Hello and happy What I Ate Wednesday! Real life distracted me a bit from the blogosphere earlier this week, but not enough to bypass WIAW! There’s something fun about taking note of what I eat on a given day, and then heading over to Jenn’s blog and checking out what everyone else was up to. It’s always good for some new ideas!
In the morning, I woke up starving. I was way too hungry to even wait for eggs to scramble so along with my tea I made a quick bowl of oatmeal with ground flax seeds and cacao nibs. The cacao nibs really make this breakfast taste special and the flax seeds keep me full.
Mid-morning I had a smoothie made with vanilla protein powder, seltzer, frozen pineapple, and frozen strawberries. The pineapple makes it taste fun and tropical!
For lunch I had leftovers from the previous night’s dinner: turkey sloppy joes with pinto beans, corn, and broccoli roasted with with olive oil, pepper, and garlic. I wound up saving about half of the sloppy joes and having them again for a mid-afternoon snack. Hey, I’m a fan of leftovers. Healthy, easy, and already sitting in my fridge. Sold.
I also snacked on some grapes, almonds, and a protein bar throughout the afternoon.
Dinner was a new one! During my grocery shopping at Whole Foods yesterday, I came upon these Mahi Mahi filets that were marinated in mango, orange, coconut and habanero pepper. I usually save the seafood for dinners out or at my parents‘ house, but since these filets were on sale, I decided to splurge and indulge the seafood craving.
I paired the fish with a salad, some home made sweet potato wedges, and green bean fries. I made the green bean fries following Monica’s method. It was a delicious and nutritious dinner!
I ended the day with a piece of Valentine’s Day candy, courtesy of the padre. Sweet!
What did you eat today? Any recent grocery store splurges?
