Stuff I’ve Put In My Mouth Lately

28 Apr

I have been trying to stay on point with eating.  (Hold on a sec while I put this Easter candy down…it’s so hard to type with just one hand!)  ANYWAY, to me clean eating isn’t steamed broccoli and grilled chicken with a seasoned rub.  I honestly think I would die.  I love flavor, food, and cooking too much and that feels like throwing in the towel.  Instead, I try to make smart choices and use whole, healthy ingredients.  Running also helps.  So does moderation.  😉

Here are some of my favorite eats from last week:

A few days after Easter, I realized that we weren’t going to eat the leftover ham unless I got creative.  (Big shout out to my mom for leaving a bunch of cloves in the ham, so I got a mouthful of potpourri not once, but TWICE.  ON TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS).  So, into a frittata with the leftover asparagus that didn’t get cooked with Easter dinner, some spinach that’s been hanging around, and a bit of shredded pepper jack cheese:

Ham-Asparagus-Spinach-Frittata-Easter-Leftovers

of course this monstrosity is my own creation

Some semi-clean comfort food that got us through the chilly days:

It tastes like comfort food, but its just 363 calories per serving.  The 33.7 g of protein pack a huge punch and it’s healthy carb heavy.  I subbed in almond milk, so I know mine was lower in fat than the original recipe.  I love it when I feel like I’m having a cheat meal but it’s still pretty clean!  This stretched out over several days worth of lunch for myself at work.

 

This apple-cheddar stuffed chicken didn’t photograph so beautifully, but HOOBOY was it yummy.  This is another home run from Iowa Girl Eats – her recipes are amazing and if you don’t follow her on Pinterest, I’m sorry for your loss.

These gluten-free, dairy-free muffins were a great find on Pinterest!  Christina of course hates them, but I think they are mighty tasty.
