It is the last What I Ate Wednesday of September. Next time I see ya all, it'll be October - my favorite month. I love it because we celebrate two awesome holidays that month: Halloween and my birthday!! ;D
Buuuut, I guess I should calm down since we're still a week away. However, consider this your fair warning: I might be a bit excitable in the coming weeks! Haha.
Thanks as always go out to Jenn for hosting this food porn party. And many thanks to everyone who posts their yummy meals because I've gotten some fantastic ideas through you all.
Breakfast probably looks familiar from the past couple of WIAWs. I'm still obsessively eating 4 egg whites, half an avocado, and a piece of fruit...with water and green tea. Hey, there could be worse obsessions to have. This is a winning combo of protein, healthy fat, and fresh fruit that fills me right up after my Crossfit classes.
We've been feeling the fall chill around here lately so a hot lunch is a nice treat. (And so is busting out away from my usual salad.) I did enjoy a small side salad alongside a homemade paleo turkey sausage patty and sweet potato wedges. The sausage is pretty good but not perfect yet. I'll be sure to share the recipe once I get it down!
My babe and I picked approximately 392 pounds of apples over the weekend so a batch of homemade applesauce was a total must. I'm sure all of you already make/know how to make applesauce but I shared the simple directions in this post for anyone interested.
Grilled balsamic chicken and spaghetti squash with pesto rounded out my day's eats. I made this pesto using cilantro and walnuts, rather than basil and pine nuts. Pretty decent though it definitely would've benefited from some grated Romano but...that's not very paleo, is it? ;)
