Hellllo my loves! I have a really fun post for you today! I’ve been doing What I Ate posts since the beginning of my blog, so there’s nothing new there, BUT…I’ve never done a video and actually filmed my meals throughout the day and provided recipes for each thing. I hope you guys enjoy it and if you do, please let me know below so I can know whether or not this format is something you would like to see more often!
And now that you’ve seen what I ate, here is how you can make each dish:
3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2T chia seeds
1T maple syrup
1T organic raw almond butter
Place all of the ingredients in a jar or bowl and mix well. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, stir well and top with whatever you’d like! I usually go for berries and cacao nibs, coconut flakes, chopped walnuts, flax seeds, or apple slices with cinnamon. You can really make this whatever you’d like it to be!
AVOCADO KALE SALAD WITH CHICKEN
2 cups chopped kale
1/2 avocado, cubed
1T dijon mustard
2tsp. low sodium tamari
1T olive oil
sprinkle of sea salt
6oz. sliced chicken breast
Place all ingredients except the chicken in a bowl and massage well. Top with sliced chicken breast cooked to your preference. I like to bake mine, but this was grilled from the night before with just a little olive oil, sea salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic.
ROASTED SALMON WITH ASPARAGUS
1 6oz filet of salmon
1/2 bunch of asparagus
drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
garlic powder, to taste
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place the salmon and washed and trimmed asparagus on a baking sheet. Season the salmon with sea salt, garlic powder, and pepper to your taste preference. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil and season the same way. Roast the salmon and asparagus for 10-12 minutes until the salmon is cooked to your temperature liking. If necessary, remove the asparagus from the tray if it is done and you want to cook the salmon all the way through. Enjoy!
I hope you guys enjoy these meals and that your week is off to a great start! I will see you in my next post!!
