Remember when I said seven days of work in a row wouldn’t be too bad? I’m old now. I am tired. I don’t have a ton to share because 2/4 dinners this week were Chipotle. And I only cooked one of the two non-Chipotle nights, the other we walked the dog to get milkshakes and then I got into bed the minute we got home at 7:30, fully dressed.
Coffee, obviously. Starbucks pro tip – order the cold brew “with room, no water” so you can ensure it doesn’t get too diluted behind the counter. I put milk in my coffee anyway so I’d rather temper the concentrate strength myself.
I’m still dying over the Grady’s Cold Brew with fat-free half & half and milk.
My lunches this week were centered around a generous box of freeze-dried fruits samples from Crunchies. The products are vegan, gluten-free, and kosher, and they contain no added sugars or flavorings, just fruits that have undergone a low-pressure drying process. Bonus – Crunchies sources the fruits directly from the farmers who grow them.
the free products were my only compensation for this post, all my own opinions, blah blah
We buy a lot of freeze-dried fruit because Adam often packs it for work so we were excited to try some new options.
Lows – raspberry. Too seedy and sour/bitter. To be fair, I don’t like any of the freeze-dried raspberries I’ve tried and I don’t love fresh raspberries.
High – everything else! These were the best freeze-dried fruits we’ve tasted. The strawberries weren’t too sweet or sour – no mouth pucker, the banana flavor was super strong, the grapes were sweet and a bit chewy, as were the pineapples. 10/10.
I enjoyed the fruits in yogurt bowls for lunch (I took half the bag and Adam took the other half with him). Plain Siggi’s, strawberry banana, Nonni’s dark chocolate banana.
0% Fage, raspberries, pom seeds, maple peanut butter.
Vanilla yogurt, grapes, pom seeds.
2% Fage, pineapple, coconut butter.
And here’s my only dinner photo, turkey and eggs.
Ground turkey sautéed with celery, evoo, tomato paste, Sriracha, brown sugar, and fish sauce. Topped with soft scrambled eggs. I made Adam a similar but less spicy dish for breakfast when he got home from work and he loved it.
Now I have a three-day weekend!
