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.
