Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
I’m working from home this week, which means I have way more time to cook. Yesterday, I had the usual for breakfast (almond butter and strawberries on P28) and morning snack (Greek yogurt with blueberries and granola) so I won’t bore you with pictures
For lunch, I made turkey meatloaf muffins and a kale salad with carrots, yellow peppers, peanuts, oil and brown sugar (which, I discovered, is the only thing that will get me to chew and swallow raw kale; I’ll stick to my usual spinach salad from now on).
In the afternoon, I dropped in on my sister. I was going bonkers at home by myself so I brought some work to her house. While there, I tried these amazing Flamous Falafel Chips from Whole Foods.
I usually stay away from what I consider organic junk food but these are actually pretty decent. They aren’t too high in calories (123 calories for 10 chips), I recognized all of the ingredients and they have some decent nutritional value. Pair them with hummus for a yummy afternoon snack.
For dinner, I cooked walnut and paprika shrimp with soba noodles.
After dinner, I went to kickboxing. Remember that class I really didn’t want to go to last Thursday? Well, I forced myself to go and ended up having a really great time. So much so that I was actually excited to go again last night. When I got home, I had a banana with peanut butter for my post-workout snack.
This was probably one of my better days of eating in a long time. My diet hasn’t been terrible but after two long weekends in a row (I took Monday off and went to Wonderland), I definitely feel like I’ve been indulging at a slightly higher rate than usual. It was nice to have a full day of healthy, unprocessed eats.
Happy WIAW and thanks to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting.
