Breakfast

A delicious breakfast creation by Jon. He’s been really into slow scrambled eggs lately. These eggs were atop toasted baguette, avocado and tomato coulis.

A splurge breakfast! Chocolate croissant from Piquant paired with my morning latte.

I’ve been on an avocado toast kick lately. This was mashed avocado, lox and goat cheese. Hard boiled egg on the side for extra protein.

More avocado toast! Thin layer of onion and chive cream cheese, sliced avocado and lox.

After an indulgent day the next day I like to balance out with a colorful salad. Spinach, cucumber, radish, artichokes, hearts of palm and sundried tomatoes.

More salad! Turkey, a nice cheese that friends brought over, sundried tomatoes and spinach.

This was a meal I whipped together when I thought “there was nothing to eat”. Tomato soup and half a grilled cheese with horseradish cheddar and turkey bacon.

Mmm Bodega for lunch is one of my favs! Pork, rice, black beans and sweet plantains. *drool*

Sandwiches from Pom Pom’s! Jon and I like to split. This was there tuna melt and the turkey with bacon.

We tried Roux for brunch just yesterday and it was delicious! Love their bloody mary’s and this jambalaya was full of flavor and cajun spice.

This was a new pinterest recipe I tried and it was one of the best quinoa casseroles I’ve had to date! Chicken Chili Quinoa Casserole with chicken, black beans, corn and kale.

I had been craving a huge cobb salad for awhile and finally made one. And it was everything I had dreamed of. Roasted chicken, hard boiled eggs, avocado, radish, cucumber, tomato, turkey bacon and creamy ranch dressing.

I tried this new quinoa pizza crust, which was a yummy and healthy alternative to regular pizza. Find the recipe here.

Before a yoga workshop I wanted a light dinner and sushi from Fresh Market fit the bill!

Notes: This week will definitely be a wonky one. I have a few celebratory get togethers this week (more on that later) plus a wedding this weekend…so I have a feeling some of my planned workouts will take a back seat. Really hope to still get my long run in on Sunday. However, celebrating with friends > running. I’m just going to counteract the lack of workouts with super healthy eats!
