We got the beets.

15 Nov

Why did I wake up craving pickled beets today? I didn’t have them for breakfast, but I did incorporate them in my lunch and dinner. My mom gives me jars of her pickled beets thankfully, so I didn’t have to shop or do any work.

I was already thinking last night that today was going to be a rest day. It was on the shedule, but I don’t take them if I don’t want or need to. I am glad I did. Lifting is getting more intense with Les Mills and I greatly appreciated the extra sleepy time. In fact. I am looking forward to doing it again very soon.

I woke up , started my work computer, got ready, and had my shake for breakfast. Second breakfast (a couple hours later) was peanut butter oatmeal. Snack was greek yogurt. Then it was time for lunch. I had a giant baby green salad. Toppings: pecans, tomato, red onion, and avocado.

I snacked on some popcorn with Maddox this afternoon and had a green apple. I am either always eating or washing dishes. Why am I telling you everything I ate today? I have no idea. Maybe you need snack or meal ideas. There.

I wasn’t that hungry for supper, but I knew I wanted a sweet potato….and beets. Can you guess what I made? I chopped up a sweet potato and mixed a tablespoon of coconut oil, salt, and pepper with it. 400 degree oven for 40 minutes. House smelled super deliciously amazing.

Doesn’t this look good? This would be a great side for any meal. Or, how about Thanksgiving? Oooo. So, I wasn’t too creative tonight, but this is what I wanted. It made a pretty plate. And it was so freaking good. The sweetness of the potato and the pickled beets mixed wonderfully. Another hit in my books.
