Happy Wednesday! Standard stuff here. After yesterday’s incredibly long post about “How I started working in the fitness industry,” today, I’m keeping it short and sweet with some pictures of my food.
This week’s “What I Ate Wednesday” recap
Every Wednesday is a great chance to talk about food … real food … normal food. As always, I share these food diary posts because I like to see what other people eat, and I’m guessing you do too. Some days are better than others, and I tend to eat a lot of the same things. You’ll always see a combination of simple meals, spread throughout the day, with a few snacks thrown in as well.
Today, I’m sharing everything that I ate on Sunday of this week. This was a rest day, spent mostly at home.
Breakfast at 8 a.m.
A pretty standard breakfast for me. A hearty serving of overnight oats, consisting of Greek yogurt, vanilla almond milk, chia seeds, gluten-free oats, cinnamon and veggie powder. I topped the oats with a banana and enjoyed them alongside a mug of hot green tea, sweetened with vanilla almond milk and stevia. You can’t go wrong with pre-made OO to start the day (overnight oats, of course).
Lunch at 12:30 p.m.
So many pretty colors! A baked sweet potato, covered in cinnamon, two fried eggs and some avocado. This plate of excellence is even more excellent when you mix it all together in each bite. A form of this meal has been my go-to lunch for more than a month non-stop. I can’t get enough.
Afternoon snack at 5 p.m.
Snack time! Dave brought home this tasty bottle of kombucha for me as a surprise, and it was unbelievably good. I feel like it gave me a boost of energy too. I enjoyed it alongside some pumpkin yogurt. Because pumpkin. Overall, these two items combined made a nice mid-day snack, which helped me get through a long day, as I memorized BODYATTACK choreography from morning to night.
Wine at 7 p.m.
I do like to have a glass or two of the good stuff on the weekends. And as any decent sous chef would, I sat in the kitchen with this glass of wine, as Dave prepped our dinner for the night. He is always the grill master, and sometimes gets stuck with the other duties as well. It was cold Chardonnay from a box for me.
Dinner at 8:15 p.m.
You don’t see a lot of red meat or steak on my “What I Ate Wednesday” posts, because I don’t eat it all that often. But believe it or not, I actually ate nearly this same dinner on both Saturday and Sunday nights of this past weekend. I was craving steak, and boy it was good. We each had New York Strip steak with some grilled asparagus. Simple perfection.
Dessert at 9 p.m.
I was pretty full after dinner, but couldn’t end the night without something small and sweet. This little platter made the perfect dessert. Just two large coconut-covered date rolls, a special Hawaiian shortbread cookie leftover from our Maui trip and a mug of warm vanilla almond milk was all that I needed.
And that was that! A decent day of food, for sure!
Today, I’m teaching a BODYPUMP class in the morning, working on the computer, taking Rudy to the vet to get his stitches out and teaching two classes tonight at Orangetheory. A full day. Have a good one, my friends!
