What I'm Eating: Rest of May

Again joining Heather over at Townsend House for her What I'm Eating Series.

Toasted Almond Butter & Banana Sandwich
w/ Mixed Greens, Strawberries, Sliced Nuts, & Mandarin Orange Salad

Tuna Salad Melt w/ Avocado on a Hoagie Roll

Baked Sweet Potato w side of Steamed Broccoli & Cauliflower

My stand-by Baked Cajun flavored Salmon w Roasted Baby Carrots & Cherry Tomatoes
w/ Blueberry/Spinach Smoothie (w flax seed, almond butter, vitamins, protein powder, coconut milk)

The usual go-to cans of V-8 and bags of almonds & cranberries while teaching.
I'm back to an every afternoon or evening protein smoothie. 
Mixed dried fruit has become my go-to evening movie snack food.
Tonight I gorged on beef jerky (can I call myself a vegetarian in recovery?!)
And I'm still using the breakfast burrito & homemade huevos rancheros as my go-to quick meal.
The daily Chobani yogurt taken with my D vitamins and a cup of dark roast coffee w creamer has become my regular breakfast, and really seems to have done the trick of helping ease stomach issues. 
I also was able to bring home the left-over fruit & veggie platter from last week's work event, so those in conjunction with my quick grab handfuls of almonds became my weekend snack foods.

Today I did my big 6 week Costco run: more food for the animals and more food for this human. Organic black beans, PNW sustainably farmed eggs, peach salsa, hummus, refried beans, yogurts, salmon, tortillas, organic bread, dark roast coffee, cranberries, frozen fruit for smoothies, beer, V8, and coconut oil. And tonight I did my weekly grocery store run: cauliflower, bananas, coconut milk, kale, avocados, cantaloupe, peaches, red wine, sweet potatoes, and two big sweet onions......

...cause on the docket for this weekend is to make some of these awesome looking blooming onions!


  1. This all looks delicious (though I'd pass on the beef jerky) and certainly healthy. I have got out of the habit of making smoothies perhaps I will make one this afternoon.

  2. Yum! You are eating some good eats these days. I have not been eating much that is interesting lately. I did grill over Memorial Day weekend, which was very fun and yummy. This weekend I am planning on making this cucumber salad with roasted chick peas that I saw on a blog.
