WIAW plus Coffee in a Jar

After all that plane nonsense, let’s get back to normal.

By normal, I guess I mean eating.

Breakfast: eggs with cayenne pepper, turkey bacon, reduced sugar ketchup.

Snack: 0% Fage with chopped apple, cinnamon, NuNaturals vanilla stevia, lemon juice, and topped with TJ’s high fiber cereal. More pink lady apple on the side. 

Lunch: Salad with all sorts of delicious leftovers…organic baby greens, roast chicken, corn, black beans, onions, cucumber, and a dressing made of LF sour cream and salsa. Gosh…so photogenic.

Dinner: Salmon (marinated in soy sauce, ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame seed oil, and stevia- similar HERE) plus sauteed zucchini and onions, and Parmesan polenta. 

Polenta is highly underrated. I suggest you make some immediately, because it is as simple as oatmeal to make and is really delicious. Comfort food personified. 
Can I show you this book I found?
What is this about? Cooking while thinking about men? Or cooking to keep your man healthy? My book would be called, “Eat what I’m cooking or make it yourself” or “Healthy Cooking for Keeping your Husband Hot”.  

While we are on the topic of husbands and health, this week I had some blog traffic from the search term “husband got fat“… I hate to brag, but my husband is fit and fabulous. 
Exhibit A: 

I hate to disappoint, but you have been guided in the wrong direction.

Lastly, I need to share this recent creation. I’ve had it every day this week and I don’t plan on stopping.

The remainder of the morning coffee in the pot has been going in a clean, recycled jar (glass is BPA free, but beware of plastic containers) and refrigerated until I need an early afternoon pick me up. I simply add my new favorite coconut creamer (dairy-free), some stevia, a dash of cinnamon, and a handful of ice cubes. Put that lid on and shake it really hard and you will get something frothy and very delicious. Look at me being all earth savvy and recycling…
You’ve heard of Oats in a Jar….now you have iced coffee. Gosh, bloggers are so clever. 

If you wrote a cookbook, what would it be called? 

Have you made polenta?  What kind?

    That cookbook is a good idea and I’d be in the ‘if you don’t like it, cook for yourself’ camp :)
    My cook-book would be baked goods and called “Nicole’s Nummies”!

  • Questions!

    Sierra, love your blog :)
    Just wondering – do you work in Chicago? If so, what do you do? And if not, how do you spend your days?

    “Eat what I’m cooking or make it yourself” omg hahahaha. So true. I was cooking veggie burgers for my bf (yeahh umm we’ll get to that) and he was like “Oh what’s in that?” And as I was telling him I was thinking “Don’t you dare ask where the meat is buddy.” He didn’t! He’s a gem. And he enjoyed them. :)

    You’ve inspired me to ditch the coffeemate! Purchased three different types of coconut creamer and LOVE it! Thanks for the tip!
