I have been in the kitchen A LOT lately. In case you missed it, my approach to food and fitness has changed quite a bit and now I finally understand how so many of you find joy in cooking and what all this hype of Pinterest is all about. Haha!
Since I didn’t really know that I would be blogging about the things that I have been making, I didn’t think to take pictures until recently. Boo. 😦 So today I will just share some of my latest meals that go along with my comical “meal plan” that I shared last week. Most of these would fit under the “2 healthy meals category” but make no mistake, I have been baking up a storm in the indulgence department and will be sharing those things very soon!
These muffins are such an easy and delicious breakfast. The kids love helping to make them and they are a great grab and go meal in the mornings. I found the recipe on everyone’s beloved Pinterest and have made them probably four times already. The recipe calls for one cup of brown sugar but I used half a cup and think this makes them the perfect amount of sweet. Feel it out!
Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats
I am no food photographer. 😦
Overnight oats are another great breakfast for those of you who have no time in the mornings. Just stir your favorite add-ins to some uncooked oatmeal and almond milk and walla! I have always enjoyed overnight oats of any kind and this one is just a quick mix of things I had in the kitchen.
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 Tbs chia seeds
- 1/4 cup blueberries (I used frozen)
Stir all ingredients together in a bowl (or jar if you are going to post it on social media ;)) Place in fridge. Go to bed. Wake up. Eat!
Warning: SANDWICH KICK!
I have been on such a crazy sandwich kick lately. They are just an easy way to make a satisfying lunch and the combinations are endless!
Ham and Cheddar with JUST Chipotle Mayo
The magic of this sandwich is the mayo! I found JUST Chipolte mayo at Publix and it’s probably one of the main reasons I am on a sandwich kick. I also really love this Knock Your Sprouts Off bread from Aldi.
Egg and Cheese
I like breakfast anytime. So if you are in the mood for brunch, here is an easy one! Of course, coffee is a must with any breakfasty food.
Turkey Roll Up
Again, the magic is in the mayo. And I blog for free so you now I really like it.
- 1 tortilla
- A few slices of deli turkey
- Provolone cheese
- JUST Mayo
Spead the mayo. Slice the cheese and lay across tortilla. Stack the turkey then roll it all up and pin with a toothpick. Easy!
Peanut butter and jelly is always a win. It’s so good with coffee! But what isn’t?
I hate that I just have this one thing to share because I have been having so much fun with dinner. Now that I know I will be blogging about my food adventures I will make sure to take pictures. Today I just have this one super delicious pasta that I made when Jason was out of town last week.
This pasta is easy to make and so delicious. I am not a huge meat eater lately so I had this as my meal but it would totally make a great side dish or you could throw some chicken in it for extra protein. I used gluten-free rotini instead of penne. It’s probably all in my head but I feel like rotini holds sauce better.
There you go! That’s all for this post. Stay tuned for more kitchen adventures!
