What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) #1

Wednesday, September 23, 2015


Happy Wednesday guys! I hope everyone is having a great first half of their week. I am super excited about this post because it is my first ever WIAW post! For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a post concept developed by the wonderful Peas And Crayons blog in which you simply post what you ate in any given day (not necessarily that Wednesday). I have always loved reading other blogs WIAW posts, so I am excited to finally do some of my own :) Here we go!


Breakfast
at about 7:30am
{ Smoothie made with 1/2 scoop Vega All-in-one chocolate shake + 1/2c Unsweetened almond milk + Frozen banana + Frozen berries & cinnamon & 1/2 an Ezekiel english muffin with organic PB + Coconut oil }


Lunch
at about 12:30pm

Yikes! The busy day caught up with me & I ate before snapping a pic :(
{ Sautéed kale + swiss chard (in coconut oil) + Grilled italian chicken + Avocado + Leftover broccoli }


Snack
mid-afternoon
{ Apple cinnamon oatmeal Detour Smart Bar + 1c Organic carrot juice }

SIDE NOTE
I have started drinking 1c organic pure carrot juice the past week after doing some research on the AMAZING benefits thanks to the idea from my friend Jess... Expect a blog post on this soon!)
+ First time trying these bars, pretty tasty! Only 4g sugar and 10g Protein is what I like to see in a bar.


Dinner
post-workout
{ Salad of mixed spring greens + Cucumbers + Tomatoes + Leftover garlic roasted cauliflower + Goat cheese + Leftover balsamic salmon + italian good seasons dressing }


Dessert
post-dinner
{ A few chunks of 85% + 72% dark chocolate --> Trader Joe's & Green and Black's }

SIDE NOTE
Sometimes I like a little something sweet after dinner or a while later, and nothing quiets my sweet tooth like super dark chocolate! Quality over quantity as rich cacao is filled with antioxidants, fiber, and very little sugar. I used to only have a taste for 72% but I worked my way up to 85% & 90% and it actually tastes amazing to me now!

  1. Welcome to WIAW! I love those Smart bars. It's really good if you warm it in the microwave for ~10 seconds.
