Sooooo…didja miss me?
Sorry about leaving you guys hanging for Pancake Sunday, but unfortunately I had an e-date with Uncle Sam hosted by the Service de Internal Revenue which ended in me lacking the brain cells necessary to measure ingredients.
Note to self…next year, don’t procrastinate!…haha, yeah right!
But you had to know I missed you guys…and look, I’m back just in time to party!
Plus, you know…it’s always fun to drool over other people’s food! 😉
This week, I decided to do things a little differently. I’ve been doing some thinking lately and as ashamed as I am to admit that the idea had to come in the form of a veggie pizza slap in the face, I’m willing to face the truth…
Remember mine and BB’s Friday the 13th pizza?
My plate of yummy cheesy (and vegetable-y) goodness!
And then BB ate the REST of the pizza!
All of a sudden it dawned on me…I’m not feeding my man enough!
After being on my own for a while and learning to cook for one, once BB and I made it official, I thought,
“Well, I guess now I’m cooking for two!”
Only that’s not the case when you have a man who works out 4-5 days a week thus giving him the title of “bottomless pit”
So this weekend, I experimented a bit…and took pictures for comparison 🙂
And so the His & Her’s Edition of WIAW was born!
Two slices of French toast with 1/2 a banana and about 1 tablespoon of PB
FOUR slices of French toast with 1/2 a banana and probably 2 tablespoons of PB!
Spinach topped with Salmon salad*, tomatoes, and 1/4 an avocado
*super simple recipe coming soon!
Spinach topped with salmon salad x 2, tomatoes, and 1/2 an avocado
The difference is subtle…but his bowl is actually about two times the depth of mine.
Five egg WHITES mixed with Incredible Greens, two slices of toast with PB,
and 1/2 an orange
Three WHOLE eggs, two slices of toast with 1/2 an avocado, and 1/2 an orange
Two of Jamie Eason’s turkey muffins*, roasted asparagus, and steamed carrots
*Seriously, if you haven’t tried these yet, make them NOW! They are so simple to make, so filling, and the spices can easily be switched around for endless flavor combinations!
FOUR turkey muffins, roasted asparagus, and steamed carrots
Believe it or not, he only ate half his carrots…I finished the rest!
Oh, and I just HAVE to show you the ninja pic I snuck in the car the other day:
That would be ONE Dr. Pepper and TWO Red Bulls to my ONE liter of water!
Where DOES he put it?…but more importantly, how were his eyes not bugging out from all that sugar?! Lol
One thing I love about BB is that he will eat ANYTHING I set in front of him….he is not the least bit picky, but I just have to remember that he is my “growing boy” and I have to amp it up a bit in the kitchen if I’m going to compete with his metabolism.
Now, I just need to know where I can get some industrial-sized cookware so I can start getting in touch with my inner cafeteria lady! 😉
If you are in a relationship, how do you prepare meals for you and your significant other so you are both satisfied?
