A Week of Eats

Morning darlin’s. I’m here with more daily eats and this is a BIG ONE. I’ve been sticking to my plan of taking photos (finally – it was hard to get back into the habit of this after not doing it for a while!). Now I’m thinking I don’t want to break this pattern. Ha! Who’s in for December eats? Leave a comment – let me know!

Before we dive in, I just want to say that these posts are NOT for comparison (if these posts are triggering for you in anyway, scroll THESE posts instead).

I share my eats in hopes that you’d leave here today feeling inspired and full of PERMISSION to listen to YOUR BODY, as I listen to mine. I hope these posts fill you with the FAITH you need to let go of ALL food rules/control (just as I have!).

ALSO, I am not 100% confident that I photographed EVERYTHING I ate. There were times where I had a few pieces of cheese/crackers that were not photographed, a couple chips here and there, etc… So just know, this is not a black and white “this is what I ate post.” These are just the main meals.

Ready?

Thursday

Homemade Sunday Brunch | breakfast burrito - yum! Eggs, bacon, potatoes, cheddar cheese, and homemade salsa wrapped in a warm tortilla.

Thursday morning started off with a breakfast burrito – yum! Eggs, bacon, potatoes, cheddar cheese, and homemade salsa wrapped in a warm tortilla. When we do Sunday brunches, the food lasts me into the week. It’s awesome!

Homemade Chili with a side of cottage cheese and Fritos

Lunch was leftover chili (again with the leftovers – I intentionally always make extra!) with a side of cottage cheese and Fritos that I didn’t finish. Dumped the Fritos back in the bag. The chili was awesome and just enough! Here’s the link to the chili recipe.

Salmon (cooked with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and a little bit of oregano - so good!), rice, and avocado.

For dinner I made salmon (cooked with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and a little bit of oregano – so good!), rice, and avocado. I wish I could say that those veggies were good but they were not, so I threw them out. I had some bad brussels sprouts in there that ruined the whole batch. Darn!

Friday

Scrambled Eggs with Sourdough Toast

Friday morning I had two eggs over-medium chopped up into a million pieces and two small slices of sourdough, toasted, with Kerrygold butter. Mmm-mmm good!

Salmon, avocado, and rice with Tamari (a wheat free soy sauce that I tend to opt-for whenever it's available) and sriracha. Yum!

 Trader Joe's Butternut Squash Raviolis with Salmon

Dinner was butternut squash raviolis with leftover salmon. Are you starting to sense how much you can do with leftovers? And how easy it makes eating at home during the week! You definitely do not have to cook a fresh meal each time you eat. Just re-purpose leftovers!

Saturday

Scrambled Eggs with Sourdough Toast

Saturday morning started off with eggs and toast that I took upstairs with me and nibbled on while I got ready to grab coffee with my friend Shannon.

The first big snow of the season in Reno, Nevada from Hub Coffee Roasters.

She picked me up and we went to Hub coffee where I got a cappuccino. So good, and soooo cozy. Saturday was the first big snow of the season. I’ve never lived anywhere where it’s snowed, so this was sooo special for me.

The first big snow of the season in Reno, Nevada from Hub Coffee Roasters.

I took and shared about a-zillion photos because I was so excited. Ah, I’m loving this snow! I just have to be extra conscious to get out of the house more because it is pretty gloomy and grey outside. I can see why people have seasonal mood swings. Trying to be extra aware of this.

Trader Joe's Butternut Squash Ravioli

When I got home I nibbled on the last of the butternut squash ravioli and met up with my friend Nichole. We ran errands together (TJ’s, Petco, Barnes and Nobles, and Target) and got Razor scooters while we were out. SO fun! We rode them around the neighborhood when we got home and goofed off. So great to have a friend who will ride scooters with me 😉

Nigiri (salmon and tuna) and seaweed salad, cucumber salad, and miso soup, plus a few bites of other appetizers we ordered from a local sushi restaurant in Reno, Nevada. Yum!

After our shopping spree we came back to my house, snacked on a few pretzels and then went to sushi with our friend Bob. He’s always down for sushi! I didn’t take many photos there, but I had lots of nigiri (salmon and tuna) and seaweed salad, cucumber salad, and miso soup, plus a few bites of other appetizers we ordered. Yum!

Sunday

Mimosas and Breakfast Burritos with Eggs, Bacon, Potatoes, Cheese, and Avocado Inside.

Sunday morning started off with Church with friends (I had a GoMacro bar on the way to Church). After Church we all met up at our house and made Sunday brunch. Breakfast burritos and mimosa’s. Yum!

Throughout the day I had MAJOR cramps so after my friends left I spent a little time cleaning and then napped before the movies with girlfriends.

Right before the movies I had a couple pieces of cheese with salami and that did the trick to hold me over. At the movies I had a glass of wine and was happy as a clam. We watched “Instant Family” which I later told Marco was my favorite movie! I thought it was SO good! Have any of you seen it?

Tortellini, Ground Beef, Cheese, and a side of Cherry Tomatoes.

When I got home I had a super late dinner of tortellini, ground beef, cheese, and a side of cherry tomatoes. Such a random but delicious craving.

Monday

Breakfast Burritos with Eggs, Bacon, Potatoes, Cheese, and Avocado Inside.

Monday morning started off with a leftover burrito and coffee, following quiet time.

Beef Tortellini. Super simple and delicious!

For lunch, Marco and I ate the rest of the beef tortellini. Super simple and delicious!

I didn’t take a photo at dinner, but I went to a friends house, had a couple glasses of wine and a piece of stuffed chick with some kale salad. It was delicious! We spent the evening playing Monopoly and had a blast! I’m terrible at Monopoly.

Ha! Typically… great at budgeting but in a fake game, terrible. I was buying everything 😉

Tuesday

Breakfast Burritos with Eggs, Bacon, Potatoes, Cheese, Avocado and Homemade Salsa Inside.

Tuesday was a BIG CLIENT DAY. I woke up, had breakfast, and got straight to work. Breakfast was the last of our Sunday breakfast burrito leftovers. Inside: eggs, bacon, potatoes, cheese, avocado and homemade salsa. Mmm!

Quick and Easy At-Home Lunch | Tuna Sandwich on Sourdough

Lunch was a quick half tuna sandwich (toasted) before I got back to work.

Plain Bagel Panini with Grilled Turkey, Mozzarella, Pesto, Tomato, and Avocado.

Dinner was so random. Sort-of planned, sort-of just whatever we had in the fridge. I took a plain bagel and made a panini with grilled turkey, mozzarella, pesto, tomato, and avocado. This did the trick!

My Winter go-to Drink | Hot Chocolate with Whipped Topping

After dinner I made hot cocoa and totally decompressed from the day. I watched a dorky movie on Netflix (Christian Mingle) and cuddled with Abby.

Wednesday

Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough. Easy, Satisfying, Delicious Breakfast!

Wednesday was another busy client day. I woke up, had quiet time, breakfast, went to the gym, and then got to work. Breakfast was two eggs scrambled on a piece of sourdough. Easy, satisfying, delicious!

Quick and Easy Lunch | Tuna Sandwich with Fritos on the side.

Lunch was another half tuna sandwich, this time with Fritos on the side.

Rice, Chicken, and Broccoli with Tamara and sriracha

Dinner was rice, chicken, and broccoli with Tamara and sriracha. The only thing that could have made this better would have been avocado!

These bowls are one of my favorite simple dinners to make during the week. Marco and I super enjoyed this dinner and then watched Catastrophe on Amazon Prime. Anyone else watch this show? Cracks me up!

I hope you enjoyed this daily eats post! More next week? Let me know in the comments!

Love, Paige

Would you still order a “venti” coffee if you knew you had to do this?

Would you still order a "venti" coffee if you knew you had to do this? Paige Schmidt shares a revelation about savoring and enjoying food.
It’s been so fun to share daily eats again with you recently. If you missed them from last week and daily eats are your jam, here’s a quick link to access them. I’ve so been enjoying eating at our new table and feel happy every time I take a photo there. It’s made eating feel so special. Speaking of making...

Daily Eats and the First Snowfall of Winter

Instapot Chili Recipe. This recipe is for those of you who like a heavy, smoked, flavorful dish. It tastes even better as leftovers with wine.
Heeeeey you. I’m happy this morning. It’s the first snow we’ve gotten this winter in Reno. Well, technically winter isn’t for another 10 days or so, but it sure does feel like it around here! I’ve never lived anywhere it’s snowed before so this is very exciting. Ha! I’m here with more daily eats this week. Are you proud? I’ve been remembering...
