First episode of ‘What I Ate Wednesday’! This will probably be a post I do every Wednesday on what I ate throughout the day. Most people might not be interested, but I always find it interesting what other people are eating who are trying to live a healthy and active lifestyle. It helps me stay on track of my eating habits and gives me some inspiration as well. Luckily I work from home on Wednesdays so I don’t have to prep all my food to eat at the office.
Breakfast was around 8am and was sautéed spinach, an egg and some egg whites, avocado, and sliced tomato. I eat eggs almost every morning, and I don’t ever really get tired of them. And obviously hot sauce, because I put it on almost everything. I also had this oatmeal fritter that I am testing out for the blog. Needs a little more work.
I went to CrossFit at noon so my pre-workout snack was some frozen banana and a protein fudge ball. The WOD was a running WOD, so I had the banana to give me a good boost of energy (or that’s what I told myself haha).
The workout was good…5 rounds of an 800m run. Each round was capped at 7 minutes, so you have 7 minutes to run 800m, if you finished before the 7 minutes that was your rest time. Your score was your slowest round. My slowest round was 3:01 and I think the fastest was maybe 2:50 or so, not sure. I finally got to eat lunch around 2:45. I made a wrap with leftover tuna steak from dinner the night before, a tahini sauce, cucumber, carrots, and some mustard inside a collard green. These are probably going to be my new favorite things to wrap stuff up in. So good. And I had some raw cauliflower with hummus and mustard on the side. My favorite brand of tahini is Soom – if you are looking to try it, use this link to save 10%.
Around 4:30 I made a protein shake. It had homemade cashew milk, spinach, chocolate protein, frozen berries, and avocado. I knew it wasn’t going to be a pretty color, but it was tasty so that is all that matters.
I usually drink my smoothies out of my Vitamix. One less dish to wash in the end.
Dinner was eaten in about 5 minutes because I got caught up trying to figure stuff out on here and then realized it was 6:30 and had to be at a dodgeball playoff game at 7. We won the first round and then lost in the semi-finals 🙁 but it was super fun and we rocked the first set of games. Thankfully the bf had roasted some butternut squash and I had put some chicken in the crockpot earlier in the day. I added some steamed spinach for some greens. And hot sauce.
After dodgeball I had a snack of some Greek yogurt with cinnamon, chocolate almond butter, and another oatmeal fritter. I figure the faster I eat them, the faster I can test the recipe again. Makes perfect sense.
Oh and I had already ate some an then realized I had to take a picture. I guess I need to get used to this whole thing. Roughly 1400 calories – 141g protein, 110g carbs, and 45 grams fat – and almost a gallon of water. That’s it for my eats.
