What I Ate Wednesday

It’s been a while since I shared a what I ate Wednesday with you so I figured today I’d share yesterday’s meals and workouts with you! You can also check out a bunch of other what I ate Wednesday blogs by going to Jenn’s blog here. Hope you all get some wonderful meal ideas!


I started my day with an apple before my workout then went to the gym for a strength workout.

I came home and did T25 for a little extra cardio then followed my workout up with a coffee protein shake. I simply added vanilla whey, unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, cold coffee, and ice to a blender and mixed.

Lunch was spaghetti squash with ground turkey, diced tomatoes, and red pepper flakes. Since I don’t often have time to cook during the day my Sunday meal prep was a lifesaver!

Snack was a favorite of mine….two rice cakes with natural peanut butter and cinnamon.

Dinner was crockpot chicken with shredded cabbage, carrots, and coconut aminos. Again meal prep saved me from having cereal for dinner.

And my last meal was my healthiest meal of the day! Shakeology with almond milk and ice and topped with sprinkles because they make me happy 😉 Cured my sweet tooth too and kept me full all night.

What I’m Eating as of Late…

It’s been a really long time since I’ve done a What I Ate Wednesday post so I wanted to update you on some of the meals I’ve been loving as of late.

Pre workout snacks. Something small before my workout that is filled with protein and low in fat. Two of my favorites are egg white muffins and these pumpkin protein bars

Crockpot chicken and sweet potatoes with cinnamon and peanut butter. I could continue to eat this meal every meal and probably be quite happy with it

Quest bars

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week. Welcome back to another What I ate Wednesday, hosted by Jenn from Peas and Crayons. We’re celebrating love your veggies month but posting some of meals from the past week I’m noticing I am lacking a bit in the veggie department. Apparently I’ve been on fruit overload this week and I’m thinking maybe I need to balance it out a bit with some more veggies. As usual this is not a day’s meals but rather a collection of some of my favorites from the past week.

If you read last Wednesday’s post you might remember I was doing a bit of an experiment with not meal prepping. I learned a ton last week that I will definitely share in detail more but for now I feel like I am back on track with normal, intuitive eating. For me this means a little prep of basics, like veggies and protein, but at the same time I’m not making full meals ahead. This way I can go along with cravings and hunger signals and not worry about a “plan”. I also still have veggies prepped so I actually eat them throughout the week. If I don’t cook them ahead, I know I won’t eat them!

Sometimes it can be really helpful to take a step back and look at what you’re doing. Taking away all my planning was really eye opening and definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. Even though I’m a nutrition coach, I’m always learning and this was just another example of new things to learn. Onto my meals…

Here is what I prepped: carrots, sweet potato fries, zucchini, and hard boiled eggs.

eggs

Last week I wasn’t satisfied with breakfast at all and I knew eggs would fill me up but never wanted to cook them. I took that as a sign and prepped a bunch of hard boiled eggs to have on hand for the week. If I want them for breakfast great, but if not they make great snacks too.

Easiest lunch ever. Chicken sausage and pineapple. There were carrots too.

Which do you prefer: Fruits or vegetables??? I love fruit but vegetables, not so much 😉
