It’s not very colorful in the bowl, but ridiculously delicious in my stomach! 37 degrees in Chicago this morning warrants a warm breakfast. Hot oatmeal (made with @califiafarms toasted coconut almondmilk) swirled with @rxbar maple almond butter. Reminds me of those maple brown sugar instant oatmeal packets from when I was a kid, ONLY BETTER!
Eating at my desk after a walk around the pond during my lunch break (taking full advantage of any sunny, warm days to get outside while I still can. I know the days are numbered!) @jays_bakingmecrazy stuffed pepper soup (paleo and Whole30 compliant!) and a 1/2 sandwich made on organic sourdough bread from @wholefoodschi, @applegate roasted turkey breast slices, @andrewandeverett Muenster cheese and a little @veggiesmadeeasy green leaf lettuce. I was craving a sandwich like nothing else and a combo of soup and 1/2 sandwich hit the spot!

Humid warmup in Chicago after a weekend of rain calls for a mason jar salad for lunch. From top to bottom: @organicgirl baby spring mix, @thenewprimal classic marinaded chicken breast tenders, chopped broccoli and cauliflower, @lovebeets organic roasted beets, and @tessemaes everything bagel ranch dressing. My go-to salad combo (and the one I always make from a salad bar) and it’s 🔥 today!

Rainy mood AF this morning. Thankful for meal prep and the foresight to leave a batch of pancakes for Friday (usually scarfed down much earlier in the week). Pumpkin Flax @kodiakcakes (now back in stores for the season! Be like me and stock up now for the whole year until next season!), vanilla @siggisdairy mixed with pumpkin pie spice, and a heavy drizzle of honey cinnamon peanut butter from @rxbar.
This is EVERYTHING! Roasted Japanese sweet potatoes dipped in @tessemaes everything bagel ranch dressing. Um, sign me up! 🙋🏻♀️ Only available online, but don’t let that stop you, buy a 4(or more)-pack!
Grabbed the new harvest salad from @farmersfridge for lunch today. Mixed greens, honeycrisp apples, roasted sweet potatoes, couscous with dried cranberries and toasted pecans, and goat cheese, dressed with their housemade balsamic vinaigrette. (And clearly couldn’t resist the dark chocolate trail mix again either!) Best eaten outside with the work crew. 🥗+☀️=❤️

Digging into this beaut for breakfast this morning. Cinnamon raisin @rachelsovernightoats (made with @califiafarms toasted coconut almondmilk), vanilla & cinnamon @siggisdairy, @rxbar honey cinnamon peanut butter, topped off with a banana. How much cinnamon is too much cinnamon? Asking for a friend. 🤷🏻♀️
Made the time for a hot breakfast this morning! Scrambled eggs with @primalkitchenfoods ketchup and a @traderjoes toasted British muffin with @miyokos_kitchen vegan cream cheese, smashed avocado, @mightyvine tomatoes and everything but the bagel seasoning. My late-morning self will thank me for this later, for sure!
He aced his math test. That's good enough for me! #keepittasty 😁

Errands before work meant breakfast to-go today. Thankfully I prepped overnight oats this weekend! Pumpkin spice @rachelsovernightoats (with @califiafarms toasted coconut almondmilk), pumpkin spice @siggisdairy and @rxbar’s new maple almond butter. Best combo ever!
My favorite version of @cleaneatsbytay’s baked oatmeal yet! Cinnamon apple baked oatmeal — it’s the very definition of fall in a bowl! So good with a dollop of vanilla @siggisdairy and a drizzle of local honey.
Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore from @tastythin coming in HOT! Other than starting off on the wrong foot (rotten red pepper from @traderjoes means only 1 green pepper and 0 red peppers made it into the pot) this was SO freaking easy, SO freaking fast to make, and SO freaking delicious! I served it over roasted spaghetti squash noodles and packed it up for lunches this week. Add this to your meal prep next weekend and you won’t be sorry! 🍝
Birthday breakfast with my children. Idc if its dinner time, I just woke up so its breakfast. Happy birthday to me! 😁 #923 #keepittasty

Lunch out yesterday. @waynephillips wanted to check out the new @mcdonalds downtown (that replaced the rock ‘n roll one), and I snagged a harvest bowl to-go from @sweetgreen. Probably not totally on the up-and-up (bringing my own lunch to another restaurant), but it worked for us yesterday!
