Hi, Friends! Let’s do the blog and recap a bit of yesterday, shall we? Before Physical Therapy, I had 3 peanut butter protein balls. For once I wasn’t that hungry when I got home I was just EXHAUSTED, so I made a cup of coffee and got down on chores. Dishes, laundry, etc… until I got hungry around 11am and made chorizo that had been calling my name in the fridge. (picture removed it was not appetizing looking)
Ingredients: 1/2 onion chopped, 1lb turkey chorizo (whole foods), 4 eggs, zucchini, and spinach. With a side of roasted sweet potato (coconut oil and cinnamon) that I prepped Sunday night. So good!
I finished up chores and got on our National Nutrition Call. Before I headed out the door for work I had this super creamy delicious 100% grass fed yogurt with 1/4 scoop of Formulx Protein Powder (affiliate link). On sale at Fry’s for a dollar, I want to go buy 16 thousand more of them!
That held me over until dinner, which I was so thankful that I had prepped on Sunday. I made a skillet with organic White Wine Ground Turkey (another Whole Foods find), 1/2 chopped onion, and a bag of organic chopped Tuscan kale. I also roasted three delicata squash (tossed in 1/3 cup olive oil, sprinkled with garlic and rosemary.) Another winning meal!
The Adult Lunchable
Speaking of winning meals, let’s talk my recent lunches. Remember when I used to take the same salad to work every single day? Those days are gone, replaced by the adult Lunchable.
Here is how you build your own:
Anything you don’t mind eating cold-
- Natural Organic Uncured Lunch Meat- Chicken, Turkey, Bison, Beef, Ham (ideally free-range/grass-fed for optimal nutrition)
- Smoked Salmon
- Shrimp Cocktail (weird I know but it works)
- Uncured Natural Nitrate Free Bacon or Turkey Bacon
- Hard-boiled Eggs
2. Healthy Fats
- Avocado cubes/slices
- Organic Grassfed Cheese or Goatmilk Cheese slices/cubes
- Guacamole for dipping veggies
- Hummus for dipping veggies
Think ones you can easily eat with your hands!
- cucumber slices
- baby carrots
- snap peas
- cherry tomatoes
- zucchini slices
No launchable is complete without goodies!
- Small Piece of Fruit
- 100% natural whole fat or 2% yogurt (minimal added sugar)
- Dark Chocolate
Recently my favorite combination is grass fed deli meat bison (Whole Foods), cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado. I love to wrap the bison around the avocado slices, it is absolutely DELICIOUS!
I love the adult Lunchable because it takes about zero minutes to pack and is full of delicious healthy food. I find that if I eat too little (aka I don’t pack my salad with enough stuff on it) I’m miserable and hungry. If I pack too heavy of a meal (like dinner leftovers) I can get sluggish. The adult healthy “Lunchable” has been awesome for me because it fills me up, I can eat it quick, and it doesn’t over stuff me! My “goodie” is usually a yogurt but sometimes an orange or apple.
Chat with me:
What’s your favorite “adult” launchable combination?
What was your favorite Lunchable as a kid?
I never did care for the pizza ones, even as a kid I could sense that wasn’t really food. However, I LOVED the classic turkey, cheese, and cracker combo.
