I bought that particular jar of wheat germ on Sunday and ate all that you see is missing from the above picture straight from the jar with a spoon. I’m special.
I figured it was time to use the germ in an actual recipe! After taking Sadie on a short walk in the rain (she toughed it in her rain coat), I came home and got to work in the kitchen.
Since Ryan had to work late, I figured I would make a meal I know he loves… which is basically anything involving chicken.
I took two large chicken breasts and dredged them in a scrambled raw egg before rolling them in a mixture of 1/4 cup wheat germ and 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs.
I then baked the chicken in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. While the chicken was baking, I roasted broccoli and cauliflower in the oven as well to enjoy on the side. (Ah! I still owe you guys a video on how to roast veggies! I’ll get on that ASAP!)
After snapping this picture, I grabbed some BBQ sauce to use as dip for the chicken because I wanted a little extra flavah!
And then, about 30 minutes after dinner, my sweet tooth started kickin’.
I shut it up with a smoothie bowl!
In the mix:
- 1 c. frozen strawberries
- 1 c. almond milk
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 2 pinches xanthan gum
- 2 handfuls fresh spinach
Don’t be surprised if you see this bad boy resurface in the morning.
Until then, I’m off to watch Cupcake Wars and dream about Sunday when Lent officially ends and I can eat my bodyweight in sweets.
I already exchanged many texts with my sister today about what flavor I want my birthday cake to be! I’m celebrating my birthday (which is actually next Wednesday) with my family on Sunday night and have requested an ice cream cake. Cake + ice cream + icing… throw some cookies and brownies in there and I’ll knock out nearly every dessert I’ve missed during the Lenten season in one swoop!
