A Day In Food - Wednesday

Here we are. Today is the last installment of the "A Day In Food" mini series. I hope you've enjoyed seeing how easy and great meals can be without all that other junk you are used to. I've had more hits than I ever have before while doing this little segment, so hopefully we can do it again really soon. Until then, keep checking back for more posts about anything and everything eating.


Here we've got two poppy seed muffins, about 4 oz. of sausage, a whole cantaloupe, and some black coffee. The poppy seed muffins are made using coconut flour and the sausage is all natural (just pork and some red pepper flakes). Worried about time? The sausage took about 6 minutes in the cast iron skillet and the muffins took about 35 seconds to reheat in the microwave. Heck, the coffee took longer to finish brewing!


You should recognize this salad. It's the bacon and avocado salad I described last month in the "What's For Lunch?" post. Of course, I used my homemade balsamic salad dressing from that same post.


I'm big on not making things any more complicated than they have to be. Here you've got sliced banana and a handful of blueberries. I topped it with pecans, walnuts, and almonds.


I have to admit. This was my first time preparing brussel sprouts. I coated them in olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then I baked them at 400F for about 35 minutes. They came out pretty well I think. The carrots I steamed on high for about 5 minutes then on medium for another 12 minutes or so. I poured out all the water and added just a tiny bit of honey and some dill. The chicken I sliced and reheated in a saute pan with a little olive oil, rosemary, and balsamic. That's regular old iced tea to drink. How about well under $5 for everything?


  1. So it's really ridiculous that I haven't commented until now because I like seeing what you're eating when you post about it... but the bacon/avocado salad made me commit. I really like your blog/the idea that you've got behind it. :]
    Take care!

  2. So I tried baking the poppyseed muffins, and something strange happened. A layer of egg separated all along the bottom of all the muffins! This is my first time baking with coconut, so I'm not sure what went wrong. I couldn't find a labelled coconut flour, and used fine coconut meal instead; could this have caused the problem, or is there a difference... or was it from not mixing thoroughly? Anyway, its still delicious. Just as a breakfast, almost quiche, meal.

  3. Hey Sean,

    I'm not quite sure what happened! I use Bob's Red Mill:


    Or Tropical Traditions:


    Maybe try these products or mixing a bit more next time? Sorry I can't be of more help.
