Yelping: Spot Coffee

So I just starting reviewing places on Yelp! Thought I would add it to my list of things I post on here also. Trying to make this a multitasking/multifunctional blog.

Meal Prepping For my Double Shift!

Ok…So I TRIED really REALLY hard to be healthy and prep my food for the whole day a couple of days ago.

I made my protein smoothie mix, and tried to use romaine lettuce instead of bread. Let’s just say it was a complete fail…no…I cannot do it…Or at least right now I can’t eat lettuce leaves and pretend I am enjoying the meal and satisfied. I ended up caving in and destroying sweet potato fries and a grilled chicken wrap instead because I was still starving. Meal replacement shakes are a much better/easier option for me to get the nutrients I need and feel satisfied. So I am planning on having a big meal from now on once a day (preferable breakfast), and using my meal replacement/protein shakes for rest of the day. We shall see how that works out.

Howeverrr!! For those of you who think this is a great idea I will describe what I did here:

Egg and Romaine lettuce: just cooked the egg in a round pancake shape, then added avocado, tomato, cayenne pepper, and pepper.

Turkey and Romaine lettuce: horseradish honey mustard as the dressing, turkey, caramelized onions, and tomatoes.

I think the best way would be to eat them with the pieces of lettuce on either side like a sandwich. I tried to “wrap” it and the lettuce just kept falling apart.

Caramelized onions:

Sliced Tomatoes:

  • (pretty interesting way to cut a tomato!)

I will not be trying this again, but if you like it feel free! 🙂 haha

Avocado Sandwich

 

One of my new favorite things to eat! Avocado and egg sandwiches!

  1. To toast or not to toast the bread! (toast for me most def! darkkkk)… One of my friends at work also suggested using lettuce leaves instead of bread if you are watching your carbohydrates.
  2. Just split the avocado in half using a technique as shown in this video:

  1. I like to mash it in a container because I never eat it all, and like to use it later. Also I don’t like how slices slide around when you are trying to eat it. I’m a huge fan of nicely spread out and even for my sandwich spreads.
  2. Then I usually just heat a small pan, and then place one egg in it. I like to break the yolk so I can spread it out somewhat evenly, so it isn’t all in one place. Also make sure you keep it in somewhat of the shape of the bread or whatever you are using is like.
  3. Then just place the egg on the avocado!
  4. Finishing touches of pepper and cayenne pepper do it for me. I ❤ cayenne pepper! MMMMMMM

Might try adding some jalapenos next ;).
