Happy Wednesday all! I’m back with another recap of my eats. This time I will share my meals and snacks from last Saturday, a delicious and fun-filled day!
I started out with some overnight buckwheat groats for breakfast. Just like overnight oats but with raw buckwheat! I used 1/4 cup of buckwheat, 2 tbsp of chia seeds, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt, 1 ripe banana, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, 1/2 tbsp of coconut flakes, and 3/4 cup of coconut milk!
That morning I met up with my step brother, sister-in-law and niece at the farmer’s market! It was great to see what the indoor market offered and I’m excited to go back again soon. After I got home I made a salad for lunch. Spinach, quinoa, avocado, chili powder, lemon juice and olive oil. Super simple and super delicious!
Later I snacked on two savory nuts and seeds balls. They are wonderful! Made with tahini, almond butter, an assortment of chopped nuts and seeds and some cinnamon and raisins.
This past weekend we had wonderful weather so that afternoon I went for a walk with my friend on the lakefront! I am so excited for warmer weather to be here to stay so I can go for walks on the lakefront more often. After our walk I was pretty hungry so I went home and made dinner. I sautéed a bunch of greens and veggies and beans in coconut oil and topped it with tahini and some spices. Had a pear on the side which was perfectly ripe and sweet!
Dessert was a Homemade Shamrock Shake in preparation for St. Patty’s day. It is the most refreshing treats I’ve had in awhile. The fresh mint leaves make this smoothie incredible!
