WIAW: Attack of the Chocolate Monster

It's time again for another fantabulous installment ooooofffff....
What I Ate Wednesday!!
Peas and Crayons

Breakfast, Take 1: Rice Cake
Before boot camp this morning, I smeared a caramel rice cake with some dark chocolate peanut butter.  Get the day started right with some chocolate!  You will see this trending as my day goes on.  What can I say?  I needs my chocolate.

Breakfast, Take 2: Shake
My protein shake was the bomb diggity, this morning.  It is a chocolate cherry shake and contains: 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup of frozen cherries, 1 frozen banana and 1 cup of almond milk.  Yum, yum.  Coffee on the side, of course.

Morning Snack: Peach & Bar
What's this?  More chocolate?  It's just one of them days.  I had some peach slices and half of a Zone bar from the day before.

Lunch: Salad
I made a big ole salad for lunch that contained spring mix, leftover chicken, green beans, fat free feta cheese and beets.  I found this thing of beets in the produce department of Walmart and decided to try it.  Very delish.  I topped my salad with fat free Italian dressing.
Then I went on a 2 mile walk and then hopped in the car to get a treat.  The last bit of that sentence makes me sound like a dog.  Hm.
Iced coffee made with Splenda and a splash of soy milk.
Aaaaand, this happened.
More chocolate!!!  Raspberry truffle pop.  The pops are probably the lowest calorie treat they have at, meh.  Not too shabby.

Afternoon Snack: Yogurt & Orange
Ok, I swear this is the last chocolate I ate!  I'm not sure if it counts, but whatever.  This was my last Chobani bite and I enjoyed it thoroughly.  So, most of my chocolate was pretty healthy-fied.  Great way to satisfy that craving (that was seemingly unsatisfy-able--I make up words).

Dinner: Meatball Sandwich
This was not my best dinner.  I didn't get home until late and in no way did I feel like cooking, so I peeked in the freezer.  There were some turkey meatballs in there, so in the microwave they went.  I had some turkey meatballs with reduced fat sharp cheddar on a 100 calorie wheat hot dog bun with some leftover butternut squash mac & cheese and some Brussels sprouts.

That about does it for today.  Hope everyone is having a super fantastic week!

Chocolate raspberry truffle pop? That looks so delicious. I have an evil weakness for those things. Nothing wrong with having an attack of the chocolate monster. I definitely welcome those attacks haha
