Good morning everyone!! How are you doing today? I am still trying to get over this stomach issue, but other than that I am feeling pretty good and this week is flying by!
It is no secret that I love to travel. My husband and I love exploring new places together and going back to old familiar places that bring back great memories. While on vacation I do tend to eat pretty close to my normal eating patterns so that I don’t feel sick or bloated from a lot of new foods. I do, however, like to indulge in a
lot few alcoholic beverages and some desserts. It is vacation after all. But I try to be mindful because I am also not usually doing the same types of hard workouts that I do at home. As fun as indulging on vacation is, I am always SO ready to get back to my normal eating patterns when I get home. Have I mentioned that I love routine? I could eat the same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday for a week and be happy. I don’t only because my husband would fire me as head chef if I made him eat the same things every single day. Marriage is all about compromise. 😉
You all know by now that I LOVE salads! In order to keep the hubs happy, I try to mix them up a bit to keep them interesting! It has been so nice to be back in my kitchen making salads bigger than my head. 🙂 Here are some recent eats that I am loving!
Romaine lettuce, craisins, chopped almonds, strawberries, leftover grilled salmon and this raspberry walnut dressing! So good!
I love fresh corn on the cob!! It makes an excellent addition (raw) to a salad! Romaine, fresh corn, strawberries, grilled tofu and zucchini and raspberry walnut vinaigrette.
Terrible picture (sorry!) but a yummy salad with lots of veggies (carrots, cucumber, corn), grilled tofu and zucchini, almonds, and lots of homemade guacamole! (We have managed to keep our cilantro plant alive, which is a miracle if you know me.)
I love veggie burgers for an easy dinner with a salad, sliced avocado, and oven-roasted sweet potato fries!
I just needed to show you guys this picture of my grilled tofu because I LOVE grill marks (I know, I am so strange) and I think I have perfected my tofu grilling technique! I used to put the tofu in a veggie basket on the grill, but lately I have been putting the tofu straight onto the grill and I am loving the way it turns out. I hate mushy tofu so the extra texture from the grill marks is amazing!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!!
