I totally forgot to take pictures of a day of eating… OOPS!
As you probably noticed this is only my 2nd WIAW, so I am still getting used to taking pictures of everything I eat. I was kind of bummed and thinking I wasn’t going to be able to participate, until I had the brilliant idea to take pictures of everything I was packing in my lunch. This is like snap shots of what my work eats are going to look like. You can assume any eats after these 2 meals and snacks are going to be only clean, healthy options. Of course.
Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting! Take a peek sometime at all the WIAW entries. Such great ideas!
I came home to an empty house. 3 kids, 1 husband, and 1 dog off to play in the lake for a few hours. 1 big, easy going dog came to greet me. I was pretty sure he didn’t care about me, or need me to pay attention to him, so I decided to pack my work food for today and take pictures of all the goodies. I mean, what else would I want to do in an empty, quiet, house?
Breakfast #1 (already consumed)
I sliced the top and bottom off an apple and cut it in half down the middle. Took the core out (kind of) and slathered peanut butter in the middle. A splash of lemon juice kept it from turning brown.
A papertowel kept me
I made yummy overnight oats in an empty chia seed jar. In the mix: Oats (duh), cinnamon, flax seed instead of chia (see the empty chia jar), scoop of Shakeology, a scoop of peanut butter, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Oh.So.Good!
All the rest of my food has yet to be eaten. Is it weird that I get excited about all the food that is in my future? I love to EAT!
I am all out of Kale and Spinach, so my salad consisted of romaine, peppers, shredded pork, mustard, oil/vinagar/mustard dressing, and a bit more mustard. I love mustard. Isn’t my Tupperware bowl cute? It is huge too. My Wednesdays are long and I teach 3 classes, so I need a ton of energy. Therefore I need snacks.
(Truth be told I need lots of snacks even on days I don’t teach 3 classes. )
Cottage cheese and protein powder (cookies and cream flavor) and an apple. Maybe I will eat them together, maybe not. (Judging by my rumbling stomach: Probably not).
Snack #3 (AKA: Car Snack)
Cheese stick and 4 peppers (all that was left, booooooo!!) Usually I eat a ton more veggies than this on my car snack. My hubby and I are challenging ourselves to not stop at the grocery store this week and use more of what we already have in the house. This means I am going to have to be really creative in the next few days, because I just used up the last of our raw veggies (besides lettuce).
Frozen veggies will be consumed.
Not included in this post: Dinner, 1-2 sessions of #teatime12, and lots and lots of water.
Questions: Do you get excited to eat your meals? Do you stop at the store a lot during the week, or do you try and use up what you have and do one big shopping trip?
Sweet Eats! Andi
