I follow too many healthy living/cooking/fitness blogs to count and one thing I have noticed is a lot of them blog about what workouts they are doing or what they are eating for breakfast/lunch/dinner at the moment etc…
I have also noticed a trend of “What I Ate Wednesdays(informally known as WIAW)” a day on which the blogger will post a picture of every meal they ate that day. I was thinking about it and I thought it would be fun to post something a little different and show you all a “typical Tuesday” in my life (note: I say “typical” because my meals are always changing based on what foods I have on hand or am loving at the moment). So. . .
To begin my day I always have the world’ largest cup of coffee with soy milk and a handful of Kashi’s Go Lean Honey Almond Flax cereal (not pictured). I never eat this cereal for breakfast because it is way to crunchy! My family always says it sounds like I am eating bones :(. Often I will sit and read for an hour or so before going for a jog or to the gym. When I return home I am always hungry for breakfast (possibly my favorite meal of the day).
I enjoyed this breakfast but I missed my oatmeal. It keeps me full so much longer! My stomach started growling around 1:00 pm so I threw together my new favorite lunch salad. It is sort of a rift on a greek salad with cherry tomatoes, spinach, cucumber, a boca burger for protein and greek yogurt, hummus and pita on the side for dipping.
Yum! I like this lunch so much that I have eaten it for three days straight.
I spent the afternoon working on internship stuff, listing my textbooks on Amazon and going for a walk with my sister.
Normally, around 6 pm I will make dinner for the fam. Accept I was all alone tonight (a very rare occasion). So I made another salad (I think they are the perfect meal for one because you can throw a bunch of leftovers on lettuce and call it a meal).
In the mix was tilapia, leftover sweet potato, red onions, romaine, red bell pepper and this awesome buffalo feta greek spread I picked up at Whole Foods. I love it so much that I have been putting it on everything! It makes the best salad dressing ever.
I watched Dancing with the Stars for a while before wanting something crunchy. My newest snack obsession is popcorn. I put a few tablespoons in a paper bag and microwave for 3 minutes. Then I will spray it with EVOO cooking spray and top with parmesan cheese mixed with spices or PB2 (powdered peanut butter). Tonight it was PB2. Popcorn+Little Penguin Cabernet=my favorite evening snack
Like I said there is no “typical” day of meals at my house. Sometimes I eat more or less depending on how hungry/bored/active I am that day. Eating is highly personal and it really depends on what is right for each person.
