Lookie! A breakfast that doesnâ€™t come a kiosk or a vending machine!
Traveling is officially done! No more flights until post baby now. Part to normalâ€¦ and Iâ€™m so happy about it.
Part #1 of breakfast was this delicious smoothie:
Scoop of sunflower butter
And Part #2 was toast and hardboiled eggs.
While I was away, the Husband figured out how to hard-boil eggs. Heâ€™s a really good cook, but since Iâ€™m the primary cooker in the relationship, he always ask me how to do things (â€œHow should I cook these sweet potatoes?â€ or â€œShould I boil this pasta on high or simmer it?â€). So I was pretty surprised that he actually figured out hard-boiling eggs all on his own while I was gone! He said he read a blog post about it â€“ now heâ€™s a pro! Iâ€™m gonna ask him to hard-boil all the eggs for the rest of our lives now.
Speaking of eggsâ€¦
A few days ago, I asked for protein snack suggestions, and boy â€“ did you guys answer! Here are some great protein snack ideas from The Protein Plane post. You can check out the comments for even more ideas.
Alina said, â€œSpicy roasted chickpeas! Theyâ€™re so good and SO easy. What you need to do: Put a pan of about a T of olive oil in a hot (400F) oven for about 3 minutes. Rinse and pat dry chickpeas, then put a teaspoon each of coriander powder and ground cumin seed into a bowl with them and mix. Take the hot oil out, pour the chickpeas on the pan and bake for 13 or so minutes. Let cool and use a slotted spoon to move onto paper towels.â€
Mary said, â€œOn my last trip to the store I picked up roasted edamame. They are crunchy and have a slightly nutty flavor.â€
Khushboo said, â€œGreek yogurt with protein powder stirred in is my face protein snack.â€
Jaclyn said, â€œHow â€™bout a banana slices and peanut/nut butter roll up wrap, celery sticks stuffed with cream cheese and topped with pumpkin seeds, individual (or big bags, packed in to-go containers) trail mixes, almonds mixed with dried fruit, or make a batch of protein muffins (nut butters, pro powders, seeds or nuts, etc.).
Charise said, â€œIâ€™m a fan on chickpeas or lentils mixed with some diced veggies, lemon, olive oil, and a little parmesan cheese for an easy veg plane snack/meal.â€
Tammy said, â€œChia seeds! You can sprinkle them on anything â€” yogurt, salad, put in protein shakes, etc.â€
Leila said, â€œI like to mix cottage cheese and salsa together then eat it like a dip with celery. Iâ€™ve also been enjoying peanut butter on graham crackers or caramel rice cakes for a sweet protein treat.â€
