What I Ate Wednesday # 29

What I Ate Wednesday # 29

Good morning everyone. I can’t believe it is Wednesday already and time to see what I have been eating these days. I have been extremely exhausted and food has been the last thing on my mind. But, I have been very conscience of getting 100 grams of protein in each day, per doctors orders.

This month is all about snacking. Here are some of my favorite snacks:

  1. Fruit, of any kind. I seriously can eat just about any fruit. Whenever, I want a sweet treat this is my go to snack.
  2. Carrots and hummus is another one of my quick and easy snacks. I love eating this snack while I make dinner.
  3. A peanut butter protein shake
  4. I love peanut butter on Wasa crackers. I actually love peanut butter on anything and it’s a great way to feel full for hours.
  5. A handful of peanuts is another great snack that is quick and easy.

Meal # 1 – 7:30

This morning we had protein pancakes and as always they were delicious. (30 grams of protein)

Snack 1 – 10:00

For some reason yesterday morning I had a difficult time getting us out the door. So, I only had time to grab a luna bar and eat it in the car. (9 grams of protein)

Meal # 2 – 12:00

Once we got home from dance I was starving so I made myself a nice big salad with turkey, carrots, walnuts, homemade pita croutons, and a sprinkle of cheese. I paired it with some pita chips and hummus. (30 grams of protein)

Snack # 2 – 2:30

I had a fruit salad and half of Isabella’s Chocolate Chip Z-Bar.

WIAW 28 - fruit

Meal # 3 – 6:00

Last night, was Steve’s golf league so my mom and dad came over and brought us dinner.  I had the Baja Chicken sub from Quiznos. This is one of my favorite sandwiches. Lately, I have been loving corn on the cob so I had a piece of that with my sandwich. When warm weather hits I can’t resist corn on the cob. (30 grams of protein)


My dad also picked up a couple chocolate chunk cookies, if you haven’t had these you definitely have to try them they are delicious. These cookies are huge so I only had half a cookie, but trust me that was plenty. Soft chocolate chip cookies are definitely a treat I don’t pass up. For me a good cookie is worth it.  I had a glass of milk too. (10 grams of protein)

    I love protein pancakes, for when I really need to load up on protein!

    Fruit is one of my favorite snacks too. I can never say no to fruit! It’s just so refreshing and delicious 🙂

    I could never pass up my mom’s chocolate cream pie! She only makes it once or twice a year (usually just at Christmas but sometimes for my brother’s birthday), and it is just out of this world. An oreo crust, sikly chocolate filling – a chocolate lovers dream 🙂 Oh and cookie dough is pretty hard to pass on too!


    • Yes, I could eat fruit all the time. It really is the best treat!

      Oh my that pie sounds delicious. I see why you can’t pass it up. 🙂 Cookie dough is yummy too.

    I’m going to try these protein pancakes for breakfast this morning! I’ve been looking for a version without protein powder, and these look perfect! 🙂

    • I am so glad you are giving them a try, you will love them. These are so good and I love that the protein comes from eggs and cottage cheese. They are a win, win!!

    mmmm…. soft chocolate chip cookies are the best! My go to healthy snack lately is carrot sticks and Sunflower Seed Butter! Which I posted a recipe for today. So easy and so good!

    • I will definitely have to make some of that Sunflower Seed Butter, it sounds wonderful and so easy. Thank you!!

    I just love me some Luna bars or Clif bars…They get me through life 🙂

    Is your daily 100 grams of protein from the doctor or is that something that you wanted to do?

    • Oh my Luna bars are seriously such a yummy treat for me. It really helps with chocolate cravings. 🙂 And the girls Z-Bars are just as delicious.

      A little bit of both. My doctor told me that there has been some research that suggests that eating a lot of protein when you are pregnant with twins that have TTTS has helped stabilize or even reverse it. I then went home and did some research of my own and came up with 100 grams. I feel no matter what the extra protein can’t hurt.

      • Beth Sheridan @sugarcoatedsheridans on said:

        Agreed!! I was just curious 🙂

        • Now that I have gotten so used to eating 100 grams of protein I am going to continue on this route once the babies are here. 🙂

    I think Quizno’s is like a million times better than Subway. I may get bashed for saying that… But it’s totally true! I haven’t had either in forever because (hello!) bread and wheat allergies don’t mix 🙁 However, when I did go, my favorite sandwich was a toasted 6 inch wheat with ham, lettuce and ranch. Oh, and don’t forget that awesome seasoning stuff that they put on the sandwiches…. They still do that, right?!

    • I love them both at different times. Sometimes I am in the mood for a hot sandwich and sometimes I want a nice cold sandwich. Quizno’s was delicious. 🙂

    That salad looks amazing..probably because I have been craving one and will totally be making one tonight! Fruit is always amazing, I generally have a piece of frozen nanner (natures candy! The best 😀 ) with my typical protein mug muffin for a snacky.

    Authentic pistachio gelato is something that is super hard for me to pass up on, but due to currently working towards certain fitness related goals, I have pretty strong will power to last until my next cheat meal 😀

    • I have been into salads lately and even when I don’t feel like one I end up making one and love it. 🙂 I need to try freezing some of my fruit, I have heard they make a delicious treat.

      Oh gelato is tasty!!
