Recent Eats: Breakfast and Lunch

I have allllllll of the recent eats for you. So many that this has turned into a two-part post with breakfast and lunch as part one and dinner and dessert as part two. I’m taking you all the way back to my recent vacation in Florida with Finn, as well as my trip Tennessee for teacher training weekend. And of course I have plenty of meals from my own kitchen in Charlotte.


Taos bakes granola

FAGE greek yogurt cup topped with bananas, raspberries, peanut butter, dried cranberries and this Taos Bakes granola that I found at Publix in Florida. It was my first time trying this brand and I would recommend it to you guys and buy it again myself.

The ingredients are solid:

Gluten Free Oats, Organic Maple Syrup, Pecans, Almonds, Organic Dark Brown Sugar, Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Oil, Butter (Cream, Natural Flavors), Organic Chia Seeds, Sea Salt, Organic Madagascar Vanilla Extract

And there’s only 5g sugar in a serving so it’s not a sugar bomb.

English muffin and scrambled eggs

Toasted multigrain English muffin with butter, cream cheese and cottage cheese scrambled eggs. I love the combination of scrambled eggs on toast, bagel or an English muffin with cream cheese!

Daves killer cinnamon raisin bagel

Half of a toasted, buttered Dave’s Killer Bread cinnamon raisin bagel, grapes and cottage cheese scrambled eggs cooked in butter.

And I’m still drinking a ton of smoothies!


We’re going to kick off lunch with wraps three ways! I picked up a package of Toufayan sun-dried tomato wraps while I was in Florida in an effort to shake-up my lunch routine a little bit.

toufayan sun-dried tomato wrap

Wrap one: hummus, turkey, avocado, tomatoes, cheese and arugula dressed in olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt. Cherries on the side.

ham and turkey wrap

Wrap two: turkey, ham, cheese, mayo, arugula, tomatoes and avocado. Cherries and a plum on the side.

scrambled egg and avocado wrap

Wrap three: scrambled eggs, cheese, avocado, tomatoes and sautéed spinach in it and I dipped it in an avocado tomatillo salsa.

jersey mikes Charlotte Douglas

Jersey Mike’s turkey sub for lunch on a plane ride. It took almost 30 minutes to get this sandwich at the airport because the lines were so long in the food court! Reminded me why I like to pack my lunch if possible. 🙂

packed lunch on airplane

Speaking of a packed airplane lunch…I ham on honey wheat with avocado, cheese and sweet pickles. I always pack my sandwiches in Tupperware so they don’t get smushed in my backpack.

hame and turkey sandwich

Here’s a turkey and ham version of the sandwich I packed in the previous picture. Both of the sandwiches have this Heinz Mayomust on them. I found it in my grandmother’s fridge one day and I’ve kinda been hooked ever since. The ingredients are stellar but oh well. The only place that I’ve found this is at Wal-Mart.

egg salad sandwich

Egg salad sandwich with farmers market tomatoes on toasted Dave’s Killer Good Seed. Kettle chips and grapes on the side. I had two dozen fresh eggs from the famers market and decided to boil a few to have on hand. This was around lunchtime and I was trying to figure out what to eat. The idea of egg salad struck me and it was so good – especially with the warm eggs. I just mixed chopped/mashed medium boiled eggs with mayo, salt and pepper. Simple and delicious.

kitchen sink salad

Salad bowl with mixed greens, carrots, red peppers, avocado, hearts of palm, tomatoes, feta, chickpeas, beets, turkey, pepitas, dried cranberries and a mix of sesame and poppyseed dressing. There was a lot going on here but in the best way possible!

salad with couscous and edamame

Mixed greens, leftover couscous, edamame, beets, tomatoes, pepitas, avocado, dried cranberries, feta and Trader Joe’s sesame dressing.

sandwich on homemade sourdough

One last ham sandwich on freshly baked sourdough bread. There is no sandwich better than the one I make on the day that I bake my sourdough. It’s so soft, crust and delicious! I’ve been buying lately because Finn likes it and will eat it.
