I’m using Hummusapien as an inspo for these new posts. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with taking beautiful pictures to post with recipes because most of my meals are eaten out of tupperware nowadays (dietetic intern probs). I started my new rotation at Nationwide Children’s hospital this week, yay!

I hope that these posts will give you ideas to incorporate into your meals/snacks during the week! My goals is to help you all πŸ™‚ As always, reach out with any questions that you have!

Breakfast:

Made some delish pancakes topped with warmed blueberries, Purely Elizabeth maple walnut granola, maple syrup, and almond butter. As always, pancakes made with Kodiak Cakes! Used 1/3 cup of mix and added 1 scoop Further Food collagen peptides*, 1 T ground flax seed, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 T coconut flour, 2-3 T egg whites, and water.

Kodiak Cakes are liiiiife

Some peanut butter banana overnight oats post 6:30am workout before work! In my favorite CleKraut jar πŸ™‚ Mixed: 1/2 cup dry rolled oats, 1 tsp chia seeds, 2 tsp ground flax seed, 1 T PB2 powder, 1 scoop Further Food collagen peptides*, cinnamon, 1/2 mashed banana, big spoonful of nonfat plain Greek yogurt, and about 2-3 T almond milk.

Allll about quick and easy here. Toasted whole wheat English muffin from Whole Foods topped with almond butter, 1/2 banana, ground flax seed, and cinnamon. Plain, nonfat Greek yogurt on the side topped with strawberries and a sprinkle of Purely Elizabeth granola. And cinnamon. Can you tell I’m obsessed?

Lunch:

If you continue to read these posts, you will find out that I tend to eat the same thing for lunch every day. I usually meal prep all 4 days of my internship ahead of time on Sunday because it gives me more time during the week for things that I need to get done! Anyways, this week was suuuper warm so I was craving some fresh, colder foods. I made this salad with spring mix/spinach/kale, 1/2 cup chickpeas, pickled red onion, artichokes, red pepper, feta cheese, hard boiled egg, and Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado dressing. This stuff is the best!

Dinner:

Again, I prep a lot of my dinners, as well. This week I had some frozen lentil enchiladas that I had made a few weeks ago which made A TON. You can find the recipe here. They are delish and super easy! Please excuse the sub-par photography. Served with some cauliflower rice, frozen mixed peppers, onion, and zucchini stir-fried together with chili powder, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Topped with pico (store-bought bc I’m lazy) and avocado!!

If I’m not eating meal-prepped food, I am switching it up with quick, easy to make dinners that usually involves leftovers of some kind. I used the leftover cauliflower rice that I had made and scrambled 1 egg + 2 egg whites to add to it. I had some Better Bean Co. Cuban Black BeansΒ on the side (these things are so good). And of course avo + pico.

Happy hour at the one and only Condado w/ friends! This place I’m convinced has the best happy hour in Columbus. I’m obsessed. I got one taco with chicken and the other with shrimp!

Snacks:

Yum – a match made in heaven. These crackers taste exactly like wheat thins and are made with whole wheat flour, safflower oil, and sea salt. I also really dig this Kite Hill Foods cream cheese. Only bad part is it gets moldy SO quick so eat up πŸ™‚

I am always eating dark chocolate after meals – gotta end on a sweet note! This is leftover from Valentine’s Day.

First time trying this flavor and it was so good!!! Would definitely buy again. Eaten in traffic on my way home from my internship :’)

Pre-workout quick carbs for some fuel! Never workout on an empty stomach, you need to fuel those muscles! I love this Nature’s Path Organic Heritage Crunch Cereal – it’s made with whole grains and relatively low in sugar (6 g per 3/4 cup), but still tastes super yummy. With 1/2 banana and almond milk πŸ™‚

Good Culture cottage cheese topped with fresh strawberries! This snack is packed with healthy protein, fats, and carbohydrates to keep you full for hours!
