WIAW is a food blogger trend in which bloggers share what they ate that Wednesday (only usually they are sharing what they ate that Tuesday or Monday so it can be a complete post but the alliteration is nice.) I love seeing a daily glimpse in the life of others but it feel kind of weird putting my meals out there for scrutiny… as a Dietitian I feel like I should be setting example but I also don’t want people to think this is exactly what they should be eating. That being said this was a sub average day as I usually don’t eat salad for lunch (usually it’s leftovers) but I thought this would be a good day to share because the salad is much more beautiful than leftovers and I’m currently obsessed with it… must make again! Everything else is pretty standard… I don’t always have a late night snack but have been craving ice cream type treats lately… this was a healthier take than the Ben and Jerry’s I had last week. Everything in moderation friends! I definitely won’t remember to keep up with picture taking all day on a weekly basis but I’ll try to do a post once a month on my eats. See other bloggers eats on Jen’s blog!
My perfect oatmeal with peanut butter marshmallow protein powder, applesauce, almond butter, and milk mixed in. Paired with a full glass of milk.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post about my overnight oats is that they are the only thing that keeps me full until lunch time, so on these days no morning snack. Basically I drink 1000-2000mL of water in the morning (I have a dehydration issue and an insatiable thirst for water)
Amazing salad: pumpkin seeds, toasted coconut oil and cinnamon garbanzo beans, red pepper, and baked balsamic chicken on a bed of spinach. I added a balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and brown mustard vinaigrette. Perfection.
Usually I like a piece of chocolate or something sweet post lunch also, usually a few dark chocolate chips or a piece of cacao.
Luna bar, eaten 1-2 hours pre-workout for fuel
Pesto Quinoa, Coconut Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts, and Beer Broiled Tilapia
Late night snack:
Strawberry yogurt cups with cinnamon and cacao chips and one homemade almond butter cup
