Weekly Food Highlights

Here are a few meals from this week that have been really enjoyable. Hope they spark some inspiration for you!

Breakfast

This was one of my best bowls of savory oatmeal! I used one packet of Bakery on Main Ancient Grains instant oats made with milk, water, garlic powder, salt, and smoked paprika. I then wilted in fresh spinach, melted in aged sharp white cheddar, topped with an over easy egg, and sprinkled it with Everything Bagel seasoning. I shared a slow-motion video on Ig of breaking into the yolk. ‘Twas fabulous.

I got this idea from both Abbey Sharp and Daisy brand cottage cheese. To boost the protein of avocado toast, Abbey suggested blending with white beans. I decided to blend my avocado with Daisy cottage cheese that I split between two slices of Aldi “seedtastic” organic toast. I sprinkled Everything Bagel seasoning on one and topped the other with thawed Wyman’s of Maine blueberry/strawberry/cherry/kale blend. Try it! The creaminess was oh so perfect.

I used Erin’s latest berry turmeric smoothie recipe as a loose guide in making this smoothie bowl. I combined Aldi’s frozen sweet potato, mandarin orange, mango, pineapple blend with frozen kiwi and grapes, Greek yogurt, milk, spinach, turmeric, pepper medley, ginger, and vanilla. I topped with with a sprinkle of raw oats, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios, roasted pepitas, and Nutzo.

Lunch

For lunch on Wednesday, I enjoyed this frozen entrée by Saffron Road: Enchiladas Al Chiptole, which included garlic rice and mesquite black beans. I crunched on some carrots on the side. I decided to save that truffle for later and instead had yogurt with the last of part of our salted chocolate pb oat bars by Alexis.

The other day when I picked up some photos at Walgreens, it dawned on me that I had not visited a local bagel shop in years. So for lunch I treated myself to a lox pumpernickel bagel with cream cheese, tomato, and onion. Half satisfied me, so I saved the othe half for the next day!

Gotta have that pickle with it!

Dinner

I made this quick meal one evening that came together nicely. I sauteed zucchini and peppers until tender then added a can of drained tuna along with spices. I tossed in a bag of frozen cooked Bird’s Eye zucchini lentil pasta. It had an awesome texture! I finished it with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Matt realized that capers would’ve been a wonderful addition. Next time!

I made Sara’s creamy tomato soup along with roasted seasoned potatoes and greens drizzled with Newman’s Own creamy Caesar.

I’ve had this in my desk drawer for several weeks and finally was craving it. I had it after lunch as a mint. 🙂

  1. Lox on pumpernickel bread sounds like the greatest combo of all time. YUMMMMMMM! Have you tried the Trader Joe’s soups?! We are on a serious kick with their tomato & tomato crackers right now! Also, blending the avocado with beans is brilliant. I have been having a lot of avocado toast lately, and I feel like that is something I need to try asap. Thanks for always sharing such awesome ideas, Kori!

    1. Lox is my fav! I need to get TJ’s soups – we haven’t had them in forever! I love TJ’s but don’t shop there nearly enough because of living on the other side of town. I’m glad you liked these meal ideas!
