Happy Wednesday (though it really feels like Friday), friends! Only four hours of work stand between me and a four and a half day weekend. Noon cannot come soon enough. But before we get the Thanksgiving party started, let’s stop by the What I Ate Wednesday party! It has been a couple of weeks since I have joined in, so I am excited to get back in there. Check out What I Ate
Breakfast #1 was eaten at 6:20 a.m. before heading to the Y to swim laps for the first time in over a year…talk about a humbling experience!
A green monster smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen cranberries, and a whoooole lotta spinach!
After coming back from my workout and hopping in the shower, I made cocoa blueberry buckwheat pancakes.
I topped them off with peanut butter and more blueberries. These were awesome. Buckwheat flour and I are quickly becoming best friends.
A sliced banana.
Roasted brussel sprout, barbecue, and cheddar “cheese” pizza (more on this in a future Friday Favorites post). I ate two more slices after this one! 🙂
Half of a bag of Salt’n Vinegar almonds (absolutely obsessed with these)…
…mixed with some raisins. I love the salty and sweet combination of the two. It is funny to think that I actually love raisins when I used to hate them. It’s crazy how our taste buds can change.
I also ate a sliced apple dipped in some crunchy Nuttzo nut and seed butter and drank an orange La Croix sparkling water (unpictured).
For dinner, I ate some spinach squash fritters (more on these in a future Friday Favorites post, as well!) topped off with a runny dippy egg. SO good!
In the evening I snacked on a veggie/hummus plate…
…and a bowl of strawberries, black grapes (still obsessed with these!), and a Cutie. Is anyone else super excited about the fact that Cuties are back?
I finished the evening off with a giant bowl (it was more than just this in the picture!) of air-popped popcorn. I topped it off with coconut oil spray, sea salt, nutritional yeast, onion powder (if you haven’t added this to popcorn yet, you need to!), curry powder, and dill. Sounds like a strange combination, I know, but I am hooked on it.
And that wraps up a full day of my eats. Have a great Wednesday! I hope you all have short work days like I do and can rest up for a full day of cooking and eating tomorrow :).
