Hiiiiya! Stopping by this lovely Wednesday before heading off to work for the day. I’m working more than usual this week because I’m taking next week off. On Monday, I worked from 11:30am-12:30am. Woooweeee that was a rough one. I also trained legs that morning so needless to say, I about collapsed into bed that night.
First of all, pancakes need to be mentioned. Pancakes have been eaten every. single. day. for the past ever (or so it feels). I just can’t get enough. Kodiak cakes power cakes mix are THE BEST high protein pancakes in the history of pancakes. Seriously, I’m obsessed. Unfortunately I can only find them at Target and the closest Target to me is a 30 minute drive, so I stock up when I go.
You’d think 5 boxes would last a lifetime, but Alex and I already went through them all. I just checked when this picture was taken and it was on December 1st. It’s currently December 17th. Woops.
Okay, I lied. There was one day that I didn’t have pancakes. Gasp. Post workout smoothie consisting of peanut butter, banana, chocolate protein powder, almond, and ice. Topped with cashew butter and a few dark chocolate chips. Not to worry though, I had pancakes for lunch. Seriously, I have issues.
One night, I made my spaghetti pie with sautéed zucchini. I subbed the sour cream for Greek yogurt, and it was deeeeelish!
A fun new restaurant I found on campus! This bowl had rice, pork, and lots of fresh veggies. The sauce on the pork was so dang good.
Trader Joe’s gingerbread! I subbed half the oil with applesauce and used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.
I’m currently obsessed with Cafe Yumm and should really cut back but let’s be honest—that’s not gonna happen. There’s a reason it’s called Cafe YUMM.
Zoodles with chicken and pesto. I hadn’t had pesto in ages and I just can’t get over how good it is.
Lean beef burgers with loads of grilled onions and kale salad on the siiiiide.
Stuffed bell peppers with sautéed zucchini and broccoli.
More pesto! Chicken breast with pesto, colorful carrot fries (recipe here) with homemade honey mustard dipping sauce, and sautéed zucchini and spinach.
Waffle pizzas! I used Kodiak Cakes power cakes for the waffles (obv) and added some spices and parm to the mix.
Chicken stir fry!
And lastly, Alex and I went out for brunch the other day after our workout.
I splurged and got cinnamon roll French toast with 2 eggs and chicken sausages. Just look at the French toast. Omg.
Straight to the biceps.
Have a good Wednesday! I’m gonna go make some pancakes now
