Hey guys! What’s up?
Can you believe it’s already time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday?
But I digress…
Be sure to head on over to Peas & Crayons and show our ever gracious hostess a bit of comment love for throwing this weekly shindig! And if you’re interested in joining up, click here for all the deets!
Alright, let’s party!
After I woke up from my night shift on Monday morning, I had a serious craving for eggs…but more specifically I wanted
That would be a spinach Flat Out wrap slathered in nooch sauce (just nutritional yeast thinned with a bit of water) and then stuffed to the brim with arugula, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, and of course two of the most provocative eggs the farmer’s market could provide! 😉
After I used the wrap to mop up each and every bit of that warm yellow goodness, I headed off to the gym.
As far as my workout went…for our food AND fitness theme, I’ve been loving the elliptical even more than usual these days. I always just jump on, hit manual, and get swinging, but lately I’ve been experimenting with the customizable HIIT workout programs. Oh yes, I said customizable!
Which is apparently code for “kick your own ass” 😉
I was DRENCHED after this workout and it was only 2o minutes long…even my forearms were sweating! LOL
Once I got back home, I whipped myself up a little snack to refuel my tired muscles before heading into work for another shift.
Now, I know air popped popcorn is no well kept secret or anything, but I swear I just wasn’t doing it right in the past…for this batch, I drizzled a bit of melted coconut oil overtop, put it in a bowl with some cocoa powder and cinnamon and…
Shook the hell out of it!
Oh my god, soooooooooooooooooooooooo good!
I also made myself a little chocolate frosty…which is just an extra thick protein shake (more ice, less water), but don’t you think calling it a “frosty” makes it so much more appealing?
And I may or may not have made it even MORE delicious by combing the two:
C’mon, you guys already know that I’m weird…
Are you really surprised?
Dinner was packed up and ready to go in a matter of minutes thanks to a bit of pre-chopping I did after coming home from the farmer’s market on Saturday.
Arugula salad with sprouts (that are hiding under there somewhere), zucchini, red bell pepper, okra, lox, and crumbled feta cheese along with a cup of fresh strawberries and a lemon for squeezing over my salad.
Citrus and seafood were meant to be together!
And since I skipped out on my daily cup when I first woke up, I took advantage of the turn-in-your-empty-bag-for-free-coffee thing at Starbux!
If only I had known they had the brew set to “hot molten lava”…I didn’t even get to take a sip until after it cooled down…an hour later!
Snackage throughout my shift (along with my FitMixer aminos that I had pre-workout) were a tasty mix:
I’m totally digging these Gnu Cinnamon Raisin Bars…a tad bit sweet for me, but just the right size and FULL of fiber that I was surprised to find had no…ahem, consequences!
After my shift and BEFORE I face planted into my pillow, I kept it simple with a quick bowl of cereal:
Brown rice crisps mixed with Trader Joe’s pecan praline granola topped with bloobies!
Mmm, how can something so simple taste so good?
What’s the best thing you ate today?
What’s the last workout you did?
Oh, and I almost forgot…
