Not Food Porn

I decided to make a post of things I typically eat.  I am a person who gets easily bored so I can't stick to the same type of food everyday.  I am also the kind of person who if I like a song I was listen to it on repeat for a LONNNGG time and I do the same with food - if I find something I really like, I eat it extremely often (as you will notice).  These are a few of the things I commonly eat!

Breakfast:
Eggs are HUGE for me.




I don't have pictures of it but I do eat a lot of hard and soft boiled eggs or sunny side up especially on sandwiches.  Life hack: make a bunch of hard boiled eggs at the beginning of the week & keep them in the fridge, then in the morning slice one up, throw it on some toast with some bacon and you have a 1 minute egg sandwich to go. 

Eggs and avocado, as shown above, is one of my favorite combos! Also in most of the pictures above is bacon - I do eat turkey bacon, the microwaved kind, and regular bacon, oven baked. I either just eat my scramble, avocado or bacon or I put it on some toast with some tomatoes and top with lettuce instead of a second piece of toast because sometimes that is too much bread for me. 

Other breakfasts for me are either: 

Berries, granola and yogurt


And I don't have a picture but I also quite often eat oatmeal mixed with a splash of milk, half and half and topped with some cereal - stir it all together and it is soo yummy! Not the most appetizing looking thing but I also add banana and sometimes peanut butter and it will keep you full for a while because I have some pretty long classes that I need to sit through!

I also do eat protein pancakes and waffles, and regular too but not as often! Occasionally on the weekends I make myself some french toast just to switch things up!

Snacks:

9 times out of 10 I am eating cottage cheese with berries as a snack.


This is my favorite kind of cottage cheese, it already has pineapple mixed in and so adding some raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries or even eating it alone, it's a nice sweet treat and I am OBSESSED.

I also am a big fruit snacker, I typically have either a banana or apple or orange on me at most times throughout the day unless I have already eaten it.


Or I whip up a smoothie with some protein powder if I'm extra hungry.

Lunch

For lunch I typically want something quick. 


I either grab a salad or have already made one - I add tons of different veggies and typically chicken as a source of protein.  I also eat pita's with my left over veggies and some mustard with horseradish in it.  The picture above has: deli chicken, spinach, red bell pepper, onion, cucumber, tomato, feta, and mustard with a side of berries because I felt like it. 

My open faced BLT with some A

I was eating this so much that on days that I didn't my roommate would ask me if I was feeling okay. The picture above doesn't have lettuce but I typically do, I was out that day.  This is one of my favorite meals, I LOVE BLTs and I love avocado; not so much mayo so if I use any at all it is a very tiny amount!

Dinner

Now I know that people are all about decreasing carbs and starchy veggies for dinner but I don't really do that, I just try to keep my plates pretty balanced.  I am a meat and potatoes girl; I grew up eating that and that's how many of my dinners are modeled.  I don't actually have a picture of any steak and potatoes (or chicken and potatoes with either corn or brussels sprouts) but I do eat that quite a bit.  I also bake sweet potatoes and white potatoes home fries style and will either eat it as a snack or as one of my sides with my dinner.


I really like pasta.  Above is spaghetti, chicken and asparagus - I had already eating a bunch of the asparagus while I was waiting for the rest of my food to cook.  Another meal I have often is spaghetti, or whatever pasta I have on hand, grated parm cheese, black pepper, steak, and veggies.

I am also a big rice eater.  Brown rice, rice pilaf, jasmine rice, etc. 



I made turkey meatballs one night, as an experiment, and they actually came out very good!  I switch up my meats throughout the week so I'm not always eating the same thing.  I typically always rotate through chicken, fish or shrimp, and steak depending on what I have on hand.



This was my dinner the other day and I ended up having the left overs for lunch the next day because I could not wait to eat it.  The fish above and the baby scallops (I swear they are in this picture) are both the Bumble Bee Super Fresh frozen line and I absolutely love them!  I've tried most of the products in that line and I they're amazing; they're also wicked easy to make.

Above I had the baby scallops from Bumble Bee, a brown rice and quinoa and lentils, and some steamed super sweet corn.  The rice mix I bought on a whim from Wegmans - its microwavable and if you can't tell by this post I'm all about the easy way of making food.  I need to get more packets of this stuff, it was SO good.

I don't really know if this post is going to be helpful for anyone, I mainly just wanted to talk about foods I like and my go to's.  I also like knowing what other people eat - like the "what I eat in a day" videos on youtube.. Idk why, maybe (definitely) I'm weird.  
Let me know if you've tried any of these or plan on trying these!
