The past couple weeks I really have not been home very much. Between post-Thanksgiving travel, my boo traveling for work, and spending time at the hospital with my step-dad - I haven't wanted to go to the grocery store, buy a bunch produce and then have it all die before I can use it.
So for meals, I have been trying very hard to utilize what I already have in the house (which is why you saw me eat coconut chips for lunch yesterday. Sad.). It is also helping me save money, because all my money typically goes towards food.
Last night's dinner was Trader Joe's frozen turkey burgers (no buns) with balsamic caramelized onions along with some frozen broccoli steamed in the microwave with lemon and romano cheese. Pretty dang good.
Yesterday I used the last of the eggs, which by now, you have realized is my go to brekky of choice. Instead of going to the store like a normal human, I chose the alternative, find a way to make what I had in the house work. And I'm so glad I did!
Thus today's recipe inspiration emerged. I had a whole tub of frozen peaches from last summer. I had frozen them at their peak ripeness (bought too many, couldn't eat them all!!) so they have a perfect flavor! I have heaps of chia seeds (my preferred add on for my omega 3s!). I still had some almond milk. I still had protein powder.
I made Peach Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding and it was perfect. I devoured it. My husband loved it. Even though it is cold outside, it was like a fresh taste of summer coming to warm me up!
See the recipe below. You are over the hump babes! Happy Thursday! xx
overnight PEACH vanilla chia pudding (serves 1)
- 1/2 cup peaches
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup vanilla plant based protein powder
Combine ingredients as listed in container of your choice. Stir the protein to eliminate any powder bubbles. Let sit overnight. Mix in the morning. Enjoy!
NOTE: I know not everyone has access to perfect peaches right now, but you can find frozen peaches at the store- just make sure there aren't any syrups added!
