Stuff I Ate

It's time for a random meal round-up! I haven't done one of these in awhile. As you'll see, I've been doing a pretty decent job of finding a balance between healthy meals and indulgent treats.

As always, I'm still having protein smoothies after most runs, and this Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie was fantastic after a morning run last week. This had Vega One Berry protein powder, almond milk, frozen mixed berries, frozen banana, PB2, and kale.


Another breakfast last week — Pudla with Hummus & Sauteed Squash. I used Lacy's recipe from Reset & Restore. This was one of my favorite breakfasts on the reset, and I know I'll be making this again and again.


This morning's breakfast was an Ozery Bakery Cranberry Orange Morning Round with Earth Balance Coconut & Peanut Spread & IKEA Lingonberry Jam! So good! Like a fancy adult version of PB&J. Banana on the side.


Looks like I have lots of breakfast pics for some reason. Here's another post-run meal — locally made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bar and Banana. I got this bar by V Raw B Energized at City Silo. It was made with peanut butter, protein powder, and chocolate chips. Had a soft, chewy texture. Very good!


And last breakfast pic — Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie with Vega Sport Mocha protein, frozen banana, PB2, almond milk, and maca. Enjoyed after my 16-mile Saturday long run. Basically, I just want to eat all peanut butter, all the time.


But hey, here's a non-breakfast/non-peanut butter pic! It's a giant salad, which has been a standard go-to lunch lately. I think this had toasted quinoa, romaine, peas, corn, shoestring beets, tomato, carrot, onion, vegan bacon bits, and Hampton Creek Just Caesar Dressing.


All of the above is pretty healthy, but I had a nice splurge on Tuesday night at Vegan Drinks at RP Tracks. I ordered a High Cotton Scottish Ale and some Buffalo Tofu. Love these crispy fried tofu sticks! I only wish RP Tracks would carry vegan ranch for dipping. Next time, I'll BYOR (bring your own ranch).


On the side, I ordered RP Tracks' Chips and Salsa. They use this amazing seasoned salt on their chips, and their salsa is the best in town. I ate all my tofu, but I shared this big ole plate of chips.


Finally, I dropped by City Silo after a lunch meeting today for a to-go Chagalate Wellness Latte — a steamed drink with chaga mushroom powder, cacao, carob, coconut cream, maple, vanilla, pink salt, and almond milk. Yay for superfoods!

That salad looks amazing! I've been wondering if the Just Caesar is good. I really love their Just Ranch, it's my favorite!! I love pudlas too, and that tofu looks amazing!!

That wellness latte looks so interesting- hard to imagine what that combination tastes like since it sounds slightly sweet yet has mushroom powder...?

Breakfast is important! I'm having a really intense nut butter phase this winter so i am with you on adding it to smoothies and toast and about anything else
