You guessed it, it’s What I Ate Wednesday, time again.
Happy day to you all! Yesterday marked the first day of the ecourse I’m taking, Everyday Happy. I’ll share more about it in a separate post, but I love what the hosts have in store and am really excited to get started on this 6-week journey. If you’re interested in learning more about the class and what it entails, check out their website, and why not sign-up? Everyone could stand to be a little happier, can’t they?
Alright, time for What I Ate Wednesday.
My workdays tend to include the same food over and over again. It isn’t that I have a boring pallet, it’s just that it’s easier to pack a lunch when you know exactly what you have to pack and not think through everything. When I get sick of what I’ve currently been eating, and switch things up, I tend to forget some part of my lunch because it’s new and I have a terrible short-term memory. Anyhoo – with all that said, if you notice that some of the foods are repetitive, or seem like they’re from previous weeks, now you know why.
Breakfast was my usual, egg, cheese (American) and Canadian bacon sandwich on a whole grain muffin. I love this because it is just like what I would stop at Tim Horton’s and order, just a bit healthier. Plus it’s pretty filling, which is always a benefit when it comes to breakfast, since I find I’m most hungry then. As per usual, I forgot to snap a pic before I ate it, sorry! I swear one of these weeks I will manage to get a photo.
Snack was a delicious combination for Trader Joe’s 0% Greek Yogurt, with organic, unsweetened coconut and Goji berries mixed in, and then topped with some granola. I am loving Goji berries right now, I had been seeing a lot of them in people’s Instagram photos so I thought I’d give them a try and I REALLY like them! They add a nice sweet touch and since I use them dried, they’re nice and chewy, which causes me to eat slower and allows my belly to fill up faster.
For lunch I had my typical salad. Romaine lettuce, blue cheese crumbles, sunflower seeds, ham, chicken and honey mustard dressing. See, I told you I eat the same things almost every week! 😀
I ate a little something just before I left work. I hate when I leave hungry because then I am more apt to stop and get fast food. I had two Wasa Crisps topped with First Light Farm and Creamery Garlic and Dill Chevre (yum!), tomotes and radishes (all from the farmer’s market). This has been my go to snack for the last week, I dare you to give it a try!
Finally, dinner, we just had some pasta and garlic bread. Definitely not the healthiest of meals but it tasted good. I just did some pasta water mixed with olive oil and garlic powder. I’m very particular about my pasta sauces and haven’t found that I love (except for Frank’s), so I tend to gravitate towards white sauces or plain olive oil.
So, that’s it, that was my day of food. Pretty yummy if you ask me!
Have you tried Goji berries before? If so, what do you think?
What are some of your eats from the past week?
