Hi friends! I’m glad many of you found my Intuitive Eating While Working from Home post useful. If you have any other intuitive eating or nutrition myth busting questions/topics you would like me to write about, please let me know!
And now, here’s some of what we ate this week. First up: lunch.
We had a lot of sandwiches for lunch this week, mostly with turkey, cheese, broccoli slaw, mustard, hummus, and arugula.
If you like sandwiches and want more ideas, see this post: Mix + Match Healthy Sandwich Recipes.
I also made us a Mediterranean-themed quinoa salad for lunch one day and ate the leftovers again the next.
It had quinoa, chickpeas, a little leftover brown rice, chopped kale, feta cheese, diced bell pepper, cucumber, chopped olives, and a homemade balsamic vinaigrette with extra lemon.
Here are a couple products I’ve been loving lately: the SimplyNature (from ALDI) 90 second Seven Grains and Fillo’s brand microwave beans (from Mom’s Organic Market, although they are sold elsewhere too).
The combination makes for an easy lunch! I added some microwave-wilted spinach underneath, plus some diced bell pepper and avocado.
Riese had a deconstructed version.
For dinners this week, we’ve been on the Blue Apron train. One night we had some really good burgers (made with beef and lots of chopped spinach) with roasted potatoes, and we added an unpictured side salad as well.
Another night we had roasted broccoli with pickled cucumber, rice, and an Asian-y salmon.
It reminded me a bit of my Sheet Pan Asian Salmon with veggies – one of my all-time fave blog recipes!
Last night was our final Blue Apron meal – a cilantro-infused chicken dish with rice. Yummy!
We also did takeout one night for dinner – we grabbed salads from Stomping Ground. It was a nice fresh and light meal for a warm evening!
The salads had chicken, beets, arugula, cheese, hummus, and a lemony dressing, and we added some toasted leftover bread (it came with the pizza we ordered over the weekend) to the mix too. The bread was really good with the hummus – Matt brushed it with olive oil and sprinkled on a little salt before toasting it and it was good as new.
I will leave you with a funny picture of Riese attempting to offer Story Time, but her audience was not exactly super engaged. 😉
We also had fun this week painting some shells with watercolor paint. This probably only entertained her for about 5 minutes, but hey, I tried.
Have a nice weekend – see y’all back here on Monday.
