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?
