Happy Friday! I don’t think I have ever done a “what I ate today” post before. I know you are all pretty much on the edge of your seats to know what a vegetarian mother runner eats in a day so I am sharing yesterday’s eats. I notice the Friday Five theme today was food so I figured I’d link up with Courtney, Mar and Cynthia today and share my typical meals.
I have a few “go to” breakfasts and lunches that I switch up on a typical week. I usually eat 5 times a day with 3 meals and 2 snacks. I do not currently track foods or calories.
I love breakfast! When I start off with a good breakfast, I feel like my day of eating just “runs’ smoother. As I’ve mentioned in my Meatless Monday linkup, I love to make a breakfast dish on a Sunday evening that I can enjoy all week long for breakfast. I usually alternate between fritatta dishes and oatmeal bakes. This week I am enjoying my blueberry banana oatmeal bake and 2 cups of coffee and sparkling water.
Snack – morning run followed by a homemade Butterscotch chocolate chip oatmeal bars filled with all kinds of healthy goodness and sparkling water.
I usually have a big salad of some sort with beans or cheese in it but this week I had a craving for a sandwich and came up with this plate of yumminess. I have now made this grilled cheese with hummus, avocado, spinach and tomato 3 times this week. It’s my new fave! Finished my 32 oz bottle of water.
3 Hershey kisses-I need some sort of chocolate everyday and these are my go to.
Skim milk latte grande-I am not a milk drinker so adding it to coffee is the perfect way for me to get my calcium in each day. That’s how I rationalize the afternoon coffee fix.
I am so into these Cara Cara oranges the past few weeks. They are a cross between grapefruit and orange so not too sweet. I had one of these after coaching Girls on the Run today. Normally, I would have some almonds or a cheese stick but I wasn’t that hungry today.
With a crazy evening lacrosse schedule for my son, I picked up a Mexicali Vegan salad from Chop’t filled with veggies and beans and caught up on some blogging while eating. Usually, my dinners are recipes that I am testing out for Meatless Monday, soups or stir fry dishes with tofu.
I had at least 84 ounces of water/sparkling water throughout the day.
Most days my breakfasts, snacks and lunches do not vary too much. I try to mix up my dinners more while trying to accommodate my meat eating family. Confession: I often end up making 2 meals.
