It’s all about the food…

Lately I’ve seen an uptick in Instagram followers and I thought I’d take some time to introduce a little bit about myself.

First and foremost, I post in a series of 3. I’m not sure where this wild idea came from, but at the very least makes my instagram profile look interesting. Every 15 (or so) posts are dedicated to running and something running related. I follow this (typically) with 3 posts of meals from the week I just HAVE to share.

Instagram Feed

Instagram is a weird place, and trying to judge what people may or may not like will certainly drive you insane. My running posts get a pretty good response; my food posts not so much. However, fitness starts in the kitchen with Real, Unprocessed, and Whole Foods. And since I love food, I’m always going to post my favorite meals regardless of likes.

One thing I have noticed is that if you make things interactive, people will like and comment on your posts. Which brings me here today, enough rambling, here’s the food.

Buffalo Chicken Chili

This chili was outta this world amazing and sadly was devoured at dinner time, which means no leftovers for me.

Get the complete details HERE.

Avocado Chickpea Pizza

You’ll notice I (and Beyond24Days) post very heavy on the vegetarian/vegan recipes. We like to consider ourselves flexitarian if that’s a thing: most meals are plant-based (around 85-95%) with a peppering of foods that include animal proteins (around 5–15%).

With that in mind, we like the plant-based meals that are dense and packed full of flavor and deliciousness. That’s why this pizza only lasted a few minutes before everyone grabbed a slice (and more).

That’s it, I know it’s a little light this week, but I’ve been running in the morning and in the evenings so food tends to disappear fast! If you’d like to keep up with all our food adventures, consider following Beyond24Days on Instagram and on our Blog!

It’s all about the FOOD!

If you’ve been following me along on Instagram, you’ll notice I post food every-so-often – and so far it’s been absent-mindedly posted without any regard to recipes, etc. That all changes after today, because food and nutrition are so important to me, I figured it’s time we start to share everything.  Well, maybe not everything.

One thing to note, while we are not Vegan, we do make and eat a lot of Vegan meals. This is largely in part of my lactose intolerance – I can’t have any dairy products, so we’ve found it easiest to just go with vegan recipes since most vegetarian dishes include some milk-based products. Also note: We only consume meat twice a week, so we are plant-based around 80% of the time.

First up on the Instagram are these Curried Salmon Cakes. We love our roasted veggies, so it’s only fitting that we pair this up with some roasted cauliflower, and some NearEast brand rice. The salmon was canned, so it tasted more like tuna fish – with a bite! So the list of ingredients and brief write-up, check out: Curried Salmon Cakes

Second on the gram, Korean BBQ Lentils! We love lentils, and we love the taste of this dish, so flavorful, so rich – honestly, I couldn’t get enough. Being primarily plant-based, I can fill up on these meals and not have any sort of weighted or bloated feeling in my belly.  I eat until I’m full, and I find meals with Lentils offer a healthy balance. Naturally, we paired this up with some brown rice, and roasted asparagus (my favorite). Find this recipe here: Korean BBQ Lentils

Last, but not least is this decedent Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato. Let’s pause and just take it all in. Just look at that roasted sweet potato, those fresh berries, the homemade granola and oats with that amazing peanut butter drizzle. This would have made for a super filling breakfast, so we chose to eat it for dinner instead. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my breakfast foods, but this one is so hearty, I can’t imagine eating this for breakfast – it’s a brunch/dinner meal if you ask me. Find the rundown here: Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato

A note about Instagram…

Mild rant, first world problems, spam, and a little bit of insecurity.

Chances are if you follow me on Instagram, you follow the blog (maybe) or you’re a twitter follower and you follow the blog (also a maybe), or maybe you’re just following the blog… I digress either way thank you for the support, please be sure to leave your social media handles so I can return the favor.

Just a note about the “following game” on the Gram:
1. If you follow me, chances are, I follow you – pretty simple.
2. If you unfollow me, chances are, I’ll unfollow you – because I’m a child like that.
3. *If you have thousands of followers and don’t follow many in return; chances are I won’t follow you back.
4. If you block me, honestly, why tho? I’m curious if my running content is that offensive? If so, sorry? I guess?
5. If you are Dreaming Elegance, Bfirst, or Proudfitfam – please stop. Also, be prepared for me to engage with you and question your grammar right spot peep my bio instantly.

*Disclaimer – I have a dear friend whose band is destroying the Instagram scene, I’m okay being in the elite “following” group on their profile. Also, I few of the companies I follow, have returned the favor and follow me back as well (*cough, cough* Mojo Socks).
