I almost decided not to participate in What I Ate Wednesday this week. It’s kind of the same ol’ same ol’, and my eats don’t change that much. And I figure if I’m getting bored of posting what I eat, then you’re probably getting bored of seeing what I ate!
However, this week I decided that I would actually partake in the WIAW party for two reasons. 1) I straight up rocked at eating veggies yesterday. Time to brag about it. And 2) I actually have a recipe for you guys! I know, it’s been a while.
So here’s to it!
Breakfast – 7:30am
Shortly after waking up, I changed into workout clothes, headed downstairs, and made some breakfast before lifting. Today’s, just like the past few days, is three eggs + kale. Kinda boring, yes, but it gets the job done, and it’s easy on my stomach when I’m heading to the gym in 30 minutes to lift. I actually removed the avocado from the eggs after the first bite – I think it was a bad one Don’t worry, though, I more than made up for it during lunch and dinner
Post-workout shake – 9:00am
No picture, but it was 1 c. almond milk, scoop of chocolate protein powder, strawberries, coconut oil, and ice. Yummy! I drank it whilst training a client.
Lunch – 12:30pm
I trained my morning clients, took Niko for a walk, and then showered up and put this lunch together. It’s leftover taco meat in two hardshell tacos, over some red cabbage. I also had avocado, Greek yogurt, and salsa to dress it up.
Snack – 4:30pm
After lunch I had to run some errands – the bank, store, get dog food, etc., and then I came back to work a little bit more on the computer. Hunger knocked, and I answered it with some Hope Foods Lentil dip (still obsessed) and some 34 Degrees crisps.
Dinner – 6:30pm
This is the recipe part! I had a shredded brussels sprouts salad (brussels sprouts shredded in the food processor, tossed with pumpkin seeds and peanut ginger dressing) and topped it with leftover carnitas I made the night before.
Here’s the recipe for the dressing
Peanut Ginger Dressing
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. decaf bhakti chai concentrate (or caf, if you like to roll that way at dinner time)
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Place everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. So good!
Dessert – 9:00pm
For some reason, I wasn’t very hungry last night. Usually I’ll either have a big dinner, or a nighttime snack. Last night’s dinner wasn’t large (compared to my usual dinners,) and I wasn’t hungry afterward either. However, I did snack on one of these right before heading upstairs to bed.
Do you have a hard time eating vegetables throughout the day?
