Can you believe it’s Wednesday already? You know what that means…. W.I.A.W…..
First of all, I just want to say thank you for all the awesome breakfast suggestions last week. I definitely have plenty of new ideas to keep me from getting bored from now on! Can’t wait to try them out!
Here ya have it… my Tuesday (but I’m pretending it’s Wednesday’s) eats. I managed to switch it up a bit, and get some variety! Are you proud?
7:30 a.m. Kombucha Synergy on the way to work.
Not a huge switch, but it’s not my typical Gingerade at least!
8:15 a.m. Tina’s 3 – Ingredient Apple Cinnamon Pancake with PB2 drizzled on top
Now, before I show you what MINE looked like, let me show you what Tina’s looked like…
Looks amazing, right? How ’bout now…
I’m sorry, but is that cat food?
I’ll tell ya what though… it sure didn’t taste like cat food. They were AMAZING.
I actually made them Monday night and stuck them in the fridge overnight to bring to work with me, and they were great cold! I’m not exactly sure where I went wrong…. I think it may have been my lack of patience when it came to flipping the pancakes. Actually, I KNOW it had to do with my lack of patience. Tina, I apologize for butchering your recipe.
Regardless, they were awesome. So simple and so healthy! I loved the added protein from the eggs, and it kept me full all morning long!
11:45 – Salad with roasted veggies and a whole wheat wrap filled with hummus, zucchini, and sprouts.
This delicious lunch was scarfed down before I had to report to lunch duty! Fun.
2:00 Protein Shake with Unsweetened Almond Milk and Blueberries and Cream Protein Powder
Usually I wait until I get home to have my protein shake before the gym, but I’ve been noticing that I need some extra time to finish digesting my snack before my Tuesday workout, so I wanted to have it earlier.
It turned out it didn’t really matter when I had my snack though. I opted out of my workout for the day. I had a really tough day at work, and I feel like I’ve been coming down with something. My throat is so sore and I feel like it could be the start of a fever (please, oh please no…) I decided to put on my sweats and take an unplanned rest day instead!
6:45 p.m. Kale salad with a Boca Burger
Being that I wasn’t feeling well, I decided to cram in as many nutrients as possible. I made a huge kale salad drizzled with olive oil, sesame seeds, and garlic salt. I threw in a chopped up Boca Burger and some leftover roasted brussel sprouts (I promise they are under all that kale)!
My appetite was kind of off, so I didn’t force myself to eat more. I ended my night with a cup of sleepytime tea and called it a night! Here’s hoping that veggie magic did the trick!
Do you try to eat differently when you feel like you are getting sick?
Any tips/tricks you want to throw my way would be appreciated!
