Daily Eats [2016]

I was asked to post a bit on my daily eats.

For the most part, breakfast and snacks stay consistent. Since I have been on the go for most mornings and don’t have a microwave on hand (I had cold oats), I’ve been doing cereal (Fiber One Honey Cluster, Total Whole Grain, Special K) adding a little fruit/ nuts/ seeds mixture plus some fat-free milk. Some days I do soy. This plus my morning coffee keep me going for a few hours. I usually munch on more fruit, a string cheese or a Kind Bar for a snack. The bars come in if I have a long day of teaching. Lunches I keep it to sandwiches or Boca veggie burgers. My favorite sandwich combo is turkey, Swiss, cucumber, tomatoes and spinach on wheat bread. As a side I will have pretzels, baked Lays or Late July tortilla chips. They are delish.If I am home for my “mid-afternoon” snack, I will have a smoothie (protein powder, some fruit and maybe almond/ soy milk). My on the go version is some Greek yogurt. Noms!Dinners vary and sometimes look the same as lunch. Pat and I eat dinner about 3-4 nights together depending on our schedule. I love this chili recipe from Vegetarian Times! I use ground turkey to make it non-vegan and nix some of the spiciness.When I’m solo, I will do either a sandwich/ veggie burger or any leftovers that I froze from previous dinners. This one below is a combo of a previous dinner and veggie burger.After dinner, I’ll sometimes munch on a cookie or a little dark chocolate. All things in moderation right?  😀

Question: What are some of your daily go-to’s?
