Good Morning!

Happy Friday, I am so glad its almost the weekend!!

On Wednesday I told you I was prepping some breakfast for the rest of the week and that was indeed what I did.   I had it Wednesday and Thursday morning and it was so delicious, it was like a treat 🙂  My friend, who doesn’t have a blog,  gave me this recipe so I have to give her the credit, thanks Tessa!

Many of you had some very clever guess, and close guesses, so good job.  Some guessed quinoa, some guess chia….

So here is the secret ingredient:

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday, and Hump Day 🙂

I am teaming up with Jenn over at PeasandCrayons, for another WIAW.

These are my eats from Monday!  I’ve been trying to get more fruit in the mornings, but trying not to eat too much fruit later in the day which is hard to do when I buy pineapple, peaches, blueberries, and watermelon!  It’s all so fresh, I just love it all!

Breakfast:  Protein Power Balls and Blueberries

After running I ate a couple cinnamon walnut egg white bites before heading to the grocery store.  Does anyone else LOVE grocery shopping like I do?  I can’t wait for the weekends to restock my refrigerator, I know I’m weird!

While shopping I had myself a TALL, Skinny, Iced Vanilla Latte- Such a long name!  It totally hit the spot 🙂  I totally downed the entire thing before my bank shot into the garbage can.

This is what it looked like if I would have gotten a picture:

Lunch:  I made Round 2 of my Oriental Chicken Salad.  This time it wasn’t so oriental but it still tasted great.  Even better than Round 1 I think!

  • 2 Servings chicken breast- cut into chunks

  • 2-3 cups of grapes cut in half

Dressing:

  • 3-4 tbsp grapeseed oil  (Again I didn’t measure, sorry)
  • 1 tbsp Wildtree Opa Greek Seasoning
  • Salt to taste if needed

Lunch:  Oriental chicken salad with a Van’s whole grain English muffin: half with peanut butter and the other half with smart balance butter.  I went back for a second serving of the salad 🙂

Have you been baking anything tasty lately?

Now that it’s summer, I know for me it is especially hard to turn down dessert, including Ice Cream!!  I love making healthier desserts  including breads, and muffins to try and hit that sweet tooth.
