This week’s “What I Ate Wednesday” recap
In the middle of the week, I like to take a moment to share a full day of my meals in pictures. Real pictures. Here we go …
Today, I’m sharing everything that I ate yesterday …
Breakfast at 7:30 a.m.
This first meal of the day came together in no time, because I had prepped it the night before. You see some overnight oats, comprised of Greek yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice, veggie power and oats, paired with a banana and a mug of hot green tea, sweetened with vanilla almond milk and stevia.
Mid-morning snack at 11 a.m.
Lunch at 2 p.m.
There is nothing prettier than a deep-purple tater. Am I right? I have officially become obsessed with these Japanese purple sweet potatoes and thus have been going to more than one grocery store to get my hands on them. They are sweeter than and take a bit longer to cook than regular sweet potatoes, but are totally worth all extra effort. Paired with two eggs and some healthy fat avocado, makes for lunch perfection.
Dinner at 7:45 p.m.
This meal was FABULOUS! This fancy dinner is thanks to a Green Chef organic meal kit, which I was delivered last week. All of the fresh ingredients were included, as well as the step-by-step instructions. If you recall, I went to an event hosted by Green Chef in San Francisco a few weeks ago and loved trying out the service in my own home as well. This particular dish includes grass-fed sirloin steak, organic brussels sprouts, blue cheese crumbles, dates, dried cranberries, pistachios, millet and more, all mixed together in a healthy salad with a mustard sauce. It took about 45 minutes to make and was a totally different meal for us to eat at home. Dave and I both were incredibly impressed and licked our huge bowls clean. By the way, Green Chef is debuting nation-wide in January and is already available in the Bay Area today. Check it out!
For a sweet ending, I had a few chugs of vanilla almond milk straight from the carton to end the day, and that’s it. Have a lovely day, my friends!
