What I Ate Wednesday #5

I’m STILL experiencing bottomless pit hunger from training this weekend. Our bodies really do crave those nutrients after hard workouts! It’s always extremely important to provide the muscles with healthy food so they can rebuild!
But first, whut is this #WIAW thing?!

This is a #WIAW post. The idea of #WIAW is to photograph one day of meals each week, link up to the Peas and Crayons blog, and celebrate the wonderful world of eating (it is truly amazing, after all)! It also gives us the chance to find new recipes by seeing what everyone else eats! So, after reading my blog be sure to stop by peasandcrayons.com to check out what other people ate!!!


This morning I took the dog out for a nice walk. It was needed for both her and I! She needed to let out some energy and I needed to get the blood flowing through my sore legs. This is the second week I’ve been taking her out to walk. We still have some issues with manners (she’s really mean to other dogs), but hopefully it’ll improve with time!

Breakfast

After we returned, an ice cold smoothie sounded great with the summer heat. I searched through my Pinterest and quickly found a yummy recipe (which I made a couple of modifications to).

  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon Nut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 3/4 cup cashew milk (or whatever kind you want)
  • A couple of handfuls of ice cubes

Who knew that oats in a smoothie would turn out so good? It was thick, creamy, and delicious!

AM Snack

My mom decided to try out Nekter’s Classic Juice Cleanse. Naturally, when she asked if I wanted to go with to pick them up, I couldn’t say no. Who would turn down a trip to Nekter? Today I checked out the “Cure” juice. It had beets, broccoli, kale, parsley, celery, grapes, and apples! Antioxidant heaven!
I know, it seems like I live at this place. That may be partially true.

Lunch

This week’s concoction was a sweet potato/veggie stir fry. I first sliced a sweet potato and let it pan fry for a little bit. Then, I added veggies (Trader Joe’s Asian Stir Fry mix). For seasonings, I sprinkled some Mrs. Dash on top.
Then I fried a couple of eggs for the side. Didn’t have my eggs for breakfast, so I had to include them in lunch somehow!

The best part, though, was the egg yolk. #yolkporn

Afternoon Snacks

The usuals. I’m trying my best to stay away from the salty and “snacky” type foods, and reach for more nutritious options!



Dinner

I stepped away from the canned salmon tonight and cooked up some fresh fillets! This was the first time I tried baking salmon with veggies, and boy have I been missing out.

I first sliced a zucchini and half a cup of grape tomatoes. Then I mixed this with two teaspoons of olive oil, some basil, and a little bit of salt. I then put half of the veggie mixture on one piece of foil (big enough to wrap a salmon fillet) and put the other half on another. Then I placed an uncooked salmon fillet on top of each, wrapped it up, and baked for 18 minutes!

I did up some quinoa for a side dish, and wallah!
A little bit more difficult than simply opening a can, but definitely more tasty!

PM Snack

Again, the usual!! (Still obsessed with cocoa powder by the way. It was even in my breakfast smoothie!!)

And then some more veggies to top off the day’s caloric needs.


How about you?

  • Any suggestions for getting your dog to actually like other dogs? 🙂
  • Do you like your eggs dippy or no?
  • Canned fish: yay or nay for you? (Definitely a yay, at least the Trader Joe’s brand. It’s super handy for a quick dinner!)

  1. Hpw are you with protein powder? Your cocoa powder in greek yoghurt reminds me of my chocolate-hazelnut protein powder in greek yoghurt, haha! It’s too good to be true, you should try, I think you’d like it! So healthy yet so delicious!
