Oh man Oh man Oh man. Have you guys read this book yet?
I’m reading it as part of Peanut Butter Finger’s book club and I cannot put it down. I just got to a major turning point (Part II? Anyone? So did not see that coming) and even though I’m at work (and insanely busy, I might add) all I can think about it whether I can squeeze in a 5-minute coffee break to read a few more pages (kindle clicks?). Gah!
I love when books are this good and, even though I really like Julie’s book club, the last few books haven’t been that engaging. This one is full of action and keeps me on my toes, just the way I like it!
Soooo it happens to be Wednesday today, and you know what that means. It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday! Woohoo! I will warn you though that as opposed to all of my previous What I Ate Wednesday posts, this one doesn’t have a fancy numbered collage. I know, I know, I suck. The reason for that is because I only ate three things yesterday (no snacks. womp womp) and a collage just didn’t feel necessary. Next week, assuming I eat a more varied diet, I will continue with the collages because hey, I like those collages.
Anyway, thanks go to Jenn, as always, for hosting such an awesome linkup. I am so happy to be a part of something so huge in the healthy blogging community!
So, here’s what I ate yesterday!
To start off my day, I had one egg + one egg white on top of half a whole wheat English muffin, topped with my mom’s peach salsa. You can’t really see the English muffin under the egg, but it was there, I promise! The eggs were cooked perfectly (thanks to Fabio, my egg-master-cooking-boyfriend) and I used the English muffin to sop up all the yolk. Delicious! Oh, and I had a glass of OJ on the side.
I finally have new snacks for my lunch! Yay! I know you guys were probably getting tired of seeing my turkey sammie, almonds, and pretzels every week, right? Well, I can’t promise that lunch won’t make a reappearance next week, but for this week I tried to switch things up by trading in my almonds and pretzels for baby carrots and hummus. I also had some peach Chobani yogurt for dessert. Yum! My sandwich stayed the same (turkey, cheese, & mustard on a sandwich thin) but I can’t help it! It’s so easy and tasty! Baby steps, people, baby steps.
For dinner, I decided to try out a new recipe and wound up with a delicious Asian chicken dish. It included mangoes, sweet potatoes, and spicy chicken served over a bed of steamed spinach and quinoa. This dish was fantastic! It used my favorite flavor combo of spicy and sweet. I tell ya, that combination get me every time! I’m planning to share this recipe with you guys tomorrow, so stay tuned
And that’s it; that’s all I ate yesterday. Things have been super crazy at work lately, which doesn’t leave much time for snacking (even though I know that’s bad for my metabolism, I just can’t make myself take a break to eat when I’m running around like crazy).
All in all my eats were pretty good yesterday, although they could have used a few more fruits and veggies (like every week). There also weren’t too many healthy fats in my diet, since I didn’t eat any almonds, avocados, etc., but I think the sweet potato made up for that a little bit (I think?).
Anyway, what have you guys been eating lately? Any new snacks involved? I have to tell you I am loving those little travel packs of hummus. They are so convenient!
