What I'm Making and Eating

I enjoyed reading your responses to the running- weight maintenance post… it’s something we don’t talk about very often, but obviously, lots of women experience it!

For What I Ate Wednesday, I’m sharing some recent eats and projects.

This arrived yesterday…

Kombucha making supplies

I won a gift card to KombuchaKamp from Lindsay, and I’m so excited to finally have the push to make my own kombucha! I started my first batch yesterday… I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.

As I was reading up on Kombucha making, I discovered it’s good for more than a happy gut, probiotics and another yummy fermented food.  It also has a profound impact on stress, calms asthma, IBS, eczema and is even beneficial for athletes to reduce inflammation and improve energy.  Who knew?

I also have a second fermentation experiment going on.  A friend gave me sourdough starter so now I have to keep it alive.  It’s another project I’ve been wanting to take on, so I hope I can remember to keep after it.

We’re halfway through the spring reset.  I cleaned up my diet a lot and have felt better cutting back on processed foods and dairy.  I haven’t been perfect- occasionally this baby asks for non-reset foods and I’m giving myself the okay to go with it.  But here are some of my better choices this past week:

Breakfast:

Strawberry Protein Pancakes

Strawberry Protein Pancakes (used this recipe but subbed fresh strawberries)

Chia oatsOvernight Chia Oats

Lunch:

Mexican quinoaLeftover Mexican Quinoa with an egg

Quinoa saladLeftover quinoa with Trader Joe’s lentils, shredded carrots, tomato and avocado over greens for an easy salad

Dinner:

Tofu stir fryTofu Broccoli Stir Fry with Hard boiled eggs and Sprouts

Black bean mango tacosSweet Potato Black Bean Tacos

I should clarify that my appetite has been huge lately and the lunch and dinner photos are often serving one of at least 2, sometimes 3! :) This baby is growing.

Plus lots of smoothies, nuts and nut butter, fruit, guacamole with veggies, stove popped popcorn, and whatever else I can find for snacks.

Have you ever made kombucha or sourdough? Any tips for me?

What’s your current favorite snack?
