What We Ate Thursday: Week 3

25 Jan

Happy Friday! Hope you all have fun plans for this weekend. We are going to a new Indian restaurant tonight with our mom and step dad for dinner. Of course we already looked up the menu but are having a hard time deciding what to get because it all looks so interesting and delicious. One thing we’re trying for sure is bread made out of chickpea flour!

Here’s what we ate yesterday.

Breakfast was our usual oatmeal. This morning we topped our whipped banana oats with bees knees peanut butter (featured in our post dedicated to peanut butter yesterday), strawberries, blackberries, a couple slices of banana, hemp plus granola, natures sprinkles (aka chai seeds) and a spoonful of our strawberry fig jam! This jam was a Tj Maxx find and it is delicious! A couple weeks ago we spread it on pork chops and it was surprisingly awesome! You never know till you try right?

Today for lunch we made our own homemade summer rolls. The first time we has these was at a Vietnamese restaurant near our house. These were filled with shredded cabbage, carrots, pepper slices, baked chicken, lettuce and dipped into Trader Joe’s peanut sauce. We will definitely be making these again in the near future.

For an afternoon snack we had Okios raspberry greek yogurt topped with love crunch granola (also featured in another blog post), kiwi slices, and blackberries

We originally had planned to make homemade pizza but when dinner time rolled around we were craving something else. We had a bunch of tomatoes that needed used soon so we sliced them in half, drizzled them with balsamic and baked them at 450 for 30 minutes. Then we made homemade bean burgers and added a side of steamed brussels sprouts. This was soooo filling! But being full on veggies is never a bad thing!

Late night snack was a mug of light coffee ice cream topped with a handful of pumpkin flax granola. Yum! Just a tiny indulgence 😉
