Tuesday was a long day at work, but I managed to get in some good eats! I also made some other snacks for on- the- go that I want to share with you! So here goes another round of WIAW, thanks to Jenn!
First up: Paleo Lemon Coconut Bites
These turned out way better than I imagined!!
- 5 pitted dates
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 3 tbsp applesauce (no sugar added)
- Juice of 1/2 Lemon
- Lemon Zest of 1 whole lemon
Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor. (You can just chop the dates and walnuts and mix everything together by hand if you don’t have a processor). Roll into balls and store in refrigerator!
*** These would be just as good with oats if you don’t have coconut flour (They wouldn’t be paleo then). Almond flour would also work but probably wouldn’t taste as good 🙂 Experimenting is always good.
I started my breakfast bright and early, and like usual I ate it in the car on the way to work!
Breakfast: Oats in a Jar around 6:30 am
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Pour into an almost empty jar of almond butter!
Snack: 11 am
Lunch: 1:15 pm
Salad- peppers, avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, walnuts with lemon vinaigrette
Also some strawberries and a chicken sausage that I ate too fast for pictures 🙂
I have no idea where these came from!! LOL I love all the snacks that we have at work, I have to try to resist them. We also have goldfish, and cinnamon teddy grahams, OMG….Save them for the kids Sara!
And an apple:
Dinner around 7:30:
Snacked on some sweet cherry tomatoes that were the bomb! I got a huge container at Sam’s!
Boneless ribs with Stubbs BBQ sauce, corn on the cob, and edamame= YUM
Then a couple of these chewy Nuttzo Protein Balls!!
I swear this little girl in the background can smell food a mile away!
Delicious! The recipe will be on the Blog tomorrow!
I may or may not have had some captain crunch before bed too!!?!?
Who doesn’t love corn on the cob in the summer?!
What’s your favorite not-so-healthy cereal?
