Lunch

Breakfast all day everyday, right!  My omelet was topped with uncured peppered turkey bacon, broccoli and mozarella. I’m rationing out the last of my Autumn Harvest bagels from Trader Joe’s. I’m down to 3 bags in my freezer. If you have any suggestions for new bagels I should try, please comment below!

 

Afternoon Snack

I’m loving the Muscle Muffins from Lenny and Larry. The Double Chocolate flavor is so rich and fudgey! I had no trouble eating the entire muffin for my afternoon snack. I have to warn you, the macros are not great but in my opinion worth every bite! The muffins are available in three other flavors; banana, pumpkin and blueberry. I found mine in the refrigerated section of Vitamin Shoppe. Nutrition profile: 43g carbs, 15g protein, 15g fat, 5g fiber.

 

Dinner

I’ve been a bit obsessed with sweet potato noodles lately. Talk about convenience, Green Giant has them ready to go in the produce section. After steaming the noodles, I tossed in pre-cooked ground turkey, steamed broccoli, pasta sauce and mozarella. This dinner took all but 10 minutes to put together!

 

 

Evening Snack

As I was strolling through the aisles at Target, this box mysteriously jumped into my cart! Thin Mints was one of my favorite cookies growing up. Opening the box, the smell is pretty on point. This cereal legitimately tastes like Thin Mints Girl Scouts cookies! The mint hits immediately and it lingers through every bite. It’s not quite as strong as the actual cookie. I ran out of cashew milk and opted to use some of the Organic Chocolate Muscle Milk I had on hand. You might want to put away the box after you pour yourself a bowl, because these bite-size Thin Mints are dangerously addictive.

That’s it for this week’s round up! See you back here on Friday!

  1. Whoa! Never had purple sweet potatoes in oatmeal before, that’s for sure. Intriguing recipe! I love having baked sweet potato rounds with (sorry) homemade guacamole. Love your breakfast-themed day of meals; and obviously I’m especially happy to see the Muscle Milk shake! My fridge is 90% Muscle Milk shakes (the Genuine line, which are the sugar-free ones) 😀 Happy Wednesday, dear Wendy! xo

    • Hey Liz! I fell in love with purple sweet potatoes over a year ago! Fortunately either Trader Joe’s or Wegman’s carries them when in season. I was wondering if that Muscle Milk would catch your eye and it did! My first time trying one and it was awesome on my cereal! xo
