What I Ate Wednesday

So I thought it would be fun to join in on the popular blogging series, "What I Ate Wednesday."  I get bored easily with blogs that show 3 meals a day, everyday, but I find it fascinating to see what others eat daily every now and then.  So here we go!

(I apologize in advance for blurry pictures... often when I am ready to eat I am READY TO EAT and have little patience to spend 5 minutes or more taking photos of the food that I want in my belly!  This is normal, right?  Probably not.  Whatever.)

French Press Coffee!  It's been so long since I've french pressed that I forgot how DELICIOUS it is!  So much better than drip brewed coffee, but takes just as little time!  Awesome!

Breakfast (pre-workout)... whole wheat toast with a tablespoon of sunflower nut butter.  So delicious.

Second breakfast... smoothie with milk, dark chocolate dreams, frozen banana, spinach and vanilla whey protein.  Hubz loved it too!
(5 P+)

Lunch... Salad made with romaine, spinach, cabbage and carrots.  Topped with Skinny Taste's Egg Salad.  Never thought to put egg salad on top of a salad but it was delicious!  Next time though, I'll either cut down on the greens or add a little more egg salad (or maybe just some dijon mustard?).  It just needed a little more dressing.  Also, part-skim string cheese and a pluot, my new favorite fruit!

Not pictured...  Arnie palmer from work, heavy on the tea, light on the lemonade.

Supper... Fish tacos!  Obviously I was so hungry and excited to eat that I forgot to take a picture before chowing!  I used this recipe for the fish (we used tilapia) and topped it with cabbage, tomatoes, cilantro and guacamole, all wrapped up in a low-carb, high-fiber whole wheat tortilla.  We both loved them!

 I finished supper off with some edamame topped with sea salt... one of the best snacks ever!

So that's what I ate today!  Overall satisfying, delicious and healthy, and that makes me happy and proud of myself!  And yes, if you didn't notice, I'm back on the Weight Watchers bandwagon and it feels oh so good.  I don't know why it can be so easy to forget how good eating well and working out makes me feel.  I felt on top of the world today!



  1. Mmm, I need to make some fish tacos! They look so good!

  2. Wow healthy day! I should do this on my blog too cause it will also encourage me to chose healthier options :) I haven't had, nor have I found pluots. I heard they are delish, have to try!
