Hello! Today I am jumping back on the What I Ate Wednesday train.
I know a lot of you like seeing these posts, so I have to preface this edition with a disclaimer… it’s nothing special. In fact, my meals were very thrown together and jumbled together yesterday.
I went to bed full, but I know I could have done a much better job at getting in more fruits, proteins, and veggies… and I don’t know, maybe something other than soup for a substantial meal?
I guess it happens.
You’ve been warned. Here we go!
What I Ate
I wasn’t super hungry for breakfast, so I settled on a big cup of coffee and a sliced up honeycrisp apple. I normally like to dip apples in some kind of peanut or almond butter, but I just wasn’t feeling that either this time.
A small breakfast it was!
That did the trick and held me through working on the computer for a couple of hours. After I finished blogging, I had a couple of administrative tasks to take care of for the new job and before I knew it, I had ten minutes to get out the door.
Lucky for me, I have a solid collection of Amy’s Kitchen soups on hands at all times. I know… I always talk about Amy’s. These frequent mentions are not sponsored in any way, and I simply have a true and meaningful love for the brand. Amy and I are pretty close y’all. I see her quite often.
This time it was a can of minestrone over leftover rice to scarf down for lunch on the way to training!
I wanted to put together and complete a new workout when I got home around 4:30 p.m., but it just wasn’t in the cards. I promise that I am trying to get more workout material up for you guys!
I quickly put together my latest race recap and snacked on a hearty helping (or five) of sweet potato & sea salt triscuits dipped in hummus while I typed. Yep… that is exactly why I insist on using a keyboard cover. Classy.
I knocked out my post and had just enough time to change and head out to the area for the Pistons vs. Lakers game. I got there in a hurry and was sad to see another loss for our team. We get so close to a W every time! Hopefully things change soon.
By the time I got back to the car, it was close to 10:30 p.m. and the last thing Scott and I wanted to do was go out to dinner. We were both pretty hungry, so Scott and I met at home, he heated up leftovers, and I made anything I could find that somewhat remotely made sense.
I went for the same loaded sweet potato I shared last week, but it just didn’t turn out the same this go around.
Sweet potato topped in spinach, Amy’s chili, and Parmesan cheese.
It may not have looked a great, but it tasted good and did the job just fine. I finished it off with a tall glass of dark chocolate almond milk and called it a night soon after!
So there you have another full day of eats!
This is just one of the many examples you can find exploring the “WIAW” tag on the right hand sidebar if you’re ever curious to see what another complete day of meals and snacks looks like for me. Most likely, those posts will contain more balanced meals and more of the food pyramid.
