This WIAW, I’m sharing some meals that are pretty typical for me, as well as a dinner that showcases some newer food choices. The greens are nothing new, but since my elimination diet and subsequent step back from grains like oats and rice (and attempt to cut down on dairy, which sometimes works better than others) I’ve started eating some things that I haven’t touched since I was in preschool, if ever. I went from eating just fish and poultry to incorporating duck on occasion when I was in college in England. I threw pork/ham back into the mix last year, because as my dad says, it’s “the other white meat”. And very recently, I’ve dipped a toe in the waters of “real meat” which you’ll see if you read all the way through this day’s dinner…
Breakfast was some leftover baked sweet potato fries from the night before, and an omelet with veggies and spinach and garlic chicken sausage. Pretty routine if you’ve seen my Instagram of late. I also had an Oren’s iced coffee I got for free because of an expired loyalty card.
For lunch, a salad from Chop’t with kale, corn, cucumbers, celery, and charred onions, and their tzatziki dressing. I had my own chicken to top it with. I’m not usually so keen on Chop’t for my once-a-week splurge on buying lunch, but seeing Meredith’s better experience her second time around I gave it another shot. It’s much pricier than a salad I make myself, but when I have no time it does the trick!
Afternoon snacks included a Pink Lady apple, a Larabar, and a bag of sweet potato chips. Old photo, but just swap Plentils for potatoes!
Dinner at Bareburger. Always good, but instead of my usual turkey or duck burger, I went for what my dad terms “real meat”. I had a salad with romaine, feta, pickled onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, and green hummus, topped with a well done bison burger and their lemon tahini dressing. Extra dill pickles and fries on the side.
Ice cream for dessert. I do it year round, but now that it’s summer it’s practically a requirement. Cherry vanilla with rainbow sprinkles this time. Not like I didn’t have enough over Memorial Day Weekend, but there you are 🙂
