WIAW Week #2

Ah, it’s Wednesday. That day in the middle of the week that signals the transition from “Aw, man! The weekend is over?” to “All right! It’s almost the weekend!”
Last wednesday I linked up with Jenn from Peas and Crayons for my first What I Ate Wednesday and I had so much fun I am back for Round 2! I loved getting to share what I eat, but even more than that I loved getting bounce around blog land checking out other peoples’ eats. It’s my nosey side coming out. Although for it to “come out” it would have to hide every once in a while and it doesn’t seem to do that often. or at all. 
Anyway, on to the eats! So these were my eats from yesterday. It just so happened to be the very last day of the 60 day Fat Loss Challenge, so I tried to pay extra attention to what I ate. We are getting our DXA scans today and I am nervous and excited to see the results. Wait- we were talking about food… 
Started my day off with Pro Sculpt, I really notice a difference when I take this stuff. 
oh, by the way, it was 440am. cause thats how I roll.
So, this was delicious. I recently found Zico chocolate coconut water at Target (and stocked up like y2k was about to happen…) and was drinking it after my morning workout and decided it would probably taste awesome mixed with my 1st Phorm Level-1 chocolate coconut protein. I was right. It was epic.
Scrambled eggs are standard for breakfast most mornings. Sadly, we are out of farmers market bacon so I had to settle for some all natural sausage. Oh, and see those peppers? They are from my garden! They were a few of the things I could salvage after the darn squash bugs killed most of my garden.
Snack time! Fresh Cherries and Almonds. Sad fact- Growing up I’m pretty sure I thought maraschino cherries were “real” cherries. Like, I don’t remember ever thinking about these kind of cherries when I thought about cherries. I so missed out. No worries- I’m making up for it now. 
Gardien Burger
Lunch was totally random. I forgot to take anything out for lunch, so I dug through the freezer and found some Gardein Veggie Burgers. I cooked one up to have with a salad. It was quick and did the trick. While it had some wheat and stuff in it, it did the trick in a pinch. Lesson learned, plan lunches better!
Afternoon snack was a glass of CLICK. The coffee taste is super strong, so I mix in 1 scoop of plain vanilla protein and it balances it out. Afternoon snack and afternoon coffee all in one cup!
Dinner was a recipe I found when we started trying to eat more Paleo type dishes. It is a copycat PF Changs Lettuce wrap from Cavegirl Cuisine. It is so delicious. Seriously, like go make it right now. I wish it photographed better.
 
I even tried another angle. It still doesn’t look nearly as yummy as it really is.
See, even Little Dreamer is excited about it. Or about the fact a camera is out… that’s my girl. 
There you have it. Another day of eats! 
What are some of your easy lunch ideas? I get stumped all the time!

    I love a tuna and avocado wrap for a quick and easy lunch, throw in a bit of basil and it is gourmet!

      Oh that does sound delish! Avocado is probably a good sub for the normal slather of mayo people use with tuna. Great idea, thanks!

      Thank you for posting it! We have had it for dinner like once a week since I found it. I have to double the recipe now that the hubby’s friends come around every time they hear i’m cooking it.

    4:40AM?!? Yikes, I admire your tenacity. I think the only thing I’ve ever drank at 4:40AM would be a final, ill-advised beer (many years ago)… or coffee so strong it could be used as a paint solvent if I had a project to finish.

      Hilarious. the 5am CrossFit class is the only way for me to fit in a workout while trading off kid duty to with the hubs. Whatever it takes, right?
