Hashtag, WIAW, hayyy.
I’ve been meaning to participate in What I Ate Wednesday since the start of my blog, and as active as I am on Instagram giving you a peak into my daily eats, I am quite terrible at taking pictures of a FULL day of eats. I think it’s probably because I snack so often. Story. of. my. LIFE.
But hey, better late than never. Cheers to today’s edition of What I Ate Wednesday!
My day always starts with a breakfast that is nutrient packed and tasty (and a glass of warm water and lemon) – this day included a breakfast sandwich made using Artizo spelt toast – with avocado + egg & Trader Joe’s hummus + sprouts + cucumber mango salsa from Whole Foods. Do you wake up to the sound of your stomach growling from hunger, or is it just me? Oh, okay.
I actually poached this egg in the microwave – which, I thought I had perfected the technique until this morning. As you can see, total fail. But it was still so delicious.
Mid morning snack was a tupperware of berries and a lemon ginger Kevita. Since berries are not in season around this time of year, I don’t usually pick up a ton unless they are on sale – I can’t wait for summertime again!
Lunch was leftovers from the night before – Trader Joe’s Organic Superfood Pilaf (kale, red quinoa, sweet potatoes, red bell peppers) and roasted garlic & broccoli (that I already ate before the picture..I blame the hangries).
Afternoon snack before my workout was a container of 2% Fage greek yogurt + toasted coconut chips + goji berries + raw pumpkin seeds (aka one of my favorite topping combinations!)
Dinner after my workout (shoulder circuit + 4 mile tempo run) was leftovers (I’m all for them) – spicy roasted sweet potatoes, garlic roasted crispy broccoli, and batch of baked garlic-y shrimp (coming soon to a post near you) with cucumber mango salsa. I also added some sesame ginger dressing from Whole Foods to dip my sweet potatoes in….it is my current obsession! I love the entire line of “no oil added” dressings from Whole Foods – I have not been disappointed by any of them.
Andddddd dessert was a slice of this bad boy (Soaked 6 Grain Banana Bread) I whipped up from the Purely Elizabeth Oatmeal Challenge. Not this slice in particular but you get the picture. I’m having so much fun on the panel of judges – I get to make the eats and then eat them. You guys totally made the most fabulous creations!
And that’s a wrap! Come back next week for another full day of eats. In the meantime, you can always catch me over on my Instagram, @nutritionhappens.
