I got such positive feedback last time I did a What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) post so I wanted to do another one. This is more of What I Ate on Tuesday but hey you get it.
If you have no idea what WIAW is all about visit the blog Peas And Crayons for a full explanation. It’s basically bloggers sharing what they really eat in a day. The purpose of this being to share ideas and inspire healthy eating all over the web.
Let’s get to it!
6:00am: Woke up and hit snooze 893749324 times
6:30am: Jose’s Chocolate Raspberry Coffee (SO GOOD) with less than 1 Tbsp of Silk vanilla almond milk creamer
7:30am: My Green Detox Drink 2.0! I’ve recently been changing up my daily green drink. Now I dissolve 1 Nuun tab into the water to give it some extra flavor and beneficial electrolytes. Then I just do 3 giant handfulls of kale, about a cup of mixed tropical fruit, a giant piece (about thumb size) of fresh ginger then a heaping scoop of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading that it’s best to have a green drink first thing in the morning so your body can absorb the most nutrients then wait about 30mins to eat food. Who knows if that’s true but it has been giving me extra energy.
I force Bryce to drink a green drink daily.
8:30am: Speeding off to work (late as usual). I can’t ever handle making breakfast in the morning so I have to keep it simple with la piece of toast and peanut butter or I have to meal prep and make something like my Cranberry Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies which I had this morning!
9:15am: Got to work and filled up my giant 40oz Hydro Flask with water and made a hot green tea to sip on throughout the morning.
11:15am: STARVING! Took a 10 minute walk and then ate a Perfect Bar in the gorgeous San Diego sunshine. Just FYI Costco sells big boxes of Perfect Bars now for super cheap. I did the math and it breaks down to each bar only being a little over $1.
12:45: Lunch time which was leftovers from Sunday. I’m OBSESSED with this Creamy Lemon Hummus Pasta With Vegetables from Fooduzzi. I subbed asparagus instead of broccoli and added in chopped up rotisserie chicken for some extra protein. I know my leftovers don’t look that amazing but it is one of the most fantastic recipes I’ve ever tried.
1:30pm: A handful of peanut M&M’s. Why my work bought the giant Costco bag of these I’ll never know..it’s going to be the death of me.
3:45pm: I forgot my usual Fage yogurt so thankfully my work has a cafeteria with snack options that are somewhat healthy. I ate this Vanilla 100 calorie Yoplait yogurt with chia seeds and some slivered almonds….HOLY SWEET! This yogurt was so sweet compared to what I’m use to it tasted like dessert.
I was pleasantly shocked to see it had 13g of protein and only 7g of sugar…OK! And yes, I’m that psycho who has bags of almonds and chia seeds in my desk drawer.
6:30pm: Worked out!
8:00pm: If you read my Weekly Meals post on Sunday you know I always have Crockpot Salsa Chicken Thighs Tuesday nights over a taco salad. Tonight my salad had lettuce, black beans, corn, olives, avocado, tomatoes, cheese and this amazing brown rice/ quinoa mixture I recently discovered. You can get the brown rice/ quinoa mix at Sprouts or Costco. It’s amazing and cooks in the microwave in only 90 seconds.
9:30pm: Time to relax and sip some candy cane tea and diffuse peppermint oil to help clear my sinuses. Peppermint really helps get rid of any sweet craving I have at night so when I’m trying to stay away from sugar it’s my go to drink.
