It’s Wednesday! Time to take a look at my day of eats. I’m linking up with Jen @ Peas and Crayons for this edition of What I Ate Wednesday. Yesterday was a very ‘meh’ day. It was raining, I was hungry at weird times, I didn’t drink enough water, I wore plaid and leggings and I don’t think I pulled it off… it was kind of blah but I had some comforting foods.
AM Workout: 30 minutes on the elliptical. Single digit ‘levels’ only. I then did 45 minutes of upper body strength training.
Breakfast: Rainy weather is the perfect time to whip up loaded oats. I topped mine with peanut butter and strawberries. Oh, and coffee, but you guessed that.
Snack: Plain greek yogurt with frozen strawberries. By the time I am ready to eat this in the morning the strawberries are melting and add some sweetness to the yogurt! No wonder I have greek yogurt all over my computer, I eat it obnoxiously close to my keyboard.
Lunch: Lots of hummus. And, because it is socially unacceptable to eat garlic hummus by the spoonful, I used Mary’s Crackers (flax, grainy, deliciousness), cucumbers, and carrot sticks to scoop it up.
Dinner: Pita pizza with avocado, artichoke hearts, and asiago cheese. The sky was grey, I felt like carbs. I also had an apple on the side. I think there is a pita pizza in all of my WIAW posts. I like them, alright?
PM Workout: I taught a sweaty 60 minute spin class!
Snack: Chocolate protein ‘nice cream.’ Perfect cooling post-spin snack. 1.5 frozen bananas, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, and a splash of milk. Yum yum yum.
I was loving carbs for most of the day because I was feeling so ‘meh’ until I taught spin. Seriously, spin puts me in such a good mood and I think I was even MORE of a chatterbox teaching than normal because I had such a positive mood change! Endorphins are awesome.
Things you welcome back into your diet during the summer? Watermelon, munching on frozen fruit, and juice popsicles.
