What I Ate Wednesday #6

Yesterday was filled with physical activity! Here’s what an active day’s eats looks like in the TeelFit world.
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 is a long one (there’s a TON of food). So brace yourselves…

Pre-Workout #1 Snack

I started out the day nice and early with my usual hour walk. I don’t eat before this, I only kick start my hydration throughout the walk.

Usually I eat breakfast right after I get back, but yesterday morning I only had a few minutes before heading out for some more physical activity! A quick pre-workout snack of Cheerios and a banana helped tide me over until breakfast.

Breakfast
So, I went and team taught BodyPump to the volleyball team at my school. When I got back, I prepared an interesting Pinterest find: peanut butter breakfast pudding. Except, I made my own variation: Almond butter breakfast pudding! It was simple, delicious, and healthy!

Here’s all that you need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used cashew milk)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (I used almond butter, you know I love me some AB 🙂 )
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Additional sweetener of choice (optional)

First, you cook the oats with milk (either on the stove or in the microwave).

While that is cooking, mix the banana and almond butter in a blender.

Once the oats are done cooking, pour them into the blender and add the vanilla extract (along with your optional sweetener of choice). Blend until smooth. Then, pour your “pudding” into a bowl, side with some toast, and enjoy! I’ve been hooked on Food for Life’s cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread lately! Yum…

Pre-Workout #2 Snack

Then it was time to head out again for some CxWorx followed by BodyPump prep! I really feel like I am ready to film my video. I’ve been so anxious and don’t want to wait until July! I’m ready now!!!! Who knows, it might be the Starbucks that’s making me so antsy. I needed a little “pick me up” to power me through the workouts 🙂  

Post-Workout #2 Snack

Some almonds for the drive home! Because 15 minutes is just too long.

Lunch

Lunch was an unconventional one! I prepared a yam and stuffed it with corn, beans, and salsa. It was surprisingly delicious! I paired it with my favorite Kombucha flavor 🙂****Not related to food**** I FINALLY caught up on my Modern Family yesterday!

Back to the food….

Afternoon Snacks

My cravings are all over the place on active days. I was in the mood for an egg scramble and a turkey burger. So, I decided to mix the two and throw in some squash just for the heck of it!

Then an apple later on…
Aaaannnddd then a random rice cake because I was hungry again.

Dinner

For dinner, we went to my aunt and uncle’s house to celebrate my cousin’s birthday. Since I’m lame, I packed my own healthy dinner 🙂 I brought a nice Tupperware meal of quinoa topped with veggies and crock pot balsamic chicken.

 Night Snack

Predictable…

So, that’s what 3000+ calories looks like! I wasn’t lying, I really do eat a lot on active days!!!

How about you?

  • Are you a modern family fan? Can you believe the cliff hanger this season? Craziness!!!
  • Favorite toast: plain, cinnamon raisin, whole wheat, etc?
  • Do you like “stuffed” meals like stuffed sweet potatoes or stuffed peppers?

  1. That pudding looks HEAVENLY. I need to make it tomorrow morning! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
    I like whole wheat toast and topping it with almond butter and sliced bananas. Yum… And stuffed meals are so awesome. Stuffed peppers baked with cheese are incredible, and I really want to try stuffed sweet potatoes as well!
