WIAW: Hello Summer

26 Jun

I don’t have to go to work for two months!!!!!!!!!! Baaaahahahahaaaaaa

Okay, I’ll stop bragging. I know you’re jealous. I would be too. Should have been a teacher!!

Yesterday’s eats were mostly devised in terms of thinking about how I could use my new stainless steel pans!! So excited I finally got them with some of the gift cards I got for my shower. Awesome!

Peppers

I thought I’d share my eats yesterday via Jenn over at Peas and Crayons in WIAW!

What I Ate Wednesday: Sensible Snacking

My whole eating schedule has kind of changed and is out of whack due to the fact I’m sleeping in later and not going to the gym at 4:30 anymore. And there’s really no restriction on when I can eat so I’ve just been going with the flow (I know, I’ve got it tough).

Yesterday morning I got up and had a handful of almonds before heading over to the gym for a swim. Waaaaayyy more people in the pool than there are at 5:00 am. I might have to get up earlier if I want to continue swimming.

I was wrinkly when I got out and worked up quite an appetite. For ‘breakfast’ I sautéed some peppers, onion and garlic with some cumin and chili powder and ate it with two eggs and a sweet potato with coconut butter. Random but good.

breakfast

There really isn’t a word for the deliciousness of coconut butter with sweet potato.

This kept me full for awhile….it wasn’t until around 3 pm I was ready for a snack.

snack

Granny Smith apple with almond and peanut butter.

Soon enough, after I went to pick my my share for the CSA, It was time to start dinner.

I used some leftover roast chicken to throw together a coconut chicken curry with peppers & onions over cauliflower rice.

Looks gross, tastes good. I love curry.

Later in the night I whipped up my now favorite snack- carrot cake pudding a la PaleOMG.

I might go out on a limb and say this is my FAVORITE blog to pull recipes from. They always turn out delicious and I’ve used several of hers multiple times.

    There was a time that I seriously considered becoming a teacher just so I would have the summers off. Instead I decided to be an accountant… completely opposite in retrospect! My mom, dad and aunt are teachers though so I grew up having them all around for the summer. That will be so nice!

    Congrats on the new pans. Very exciting indeed.

    And PaleOMG is great. I just love looking through her archives of recipes even if I can’t really eat any of them. Haha.

    Your eats look great! I’m definitely jealous of your summers off. I work at a University, I get a lot of days off especially around holidays but still have to work the summer.

    Wow, your breakfast looks amazing! Also, yay for having the summer off! I work at a college and unfortunately we have to work all summer long – I’m a tad jealous!

    Definitely need to try your breakfast combo. All the flavors sound perfect together.

    Yet I find myself spending a lot of my summer preparing for school. 🙂 At a more relaxing pace of course!
