happy superbowl sunday! what is everyone doing for the superbowl?
I’m not a fan of either team so I’m just having a pot luck dinner with some of my friends. I’m in charge of bringing the turkey chili!
This morning I forced myself to get up early and be productive
My meal prep for the week included a batch of roasted veggies and quinoa
A very green batch: In the mix was 3 zucchini, a bunch of asparagus, 2 green bell peppers, and half an onion. Roasted at 375 with some olive oil, salt, and pepper for 45 minutes I love making a big batch of veggies to have for the week to go with easy meals such as salads and eggs. Or eaten plain with lots of sriracha!
For the quinoa I made 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa. To the quinoa I added sauteed mushrooms and spinach, feta cheese, a can of chick peas for added protein, and a couple tablespoons of pesto
this will be great to have on hand for lunch this week or just as a quick snack!
i hope I can keep up the weekly meal prep even with my insanely busy schedule this semester because it will make sticking to a healthy, clean diet a lot easier
some of my recent eats since I’ve been home..
my first night home my friends made me cauliflower crust pizza! I helped a little in the making process. I’m not sure where my friend got the recipe from but once I find out I’ll let you know. It was delicious! Definitely doesn’t taste like real crust but it tastes delicious.
We decided we made the crust too thin because it was falling apart a bit. But it still tastes just as good! We did pesto, mushrooms, chicken, and mozzarella cheese for toppings
Nom! I will definitely be making this again!
This mornings breakfast was a mushroom and cheese omelet with 2 eggs and 1 egg white. Topped with sriracha of course. I have a serious love affair with sriracha..I’m just so obsessed.
Last night we made a thai chicken cashew quinoa recipe..It was delicious! Once again my friend Lindsay has the recipe so once I get it from her I’ll share it with you!
And for my first lunch home I caved and got Chipotle. ITS SO GOOD BAHH. I got a salad with 1 scoop of brown rice, chicken, black beans, hot and corn salsa, and of COURSE GUAC!! I love how much guac they give you. love love love it.
So here’s what the meal plan for the week looks like!
- Sunday: Turkey Chili
- Monday: Crock Pot thai sweet potato and Lentils (hopefully sharing the recipe!)
- Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash + Mom’s Sauce!
- Wednesday: leftovers
- Thursday: Fancy Annie’s Mac + Cheese w/ chicken and peas
- Friday: Leftovers/out
and as far as work outs go..I’m hoping to get in as many quick work outs as possible because I have a busy next couple of weeks with LOTS of recruitment practice and classes starting tomorrow
tomorrow I plan on doing the living room circuit work out
I’ve done this work out a lot of times before and I love it every time!
I also want to try the winter shape up work outs from the fitnessista
As I just said classes start tomorrow. NOOO PLEASE NOO. I hope I’ll be able to keep up with blogging this semester but I’m not going to lie its going to be tough. This is by far my busiest and hardest semester yet so I hope I’ll be able to balance it all!
Time to go continue watching the puppy bowl
yup. puppy bowl. definitely way better than the super bowl in my opinion
my roommates and I need to get treated for our dog obsession..
I hope everyone has a great night!
Question for ya!: What are some meals your planning on making this week?
