water + protein coffee | WIAW

Well, since my marathon on Saturday, I have not been feeling like eating… Not sure what’s going on with my body, but food is not my jam at the moment. So, for today’s What I Ate Wednesday post, it is more like What I Forced Myself To Eat Wednesday 🙂 I know, I shouldn’t force myself to eat…but my odd lack-of-appetite needs to get back into check.

[drinks] water (x3) + Nuun (w/caffiene) + water (x3) + Nuun (All Day)

LOL,…so it is Earth Week at work and we have a recycling competition between our teams (art department, art development and technical applications, and the product development and art merchandising). There are large boxes in each area : 1 can counts as 1 point and 1 bottle counts as -1 point. The most points at the end of the week wins! The point is to put as many cans in your own teams boxes and put your bottles in the other teams boxes… Our team (art development and technical applications) are BIG on competitions…so we are doing everything we can to win 🙂 I am just doing my part to be an active team member!

I was NOT in the mood to eat this morning – could have been from rolling out of bed later than I wanted to… I packed up my meals and snacks for the day and didn’t have a lot of time to think about breakfast. I knew that I was craving coffee (particularly bulletproof coffee!!) but knew that I needed to eat something more. So I decided to quickly blend it with my protein powder! (I wish I had some vanilla powder in the house, but chocolate works just the same!)

[morning snack] leftover egg bake + tomato

The hubs always makes a great egg bake – hashbrowns + eggs + ham + cheese + peppers and/or onions. Towards the end of last week, he made a bake for dinner and I ate the last portion for my morning snack!

[lunch] mixed salad + cottage cheese

One of my favorite things to get at Costco is their 7 Superfoods Salad mix – I could probably eat the whole bag in a day… So, to keep me from doing that, I have started mixing it with other greens I have on hand and using it as more of a topper rather than a main course. I chopped up some lettuce, added the 7 Superfoods Salad Mix (including cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and dressing) and lunch is served!

Really, eating this was hardly a snack – it was supposed to go on my salad, but I forgot! It was so small…I am not sure I have eaten one so small…but I have 3 more at home that need to be eaten ASAP before they go sour…good thing I have a lot of salad mix at home! **or I will just make a little batch of guac**

[afternoon snack #2] plain Greek yogurt + Tropical Granola (from last weeks Bountiful Basket – ordered more this week!!!) – layers of yummy yogurt and yummy homemade granola – YUM! 

[dinner] quinoa/brown rice + spiralized zucchini + venison meatballs + avocado

Since I kicked the hubs out to go fishing, I had to dig through the pantry, freezer, and fridge and come up with something. I made a bowl for myself and little man had a plate with everything as well 🙂
