Just a quick random thing – since there was no MIMM post on Monday and no pics of the weekend (the wedding of Sandro’s brother), I post very few now – I got them yesterday from the bride! Sandro was best man for his brother and it was a rare moment that day to have him by my side 🙂
But now on to the subject of this Wednesday……Welcome to another round of What I Ate Wednesday, the favorite day of us foodies, since we get to stalk everyone’s eats.
Head on over to Mrs Peas and Crayons to check out more great meals and foodspiration!!
Some of you may have seen that the #plantainlove exploded around the blogger world, thanks to the twins aka #plantainqueens! I had a hard time finding some, but last week I was finally successful!
Since Sandro and me are the grill-masters, we threw it on the BBQ, topped with some coconut oil and catfish on the side.
I made a fresh salad with it and added in some apricots – LOVE that fruit currently!!
I used the second one for my ‘brunch’ on Friday morning….
…..and then returned to an old favorite lately for dinner – the Eggie-Shirataki-Zucchetti Bowl.
Unfortunately I did not take my phone to the wedding on the weekend that’s why I have NO pic at all of the marvelous food we had! So I have to bore you with my ordinary meals from Tuesday aka my Leg Day:
Oats-Spinach-Eggwhite Omelette for breakfast – and half of an unpictured grapefruit on the side. I ADORE the combo of eggwhites and oats! Even better sweetened up with cinnamon and vanilla.
Post-Legday-HIIT (Did I mention that leg workouts are the ones I want to be over with asap? – Talk about Love-Hate-Relationship.) Protein Blueberry Smoothie:
Lunch: Chicken marinated in coconut milk and Mc Cornick California Chicken Spice-mix (unpictured) with a side of a small sweet potato and broccoli
Mid-afternoon Snack: Low Fat Curd Cheese with blueberries…
And dinner: Some leftover coconut chicken with brown quinoa, avocado and spinach salad drizzled with a dressing made of olive oil, acv, lemon juice and salad herbs. Super super delicious.
That’s it for today!
Did you eat plantains before? How did you cook them? The twins have some AMAZING recipes on their blog!!
