Happy Wednesday Everyone! I’m pretty psyched that we are half way through the week! I’m really looking forward to the weekend and then a short week next week for the holiday. So what have I been eating this week? Well let’s take a look!
Breakfast this week has been different. I gave up coffee about a week ago and can say I have mixed emotions about it. Some mornings I really want it and others I could careless. I’ve been drinking a smoothie instead which has been delicious. I’ve also been loving eggs! Since we aren’t marathon training I’m trying to cut down on the amount of carbs I’ve been eating. For egg sandwiches I’ve been using sandwich pitas which are perfect!
I had this Saturday morning after my run, thus the two egg sandwiches! Banana with Almond Butter is delicious, I really can’t get enough of it.
Lunches have been my usual brown bag staples. I mix up the sandwiches, and granola bars with different flavors so I never really get bored. This week I’ve been choosing tuna with american cheese, lettuce and cucumbers. Pretzels, an apple and Annie’s Chocolate Chipper Chewy Granola bar on the side.
For an afternoon snack I’ve been loving Chobani Greek Yogurt!
They are really good and pretty healthy.
For dinner I have been trying to eat what is in season which means all things fall flavored! I found these Butternut Squash Ravioli’s at Hannaford and decided to give them a try. They were delicious! They are also rather pretty with the orange stripes!
On the side I had some sautéed Brussel Sprouts…I am obsessed with these lately! They are so delicious! I keep it simple and saute them with olive oil and salt and pepper. I like them best when they are a bit crispy.
I have also been drinking lots of Kombucha lately! It tastes delicious and makes me feel great! I’m definitely a fan!
I’ve been trying to avoid sweets lately as I’m trying to stay healthy and choose leaner options!
That’s all for me this week! I can’t wait to see what you are all eating! I can honestly say that What I Ate Wednesday keeps my meal ideas fresh and encourages me to cook more and try new things. I can’t thank you all enough for that!
