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.

What I Ate Wednesday: First Edition!

What I Ate WednesdayI’m not sure I ever participated in a What I Ate Wednesday. This is a documentation of what I ate yesterday.

Most mornings  (since last week), I’ve been making The Guy and I smoothies. Thank the lord I bought some cocoa powder because I’m not the biggest fan of berry smoothies, I mean, I’ll drink them — but you know… chocolate is where it’s at.

9:45am Smoothie made with greek yogurt, ice cubes, chocolate milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, half a banana, 3 large strawberries and a couple of raspberries.WIAW smoothie

10:45am Raw nuts with some dark chocolate thrown in, unsweetened dried mango, rapberriesWIAW nuts

3:45 A little snack time at Trader Joe’s sample area. Corn chips and green tea lemonadeWIAW TJs samples

4:15pm PIZZA!! You guys know I go to this place on the regular. So much I get hugs from the staff every time I go in, ha ha ha!!WIAW pizza

5:40pm Since I went so many hours without eating while I was at yoga and climbing, I still felt hungry after my pizza. So I made a cup of tea, ate some chocolate covered raisins, a peach, and these weird “chips” made out of peas, from Trader Joe’s. They were ok. WIAW tea snack

8:30pm Finally got some vegetables in my system. Lemon pepper chicken stir fry which I posted on Instagram last night. Mrs Dash seasoning isn’t as good as the Bulk Barn lemon pepper, so I’m on the hunt for the perfect Lemon Pepper seasoning down here in the states. This one has too much of a lemon cleaner flavour. Go figure ;)WIAW supper

Side note, I’m thinking of doing another Day In The Life post. I could’ve easily documented yesterday. I did an hour of yoga and went for a two hour boulder session at the gym yesterday. I was so happy, I felt like doing the Carlton Dance to the Pharrell William’s Happy.

On my plate

Guess you can classify this as a “What I Ate Wedensday” sort of post. Except this is an accumulation of meals I’ve been eating since moving to the sunny state. The produce here in California is unreal. I’ve never been much of an orange eater, mainly because they’re not as flavourful and juicy as I’d like.

orangeI dug into one the other day and it was probably the best orange I’ve had in my entire life. Not even a little bit of an exaggeration. Those little orange suckers are just looking for a way in my shopping cart each week, I just know it. Sneaky buggers.
