Meatless Mexican WIAW

I’m changing up today’s WIAW just a bit.  Instead of highlighting what I ate Tuesday, I’m showing off Monday’s eats.  I had to go into the office to run some reports (it takes sooooooo long to pull the data at home for these big ones), so I figured my on-the-go meals might be slightly more entertaining than at-home ones.

As I mentioned yesterday, I did an at-home workout on Monday.  I mixed up a TBS of my new banana protein with water before the workout, and I used the rest of it with 1/3 cup oats and 1/2 banana to make a post-workout bowl of protein oats.

Lemme’ just say – major yum!  I will not be using all the samples that Muscle & Fitness sent me (ie: thermogenic fat burners ain’t on the menu), but I’m glad I tried this!  The banana flavor is pretty sweet, but it has a malt-like taste.  You know, like the Whopper malt ball kind of malt.  I’m glad I have one more packet of the Gaspari Nutrition MyoFusion Probiotic Series- Banana Perfection.

Snack = almonds & the other half of that banana

Lunch = BHG’s Mexican minestrone soup (so yummy!)

Snack = Quest bar.  I normally don’t like two supplements in a day, but this was great for on-the-go.  I’m having some Daisy cottage cheese and an apple for afternoon snack the rest of the week.

Snack = gala apple.  Daylight savings time has my tummy all messed up.  I was soooo hungry after work!

Dinner = seitan tacos and side salad… plus some unsweetened almond milk because my tacos were too spicy

  1. Rarely do I complain about food being too spicy (spicier the better!), but I did have some at a thai restaurant that I just had to give up on. My mouth was on FIRE.

    Apples are a snack I have all the time on hand. Plus they go great with PB:)

    I am not a huge fan of spicy, but the last time we went out for Thai they overdid it and it was not even enjoyable:(

  3. I’ve never seen that quest bar flavor before (I love quest!). I don’t know what too spicy means. I love spice! I have a few crockpot recipes I’ve just posted (French onion soup, pumpkin cauliflower, chili)….I’m loving the crockpot lately! So convenient.

  4. That happened to me once, and it involved habanero peppers. Ouch. Everything looks great though!

  5. I’m probably the biggest wimp when it comes to spicy food – I can’t handle it at all. It doesn’t help that my stomach goes all sorts of crazy when things get too hot either. People actually give me a hard time because my food ends up being bland a lot of the time, but bland food beats stomach woes any day in my books!

  6. I sometimes make things too spicy to eat.. that is the WORST!

  7. Yum, minestrone sounds really good! We like to make a vegetarian chickpea curry in the crockpot, I’ll have to share the recipe soon. We also like veggie split pea soup- http://www.mommyrunfast.com/crockpot-comfort/ or veggie chili… mmm.

  8. Hahaha I’ve never made food too spicy for ME to eat, but I’ve accidentally made it too spicy for others ;) oops! I guess I like spicy food a little too much!! hehe

    Meatless Mexican is my faaaavorite!! Happy WIAW!

  9. Whenever I go overboard on the spicy in my food I usually just power through and eat it anyway – I love the pain. :) That banana supplement actually sounds really good and I’m not much of a protein powder person!

  10. What delicious day of eats!!!
    I love the idea of a Mexican minestrone! Yum!!!

    I made some wonton soup a couple of weeks ago that turned out so spicy I cried. Inwound up draining the broth and redoing it. All the almond milk in the world would not have helped.

    Here’s my crockpot soup (it’s a printable) http://www.grandmasguidetolife.blogspot.com/2012/11/potato-soup-crockpot-vegan-recipe.html

  12. Your tacos look delicious! And sounds like your morning smoothie turned out really well too!

  14. I can honestly say that I have never made anything too spicy for my liking. The main reason for this is that I don’t make spicy foods ever. So there you go :) It’s not that I don’t like spicy foods, it’s just that the seasonings are a hazard to my stomach. Haha.

    I used to love making chili in the crock pot. Basically an idiot-proof recipe though: 1 large can tomato sauce, 1 small can diced tomato, 1 can drained black/kidney beans, 1 cup diced peppers, 1 cup diced mushroom, 1 cup diced onion, 1 chili seasoning packet (low sodium or mild), ground beef (if you aren’t vegan or vegetarian). Basically cook the meat, and add it all to a crock pot. BAM. Before I found out that I was allergic to tomatoes… I made this every week! To limit the sodium I got the salt-free or low sodium versions of all the canned/packaged ingredients.

  15. YUM to the concept of banana malt balls. I’ll take that bowl of ‘proats’ any time. :)
