Cheers! Here is a recap of some of my recent eats:
For breakfast one morning I made a make-shift cereal from oats, mashed banana, cinnamon, and peanut butter. (Sort of like cereal meets oatmeal but good for summer weather and when you forget to make overnight oats the night before!)
On another day I made one of Anne’s banana and egg pancakes for Mazen and myself.
We each had half, and I served them the same way: cut up into little pieces. He loved it! Mine was drizzled in almond butter, with peach and coconut.
Next I had smoothie day! Chocolate Vega protein powder mixed with banana, oats, milk, and berries. Served with some French-press coffee!
And finally, a nice yogurt parfait with berries and some of the Great Harvest Gluten X Cinnamon Chip!
Lunches are all over the place – I have been eating on the fly a lot. But here’s a nice home lunch of greens with salmon salad on top (and Whole Foods Everything Crackers for scooping).
On another day I had leftover pesto soup with a Lumi green juice.
This guy is seriously a vegetable lover’s drink! You can really taste the greens and cucumber inside it. Salad in a bottle! Ingredients: Organic Cucumber, Organic Kale, Organic Spinach, Organic Collard Greens, Organic Lemon.
And leftover Mediterranean salad with fancy Nut-Thins for scooping.
Good news for the locals: ACAC is now going to have rooftop service! Sounds dangerous….!
And finally, some dinners. Post-soccer saute of chicken sausage, leftover rice, a little veggie broth, and frozen peppers. It was quite good thanks to having so much flavor in the chicken sausage.
I picked up some ravioli and Puttanesca sauce from Mona Lisa Pasta and served it with some sautéed zucchini on the side.
Plus, a single piece of buf mozzarella!
And lastly, Cook Smarts Teriyaki Pork Meatballs. The sauce on these was soooo good! I’m hoping to get back to regular Cook Smarts meals again soon, because they never disappoint!
Not pictured: Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked. Hurts so good.
I decided to give Blue Apron a shot thanks to Anne’s recent post with a discount code. Matt and I are to receive our first order this Friday! I don’t know if I’ll maintain the subscription simply because the cost without a discount is steep for us. But I’m excited to try one of these meal plan services! As always, I love all of your meals, and I actually love oats soaked overnight, cooked, or simply added to milk shortly before eating. They’re amazing in so many forms!

Omg rooftop service? That sounds like my mother’s dream summer. I certainly wouldn’t say no… 😉

I love that first picture of you two! <3

That salmon salad always looks sooo good! Wish we had canned salmon easily available in Denmark…
I can’t help but think that you eat quite small meals? 6 ravioli, a bit of squash and a price of mozzarella just looks like quite few calories – especially for a very active person like yourself. What are your thoughts on this? I know that you’ve used calorie counting in the past, and probably have a kind of backbone feel of how many are in each of your meals to balance it…
I just try to eat intuitively, so maybe I had a big lunch that day? I also have noticed that my appetite is a bit lower than it was years ago – perhaps because I’m eating richer foods so I need less or maybe because I’m not quite as active as I used to be. I’d say that the ravioli dinner portions were pretty good ones for a weeknight meal.

Your meals/snacks look awesome! So many good ideas. Thanks for sharing & inspiring.
How do you make your salmon salad? Looks similar to the sardine salad you do – which I love – but since the fish have slightly different flavors I was wondering if you do anything different. Thanks!
Very much like my sardine salad – a little mayo, little mustard, dill, capers, salt and pepper
That salmon salad looks amazing! Is the recipe on your blog?
Yes it’s very similar to ones I’ve made in the past – salmon and sardine salad.
