WIAW: hot days = cold foods


A hot day calls for colder foods! Yesterday the weather was hot & sticky and I leaned towards some colder food choices to keep me cool.


I’m linking up with the What I ate Wednesday crew to share with you my food journal from yesterday!

I woke up around 6am and was a little more tired then usual. I felt like I could’ve slept for another 3 hours! I was so happy Marc had coffee brewing because I knew I needed a little boost. Ava seemed a little sluggish too, she started the morning on the couch drinking some milk!

I whipped up my usual 2 eggs, sautéed spinach with olive oil and a piece of toast. This time my eggs were from a friend who has chickens. Fresh chicken eggs are pretty tasty and you can totally see the difference in the yolk color.


That’s Ava’s hand in the picture… clearly she wanted some of my breakfast!

After training a few clients at the Y, I headed back home to whip up a Chocolate Shakeology with Banana. It was so cold and tasty. I realized I drink things a lot faster when there’s a straw in the mix.


Ava napped earlier then usual and I was able to complete a solid hour and 1/2 of computer work. It was great.

For lunch I had leftover Orange glazed chicken in a salad with tomatoes, mushrooms, gorgonzola cheese and Balsamic Fig dressing! It was perfect. I also had a leftover sweet potato because I was craving some carbs.


Also some watermelon… (not a great picture)


My afternoon snack was an Granny Smith apple with 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter. YUM!


It seems like we have been eating Chicken Sausage at least once a week lately and I’m not complaining. Al Fresco’s chicken sausage are so tasty and soo simple to prepare. Tonight we mixed sliced sausage with Brown Rice, peppers & eggplant!! This was a great pre-boot camp meal.


After Boot Camp I had a few Cookie Dough Protein Bites and a bowl of green grapes!


 It was a great day of foods and I enjoyed everything I ate! Now I’m off to teach Group Power class and get my sweat on.

What’s something yummy you ate yesterday?

  1. Farm fresh eggs are always the best! I’ve also been craving lots of fresh fruits and veggies (oh, and ice cream…) lately due to the summer heat.

  2. Ahh I love apple and peanut butter – such a great snack!
    I had some great cookie dough ice cream yesterday – definitely love the cooler foods when it’s hot out!
