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:
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?
