microwave muffin & WIAW

Welcome to Wednesday and another round of “What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday”!

For the most part, I’m still “falling into good habits” with the Paleo diet. I say for the most part because I’ve eased up on myself a bit {but I’ll save that for another post}.

After seeing so many microwave muffin posts around the blogosphere; I’ve been dying to try one. Last night I searched around the internet and came up with one from shoretorun.com. I adapted it ever so slightly….it already had pumpkin in it, so we were good. ;)

This may be the greatest creation ever! Super easy and so many variations to try!!

Breakfast 6:00 am- I first, sprayed a large mug with evoo spray. Then, I threw in all of my ingredients and stirred. Last, microwave for 5-7 minutes and Voilà! …breakfast is served. These would also make a perfect snack or after dinner treat.

I just turned the mug upside down on my plate and the muffin slipped right out.

I cut it in half and topped it with coconut butter and sliced banana. It turned out better than I expected and this is going to be a new go-to breakfast, especially for those rushed mornings.

I also had half of a white necterine. This one was from HEB and did not even begin compare to the ones from Trader Joe’s. :(

So, if you’d like to recreate, here you go…..


Snack 9:00- Strawberries {I have to get my red in for the plantPOWER challenge!} and pumpkin pie balls {I’m enjoying these more everyday!}

Lunch 11:45- Leftover Italian Stuffed Acorn Squash….I love just grabbing this out of the fridge for lunch. So filling and there’s nothing to prepare!

Snack 3:00- Do I really even have to tell you?

Landen’s friend took him to gymnastics today, so I actually got to come home and enjoy my evening. Since it was so nice out, Max and I went on a 3-1/2 mile walk. Then I came home and threw together a really wonderful dinner.

Dinner 6:00- I cooked up a couple of thinly sliced chicken breasts, red pepper, zucchini, and mushrooms with marsala sauce…super quick, easy and tasty {recipe to come}. I served the chicken and veggies with a side salad.

 Dessert 7:30- For a little after dinner sweet treat, I had another pumpkin pie ball crumbled over Trader Joe’s fat free Greek frozen yogurt {not Paleo…I know}. Perfect end to a delicious day!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. I love microwave muffins. I have a gazillion my blog and have them basically everyday for breakfast and for a snack! Plus, for me, they are a great way to get some protein in with protein powder! So… I guess that would be the “something yummy I ate yesterday.
