Most “What I Ate Wednesdays”, I try to switch up my meals, at least just a little bit. Of course, I always start my morning with a smoothie. (Unless it’s the weekend, then it’s usually yogurt with fruit and granola.) But, usually, I try to make it more exciting since I’m displaying what I eat to the public.
In all honesty, I eat the same thing pretty much every day. These are my go-to meals, the things that I always make sure I’m stocked up with every single week so I know I at least have something to eat if we don’t have leftovers. To me, this is comfort food. It’s no “Mom’s home cooked meals”. No, I live with my parents right now and I think they’ve cooked maybe 2 meals for me so far. (Don’t worry, Matt’s made his famous homemade pizza for them and now my mom refuses to eat any other pizza). I don’t particularly like “heavy” food either that people typically think of as comfort food, like mashed potatoes, meatloaf, potpie, etc.
This is comfort food to me…
A mango banana strawberry smoothie with vanilla protein powder.
A salad with tomatoes, broccoli, avocado, cheddar cheese, chickpeas, and hummus with some cheddar Popchips tortilla chips on the side.
A chocolate truffle to “complete” my meal.
A protein bar for an afternoon snack (these are a new favorite).
A baked sweet potato with chickpeas, broccoli, cheese, and buffalo wing sauce.
And of course, some M&Ms for dessert.
Completely satisfying. Completely delicious. And a little bit of everything in moderation, my eating philosophy. What are your comfort foods?
