Wow, it's Wednesday already! You know what that means ;)
What I Ate Wednesday!!! I know you are excited.
This challenge comes from Peas and Crayons blog.
Breakfast Part #1: PBJ Wasa & Espresso Beans
I didn't feel like eating much before 5 a.m. bootcamp this morning, so I smeared some reduced fat peanut butter & fruit with fiber grape jelly on a Wasa cracker. I also ate 3 chocolate covered espresso beans, because I figured it couldn't hurt to have some caffeine in me.
Breakfast Part #2: Green Smoothie, Coffee
This morning totally flew by and before I knew it, it was time to rush out the door. So I made a quick smoothie and coffee to go (check my new french press, ya'll). Smoothie contained: 3 handfuls of fresh spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, some random strawberries, pineapples and grapes that I had thrown in the freezer a while back, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder and some almond milk. It tasted like health. Well, not really. It tasted like a vanilla milkshake.
Mid Morning Snack: Cereal & Fruit
Man, I was ready for this snack today. I had 1/2 cup of Fiber Plus caramel crunch cereal and some fruit leftover from my Edible Arrangement:
So fresh and lovely :)
Gosh, could you tell I was hungry? I started to dig in and then realized I forgot to snap a picture! I had their Mediterranean Veggie sandwich on the whole grain loaf and a pickle. I put the apple in my purse for later.
FYI-that Splenda was for my giant, unsweetened tea.Here's what the inside of the sandwich looks like~yum!
Then back to the office for lots of kisses. Ok, just 2 Hershey's coconut creme kisses:
Afternoon Snack: Carrots & Hummus
Hummus returns! Well, this is actually the hummus I was eating 2 weeks ago. Does hummus go bad? Hm, it still tastes good, so whatever. I just dipped a few baby carrots in there to get me through 'til dinner.
Dinner: Giant Sweet Potato, Black Bean Salad
On my menu, I had planned to make black bean, sweet potato burritos, but wanted to amp up the veggies so I made it a giant salad & added some goat cheese & roasted veggies.
Veggie challenge: dominated.
Dessert: Ben & Jerry's Greek Yogurt
Despite how expensive this stuff is, I had to try it. I got the blueberry graham flavor and thought it tasted pretty good. If they wanted to make it better, they should lower the fat/calories and add more graham cracker swirl, because it is incredible. I probably won't buy it again, but it was good to give it a try.
If you missed my previous WIAW posts, here they are:
If you have a blog (or even if you don't), I'd suggest taking pictures of your food. It definitely keeps you in check (more so than just writing it down).
Oh, guess what?
I posted another Hungry Monster original recipe at Endless Simmer this week.
Need a teaser?
