Sunday’s Rest Day Meals

I think that most of my WIAW posts document my Sunday/rest day meals. Not sure why this is, but maybe because it’s a new week and I have just gone food shopping/created my meal plan plus have a little extra time to think about taking pictures of my food because I’m not running? Who knows, but for some reason I felt the need to document my food on Sunday so here it is! Nothing too special, but better than many other Sundays which consist of lots of snacks rather than full meals just because I don’t feel like cooking breakfast or lunch.

For breakfast I made these chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes. It was a nice change from our usually egg/bacon/veggie combo! I balanced it out with some green juice and blueberries.

We ate breakfast early, so I was ready for a snack at 10am. I made a smoothie with whatever I could find in the fridge/freezer. I know it involved frozen fruit, kale, juice, and almond butter. Nothing special, but I probably wouldn’t make this again. I had it with a chocolate chip muffin

Lunch was leftovers from last night’s dinner. We went to Birotecca, which is the best pizza place we have found in Baltimore. I also had some minestrone soup that I had gotten for lunch the day before.

I also drank a few cups of tea throughout the day. Just a few more days until I can drink coffee again!

I tried a new recipe for dinner: Skinny Chicken Marsala. This was served with brown rice and broccoli.

We finished off the night with a few Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies. This was my first time making these cookies and they did not disappoint!

For those who participate in WIAW, what is the most common day for you to document your food?

Do you prefer sweet or savory breakfasts?

Have you baked anything good lately?

  1. The mushrooms and that marsala sauce look awesome! I definitely prefer sweet to savory breakfasts, but moreso a savory lunch! I think I usually document my eats from a Monday (usually when I have the most groceries) or a Friday/weekend day because I think it’s important to show that my weekend eats (and drinks) are often quite different!

  2. I’d die without coffee. You’re so strong! Ha ha. Okay so I’m not sure if Starbucks down there has them but they brought in these toffeedoodle cookies that are absolutely INSANELY good. So I tried to replicate them, and I did a decent job! Not as good as the Starbucks ones though. If you guys have them, you should try one. YUM.

  3. I actually tend to never do WIAWs on my weekend… probably because I basally go in to “zero commitments” mode and am far too lazy to think about anything other than just sitting down and eating. Although most of my weekend meals are far more “esthetic,” so perhaps I should give it a go.
    I loved your comment about the smoothie – sometimes food is just fuel and that’s about as far as it goes. Trial and error.
