Hi friends! You know what time it is.
I kinda missed the memo that Jenn‘s theme this month is “spooky snacks” & “healthy Halloween treats.” Fitting of course. Unfortunately my snacks aren’t spooky (I don’t think…) and I’ve yet to create any healthy Halloween treats… forgive me?!
Nonetheless, here are a some of my recent eats.
I’ve been having my fair share of oatmeal and overnight oats. My favorite bowl was regular oatmeal cooked with a whole zucchini, cinnamon and topped with golden raisins. Kinda like zeggs.
Some non-oat breakfasts…
Cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and sliced banana… yes there is toast under all that nanner.
Chickpea flour pancake with hazelnut butter and pear… ugh I am still not totally happy with this recipe either. Working on it friends!
Dinners have been chicken, chicken and yup, more chicken.
A quick grilled chicken salad with spinach, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and carrots.
Thanks to dad’s pro-star chicken skills, oven roasted chicken with broccoli, peppers and cherry tomatoes.
I planned to bake chicken and veggies on Monday but that takes awhile and I was starving aka hangry after work. So I used up some leftover grilled chicken, put together a salad (spinach, peppers and hemp hearts) and steamed a sweet potato… then proceeded to cover it with copious amounts of cinnamon. Winner, winner, ANOTHER chicken dinner!
Okay… kindaaaa getting repetitive… but A+ for protein and veggies!
I finally found Health Warrior chia bars… pretty good but the seeds obviously got stuck in my teeth.
So I’ve been mostly sticking to my favorite bar… the Simply Bar in maple pecan.
I have also been going to town on banana chips… straight from the bag, with PB, dipped in Wax Orchards chocolate sauce… it’s been a satisfying post-dinner snack.
And obviously lots of fruit… apples, pears, bananas. Best fruit snack lately: canary melon and pineapple bowl (tupperware)
So am I going to turn into a chicken?
I hope not because I have seriously felt great since changing up my eats based on my tummy troubles and food sensitivity test. I do think it is too early to tell — I’m aiming for two solid months in order to asses. I miss chocolate chips a lot… anyone know of chocolate that is dairy AND sugar free?!
Questions of the day…
Do you ever find yourself eating the same/similar things?
What have you been snacking on lately?
