What I Ate Wednesday #90: Homemades

There have been a lot of delicious things going down in the kitchen lately. Protein bites, more nut butter, and some bread [that needs a little work] to name a few. I also have a recipe for a new chia pudding for you today; it was the perfect snack. You know, between all of the almond butter I had.

Pre-Workout
Apple pie protein bite. It’s my latest bite creation and I will definitely be sharing the recipe soon!

Breakfast
Bobs Red Mill Scottish Oats
I’m back on the oatmeal train! I used up the rest of my coconut cashew butter with this batch of oats but while they were cooking, I also whipped up my first batch of almond butter. It came out pretty darn perfectly!

Morning Snack
Homemade Nut Butter
This is pretty how it goes down after every new batch of nut butter. I wouldn’t want a drop to go to waste so the Vitamix comes to the computer with me as I figure out how to get every last bit out of there. Without cutting my fingers πŸ˜‰

Lunch
Kabocha Tuna Almond Butter Sriracha
I also have a problem when I make a new nut butter that I need to eat it multiple times that first day. Actually, it’s not a problem at all. This kabocha and tuna with almond sriracha sauce was perfect.

Afternoon Snack
Chocolate Almond Chia Pudding Love Grown Foods Apple Walnut Granola
Chocolate almond chia pudding. It finally occurred to me that while I’m not a fan of the texture of chia pudding, using milled chia might be more favorable. Success!

Ingredients
– 2 tbsp milled chia seed
– 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
– 1 tbsp almond butter
– 1 tbsp cocoa powder
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 7 drops liquid stevia

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well until everything is fully incorporated. Let set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Top with your favorite fruit, granola, or more nut butter! I used Love Grown Foods Apple Walnut Delight.

We also had some baking adventures yesterday. We’re still learning and this was our second roll of the night. It definitely turned out better than the first but still very dense.
White Whole Wheat Roll

White Whole Wheat Roll Cut
Kierston is my bread inspiration so I might be calling on her soon for tips!

Dinner
Honey Ginger Chicken Veggie Stir Fry Pinch of Yum
I adjusted Lindsay’s honey ginger tofu stir fry to make it with chicken instead since I have a non-tofu eater over here. I had a couple leftover cauliflower rolls so I crumbled one up in the bottom of the bowl and used it as rice. It came out great and we have lots of leftovers. Always a good thing!

Dessert
Apple Almond Butter

I told you. Multiple times a day. I couldn’t not have more almond butter with my apple!

Food for Thought

Are you a fan of chia pudding?

  1. Yum yum yum! A great day of homemade eats….they taste so good when you know exactly what is in them, and put some effort in to make them! I am not sure how I feel about chia pudding, sometimes it makes me feel kind of nauseous with the texture, but other times I love it! I am the same way as you with my nut butter though, scrape every last drop….and try not to put most of it in my mouth πŸ˜›

    • I was just thinking earlier that it’s nice to make simple recipes and know what’s in them. No need for the extras! And I completely agree with you on chia pudding which is why I really like using the milled chia! It doesn’t have that weird texture πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve started getting into the nut butter multiple times a day too – I always have it in the morn w/my banana, but lately have been dipping into it between my plain Greek yogurt/fruit snack and each gym session. Sometimes I find I need a little something just before the gym so some of my PB is the perfect fix. Um, that tofu stir fry thing looks fab.

  3. Sooo I should not have read this as I am sitting in the office out of snacks. I am totally craving oatmeal right now and I haven’t had oatmeal in months! So. Weird. I cannot get on the chia pudding train – I’ve tried it many times and just not in love. Almond butter on the other hand… GIMME! Now I need to go get a snack

    • Gah! I don’t know what to do without snacks haha. I’ve seen cauliflower “oatmeal” but haven’t give that a try yet.. maybe soon? Hope you found a good snack πŸ˜‰
