Happy WIAW everyone! So happy to be participating again this week.
This week’s WIAW is actually what I ate today (Wednesday), not my eats from yesterday or last week. Today. See? I’m getting better about posting now that I have a routine.
Is there anything more glorious than a big bowl of fresh fruit, yogurt & raw oats first thing in the morning? How about with the sun coming in? Taking this photo made me happy. Eating this bowl made me satisfied.
This bowl of plain Greek yogurt + peaches + strawberries + blueberries + bananas + raw oats kept me full for 4 hours or more. It was so delicious, I can’t wait to go to bed tonight so I can wake up and do the same thing tomorrow. Am I weird?
When lunch rolled around, I wasn’t that hungry, but decided to take advantage of my fridge full of fresh produce. I find that when I fill my fridge with the rainbow, I eat all that produce, and love it more than a usual sandwich lunch. This bowl contains a bed of arugula + spinach, sautéed yellow tomatoes, zucchini, bell pepper, fresh sliced avocado and a fried egg. A little bit of everything, I guess. It was yummmm.
Step 1: Slice brussels sprouts in half, place on baking sheet, drizzle coconut oil, salt & pepper. Roast for 10 mins on 400 degrees, flipping over half way through.
Step 2: Fry 1 egg, place over brussels, poke yolk to let the egg run.
There you have it! Roasted brussels sprouts with fried egg and the natural egg yolk sauce. For some of you, you may be repulsed. But for other egg lovers out there–you know this is the good stuff.
I had seen this particular dish on food blogs and fit blogs and I knew I had to try it. It was filling and nutritious. My other dish last night was a baked sweet potato topped with plain Greek yogurt and a dusting of cinnamon. I usually roast my sweet potatoes and dip them in ketchup, so I thought this would be a new fun way to enjoy sweet potatoes. For some reason, this way was much too sweet for me, I could only take a few bites, then threw the rest out. BUMMER.
So it was dessert time. I made a 3 min chocolate cake in a mug!
I found this recipe in an US magazine while getting my toes done. I would have cooked this in the microwave for only 2 minutes as this ended up being too dry.
