COOKING EXTRAVAGANZA Part 2

Well it was a fast and furious Sunday evening but Karen and I accomplished it all! Unfortunately it was SO FAST AND FURIOUS I forgot to take many pictures but so goes! We did mostly stick to the plan and I’m really happy we got so much done!

We tried the spinach/fat free feta breakfast muffins and they are quite tasty. It was a good substitute and I plugged in the new information in myfitnesspal and it actually is fewer calories with the same protein as the broccoli/cheddar so… that’s something! This is one of those I forgot to document last night but here is breakfast today:

IMG_4171We thought about adding an additional breakfast but I really couldn’t think of what to make. Didn’t want the same spinach pie two days in a row and wasn’t sure what else would be super high protein that isn’t very similar to the egg muffins. So we just kept it there for now. Might dabble in overnight oats again. Stay tuned. For lunches we made a pan of Turkey Meatloaf. We actually made two pans of the meatloaf (one for lunches and one for dinner for last night and it was delicious). Check out all that protein:

IMG_4167For another lunch option we made Asian Turkey Meatballs with Zoodles and a sesame sauce. I forgot to take a picture of them together but here are the parts:

I’ll let you know how they ended up. I didn’t use cilantro because I don’t love it (plus it’s a lot of chopping work). We also didn’t cook the zoodles and left them raw because I figured they’d cook better in the microwave when reheating all of this. Also the sesame sauce called for water which I didn’t add because the zoodles will make some water in the dish anyway and I didn’t want it too liquidy. Also a reminder I LOVE my Paderno spiralizer.

After all that cooking we were a little wiped out but felt like a dessert option would be good so we made these Skinnytaste Breakfast Cookies! They are REALLY small (I did manage to get 18 cookies out of it but they are suuuper teeny. Not sure if you can tell from this picture. But two cookies are less than 100 calories and I think just one cookie will satisfy my chocolate craving. They came together in like … 20 minutes start to finish and are quite tasty. Not high in protein but they’re small enough to not worry about it.

IMG_4170For reference this is only half of my baking tray.

So all in all a very productive evening. I’m excited about eating all the food. This week I have a few more evenings out so I’m getting prepared to deal with that (researching Snatched-Friendly restaurants). If you have any suggestions for restaurants — especially those that publish their full nutrition information online — have at me! Happy Monday everyone!
