WIAW: Something Old, Something New

Howdy!

I want to thank you all for your support and advice yesterday. It’s assuring to hear that a lot of other people are going through similar experiences— it just goes to show how hard it really is to rest more and eat more!

Unlike last week’s WIAW, which was all about recurring food themes, I’m going to attempt to bring a little more variety to the table with some new foods and some foods that I’m bringin’ back from the past. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been posting meals like it’s my job. Maybe one of these days I’ll actually post a picture of something other than food… But food is usually more interesting than, say, my face? Or the generic sunset/fresh snow/cat-all-up-in-my-grill picture? Not that those aren’t fun to look at though! I don’t know where I’m going with this. I’m done. Food pictures.

New-ish: Greek yogurt with sliced banana, a strawberry banana muffin, chia seeds, hemp hearts, and a big spoonful of pepita sun seed butter. This was so good that I had it again the next morning…and again yesterday morning.

New: Sushi date with a couple girl friends! Eel cucumber roll and Fantastic Roll (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, avocado, and marbled seaweed with a special dipping sauce). YUMFREAKINGTASTIC.

Bringin’ it back: Kylie’s Whole Grain Crust Pizza Quiche! I made this once before, and I thought it was due time to make it again. I don’t make a recipe more than once very often!

DSC_7476

New: Homemade whole wheat crust margarita pizza! I was ridiculously close to tossing the dough when I made it, but I’m glad I stuck with it. It turned out quite tasty!

A slice + side salad with some on-the-brink-of-too-smelly leftover salmon. 

Desserts

Bringin’ it back: PEANUT BUTTER BANANA SOFT SERVE!!! With some Greek yogurt for added creaminess and protein. I’ll be adding the Greek yogurt from now on— so good!

I also want to add that my “little sister” from dance company, Lilly, tried overnight oats for the first time and LOVED them! I was a little too excited.

In a sunflower seed butter jar, making it the optimal experience.

It was certainly nice to add some more fun flavors to my palate this week. Although, I could probably live off of just bananas, yogurt, avocado, brown rice, and grilled chicken.

Happy Wednesday! Yesterday was a half day because of the snow storm, and today may or may not be a two-hour delay…(I’m typing this on Tuesday night). Either way, stay safe and warm wherever you are!

So tell me:

Did you try any new foods this week?

Have you ever tried making a homemade pizza?

What kind of Instagram photos do you enjoy seeing the most?
