Happy Wednesday! How is everyone's week going?
Mine's a liiiittle crazed, so I'm gonna get right to it: a day of eats! This food lineup is from yesterday (Tuesday, 11/17). I got to assemble all of my meals and snacks at home (hence the post title). No outside purchases necessary - not even a run to Starbucks!
I was up early so I decided to run a few errands and clean the kitchen (?) Not sure where that productivity urge came from, but I went with it. Breakfast was Glutenfreeda granola with Manitoba hemp hearts and Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I decided not to have coffee yesterday. I'm trying to skip it on days when I feel like I don't need it.
Lunch was leftover pork chop, leftover roasted butternut squash and cauliflower and chopped apple tossed with baby spinach and balsamic vinaigrette. This salad was THE BOMB.COM. I had the rest of the apple with some nut thins and honey.
I headed to the gym to put in a few hours of work. I stayed longer than I thought I would, and I left totally ravenous. I ate a Fiber One bar on my way home.
We've started using Plated, a meal delivery service similar to Blue Apron. Last night, the recipe was cheesy chicken enchiladas. I wasn't super psyched about it, because I'm trying to cut back on both dairy and gluten. I have to admit, the chopping was a bitch but otherwise, it was actually kind of fun to make! I loved rolling up the enchiladas and lining them up in this baking dish. I like when cooking feels artful.
I limited myself to one (the "serving size" was three) and it was dee-lish-us. Totally filling, too. I'm thinking I'd like to try making my own version of this with gluten-free tortillas and all veggies...
I finished the day on a sweet note with these Glutino peppermint yogurt covered pretzels that I discovered at Whole Foods over the weekend. So, so good.
Have a great day, everyone! Sorry to keep it short but I will be back soon. Thank you for reading. MWAH!
