The whole shebang of last week in one post. Here goes.
Breakfast on Monday was the last of this savory bread and fried eggs.
Breakfast on Tuesday was out – I had a savory crepe with hash browns at Crepeville.
Because Crepeville’s portions are awesomely massive I had leftovers for breakfast on Wednesday. Which I paired with two fried eggs.
Thursday I made steel cut oats in the rice cooker (the crock pot was already occupied) for our whole family. I topped mine with a bunch of non-nut things (aka seeds galore) – including chia, hemp, and pumpkin, plus sunflower seed butter.
I had the same thing Friday too. With even more sunbutter.
Saturday was a leisurely morning with Kyle home. So, Waffles!
On Sunday eggs were back on the menu! We finally got groceries – we were down to the last of the fridge bits and pieces – but now I have to wait a while for all 8 avocados to ripen. Fortunately we still had 1/2 of an avo left, which I split with P for breakfast. Mine was on GF toast, his was plain.
On to lunches!
Monday I made an egg & avo mash, which I heaped over spinach and carrots.
And partnered with glutino pretzels. Costco had these! I did a happy dance when I saw them and then tried not to get too excited since they’ll likely be discontinued by the next time I go (as is the case with all the good GF things I fall in love with).
On Tuesday I made an old school hippie bowl – seitan, quinoa, butternut squash, spinach, carrots, and avocado topped in Bragg’s aminos. Classic Elise meal.
I bought lots of this brand of seitan when I was in LA because it’s my fave. I miss all of the Healthy Times products. I wonder if they ship? Hmmm…
Wednesday’s lunch was on the smaller side because I ruined my appetite on (failed but delicious) biscuits. I paired them with avo/egg mash and baby carrots.
I had the exact same thing on both Thursday and Saturday so I didn’t bother to take a pic.
Friday was another seitan salad. Same ingreds as the previous bowl. And then again on Sunday.
My lunches are so snooze. I love em, but they aren’t interesting because I like what I like and so I just eat it again and again.
And now for the main meals.
Monday night featured spaghetti squash!
How did I wait ‘til half way through January before getting my faux noodle face on!?! I love you I love you I love you. Kyle had regular noodles because he doesn’t share in the fiber love affair.
On Tuesday I made use of the crock-pot. I was aiming for a stew but I guess I didn’t add enough liquid with the rice because it ended up more like a risotto. No problem in my book, it still tasted awesome.
Wednesday was all about the quiche magic.
On Thursday I made baked potatoes with the works. I’ve posted about it before here. This time I ditched the faux cheese and used plain goat’s milk kefir.
And Friday’s dinner was leftover quiche. The rest of it. Yep, I ate it all by myself in two servings.
Saturday night we had leftover stew. And Sunday we got our weekly sushi fix. 🙂
Drinks, snacks and desserts go largely undocumented. I don’t know why since they’re the best part of the day. 😉
I switched to coconut milk (from the can) to see if it helped with patty-cakes’ allergies. I made the above with one can of coconut milk (this brand has nothing but coconut and water and it’s organic and BPA free…and $$). I then added another can’s worth of water to dilute it a bit (read: make it last longer). It’s tasty! So far so good.
I drink at least a dozen cups of decaf or tea over the course of the day, so, ya know. Better for the little man.
Here are a list of my fave snacks: kettle corn, chocolate, chocolate, popcorn, corn nuts, banana chips, chocolate…ummm, did I mention chocolate?? It’s hard to think of non-nut snacks. I need to get more creative. I do have nuts in my desserts though because I know it will be several hours before I nurse P, which is enough time for the allergens to clear out of my breast milk.
Meal planning win. Onto the next week!
