Happy Wednesday blog readers! Let’s take a look at What I Ate Today…Wednesday!
This morning I ate two pieces of toasted whole wheat bread- one with crunchy almond butter sprinkled with cinnamon and the other smeared with TJ’s pumpkin butter. To up my protein intake even more, I ate scrambled egg whites cooked with onions and green peppers and topped them with nutritional yeast.
Oh, and speaking of pumpkin butter…check out this amazing candle that my mom bought me:
It smells pretty amazing. I would say that she definitely knows me well!
No explanation needed.
Lunch consisted of leftover “Little Smokies” Vegetarian Meatballs served over whole brown rice. This time when I cooked these I used Trader Joe’s Meatless Meatballs and I actually had to double-check the package to make sure that they were vegetarian because they tasted so real!
I also ate a Red Delicious apple.
While cooking dinner, I snacked on two lightly salted whole brown rice cakes topped with Wholly Guacamole Roasted Tomato salsa. Yum!
Tonight’s dinner consisted of Spicy African Peanut Stew, which I ate with crushed saltine crackers. I followed Sarah’s recipe exactly, except I used coconut flavored almond milk and cooked the soup on the stove top instead of in a slow cooker. This stew was very tasty and I highly recommend that you make it!
I ate a side of cooked green beans to round out the meal. Gotta incorporate those veggies!
Tonight’s snacks have/will consist of:
A giant and delicious bowl of fresh fruit…
…baby carrots and celery with hummus…
…and likely a salty snack (I am thinking whole wheat Wasa cracker breads topped with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge and blackberry jam).
Happy almost Thursday!
