Weekend Roundup 5

What does a dietitian eat?  Healthy foods all the time?  NO!  Organic foods daily?  NO!  Super small portions?  Nope!  Dietitians are just like you!  We have food days that are super healthy (fruits and veggies at every meal, lean proteins, alcohol free and no sweets!) and we have days that are not as healthy (think chocolate, beer and nachos).  Check out my weekly weekend roundup posts so you can see what my weekend eats are all about!
Breakfast: 1 cup of my homemade dark chocolate coffee quinoa and 1 cup of sliced strawberries.  I can’t wait to share this recipe with you all on the blog!  This quinoa cereal is so delicious and provides me with a great mix of carbs, healthy fats and protein to start your morning off right!
Lunch:  Another turkey sandie!  ½ a mashed avocado with some garlic and onion powder, sliced red onions, 3 oz of turkey and 2 slices of multigrain bread.
Snack:  We got a bunch of bananas at the beginning of the week and they were starting to go bad, so I grabbed one for a quick mid-day snack.  Snack was a banana with 1 tbsp of sunflower seed butter!  Easy and delicious!
Dinner:  Bernie has still been in some pain, so we did Friday Funday in Jersey City instead this week.  We went to Talde, and as always, it was amazing!  It’s more of a tapas type place where you split everything.  We split their everything roti bread, the pretzel pork and chive dumplings and beef short rib kare kare.  We loved it!

Breakfast: Breakfast was a quarter of a whole wheat everything bagel and 1 egg with some cheddar cheese.  I wanted something small and quick before my morning run because I woke up hungry.  After breakfast, I did a 5 mile run on the boardwalk because the weather was amazing.  Then Bernie and I got a 24 hour day pass for CitiBike and took a ride to our friend’s place to see their new baby and hang out.
Snack: Dark Chocolate Health Warrior Chia Bar

Dinner:  We went out to dinner at GP’s Restaurant with a few friends on Saturday night and it was amazing!  We split the meatballs, roasted brussel sprouts and burrata.  They were all amazing.  I ordered chicken parmesan, one of my favorite italian meals and had a Blue Moon.

Breakfast: We woke up early Sunday to get an hour of biking in.  Before we went out, I ate a Chocolate Peanut Butter Health Warrior Chia Bar.  We did our biking then I met my friend for a four mile run in the park.  After the run I had Purely Elizabeth Pumpkin Fig and Ancient Grain Granola and Puffs Cereal with skim milk.

Lunch:  We had a Christening on Sunday, so lunch was at the party after mass.  I had a half of a turkey, avocado, bacon sandwich and half of a sautéed veggies with mozzarella sandwich.  I also had a bit of broccoli salad, cole slaw and potato salad.
Snack: A small slice of cake.
Dinner:  For dinner we met Bernie’s mom and step dad for sushi.  I had a spicy tuna roll and a specialty roll with shrimp and avocado!  I’m sad I forgot to take pictures of these because the specialty role looked so beautiful with the avocado slices on top!
There you have it!  A weekend full of dietitian’s eats!
