Random dinners, Paloma’s, & a New Job!

Hiya!!!! How are you?? It’s a sleepy, Saturday morning and I was itching to write a blog post this morning. It’s been a long week, but a good one for sure. Lettuce get started!

I used to eat plain coconut milk yogurt with protein powder ALL THE TIME, but then I took a hiatus. I picked some up at the store this week and have been back to eating it. I forgot how much it tastes like pudding! The picture below is: 1 C unsweetened coconut milk yogurt, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, a few strawberries, and a handful of dark chocolate KIND granola.

Usually in the evenings I cook dinner for my family since I am the first one home. We’ve been getting the Blue Apron meals for a few years now and they make cooking dinner so much easier. When I lived by myself, I usually ate roasted vegetables and a veggie burger EVERY NIGHT. So, it’s fun getting to experiment with different ingredients and food!

With this being the first official week of my new job, alcohol was involved almost every night as I cooked dinner. I needed a pick-me-up. I have been on a Paloma kick lately and they are so refreshing!

One night I put chicken in the pressure cooker for 40 minutes, shredded it, and then mixed it with BBQ sauce. I also made roasted potatoes on the side!

I got home late one night from church and had the house to myself! I made a veggie scramble and avocado toast. For the egg scramble I sautéed a few mushrooms and bell peppers on the stove and then added in 1 egg + 1 egg white.
