What I'm eating July week 3

Some of this week's groceries

I am not the kind of person that can plan every meal by the day.  I just like to keep healthy things in the house so I can make healthy meals as I am inspired.  I love food, really love it.  I make up new recipes in my head constantly so trying to decide on Sunday what I am going to want at a given point is impossible, hence keeping healthy ingredients on hand.  I can wing it without a meal becoming a calorie/fat fest.  Plus, I am pregnant so I want to be able to give in to those cravings while making them more healthy.  A win for me. 

I do have a few ideas for the week and will put up recipes as I try them and decide they are worthy. 

Stir Fried Quinoa
serves 2

1.5 cups of cooked quinoa
1/2 cup parmesan blend
1 avocado, cubed
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 whole eggs
2 egg whites
olive oil or non stick spreay of your choice

Mix the first 4 ingredients together.  (yes, even the avocado.  I promise it will be worth it.)  Warm in a skillet in either the olive oil or non stick spray.  You want a slight brown to come on the quinoa.  Mix the eggs and the egg whites and pour over the quinoa.  Stir the egg/quinoa mixture until the eggs are set.  Serve with a little extra parmesan on top if you wish. 

My Favorite Snack
serves 1

2 TBLS Pecans (rough chop is fine)
1 TBLS dark chocolate chips

Measure, mix and eat!  Simple snack for those chocolate munchies and not too unhealthy.  Antioxidants are good for you after all. 
If you are one of those people that remembers to buy snack size plastic baggies, you can make up a few to have on hand at work or to keep in your purse when you are running errands.
