What I Ate Wednesday #4

What I Ate Wednesday

My husband and I drink smoothies in the morning for our breakfast, but unfortunately ran out of greek yogurt and I was too lazy to drive to the grocery store to get the one item, so decided to wait it out until we needed more food. So no smoothies were happening yesterday :(

This is a recap of all the food I consumed yesterday for a fourth instalment of What I Ate Wednesday. I love doing these, mainly because I like to see what kind of food everyone seems to enjoy, or not enjoy. I guess we’re all nosey creatures by nature. So let’s jump right into it.

banana8:20am — The Guy woke up earlier than usual to go to work, so I got up with him around 7:30 and helped him gather his things. After he was gone, I ate a banana.

fruit and nut9:20am — I wanted to wait a little longer to have this fruit (1 peach plus a bunch of strawberries) and raw nuts combo, because I knew I’d be going to yoga then climbing, and wouldn’t have much food in my belly until mid-afternoon.

gnocchi3:00pm — Not much left, but I ate some chicken (not pictured as I ate the chicken before photographing) gnocchi pasta that I made the other night. I was craving pizza so bad, since we’ve been eating take out for the majority of the past two weeks. But I decided to stay boring and somewhat healthy and eat my leftovers. So appetizing, I know. I ran out of pasta sauce and decided to make my own concoction of butter, garlic, milk and whatever else I could think of. Tasted good at least.

tea and snacks5:55pm — spotta tea and a snack (chocolate covered raisins, unsweetened dried mango and plantains) while I caught up on YouTube videos.

Ghirardelli7:50pm —More chocolate. My last square of the mini Ghirardelli samples they were giving out at the store in San Francisco.

chickensalad9:45pm — Chicken salad for The Guy and myself.

What I Ate Wednesday: #2

What I Ate Wednesday
Is this even interesting to you? What I ate yesterday, put into a post for today? If you’d like me to continue (or stop for that matter) just let me know. I’m trying to switch things up a bit on my blog. Have a variety of fitness, beauty and food related posts. I am TRYING to eat healthy every day with little to no sugary processed foods. Frickin hard man. I love me some candy and pepsi.

Either way I had a pretty fantastic (re: athletic) day yesterday and felt on top of the world. I’ll get more into that on my weekly fitness recap next Tuesday.

8:45am — A berry smoothie. I had plans on making a purely chocolate, banana + peppermint extract. Except when I made it, and taste-tested it, I nearly vom’ed. It was disgusting. I put 1 tablespoon of extract in, and probably should have stuck to 1-2 drops. A lesson learned. Thus the second smoothie of the morning was made after I poured the other one down the sink. This was made with zero ice, so I ended up throwing in frozen blueberries, handful of strawberries and raspberries, filled it with some greek yogurt and milk and that’s that. WIAW Bfast

10:45am — Had a snack before I went to yoga and bouldering. WIAW preworkout snack

2:50pm — Came home from 75 minutes of yoga, and 1 hour bouldering and filled my belly with this delicious lunch. I didn’t want my sandwich to end. I’m definitely picking up more of these. They’re from Whole Foods and simply turkey and cheese on a baguette, but good lord that bread was the perfect amount of crunch to chewiness. Craving it already.WIAW lunch

6:25pm — Feelin’ a bit hungry but not fully ready for supper to be cooked. So I made myself a cup of tea (Tetley! The only way to go) and 2 pieces of Whole Foods biscotti. Hit the spot.WIAW 6pm snack

7:45pm — Hungry for supper. Made a huge chicken salad with feta, mushrooms, green pepper, tomatoes, dried cranberries, and carrots. No dressing, I prefer it that way.WIAW salad supper

10:25pm — The Guy and I went to the movies and saw X-Men. I never not buy popcorn and a drink to share. We had the entire theatre to ourselves!WIAW popcorn

What snacks do you buy when you go to the movies?

What are you making for supper?

Today is National Running Day, thanks to Sheena for letting me in on the know-how. So I’m thinking of going to Yoga first (we’ll see) then doing the longest run of my entire life. Take a while guess at what I’m going to do. Hahahaha. Guess.
