Yay for Friday! Is it me or did this week draaaaaaag on!? I have a lot of fun plans in store this weekend, so I was just anxiously awaiting the weekend since Monday. Travis’ birthday was yesterday and his sister, Justine, flew in from NYC to surprise him. I am so happy she is here with us this weekend. Justine has the ability to make everything way more fun so I know this weekend is going to be a blast!
Now without further ado, here’s a quick little What I Ate Wednesday post! I always love seeing these posts on other blogs so hopefully you guys are into it, too.
My Wednesday morning started off with my favorite protein pancakes. I think I’ve had these every morning since Passover ended. I seriously missed my oat-filled pancakes.
11:30AM: (Early) Lunch
I workout in the morning, so by the time lunch rolls around I am usually famished. I packed a salad for lunch at work, but I was so hungry that I forgot to snap a pic! So I am sharing another salad picture with you guys, which is honestly way more appetizing than my tupperware lunch.
3:30PM: Snack Time!
I keep lots of snacks in my desk drawer at work because as you guys know, I need to eat every 3-4 hours. No one wants to see my HANGRY side. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zing Bar in my drawer definitely hit the spot that afternoon. I love that these bars are packed with protein and fiber. They always hold me over until dinner.
I tried a new Hoisin Salmon recipe for dinner, but both Travis and I agreed it was just…BLAH. For some reason you couldn’t even taste the hoisin or other flavors in the marinade, so we were both left feeling pretty disappointed. I HATE wasting food, so I still managed to eat it anyway.
I made the salmon with a side of roasted vegetables, and at least those were delicious! There is something about roasting vegetables that makes me want to eat ALL OF THEM. Travis and I polished off the baking sheet of roasted sweet potatoes, zucchini, bell pepper, and onions in no time.
8:30PM: Nighttime snack
I never used to eat snacks after dinner but Travis has been on an after-dinner cereal kick recently, so he got me hooked. It is probably not the best habit to get into, but after a less than satisfying dinner, cereal was in the cards.
I poured myself a bowl of Cheerios with fresh sliced organic strawberries and almond milk. It was exactly what I needed.
That’s it from me! Hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll be back early next week to say hi to you guys!
