I can’t believe Wednesday has come and gone. How is this week almost over?
Since, I kept forgetting it was Wednesday I kept forgetting to take pictures of what I ate. I haven’t written a What I Ate Wednesday post in awhile and was definitely out of practice.
Meal # 1
After finishing Chisel Balance this morning I ate a couple Greek Yogurt Waffles. These are still a favorite of mine. For less the 300 calories you get 2-3 huge waffles. Top with a little butter and powdered sugar and you are all set. YUM!!
Meal # 2
I eat breakfast early so by mid morning I am ready for breakfast # 2. I ate strawberries and grapes with a bowl of cereal (2/3 cup Kashi Go Lean, 1/3 cup unsweetened cashew milk). I have been on a cereal kick lately, it’s just so satisfying; sweet and refreshing, yet filling.
Meal # 3
Once we got home from dropping Sophia off at cheer camp and Target I was hungry. I made a taco salad with ground beef, cheese, and a splash of sauce.
Meal # 4
After picking up Sophia from camp I was ready for something sweet so I warmed up a mini apple crisp (I left the topping off, simply because I wasn’t in the mood to make up a batch of my paleo granola crunch.) with a scoop of light ice cream.
Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it today, so this is a recycled one and it has the topping on it.
Meal # 5
A few hours later I was hungry again so I ate 4 slices of peppered turkey and a light Babybel cheese. This has been a go to snack for me. A lot of protein, easy and delicious.
Meal # 6
I had extra lean ground turkey on a flat-out flatbread with a slice of Trader Joe’s organic american cheese. This is one of my easy, quick and delicious dinners. I put 4 ounces of ground turkey in a skillet and cook it up then put it on half a flatbread and microwave it (to melt the cheese). I also had a Trader Joe’s uncured hot dog on a light bun. I know it’s a weird dinner, but it works for me.
Meal # 7
I ended my night with a 7 grain Kashi waffle topped with half a tablespoon of almond butter.
Meal # 8
I ended my night with a microwave s’more. I took a sheet of graham cracker topped it with 1 marshmallow and 1/4 of a chocolate bar.
Oh my, I feel as though I ate so much food today. I feel satisfied, yet all this food came in at roughly 1800 calories with the right combo of carbs, fats, and proteins.
I am counting my macros and following the 40/30/30 carbs/protein/fats. Right now I am counting macros using the percentage method. For right now this is working for me. I feel in control of what I am eating without being overly rigid.
