meals in review, week of 09/16/2013

| No TrackBacks

This last week was a little less creative, as I battled an upset tummy, but I was craving fruits and veggies for comfort, so that was a bonus.

What did YOU eat that you really loved last week?

as last week, my main meal is listed, with other noteworthy meals or snacks in italics below. :)

Monday, 9/16: OUT at Subway - I got my normal double chicken salad with cucumbers, spinach, peppers, onions, peppechini, light cheese, light oil, vinegar, pepper, and oregano. Paired it with a bag of fresh apples. protein shake: tried my first green smoothie (on instagram). lunch: turkey celery salad with apple and instead of mayo, used yogurt and cherry almond balsamic vinegar. documented the regular Trader Joe's haul (on instagram)

Tuesday, 9/17: cauliflower pizza - a crust made out of riced cauliflower, cottage cheese, light mozzerella, and then topped with a lower carb spaghetti sauce, turkey pepperoni, red pepper, onions, and served with a salad. E had a more traditional pizza using a ball of pizza dough from Safeway and his favorite toppings. protein shake: another green smoothie. treat: becoming a coffee lover with a weak espresso, soy, and sugar feed caramel syrup. breakfast: overnight oats (or rather, just over-several-hour oats!) with pumpkin. lunch: corn on the cob and chicken with my tomatilla sauce over it.

Wednesday, 9/18: spaghetti squash with maple vege-sausage patties and an assortment of veggies. last meal: yogurt with pumpkin and homemade granola.

Thursday, 9/19: Curry Celery soup (on theredkitchen) served with a salad with hard boiled egg whites and plum pieces. lunch: buffalo chicken salad. treat: baked healthy banana cookies (recipe on Brooke Not on a Diet: Banana Bread Cookies, my mods on instagram).

Friday, 9/20: Roasted veggies with meatballs - roasted cauliflower and then added some zucchini and leftover corn off the cob and Trader Joe's Meatless meatballs, served with cottage cheese (on instagram). breakfast: I started out the morning with healthy snacks in line to get a new iPhone with my brother! lunch: spaghetti squash with chicken and paprika. afternoon snack: egg white omelet

Saturday, 9/21: impromptu outing, where we found a restaurant not far from the Portland max train line to visit called Tasting East (found on yelp). OMG, the flavors were divine. We got a bunch of small things and shared (on instagram), and used chopsticks. I had a Garlic Ginger chicken, and E tried a tofu coconut curry. We had Green beans cooked dry in a wok with garlic, and an amazing Salt and Pepper fried tofu. E had some fancy rice and soup and I tasted his Mango Asparagus salad rolls. And we finished it off with some mango and sesame ice cream.

Sunday, 9/22: OUT at Burger King with a salad (not pictured). treat: coffee blended banana smoothie and popcorn (on instagram). dinner: chicken patty with peppers, onion, and cauliflower, served with cottage cheese.

Coming up this next week, I have an outing on Wednesday and Saturday to look forward to, and a few simple meals in between. We bought some great produce over the weekend at both Costco and Safeway, and that is a sure plan to get me headed towards a healthy week!
