Good morning, loves!
I am so happy with all of the positive feedback on yesterday’s post! Thank you!
Cait sure did make a great request for a post topic! If you have a request for me make sure you bring it to my attention! Next Tuesday I will be writing another reader’s request post and I promise you it’s a great topic, too! I can’t wait to share it!
But, today is What I Ate Wednesday, so here are my eats and a new recipe, too!
Breakfast – cottage cheese whipped up with avocado and vanilla stevia and topped with Uncle Sam cereal.
I thought I’d switch it up from my usual quinoa and cottage cheese bowl and crack open the box to this new-to-me cereal! I’ve had this cereal in my cupboard for a while now, but haven’t opened it until the other day. I’m not sure why because it’s great! I like having it with cold almond milk, too!
Mid-morning – two savoury muffins (new recipe coming at you next week!), chicken breast, and broccoli.
Lunch – PC 5 grain blend, shrimp, asparagus, roasted garlic, and extra virgin olive oil.
Mid-afternoon – chicken breast, 1 egg, baked sweet potato, and cucumber. This meal was taken to an appointment with me and eaten on the go!
Dinner – pan seared mahi mahi with citrus spice, roasted ginger lime sweet potatoes (recipe below), and asparagus.
Roasted Ginger Lime Sweet Potatoes
1 sweet potato, cubed
juice of 1/2 a lime
ginger powder (I didn’t measure, I just sprinkled liberally)
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 400.
Toss all of the ingredients together in a bowl until all potatoes are coated with lime juice, ginger, and oil.
Place on a lined baking tray and bake until done.
This was a delicious recipe! I combined two flavours that I love, ginger and lime, with one of my all time favourite foods, sweet potato. I usually have my sweet potato plain (see my mid afternoon snack) or coated in cinnamon, so this was new to me, but I loved it! It was slightly tangy, but absolutely delicious! I hope you give it a try for something different if you are a sweet potato and cinnamon person like myself
Bedtime (9:00 pm) – egg whites and hazelnut butter. I was nearing the end of my hazelnut butter, so I literally licked that jar clean
It’s been ages since I’ve had my eggies with nut butter and, oh, it was goooooood!
Love love love,
What was the best thing you’ve ate recently?
Have you done eggs and nut butter before?
