Hello, my friends! I’m coming at you today with a standard “What I Ate Wednesday” post. It feels good to be back on my regularly scheduled programming here on the blog after a few diversions due to travel. What’s not regular? The fact that my little Rudy is having surgery today. He is getting some baby teeth extracted as well as getting neutered. Think some good thoughts for Rudy, please! And honestly, there’s not much else to report from us, so let’s get straight to the food.
This week’s “What I Ate Wednesday” recap
I don’t know about you, but I love to look at food. I also love to look at real food pictures to see what people eat on a daily basis. If you’re reading this post, you likely feel the same way. But remember, my meals are good for me and these eating recaps are nothing more than entertainment.
Today, I’m sharing everything that I ate on Monday. This was an interesting day, because I woke up in Columbus, Ohio, flew back to the Bay Area, unpacked, napped, worked on the computer, went to the grocery store and even taught an evening group fitness class.
Breakfast at 5 a.m.
Yes, this was my breakfast on the plane. You should also add in a grande hot green tea, sweetened with coconut milk, which did not make the cut for pictures. When you’re up in the middle of the night to board the first flight out of the day, you just have to go with whatever you can get your hands on to eat.
Mid-morning snack at 11 a.m.
I can’t get enough of these juices, and you’ll hear more about them tomorrow, so check back for the details on this delightful chia-filled beverage. Chunky, tasty and ultra refreshing — just what I needed after arriving back home feeling tired and dehydrated.
Lunch at 1 p.m.
Afternoon snack at 4:30 p.m.
This lovely little spread includes hot green tea, sweetened with stevia and vanilla almond milk, a sliced-up organic Fuji apple and some trail mix. That trail mix comes straight from Publix (my favorite grocery store not located here in California) and was sent to me by an amazing reader last week. All together, this makes up a delicious and balanced mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
Pre- and post-workout beverages
Right here we’ve got something to get me energized and something to help me recover from my first tough workout in several days … that’s what these little beauties did pre and post teaching Les Mills BODYATTACK.
Dinner at 8:30 p.m.
Final meal of the day included a grilled turkey burger on a whole-wheat thin bun, topped with tomato and guacamole with a side of a mixed kale salad from a bag. Totally delicious. I followed up this meal with some vanilla almond milk straight from the carton.
It felt so good to eat normal healthy meals on Monday, as well as yesterday. My weekend was less-than-healthy, as they have been lately with all of my trips and events, so sometimes I look forward to the regular old foods that fill me up without a lot of extras. That’s that! Have a lovely Wednesday, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow.
