WIAW: Topped With Tahini

October 21, 2015

Happy hump day!

I hope things are going well in your neck of the woods. I’m coming at you live with this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post. I’ve been continually trying to mix things up in my meals, so I hope you enjoy seeing some differentย foods popping up in these parts ๐Ÿ™‚

Breakfast

Currently working my way through 5 empty nut butter jars for overnight oats… 3 down, 2 to go!

Post-Pure Barre breakfast today was overnight oats in a too-empty jar of Trader Joe’s almond butter. I made these oats with 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2/3 scoop of Vega One vanilla protein, and 2/3 cup of unsweetented vanilla almond milk. I let them sit in the jar overnight and topped them with nuked frozen blueberries and fresh raspberries in the morning.

Not going to lie – the promise of a good breakfast is what gets me through 99% of my morning workouts ๐Ÿ™‚

Mid-morning snack

Homemade “trail mix” + an unpictured hardboiled egg.

I made the trail mix by combining raw cashews, a pieceย of Trader Joe’s Just Mango Slices, and a dried turkish apricot.

Lunch

I’ve been eating this lunch the past few days and can’t get enough! A kale salad massaged with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast, topped with mini bell peppers and edamame plus a sweet potato with tahini, a hardboiled egg, and a honeycrisp apple.

For “dessert” I enjoyedย aย Trader Joe’s dark chocolate honey mint. These little guys taste like a York peppermint patty but have only 3 ingredients – honey, dark chocolate liquor, and mint extract.

I’m in love.

Afternoon snack

I have been reunited with Larabars and it feels (and tastes) so good. Iย love their simple ingredient list and trusty tastiness for convenient, healthy snacking. The cashew cookie flavor is my favorite!

Dinner

A good quinoa bowl will never steer you wrong. Tonight I whipped up some turmeric quinoa (quinoa, coconut oil, turmeric, and pink himalayan sea salt) and topped it with roasted broccoli/rainbow carrots/butternut squash/tempeh, pomegranate seeds, & tahini.

These flavors pairedย together like a dream, and the tahini was the perfect cherry on top. I think I could put it on just about anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

Night snack

Back to basics with a little twist. Frozen berries, Wild Friends Sesame Cranberry Peanut Butter, cacao nibs, coconut chips, & Purely Elizabeth granola put in a mini bowl and heated in the microwave until melty.

Deeeelicious.

Does anyone else have a tahini obsession? I can’t get enough!
