This week has been really busy with some unexpected surprises, but I wanted to make sure I posted my WIAW so that it can hopefully inspire you all to have some healthy meals and keep up with my goal of regular posting!
I was looking at some of Diane Sanfilippo’s posts on Instagram
, and she had some pictures of avocado toast, which looked so delicious! She uses Canyon Gluten Free bread, but my grocery store didn’t have it, so I got Udi’s gluten-free millet-chia bread. Gluten free bread is tiny, and the serving size on the package was 2 pieces, so I counted it as one carb serving. I toasted the bread and topped it with mashed avocado, tomatoes, and some pink Himalayan salt, and put some eggs on the side for protein.

Wednesday was a big day for me, so instead of saving my Shakeology for the afternoon, I had it in the morning. Yes, this is Shakeology, not a big bowl of ice cream! I’ve been playing with the ratios and methods of mixing it up, and I’ve found 1 cup almond or coconut milk, 1 cup frozen fruit, and 1 scoop Shakeology blended using my immersion blender makes it more like ice cream. The same method using while running the blender for a few minutes makes it more like a mousse. This was vanilla Shakeology, unsweetened coconut milk, and strawberries. Valentine’s Day is coming up, so I put it in a romantic tea cup.

Lunch was a quick salad of leftover ground beef seasoned with chili powder, coriander, garlic powder, and onion powder on top of field greens and grape tomatoes. The dressing is homemade salsa ranch: equal parts mayo, Greek yogurt, and salsa and seasoned to taste with rice wine vinegar, garlic and onion powders, dried dill, and salt and pepper.

Mid-afternoon I had an apple with 2 teaspoons of sunflower seed butter. Please forgive how awful the jar looks, but this is the brand I’ve been using.

Dinner was a new recipe that will be posted soon!I had 1 roasted chicken thigh with zucchini, yellow summer squash, white sweet potatoes, herbs, and sun dried tomatoes.

I was dragging a little after a tough day of using lots of brain power and exercising (The Master’s Hammer and Chisel: Chisel Balance) so I had an extra serving of protein with some Greek yogurt, thawed frozen cherries, vanilla extract, and stevia. Not pretty, but so tasty.
