I’m joining in with What I Ate Wednesday for the first time. This is everything I ate yesterday. I realized I could never be someone who blogs their food every day because I pretty much eat the same stuff day after day!
I have the same thing for breakfast every morning, overnight oats. I use the recipe from Peanut Butter Runner and add about a tablespoon of peanut butter and a tablespoon of Trader Joe’s reduced sugar strawberry preserves. Lately I’ve been wishing it was saltier. I always eat this once I get to work around 9am.
Around 11am I was ready to gnaw off my arm so I had a fruit and nut trek mix granola bar from Trader Joe’s. These things are so good, only have normal ingredients, and are 140 calories each!
Finally, lunch! Around 1pm I whipped out my lunch, this is Eat, Live, Run’s favorite salad. I followed her recipe exactly, except I added grape tomatoes because they’ve been good lately. I also mix the dressing together beforehand so it’s like a creamy dressing. This has become my go-to salad.
Drank an entire bottle of Trader Joe’s lime seltzer in the afternoon. On a normal day I drink 3-4 of the Nalgene bottle you see behind the seltzer bottle. I am a water-drinking machine.
Around 2pm I had a square of this intense orange dark chocolate bar. I’m not a fan. It tastes good, but the pieces of orange and almond slivers are weird.
Around 3pm I had 10 peanut-butter filled pretzels. Normally I buy them from Trader Joe’s, but I forgot so this is a brand from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I think I might like these better.
Around 4pm I had an orange. It wasn’t very good.
When I got home from work, around 6pm, I had a small handful of chocolate chips (x2).
On the way back from my run I stopped to buy a coconut water with pineapple. I just recently realized I liked the pineapple flavor, it was very refreshing.
Dinner was a turkey caesar burger from Sweet Tooth Sweet life, steamed green beans, and mini roasted potatoes (with way too much salt, oops). (This is a salad plate, btw.) I tried to make the burgers last night, but the ground chicken I bought Friday, which had a sell by date of 5/23, smelled like rotten eggs when I opened it. Google (and my common sense) told me I should throw it out. Trader Joe’s only had ground turkey so I made these tonight with the turkey and I thought they were great.
Dessert was some blackberries, strawberries, and two squares of Trader Joe’s dark chocolate, caramel, and sea salt bar. I love that thing.
And that’s everything I ate. Besides the very, very, very small piece of brownie I had at work. Someone made them and I wanted to try them, they tasted good but had a really weird consistency. I realized as I was writing this that all three of my main meals featured recipes from bloggers! I get nearly all my recipes from blogs and I’m almost never disappointed.
