I think its definitely time to switch gears from all the stress/running posts and talk about food today. Since it’s WIAW and I said the other day that I was going to go back to eating “mostly paleo” I thought I would share what some of my food looked like so far this week. I don’t think I captured everything, and these were over the course of Sunday night through Tuesday night.
Breakfasts were pretty much the what I always eat: bananas before I run, a smoothie after a hard run, and some sort of eggs.
I branched out this week and made a different kind of egg frittata. I followed this recipe which ended up really good except I’m not really feeling the garlic in the morning.
Snacks are usually eaten both in the morning and the afternoon. I’ve been having apples/pears, trail mix (cashews, almonds, raisins) and my usual LARABARs.
Any recommendations for a different kind of LARABAR we can try? We order them on amazon so we would have to get a box of 12, so we are nervous to order anything new without knowing if they are good.
On Sunday I made pulled pork using Michele’s recipe. I’ve never made pulled pork before so I was nervous but it was really easy and came out great!
We had plenty of leftovers so so I used it in a salad on Tuesday along with leftover roasted broccoli.
I’ve been all about the crock pot this week. On Tuesday I made this beef stew. It was so nice to come home from work and have dinner ready. However, I feel like the meat was overcooked and the veggies were undercooked.
We have lots of leftovers from this meal too! Makes lunch planning easier.
I was also really pleased with how my salmon came out on Monday night. It can be really tricky to cook it the right amount but I think I got it just right. I always need to adapt the time based on thickness.
I coated it with olive oil and sprinkled it with salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash seasoning.
I’ve also been having some dark chocolate (and wine on Tuesday) after dinner.
Check back on Saturday to hear about the rest of my meal planning for the week!
Thanks Jenn for hosting the WIAW link-up!
Do you cook meals in a crock pot?
Do you eat a lot of leftovers for lunch?
