Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday. I definitely woke up this morning expecting it to be Thursday, and I was actually relieved to remember that it was Wednesday because that meant I had an extra day to complete my assignments at work (I have a big project due on Thursday and Friday). What kind of convoluted thinking is that? Being happy that Friday is further away than I thought? Sheesh this job is making me crazy.
Anyway, one great part about Wednesday is that it means it’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday post! Today’s post depicts every little morsel that entered my mouth yesterday. Unfortunately, Jenn (the creator of WIAW) wants us to focus on sensible summer snacking this month, and yesterday I happened to be way too busy at work to even think about a snack :-/ However, I do have this post which talks about how I handle snacking at the office, so you can read that post for more information. Hopefully next week I will remember to eat more snacks (which is better for my metabolism anyway!). So, without further ado, here’s this week’s WIAW post!
1. For breakfast yesterday morning I had an omelet with one egg, one egg white, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and reduced fat cheddar cheese. This breakfast was delicious and kept me full all morning. Win!
2. For lunch, I had some Ledo’s pepperoni pizza leftover from Friday night. Ledo’s is one of my favorite pizza places and I can never turn it down! Plus I love that the slices are really small so it’s easy to control your portion size. These four small pieces allowed me to feel like I was eating something really decadent, without all of the calories. Perfect!
3. When I got home from work, I had a small cup of Naked’s Green Machine juice. This juice is made from fruits like apples, bananas, kiwis, and strawberries (so it tastes awesome) but also has an extra boost from ingredients like broccoli, spinach, wheat grass, and Barley grass. It’s a really delicious drink and I love when I have some on hand (Fabio usually buys it), but it’s important to note that it has a lot of natural sugar (from all the fruit) so you have to be careful not to consume too much of it.
4. For dinner I had another Asian steak salad with mango and avocado. I cannot get enough of this salad. It is so good. If you haven’t tried it yet, I seriously recommend it. It combines so many of my favorite flavors. Yum!
And that’s it! That’s everything I ate yesterday. Upon reflection I am happy that I consumed a lot of veggies, but I probably could have used some additional fiber and calcium. The pizza obviously was not the most nutritious option, but it sure was delicious! And, as I mentioned earlier, I need some extra mid-day snacks to boost my metabolism! Hopefully I’ll have more time next week for munching during work J
Also, a little birdie told me there might just be a giveaway on the blog tomorrow. Come back in the morning to see if the birdie was right!
