This past weekend I went to the Leucadia Farmers’ Market and actually did some of my weekly grocery shopping there (rather than only buying a poke bowl for breakfast/lunch to eat on the spot). My body was craving fresh greens and produce so I stocked up on Morning Star Ranch (aka “Yellow Deli”) green juice, energizing green bar, butter leaf and summer crisp lettuce, strawberries and fresh pesto. I also stopped by Whole Foods to pick up a few extra ingredients to create a lunch: crimini mushrooms, kumato tomatoes, yellow squash, and avocado.
Overnight Oat Parfaits are still going strong this week. I’m completely satiated afterwards and I like that the overnight oats, for me, take the place of granola.
Here’s this week’s menu:
Breakfast – Overnight Oat Parfait
Lunch – Pesto Salad Bowl
Snack – Watermelon
Snack 2 – Green Juice + 1 tsp. Spirulina
Dinner – TBD
And the only new recipe for the week…
