I noticed the other day, as I was packing up some of my food to bring to work, that I’ve been on a bit of a “repeat” mode when it comes to a lot of what I’m eating these days.
As you guys know, I don’t document all of my food anywhere near the way I used to back in the day. I don’t miss blogging like that, honestly (it was time consuming AND just exhausting sometimes!), but I do miss getting the chance to share some of the things I’m eating and loving.
So today I thought, why not do just that?! Here’s a look at what I’ve been eating on repeat these past few days/weeks/months…
Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter
I buy mine at iHerb (seriously, love that site) and it’s just so. darn. good. I mean, the stuff is good on anything, but lately I’ve been loving it with bananas, or spread on graham crackers with some mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top for an after dinner snack/ dessert.
Annie’s Bunny Grahams
I originally “bought these for Lucas,” but let’s be real…
They’re totally for his mama.
I recently bought a bag of mini sweet potatoes for something like, $2.00, at Price Chopper and we’ve been working our way though them since. Sometimes I go through phases where I sort of forget about just how GOOD and versatile those things are. I love them with meals but they also make a fabulous snack (go the savory route with some black beans and salsa, or a little sweeter with some peanut butter and honey!).
Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I knew it was going to be dangerous making these cookies over the weekend, and so far, I’ve been right. I’ve been averaging about 2-3 per day since they’ve been made…they’re just too easy to grab right from the freezer! I guess it’s a good thing they’re really not that bad for ya.
Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal
But I guess that goes without saying. With the way my current obsession is going, I foresee this being made every week! Has anyone else given it a shot yet?
Cara Cara Oranges
If there ever was a variety of fruit that really stood out from all the rest (at least for me), I’d absolutely have to say it’s the cara cara orange. These things are just so sweet and juicy, and absolutely perfect this time of year. I’ve been buying a bag of them each week and we usually have no problem working our way through it.
Salads for Lunches
Surprisingly enough, I’m still on a salad kick for lunch. I’ve been prepping them on the weekends (making them for both Jay and myself), which makes it super easy to pack up during the week. I just add a couple extra toppings (lately, it’s grilled chicken tenders, avocado, and goat cheese), pack my dressing (and occasionally croutons) on the side, and I’m good to go!
Yogurt for Dessert
As much as it pains me to say it, I really just can’t be eating a huge bowl of ice cream every night. We were getting to the point where a 1/2 gallon of ice cream would last 3 days in our house, and it was just too much. So to replace my ice cream, I’ve been devouring these little makeshift desserts which typically start with a vanilla or plain yogurt (liquid stevia added if it’s plain), a tablespoon of PB2, a sleeve of a graham cracker, and lots of mini chocolate chips. It satisfies the sweet tooth and has a little extra staying power, too. Deeeee-lish.
I’ve reignited a habit that had been tamed down for a bit…but lately, I just can’t get enough of my favorite Starbucks coffee order (grande blonde roast, 1 pump caramel, 1/2 pump white mocha, nonfat milk). They’re owning me…but I’m earning my free drink rewards, so that’s gotta count for something, right?
Fruit & “Stuff” in my Water
I’ve said this before, but I almost always end up drinking so much more water during the day when I have fruit or other things in it. For the past few days, I’ve been all about the lemon-cucumber-mint combo, and it’s rocking my world. I’m sure it’s a combo of the add-ins, plus just the extra water consumption in general, but I’m feeling great. Plus, more water = more trips to the bathroom, which = more steps taken in a day. Win-win!
So how about you guys? What have you been eating (or drinking) on repeat these days?
