While I was creating this little blog post, I realized one thing: spinach is amazing. Call me Popeye, because I clearly love my spinach! Somehow I managed to sneak it into every meal (including dessert!) without even realizing it. Hey, I’m better than I thought! Small successes make me happy, what can I say.
So on to the good stuff! It’s time for WIAW!
What I Ate (Last) Wednesday
I made a batch of my spinach protein roll ups and topped them with some almond, peanut, and cashew butter “sauce” along with a sliced banana. These are SO good! I can’t even begin to tell you the salivating nirvana that it induces! And it keeps me full for hours!
I stored these in the freezer so that I could grab them for easy “on the go” snacks. These are really good, you would have no clue that lentils are in them!
Salad + Dunkin’ Egg
For lunch I had one of my favorite “secret sauces” on my salad.
In the mix:
Roasted yellow squash
Two dunkin’ eggs
Blueberry Chobani + Cottage Cheese
I seriously love this combination. Of course it got topped with some cinnamon. What’s anything without cinnamon? ;)
Salmon + Spicy Spinach Hummus
I made the spinach hummus the same way I had before, but added some red pepper flakes for a little bite. Matt and I lovvvve this!
I cooked the salmon the way I typically do…seriously a no fail method! I also made a batch of quinoa and seasoned it with a little Herbs de Prevence and steamed some green beans. This meal was possibly one of the best things I have ever eaten. No joke.
From these fabulous WIAW parties I discovered this wonderful protein packed cake by Laura. I didn’t have cocoa in the house (completely wrong in every way possible, I don’t know how I let this happen!) so I ended up just using chocolate protein powder that we had. I also baked it in the oven at 350 for 14 minutes and then let it cool in the fridge while I ate dinner.
It reminded me a lot of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bread, which made me want to make that again soon!
Happy WIAW friends!
