What I Ate Wednesday #38 – – Feeling Like A Bottomless Pit


What I Ate Wednesday #38

Feeling Like A Bottomless Pit

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week! Remember last weeks post? Well, my week has been so crazy, I have been relying a little bit more on bars because they are the easiest thing for me to throw in my bag! Luckily, I made a few new protein bar recipes this past weekend (knowing my week would be busy) that I will be sharing with you soon! They are soooo yummy! ;) I also received 2 boxes of Quest Cookie Dough Bars in the mail on Saturday and I CAN’T STOP EATING THEM!!! Ahhhhh!! Literally, they are they best bars ever! If you haven’t tried them, I suggest you do so now!! The boyfriend thinks every Quest bar is disgusting (he just doesn’t like the texture), but I made him try one of these this weekend. Let’s just say, I shouldn’t have….he LOVES them!! Now, I have to share my stash! ;)

So, on top of my week being insanely busy, my appetite has also been uncontrollable! Last week I started running again. This is the first time back running since the end of January when I felt some hip pain after the marathon. I did 3 slow miles on Wednesday and Thursday and then 6 miles on Saturday and Sunday. (I took Monday and Tuesday off). Let’s just say the running has put my appetite into extreme overdrive and I CAN’T STOP EATING!! Oh my goodness! I increased my meal sizes AND threw an extra meal/snack in there the last 2 days! It’s crazy! Hence the need for the bars….they are a great source of fuel for me! I know eventually it will balance back out, but let me tell you, it’s like my body thinks it hasn’t ever been fed a morsel of food! The joys of being a runner! ;)

So, with that being said, let’s take a look at all the food I ate yesterday! I hope you enjoy! :)

Meal #1

Before yoga I wanted some “brain fuel” ;) so I had this! Raspberry Noosa, a new protein bar (which works perfectly with the raspberry yogurt…hint hint) and a banana!

Meal #2

After yoga I flew home (starving) and had a sliced pear, greek yogurt, half a slice of a protein bar and some zucchini bread pancakes (the recipe still needs help! haha)

Meal #3

Next up was an egg white and avocado wrap with brussels sprouts and baby carrots (and a dollop of Steel’s ketchup)

Meal #4

After I was done lifting I was starving (no shocker) so I quickly ate this! Kabocha squash with cinnamon greek yogurt and a quest bar! I don’t know what I was thinking….haha but this is all I was craving when I was done working out!

Meal #5

A salad (craving veggies after that last meal lol) with lettuce, tomato, roasted red peppers, carrots, avocado, no salt turkey breast, cottage cheese and some Vega Parm that I showed you here! That stuff is amazing btw!

Meal #6

Dinner was a turkey breast cutlet with balsamic marinade, avocado, steamed carrots and oven roasted asparagus and summer squash topped with the Vega Parm ‘cheese’ PLUS a gigantic serving of kabocha squash! That thing barely fit in the bowl!!!

Meal #7

Last but not least was my normal pre bad casein dessert but I threw some 65% Cacao chocolate chips on there for fun and yumminess! ;) Give the body what it craves! ;)
