Good Morning! I trust that the week is going well for you.
Since it’s Wednesday, I am diving right into WIAW and have all of my Tuesday eats to share with you. I have a vet check-up for Aspen shortly, so lets get right to it!
What I Ate
Since Monday was the first post-season day off for Scott and I, we celebrated by ordering pizza and eating ice cream for dessert that night. It was pretty wonderful, although I woke up still kind of full Tuesday morning, which sparked this simple breakfast.
(Dunkin’ Hazelnut coffee with almond milk, egg beaters with sharp cheddar cheese, turkey bacon + organic strawberries and grapes.)
I picked up an appetite around Noon, but didn’t feel like making lunch until I was finished with more work on the computer. This snack of pretzels and carrots dipped in hummus held me over for a while.
Around 3:30 p.m. I put together the epitome of a monster salad for lunch.
Baby spinach, spring mix, cucumbers, red, orange, and banana peppers, carrots, black and green olives, chick peas, feta cheese, cilantro, ground pepper.
Okay, maybe it was more like linner.
(Same salad drizzled in red wine vinegar for dressing!)
The plate of greens definitely hit the spot, but I wanted something with a little more staying power before heading to the gym.
When in doubt, toast and peanut butter it out! That’s what I always say…
Whole wheat toast smeared in almond butter and topped with sliced bananas and chia seeds.
I wanted more than one piece, but two might have been pushing it. I was pretty full even an hour later before Fitness Pilates.
By the end of class, I wasn’t incredibly hungry, but chose to grab a protein green smoothie on the way out to recover.
(Avocado, kale, organic pineapple, almond milk, VeganMax protein & Energy Boost.)
On the way out to the car, I also noticed how stunning the sunset has been lately, despite the recent snowfall that is totally uncalled for.
That little cup of goodness ended up keeping me full and content until about 9 p.m., when Scott brought me the last slice of leftover Hawaiian/veggie pizza (?) upstairs to me.
You can’t really say no to that kind of service.
Then I wanted something sweet. As much as I was tempted by ice cream again, I went ahead and grabbed a big tub of organic green grapes we needed to use up.
Mission accomplished! 😉
All right. This has been fun, but I must wrap things up and get out the door with one little furry feline. Aspen has been dealing with an ear infection on and off for quite a while and I am hoping to leave with news that it has finally passed. See you all again this afternoon with a continuation of Beauty Week!
Have a great Wednesday!
