i’ve gotta say, i might have stepped it up a notch from my normal food so that i had something fun to share, but that was fine with me! 🙂
breakfast was a protein smoothie.
- vanilla protein powder
- chia seeds
- frozen blueberries
- chocolate almond milk
then it was topped with:
- coconut butter, melted and then drizzled on top
- bear naked fruit & nut granola
around 10:30 i was needing a little something something to get me through to lunch, so i decided to walk to starbucks and cash in my free birthday drink!
i got a tall skinny hazelnut DECAF latte. and i ate it with an orange (and a vitamin)!
lunch was eaten in a weekly lunch-time seminar. i had a lot of interested comments/questions on my food! on monday night i whipped up a batch of “fried” rice that was packed full of veggies! i’ve had some rice paper sitting in my pantry cabinet for a very long time, so i rolled up some fried rice in them and had “spring rolls”!
i drizzled a bit of homemade dressing on top:
- 1tsp sesame oil
- 1 T rice vinegar
- 1 T low sodium soy sauce
it was a very filling lunch! 🙂
i alway need a little snackie when i get home from work, so i had two tj’s ginger snaps! i LOVE these things!
dinner was a bit boring because it contained more of my rice from lunch (i made a HUGE batch). this time i used a tj’s whole wheat tortilla, spread a laughing cow wedge on it, added a big handfull of spinach, some rice mix, and topped with hot sauce! mmm, this was a tasty creation.
i had a late night workout planned (ok, not late night, but 8pm) to watch the biggest loser, but when i got to the gym i realize that the state of the union was on – so i ran while watching that instead! 🙂
anyway, i needed a little replenishment after my run, so i had a larabar.
i had a headache and thought i needed some water and protein, so i chugged a bottle of water and had a couple mushrooms dipped in hummus! random, but good.
and there you have it! lots of food. it was hard to remember to take photos of all my food all day! it was interesting to write it out on here though! hope you enjoyed seeing a day in my life through food. and thanks again to jenn for hosting this series!
have you ever documented a day of food? what do you think of it?
i’ve had to keep food diaries before for studies or doctor appointment, but i don’t think i could do it like this every day!
