What I Ate Wednesday #14


What I Ate Wednesday #14

Happy Wednesday! We have reached the middle of the week already! I don’t know about you, but I feel like this week is flying by! I went out and bought my fall scented candles yesterday like I said I would! :) I can’t even describe to you how happy that made me! Between the yummy chocolate recipe I had baking in the oven and the pumpkin spice candles burning, the house smelled amazing! (Yes, I was hinting that there is a chocolate recipe on the horizon!) But not only did the house smell nice, the weather outside was crisp and when I walked outside yesterday morning, there was a hint of fall in the air! I can feel apple picking getting closer and closer! And boy, do I have some awesome fall recipes to share with you!

But, until then we are going to talk about the yummy food that I ate yesterday for today’s W.I.A.W post! It may seem like a lot of meals/food, but remember, I am gearing up for my marathon in only a few short weeks (Sept 30th). So, if you follow me on instagram then you read last week how I slowly increase my carbs beginning a few weeks before race day instead of just carb loading a few days before. This way my body has time to slowly adjust. I try to get most of my carbs from veggies (as you will see). I was having more grains last week and it kind of threw my stomach out of whack, so it’s back to the veggies! This seems to be working much better for me! :)

Meal #1

Bet you want to know what this is??!! Recipe will be posted tomorrow….and let me tell you, it was AMAZING!!! WOW! I will give you a hint…Apples and Cinnamon….

Meal #2

Crustless Quiche (recipe will be posted soon!), with half an avocado, sweetened ricotta and some goji berries!

Meal #3

Post Workout ‘Cherries & Cream Milk Shake’! Yes, there is a recipe coming for this one too!

Meal #4

Powerbowl: ricotta, kale, roasted Brussels sprouts, chicken breast, hemp seeds and nutritional yeast! Yummy!

Meal #5

2 brown rice cakes with peanut butter and sweetened ricotta

Meal #6

BIG SALAD: butter lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, grilled zucchini, avocado, ricotta, ground beef (96/4%). Need those veggies and the iron from the meat before my long run!

Meal #7

Dessert: sweetened ricotta, flax, cacao nibs, shredded coconut and cherries in a bowl! Yummy! :)


This month we are also talking about the good habits we would like to create. Last week I said I wanted to work on maintaining balance in my life. So far, I think I have been doing a great job. I have spent more time with the boyfriend and baking, which were 2 areas that seemed to be falling short because both him and I were so busy! I also want to start incorporating a bit more time to read. Not blogs, lol, but actual books. I think this will be easier with the cooler weather coming because I won’t be itching to get outside as much!
I will update you next week and let you know how it goes!
