Eats Lately

{WIAW} What I Ate Wednesday – March 2016

Hello! We made it to Wednesday already! This week is flyyyyying by for me.

My friend, Meredith, was here visiting us all weekend and she just left yesterday morning. So since I last checked in with you guys, my days have been jam-packed with Los Angeles sightseeing and lots of eating!

I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in a long time, so I thought I’d bring it back today.

Now without further ado, here’s everything I ate yesterday:



My morning started off bright and early with breakfast and coffee at 7AM. I had my favorite protein pancakes (I know, you guys are SHOCKED!!).

To be perfectly honest, I hadn’t had these babies all week. I’ve been on an egg and avocado toast kick recently, but this morning I was craving something sweeter and these pancakes hit the spot like always.

I usually have a mid-morning snack, but I didn’t have time for the gym this morning, so I guess my body wasn’t craving as much fuel as usual.

I worked like crazy throughout the morning and broke for lunch around noon. Luckily, I was at M Cafe (one of the restaurants I work for), so I got to dive into this bowl of DELICIOUSNESS.

This Thai Coconut Curry Bowl is one of my favorite items on the M Cafe menu and my belly is always so, so happy after I eat it. The bowl is packed with heirloom brown rice, seasonal vegetables, king salmon, cashews, and an insanely delicious coconut curry broth. #YUM!

Afternoon Snack

My stomach starting growling around 4PM, so I grabbed a smoothie with SunWarrior protein powder from the restaurant. It was the perfect protein-packed snack to hold me over until dinner.

Dinner last night was one of the best meals Trav and I have cooked at home in a long time. Two of the recipes we’d made before, but for some reason we both agreed that everything tasted EXTRA good last night.

Travis grilled my Cilantro and Garam Masala Chicken Kebabs, while I worked on the spiced roasted carrots and roasted fingerling potatoes. We picked up both the purple carrots and fingerling potatoes from the Santa Monica farmer’s market this past Saturday, so perhaps that’s why everything tasted so fresh and delicious.

This picture definitely doesn’t do our meal justice (I know those purple carrots look less than appetizing), but just trust me that it was great.

Damn you terrible dinner lighting!

I may have also split a cookie with Travis after dinner, but I inhaled it so fast that I forgot to snap a photo 😉


What was one thing you ate yesterday? Do you typically have 3 meals or multiple small meal throughout the day?
