I had planned to make some fun recipes for WIAW this week, but life happens and Trader Joe's doesn't carry miso paste :(
Yesterday's eats were pretty plain, but sometimes we all have those plain food kinda days.
For breakfast, I had 2 eggs and 1 egg white + my morning green smoothie from the new Lorna Jane cookbook. I cut her portions in half for smoothies.
Here are the ingredients I use:
- 1/2 pear (diced and cored)
- 1/2 small cucumber
- 1 "cutie" clementine
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup fresh spinach
- 1/4 cup coconut water
I wasn't super hungry at my morning snack time, so I just grabbed a handful of trail mix from the stash I keep in my desk.
Lunch was very simple -- sauteed green beans and edamame + cooked lentils. I didn't have the ingredients or time the night before to prep anything fancier.
Quest sent me a thank you box of Quest Bars for running the giveaway a couple weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier about that. This is the lemon bar, and, holy cow, it's amazing. As usual, I microwaved it for 12 seconds and ate it warm.
Today was leg day for us at the gym, so we had to be pretty quick about our dinner prep. I snacked on carrots and hummus while I cooked.
Dinner was simple mustard baked chicken and sauteed broccoli.
I didn't take a photo of it, but I also drank my BCAAs during the leg workout, and my whey protein powder afterwards.
Question of the day:
What are the typical simple meals you make when you're in a time crunch?
