Here we are again! Another Wednesday has arrived and in honor of What I Ate Wednesday I’m going to share with you my meals from yesterday!
Breakfast was pretty standard. I had a piece of whole grain bread and almond butter. And a peach. My first of the season! I’ve had really bad luck with peaches so far this summer, I’ve bought them a couple of different times from different stores and all have been pretty mealy. I end up throwing them away. Today was the best quality one so far so I was excited to actually get to eat it! Do you know if there is a way to tell from the outside of a peach if it’ll be good on the inside?
Midmorning at work I had my lovely rice cake for a snack.
I also had some heirloom cherry tomatoes and bell peppers. I got the tomatoes at a farmer’s market this weekend, they were wonderful!
When lunch time rolled around I pulled out the salad I brought along. This was romaine (I think), black beans, quinoa, raw zucchini, red pepper hummus, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. This was delightful!
I also had some cantelope with lunch, yum yum.
Rice crackers were my snack that afternoon.
Along with a couple of pieces of candied ginger. Some of those pieces were spicy!
When I got home from work I was a little hungry and had a few spoonfuls of this nut butter. Delish!
Then I was off to the gym. I took my first step aerobics class today. It was amazing! I had no idea what I was doing half the time, but the ladies in the class and the instructor were really nice and encouraging. They said I’ll get the hang of the steps if I keep coming! I got such a good workout in even though I was just trying to catch on, so I’ll definitely go back. I forgot how good it feels to really sweat! I haven’t been exercising on a regular basis lately, minus going for long walks, so this felt wonderful!
I got home and made myself a lovely sampler plate for dinner. It featured boiled red potatoes and basil from the farmer’s market, some fresh mozzarella, blueberries, a carrot and a glorious piece (or two) of another farmer’s market find, sweet and spicy bread!
I usually snack on something later at night, and yesterday it was a few handfuls of dark chocolate chips while watching an episode of Chasing Life. Love that show!
Have a great day all!
