Happy Wednesday everybody! We are officially at the halfway point in our week and man, this week is flying by. My workload at work has picked up quite a bit this week, so the days have been moving fast. Not that I’m complaining or anything because that just means we’re a hop, skip, and a jump away from another weekend! 🙂
Today, in typical Wednesday fashion, I’m linking up with the fabulous Jenn from Peas and Crayons to bring you another day of food pictures from yesterday, a Tuesday filled with work and a late afternoon FlyWheel class that kicked my booty! I’m not typically an afternoon exerciser, but for some reason had a blast with it yesterday. It may just become a weekly thing…maybe.
Alright, on to the food! Like I’ve mentioned before, these posts aren’t meant for you to comparison purposes. Every body needs different things throughout the day based on a number of different factors. I just like looking at food and getting new recipe ideas, so I figured a weekly blog post deserves to be set aside for that purpose.
Breakfast— Since I wasn’t planning to sleep in, but had issues getting out of my nice warm bed this morning, I had a jar of overnight oats already prepared when I woke up. Not gonna lie, they totally hit that spot and I was so glad I’d prepped them the night before. These are my version of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Oats and contain 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt, 1/3 cup almond milk, a big spoonful of PB, a spoonful of cocoa powder, and a sliced banana on top. Served with a big mug of hazelnut-flavored coffee on the side. Delish!
Lunch— The morning FLEW by, so before you know it I was digging into my next meal of the day. This past weekend, I made another Costco discovery–these veggie and hummus wraps. They’re jam-packed with protein and contain a number of different veggies including corn, red pepper, edamame, onion, and spinach. Plus, they heat up perfectly in the microwave or oven, which makes them super handy to bring to work. Paired with my typical apple on the side, I was left completely satisfied throughout the afternoon!
Snack #1— This 2% Mango Chobani yogurt just may be my new favorite. I’ve been preaching that healthy fats are necessary in a healthy diet, so I figured I should work on incorporating more of them in my life. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to fat-free yogurt. 2% is SO much more creamy and left me feeling full a lot longer.
Snack #2— Bart picked me up from work to head to the gym, but we stopped along the way to grab a snack before working out. This little Balance bar did the trick. Packed with the perfect formula of protein and carbs, I was satisfied through my entire workout and kicked butt.
Dinner— Avocado Chicken wraps made an appearance in my life again this week. Last year, I ate these at least once a week (basically was obsessed with anything avocado), but hadn’t made them in a while and figured it was time to bring them back around. They are packed with chicken, avocado, sautéed mushroom and onion, cilantro, and shredded cheese and made crunchy on the stovetop. For a little extra veg, we paired it with our typical steamed brussel sprouts on the side.
Dessert— An unpictured amount of Cosmos Coconut popcorn. Absolutely amazing. I’m pretty sure I could eat the entire bag in one sitting.
Pretty solid day of food if I do say so myself! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
