and it gives me that little extra energy to get through the afternoon. It’s purely mental because it’s decaf tea but there’s something in the routine of making the tea and having that warm cup in my hands that I love.
