Monday in Meals. Rest Day Edition.

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday!

Before diving into this post, I just wanted to share that my fiancé’s house is almost back to normal after Hurricane Irma. Aaaand…we also picked a wedding venue Woho!

Yesterday I was trying to document my day in pictures and I realized all of them were about food. I was still tired from my Sunday run which was only 3 miles (I know, am I even a runner anymore?), So I guess this will be a what I eat in a day: rest day edition.

When I’m not hungry for breakfast, smoothies seem to work really well. I made this one with oats, frozen berries, peanut butter and almond milk.

Lunch was leftovers that still tasted really good. Chicken breast, roasted potatoes and green beans.

At around 4pm I was really craving something sweet so I slowly had this Kashi Bar as I was working. By the way, this flavor is just the best.

I was supposed to cook last night for me and my fiancé. However, there was a huge/horrible accident at Florida’s Turnpike that made me sit in traffic for an extra hour (besides the actual hour of commute). Two hours in the car was not fun, but I’m praying for all of the people involved in the crash.

Given my huge delay, Luke took over the kitchen to make this delicious dinner. Caribbean chicken, sautéed peppers and peas.

And last but not least, dessert. My soon to be mother in law introduced me to this deliciousness. If you like caramel and dark chocolate, please try them. I had 3 of them and wish I had space for more.

What’s your favorite dessert? 

What do you do when you are sitting in traffic? 

– I pray the Lord to give me extra patience.


  1. Kashi chewy granola bars are the healthier version of the Quaker ones that I had when I was younger and delicious! When I’m stuck in traffic, I’ll usually put on a better playlist (assuming I’m stopped and have time to safely look at my phone). Then I’ll sing along and jam out a bit ha.

      I know! they’re delicious!

      Well your idea on what to do when your stuck in traffic is not that different than what I did. However, my bad mood was really banning me from enjoying the music.

      Hope you have a nice day, Maureen:)

  2. So glad to hear your fiance’s house is almost back to normal 🙂 and congrats on picking a venue!!! Such a good feeling, right?

    Looks like a delicious day of eats. Now I’m craving some candy… My favorite dessert is probably a piece of dark chocolate!

      Thank you Marina 🙂 It is a very good feeling. But I’m sill feeling overwhelmed with some other details of wedding planning.

      It was a delicious day of eats. Sometimes I don’t put the time on cooking a nice meal and then end up eating mindless meals.

      If you like dark chocolate you should definitely try this milky ways. Enjoy the rest of your day:)
