Happy Wednesday and more specifically, What I Ate Wednesday, although this is really a what I ate on Tuesday type of recap. Yesterday’s meals were really fun and ridiculously good, so why not show you what I enjoyed for my meals and snacks. Let it be known that this was an active rest day for me, so on days that I don’t have a heavy workout, I try to be as healthy as possible, while still enjoying fun treats that don’t leave me feeling deprived. Before my work day started, I did get in a 3 mile walk, but that’s about it. On to the food! I realize that I ate a lot of processed carbs, and it is my goal to incorporate a banana with peanut butter for one of my snacks instead of peanut butter on a type of bread (I do this practically every day except this one, of course, ha!).
Breakfast 8 am
My go-to 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 46 grams of liquid egg whites, topped with maple syrup and 1 tbsp of peanut butter.
Late-Morning Snack 11:30 am
Egg, bacon and cheese sandwich, on a hamburger bun. I’m almost positive that this snack has to be a reoccurring snack in my work day, because bacon at work = happiness.
Lunch 1:45 pm
2.5 oz of sweet potato, 4 oz of grilled chicken from the BBQ over the weekend (omgsogood!), and steamed green beans.
Afternoon Snack 3:30 pm
A Joseph’s Lavish bread wrap with 1.5 tbsp of peanut butter. I fold it up into a wrap, but this is what it looks like when I’m making it!
A tuna wrap mixed with sweet relish in a Joseph’s Lavish wrap. Delicious and filling, just what I want to keep me from feeling like I need to eat “more.” Adding the relish adds a sweet kick to the wrap, which is what I crave in the evening. Sweet cures my evening cravings… just weird that my “sweet” came from relish and not chocolate or peanut butter haha!
A greek yogurt with 1 tbsp peanut butter. More sweet to end my night!
And that’s everything that I ate yesterday!
Do you eat differently on a day of no physical activity?
What cures your sweet tooth?
