Eats Lately 2

It’s been a month since I’ve shared my eats lately. I’m finally getting interested in trying new recipes again. Yay! For awhile nothing sounded good. I ate but nothing was OMG! This is good! 

Here’s some of my favorite breakfasts, snacks and dinners. I didn’t include any lunches since they’re usually leftovers from the night before.


Breakfast Eats Lately June - happyfitmama.com

  • Cocoa Almond Butter Yogurt Smoothie Bowl with Nutty Nuggets – my new fav!
  • Cascadian Farms Multi-grain Squares with almond milk and fresh strawberries and blueberries. I can’t get enough berries right now!
  • Homemade apricot granola bars. So filling and delicious! This was the first time I combined dried apricots and coconut. Mmmm!
  • Blueberry Banana Pancakes – experimenting with a vegan option.
  • Chocolate Zucchini Bread Pancakes with fresh strawberries and banana. OMG! Good!
  • Cell-nique Smoothies
  • Father’s Day breakfast – homemade waffles, plain yogurt, fresh berries, banana and Chia seeds
  • Green smoothie bowl. Frozen kale makes the best thick smoothies.
  • Eggs! This has been my breakfast, lunch or dinner at least once or more times a week. I can’t get enough of a runny egg and salsa.

Random snacks and drinks

Snacks Eats Latey - happyfitmama.com

  • I’ve been brewing a big pitcher of Tazo green or passion tea with a splash of lemonade.
  • Pink lady apples with almond butter
  • Snack plate of cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, spicy hummus and watermelon
  • Green PB dip and apples
  • Love Edible Arrangements! Makes me smile to see fruit made into flowers!
  • Chocolate Banana Soft Serve with peanuts – Super easy when you want ice cream but don’t have any in the house. Plus, much better for you nutrition wise!
  • Picky Bars! How come no one told me how freakin’ awesome these are?


Dinner Eats Lately June - happyfitmama.com

  •  Spinach Burger with roasted sweet potato rounds. REALLY good recipe that a friend shared with me that I will post soon. I’m just tweaking it a tad first.
  • My once every two years “I really want a beef burger” meal. I usually don’t eat red meat but a craving for a grilled burger comes on every so often. It hit the spot so I’m good for another couple of years I guess. :)
  • Pumpkin Kale Bean Quesadilla
  • Green salad with everything but the kitchen sink (my favorite kind).
  • Fish Tacos, corn on the cob and steamed broccoli
  • Father’s day @Flatbread Company – Sweet potato puree, goat cheese, mushrooms, carmelized onions with balsamic reduction – YUM!
  • Black Bean Quinoa Burger fail! They didn’t hold together at all so I turned it into a salad topping. Still delicious!
  • Sweet potato bean bowl – another kitchen sink creation.
  • Ron’s homemade veggie pizza and greens.
  • Roasted salmon and asparagus.
  • Strawberry spinach salad with avocado and feta
  • Grilled chicken, salad and roasted potato wedges
  • Roasted Corn Black Bean Soup
  • Chicken Taco Salad
  • Spaghetti squash pad thai
  • Mexican pizza

Eats Lately

Hey everyone!

So it’s been weeks since I’ve shared some of my eats lately. Truthfully, April was a weird month of eating. My tummy wasn’t feeling the greatest for some reason so I was stuck to eating really bland food on a lot of days. But things seem back to normal now. I’ve haven’t taken a whole lot of pictures of my food either for that reason. Brown and bland aren’t that photogenic. :) But here are a few things that I’ve been enjoying.

Breakfasts and Snacks

Eats May 8 breakfast and snacks- happyfitmama.com

  1. One of the best green smoothie bowls I’ve made in a long time – I think I threw everything but the kitchen sink in it. Too bad I only got to enjoy 1/4 of it since my little munchkins devoured the rest.
  2. CORE Defender Bars – Still loving these pre long run. They keep me satisfied with no issues.
  3. Homemade granola – My kids love granola so rather than shell out mega $$ for the organic variety, I make my own. Plus, I know exactly what’s in it!
  4. OIAJ – love!
  5. Blueberry Muffin for one – I had an intense craving for blueberry muffins for one week. This baby hit the spot!
  6. Sambazon Energy Smoothie – This surprised me and was actually really good! Stay tuned for a giveaway next week.
  7. Steven’s Homemade Energy Bars – I modified Lisa’s (and Steven’s) a little to abide to my #sugardetox this week. So good!
  8. Chocolate Zucchini Bread

  3. Grilled Veggies for make your own quesadilla
  4. Bean enchilada’s with avocado sauce
  5. Roasted salmon and asparagus
  6. Pasta Primavera + Vegan Pesto
  7. Fish tacos
  8. Fish tacos at our favorite restaurant (I kind of really like fish tacos!).
  9. Thai Peanut Salad with Salmon
  10. Cauliflower Buffalo Wings – so spicy but addicting!
  11. Steamed veggies, baked chicken and pasta (Weird craving for chicken – can’t remember the last time I had it).
  12. Thai Quinoa Salad

It’s pretty obvious that we’ve been on a Mexican and Thai kick lately. They are my favorite so it’s sometimes hard to think of anything else that sounds good.

Eats From the Week 3

My post from yesterday couldn’t have come at a better time. I needed a reminder of what makes me happy after we got seriously dumped on. WTF – 10 + inches of snow in mid March is just plain cruel. And for that I give you a scowl.

Since it was snowing, I got the urge to bake and restock our snack supply. I wanted to make some of my usual chocolate balls but we were running low on dates. I improvised and came up with a really easy and delicious combo. So easy that it almost seems silly to put it into a recipe format!

Coconut Apricot Bites 1 - happyfitmama.com

Coconut Apricot Bites
  • ½ Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • ½ Cup Unsulfured Dried Apricots
  • ½ Cup Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 1 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Blend till evenly combined.
  3. Roll bites into balls.
  4. Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Four ingredients for one yummy snack! More additions could be added too. Almonds, walnuts and protein powder would all be delicious. It’s funny but I really don’t like the taste of coconut but it seems to be growing on me the more I eat it.

It’s time for a recap of some of my favorite eats from the week. Or better yet, the past few weeks. It’s been three weeks since the last Eats from the Week post. I’ve been kind of in a food rut lately. Nothing sounds really, really good to me so I’ve been making a lot of the usual standbys.
