Eats From the Week and Adding Calories

I missed out on WIAW this week. It’s been a busy week with many late evenings out of the house. But there’s been some good eats, so I’m using this Friday to recap some of the goodness that’s been keeping my belly happy. I’ve been adding extra calories, since I, you know, officially made that a thing and all.  I can’t believe how well its going, to be honest with you. I feel like a turtle without a shell in a briar patch. But I am actually liking this briar patch. More on that at the end. For now, some of my eats of the week.

 

Breakfasts:

Cereal and baking. I don’t think I remember how to make breakfast anymore guys….

Incase you are wondering, no I do not spend money on all this (glorious) baking I always seem to have. Believe me, I would NOT be having all these pieces of goodness if I had to buy them. Dan is always bringing me treats from the cafe he works at – at a rate that even I can’t keep up with!! So I always have a stash going at home that I take from.

When I’m not heading to a cafe, I seem to be in a cereal phase. The massive bag of Enviro Kids Panda Peanut Butter Puffs (how old am I?) I got on sale ($10 down to $4 whaaaaat!?) is helping with that. 

 Panda Puffs + Chocolate Love Grown O’s + banana + blueberries/strawberries + 2 big blobs of peanut butter + silk coconut milk + cinnamon 

As you can see, I learned from my experiment last week that a bowl of cereal on its own does NOT satisfy me, so between that lesson and my current goals, I throw on two tablespoons of peanut butter. Peanut butter on cereal is weird. It doesn’t exactly spread around. But if you keep some on your spoon at all times you get the goodness in every bite. Works for me. 

Pumpkin scone + double sided peanut butter + unpictured pear

Dan found me another sourdough cinnamon bun. Bless his soul. I can’t believe how much you can actually TASTE the sourdough in this baby. Its not like a “oh hey we made a “sourdough cinnamon bun” **cough cough with 90% white flour and a few tablespoons of what we think is sourdough cough cough.* No, these babies are made completely with SOUR-DOUGH. 

There’s been a lot of sales on berries too, so I always accompany my baking with some juicy berries.  The perfect bit of sweetness to balance out the….sweetness.  

Sourdough cinnamon bun + berries + coffee out

And when I can’t decide between a yogurt bowl or cereal bowl…

adding calories

Coconut greek yogurt + banana + peanut butter + side of panda puffs + coconut milk + cinnamon

Lunches:

Sandwiches!? Me? My goodness. Who woulda thunk!? 

I’m still going strong on the veggie meats. I know, its weird. But I’m still going strong on bread and cheese, too. If that makes me any less weird.

adding calories

Veggie balogna + mayo + ketup and dijon + monteray jack + tomato

In fact, another “strategy” I’ve been using to get in more calories (and relinquish any underlying forms of control while I’m at it), is instead of using pre sliced cheese slices, which is what I usually do, I’ve been cutting my cheese from a regular block. God that sounds so juvenile. I don’t know how to cut thin, and I want my cheese to cover my bread. So, this basically means… more cheese. But I don’t know how much more and I don’t try to figure it out. Also, more mayo. The more mayo, the better it tastes, let’s be real. 

adding calories

Chocolate milk

Oh chocolate milk. Chocolate milk is a pretty special thing for me. I only ever buy it for myself when I’m in a good place. And every time it feels… crazy. I know it is such a small thing… but it provokes a lot of feels. Before this week it had probably been a year since I had one last. There’s a place beside my theatre that sells these for one dollar, so I’ve been picking them up to accompany my sandwiches. The perfect combo of carbs and protein, so I hear. 

adding calories

Onion rings + miso gravy + superfood salad

I went out for lunch with my friend/colleague one day this week, to none other than my (our) favorite restaurant, Fresh. I got my beloved “healthy” (greasy deep fried) onion rings and miso gravy (the ones my own are based off of) and the superfood salad. Perfect balance. Total. Yum. 

Dinners 

Remember my new find? Well good thing I stocked up because I’ve been chowing down on these jamaican sweet pototoes like the candy that they are. I also have a stash of really good quality organic-farmers-market-farm-to-table chicken and turkey sausages in my freezer, so have been going through them more quickly than I’d like. I’ve been having this super simple meal most days this week and am not sick of it. Made even more simple by my favorite seasoning: butter and salt. I know I could go fancier and add some different spices into the mix, but honestly? I just can’t get enough of the butter and salt combo. It’s my absolutely favorite. 

Sausages will never photograph nicely. Never. 

adding calories

Organic turkey sausage + Jamaican sweet potato + steamed broccoli + butter + salt 

When I’m feeling more adventurous, I’ve been finishing off my Thai Noodle Soup from Kat’s recipe. I made it rather spicy so my sinuses are feeling nice and detoxed. 

adding calories

Thai Noodle Soup with rice noodles and tofu

Desserts and snacks:

Cookies. 

I seemed to have been gifted a lot of cookies lately (some I deserved, some seemed to have just curiously found their way into my freezer….), so I’ve been tackling that stash at a pretty steady rate. Cookies always taste better when you didn’t make them yourself. Probably because they aren’t #glutenfreeveganpaleosugarfree or made with stevia. 

adding calories

Chocolate Chip + Oatmeal/banana/chocolate chip cookies

So with this adding of calories and my weight lifting plan, I do want to try and make my bedtime “snacks” a little higher quality on the nutrition side  – specifically to add in some protein before sleeping for recovery purposes. So far yogurt has been the main go-to, but I’d welcome other suggestions for delicious evening snacks that have some useful nutrients in them. 

adding calories

Greek yogurt + blueberries + candied ginger + chocolate chunks 


 Oatmeal cookies + chocolate peanut butter + greek yogurt

In fact, I’d like to think about adding in more nutritious snacks and foods, in general, as I move forward. I definitely tend to go to the sugary things – as these were the things I restricted the most at my worst. And I’m totally okay with that. I can see I didn’t eat the “healthiest” this week, by which I just mean I had quite a bit of sugar each day and could have had more protein. But I’m low on groceries and desiring convenience, so again –  totally okay. Going forward, however, I would like to think of more nutritient rich foods to stock up on to really give my body good things to recover on. 

I don’t, however, have a problem getting in my fruit. Always fruit. A pear a night it how it seems to go. 

Pear + cinnamon 

So hows it all feeling? Well….I feel a little crazy right now.

I’ve tacked on about 3-400 calories to my average daily eats, and have easily made this increase each day. I don’t want to calorie count, and I hate that I just “know” this, but actually right now it is feeling okay to know (or rather “estimate,” because how can we ever actually “know”). It isn’t freaking me out. I know this isn’t enough to see any sort of progress yet, so bare with me. But for one week?  That’s a darn good increase for me and my history of addition rates. And the fact that I’m feeling ready to keep adding? Werrr.

Physically I am feeling a weird surge of energy. Already, I am really hungry. Especially in the evening, though this isn’t too new. And I have quite a bit of energy surging through me. Like, literally, I can feel it in my body. I can only attribute this to the weight lifting and extra food?? It seems my metabolism is already speeding up? In the past when I have increased calories, I always remember feeling tired and sluggish… so this is quite new. 

Mentally, again… feeling a bit crazy. I guess it just feels weird that all of a sudden this all just immediately felt good. Necessary. Dare I say, priority. It was like over night my “minimum” just changed and there hasn’t been any sort of guilt or self-hatred because of it. What’s going on? I don’t know!! I’ve never felt this motivated and… okay…. with the prospect of adding more food before. 

Now let’s all do the knock on wood dance. Mmk? I’m playing Hanson’s Mmmbop. What are you playing?

    Dried fruit, nuts, nut butter with fruit or crackers or even sweet potatoes, warm milk (nondairy option) with hot chocolate mix or protein powder, popcorn, cereal (with milk/yogurt), and chocolate are all great snack options! Just a few ideas, mix and match as you please!

    I think it’s great that you’re focusing on the nutrition aspect of your increase but I would recommend being wary of developing any orthorexic tendencies and/or labeling food as “good” or “bad”. All food is food!

    Also, it’s so wonderful that you get free baked goods! 🙂 But just a reminder that it would also be acceptable if you bought them for yourself. You’re worth it, and food is not a waste of money!

    I have experienced both fatigue and energy when increasing calories, and I can definitely relate to the increase in hunger! (PTW…) At times I’ve also actually lost weight after increasing calories, so I end up increasing them even more!

    In terms of spices/seasonings, it depends on the food, but I LOVE cinnamon for sweet things and turmeric, ginger, fennel seeds, and soy sauce for savory things. Hot sauce is good too!

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Thank you, Bess! Yes, I am very aware of orthorexia and when/if I feel its pull coming in. I am in no means feeling guilty about the cookies or sweets and know they will continue on, I just want my body and muscles to gain as much strength as they can and know that they will do this the best with high quality foods. So I’ll keep the cookies but ADD some more good solid protein and other whole foods etc to go with them. I’m okay with having both as long as I know my body is being fed what it needs to repair. Nuts and cereal are really smart. I can see myself enjoying more of these.
      And thankkyyouuu for the “buying baking” comment/reminder. Its true. I should go out and buy these things even if Dan has stocked me up.

  2. chasetheredgrape | 10th Mar 17

    Hell yeah for all the motivation girl! I am loving reading this!
    Also that meal with sweet pots, sausage and veggies = the sort of thing I would be fueling myself with! Good choice!
    My pre bed snack is always cereal. Have you tried going for oats? You can stir greek yog into it for an extra protein hit, so comforting and creamy!
    And whhhyyyyy another pic of the sourdough cinnamon roll…. It’s killing me! 😛

    • chasetheredgrape | 10th Mar 17

      Yaaaas! My comment worked! 😀

      • Cora | 10th Mar 17

        YAAASS!! They fixed it!

        Also – oats… that’s a really good idea. I’d have to make some in advance and keep it in the fridge for the week so I could just grab it. My patience to make anything in the evening has seemed to have vanished.

  3. Susie @ Suzlyfe | 10th Mar 17

    You are doing awesome. SO AWESOME. I loved seeing everything (HELLO THAT PUMPKIN SCONE) but also your mindset as you are adding on the cals. Remember–to do what you’ve not done before, you have to do something you’ve never done! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND MY LOVE

      If I were a runner… I would say I feel like I’m starting out on a marathon and feel the pull to look and go back to the start but that I keep telling myself to NOT LOOK BACK JUST KEEP GOING.

  4. Sarah @ Bucket List Tummy | 10th Mar 17

    I am drooling over all your eats! And a sourdough cinnamon bun? WHAT – YES PLEASE. I love adding cereal to yogurt for some good old crunch. Also, so many things in here that speak to your growth and are wonderful to read. Yogurt with banana and cocoa powder before bed is my go to snack!
    Sarah @ Bucket List Tummy recently posted…Friday Rambles and Favorites #15My Profile

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Oh I like that cocoa powder yogurt idea. I’d still get my chocolate craving in! Maybe throw in some cookie crumbles too.

  5. Jamie@TheMomGene | 10th Mar 17

    This is going to sound crazy, but when I was in my first trimester with the twins, I ate ALL THE TIME and I had more energy than ever (even though I was totally hormonal). I was Pacman and every food was fair game. And it’s breakfast time here and now all I want is a sourdough cinnamon roll (never had one). It sounds glorious. My favorite bedtime snacks are peanut butter on banana topped with raisins. I used to make this when I was little. It was called “Ants on a log”. I also like trail mix (though I can eat a whole bag if there’s a really good show on Netflix). I love how open and brave you’re being! It’s like watching you sky dive. Figuratively of course, because I would probably throw up if I had to watch someone jump out of a plane.

      That time sounds awesome!!! Aha. Or at least the packman eating part would make up for the less desirable parts?
      Ants on a log! Haven’t had that in years. We used to make it on celery. I like the banana idea better.
      Lol. Maybe one day you and your kids will go sky diving together. I can see it 🙂

  6. Heather @ Polyglot Jot | 10th Mar 17

    Yum!! I have obviously also upped my calories lately and have been eating loads more carbs and I actually love the way I feel with more carbs in me!
    I havent done the peanut butter on cereal thing…I bet using PB powder on cereal would be delicious if you wanted it to kind of dissolve in the cereal.
    Peanut butter crackers, an apple and peanut butter, toast and jam or toast with hummus are some of my favorite “I’m starving and it’s 10pm” snacks!

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Me too Heather. Carbs work really well in me. At least, I definitely notice when I don’t get enough. Aka: grumpy. I do like mixing pb powder into milks or yogurt and have definitely had it in cereal. Its yummy!
      Thanks for the “10 pm” suggestions – exactly what I was looking for.

  7. Carrie this fit chick | 10th Mar 17

    You’ve had such delicious eats this week! Hope you are proud of yourself- what you’re doing is tough stuff. I promise there is a light at the end of the tunnel, girl. I love cumin and tumeric right now for seasonings!
    Carrie this fit chick recently posted…Friday Favorites!My Profile

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Thanks, Carrie. I am actually pretty proud of myself, at least so far. I hope I can continue pushing forward. I feel like I’m on a bit of a tight rope where things are going fine but I’m holding on cautiously. I’m trying to put turmeric in everything right now!

  8. Emily Swanson | 10th Mar 17

    This is one of my very favorite topics; I’ve actually been trying to do the same thing too. Technically I am weight restored, but I would like to test my body and eat more. It’s really teaching me to trust God more with my hunger signals; it’s been tough but awesome at the same time. I’m trying to eat one big mug of cereal with nut butter/maybe even chocolate/dried fruit (which usually has more calories but less water so it’s less filling but more calorie dense.) And I love having some baked goodies with butter or nut butter to bump up the calories. I’m glad you’re free around the sugary things, because I think it’s so important to just not over think those yummy delicious baked goods; Dan is such a sweet guy!

      Good for you Em. That is so admirable… to continue to challenge yourself to ensure you health and mind are staying strong. I’m going strong on the “add peanut butter to all the baked goods” right now. I just had four banana toffee store bought cookies and spread the chocolate peanut butter YOU gave me on each of them. Wow. It was so. good.
      I’m so happy to not be over thinking the baking. Sure they are sugary but dang they are my favorite and I’m not going to give that up for anything.

  9. Casey the College Celiac | 10th Mar 17

    Girl, these eats look so freakin’ delish! I’m soooo glad your eating is going well and you are finding some new, delicious ways to add a little extra. I always love snacking on homemade granola, banana bread, trail mix, sunbutter or rice cakes with sunbutter and fruit at night 🙂

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Thanks, Casey. I’m really glad too. I know it won’t last and I may start to want to go backward, so I just HAVE to keep pushing forward and not start thinking too much about it. Ya know? Love your suggestions. I just made some homemade sunbutter last week so want to dig into that. Its time I do some good baking again, too.
      How are you doing?

  10. Gail | 10th Mar 17

    A handful of roasted pumpkin seeds will bump up your magnesium and calories! Those little things are so good and calorie dense.

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      I should find more ways to throw those babies in places. Turn me into a pumpkin!!

  11. Joyce @ The Hungry Caterpillar | 10th Mar 17

    I love that you’re feeling good adding in those calories and getting an extra surge of energy rather than feeling sluggish and tired! I take it you’re enjoying your weights too? Weights always feel super good to me, like a really deep massage. 🙂 I’ve added one lifting class to my weekly routine, as well.
    Can you get Greek Gods honey-flavored Greek yogurt in Toronto? If you can, you must. It’s to die for–I used to often eat it for my bedtime dessert before I realized honey was such an IBS trigger for me. If you can’t buy it there, I will find a way to get it to you!

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      The energy is weird. Don’t get me wrong I’d much rather feel extra energy than that gross sluggishness, but its been a bit anxiety producing. My body feels like its on caffeine (when I haven’t been) so its a little hard to feel…emotions? I think it has quite a bit to do with the weights. My muscles are feeling rather… excited, maybe? I am enjoying it though. Its feeling controlled and strong.
      So I just looked up the Greek Gods brand and now know what you are talking about. I’m sure I’ve seen it somewhere, so I am now officially on a hunt!! Finding good yogurt is a priority this weekend.

  12. Lana | 10th Mar 17

    Hi Cora, I’ve been reading quietly for a while now..cheering you along. I also love in Toronto..so love when you mention familiar products and places. 🙂
    Some ideas to enrich your food: butter on all your bread and baked goods. Use whole dairy milk with cereal and everything else where you normally use milk. Add butter to your grains..butter and buckwheat..yum! Prepare stews/soups with meat..buy the cheaper cuts and cook in slow cooker..don’t trim fat. Same with chicken..use the whole thing with skin and bones. Try sardine salad instead of tuna! Night time snack ideas? Ice cream! Chocolate salami…(great recipe on pretty.simple.sweet blog). Rice pudding with lots of cream…
    Don’t get overwhelmed! I’ve been at a normal weight for a long time now..but only recently got comfortable with eating butter and beef…it’s a slow process..but as long as we always look forward and take little steps we’ll get there! 🙂

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Lana! Wow, thank you! I’m so glad you decided to comment. Butter – check. Its been going strong on everything and I’m SO happy with this one (I remember wishing that I could put butter on my scones… and now I do it without thinking). Never tried cooking buckwheat, let alone with butter. Definitely want to try this. Meat is something I could cook with more, and not the lean ones. I know there can be less expensive cuts so I can’t let money be the deciding factor.
      Um…. chocolate salami!? And now I go to find out what this is.
      Thanks again Lana. This was wonderful motivation.

  13. Ellie Pell | 10th Mar 17

    I totally respect you decision to have more nutrient dense calories as desserts and snacks. That makes sense and will make your body and muscles feel better and recover quicker after working out. Cookies are fine sometimes too of course!
    My favorite way to have a “healthier” dessert is a granola bar (like a Clifbar or Larabar) and top it with a very tick helping of a fun nut butter. I save some specialty nut butters that costed more or are more sweet and use them for desserts. I don’t have an oven, so this granola bar and nut butter trick really works well for me 🙂
    Ellie Pell recently posted…Your Life Does NOT Need a DisclaimerMy Profile

    • Cora | 10th Mar 17

      Oh the cookies will be kept. I just want to add things like yogurt and nut butters – TO my cookies – to know I am getting in my sweets AND good nutrition. Ultimately I want my body to heal, and know it will do this best with good solid whole foods. But don’t worry, I don’t feel guilty about the sweets and they are definitely not going anywhere. I need to find myself some super splurgy yogurt and nut butter flavors.

  14. danielle | 11th Mar 17

    yummmm i love greek yogurt with candied ginger. i tend to OD on candied ginger though quickly forgetting that a little goes a long way…
    in the evening i love make my fatty mc fat slurry of nut butter, coconut butter, some sort of honey. i eat this fatty sweet concoction with some sort of dessert like a panettone or schtollen cake from TJ’s. i love the healthy fats and unctuous feeling, it’s very satisfying and a small bowl is a lot. anyhow, this little nightly treat keeps my belly happy. definitely calorie dense but i like the nutrition in there: healthy fats and honey, yes please.
    when i was a teenager and rebelled against eating the first time, i put on lbs easily by just eating ketchup and jam. that sounds insane but it’s true. go figure. eating real food is so much more fun!!!!

      OD on candied ginger? Is that possible? I could happily test out this possibility.
      I’m loving your fatty mc fat slurry. Do you just stir all three things together? Anything that keeps your belly happy is a keeper. Reminds me that I need to add more honey to things.

  15. Marti @fitwithheart | 11th Mar 17

      That is definitely one of my favorite snacks! Though I could do with more nut butter maybe. I know you love japanese sweet potatoes. I think you are the reason I ever heard of them in the first place!

  17. Cindy | 12th Mar 17

    Your eats this week look SCRUMPTIOUS! My favourite pre-bed snack is yogurt with a warm muffin, nut butter, and granola. It doesn’t get more comforting than that for me! Sweet potatoes are always delicious and yours look amazing with the salt+butter combination.
    You are so lucky to get all those baked goods! Which bakery does Dan work at? Now that I’m in Toronto I’ve got to stop by for a visit and for some of those drool worthy scones.

      Toris in the beaches (and soon to have a second location near the distillery district in the new canary district). Bunners bakery in Kensington Market or the Junction. Baker and Scone near Christie and St. Clair. Or Bloomers at Bloor and Ossington. Those are my FAVORITES.

  20. Kristy from Southern In Law | 13th Mar 17

    All of your eats look SO GOOD!

    Hmm. Evening snack suggestions. What about like a slice of zucchini bread or a homemade baked good with nut butter or like a raw slice? We’ve been loving my chocolate and peanut butter slice for dessert!

  21. Ellen @ My Uncommon Everyday | 14th Mar 17

    So behind on blogs and comments and all that, but I’m so so so proud of you. I can also relate. It’s like once I decided I was eating more, my body was on board faster than I expected. Now, my “counting” is much looser, but I pretty easily hit the minimums I set for myself anyway. Plus, when I don’t count as much, it feels more okay to eat well above my minimums. And my evening snacks are usual Greek yogurt + fruit + nut butter + sweet potato, and then usually chocolate and whatever else I feel like munching on. Sometimes my evening snacks feel like ages-long feeding sessions…
    Oh, and I had the most AMAZING scone today and thought of you because I always see your baked goods 🙂

    I was looking for your WIAW last week! I hate that I’ve been trained to “know” how many calories are in certain things too. I wish my brain could just dump all this useless information out ?

    Sour dough is too good. I can’t even imagine what it would be like in cinnamon bun form. Yogurt is definitely one of my go-to evening snacks too. Love its versatility! You could also try incorporating more nut butters with it too! Or if you’re a fan of protein bars, those are another faves of mine.

    Some of my favorite seasonings include: cinnamon (duh!), za’atar and cayenne!

    I don’t think you can ever really go wrong with bread and cheese. My usual snack is an apple or banana covered in peanut butter and topped with chocolate chips. Lately though, it’s been girl scout cookies. I don’t hate it.
