I’ve been horrible about actually taking the time to put together a meal lately, so I decided to make a pact with myself. At least two nights a week, I will prepare something. It can be for lunch or dinner and can be eaten at any time, but I must take the time to put together a meal that requires more than two ingredients. (I can’t tell you how many times I qualified cottage cheese in a pita as a meal.)
So tonight, to start the challenge, I whipped up spaghetti squash with sautéed zucchini and feta cheese. Mmm.
Ok, challenge aside, let’s do a WIAW recap. (I’ve mixed several of the meals from Monday and Tuesday!)
Breakfast: Strawberry Poptart Oatmeal
I know this sounds weird, but when I first started eating healthy, the one thing I missed the most was indulging in Toaster Strudel or Poptarts every day. (Blame my best friends and Mother.) So after years of trying to perfect my oatmeal dish, I found that mixing strawberries with almond milk and a little Splenda made the perfect oatmeal for me. Plus, when it first comes out of the microwave, it smells like a strawberry Poptart! So simple, yet so good.
Snack: Blueberry Bliss Luna bar
Don’t judge me. I have no time to eat.
Snack: Handful of MMs with a pack of Butter Finger Snackerz
Ok, so I NEVER eat stuff like this during the week but a) I didn’t have time to snack at work b) Alex only had these treats or another Luna bar c) I went for a 3 mile run afterwards. Don’t judge me.
Dinner: roasted cauliflower, carrots and sweet potatoes
I definitely dipped the sweet potatoes in ketchup!
Snack: Spice Chai Latte
