Meals + Weekend Pics + Peanut Butter Maple Snack Bites

Hey guys!

How was the weekend?

Brian and I hit the slopes in Breckenridge and I am happy to say that I survived and came out in one piece 🙂

Brian and Tara Skiing

We left SUPER early and arrived in Breckenridge with plenty of time to enjoy our pre-ski tradition of coffee at Clint’s.  If you are traveling to Breck (summer, winter, fall, whenever!) I definitely recommend going to Clint’s.  They have coffee and amazing homemade baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, acai bowls…I literally drool every time we walk in.

How beautiful is that sunrise!?

I love that they make a mean coconut milk latte 🙂

Brian loves the warm, homemade cinnamon rolls…I wish they were low FODMAP!

Here are some other pics from the weekend!

After skiing, we got home and spent some time cleaning and organizing our house…I made an impulse purchase at Trader Joe’s while grocery shopping on Friday and bought these kitchen herbs.  Luckily, I found a good spot for them with easy access so I’m hoping for two things:

  1. They stay alive
  2. I remember to use them 🙂

In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s day on Saturday, I whipped up some healthy No Bake Cookies from the Tone it Up girls.  Yum!

We ate delicious quinoa bowls for dinner.  Brian’s bowl was:  quinoa, black beans, chicken, roasted zucchini, bell pepper and carrots, tomato, salsa, spinach, and avocado.  My bowl was quinoa, chicken, the same roasted veggies, spinach, and Texas Pete hot sauce.  Yum!

We watched a couple of movies this weekend, but other than that things were pretty chill.  🙂

Meals for the week:

Here is a peak at some dinners I have planned for the week–

  • Berry, citrus, chicken, pecan kale and spinach salad inspired by Chelsea’s Messy Apron
  • Salmon tacos with these homemade coconut flour tortilla/crepes
  • Chicken Curry with quinoa
  • Veggie quinoa patties with roasted veggies and a side salad
  • Chicken or salmon (depending on what we have left) with roasted veggies and a side salad (this is my super simple go to meal!)

Prep that needs to be done:

  • Make this low FODMAP taco seasoning (done!)
  • Make Brian’s breakfast sandwiches (done)
  • Make tuna salad for Brian’s lunches this week
  • Make quinoa
  • Hardboiled eggs (done!)
  • Chopped veggies (done!)

And I have a recipe for ya!

I really love little “bites” for snacks or a sweet little somethin’ somethin’ after lunch or dinner.  Lots of bite recipes that I’ve made in the past include dates, almonds, cashews, or dried fruit which are all high FODMAP foods (aka potential tummy irritants).  Also, little snacks like this are great to take on the go.

About a week ago, I was getting some work done on our car and I found myself at the car place for WAY longer than expected…and I was starving…without any food or snacks.  It was totally fine and I ate lunch as soon as I got home, but while my brain and body was hungry I started to brainstorm some “bite” recipes that I could take on the road with me…and that’s how these Peanut Butter Maple Snack Bites were born!

These little snack bites taste like the inside of a buckeye…aka they are sweet and delicious with some pretty healthy ingredients! Win win!

Peanut Butter Maple Snack Bites:

Yields:  4 bites (1 bite per serving)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter (you could probably sub in your favorite nut butter if you aren’t a PB fan)

  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined and “dough” forms.
  2. Roll into four equal sized balls and store in the fridge.
  3. Enjoy!

Comments

  1. I’ve been wanting to have my own fresh herbs but I pretty much kill every plant so I’m afraid they wouldn’t last long! Hope you have more of a green thumb! 🙂

  2. Now I want a little windowsill with those herbs in my kitchen too! Love the idea. Those bites look awesome – I need to whip up something for on the go since my tummy rumbled this morning in bodypump 🙂

  3. Looks like a fun weekend! I have need been skiing! x

  4. The fact that you live so close to Breckenridge makes me SO jealous!! I think that was my favorite place when I was in Denver last Summer. Clint’s baked goods are out of this world!

  5. So jealous that you got to go skiing!! Didn’t get around to it this year and am very depressed! Those bites look great <3
