WIAW Vacation Prep
This week I am preparing my house, suitcase and mind for an exciting family vacation. I don’t want food to spoil, so I am trying to use up everything that I have on hand. Although I did need a few groceries, it was hard not to buy things at the grocery store. There were some great deals going on.
This month for What I Ate Wednesday the focus is Summer Staples. She’s so creative. Thank you Jenn for another great week. I still can’t believe it’s already August!
Overnight Oats. Fast, simple, fun!
Apple and Genetix Pro Sculpt
Premier Protein sent me a few protein packed goodies a few weeks ago. I’ve tried the protein bars which are delicious! The chocolate peanut butter tastes identical to a snicker bar! So good! But today I finally tried the protein shake. The stats are great. 30g of protein, 3g of fat, and only 1 gram of sugar. If you see this brand anywhere, I recommend you pick it up. This shake helped tide me over until it was lunch time. Refreshing and simple for the summer heat when you don’t want to prepare anything.
A great big salad with brussels sprouts, squash, asparagus, tomatoes and lemon juice. I was really craving some greens. This happens a lot.
My Mom helped my sister make some Baklava. Oh yeah. It was great. I loved that it wasn’t as drenched with syrup as it is traditionally prepared.. It’s been way too long since I’ve had this. I don’t have to worry about this staying in my house too long. My husband will eat it all up. Thank goodness.
Another summer snack staple for me is frozen yogurt. Mine are not usually that exciting. I love the yogurt more than the toppings.
Another salad. I love salads in the summer because there are so many vegetables in season that your salad will never be the same. Plus, you can add whatever you want and there’s a minimum possibility it will taste bad.
What are your favorite summer staples?
