What I Ate Thursday. On A Monday.

I was never about good timing.  I am a very punctual person, but when it comes to assignments or projects I procrastinate a lot.  Hence, the title of this post.

This is almost everything I ate last Thursday.  This is probably the most ‘daily eats’ of a post you’ll see of me.  It’s just way too difficult to live a normal life and blog every single spoonful that goes in my mouth!

Breakfast was a giant sliced apple, half on top of two slices of cinnamon raisin toast with almond butter and ‘coconut creme’ (2 tbsps of Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour and 2 tbsps water and stevia to taste).  The extra coconut creme was on the side for dippage.

Lunch was a bit slapdash but so delicious!

I believe this day I had 1/2 an orange mixed into a mix green salad with sunflower seeds, cranberries, chickpeas, 1/4 an avocado and a cranberry/orange dressing I bought from my grocery store, mixed with balsamic.  On the side I had a pita stuffed with vegan cheese, strawberry jam and spinach and the rest of the orange.  Random but nourishing and filling.

Unpictured snack was a bunch of dates and a Kashi bar before cardio/yoga.

Dinner ended up being AWESOME.  I had bought a tin of Starkist crab meat and mixed it together with 1/4 c egg whites, 1.5 tbsps of oat bran, seasonings and tomato paste and cooked it on the stove until crispy.  Unfortunately I forgot to add the magic ingredient: SALT.  Therefore, these were slightly bland. Still good though! I served them with parsnip fries and asparagus.  This is pretty much my go-to dinner as of late.  I love having a lot of different parts to my meals.  And I’m entirely sick of soups and toast for dinner…now that my stomach is normal, I can’t even think about the gallons of soup I ate this winter! I think my hands are still orange from all the butternut squash!

 And right now I’m chowing down on this.  Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats.  Not as good as a Cheesequake from DQ, but still awesome.

Strawberry Cheesequake Oat Bran
The night before, combine the following:
1/3 c oat bran
1 tbsp flax meal
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 c almond milk
1/4 c cottage cheese (I used Breakstone’s 4% for the milkfat…cottage cheese doesn’t seem to bother my stomach)
4 fresh strawbs
1/2 banana

Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.  This morning I topped it with a spoonful of Swiss Muesli, sunflower seed butter from Trader Joe’s (BEST NUT BUTTER EVER), a little crumble of some homemade cashew butter (taken directly from The Wannabe Chef).  It tastes EXACTLY like a sugar cookie.  Dangerous.

Off to finish my coffee and run some errands! Happy Monday! Yoga tonight, cannot wait!
