Zucchini & Chicken: What I’ve Been Eating Lately

Hi guys! The past few days have been crazy. Amazing, but crazy. We are 4-0 and play in the semis this morning – cross your fingers!

I totally forgot to photograph a whole day of food recently so today is a selection of some recent faves. I also want to share what I packed for Detroit/have been eating while I’ve been here (it’s honestly not that exciting but whatevs) so I hope to have that up on Friday. Until then, here’s what I’ve been eating lately (I’ve tried not to make this redundant to Instagram).

Post-workout smoothie (almond milk, banana, protein powder) 

 all dayyyy everyyyy day. Well, when I workout. Obvs. Thanks to my amazing sister, my smoothie making life has been drastically changed for the better: how did I not know that my blender comes with another blade that blends with the travel cups?! What does this mean? Less clean up. Boo yeah.

Breakfasts have been kinda boring: mostly grilled chicken

with some sort of veggie or some of Mom’s veggie/pea soup. This was a yummy breakfast of chicken sausages, spinach and apple.

And I have totally gotten back on the “zeggs” train. Zucchini + eggs = zeggs. Strange but good. I was obsessed with this breakfast back in the fall but was making it in the microwave with egg whites. Now I make it on the stove with the wholeeee egg (duh) and it tastes wayyyy better. I updated the recipe to include both versions here. Trust me: don’t knock it until you try it.

Zeggs Update

Lunches have been whatever bowl of food concoction I put together. Lately, I’ve been totally obsessed with this combo: ground beef, brussels sprouts, spinach, spaghetti squash and tomato sauce

I took this lunch on-the-go: shredded chicken

, cauliflower and zucchini “rice”, spaghetti squash and a few cherry tomatoes. I just made the chicken then sauteed it with the veggies in coconut oil. Typical bowl of food. Plus a Larabar.

I am still obsessed with the grill and it makes for such a quick dinner: beef burger, sweet potato, zucchini and a nectarine. I keep my grilling game very simple – typically just olive oil, salt and pepper. I seriously don’t know what I will do when it’s too cold to grill.

I also made my chicken bites

. I had them for dinner with salsa, sweet potato fries
 and zucchini (I broiled the zucc in the oven but it came out kinda soggy). I made the bites with flaxseed meal this time around – you can make them with almond four/meal too.

Another good dinner featured my easy baked salmon

, cauliflower rice with shredded zucchini and a sweet potato.

After dinner eats (aka dessert) has been a) a sweet potato (gosh I love sweet potatoes) b) some fruit or c) a few chocolate chip cookies

straight out of the freezer… they legit taste like cookie dough! And please excuse my chipped nails.

And one night after dinner I had my first bowl of oatmeal since before my Whole 30, which would have been in like February! Anyways, I had a craving so satisfied it with some rolled oats, a banana and almond butter. It honestly did not taste as good as I thought it would but I felt fine digestion wise.

Time to keep winning! Over and out.

 

Questions of the day…

Have you been OD-ing on zucchini too? What have you been chowing down on lately?

  1. 4-0 – that is awesome!! Keep going girls!
    Love that you had a bowl of oatmeal as a dessert – great stuff – and so glad it did not affect you digestion wise :)
    You will be grilling in gloves, scarf and a hat in Winter ;)

  2. Good luck in the semis this morning! Oh my gosh before I even saw your questions I was planning to tell you how I’m eating ALL the zucchini lately! There is some kind of surplus going on and they are all gigantic and cheap and delicious.

  3. Everything looks so good!! Yeah, I’m going to be so sad when it’s so cold out to grill… I’ll still try to go out there anyway (we did it in the dead of winter last year, but it sucked). ;) I’ve got to try zeggs sometime, they look good!

  4. I have had some serious zucchini this summer, hence the chocolate bread I made..had to mix it up! You have a sweet variety going. I’ve been on a green bean kick. I like the crunch cuz I’m a sucker for texture. :) 4-0!? Keep it up ladies!! xoxo

  5. So funny because I actually have been doing a bit more zucchini lately! I go in phases with it where I eat it with everything and then get pretty sick of it. The zeggs look awesome! And that breakfast looks so good. I love sausage and apples! And we must have been thinking alike since I did a “what I’m eating lately” today instead of one day of food :)

  6. I have to try eggs with zucchini! I add spinach to my sweet egg scrambles but zucchini would be great too! I’m right there with you on the oat craving lately. Funny we are on the same wave length! I made some for my son the other day and tried a few bites but unfortunately my tummy was not too happy after. I don’t think they were the gluten free oats so maybe those would be better….
