WIAW: Simple foods


I had originally planned to share my meals from Sunday but after a failed attempt to take pictures of my lunch and dinner I had to switch to Mondays food journal. On Monday I actually managed to snap pictures of everything I ate. All my food choices were simple but nutritious!

I am linking up with the What I Ate Wednesday crew to share my “eats” from Monday.


After a weekend of being sick with a nasty cold, I woke up pretty groggy Monday morning. I didn’t take any medicine the night before and I wish I did because I slept pretty poorly. When I woke up I was still congested but I mentally new I needed to get going and power through the day. I chugged a TALL glass of water and had 1/2 cup of coffee with a splash of 1% milk. I quickly sautéed up some spinach, 2 eggs and a piece of whole grain toast and then headed out the door at 7am to teach Group power.


I went a little lighter with my weight choices for the workout in hopes that I wouldn’t make my cold any worse and I still managed to work up good sweat.

I refueled after with a Protein shake, a banana


and some oatmeal with peanut butter.


Ava was still really sick so I was thankful that my brother was able to watch her all day while I worked. I quickly stopped home after class before heading back to teach my Fit For Life class. I had a group of 19 people which was fabulous but by the end of the class my voice was starting to go!

I chugged LOTS of water after class and then ate a big salad with BBQ grilled chicken, red cabbage, plus tomato & cucumber salad with italian dressing. I also ate a granny smith apple and a small baked potato. I have been really into lunch time salads these days. With the temps being high over 90 degrees the rest of the week I am assuming I will be eating a lot more salads these next few days.


(I forgot to snap a picture of my baked potato with butter!)

After spending about 2 hours on the computer doing coaching work I made a quick Vanilla Shakeology with frozen strawberries and peanut butter. It was like eating a PB & Jelly sandwich through a straw ;)


Ava had her own smoothie (Strawberries, 1% Milk & Ice), she loved it!


Dinner was Grilled Dijon Chicken Breast with green beans & a baked sweet potato, very simple!


I still had an appetite around 830pm so I ate a greek yogurt topped with lots of blueberries and some almonds!


I enjoyed all my food choices today!

What is something yummy you ate yesterday?

Do you find you go through phases of eating the same thing over any over?

  1. Hope you’re all feeling better soon!

    Everything looks delish – I could eat runny eggs every day.

    • Thanks Laura! I’m feeling way better today. It’s hard to not get sick when Ava’s sick, she’s in my face all day long!!

      I’m slightly obsessed with runny eggs. I try to eat them every day and when I have scrambled eggs I always get mad at myself because the runny eggs have so much more flavor!!! :)

  2. I definitely go through phases of eating the same things. I’m currently on a Greek yogurt kick!! :)

    I hope you feel better soon!

    • I’m feeling so much better thanks! Greek yogurt is so great in the summer time, I’ve been eating a lot of it myself :)

  3. I too, am on a Greek yogurt and blueberry kick! Have you tried Siggi’s? It’s my favorite!

    • I haven’t tried Siggi’s but I’ve heard about it. I’m going to buy it next time I’m at the store, thanks for the suggestion! :)

  4. We are also sitting in the 90’s and it’s been smoothies and salads all day every day here too. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

    • Yes smoothies & salads are making the appearance a lot in our house. It just makes sense. I’m literally trying to avoid turning on the stove as much as possible!
