Looks like we all love some cookie dough brownie cake!
But I do eat more than cake 😉 Although I think desserts should be in it’s own food group, do you agree?
I have been loving fall/winter produce!
Roasted brussel sprouts, turnips, and beets! Coated in coconut oil with spices (cinnamon, coriander, chili powder, cumin)
Of course lots of squash eating!
Wanted to share a new thing I am loving Annie’s Horsereadish Mustard.
The other day I mixed 1/2 avocado, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, and 2 tsp horseradish mustard. I enjoyed inside it inside a nori wrap.
I finally got a kabocha squash to roast up!! After slicing the squash,I coated the slices with coconut oil, cinnamon, and cardamom!Baked it at 350 degrees in oven for about 30 minutes or till tender.
Dessert makes up for it!
now for Lori’s eats:
Post workout still enjoying simple banana perfect fit protein smoothies.
Next I make my coffee.
Love Allegro organic coffee from Whole Foods.
Little bit later I come back to eat my carbs…in forms of winter squashes, probably the only meal that I get super excited for.
here I enjoyed kabocha squash with some steamed broccoli
here are three other days meals: the bottom two I ate some squash with 1 tbsp of tahini, and the picture on top I enjoyed some squash with a side of chia seed yogurt pudding with more squash.
Been enjoying this bag of swiss chard from Trader Joe’s.
Lunches have been looking very similar lately with two whole eggs, a green (usually swiss chard or kale) sautéed in some coconut oil, along with shredded carrots and any vegetables I have on hand (like peppers, onions, broccoli, brussel sprouts, mushrooms)
During the late afternoon I have been enjoying some random snacks. Yesterday, I had an apple, little bit later came back to eat some cucumber with 1 tbsp tahini.
After that apple cucumber tahini snack, I was still a little hungry and wanted something warm. Michelle thought of making a simple hot cocoa with adding in some perfect fit protein to it. Brillant idea! One thing I must say about hot cocoa for us is that we tend to only want a few sips then it ‘gets to us’ .
For some reason the rich cocoa flavor after awhile turns us off in a way, so we have been trying to make a version of hot cocoa that we can actually drink the whole thing. We use water instead of milk (non-dairy), as again the heaviness of milk tends to get to us, so water has been perfect. And now we have been playing around with how much cocoa we put in it, and seem to be liking 1 teaspoon worth. The addition of protein powder was nice too! I actually drank the whole 2 cups 🙂 I was so happy.
The other day I enjoyed chia seed yogurt pudding with some pumpkin puree added to it and coconut butter, topped with yacon syrup and lots of cinnamon. Similar to this pumpkin chia pudding recipe.
Here is 3 different nights dinners. Usually keep it simple with just a green, veggies, fish, avocado (one night had avocado pudding, picture on top) and coconut oil. And a few nights I add 1 tbsp of hemp seeds to my dinners. Forgot how much I love them.
A few nights ago I enjoyed a thin mint cake and made myself another one last night! Can’t stop eating them!
Glad we are not the only ones enjoying our individual thin mint cake
More pumpkin fudge lovin’ going on
So yay from the looks of our eats we have been eating like twins.
Who else likes hot cocoa? Anyone have a good recipe? Anyone else eating similar eats to us? What is your favorite spice to coat your squashes with?
