Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Quaker Oatmeal Squares, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.
Figure 2. Mid-morning snack: a Pink Lady apple and almonds.
Figure 3. Lunch (for the camera): a spinach and raw cabbage salad topped with grape tomatoes, raw broccoli & cauliflower, pickled beets, toasted pecans, chopped dates, hummus, balsamic vinegar, and s & p.
Figure 4. Lunch (in reality): this salad got even larger with addition of more raw cabbage/broccoli/cauliflower and added to a mixing bowl so it didn't fall all over the floor upon tossing/eating.
Figure 5. Afternoon snack: dry Quaker Oatmeal Squares and almonds.
Figure 6. Dinner: a baked sweet potato topped with leftover 'healthier' turkey meatballs alongside roasted cabbage. Just so you know, meatballs + sweet potato = perfection.
Figure 7. Dessert: this 'Gent' chocolate (milk chocolate with an almond praline filling, blended with roasted almond bits). You know when something is so good it forces you to close your eyes so you can savor it that much more? This little treat did just that.
And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Monday, January 16).
