Hello friends! It’s Ashley…returning from my bloggity hiatus! I missed the blog quite a bit, but I’m so happy that Lynda was able to fully take over while I was gone. A lot has happened in the last month…some of it wonderful and some of it, well, not so wonderful. Things are finally settling down now and I am feeling more like my old Ashley Pants self. I will explain more in an upcoming post, I promise! For now though I will just tell you all about the yummy foods I ate today.
I made a packet of instant oatmeal because I didn’t have time to cook my usual oatmeal. The brand is Nature’s Path and it’s called Blueberry Cinnamon Flax. It’s pretty good for something quick in the morning. I made mine with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I also fried one egg to go with it. I also had coffee, of course, but I failed to get it in the picture.
My Lunch wasn’t all that exciting. I had a turkey sandwich with pepper jack cheese and mustard on some Ezekiel bread. I toasted it in the toaster oven. I also made a smoothie, which actually turned out to be more of a slushy. The “smoothie” consists of about 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, a handful of baby spinach, and a cup or so of coconut water. It was very good! A little thick, but that can be easily fixed by adding more water, I just didn’t care that much. The pineapple makes it naturally perfectly sweet. And look how pretty it is!
My dinner was Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken…a recipe I found on Pinterest. I’m not sure what to call this, but it ended up being a burrito bowl of some sort. The recipe is really simple. It’s pretty much chicken breasts, corn, black beans, tomatoes, and spices all thrown in the crock pot and cooked for several hours. It’s really good over rice and/or with chips. I added some salsa and some Trader Joe’s spicy guacamole on top. The recipe can be found here. I also ate some Trader Joe’s Quinoa and Black Bean infused Tortilla chips with it! I drank more H2O…
Now we are all caught up to right now. I’m not eating anything, but I have to say I wouldn’t hate it if that ice cream in the freezer somehow magically ended up in a bowl and then in my belly. I’m not gonna do it though! I hope you guys have a wonderful night. I’m looking forward to posting on here more regularly again. Thanks for reading! xoxo
