what i ate wednesday: issue 72

 Figure 1. Breakfast: puffed wheat + All Bran + cocoa powder + banana + milk. My snack (un-pictured) was a sliced Gala apple sprinkled with cinnamon.

Figure 2. Lunch: a version of my favorite green smoothie without the peanut butter and with a little added xanthan gum for thickening power (~1/4 tsp) with a side of carrots and peanut butter.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: pretzel sticks and an (un-pictured) Red Gala apple.

Figure 4. Pre-dinner munchies: my favorite beer (Sierra Nevada pale ale) with a handful of blue corn chips and salsa. I am on Spring Break, after all, and that calls for beer on a Tuesday....

Figure 5. Dinner: shredded chicken tacos in a whole wheat tortilla topped with cheese, avocado, spinach, tomatoes, onions, salsa, and Greek yogurt alongside roasted broccoli. I also had chocolate-peanut butter Arctic Zero (un-pictured) for dessert.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, March 11).
