What I Eat in a Day

Welcome to another What I Eat in a Day ๐Ÿ™‚ This is one from during the week. I tend to eat “cleaner” during the week and save my sweets and stuff for the weekend. I don’t do it on purpose and if I end up eating a cookie during the week it’s no biggie, but in my life it just works out that way and I’m pretty happy with it!

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, potatoes, kale, tomatoes and a couple of pieces of smoked salmon. I’ve been hungrier recently so consciously adding a little extra protein here and there has been helping keep me fuller for a little longer!

Lunch: Grilled chicken and cheese sammy on a protein bagel with kale and tomatoes, potatoes. I love to use up whatever veggies I make or have throughout the day. It saves me time and no waste!

20190319_133656

Dinner: Barilla protein pasta with sauce and cheese and roasted broccoli

20190319_181800

Dessert: Chocolate covered almonds. O.M.G are these so good and addictive! It’s great for that post dinner sweet tooth or if you need a chocolate fix.

Full Day of Eating on a Friday

By the end of the week our fridge is usually running low on produce so if I’m at home I’m usually eating the last bits and pieces of our fruit and veg. This particular Friday I didn’t realize we had no kale so I decided I would just have some tomatoes with my morning toast ๐Ÿ™‚

20190222_100442

I did have breakfast dessert in the form of a mandarin, but that obviously went unpictured…shmurp.

Lunch was half of the last piece of naan bread topped with some sardine “salad” I threw together. I heated up some frozen broccoli since I was craving something green and tomatoes because I needed to use them up. Not very appetizing looking, but it was really delicious and nutritious ๐Ÿ˜‰

20190222_124004

Again mandarins were had, but nowhere to be found in my phone. Quite the mystery…

We had planned our dinner for Friday night, but had not done any of the shopping for it so once the hubby got home we did some grocery shopping to have our burger night.

We found these delicious challah rolls from Whole Foods. They were crusty on the outside and so so so soft on the inside. I was in bread heaven!

We made a stop at Sprouts to get some ingredients for this Green Goddess dip I had seen on Queer Eye on Netflix plus ground beef and other essentials.

We created an amazing side of roasted cauliflower that we dipped in the delicious Green Goddess dip we made. I highly suggest making the dip! It’s so yummy and herby and noms!

We obv also had these amazing burgers in the most incredible buns. A co-worker had gifted (kinda forced) some white cheddar on me and so we used that to top our burger. We both felt like we had found our best burger situation…the bun, the cheese, the meat, seasoning-it was all perfection!

20190222_195034

Another thing we picked up at Sprout’s were these mochi ice-cream that we saw. They were new and the flavors were intriguing so we obviously had to try a few! I think I prefer the fruit flavored mochi ice-cream over these, but they were still tasty!

It’s kinda been a crazy month or so in our household and because of that I haven’t been the best at taking pics of a full day of meals. I have on the other hand taken pics here and there of a few meals I’ve made and some we’ve had out.

I wanted to share them since I had them and I thought it would be fun!

We’ve been eating our share of broccoli in this house…whether it’s roasted or steamed. I’ve been having it with a delicious quesadilla.

I’ve been loving a simple slice of bread with some PB for a basic morning breakfast. It’s even better when I have some berries on the side or a banana to top it off ๐Ÿ™‚

20190207_092731

Leo and Lily’s brunch one Sunday

Sourdough bread with avocado, turkey bacon and egg (my version of Leo and Lily’s at home)!

20190129_102247

Thai from a cold Saturday night that totally hit the spot..

Protein pancakes that are PB flavored

20190122_091350

And finally a “salad” thrown together with kale and breakfast potatoes with sides of tomatoes and carrots. I did have some hummus on the side that I will be sharing in another post ๐Ÿ™‚

20190212_130414

I hope you guys are having a great start to the week! I’ll see you all Thursday!!

Full Day of Eating

It’s my first Full Day of Eating post in 2019 and I am here for it!

I love starting my day off with a yummy ย breakfast so today it was a bowl of greens, grape tomatoes, potatoes, and eggs! Noms!!

20181215_102920

I’ve been having breakfast later which means later lunch. The only problem with that is during the work week we have earlier dinner so a big lunch means I don’t want to have dinner. My solution? Have a smaller/snackier lunch. I’m happy with that and you guys know I LOVE having little bit of everything so this is perfect!

I decided on a half grilled cheese, greens, tomatoes and a little bit of golden lentil soup from Amy’s.

20181215_141040

The other trend you may notice is that I tend to eat the same veggies with most meals. This is because there’s only two of us and I hate buying a bunch of produce and throwing it away because I didn’t have time to use it. To avoid this I will buy a few different veggies and use them up throughout the week.

I’ve also been buying frozen bell peppers to add to eggs and frozen breakfast potatoes because it keeps pretty well and sometimes it’s even a little less expensive.

For dinner we ended up going to an AYCE sushi place called Hikari. It’s actually pretty close to the other AYCE ย sushi place we went to, Maru. This place was delicious, but we still prefer Maru.

Hunida’s blogs have me on a sushi kick!

Hikari also gave us complimentary green tea ice-cream at the end of our meal. It was sweet and had a very mild green tea flavor!

20181215_170351

We came home after this and relaxed until it was time for bed ๐Ÿ™‚ what have you been eating? Do you have a favorite AYCE sushi place?

 

Meals Lately

I’ve been so busy posting about our trip, but that doesn’t mean that I have forgotten to take snaps of food we’ve been eating since being back home.

I won’t lie most of it is home food and I don’t know if that’s interesting to you guys, but that’s what I’ve been eating so that’s what I’ve taken pictures of ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s jump in!

This first meal was made in a hungry rush! I made a bean and cheese quesadilla and added an egg on top to make it “breakfast.” I feel like you could make anything “breakfast” if you add an egg to it-anyone else?

20181123_114607

Donuts for dessert are always highly appreciated in this household. We adore SK Donuts! They have such soft, fluffy yeast donuts and they have a good variety of cronuts too!

20181124_194457

This next meal was homemade burgers and fries! Such a simple meal, but so yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹

20181122_194649

We happened to be at Century City and I could feel my blood sugar crashing so we stopped by Eataly and I had half of this for a snack. It was a cacio e pepe pizza and it was E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.

20181123_164751

Quick meals are the theme of this post because to me nothing cooks quicker then eggs and peppers…noms! 20181127_123856

This next meal is the same as the last except I used a tortilla as much delicious carb source ๐Ÿ˜…

20181201_102117

These apple chips were breakfast dessert one particularly ravenous day. I really enjoyed them! I don’t remember ever having apple chips other than in the Fuji apple chicken salad from Panera and I can say I am a fan!

20181123_120045

That’s all I have for today! What have you been eating lately?

Snooze

We were in Carlsbad with some friends a few weeks ago and hubby had a meeting to be at so myself and friends went to brunch. We ended up going to Snooze in San Diego-it was a 30ish minute drive from where we were, but it was worth every minute.

I was craving something sweet and lucky for me they had some great options to pick from. A friend and I split the pancake sampler and a OMG french toast.

For our pancake sampler we got their Smashin’ Pumpkin, Blueberry Danish, and their pancake of the day which was an apple/caramel situation.

The OMG french toast was incredible. It was a brioche bread filled with mascarpone and topped with vanilla creme, salted caramel, strawberries and toasted coconut. We left off the caramel on this one, but didn’t miss it one bit. It was sweet and the toasted coconut added lovely texture to the soft, pillowy french toast.

20181027_114436.jpg

The Smashin’ Pumpkin was the favorite in the pancakes, but all of the pancakes were fluffy and delicious. I wouldn’t recommend the Blueberry Danish-it was the least favorite and I do love bluebs an awful lot. I think if I hadn’t had the other two pancakes I would have liked the blueberry one more, but in comparison not that great!

20181027_114440

Our other friend got a savory dish and loved it too! This place has amazing reviews on Yelp and it was true to it’s ratings. We actually had to wait an hour before getting seated, but I would still come back because I thought the food was that good!

If you ever come to San Diego you need to stop by for brunch!

 

Full Day of Eating on a Saturday

I am so excited to bring you guys along for a FDOE! This particular Saturday was especially delicious and filled with a lot of yummy treats ๐Ÿ˜!

IMG-20181006-WA0001

We started our day with a late brunch from Wake and Late. I got a carne asada, egg, cheese, avocado, pickled jalapeรฑo and potato burrito while the hubby got a egg white, spinach, pickled jalapeรฑo, onions, avocado, and red pepper burrito. They also grill the burrito after to make it nice and crunchy!

We both enjoyed our very filling burritos and needed something sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ we ended up sharing this nutella macaron from a random French bakery.

20181006_123548

We ended up going to Century City Mall to find a suit for hubby and while there we noticed that 85ยฐ Bakery was open. I could not not check it out you guys. That would have been a major food blogger sin, right?

I knew you would understand!

We got the honey cake, coconut roll, and milk bun. Nothing was super sweet, but everything was delicious! If you have one of these around I would definitely recommend checking it out.

20181006_143326

We didn’t eat it all and saved some for dinner dessert ๐Ÿ˜‰

We walked around the mall for a little while longer and then left. I was super tired and the hubs was too, I think, so we both napped. I honestly have no idea how long we were out for, but it wasn’t more than an hour?!

For dinner we had decided on wings from Big Al’s Pizzeria. We headed on over because it’s a little over an hour from where we live. I’m definitely glad we went when we did because it was packed in there, it took about an hour to get our food, and another hour to get back home with it.

We ended up getting the buffalo, the dragon, and the Jamaican. The dragon was the spiciest and the most flavorful. The Jamaican was sweet and sticky. The buffalo was a really rounded buffalo flavor-not too vinegary or too spicy.

20181006_205106

We really enjoyed the wings, but as always needed dessert. We snacked on chocolates, the rest of our 85ยฐ Bakery, and some grapes because #health.

I hope you guys enjoyed this somewhat long post. Thanks for sticking around to read it all! I hope you’re having a great start to the week!!

Hey sweet people!

I am excited to share with you some meals I have on my phone that I haven’t shared in any of the other blog posts. These are meals I probably captured with the intention of having a full day of eating, but it didn’t happen #badfoodblogger

We had some delicious sushi at Sushi Enya with some friends. Sadly, we only got pics of a couple of rolls and these were actually captured by hubby I think. After this we were so busy eating and talking that few pictures were taken. Oops!

One Sunday after a mediocre brunch we decided to cook at home. We thought about it and decided on steak and cauli. The hubs made a gorgeous steak and I roasted up the cauliflower for a pretty simple but tasty dish!

20180916_170958

I usually prefer a savory breakfast, but always need something sweet after–usually fruit. I decided to skip breakfast dessert and just have something sweet for breakfast by way of these gluten free banana pancakes. I know I’ve posted about these and they are quick, yummy, and filling.

20180917_100258

This delicious looking salmon was our dinner one weeknight that I was off. It was a fun dish to create and lovely to look at too!

20180918_180848

We did go back to Malibu Farm Pier Cafe and get some brunch which was a little underwhelming compared to their lunch, but I was too hungry to go anywhere else. I got this salmon hash dish and hubby got an open brussels sprout omelette.

20180916_114654

Those are all the random dishes I have for today! I’m sure I will have more in the coming weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a fantastic Thursday!

 

Full Day of Eats

Welcome back to another FDOE. This is from a busy Friday filled with errands and running around but ended with movie night and quality time with bae ๐Ÿ™‚

I started my morning off with a yummy breakfast burrito! I don’t have a lot of time to make myself breakfast on days I work so on days I’m off I really enjoy taking my time to make a good one–recently it’s been these burritos!

20180810_095005

I ran around for some errands and by the time I got home it was almost 2pm so I threw together this delicious salad. It had all the leftover baby kale, sesame seeds, goat cheese, and some rotisserie chicken. Unpictured are the plantains I had on the side and the super sweet, juicy nectarine I had for dessert.

20180810_135035

Once the hubs got home we made plans for dinner and a movie. We went to Marilyn’s Mediterranean Kitchen. The hubs LOVED this place and I thought it was pretty excellent too.

20180813_161014

We got a chicken shawarma plate and a kuftah kebab plate. They came with two sides of our choice so I picked hummus and rice and the hubs picked veggies and baba ghanoush.

20180810_191316

Everything was delicious! Hubby’s favorite was the kuftah kebab and I couldn’t get enough of the hummus. The service was really great and everyone was so friendly and helpful.

They were so nice and found out that it was our first time and gave us a tiramisu. It was so good and such a perfect ending to our meal!

20180810_193823

We headed out to watch The Spy Who Dumped Me and I thought it was great. I was almost in tears laughing, but I may have been the only one. The hubs thought it was a good movie, but nothing to write home about.

That concludes my FDOE! I hope you guys enjoyed the post!

Have you guys seen The Spy Who Dumped Me? What did you think?

 

 

Full Day of Eating

Happy Monday Friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I wanted to share with you another full day of eats.

I don’t know what the deal with was this day, but I wasn’t super hungry. Normally I’m ravenous once I wake up and especially after my workout, but my body was not about the food this morning. So I kept it basic and started my morning off with a multi grain waffle with almond butter and some bluebs.

20180721_144853

Some friends and I had made plans for lunch at noon! We went to Joey and I felt my appetite kind of crawling up so I was excited ๐Ÿ™‚

I ended up going for the rotisserie chicken sandwich. It had rotisserie chicken, cheese, tomato and lettuce. It came with these thin, crispy, perfect fries so I definitely ate some of those.

20180721_124631

I ate half of the sandwich and had half the fries and took the rest of the sandwich home to hubby.

Hubby and I ran around after he got home from work and after all the running around I was getting hungry again so we had a pretty early dinner at Tomoya.

To start we got some miso soup. I love miso soup and it totally hit the spot-so warm and soothing!

20180721_181708

We also nibbled on edamame while we figured out which rolls we wanted.

20180721_181930

We ended up picking 2 rolls: a spicy tuna without rice and a rainbow roll with blue crab. Both were good, but I definitely preferred the spicy tuna!

20180721_182945

We had made plans to go see Hotel Transylvania 3 after dinner, but we made in time to find dessert first. We went to Jeni’s. Honestly some of the best ice-cream I have had to date.

20180721_192114

We ended up getting a flight of minis so we got to pick 3 flavors. We picked peanut butter with chocolate flakes, gooey butter cake, and brown butter almond brittle. The hubs loved the PBC and gooey butter cake the best. I loved the gooey butter cake and brown butter almond brittle the most.

We watched the movie-super cute by the way and then headed home! That concludes my FDOE which kinda turned into a bit of a full day of living too.
