Morning everyone! Time for another addition of What I Ate Wednesday.
I am always up pretty early, I was very satisfied with the fact that I was able to sleep in until 7 over the weekend. Once Monday hits, its like clock work back to waking up at 5.
So, this morning I wasn’t surprised when I was up at 4:30. Spin didn’t start until 5:45, so I just got there super early. Well, not super early since the gym doesn’t open until 5:30… When I left it was still pitch black outside. It feels so weird to have my workout done before the sun even rises! But, I also love it.
When I returned home, it was eating time! Last night I prepared a batch of pancakes to have this morning. A pumpkin and blueberry oat pancake. I haven’t had regular oats in forever!
Oat pancake made with oatmeal, egg whites, a little pumpkin, frozen blueberries, baking powder, stevia, pumpkin pie spice, and flax seeds. Roasted almond butter finished it off.
Sorry for the slightly burnt pancake picture. I realize that’s not the most visually awesome pancake you’ve seen, but regardless it was delicious.
Usually on days that I go to spin I am never ever hungry. I guess the cardio supreses my appetite or something. It’s odd. Anyways, I broke into lunch a while later…
I made another batch of tempeh masala, but this time I added leftover millet instead of the quinoa. This afternoon, I got to looking around and realized I’ve been seriously neglecting some housework. You know the awful stuff like cleaning the edges around the sink and cleaning the faucet and all that silly stuff. I finally did that, but got a serious headache from all those chemicals. I guess I had a headache to start out, but it didn’t help things at all. That type of labor always getting my appetite revving.
A new batch of pumpkin bread (made a little different this time), spread with some raw cashew butter and strawberry slices!
Okay, I think it’s finally time to hang up the strawberries and move on to more seasonal eats, like apples. No complaints here, I love honeycrisp apples!
It’s odd how spin class can make me feel almost normal and housework causes me a lot of hunger…that doesn’t sound right does it?
For dinner I wasn’t really in the mood for much, darn missing appetite again…
I just decided to roll with a simple piece of ezekiel bread topped with mashed avocado and a side of Amy’s low sodium split pea soup…
I’m in need of new dinner recipes I think! I don’t usually like relying on pre made meals, but sometimes you just need something easy!
Now, I’m going to spend a few moments with my family and catch up on a few things I’ve been neglecting!
And I may or may not be enjoying some coconut milk ice cream before bed later:)
What are some of your favorite dinner recipes? Feel free to leave links! I need some inspiration from you all!
Do certain types of exercise leave you with no appetite?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
