After a marathon week of eating out last week, I was eager to get in the kitchen and start cooking, prepping meals, and eating whole, delicious foods. Mission...Accomplished.
I mentioned that it's been beautiful weather, but despite the heat, I still randomly crave oat bran for breakfast about once a week. I had a couple packets of almond butter left over from our trip to the states. This Justin's Maple Almond Butter is delicious. It's probably a good that I don't have a whole jar.
I typically freeze my own strawberries, but it's also great to have this frozen berry medley from Woolworths in my freezer.
These make some pretty delicious Protein Packed Smoothies...
They have been the star of my lunches! I love the combination of tomato and feta or ricotta.
Now that my stomach is finally feeling better, I have been back to an old favorite. Nespresso!
And, a mid-day macchiato...just to make up for lost time.
My newest addiction is Mama Pea's Nutty Cauliflower. I have made this twice this week using tahini and ate both batches. All by myself. Two full bags of cauliflower. Gone.
This stuff is awesome (and Vegan!). Steamed cauliflower doesn't appeal to me, but once it's roasted, it gets a wonderful nutty taste. This combo, with the addition of spice and a bit of sweetness (I used NuNaturals NoCarbs Stevia) is unbelievable. I plan on getting more cauliflower tomorrow because I'm clearly a fan...
Do you look forward to eating in after too many restaurant meals? Yes. I cannot eat meal after meal in a restaurant. I need to have a couple things that I cook and prepare throughout the week.
