What I Ate Wednesday

If you follow many food bloggers, you might be familiar with What I Ate Wednesday where bloggers share, you guessed it, a snapshot of their eats for the day. I don’t know about you, but I love hearing and seeing what other people are eating. It’s kind of like being able to see how people decorate their homes..I love that too! So yes it’s interesting to see what others are up to and eating but more importantly, it can inspire us to try something we didn’t think of before, whether that be a food item or something related to food prep. Without further ado…

Morning. Creamy vanilla protein shake. I prepped this prior to practicing my barre routine for this week and then had it a little before taking a barre class…no time for a photo..next time. Photo or not, this shake included almond milk, Xymogen vanilla protein powder (delicious), a splash of vanilla, stevia, and a little avocado with a few ice cubes. Blended in the VitaMix, it was creamy and totally held me over for a few hours, even with taking a barre class. Prior to the shake and upon waking daily, I typically drink at least half of my water bottle followed up by a cup of Runa tea. If I’m teaching the 6AM class at Xtend, I’ll have coffee instead of tea here and there.

Late Morning. A few hours later, I was hungry but knew I wasn’t going to have time to eat lunch until later in the afternoon so I had about 4 hemp heart bites (recipe slightly different as I made a batch with protein powder). Totally did the trick.

Afternoon. I thought about having a salad with a LQ veggie burger, but I wasn’t really feeling it (I had had it the day before). What did sound good was a Kale Lentil Quinoa warm salad. Included in the mix was sauteed kale in a tiny bit of butter with Herbamare and Coconut Aminos. Added to this was lentils and quinoa, green onions, a little bit of smoked goat cheese, nutritional yeast and a small scoop of a Sun Dried Tomato Lentil Hummus that I made yesterday (recipe coming soon, you can find a similar recipe here). I was so hungry by the time I ate lunch that I snacked on some carrots and celery with hummus and a quarter of a veggie burger. I try not to get this hungry typically because I always end up eating more, case in point!

A little later, I made a decaf iced coffee…our poor ice maker isn’t working so it was ‘light ice,’ not by choice. 🙂 I made it with half almond milk, half coffee and ice – I brewed a very small cup of decaf coffee in the Keurig with a splash of vanilla on top. I usually try to have Organic Allegro decaf beans on hand from Whole Foods.

Evening. Romaine wrap (I use 2-3 leaves per wrap) with mashed avocado, chopped green onions, chopped beets, a lentil quinoa veggie burger sliced. The hummus would also be delicious on this, especially if you don’t have avocado on hand.

Late evening. Banana with sunflower seed butter and topped with So Delicious whip topping.

There you have it…a little sneak peak into my eats. I try to create meals that are super satisfying yet healthy and that are easier to digest (properly combined for the most part).
