Good Morning! Happy Wednesday!
Specifically, what I ate Wednesday.
First off, thanks for the wonderful comments on yesterdays post. You all have such wisdom and provided me with extra thinking to do!
My body has been weird today, I have been feeling way more hungry lately. Along with the thirst and tiredness I was talking about last week. It’s for sure odd for me to experience.
I’m still eating pretty healthy and focusing on clean foods, just more hungry…and tired…and thirsty. Maybe this has something to do with decreasing exercise and increasing calories? My body possible recovering? Who the heck knows for sure.
With that being said let’s get to my meals.
Breakfast – 7:
After an easier workout, I enjoyed a bowl of overnight buckwheat cereal, with stevia, cinnamon, banana, chia seeds, and topped with peanut flour paste.
These summer days are passing by way too quickly. I can’t believe it’s already August. Crazy talk.
I’m definitely feeling like a grandma over here. The night time has consisted of me looking at the clock, unable to believe its already night time because it’s still light outside.
Summer confuses me. I like that I’m greeted to the rising sun in the morning, but it also makes it harder to go to bed at night. And that’s not so fun when you wake up at 5:30.
Anyways, I ran to Starbucks to pick up a grande americano, per usual. Payed with my gold card, baby.
11:30 – Lunch:
When lunch rolled around, I was craving some more breakfast for lunch type foods.
I baked a zucchini in a little coconut oil, and added in 1/2 a red pepper filled with 1 egg for some protein. Had with a side of avocado sauce (avocado, nutritional yeast, dill). The egg stuffed pepper was SO good.
I had planned on making this cuter than it looks in the photo. The egg kind of broke open when I cooked it. Oops. At least it was still delicious.
Later, I went out to pick up a few extra groceries and brought a sliced apple along. They make a good snack when you are on the go, they aren’t messy and are small. So, they’re easy to bring along. Win.
Snack – 3:
Strawberries were layered on top after.
Blended cottage cheese, a little greek yogurt, and 1 tablespoon cashew butter. The strawberries add a summery touch to this bowl.
Even though it was scorching hot out, I was craving something warm for dinner. I had an extra spaghetti squash, that was looking like it was on its last leg, so I cooked it up along with some other veggies for a filling dinner.
Dinner – 5:15:
Spaghetti squash, leftover zucchini, spinach, marinara sauce, turkey burger, and goat cheese.
Snack – 8:
A bowl of plain coconut milk ice cream
Okay, I know the coconut ice cream may not seem like a big deal, but for me it is. It’s the first “unclean food” I’ve eaten in…I’ll say 3 years! I do indulge in alcohol sometimes over the weekends, but other than that this is the first food indulgence I’ve experienced.
It felt good to “allow” myself to eat this snack, but I can’t say I felt comfortable the entire time. I was definitely hesitant to even scoop this into my bowl. However, I did it and survived. Who would’ve thought?;)
Right now I’m just trying to go with this hunger, without getting too freaked out over it.
Hope you all are having an amazing day!
What do you usually make for lunch? Do you enjoy leftovers?
