Catching Up On Eats

Time for a fun another fun food recap of the things I’ve eaten lately!

Breakfasts

We’ve been eating a ton of yogurt bowls in the morning which have replaced my go to cottage cheese breakfast concoctions. Just scoop a few tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt in a bowl with a handful of blueberries, a teaspoon of chia seeds, a teaspoon of flax-seed, a teaspoon of wheat bran, and a handful of slivered almonds. The pomegranates in this pic were a bonus!

Yogurt Bowls

My other go to breakfast has been oatmeal. There’s nothing like a comforting bowl of oatmeal with overflowing ingredients on a work from home day at the end of a long week! I use the same ingredients as my yogurt bowls in my oatmeal, and I add sliced banana, walnuts instead of almonds, and cinnamon. Delish.

Baked Goods

Every Sunday night for the past couple of weeks, I’ve made a baked good of some kind during food prep time. I’m liking this trend. So is Tim.

One of my favorite muffins has been these almond chocolate chip chia berry muffins. I got the recipe at Dawn’s healthy eating party, and I’m obsessed.

I also made these pistachio muffins again, except this time I ran out of pistachios to put on top.

I also finally tried baking cookies with black beans. These cherry fudge thumbprints were so good!

Another thing I baked was grain free upside down apple bread. I didn’t snap a picture of the final product because I did a terrible job cutting the bread, but I finally busted into the coconut sugar that I bought a few weeks ago and wasn’t sure what to do with.

Special Occasions and Out to Eat

Valentine’s Day dinner: homemade pita chips with gouda cheese, roasted beet and goat cheese salad, lamb chops, roasted potatoes, and asparagus

Vday Dinner 2014

A couple of sushi nights in. Who are we?!

Dinner at Koreana, a Korean BBQ restaurant in Central Square. We ordered scallion pancakes to start, and then got steak and scallops with a ton of different sides. The food was decent, but didn’t wow us.

A much more impressive meal out was at Mead Hall in Kendall Square. I am obsessed with this place! They have a ton of craft beers on tap and an awesome menu. A nice mix of splurges and healthy items, but it’s all fresh and good quality. We ordered oysters to start, a pretzel for some carbo loading, and I got the salmon with seared kale, root veggies, and drizzled goat cheese for my meal.

Tavern on the Square brunch. It’s an all you can eat buffet. If you haven’t gone before, I recommend it! I liked that not everything was fattening and gross. I got yogurt with fruit, granola, and coconut, multi-grain nut pancakes, and a sweet potato and goat cheese frittata.

Remember these are just the highlights! I don’t capture every crumb. 😉
