What I Ate Wednesday! Veggies and Lean Protein!

Happy Wednesday! Last night I went for an amazing run in the rain.  What is it about running in the rain that is so calming and peaceful? Rain runs are such a good way to relax.  I ran free and didn’t worry about my pace or time.  It felt so good! The 5 miles I set out for flew by! It made me so happy!

It seems fitting that today is What I Ate Wednesday after yesterdays post about weight loss and cleanses.  As always many thanks to Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting the party!

Breakfast. 

I mixed it up this week with hard-boiled eggs, some cantaloupe and a homemade banana nut muffin.  This breakfast reminded me of my trip to Italy and the breakfasts I enjoyed there.

My goal is to get more lean protein and fruit into my breakfast.  I enjoyed the change and was satisfied all the way until lunch time!

Lunch.

I decided to change things up this week with a salad of mixed greens, falafel, cucumbers, black olives and red peppers with a little bit of balsamic vinaigrette on the side.  I had some blue corn tortilla chips on the side, an apple and yogurt with granola for an afternoon snack!

It was a nice change from my usual sandwiches and leftovers!

Dinner.  

The other night I was craving food with a Greek flair.  I ended up making a greek style pita with chicken, feta cheese, lettuce, couscous, Kalamata olives and tzatziki sauce.  On the side I had a chick pea salad with black beans, peppers and herbs.  It was exactly what I was  craving!

I actually only had one of the wraps since they were so filling! Delicious!

I’m looking forward to seeing what all of you are eating!  I get so many good ideas from everyone’s posts!

What do you eat for breakfast when you are focusing on lean protein? Sandwiches or salad for lunch?  Do you like Greek food?  What foods do you crave?
