What I Ate Wednesday
What I Ate Wednesday is a popular link-up between food bloggers, started by Jenn at Peas and Crayons, to showcase what they typically eat in a day. Time for another round of deeeeeeelicious eats! Today's What I Ate Wednesday post is from last Tuesday, so...it's really What I Ate Last Tuesday the day before I posted my previous What I Ate Wednesday post. So confusing, I know.
On this day I had a pretty early wake-up call to head to the gym before work. At 4:45am I jumped out of bed (I know, I'm a weirdo), chugged water, took my shot of apple cider vinegar diluted with water. And made my kind of coffee. Coffee with 1 T Sports Research coconut MCT oil, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 t of Essential Living Foods maca blend, a few drops of liquid stevia and a dash of nutmeg. Blended together and enjoyed thoroughly :) Afterwards, I had a 1/2 banana for pre-workout fuel.
After I got back from the gym, I showered and then made breakfast. Loaded make-ahead steel cut oats with 1 egg white, 1 T grass fed whey protein powder, 2 T PB2. Topped with a blood orange, a few frozen grapes, 1 T almond butter and 1 T cacao nibs.
I had some green tea when I got to work...and then work, work, work.
I was just about to eat lunch and then I got another client to see, and because I was getting hangry, I had a couple energy bites.
An hour or so later I had this lunch I prepped on Monday. Almost 5 Ingredient spaghetti squash casserole with a few added items like spinach, parsley and enjoyed with olives. YUM. I also had a homemade kombucha after lunch.
Afternoon snackage included a beet blueberry muffin with peanut butter and leftovers of my Quick Roasting Brussels Sprouts with Grapes, Dates and Pecans.
For dinner, I had a chicken mexican quinoa bake to recipe test. I was going to share the recipe this week, but it just wasn't perfect. Still needs to be more sauce-y. But I still have a great recipe coming to you tomorrow :)
And because I love to end the night on a sweet note and I always need a little extra the nights before I work out in the morning- I made a snack sized portion of a blueberry smoothie with 1/2 scoop protein powder, topped with Puffins.
