WIAW Chocolate Lovers Edition

Hello!! We’ve made it to the halfway point of the work week! I hope you’re hanging in there…I hope I am hanging in there too as I’m writing this post a day in advance. Today I’m linking up for another WIAW post. I had no theme in mind going in to this day but realized I had quite a chocolatey day so we’re going for it! 

Breakfast 6:30am:

Coconut flour breakfast bake

The night before I made Kate’s Coconut Flour Breakfast Bake for Br’inner and LOVED IT! It made four servings so I decided to have my 2nd portion for breakfast. Guys, make this recipe it’s totally delicious! I added dark chocolate chips and peanut butter to the bake and topped mine with some more peanut butter and fresh berries. I also had coffee with coconut milk creamer.

Snack 9:45am:

Dark choc bar

At work, I had to go to a two hour meeting beginning at 10, so I quickly ate this granola bar because I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat until lunch. This was my first time having this flavor and I really liked it..great for a quick snack.

Lunch 12:00pm:

free work lunch

After the meeting, we were given a free lunch! I brought my own gluten free bread and made a sandwich with the lunch meat platter. This had mayo, smoked turkey, lettuce, and tomato. I also had two pickles and sweet potato salad with roasted pecans. It looks like a boring blob of orange but it was extremely delicious!

Snack 5:15pm:

choc protein shake

I was really hungry when I got home from work so I made this quick shake before I worked out. It had 1 cup of almond milk, 1 scoop of Vega chocolate protein powder, 2 ice cubes, 1 teaspoon of almond butter and a pinch of cinnamon. It really hit the spot! I then did a lower body strength training butt and thigh workout which was really killer!

Dinner 8:15pm:

Foodie Friday dinner

For dinner I had Friday’s Foodie Friday recipe so it took twice as long to get dinner ready. That was okay with me though because I was so happy with how it turned out. It’s gonna be a delicious one! On the side I had sweet potato fries, avocado, and tomato. It’s vegan, gluten free, and delicious! Coming your way Friday!

Dessert 9:45pm:

Dessert

I enjoyed a random half of a chocolate chip cookie that I had bought from the vegan gluten free bakery nearby and some dark chocolate truffle cashew milk ice cream. 

Some days all I want is savory, some days all I want are veggies and fruits, and some days like today, I have a raging sweet tooth. I try to listen to my cravings and enjoy the foods without saying they’re “bad” or “good” foods. Now, I feel satisfied and ready for some savory tomorrow. I’ll see ya tomorrow for some Thinking Out Loud!

Do you love dark chocolate? Do you ever have days where all you want is something sweet at every meal?

    • Thanks, Gretchen. I know I always rejoice during avocado season because theres like zero prep work involved haha!

  1. Yay for all the chocolate!! I love cashew milk ice cream. The snickerdoodle flavor is my favorite! Also that shake sounds soo good. Definitely something I would try! Vega is my fav protein powder.

    • YESSSS The snickerdoodle one is so amazing i cant stop buying it! This was the first time that I bought the dark chocolate truffle–it was so goood! I think out of all of the non-dairy milks, cashew milk is probably the creamiest so i think it makes the best ice creams!

  2. yum!! I love chocolate. Dark chocolate is my favorite!! Some days I end up eating a lot of it too. I really need to try that cashew milk ice cream!!

    • Yes, cashew milk ice cream in general is amaaazing but this particular flavor along with the snickerdoodle (the cookie they use in the snickerdoodle is GF) is my favorite!

  3. Love it – and chocolate is definitely not a bad theme to live up to!

    I actually just did my first What I Ate Wednesday – it’s a lot of pressure when you’re sharing your true eating habits with the world! But now I can’t wait to include your protein shake in next week’s. That looks and sounds delicious!

    XO, Jessica

    • Glad you enjoyed it! Yes, it can be a little scary. Cant wait to check out your wIAW post! Hope you love the shake as much as i did–its so good!

  4. I’m so glad you liked the bake!!! I’m making it again tomorrow bc I loved it so much too. I don’t go a day without chocolate either! Yum!

  5. Yup and yup. Days differ constantly. Some days I crave huge salads and others, like today, I go through the day realizing I had hardly a single veggie – because obviously that’s not what I was hankering. But I can guarantee you, there is always… always… chocolate.

  6. I absolutely love dark chocolate!!! All this food looks soo good. Now I have a serious craving for sweet potato fries too. Have you ever tried dipping them in balsamic reduction? It’s super good!
