What I Ate Wednesday #27
Happy ‘First’ Wednesday of 2013!! I hope you had a great New Year! Did you do something fun? The boyfriend and I stayed in. He got food poisoning on Sunday from some ham he had eaten and I was feeling like a cold was coming on. Needless to say we didn’t do much since we were both trying to “get well”. We got some pizza to go and ate that while watching some movies. Later on I got some frozen yogurt! In my opinion, movies, pizza and froyo was a pretty good way to ring out 2012!
But now that the holidays are over it is time to get focused on 2013 nutrition and fitness goals! I have to say that the first day of the year started off on the right foot too! I got a nice 4 mile run in when I woke up. Then the boyfriend and I had a killer back and biceps workout later on. The rest of the day was spent relaxing (very important for the mental health )! Throughout the day, I made sure to get in lots of fresh veggies and clean healthy meals! It’s crazy how just a few short days of eating sweets can really twist your taste buds! By the time I woke up yesterday morning, I didn’t want to go near anything sweet! I am even having a hard time baking because my appetite is not craving a single sweet food! Ugh! In the mean time, here are some of the yummy meals I enjoyed yesterday!
Egg and egg white omelet with some sauteed brussel sprouts, avocado, clementine oranges and greek yogurt
I ate this before we lifted. If you haven’t tried this flavor I suggest you run out to the store and buy one NOW!!! AMAZING!!!
I forgot to take a picture of my post workout shake, but it was scoop of vanilla protein powder, some orange juice and a banana! (This was even an overkill on the sweets!)
A salad with butter lettuce, avocado, portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, feta, tuna and coconut vinegar with a BIG bowl of roasted kabocha!!! Oh yes!
Roasted spaghetti squash with meatballs, zucchini, mushrooms, tomato sauce, ricotta and Parmesan cheese
Before bed I made protein pudding with Vega Berry protein, ricotta and coconut milk. I froze it for 30 minutes before eating it and then I topped it with cherries and some slivered almonds (not pictured – I took the pic before I froze it and added toppings)
