How is everyone this morning? Me? I am loving today so far! The kids are off to a day at Summer Camp so I get a half day to do as I please. What am I going to do with all that free time? I don’t know….the possibilities are endless! A good workout is definitely in order but after that I am thinking complete downtime sounds good. After dropping them off I will probably come home, workout up a nice sweat, then put my feet up for a bit, maybe download a new book for my Nook and have a little “Me” time!! Yep sounds good to me!
Welcome to my 2nd edition of “What I Ate Wednesday”.
I have to admit, there are a couple things I ate today that I didn’t photograph so I will just disclose those upfront.
- 5 or 6(I lost count)gummy worms. I took my kids to see Brave(a great movie by the way) and forgot my phone at home.
- A couple handfuls of Quaker Oatmeal Squares. These are dangerous but thankfully my kids love them too so I won’t be the only one digging in!!
Now for the foods that I did photograph. Here we go!!
Overnight Oats. You saw these on my blog yesterday but they are good enough to be seen a 2nd time!!
I ate this fairly late in the morning and because it was so filling, I was able to hold off on a morning snack.
By the time lunch rolled around my tummy was starting to growl. I knew I wanted a salad because the one from my lunch on Monday really hit the spot. As I was gathering my salad ingredients, I noticed some left over quinoa and broccoli from last night. I added them right into my salad and it was FABULOUS!! Quinoa was a great addition. I also added about a TBSP of Greek Vinigarette after the photo was taken.
My sweet tooth started kicking in after I ate my salad so I satisfied it with a small piece of dark chocolate. How I stopped at one, I don’t know. Oh yes, I do. I was running around like a mad woman trying to get us out of the house on time so we wouldn’t be late for the movie. I wasn’t fast enough and we ended up with the seats close to the front. At least it was the very back row of the front seats. See, I am an optimist 😉
Since I only indulged in a few little gummy worms at the movie I was ready to fill my belly with some real food. I whipped up a small bowl of Trader Joe’s plain Greek yogurt, added some frozen blueberries, sweetened it with a bit of honey and topped it with
crack Quaker Oat Squares.
This is also when a couple extra handfuls of my new favorite cereal was consumed. Sigh.
Nachos, baby!!! I topped some Trader Joe’s tortilla chips with lean ground sirloin, blacked beans, colby jack cheese, tomatoes and salsa verde. I REALLY wanted to go back for another big plate full but I didn’t. That would have been a bad choice and I am all about trying to make better choices these days. At least until 4th of July!! Not that nachos were exactly a GOOD choice. Oh well.
Enjoy your day, guys!! I am off to do the same 🙂
Do you have any good book recommendations for me to download on my Nook?
Do you prefer sweet or salty snacks?
