WIAW: Warmer Weather Foods


I’m loving that it’s already Wednesday, how about you?! I think we should always have 4 day work weeks ;)

I debated on which day of my food journal to share with you guys today. I really wanted to share with you my Memorial Day eats but I forgot to snap a bunch of pictures so that didn’t work.

I’m linking up with Jenn and the What I Ate Wednesday Crew to share my food journal from yesterday!


I woke up nice and early on Tuesday and immediately started getting organized for the day.  I drank a glass of water and then poured myself a cup of french vanilla coffee with a splash of milk. I had plenty of time to cook myself breakfast but I was starving, so I resorted to my usual… 2 eggs + extra egg whites, sautéed spinach with olive oil & whole grain toast plus some watermelon. 


I headed to the YMCA shortly after to train some of my clients. They got in some fabulous workouts and everyone was working hard.

I was starving for some reason so I quickly ate a banana


and then had some oatmeal with almond milk & peanut butter.


My lunch came early. I don’t know why I was so hungry yesterday but I couldn’t help but eat! I chose a leftover salad with grilled chicken, peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, & mozzarella cheese. This picture looks a little messy but it was SO tasty. I also had some baby carrots with it.


With my lunch I snacked on a Coconut Chia Bar! I love these little things but I secretly wish they were double the size.


Since this was a day of hunger I knew I needed a snack that would keep me full. Thank goodness for protein shakes right? I had a Vanilla Shakeology with a scoop of peanut butter & a granny smith apple.

Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. On Boot Camp nights I always eat something simple. I had a grilled turkey burger topped with avocado and over some baby spinach and of course a baked Sweet Potato w/ a little butter on the side! There’s something so satisfying about avocado on a turkey burger!! TRY IT!


I wasn’t hungry after class. Normally I would drink a protein shake but I just couldn’t get myself to make one. I ending up cutting up some ripe plantains.


I pan roasted them with a little canola oil and Marc enjoyed them with me.


I also ended up having a couple of my Cookie Dough Protein Bites & some grapes.


I was so excited to watch the first episode of Extreme Weight Loss with Chris Powell last night it’s such a motivating and inspiring show.  However, I didn’t make it up for the last 45 minutes!! I can’t stay up until 11pm on weeknights so I will have to watch the rest on demand. Don’t tell me what the twins look like!

What’s something yummy you ate yesterday? 

Do you like plantains?

  1. This was such an inspiring WIAW! I am just starting to get back in shape after my twin pregnancy and I love seeing how other moms are staying healthy. Thanks!

    • Hi Luna!! Thanks so much. I’m so happy to hear that my food inspired you. I’m not the greatest photographer but all my meals yesterday were quite tasty. Congrats on your twins!

  2. LOVE roasting plantain chips with cinnamon. So addicting! Can’t wait to finally grill out too now that the warm weather is here!

    • Hi Emily! Yum, plantains with cinnamon are delicious. I try to make them once a week but I need to step it up and make them more often because they are so filling and satisfying!

  3. Ah, this is going to sound dumb, but how do you sauté your spinach? I love sautéed spinach, but I have never been able to cook it for myself! Every meal you ate today was something I would eat so I am loving this WIAW! Thank you for sharing all of your delicious eats. :)

    • Hi Julia!! I eat spinach almost every other day with my breakfast because I need the extra iron. It’s so easy to whip together so that’s why I do it for breakfast. I literally put a drizzle of olive oil in a pan on medium heat, throw a few handfuls of spinach in the pan and saute for about 4 minutes. (this allows me to get the rest of my breakfast together) and then I add sea salt, throw a couple of over easy eggs on top and it’s delicious!

  4. Can you believe I’ve never had plantains in my life? I think it’s because I’m not a big fan of bananas so I just assumed I wouldn’t like them. Your plantains look so good though! I might just have to try some!

    • You should definitely give Plantains a try, although they look like bananas they taste totally different. Plantain chips are pretty amazing too and I highly recommend them :) They are great with guacamole!
