My first real day of What I Ate Wednesday… But, I’m not sure that I did it correctly.
I started out this morning thinking, “What will people think if I have pizza?” Or “What will people think if I just have a Luna bar, and no fruit?” But, as the day wore on, I realized that I needed to make choices for myself – what worked for me. I did think it was interesting that I was more willing to eat “well” knowing that other people are reading it, as opposed to eating well “just” for myself. It seems to me that I need to re-evaluate what I’m eating and the choices that I’m making. The truth is: I know what the “better” choices are, I just don’t always make them. Today, I made some, and I’d like to continue the trend.
I started with iced coffee with skim milk at 7:45 AM, but I think the milk had turned. I find that organic milk turns so much quicker than “normal”. I assume that’s because it doesn’t have the additives, but I really need to remember to smell it before pouring!
Breakfast – 9:30 AM
I was able to get another (non-tainted) cup of coffee after my first few meetings, and also picked up 4 organic hardboiled eggs (I only eat the whites) and a whole wheat English muffin with whipped cream cheese & strawberry preserves.
Lunch 1:15 PM
Went out to The Natural Cafe for lunch to take a break from the office.
Afternoon Snack – 4:15 PM
On my way to an appointment, I had some water & a Lemon Zest Luna bar. Mmmmm, lemon.
Dinner – 7:30 PM
Tonight’s dinner was a mash-up of leftovers added into a whole wheat tortilla:
- Stir-fried chicken breast with carrots & celery
- Jalapeño pub cheese with vegetarian chili and tomatoes
- Zucchini, red bell pepper, and corn from the cob sautéed with a mix of spices
Dessert – 8:30 PM
Getting great stone fruit in our bi-weekly delivery of fruits & vegetables, I’ve really gotten creative in using them. I’ve been chopping up the plums, microwaving for 30 seconds. I then topped them with 1/4 c of homemade granola, and about 1 t of agave nectar. Super yum!
Add 2 Medjool dates to the mix, and that’s What I Ate Wednesday.
