Morning! And welcome to another installment of What I Ate Wednesday! Today’s edition actually recaps my eats from Monday. I’ve featured weekend eats the past few times, so today I thought I’d share what I ate on a fairly typical workday.
To start my day I had a delicious new smoothie combo! It was a coconut almond butter smoothie with dates! I used 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk, 1 frozen banana, 1/3 cup old fashioned oats, 2 tbsp almond butter, 2 dates (chopped), and 1 tbsp chia seeds. Heaven.
My mid-morning snack at work was plain greek yogurt topped with some honey sesame almonds from Trader Joe’s. The almonds sweetened it up a bit and gave the snack a nice crunch!
I also had some sesame seed crackers from Whole Foods. Lots of sesame going on that day!
Lunch was a wonderful new quinoa salad. Made with lots of veggies and a variety of spices including curry, chili powder and ginger. Recipe to come! I ate the quinoa salad over a layer of garbanzo beans and topped it with tahini. So good!
I also had some red grapes with lunch. Still loving the grapes.
And for an afternoon snack I had two of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites!
When I got home that evening I had a few pretzels before dinner.
And for dinner I had a big plate of veggies. Roasted veggies, a cauliflower/potato mash, sauerkraut and some melon.
Dessert was a homemade frozen Bailey’s ice cream bar that my Mom made. It was quite wonderful!
