We had brunch, coconut pancakes with your peanut butter banana glaze – which was delicious! And a side of blueberries :)

Just had a huge kale salad with olive oil, sesame seeds and garlic hummus. I licked the bowl clean.

3 whole eggs, veggies, olive oil, salsa, avocado, and toast with butter. Your meal is more like a tiny snack.

YUM!! I had an egg sandwich on an everything bagel. The pantry is still a bare.

Yes, but at least you got to overlook a beautiful city while eating it – I LOVE your windows in your new place.

True enough. Thank you! It’s pretty neat! :)

Pumpkin and feta salad with subdried tomatoes, grilled chicken and sourdough on the side!

Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile March 11, 2012 at 3:12 pm

That sounds so good! I had a salad with chicken muffins :D

Allison March 11, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Your post made me hungry. Fried eggs are the best!

Carla March 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

I had a plum and cottage cheese with walnuts and a little bit of organic honey. Yours looks better! :)

Jordan@almondjay March 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm

This is exactly what I want for dinner :)

I hope you were able to make the craving happen!

Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon March 11, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Looks yummy and very similar to the dinner I’m about to make! For lunch today I had a yummy sandwich (apricot hummus, pear slices, and spinach) with some leftover tofu, carrot sticks, celery sticks, and grapes on the side!

Roasted veggies with nutritional yeast…never fails to win me over! (cauliflower, celeriac both with curry powder, sweet potato, kale and brussels!)

I had leftovers and they never fail me. Sometimes I think they improve with the time they have to sit in the fridge, so the flavours can mingle a little more. Dinner tonight though is Mexican, can you say guacamole and salsa with spicy nachos?! I think so!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:11 am

I crave Mexican ALL the time!

Holly March 11, 2012 at 4:57 pm

No lunch for me because I hate a late breakfast: 1 whole egg + 1 egg white scrambled with fire roasted red/yellow/green peppers & onions, a bit of parm & hot sauce; half a whole wheat English muffin toasted w/almond butter; 2 clementines. And coffee! :)

Reply

Holly March 11, 2012 at 4:57 pm

*ate, not hate. Sorry for the typo!

DUCK eggs, over easy, with salsa; a side of green chiles, and a bowl with frozen berry blend, greek yogurt and honey.

The duck eggs come from a gal that I have choir rehearsals with- she has a little farmhouse and sells eggs, and I got a batch with 2 duck eggs in it! They are MONSTERS!

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:11 am

Do they taste like regular eggs? How interesting!

Reply

Wendy Heath March 12, 2012 at 6:20 am

They were a touch firmer, and tasted… I dunno… richer? Probably because they have more protein and cholesterol than chickie eggs. Definitely interesting! Not sure I’ll get more from her, but glad I got a chance to try them.

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 11, 2012 at 5:46 pm

That looks so good! You can never go wrong with roasted veggies.

I had thickened up leftover black bean and sweet potato soup over brown rice with a pineapple and avocado salsa.

That sounds fantastic!

I just finished dinner, but my lunch was greens with braised red cabbage and salmon!

You have posted about vitamin D supplements and my doc just prescribed me a weekly supplement. Can you tell me what to expect? When will I feel the awesomeness? Also, I share your love of ketchup on pretty much everything. Even green beans. Especially green beans! Sometimes I give plain, old roasted veggies a squirt of ketchup love.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 11, 2012 at 8:01 pm

I seriously felt better within 2 days. The day I took it I didn’t feel a difference, but the next day I wasn’t as tired and my headache that I had for WEEKS was gone. The headache has yet to return. And I just feel overall happier. It’s incredible!

Jen March 11, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Family lunch, we had scalloped potatoes, ham and a green salad. Sooooooo good

Can I be honest?? I forgot to eat lunch!!! Yes, FORGOT! Finals week…..enough said.

Yeah that’s never happened to me! :)

Kelly March 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

My lunch was appalling….a cup of jasmine rice with Braggs and….four slices of salami. *shame* BUT, I had overnight oats for breakfast (LOVE), and tilapia for dinner, so at least I kind of made up for it. Sort of.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:09 am

haha there’s nothing wrong with that! Unless you’re a vegetarian? lol

Alexis @ Hummusapien March 11, 2012 at 9:52 pm

mmm love the roasted veggies and eggs. I made green protein pancakes but they didn’t cook all the way in the middle :( My Chipotle for dinner made up for it though!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:08 am

That stinks! Whenever I have pancakes that don’t cook through all the way (there’s a lot of flops over here…) I nuke them in the microwave and that seems to do the trick.

Marina@cowboycountryvegetarian March 11, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I’ve made so many good eats, come see it, just photos today…:) Now I am hungry for an egg…

Deanna March 11, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Mmmm.. your lunch looks great! On a side note, just wondering if you know what kind of Vitamin D you are taking; D2 or D3? I’m reading up on it trying to weigh the pros and cons of each kind..

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:07 am

D3 is the best to take because you don’t have to go into the sun for it to work in your body. With D2, you have to go in the sun for it to convert itself to start working in your body. The prescription I’m taking right now is D2 because they don’t make such large doses in D3, so I’ve just been making sure to go out in the sun for 15-20 minutes every day without sunscreen. After I get through my megavitamins, I’ll likely pick up a D3 supplement.

Leftover oregano lemon chicken with sweet potato, green beans and yellow patty pan squash. Added some fresh coriander, a squeeze of lemon juice and a bit of salt and pepper. Fast, fresh, and simple

Reply

Katie March 12, 2012 at 12:46 am

Perfect!! I had a cup of chili for lunch today. It was good, but not as good as that looks.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey March 12, 2012 at 6:08 am

Oh I love chili!

Reply

pluvk March 17, 2012 at 7:20 pm

This looks so good that I went out and bought nutritional yeast today! I hope I like it. =)
