Happy Wednesday! I am truly happy that it is Wednesday … the week is half over. Hallelujah. I’m wishing for the weekend even more than usual
Thank heavens for What I Ate Wednesday (kudos to Jenn for it). Such a nice lil’ thing in the middle of the week! I’m sticking with the same goal I had all month. Judge me for being boring and predictable, I dare you. I’m still going to pledge to drink more water. I’ve been doing pretty well … let’s see if I can keep it up!
Here’s some sporadic dishes from the last several days. I’ve said it before … I can NEVER remember to photograph an entire day of meals. Sooooo here’s food from when I remember (really setting this up well, aren’t I?).
Salad time! This was chick peas + black beans + edamame + chicken breast + green beans + assorted bell peppers. I topped it with roasted red pepper hummus (my official sponsor) and Greek yogurt (the key ingredient in everything I eat).
That combo made a terrific dressing! I will definitely be repeating that!
I forgot about a container of raspberries I bought at Costco last week (a travesty, right?) and they got really ripe and soft. So I mixed them in with Greek yogurt (whoop, there it is!) and my favorite protein powder, Jillian Michaels chocolate whey. Is there such thing as a chocolate marshmallow? If there is, that’s how I would describe the taste of the powder. I go through it soooo fast. This was a fantastic snack!
Breakfast wrap! A regular thing on YHG. This was two eggs + sliced turkey breast + roasted red pepper hummus (what did I tell you?) in a whole wheat wrap. I think I finished eating this on my way to work. Shocking, I was running late.
Mixed veggies + a baked sweet potato + ground turkey + lots and lots and lots of feta. I thought I might need dressing for this, but the warm potato and turkey made the feta creamy enough that everything had an even salty flavour. Apparently I don’t believe in real dishes this week either. Hello, Tupperware
A new addition to my breakfast menu! For the first time in
days weeks months, I didn’t have oatmeal or a breakfast wrap. I whipped up a quick protein cake in the microwave and topped each half with Greek yogurt and the aforementioned raspberries. The cake recipe? 1/4 cup of oats + 1 egg + 3/4 scoop chocolate protein powder + splash of water. I microwaved the mug for just over a minute and taaaa daaaah! I rubbed the inside of the mug with coconut oil so it would come out easier :)
And there you go! Have a wonderful Wednesday … let’s hope Friday shows it’s pretty face soon!
