I’m in the middle of a busy week, though I swear every week feels pretty darn busy lately. I’ve got a lot going on on the back end of things – chiropractor appointments, writing, planning, researching, training, and working at the coffee shop.
But since it’s Wednesday, I have to share some fun and delicious eats with you. As a reminder, this is not all I eat in a single day as there are snacks un-pictured.
Breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter & banana with a side of coffee with almond milk
Snack: Chocolate covered strawberry protein smoothie
Lunch: 0% Plain Chobani with blackberries, cereal + granola and a sprinkle of raisins (I promise there’s greek yogurt under there). 😉
Dinner: Loaded sweet potato with peanut butter, cinnamon and Greek yogurt
And as for that smoothie…seriously delicious!

What delicious eats have you had this week?
I make a chocolate-covered strawberry protein shake, too! How cool 🙂 I use chocolate protein powder instead of cocoa in mine, though. But now I’m intrigued to see how this one would taste.
It tastes delicious! I don’t have any chocolate protein powder so I have to find my own way of making it work! 😉
I want that smoothie!!!! yum!
O yum! You had me at “chocolate”, then again at “covered” and then at “strawberry”. 😉
Will be making this smoothie tonight for dessert after dinner =)
Great idea for a smoothie! I get stuck in the same rut (peanut butter cup green monster) it does the trick though 🙂
That breakfast looks so good… PB & Banana for the win any day! 🙂
thats such a good combo! reminds me of chocolate cover strawberries.
That was exactly the point! 🙂
Mmmmm….smoothies. 🙂 Throw in a handful of spinach to that mix and I’m sold!
That was actually in the initial plan but the spinach was out! 🙁
I like the looks of that coffee shop….
My roommate who just moved out left behind a rogue English muffin, and even though my dad has one almost every morning, so I technically have them available any time I go home to visit, I don’t think I had had one in at least a year or two. But um, how did I ever forget how delicious they are??? Nooks and crannies for the win.
[And I’m pretty sure most people don’t believe there are oats and/or yogurt under any of the photos I instagram. Is it our fault the toppings are just so much fun?]
I highly recommend the Trader Joe’s whole wheat cinnamon raisin english muffins! SOOOO good!
oh hey, guess what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow? Except raw cacao nibs instead of cocoa b/c i don’t have cocoa (just ran out). 🙂 thanks for sharing this, katie!
can you make me this too?
Ohh! What’d you think?!
What a fun win! 🙂 The smoothie recipe look good. Can you really taste the chocolate and fruit? I feel like the fruit might over power it–but if it works, it sounds awesome!
Yes! It tasted like a delicious strawberry chocolate goodness!
