Good morning, and happy Wednesday! Welcome to another addition of the always fun What I Ate Wednesday!
As it usually the case, today’s WIAW post showcases all of my eats from Tuesday (yesterday). Even though it was my late night at work, I was able to switch things up a bit from the usual unconventional Tuesday night dinners. So alrighty then…let’s have at it!
8:00am – Breakfast
As always…ya’ll already saw this one yesterday: Mixed Berry French Toast Oatmeal + coffee with skim milk and Truvia
Gotta love those fresh berries…am I right?
11:15am – Mid-Morning Snack
A sliced pear sprinkled with cinnamon + one batch of Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter
For whatever reason, this batch of PB ended up extra creamy. It was a fantastic way to fuel up after that treadmill workout yesterday.
1:30pm – Lunch
1/2 cup brown rice + some of yesterday’s Vegetable Stew
Good news…this stew is awesome! The only changes I made to the original recipe were omitting the red pepper flakes (no extra spice, thankyouverymuch) and adding in 1 teaspoon each of dried basil and Garlic Gold. Hubby has no interest in this whatsoever, so this whole batch is ALL mine, baby.
2:00 – Lunch Dessert
Two pieces of dark chocolate almond toffee….ummm, yeah.
Last night, I had a wonderful little package waiting for me filled with some delicious goodies, courtesy of Elaine’s Toffee Company.
They sent me three different flavors of their signature toffee to try: Milk Chocolate Almond, Milk Chocolate Peanut, and Dark Chocolate Almond.
I really think they must have read my mind, seeing as though I’ve been having some major PMS chocolate cravings the past two days. These couldn’t have arrived at a better (err, worse?) time.
The dark chocolate was really calling out to me last night, so that one ended up being my first victim.
Oh my. There are no words. And in an attempt to not eat three pounds of toffee in three days, I’m holding off on opening the other two flavors right now. I cannot be trusted.
4:45 – Mid-Afternoon Snack
I actually wasn’t super hungry mid-afternoon, plus I was pressed for time between clients, so I held off on the Clif Z Bar and only had the orange.
6:45 – Dinner
Before I left for work this afternoon, I put together a wrap to bring for a quick dinner on the fly.
I filled up a whole wheat LaTortilla Factory wrap with roasted red pepper hummus, 3 slices of low-sodium deli turkey, tomato slices, bread and butter pickles, and fresh spinach.
8:30 – Evening Snack
More chocolate. Darn PMS. It started with a VitaCake…
…and then finished up with a couple more pieces of this amazing toffee.
But hey, it’s dark chocolate AND it’s covered in almonds so that makes it totally, 100% healthy, right?
Yes…it sure does this week.
