I didn’t capture all of my eats for the week, but here are a few snapshots of what I have been eating lately.
I ate overnight oats all week so I didn’t want to bore you. The only breakfast I photographed was yesterday’s SB&J (sunflower butter and jelly) overnight oats. Topped with my homemade Maple Sunflower Seed Butter and Stonewall Kitchen’s Wild Maine Blueberry Jam. I LOVE this jam because there are whole, wild Maine blueberries throughout!!
I brought leftover roasted potatoes put on top of the last of my original hummus (so good), a little plum and white nectarine and a baby gherkin.
I ate this awesome Thai coconut lettuce wrap from a Whole Foods event yesterday afternoon as part of my snack/second lunch. It was filled with a Thai Coconut Nut Burger and other yummy stuff. Nut Burgers are a brand new discovery and delicious! A plant-based, 100% vegan, non-GMO and gluten/soy-free burger that I will share more about in another post.
My summer weeknight dinners usually consist of a lot of salads. This salad was super simple, with local organic greens, roasted broccoli, baby gherkin (cucumber), and avocado. Everything was from the farmers market.
Egg salad with baby spinach on top of Ezekiel toast, baby gherkins and baked lentil chips with some un-pictured hummus.
I usually have something sweet after dinner, unless I had something really filling.
A piece of Hawaiian dark chocolate coconut bar topped with sunflower seed butter.
The Awakening Key Lime Pie from Cafe Gratitude is ah-maz-ing. This vegan key lime pie is not as thick and rich as the original, but super light and dreamy. Made with avocado-lime custard, cashew coconut meringue and pecan-macadamia date crust.
For fitness this week I’ve been hitting up the elliptical, bike, walking and of course yoga. I’m taking a little break from running due to outside stress that has really been affecting my running. If it feels forced, don’t do it people! I’ve decided not to train for anything right now but continue with shorter runs.
Yesterday morning I went for a refreshing hike at Tree People. It’s always nice to get out and clear your head during a hike.
I brought this Maple Water for my post-hike refreshment. Maple water is tapped directly from the maple trees that naturally produce this delicious water! It contains one ingredient: 100% pure maple water. It has a slightly sweet maple flavor and is filled with its own nutrients. It’s a nice change from regular water and extremely refreshing after a sweaty workout.
