Happy Wednesday everyone! Actually, I’m writing this on Tuesday night, which is a first for me! I always write my blog posts in the evening, then publish them immediately, but I’m thinking of creating a new posting schedule once school starts so I’m giving the evening writing/AM publishing a try for today.
I’m sure it goes without saying then that these are Tuesday’s eats. (Oh, and of course be sure to check out Peas and Crayons, Jen’s blog, for more on WIAW!)
Breakfast – Cinnamon raisin English muffin with butter + jelly, topped with two eggs; Tazo Awake tea
I mentioned in Monday’s post that, while I love English muffins, they don’t really keep me full for a long time. In an effort to fix this problem, I added the two eggs to make a sweet and savory breakfast sandwich.
AM Snack – Mango Chobani
Mango is one of my favorite Chobani flavors, but I’m partial to all of the 2% variety!
Lunch – Leftover pasta + sausage from Monday night’s dinner
This probably wasn’t the best mid-day meal because I was feeling pretty drowsy afterwards. So drowsy that I ended up napping through an episode or two of Million Dollar Listing.
PM Snack – Smoothie made with Vega vanilla almond energizing smoothie packet
As a little post-nap pick-me-up, I blended up this smoothie which included:
- 2/3 c. skim milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 handfuls of blueberries
- 1 heaping tbsp. vanilla Chobani
- 1 tsp. peanut butter
- Vega vanilla almond energizing smoothie
I drank this while doing a little afternoon blog reading… not a bad life!
Dinner – Big salad
When I told Chris a “big salad” was on the meal plan for this week, he immediately made a reference to the Seinfeld episode where Elaine needs a biiiiig salad! (I tried to embed the clip from YouTube, but it wasn’t working… boo.)
In a large bowl, I combined the following to make our BIG salad:
- Spring mix
- Slivered almond
- Canned salmon (first time trying this & I honestly wasn’t a fan)
- Red and green pepper
I topped my salad with a few croutons & some ranch dressing.
The salad was just eh, okay. I’m never one to get too amped up about a salad, but maybe I’m just no good at making them?! I was also pretty annoyed with myself after I finished eating because I remembered I had bought avocado to go on top too! Bummer.
After dinner, I ate a few unpictured chocolate chips to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Okay, today I want to know…
Are you a salad fanatic? You know what I mean… loves making them, loves eating them, orders them out at restaurants, etc. This has never been me! Sure, every now & then I’ll “crave” one, but I can usually find something that sounds much more appetizing to me. Someone teach me how to make a yummy salad!
