I lied…there will be words.
In the almost three weeks that I’ve been home I haven’t taken many pictures of food. Oddly enough, I’ve had some of the best meals and they all deserved photographs. Not like I would have taken good photos anyway…
In other news, there’s something about having a fully stocked fridge (or the ability to buy lots of food
via mom’s credit card) that makes me so happy. One of the many perks of living at home for a bit ;)
No pictures of snacks but I can assure you that a lot of nut butter was consumed.
Breakfasts lately have overnight oats or *shocker* regular ol’ oatmeal. One day is one version, the next day is the next. Monday was overnight oats with chia seeds, almond milk, sunflower butter and strawberries.
Lunches are typically “everything but the kitchen sink” salads. Mixed greens, protein, nuts/seeds, avocado, vegetables and any leftovers from dinner. Leftovers are the best, right?! Leftover salmon is like winning the lottery. Kinda, not really.
And yes, even though I’m home I still eat out of ugly plastic mixing bowls. This was actually an empty fruit bowl container from last week. Recycle, folks.
For dinner on Monday I went out to eat with my family, including my grandfather who was in town for my sister’s graduation. I had a steak salad with grilled asparagus, tomatoes, arugula and I asked for avocado. I was shocked that this meal didn’t naturally come with avocado. Avocado obviously makes everything 10x better.
Other notable meals have included: Roasted turkey with potatoes, zoodles (duh), honey-ginger chicken, fro-yo, SUSHI, roasted sweet potatoes, grilled veggies (summer grilling >>>) and enough watermelon to sink a battleship.
The next food round-up will be filled with NYC meals. To say I’m excited is an understatement.
