Food Catch-Up

Hey guys! Since the blogging has been sparse lately, I’ve stockpiled quite a few delicious meals! So-let’s get to it, shall we?

My current typical breakfast-eggs with a few veggies, sun butter, and an apple.

A hummus salad with roasted red pepper hummus and a turkey burger. Plus an oatmeal cookie hiding in the back there. Is it weird that I love oatmeal raisin cookies??

Vegan coconut/mango/strawberry rice pudding. For some reason the dining hall has had a lot of vegan desserts lately, and this was deliciously creamy and refreshing!

Chicken, roasted cauliflower, roasted broccoli, and candied yams.

Hummus salad, a few sweet potato fries, and a veggie panini with pesto aioli.

During finals when I didn’t have class, I decided to have breakfast before my 5 mile hill run so I went with a bit of eggs and a whole wheat english muffin, half with butter and half with sun butter and jam.

Lunch at the dining hall-I made a salad with fajita chicken, beans, salsa, and guacamole. Plus some caesar salad on the side. Salad with my salad? Why not?

A turkey burger with sautéed greens, a few pieces of orange tofu, and carrots with poppyseed dressing.

Out to ice cream with friends to say goodbye to one who is going abroad! I went to my favorite place ever, Tin Pot, but got the vegan ice cream which was chocolate coconut since me eating dairy is of debatable intelligence right now. It was still rich and chocolatey, with shredded coconut.

Lunch before my last exam was the same thing I’ve had in tupperware these past couple of weeks, but my pictures have looked like mostly just lettuce! Roasted red pepper hummus and hard boiled egg. Quick, easy, and delicious!

On my first day home, my parents and I went to our local Chinese restaurant. I started with egg drop soup.

For my main dish, I had sautéed chicken and vegetables with fried rice.

On Saturday night, we made my Grilled Chicken and Peach salad, but subbed grilled pears for grilled peaches, and it turned out great!

Leftover grilled chicken repurposed into a post-run meal of BBQ chicken and steamed broccoli.

Apple Crisp! I used a recipe from Nancy Clark’s Nutrition for Athletes book, and the simple recipe came out rich with flavor! Served with some coconut milk ice cream for me.

Turkey burgers with homemade ketchup on a lettuce leaf, baked sweet potato wedges, and the best ever roasted broccoli.

Can you tell I am now home with access to a kitchen??

Monday afternoon, we stopped at a local bakery to try a few slices of cake which we shared between us.

(I apologize for the terrible picture!)

Banana chocolate chip with cream cheese icing.

Tropical-coconut pineapple.

Raspberry vanilla.

I think the raspberry vanilla might have been my favorite? I think I would have liked them better if I had just one flavor at once-we split them and there was just a lot going on!

A quick dinner-my CA chop salad. This has chicken, tomato, avocado, olives, and gouda with a dijon vinaigrette.

PHEW that was long.

What did you eat this week?
