Twas’ the week before Christmas, and all through the house (or apartment)…were wafting scents of delicious treats. Starting on this WIAW, which was actually a Sunday, with a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake (going back to limited grains in preparation for my little procedure) and a mug of coffee for breakfast before a later morning run.
After my run, I met up with a friend for brunch at Green Kitchen, a diner in Yorkville that’s always been a family favorite. I got one of my usual omelet choices. Grilled chicken, feta, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes, with a side of sliced strawberries and blueberries.
For an afternoon snack, I went for a bowl of honeydew and a goat’s milk yogurt. The yogurt was absolutely delicious, and packed with protein and healthy fat (so much tastier than fat free Greek yogurt). It was very expensive so it’ll be a once-in-awhile treat I think, but I’m so glad I tried it.
And then I had a couple of Cinnamon Raisin Quinoa Muffins with a mug of decaf coffee because I was experiencing some serious runger, and the muffins were just begging to be eaten as I photographed them for yesterday’s post!
Dinner was one of my go-to plates of wild sockeye salmon broiled in the oven, a potato baked in the microwave with some Asiago cheese melted on top, and steamed veggies. All whole, healthy foods cooked simply in less than 20 minutes. After a relatively busy day it was just what I needed.
Dessert was some gluten free So Delicious Cookie Dough coconut milk ice cream. That is a mouthful, but it’s worth spelling it out, because if you’re gluten free and missing your cookie dough ice cream, you need to find this stat. It’s awesome.
What’s the best thing you ate this week?
Do you tend to eat recipes right after photographing them?
Do you have a go to meal at your favorite diner?
