If you missed last week's post, here it is: WIAW #1
This challenge comes from Peas and Crayons blog.
Breakfast Part #1: Butterscotch Breakfast Bread
I had a piece of whole wheat butterscotch breakfast bread with a smear of almond butter before 5 a.m. bootcamp (which totally kicked my butt today, by the way). This is a little recipe I came up with last week. It's almost perfect. I think I'll have to share it with you soon! Baby the Cat photo bombed my breakfast pic again this week ;)
Breakfast Part #2: Veggie Omelet, Bacon, Iced Coffee
Gotta get my protein on after all that strength training & cardio. I know this omelet looks messy, but it was quite yummy. I sauteed about a cup (or more) of fresh spinach until in cooked down, threw some diced tomatoes on top, then added a sprinkle shredded Parmesan and 1 egg and 1 egg white. I also had 2 pieces of microwave bacon. Oh, and iced coffee of course. I brewed up some of Dunkin Donuts strawberry shortcake coffee (sounds gross, but makes a great iced coffee) and let it cool, then added ice, Equal and almond milk. Drinking from mason jars is classy, in case you didn't know.
Mid-Morning Snack: Banana
After talking on the banana phone, I peeled and ate this fruit for a snack. Yes, I am crazy for posting this pic on the internet. Take me as I am, ya'll.Oh, and please note that this is the first time in a while I haven't worn work out clothes to the office. Just sayin'.
Lunch: Salad with Veggies & Protein
After running some errands at lunch, I was back at the office to eat my salad. This bowl contains romaine lettuce, matchstick carrots, diced tomato, sliced cucumber and a leftover piece of stuffed chicken (stuffed with cheese wedge, ham and spinach) from last night. No hummus dressing today. I finished the last of the Caesar dressing.
You know how some days you just crave a salad? Today was not that day for me. The salad was good, but I felt sort of eh about it. I did manage to shove all those veggies in my face, despite my ambivalence.
Yes, I had two. Don't judge. I had to keep up my strength for all the paper shuffling ahead of me (note: everyday I'm shuffling).
Dinner: Quinoa, Smoked Salmon, Brussels
Things were kind of crazy busy this afternoon, and I did not have time for a snack. Needless to say, by the time dinner rolled around I was star-ving. A true hungry monster ;) Luckily, dinner came together in about 20 minutes. I cooked some quinoa in the rice cooker, roasted some brussels sprouts, then tossed in some smoked salmon and goat cheese. Super healthy and yummy in my tummy!
Dessert: Giant Frozen Oreo
Ok, not really. It's a chocolate graham cracker with fat free cool whip that I tossed in the freezer about 2 hours before consuming. It seriously tasted like a giant frozen Oreo, though.
Now that I've bombarded you with my day of eating, I thought I'd let you know that I am now a contributing writer at a totally awesome food blog called Endless Simmer.
They will be featuring some of my original recipes each week. Check out my first post here:
Sweet Potato, Butterscotch, Bacon and Goat Cheese Quesadilla (not a typo!).
Also, I fixed the comments on the blog by randomly clicking stuff (that's also how I play video games), so I can now respond to comments! Hooray :)
Have a nice rest of the week!
