what i ate wednesday: issue 55

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl (x2) of Post Shredded Wheat, Arrowhead Mills puffed wheat, a sliced banana, and cow's milk.

Figure 2. Lunch: a spinach salad with carrots, white button mushrooms, grape tomatoes, cottage cheese, and tahini thinned with apple cider vinegar.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack #1: a leftover (out of the freezer and warmed) orange-apricot bran muffin with plain Greek yogurt.

Figure 4. Afternoon snack #2: a big of pretzels from the vending machine. Sunday's 13 mile run made today carb-tastic!

Figure 5. Dinner: cinnamon sweet potato fries dipped in honey alongside a delicious veggie-egg scramble. For this version I sauteed eggplant, mushrooms, and green onions in olive oil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and coconut aminos until done. Then I scrambled 1 egg and 2 egg whites, mixed the eggs with the veggies, and topped with cashews for crunch.

Figure 6. Dessert: dry Cascadian Farms vanilla almond granola and peanut butter.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Monday, October 22).

  5. Would you mind sending me one of those muffins? Bran muffins are great!

    How fun the pretzles are labeled "hungry size" - way better than too small servings, right?

  6. Love those vending machine Pretzels! Especially when they are dipped into Peanut Butter :) Happy WIAW!

  7. Those muffins sound good!! And I love the looks of your dinner. Especially because of the sweet potato fries. Squash is the perfect food for fall!
