What I Ate Wednesday

Today I am participating in my first What I Ate Wednesday–#WIAW thanks to Peas & Crayons.  Thank you so much!  I’m putting together a combination of what I am eating today, new stuff I’ve tried, recipes I’ve made, etc.

I mentioned the Almond Dream Pumpkin Spice and I finally got a chance to try it–I put it in my coffee—YUM!  I love everything pumpkin but pumpkin coffee, for some reason, is not my thing.  I bought pumpkin coffee for home…I guess I forgot that I didn’t care for it last year sooooo I’m mixing it with my regular.  My son is into Starbucks frappuccinos and he tried the pumpkin.  He wasn’t crazy about so I finished it 😀  But honestly…meh.  However, this stuff in my coffee was good!  I’m going to find some other way to use it this weekend.

More pumpkin–the RXBAR.  It was a typical date/nuts & stuff but still VERY tasty!

I also mentioned my love and awesome find while out of town–kabocha!  So I have a LOT of kabocha.  We’ve had kabocha, kabocha and more kabocha 😀  Kabocha pancakes, kabocha muffins and kabocha brownies LOL.  And I still have more to use!  So the brownie recipe calls for sweet potato and I’ve always wanted to make them–super simple recipe so I used the kabocha instead, peanut butter and cocoa.  Well…they taste AMAZING!  But nothing like a brownie.  I’m not complaining  😉

So muffins is what was for breakfast!

Lunch is turkey.  I think I’ve mentioned before but Zaycon is the best.  For years I’ve ordered the chicken–40lbs–takes some work because I have to go home and portion and bag to freeze, but I love it.  I’ve also done salmon, beef, steaks, shrimp and my last purchase was turkey breast.  Meal prep could not be easier.  Comes in a bag.  Put it in a pan (frozen! no thinking involved LOL), into the oven, set timer for 2.5 hours.  Take out, cut bag and I have several meals for the week.  I love it!  Just click above and see if they come to your area–I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Dinner will probably be leftovers.  I made these stuffed peppers at my son’s request.  Super easy to make them healthy–used my Lifetime cheese I mentioned in my previous post!

I tried a few other new things…the replacement for Coke Zero:

It’s ok.  I’m a diet coke fan anyway so no loss for me.

These Celsius drinks I keep hearing about:Celsius

This was ok.  I think I’ll forever be a Monster fan.  I just can’t help it!

And saving the best for last, the Oreos!

I had one.  Such self control! HA!  Definitely 10/10.  I’m a fan of cookie butter period.

So share with me!  What did you eat today?  Any good finds?  Recipes?
