Oooh, it's time for another super fun and fabulous installment of What I Ate Wednesday! Yay!
Let's get it started in here.
Breakfast Part 1: Toast
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Half a piece of toast with peanut butter (or jelly...or both) is the best pre-workout snack for me. I ate this ultra photogenic half piece of toast before 5 a.m. boot camp. Is my flip flop tan line showing?
Breakfast Part 2: Protein Shake
Another photographic masterpiece, y'all. Can't stop, won't stop. This shake was actually pretty stellar. It was a peanut butter, banana, honey oat shake.
Here's how I made it:
I drizzled honey all around my glass, then combined..
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- handful of frozen peach slices
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 2 tbsp oats
- sprinkle of cinnamon
Blended it all up and topped it with some fat free whipped cream. Yum!
Also, coffee was consumed.
Morning Snack: Cukes & Hummus
If you have ever read another WIAW post from me, you are probably like, "Ok, I get it. You like hummus." Ha. I do, indeed, enjoy the hummus. I enjoyed it today with some cucumber slices.
Lunch: Greek Sampler
Oh, I am such a bad little blogger today. I almost forgot completely to snap a picture of my lunch. Luckily I remembered right as things were about to wrap up. I shared this sampler platter with my sweet friend that included baba ganoush, tabouli, stuffed grape leaves, and of course hummus! We had a small order of lamb meat on the side as well.
Afternoon Snack: Granola
I picked up this granola at Target this week and it was quite yummy. I ate it out of the bag, but it would be great in yogurt or milk.
Dinner: Pumpkin Alfredo Tortellini & Spinach
I am going to have to make this recipe again soon, because it did not turn out too pretty in the pictures. Also, because it is yummy and I want to face plant into it. Hmm, that's a weird thing to say, no?
Whatever. Here's how I made it.
Pumpkin Alfredo Tortellini
1 9 oz package of refrigerated cheese tortellini
2 tbsp cream cheese (I used Tofutti brand)
2 tbsp goat cheese
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1-2 tbsp grated parmesan
salt & pepper
Cook your tortellini per package instructions and sautee some garlic in olive oil in a separate pan. If you don't want to do fresh garlic, just use a sprinkle of garlic powder. Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds to make it "stirable." Drain pasta and top with sauce.
I served mine over some fresh spinach that I sauteed in garlic and olive oil.
I also had some vanilla frozen yogurt later on, but slacked on my picture taking.
K, hopefully I'll be back on Friday with some delicious soup. Have a great day, all!
