Epic Sandwiches + New Grocery Finds

Goooood Monday morning. Phew, last night was r o u g h. I could not fall asleep to save my life. I’m thinking all my coffee at brunch and then evening mug o’ tea weren’t the brightest choices. 😉 Live and learn.

Friday

Let’s start back on Friday with this delicious bowl of oatmeal topped with homemade baked cinnamon apples, peanut butter, and vanilla creamer. Served with a side of horrible lighting and my shadow over top of it. Lol

Rocked a bright, fall outfit for the day!

Matt went out with friends for a bachelor party, so Kaci and I had a twinkie date! We decided to try the new Stock Burgers just down the road from Matt and my place. Our waitress was so sweet and offered to take our photo for us when she saw us trying to take a selfie.

It was packed!

Is she not adorable?

We began by splitting the Caesar salad. I had asked for the dressing on the side, but they tossed it anyway. It was still good!

We split their black and blue burger and a small order of onion rings. Their portions were so generous, and we couldn’t finish the onion rings. We were pleasantly full and both enjoyed our meal.

When we got back to the house, Kaci and I had some fun with this photo of Jackson. Gah he’s so cute! He loves food so much, so this was perfect for him.

Saturday

Matt got in really late Friday night/Saturday morning. I got up much earlier than him and had Love Grown Strawberry O’s out of our almost empty Peanut Butter & Co. Bees Knees jar with milk and a banana on the side.

SnapChat and bedhead. I have been reading Body Kindness by Rebecca Scritchfield, and it is so amazing! I highly recommend it. I won a signed copy after participating in a Kellogg’s Nutrition webinar. She is one insightful, talented RD!

That face ❤

After enjoying an incredible 30-min. Barre3 workout, I enjoyed this Amy’s GF broccoli cheddar noodle frozen entrée.

I had dark chocolate almonds and a pumpkin spice yogurt covered pretzel for my sweet finish. Then I took a much-needed shower.

I decided to sport my new owl sweater while grocery shopping. It’s so cute!

After making three stops, I finally got home and put away all of my purchases. I enjoyed a fresh date with two Brazil nuts. Dates are sooo good.

lovely sounding soups,

banana bread (totally a splurge purchase),

frozen mashed cauliflower,

22F01E2B-3827-49D4-B298-ABCF7D5DF04C

and cauliflower crust frozen pizza. I have nothing against carbs or traditional crust! It’s very healthy. I just wanted to try this for fun.

I saw this, and it immediately spoke so much truth to me.

Does Rachel look cozy?

I made Kath’s roasted vegetable stacks but admittedly took the lazy route and made ours into bowls. I added some sautéed greens for the added color. Loved the flavor combination!

We tried the new dessert tea, and we each had a slice of the warmed banana bread. I had yogurt with tahini. It was good, but regular, not paleo, reigns supreme. We watched the first episode of the last season of Longmire then called it a night.

Sunday

On Sunday, we had brunch plans at First Watch followed by a movie date to see Thor: Ragnarok. We used First Watch’s app to put our name in line, but it was still quite a wait. It’s such a popular place! SnapChat to pass the time.

Their specials sounded amazing, but I was in the mood for savory.

3B940FE8-C35D-4A8D-8BE8-4D41B6669659

I chose their Elevated Egg Sandwich that included Gruyere, smashed avocado, over easy egg, bacon, and lemon dressed arugula on a brioche bun. I omitted the mayo and subbed a salad instead of the potatoes. Oh man was this good!

Matt ordered us fruit to split. Pineapple was hiding underneath.

Matt chose their Italian omelet.

We killed some time at Whole Foods then made our way to the theater. Awkward selfie before the previews started. Ohmygosh Thor is hilarious!! Awesome action, acting, and Chris Hemsworth. 😉 Highly recommend it!

Once home, I did some meal prep for today, cleaned, and changed to commit to another 30-min. Barre3 workout. It was so tough but so good! I showered then vacuumed before eating my dinner. Intuitive Eating meant having this instead of a “dinner” meal with veg. This included Fage plain Greek yogurt, Love Grown Strawberry O’s, Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Peanut butter, Aldi organic milk, and a perfectly ripe pear. Matt put together sautéed greens, our roasted vegetables, organic canned hot chili beans, and a 90-second chicken rice packet. He gave me two bites, and it was really good. He put together a bowl for me to take for lunch this week.

I sure am hoping I can sleep better tonight. We both had it really awful. I had coffee this morning, but I’ll need to take a break to get myself resituated. I added a splash of Aldi sweet cream creamer, and for some reason, I didn’t like it in my coffee. I love it in yogurt, oatmeal, etc. Just not in the beverage it’s intended for. Haha. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week!
