Lately my eats have been less than healthy but more than delicious.
Exhibit A: Voodoo Dog
Saurkraut, Swiss, Mustard; Mac and Cheese; Sour Cream and Guacamole (all dogs were wrapped in bacon)
No, I did not eat all of them, but the one I did eat (loaded with sour cream and guac and wrapped in bacon) was more than enough to make me feel a little diner’s remorse. Also, there were at least a pound of vinegar fries consumed. For the record, it was delicious and I will return.
Exhibit B: Sheppard’s Pie Wrap with a side of yucca fries from Street Chefs and The Turnover Cafe food trucks, respectively.
This wrap is seriously one of the best things I have ever ordered from a food truck. I enjoyed every bite as I sat on the ground in my sweaty post workout clothes. And if you have never had fried yucca you are
not from Miami really missing out.
Exhibit C: Bacon Cheddar Waffles
I was craving breakfast for dinner and Matt wasn’t so I pulled out the wild card that always works: a new idea involving bacon. And Bacon Cheddar waffles were born (we just added shredded cheddar and cooked bacon pieces to Bisquick batter). The only thing these were missing was fried chicken. Also, I have apparently lost all self control.
And let’s not forget Exhibit D:
I followed this truck all the way to work on Thursday and by lunch time I found myself at the vending machine. It was a shameful walk back to my desk.
Obviously I can’t keep eating like this if I want to be able to fit into my wedding dress/live past the age of 30. This weekend I have been trying to clean it up a little….
Friday night we went to a friends house and I brought this simple Feta Tomato Bruschetta Dip:
A few plum tomatoes, crumbled feta, chopped fresh basil, minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix together and zap for a minute or two to start to melt the feta and serve with pita chips, bread, veggies, whatev (we put the leftovers in yesterday’s quiche and it was sooooo good). Easy peasy and delicious.
Saturday I made hummus and veggie stuffed mushrooms:
I have been wanting to make these ever since I saw them on Clean Eating Veggie Girl a few weeks ago so I took what I had in my kitchen and whipped up a similar dish. Mine included: red onion, garlic, green pepper, baby bella mushrooms, hummus, and feta. Matt made a few of his own stuffed mushrooms with chorizo and said that my veggie ones were even tastier. And then a pig flew across the room. Ladies and gents, this dish is a winner.
I also decided to actually plan out some meals for the week so that I am less likely to end up at the food trucks. Here are a few of the meals I have Pinned that will be making their way onto my plate this week:
Crockpot Quinoa and Vegetables
Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup
Chickpea Sweet Potato Burger with Dilly Cucumbers
What is your go-to healthy dinner?
Do you plan your weekly meals?
Not usually but I always say that I will.
