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.
Breakfast post elliptical and weight lifting fun: Greek Yogurt (a mix of non-fat and low-fat), peanut butter and cranberries spread on a whole-wheat English muffin.
Snacks: Tea, apple (eaten mid morning) and banana (eaten a bit after lunch)
Lunch: Broccoli Soup (left over from the previous night’s dinner), veggies, a WONDERFUL roll from Great Harvest in Minneapolis topped with hummus and avocado. The broccoli soup recipe can be found here .
I spend the afternoon at the Art Institute Chicago. Chicago residents get in for free all month on week days FYI!
Afternoon snack – This looks gross but it isn’t! I scrambled up an egg and added this oddly wonderful cheddar dark chocolate cheese from Trader Joe’s and ate it on some toast. With some Cuties on the side. Has anyone else read Wild? I am flying through it!
Dinner: I’m not sure how I can explain this but it is a very common dinner. I took some broccoli slaw, pea pods, spinach, canned salmon (don’t hate), kasha (a new grain I’m playing with!) threw it in a pan with some coconut butter. I topped it with some pickled ginger and kimchi . One the side roasted parsnips, brussels sprouts, and butternut squash. And a cup of milk.
Snack pre bed time: Several spoonfuls of peanut butter and a bowl of low-fat yogurt.
Do you like kimchi? I LOVE it!
