Meals and Snacks Lately

in Other

Because we are long overdue for a Meals and Snacks Lately post!

And because I know I am not the only crazy who loves stalking others’ food habits, hence my extreme love of Instagram.

Here’s what I’ve been munchin’ on lately, all via my iPhone and Insta!

Meals and Snacks Lately

Breakfasts

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI am totally that weird person who eats tuna/salmon salad for breakfast.  But what can I say?  I was craving it!  I wrapped it in collards and paired it with roasted brussels sprouts and fresh watermelon.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI have been trying to get green smoothies back into my life.  I’m still not entirely sure how my body feels about them, but we’ll see how it goes.  This one had water, ice, frozen blueberries, frozen banana, frozen zucchini, frozen spinach, collagen peptides, vitamins D/K2 drops, carob powder, and peanut butter.  AKA: a healthy chocolate peanut butter milkshake.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comAnd since smoothies do not keep me full all morning, I have been pairing them with some form of protein and veggies.  On this day it was an uncured bacon Epic bar and more roasted brussels.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comOn Saturday I was majorly craving scrambled eggs.  I scrambled them in red palm oil to give them a bit of a buttery taste.  The eggs were paired with sauerkraut, greens, and sweet potato fries with coconut butter.

Lunches

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comThis is what I like to call a hodgepodge of veggies and meat with lots of guac on top.  I based it off of this recipe, and I loved the addition of fried plantains this time.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comMy mom and I had a girls’ lunch at Trumpet Blossom Cafe a little while back.  The restaurant is vegan and very gluten-free-friendly.  This plate was made up of fried polenta cakes, greens, tempeh, and pickled beets.  It was delish!

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comJeremy and I are obsessed with nachos right now.  This bowl was piled high with butter lettuce, blue corn tortilla chips (trying out the corn), taco seasoned ground turkey, green and red onions, black olives, and tons of guacamole.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI absolutely adore my Epic bar hash, but decided to change it up a bit by subbing in pan-fried chicken thighs for the bacon bar.  This was good, but the original is still my favorite!

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comWho else has been loving the sunshine?  This past Friday I ate my lunch outside with a good book.  These leftovers were made up of AIP meatballs, roasted parsnips, and crispy collards and kale.

Dinners

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comFor some reason I was craving a kale salad (weird for me), so I went with it!  This meal consisted of kale massaged with the dressing from this salad.  I piled cucumbers, raisins, sprouted pumpkin seeds, and chicken thighs pan-fried in red palm oil on top.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comMy taco topped fried plantains with cilantro lime white rice on repeat.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comJeremy and I tried out a new-to-us barbecue spot, Pop’s Old and New BBQ, the other evening for date night.  All of their meat is gluten-free, which I loved!  I ordered the burnt ends sans bun and a side of herb and garlic sweet potato fries.  Those fries were on point.  Jeremy’s regular salt and pepper fries were darn delicious, too!

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comVeggie burgers from Hilary’s when absolutely nothing else sounded good.  I ate them on butter lettuce with horseradish mustard and fresh watermelon on the side.

Snacks

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comMore smoothies!  I am not only drinking them as part #1 of my breakfast, but also for afternoon snacks on the weekends.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI cleaned out the bottom of an almost-empty jar of Artisana raw coconut butter.  I buy mine from Thrive Market for almost $4 cheaper than the normal price!

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI have found a new crunchy treat to obsess over: pork rinds!  These are literally just pork skin and salt.  I know it sounds weird, but don’t knock them until you try ’em.  P.S. I buy these bags from Aldi for only 99 cents!

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comWhen there is an open bar cocktail hour at a wedding, you definitely order a tequila sunrise.

Meals and Snacks Lately: May 9, 2016 | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comLet’s end things with something sweet.  Last week I ate quite a few AIP Paleo brownies topped off with my favorite sunflower seed butter.  My brownie craving was officially smashed.

      It's in Iowa City! They have some pretty good restaurants around here, but not as good as Omaha ;)

      I used to be a sweet breakfast only kind of girl, but I have recently really expanded my horizons... obviously :)

    I have been eating roasted brussels like mad lately! I just can't get enough of them! And this is going to sound nuts, but I finally put sunflower seed butter on my grocery list for the week! I still have yet to try it but I'm obsessed with sunflower seeds so I'm thinking it's going to be good :) Ashley recently posted...Roasted Strawberries and Cream Steel Cut OatmealMy Profile

      Yay! I hope you love the sunflower seed butter as much as I do. I do think it has a bit of an acquired taste, especially if you are used to PB, so don't give up on it if you don't LOVE it right away!
  • Katie May 9, 2016, 8:31 pm
    That BBQ looks amazing!!! yum!! I also finally made a green smoothie for the first time in a long time, i cursed my blender for a minute of two because it didn't blend as quickly as I would have liked, but it turned out delicious! Katie recently posted...Wait, ChooseMy Profile

      Yay for green smoothies AND barbecue... two of the best things!
  • Amanda May 10, 2016, 1:12 pm
    It is not weird that you like salmon salad for breakfast! Well at least you're not the only one who likes that flavor at breakfast time. I LOVE smoked salmon and cream cheese on toast or a bagel. I could eat it almost every day! Thank you for sharing!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 10, 2016, 2:13 pm
      That is so true. I totally forgot that combination is a breakfast meal. Thanks! ;)

      They are really, really good! I was freaked out by them at first, but now I LOVE them.

      Yes! I've been finding good things (like grassfed beef) at Aldi lately!
  • Tara | Treble in the Kitchen May 12, 2016, 7:45 am
    I have GOT to try sweet potato fries with coconut butter!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 12, 2016, 8:28 am
