Thought I would do a What I Ate Wednesday post today. Check out Peas and Crayons for more information!
These are my eats from last Monday.
After a non-running , yet sweaty elliptical and strength gym session, I came home to make some grub! I prepped my breakfast the night before by combining 1/4 oatbran, 1 tablespoon chia seeks, and 1 cup milk to chill in the fridge. Then while I was stretching I threw it in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirred, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The sitting time is key. I always add greek yogurt to my oats…. usually 3/4 a cup. And big spoonful of peanut butter. Then heat for one minute. Perfect.
Snack mid-morning was tea and a banana.
For lunch I took the rest of some hummus and combined it with some left over chickpeas. Looks gross. Was wonderful. On the side I had veggies and a toasted mini bagel with sharp cheddar cheese.
Sometime in there after lunch I realized I was still really hungry so I had a pear and went at the peanut butter jar with a spoon. Because that is the way I roll.
Before meeting some wonderful ladies for a Yoga core class (Yoga? Exercise in the evening? Who am I? More on that class sooooooon) I had a snack of cottage cheese, almond butter and an apple.
After the workout, I went to the Protein Bar . Mostly because I demanded it. But no one rejected my plan. I just really wanted to try it!!!! Here is proof of my excitement. Thanks for the picture Kelsey . Katie isn’t as excited.
Me = EXCITED
No picture as documentation for the wonders of green. It was really, really good!! But here is what I had:
Once I got home, I decided I was still hungry so I had my usual bedtime snack of yogurt + protein powder and scoops of peanut butter. I was heavy on the peanut butter scooping (probably a couple tablespoons) and threw it on some toast.
That was fun.
Have a fabulous day!
