Monday’s Meals and New Recipes

Over the weekend I tried out a few new recipes. Ok, so it was only two (and both were from Michele) but I also made an older recipe for the first time in a while. Other than that my food on Monday wasn’t anything too exciting. As usual I ate about 3 breakfasts and 4 snacks:)
Pre-run was a quick cup of coffee and a banana. Most days I haven’t been eating before I run in the morning but if I feel like I need something I’ve found I can eat a banana immediately before I run and I have no issues.
Post run (while getting ready for work) was a smoothie. I actually made this on Sunday to save some time on Monday morning: frozen bananas/berries/spinach, protein powder, almond butter, ginger, and OJ.
The first new recipe I made over the weekend was Michele’s Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bread. You guys know I’m not big on pumpkin, but I had to give this recipe a try and I’m so glad I did.
Late in the morning I ate a gala apple when I got hungry and it was too early for lunch.
Lunch was leftovers from Sunday’s dinner: Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing with chicken.
Afternoon snack #1 was a green anjou pear.
Afternoon snack #2 was a peanut butter cookie LARABAR.
Dinner was burgers with sweet potato fries and mixed veggies. Usually we have this meal later in the week but it was a nice change to eat it on a Monday.
The second recipe I tried this weekend was these Ultimate Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Rob gave these two thumbs up and commented that they made the house smell really good. I think that the fact that he even noticed says a lot.
Do you tend to eat the same meals on the same days of the week? (We usually save easier meals like burgers and fajitas for Thursday when we don’t have the energy to try anything crazy!)
Do you eat multiple breakfasts and/or snacks each day?
Do you ever bake just to make your house smell good?
