Happy “What I ate Wednesday” Here are a few foods and meals I am loving this week!
Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Think you don’t like brussels sprouts? Well, you have to try them this way! Cut in halves, spray with coconut oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and roast in oven at 425 for about 15-20 min or until slightly brown and crispy! Easy and delish!
Spiralized Butternut Squash “Pasta”
If you’ve never spiraled butternut squash, you’re missing out! Sauté on pan and cover to “steam” a bit to soften the noodles. Add spinach, grilled chicken, and goat cheese crumbles. The flavor combination is TO DIE FOR. Low carb, filling, and my NEW favorite!
Ziziki’s Greek Salad with Chicken Kabobs
If you love Mediterranean food and have never visited Ziziki’s in Dallas, what are you waiting for? We double dated there this past weekend at the Travis Walk location. Cozy and romantic setting and they have the cutest little patio. I ordered this delicious Ziziki’s Salad with their chicken kabobs on top. They give you their special ziziki’s sauce on the side with is basically and tzatziki and is AMAZING!
Protein bread topped with PB2 & homemade jam
If you haven’t tried my favorite PROTEIN BREAD recipe, get on it! Low carb, high protein and filling! I love it for a quick pre workout snack topped with PB2 and my homemade strawberry jam. To make the jam, microwave some frozen strawberries and mash then add a pinch of xanthum gum and stevia and place in fridge to thicken.
My favorite salad right now is mixed greens, sliced cucumbers, roasted red peppers, artichokes (halves out of a can), grilled chicken, and Bolthouse Farms Salsa Verde Avocado dressing (made with yogurt). When I need some starchy carbs (especially post workout) I like to bake up some of these Earthbound Farm Yukon Gold Rosemary & Garlic Wedges with some low sugar ketchup. I love them because there is only 1.5g of fat and 23g carbs per serving!
