Wow, is it really my 9th What I Ate Wednesday?!
I was looking over my pictures from this WIAW and I was thinking that it didn’t seem like a lot of food at first. But then when I started thinking about what I ate and how I felt all day (aka I really listened to my body and my stomach) it was a really great food day. My stomach stayed perfectly satisfied all day. I had a really balanced day with tons of really tasty food!
Breakfast was an awesome cereal blend from the Engine 2 Diet book- it’s called Rip’s Big Bowl. Love it! I like to buy it in the bulk section at whole foods, they sell it premixed- it’s a blend of rolled oats, plain shredded wheat, Uncle Sam’s Cereal, Ezekial 4:9 cereal, walnuts, flax, and raisins. I ate it over Organic plain soy yogurt and topped it all off with blueberries! This combo kept me full for 5 hours. Seriously.
For lunch I had a little pizza- whole wheat crust(my crust did not turn out amazing this time unfortunately), a whole zucchini sautéed, marinara, and a little Daiya Pepperjack cheese. And a salad: kale and carrots with some avocado massaged in and a drizzle of lemon juice.
Afternoon snack attack! Big ole peach and a pumpkin spice latte. There was also an ounce of almonds that I forgot to take a picture of!
Dinner was a huge veggie stir fry- bell pepper, carrots, onions, tons of broccoli, and edamame with soba noodles and the peanut sauce from Laura’s Pad Thai recipe! NOM!
And my evening sweet treat- two dates with 1 teaspoon each of dark chocolate peanut butter and butterscotch peanut butter. OMG SO GOOD! As much as I LOVE dates, they do not love me back. They are so intensely sweet that they make my teeth hurt soooo badly! Ah well.
What a delicious day! What are you munching on this WIAW?!
