What I Ate Wednesday

Goooood Morning!  My first official What I Ate Wednesday post.  Please let the record state that I am not a registered dietitian, an expert, or anywhere near perfect.  I should also mention this post was not sponsored by Trader Joes.

Today included a great leg workout from Blogilates.  Seriously. I felt my legs for two days after this workout.

Breakfast:  An oatmeal "pancake" with natural peanut butter and maple syrup and an iced coffee with Almond Milk.  I should probably scale back on the amount of maple think?

Snack 1: Apples and peanut butter

Lunch:  Udi's gluten free bread with Trader Joe's chicken salad.  I ate the rest of my apple and some broccoli.  Sometimes I'll only eat one slice of gluten free bread because they tend to be dry...Anyone else have that problem?  I ate this about an hour before my leg workout.

Snack 2 (post workout snack):  Strawberries and Almonds

Snack 3: Small amount of smoothie.  It was made with coconut water (Trader Joe's brand), spinach, frozen mixed berries, and half a banana.  It tastes better than it looks.  Way to get a good picture....

Dinner:  Trader Joe's gluten free chicken nuggets, homemade sweet potato fries (they were way too salty), and some frozen veggies.

Huh.  After looking at what I ate today I feel like I eat a lot more veggies than I thought I did.  Insightful.

I also had a small handful of M&Ms (what was left in the bag..)

This post does not reflect the water I drank with every meal and while working out.  I didn't take pictures.  Nothing fancy.  Glass, ice, and water.  boom.

  1. Apples and nut butter are probably the best snack ever! Yum!

    1. I couldn't agree more :D Thanks for the comment :D

  2. I am a huge fan of oatmeal pancakes but I am doing Paleo right now so they are not on the plan :( I miss them!

    1. I don't know what I would do for breakfast if if I gave up my oatmeal. But going Paleo for awhile might be something I do someday. Thanks for the comment :)
