What I ate Wednesday

I've been seeing What I Ate Wednesday posts in the blog world lately, and I for some reason love seeing what other people eat in a day, so I thought I'd do one as well. Taking pictures of all my food had the added benefit of making me think twice about some of my snack choices, so maybe I should do this more often. In a typical day I eat more sweets.

I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast for weeks at a time, and then get sick of it and switch it up. Lately I've been eating plain greek yogurt with a tablespoon of honey, a sliced banana, a tablespoon of flax seed (not pictured) and half a cup of raisin bran. When I have berries I throw a handful of those in as well, but we were out this morning. Plus a cup of coffee with unsweetened almond milk is a must. This is a really filling combo. I usually eat around 8:00, and don't need a snack before lunch.

This is my second time this week eating this meal. It's a vegan "chicken" caesar pita + half an avocado. I used an ezekiel pita, and inside there's romaine, caesar dressing, gardein vegan chick'n, and parmesan. I had Target salt & pepper kettle chips and grapes on the side. 

I ate this clif kid bar before I worked out (2.5 miles/30 minutes on the treadmill).

Afterward I had a snack pack of cashews, cottage cheese, and mango. I wound up working out twice today (very rare), so this was also a pre-workout snack. Joe and I went to the park and he had me doing calisthenic exercises while Ezzy pushed his lawn mower around. He's tough. I only last twenty minutes, then we went out to eat for date night.

Since it was date night, we ordered a lot of different dishes and split everything. We went to a vegan restaurant and got: salad with quinoa, chick'n, edamame, tortilla strips, and lots of other veggies; chick'n burger + sweet potato fries, curry tofu scramble + brown rice. Everything was delicious. And it turns out Ezzy loves vegan chick'n too. And edamame. Good to know. 

After we walked around checking out some furniture stores we stopped by Starbucks and I got a light espresso frappucino, but only drank half since I don't want to be up all night. 

And here are some pics of Ez and I working out, and then collapsed on the grass afterward:
