WIAW: Not meal planning

This is what happens when I don't plan my meals:

I buy coconut flour and make crepes/pancakes with 2 egg whites and 1 egg + flax milk. Then I proceed to dump whatever I have in the fridge on top: berries, Cool Whip, and applesauce.

I needed food ASAP and aesthetics weren't a big concern.

I'm feeling under the weather still - mostly my throat - and all the yoga and bodyweight training has made my wrists tender. Enter cardio day.
  • Should I go to the gym? No classes close by.  
  • Should I run? Gah, I hate running.  
  • Maybe the studio has a class? Cancelled?
Okay, let's break out a TurboKick DVD. I did pay $100+ for 11 DVDs and have only opened 4.
I ripped open TurboKick Best of Volume 6, which ended up being a little longer than usual. I wasn't jumping too high but still got down low.

Then I finished Fitnessista's 12 Days of Fitness, an easy little thing to do just for fun and to say I did it.

I still have a few days of break and I'm totally not capitalizing on it. Instead, I went out for a little while. Gorgeous day here in Southern California. Strange but still cold.

I came home with the most logical combo: apple cider vinegar and the best darn gelato ever.

Nothing like a little midday sugar, apple cider vinegar in my water, and apples. Lunch?

Okay, not quite. Real lunch was turkey, hummus, and lettuce wrapped in a low carb, high fiber tortilla.

Dinner was another roll: shrimp and cauliflower with hummus in nori rolls and some coconutty sweet potatoes.

Oops, forgot the rolls. I was getting too hungry.

What's your go to meal when you haven't planned anything?


  1. Great post! That gelato looks amazing :)

  2. Roasted veggies (eggplant, sweet potato and squash) and maybe some cubed TJ tofu. I'm quite exciting. Not ;)

    1. I do a lot of sweet potato but not very much eggplant. I'll have to give it a shot.

  3. When I haven't planned anything I'll usually resort to cereal or greek yogurt. I need to think of some better back-ups! The shrimp/cauliflower/hummus/nori sounds so intriguing...
