What I Ate Wednesday #74

Standard

I’m pretty excited to be talking about food today.  I seriously love food and it makes me happy.  My eating was really off last week.  It was incredibly busy at work, the days were flying by and I kept forgetting to eat.  I was also really stressed out and trying to stay focused which distracted me from lunch.  This week I’m making a better effort to stop and eat lunch at noon and eat my snacks mid-morning and mid-afternoon.  It’s amazing how much better I feel when I stick to my normal eating schedule.

Breakfast.

I’ve had some long days and I love to start them off with a good breakfast full of fuel.  One of my goto’s has been waffles, a couple scrambled eggs with cheese and fresh fruit with coffee.  It’s so delicious and the perfect balance of carbs and protein!

Over the weekend Michael and I got a little bit creative with breakfast and made breakfast tacos.  We scrambled eggs with Morning Star Veggie Breakfast Sausage, black beans, tomatoes and cheese.  On top we put sliced avocado, salsa and sour cream.  It was so good and really filling!

Lunch.

I’ve been keeping it simple with sandwiches and fruit.  I’m learning that I actually eat less at my new job and don’t need to bring as much food.  For months I’ve been bringing 3 pieces of fruit, nuts and yogurt in addition to my lunch.  I pretty much always eat 2 pieces and fruit and maybe some nuts.  I’ve been carrying extra food back and forth that I never eat.  So I’ve been trying to bring just enough food rather than too much.

Tuna has been in the mix lately, it’s a nice change and so good!

Dinner.

The other night we kept it simple and had pasta with Mike’s Mom’s sauce and salads.  Usually we just dump about half a box of pasta into the pot and call it good but this time we weighed out pasta for our meal.  It didn’t look like much dried but cooked it proved to be plenty of food!  We definitely need to start weighing more of our food.

We also had our favorite haddock with Ritz crackers, salad and broccolini.  Michael made the broccolini with a soy and sesame sauce which was so good.  It made the veggies salty but sweet and gave them tons of flavor.  In the sauce was soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, sugar and garlic.  It was quick and easy to put together too!

I can’t wait to see what all of you have been eating! Many thanks to Jen for hosting the party.

  1. My favorite veggie with dinner.. or lunch is broccoli. I could eat it every day (I pretty much do) I usually only have about 1 snack a day, but if I was hungry for more I’d probably have more.

    All of your eats look so good!
