With all of my posts from South Africa, I haven’t showed you much of what we’ve been chomping on over here! What better way than to show some recent eats than to link up with the WIAW crew?
I have all these random food images saved on my phone from the last few weeks so consider this post just a way of showing them all to you!
Toasts with eggs and oranges. I am loving citrus fruits right now. Plus, I’m sure all this Vitamin C has got to be helpin’ a girl out. I’ve had the sniffles for the last two weeks. I think some of it is pregnancy congestion – is that a thing?
Egg, turkey sausage and cheese sandwich from Bruegger’s. Sometimes before my early clients, I treat myself to coffee and a bagel. It gives me something to look forward to after an early wake up call. It seems to be working out well.
A mixture of overnight oats + yogurt + fruit + cereal + PB. I know it looks great but it’s so creamy and delicious.
Eggo waffles with all the toppings! These coconut chips are my favorite. Granola for a little crunch, yogurt for a little creamy and fruit for a little sweet.
Pecan Dark chocolate pumpkin bread (sans pecans for me–> allergy) with peanut butter.
Sourdough bread with sunbutter and raisins, plus some necessary chocolate.
Cake pops and latte’s for a coffee date with Sam!
Gingerbread cookies – these turned out amazing! Would highly recommend this recipe. I made these on Sunday night, thinking they would last the week to take to Pennsylvania for the holidays, but NO WAY. I ate three on Sunday night and two on Monday for breakfast. They are too good to resist!
Lots of pizza! My pizza kick continues.
Red potato pizza with rosemary and a peppermint cannoli! Inizio pizza had us in to try their new seasonal pizza, which was delicious.
Steak fajitas from Mestizo, a local mexican joint. Have been eating out more lately because I’ve been catching up with friends and coworkers, but also because I’m still not really feeling cooking, unless it’s super easy. I’m purposely buying less groceries.
Sheet pan shrimp and veggies <– This is an EASY recipe with minimal clean up that I can handle. We ate 3 batches of this last week.
I have been really enjoying having some sweets in my afternoon snacks. It seems that’s when I’m craving sweets the most. And by letting myself enjoy it then, I stop thinking about it the rest of the day. This is what I tell clients when they start to freak out about sugar intake over the holidays. There really is no reason to freak out – if you let yourself have a cookie every single day, eventually you will not want a cookie. But if you still want that cookie every single day, that’s okay too. It may be meeting an emotional or physical need for you. You don’t need to view sugar as evil over the holidays.
If we micromanaged or thought about fruits and veggies as much as we demonized sugars, I think we’d be pretty surprised at how much our intake balances out in the long run.
