Yesterday was an eat-all-the-things kind of day and today I’m completely satisfied with my meals. I love that everything balances out. It can be hard learning to trust your body and what it’s telling you but it definitely knows best!
I made it to the 7am class again today! After class I came home and heated up some egg patties.
No picture because it didn’t come out looking appetizing at all. But, I promise these guys are tasty and easy to pop in the toaster oven to reheat. They also freeze like a charm making it easy to have a fast breakfast on hand. I’m still fiddling with the recipe and I’ll share that as soon as I have it set. These contain:
Frothy coffee to go with it. I changed things up a bit this morning and used vanilla ghee + collagen in the coffee. The ghee I got from Thrive Market. It’s OK, I thought it would have a more pronounced vanilla flavor but it’s very subtle.
Lunch was a salad with some chicken thighs that I dipped in Sir Kensington Special Sauce. This salad is what I like to call a “base salad”, I make a huge batch of it and then it’s ready to go all week. All I have to do is add some toppings and part of lunch is done and ready to go!
This base had:
And I dressed it in a balsamic dressing made from balsamic + olive oil + dijon + honey. The longer this salad sits, the better it gets! Easy to put together, I just get some bags of kale and shredded cabbage from TJ’s. The kale I pulse in the food processor for a bit so that the pieces are on the smaller side.
The toppings today were grape tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
Dinner was leftovers from Sunday.
Pork roast with carrots, potatoes, and gravy. I shredded the pork and made crispy pork for dinner today! I heated the shredded pork in a skillet with some ghee and olive oil to get some crispy edges. The potatoes and carrots just got heated up in the toaster oven. Dinner was quick to put on the table today!
Now it’s time to chill with my guy and watch to see if we get any snow or nasty weather. Forecast is different on every site, the most extreme is calling for 4-8 inches of snow from tonight till Friday morning. Good bye spring like weather, winter is on its way back!
