#WIAW- Top Eats For The Week

My FIRST What I Ate Wednesday. I consider this an accomplishment.

Let’s start with breakfast this morning which consisted of Overnight Oats.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. flax seed
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 banana
  • 10 chocolate chip morsels
  • 1 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter (mixed in the morning)

Super delish- and paired with a limited edition Golden French Toast cup of Keurig coffee! Absolute heaven.

Lunch:

Hot Banana Pepper Organic Beef Salad

This was easy to whip up and it’s basically a crushed up beef patty over top. Pressed for time today. I used a little bit of the banana pepper juice (mostly vinegar and water) as the dressing over top. Quite tasty!

Dinner:

Spicy Pull-Apart Chicken

I am proud to announce I have popped my slow cooking cherry! Since I’m all about motivation on Mondays, I took my own dose of medicine and dabbled with my mini slow cooker. These are the fantastic results:

 

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 thin sliced chicken breasts (or thighs)
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • Worcestershire sauce (if you have it)- I didn’t
  • 1/2 can of organic four cheese pasta sauce
  • sea salt
  • 1/2 diced yellow onion
  • dash of pepper
  • 2 tbsp. vinegar
  • 1 basil leaf

I put all the ingredients in, stirred for about 4-5 minutes, and then threw in the chicken. Came back in 4.5 hours assuming something must have gone wrong but was thrown for a loop. Not too spicy, just enough flavor, and melt in your mouth chicken!

Here’s how I plan to wind my wednesday down: Mint. Used for mint infusion tea. The price is right too at only $3 for a huge stockpile. (This will last me for two weeks!)

 

 

 

 

 

Dessert:

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies W/ Semi-Sweet Swirled Morsels

*A piggyback off of Chocolate Covered Katie*

This totally went on in my kitchen today. Created more mess than the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal! Shockingly, only a blender was involved so the opposite should have occurred…

Shout out to the world’s flyest grandmother– she’s 84 years young today!

This one’s for you, G-ma:

So what are your favorite go-to snacks or meals when in a bind for time? Do you adhere to a strict diet or go balls to the wall crazy?

 Peace, love, and cheers to winning Wednesdays!
