Happy Hump Day! Hope your week is moving along well. Things are trucking along here. I have not shared a post of daily eats in a few weeks so I thought it I would bring that back into the mix.
WIAW #16: Sweet Snacks
In usual What I ate Wednesday style, I am covering an entire day of meals, snacks and drinks. I feel these posts provide me with the chance to give you a glimpse into my every day eating habits. I find that reading these posts are often great inspiration for meal ideas too!
In no way do I plan ahead or eat differently than I normally would. All days are a little of course. I do attempt to make everything look just a tad nicer – for your sake.
What I Ate
I have been eating eggs a lot for breakfast, and yesterday was no exception. I was up early and had a large cup of coffee around 6:30. I was starving around 8:00, and assembled this quick meal of scrambled egg whites and a grain-free apple spice muffin I made over the weekend. I am surprised any of these baked treats are still around. I added some butter and apple butter as a topping and silently thought about how I would like more coffee, but felt too lazy to make it.
Scott and I went to the chiropractor late morning together. Neither of us have 9-5 schedules so we often will do appointments like this during the day when the wait time is typically shorter and there is no traffic!
I even wore real clothes for the occasion…I jest, but I have been wearing gym clothes quite frequently these days. Scott snagged a random selfie of me as we were heading out the door.
After we got back, I started to type up a blog post for the afternoon, and Scott made lunch. Grass-fed burgers which were nice and easy. Plus salads with an array of vegetables including spinach, leftover roasted cauliflower, purple onion and tomato.
As I was back on my computer I found I wanted a little something sweet so I dug this treasure out of the pantry. I have been looking for the Snickerdoodle flavor Larabar forever! I finally spied one out of the corner of my eye at Whole Foods last week. I ate half (Larabars are a little high in sugar), but it was only ok. Perhaps I built it up too much in my head. It needed some chocolate or something…
I had a few errands to run in the afternoon including checking out a new yoga studio! More on that to come. Plus I picked up a few essentials at Trader Joe’s and headed home…
I grabbed a rice cake with almond butter and raw honey to tide me over as a snack.
I joined Scott for a quick workout in the gym and then headed in to make dinner. I drank my protein shake while I pulled things together in the kitchen.
Wild-caught salmon with asparagus and my butternut squash recipe.
I was completely distracted while I was cooking, and the salmon was a little overdone and the asparagus was a little too raw. Such is life! It was a fairly good dinner anyway. Scott and I shared some dark chocolate for dessert (unpictured), and went our separate ways. He had some work to do for school, and I had this post to write up!
During my computer time, I was overcome with the desire to bust out my Candy Cane Green Tea.
My favorite seasonal tea returns to the Joe’s! It is truly the little things in life…
So that is all folks, have a great day and I will see you this afternoon!
