What’s shakin on your hump day?
Did you know that apparently there in a middle school in Connecticut that is hatin on Mr. Camel and his weird voice in the Geico Hump Day ads…
“Everybody’s walking around in the hallways and saying it’s hump day in that weird voice…” [source]
The principle at said school has banned the use of the words “hump day” because it has become too disruptive in classrooms.
Really? Have we really sunk to this level now? We don’t have anything else better to address?
What do you think?
Anyways, onto some #FoodPorn. Since it’s been a while I have quite a few snaps of some lovely noms for ya this week as I jump back into the What I Ate Wednesday party with all the cool kids over at Peas And Crayons.
Thanks, as always, to Jen for hosting!
I will first start with today’s eats than you will get a lovely picture reel of some recent healthy food porn. Prepare yo-selves. 😀
Wednesday rest days call for zoats. This morning before my 7AM (!!!! sooo eeaarrlly) staff meetin meant nanner was added in said zoats along with thawed bloobs, raw cacao nibs and crunchy almond butta.
After the staff meeting, I had a good 2ish hours before I had to run to GoodnessMe! for another 9ish hours of work. You know what that means? NAP TIME for the win! Before lovely hour of zzzzzzzin bliss I knocked back my fish oils and 1/2 a can of tuna because I was hungry again.
Due to eatin lunch at work …at cash…shhhh don’t tell…it was my usual wrappie made from my amazingly handy gluten-free oat wrap. Check this guy out. Yes, chronic overstuffer I am. 😀
What’s all hiding in there?
Sauteed mushrooms and onions, wilted spinach, roasted turkey breast meat from Whole Foods, avocado, mustard and the basil-parsley oil-free pesto I prepped this weekend. Not too shabby for a inconspicuous meal I would say.
Also had some roasted acorn squash on the side for some moooore carbs..
Snackin attackin at work was my gluten free chunky monkey pronuts. Recipe for the original muffins (I just decided to make them donuts this week) to come I promise.
Dinna was the usual salad beast (one reason for lovin rest days!). As you know, I ain’t no lettuce salad kinda girl. Check this guy out!
Also in the beast was…
Spinach, roasted butternut squash, onions, asparagus and mushrooms, raw red pepper, rainbow swiss chard stems, Asian salad blend, avocado and my homemade tangy dressing which now features coconut vinegar (love this stuff!) instead of lemon juice.
Snack later now that I’m chillin at home chatting with you guys will be the typical puddin and 1/2 a Questie. But which Questie should I have….?? Hmmmm must not fall for Cookies and Cream for the humpteenth time. Or not. 😉
So that was my day of eats while workin one of my busiest days of the week. In other news, here’s some other foodporn that I have enjoyed over the past few weeks since we last partied together.
White Chocolate Raspberry also made an appearance…
My boyfriend also enjoyed some Lil Miss Fitness-ified eggy OIAJ or Oats In A Jar. I made his proats using a whole egg and no whey, unsweetened carob powder and melted banana for volume and sweetness (whipped in a la Chocolate Covered Katie…volume baby!). Pistachios and carob chips graced the top with a final lil drizzle of raw honey.
Erik from work (GoodnessMe!) ordered in organic Kabocha squash just for lil ol’ me! 😀 I was surprised to see it orange as I’m used to green. I still like the green the best (crispens up more when roastin), but this gem is still delicious!
Squash obviously made it’s appearance when I had the opportunity to make and eat dinner off a plate on my days off. It’s the lil things that make me quite happy. Days off mean SQUASH FOR EVERY DINNER 😀
Scallops of course need no intro…
Squash also made it’s appearance in post workout lunches along with some purple sweet taters. Colours just taste better in my opinion…
Let’s get a close up..
Yum! I simply roasted the piece of butternut squash at 350 in the oven until it was soft and stuffed it with a sautee of kale, mushrooms, garlic, onion, ground turkey breast meat, chili flakes, worcestershire sauce and cumin. Topped it all off with a lil of my pesto and ate it with a nice big salad.
Lastly, another post workout lunch that involved ground turkey breast meat…Yeah I ate a lot of turkey this week after my trip to Whole Foods with Heather on Saturday (so much fun!!).. was this lovely combo.
Healthy turkey ‘fried’ rice. Snow peas, kale, asparagus, mushrooms and some acorn squash cubes were mixed in and sauteed with some ground turkey breast meat cooked with garlic, onion and chili. The whole thing was then mixed with some jasmine brown rice, more chili flakes and worcestershire...that stuff is soo good. Simple and delicious!
Well that’s all for me tonight friends as I want to call it a night early to get some zzzz’s for LEG DAY torture…I mean growth.. tomorrow. Of course, snackie time comes first! :-D.
What’s your favourite healthy food porn?
What’s one simple thing that brings you a lot of happiness? Dinner off a plate may seem silly to you but for a person who loves making nice meals for herself and eats out of containers 5x per week minimum, plated food is cherished food.
