{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Food Edition

Yesterday I talked about having one of my goals this week is to eat whatever I want. By this I meant to eat whatever types of food I wanted at any point in the day; to break out of the box a little and really start to have fun with the food I am eating. Today I would like to share with you some pictures that better capture what I mean.

My favorite combination: Sweet & Savory

Watermelon Gazpacho and Vietnamese-style Braised Pork Lettuce Wraps from Tapa Tapa

 
 
 
I had vegetables for breakfast in place of eggs
 

Breakfast: sautéed yellow squash, veggie bacon, and a bowl full of watermelon

 

Breakfast: multi-grain sandwich thin, carrots and hummus, watermelon and a banana for my post-workout snack

 
 
I tried a mix of both raw and cooked veggies with dinner
 

Dinner: barramundi (high in Omega-3), garlicky broccolini, Easter Egg radishes

 

I replaced one of my vegetable sides with a serving of fruit instead

Dinner: turkey burger on multi-grain sandwich thin, homemade vinegar based cole slaw, rainier cherries

 
 
 
I tried out a new snack combo this week; a great combination of light and crisp with rich and creamy. It makes for an excellent treat!
 

My new favorite sweet snack: Biscoff spread on Magic Pop

 

Trust me; it tastes a million times better than it looks. For only two WW points you get a wonderfully delicious treat the size of a medium paper plate. Yum!

 

What are you doing to keep mealtimes interesting? Any new foods you have tried out recently?

Thanks for reading!

    What on earth are Biscoff Spread and Magic Pop???

    • Dacia replied:

      Lol! I will do my best to describe each. Magic pop are Korean snack cakes. There is a little stand in one of our grocery stores where they are popped fresh. They are made from wheat, brown rice and corn. Only 15 calories, no fat and 4 carbs. I guess you can say they are like rice cakes except they are large and thin and very light and delicate. Biscoff spread has a consistency of nutella, a little thinner than peanut butter. It tastes like biscoff cookies (which on a sidenote are the cookies delta serves in flight) which if you have never had them they are kind of like a mild gingerbread cookie. It has Ginger and cinnamon and is very yummy. So basically spreading it on to a magic pop yields something that tastes as if I was eating a biscoff cookie. Hope that helps!

      Thanks. Each night is like a food adventure. Although i could use some new breakfast ideas for during the week. Any ideas?

    I decided to give this whole “eating what I want” thing a try and had a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich and a Smart Ones pasta dish for breakfast this morning! If I gain weight this week, I’m holding you accountable! LOL! Actually, it’s my TOM again so I figured I mix it up a bit with my eating and see if I can still manage a loss this week!

    • Dacia replied:

      As long as you are eating healthy and watching your points than I think you will be ok. I love that you ate ice cream and pasta for breakfast. That’s awesome! I hate TOM weeks- they screw everything up. Hopefully you can still manage a loss. I have faith you will do well!
