I am not sure if I’ve ever done a What I ate Wednesday post before! I honestly can’t remember. I always think it’s interesting to see how other people fuel up during the day. It’s a great way to get ideas for my meals. As a vegetarian, I find it challenging to get enough protein some days. So…here it goes my What I Ate Wednesday. Truth be told, this is actually what I ate yesterday.
What I Ate Wednesday
Breakfast: Banana strawberry blueberry Oatmeal Bake and coffee
I am definitely a creature of habit person especially at breakfast. I either have some sort of egg and veggie omelet/frittata or an oatmeal bake. I just cannot get into the overnight oats as I much prefer a warm breakfast. This delicious Banana strawberry blueberry oatmeal bake can easily be prepped in advance and stored in individual portion sizes. The only ingredients are oats, almond milk, eggs and fruit. No sugar added at all. You can find the recipe here.
Exercise: 4 mile run
Lunch: Leftover Veggie Chili
Starving post run, I was looking for something comforting and cozy. Heated up some left over veggie chili with a little shredded cheddar and a few tortilla chips. All was good until I decided to go to a hot yoga class last minute. Note to self: do not eat chili before hot yoga. My usual lunch is a big salad with some sort of beans so a nice change for me.
Exercise: 60 min hot yoga class
Snack: handful of roasted almonds, clementine and a piece of cheddar cheese.
Dinner: Power Bowl with eggs and veggies
Since I did not have eggs for breakfast today, I figured why not throw together a bunch of leftovers into one veggie power bowl. Depending on what I have leftover, I make a variation of this bowl at least twice a week. Tonight’s bowl has a base of greens, brown rice, 2 eggs, broccoli, asparagus, a little hummus and harissa. Strange but good. Hummus is a fabulous pairing with eggs.
I managed to get in a good amount of protein today and no added sugars or sweets. A win in my book! That’s a typical “What I Ate Wednesday” for this mother runner. What are your fave foods this week? Favorite Veggie?
