I am trying to keep up with these What I ate Wednesday posts because I have received a lot of positive feedback from them and it helps me to continue to eat healthy each day!
Sometimes its hard to track everything I put in my mouth but I try to take as many pictures as I can throughout the day!
Today I am linking up with Jenn to share my food journal from Monday.
I had an action packed day, but I still managed to choose some healthy simple foods to eat.
I woke up at 5:50am Monday and I was pretty hungry first thing. I chugged a tall glass of water and started sipping on some coffee as I got my breakfast prepared and got Ava her cup of milk. I made some delicious scrambled eggs with spinach & zucchini with 2 pieces of whole grain toast. (the veggies were leftover from the weekend)
I taught Group Power at 730am and I came home super sweaty after class. I refueled with a Chocolate Shakeology, a banana, & a large spoonful or 2 of Peanut butter. I love this snack. I didn’t combine them all in the blender because I ate the banana right away.. my hunger took over.
Shortly after I finished my snack I headed back to the YMCA to teach my second class of the day which was my senior class. It was a lot of fun and we had a big group of people as usual.
For lunch I chose some leftovers from Bella Nonna (which we had on the weekend) I had Chicken Marsala with mushrooms & cauliflower plus some roasted potatoes. There’s quite a few veggies missing from this picture… oops!
I also had a granny smith apple with it.
From 1230-2pm I did computer work while Ava napped. The time passed pretty quickly but I managed to get a lot done!
I wasn’t starving in the afternoon but I chose a small snack because I knew I wouldn’t make it until dinner. I had a lettuce wrap with turkey, tomato & avocado plus baby carrots on the side.
I ate a simple and light dinner, BBQ Pulled Chicken, green beans & a sweet potato with a little butter. I subbed a 630pm Group Power class so this was the perfect fuel before the workout.
After Group Power I was officially spent. I needed a shower badly. I didn’t have a huge appetite after class, but I decided I needed something small so I had a 1/2 of a Quest bar and a bowl of frozen raspberries plus a handful of plantain chips!
It was a delicious day of eats!
