WIAW: Better Mood, Better Food

Happy What I Ate Wednesday friends!

This week, I’m a lot more upbeat about my meals.  I’m over the angry part of food allergies, and now I’ve come to the acceptance part.

I’ve been getting excited about being in the kitchen again!

Breakfast:

 

2013 09 07 10 27 59 1

Green Smoothie with Blueberry Banana Bread

Picture recycled from Saturday… I forgot yesterday morning!

Lunch: 

2013 09 17 12 05 01

Leftovers- roasted sweet potato with apples, lentils, and zucchini with a balsamic vinegar, mustard, and cinnamon dressing.  So good!

Snack: 

2013 09 03 18 08 14

I snacked on grapes after work while I made dinner.

Dinner:

2013 09 17 19 08 40

Millet and Butternut Squash Salad with chickpeas and roasted brussels.

I need to remake that salad and repost it for you all.  The recipe needs updated and I originally posted it when only my parents and Luvy read my blog.  ;)

Snack:

More Blueberry Banana Bread

Seriously, I could eat the entire loaf of this stuff.  It is best warmed with honey, cinnamon, and a banana sliced on top!

Meals this week have actually been really good and satisfying.  Who would have thought that I would be doing so well with out eggs or nuts/ nut butter?!??  ;)

Linz sent me some new to me websites and blogs with allergy friendly recipes, so I’m looking forward to trying some new things.

What is something great you ate lately?

What is your favorite way to eat butternut squash?

    Glad to hear that you’re feeling a little better about the dietary changes :) I know allergies are a pain in the butt, but as long as you focus on the good food that you CAN eat, you don’t feel so deprived. And it makes you get a lot more creative in the kitchen too!

    YUMMMMM you know what is crazy, when I first figured out my allergies I had 0 issues making food that I wanted. Lately however I’m not hungry at all and that has made it really hard to get in the kitchen, so I’ve been letting foods slip in and I know that’s not helping!

    I’ve been eating a lot of kabocha squash lately and it tastes oh so good! I cannot get enough of it. I haven’t cooked with millet yet, but your dinner looks delicious. I love the “non-healthy” version of butternut squash. ;)

    I’m happy to hear that you’re feeling better about your change of diet. I’m sure it’ll get easier as you figure out what foods to eat and start making new recipes. Everything you’re eating so far certainly looks delicious!
