WIAW: Meat & Potatoes


I really enjoy posting my food journal for What I ate WednesdayIt holds me accountable for what I am eating and it also motivates me to eat healthy. I also find that I try to make my meals interesting and creative for you guys.

That leads me to breakfast! You would be proud of me, I steered away from my over easy eggs! I made Marc and I scrambled eggs with spinach and I topped it with Fresh Tomatoes & Avocados with a piece of Rudi’s gluten free toast. UM, Delicious! I got hooked on avocado and eggs recently and if you haven’t tried the combo you really need to.


I also had some of my homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee… I love it.

My mid morning snack was a banana and a Purium L.O.V.E Shake. Again, this filled me right up.


Yesterday was kind of a warmer weather day here, so I wanted something cold for lunch. I got a salad to go from Arcuri’s. It had grilled chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, gorgonzola, and their delicious house italian dressing. I’m a huge fan of this salad and believe it or not, it is too big to finish! Yay for leftovers.


In the afternoon I took Cooper to the dog park to run around. I enjoy taking him there to mix up his exercise. Sometimes our walks aren’t so exciting. Cooper was the only dog there so I ran around with him, we played fetch with a frisbee and he tired himself out. When I got back I ate an orange which was so refreshing, and I had a small oven baked sweet potato that was leftover from Sunday. Weird combo but it was satisfying.

My snack was halloween friendly with orange colors!

If you haven’t already figured out by now, I am a meat and potatoes girl. Literally I could eat a potato every day of my life and not get sick of them. Dinner was Al Fresco Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, Peppers, Onions & Potatoes. When ever we use sausage, I usually choose Al Fresco chicken sausage. They are tasty & healthy!


I made the potatoes separately so that Ava could enjoy them too, she actually ended up liking the chicken sausage, so next time I will throw the potatoes in the mix!


Ava thinks it’s funny to feed Cooper her leftovers!

After Boot Camp I opted for a Chocolate Whey Protein Shake. I also snacked on some plantain chips. :)

  1. LOVE avocado and eggs! Pretty much have it at least twice a week. I like to top my roasted veggies and chicken sausage with an over medium egg then sliced avocado. It’s the bomb!
