WIAW #6

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Welcome to another edition of WIAW, however, I’m mixing things up a little this week and making my post About What I Ate Last Weekend.

As you may have read, I went away to a Bed and Breakfast for a scrapbooking retreat last weekend and as usual, the food was amazing! We went to Selywn Shores Waterfront Bed and Breakfast located in Lakefield Ontario. Martha, the owner of the B & B is a fantastic cook, and once again, we were not disappointed!

Here’s a little of what we are:

Breakfast

Saturday Dinner

On the menu: corn ragout, broccoli salad, rice, baby bok choy with coconut, turnip apple casserole, pork tenderloin, strawberry cake with fresh strawberries.

Sunday Brunch

On the menu: mixed greens with cucumber and veggies, carrot parsnip soup, mushroom ferno, mac and cheese, flank steak, fresh herb bread and chocolate chip cheesecake.

The food was absolutely amazing, and what’s also amazing is that Martha share her recipes, so I will be able to make my favourites at home! I cannot wait to make that Mac and Cheese! Yummo!

I’m Exhausted! And WIAW

It’s only Wednesday and I’m already exhausted! We had a super busy weekend last weekend so I didn’t much of a chance to rest and its totally catchy up with me.

What does this mean?

Well it means today’s WIAW post is going to be short and sweet 🙂

Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast – Whole wheat toast with almond butter and a glass of apple juice.

Snack – 1 Dark Chocolate Chip Walnut No Bake Coconut Cookie These cookies are amazing! I think next time I will add some oats to jazz them up a little more, but they are super yummy as is. And so easy to make!

Lunch – Leftover Chicken Fajitas and grapes

20130213-202731.jpg

Snack – Pomegranate Seeds and Popchips

Well, that’s it for eats for today, and that’s it for this post! I’m outta here and off to bed!
Happy Hump Day everyone!

WIAW #5

Yesterday was a crazy busy day, both at work and home! Here’s what I ate:

Breakfast – 2 Blueberry Crumble Muffins (Clean Eating Magazine Aug/Sept 2012 p. 35) and a glass of OJ

20130207-080430.jpg

Snack – Banana

Lunch – Potato, Leek and Cheddar Soup (Clean Eating Classic Comfort Foods p.26) and grapes

20130207-080713.jpg

Snack – Apple

Dinner – Supperworks Mexican Lasagna

20130207-080905.jpg

Snack – Coke and Popchips

So, overall, not a bad day. I definitely need to curb the evening snacking – although Popchips aren’t too bad, I definitely need to stop drinking pop!

I will be posing both the muffin and soup recipe soon, stay tuned!

WIAW #4

Welcome to another instalment of What I Ate Wednesday! Today was a bit if an unusual work day – we are in exams so I have a different schedule which once again, sort of threw me off. I definitely need to start prepping dinners that provide leftovers for lunches – lots of little snacks are great, but after a run, I’m wanting more!

20130130-195011.jpg

Breakfast 7:00am – Light rye toast with natural peanut butter and a glass of OJ.

20130130-191708.jpg

Pre-run Snack 10:45am – One avocado (chopped) and a banana

20130130-192001.jpg

Run Deets:

Post-run Snack 12:00pm – Blueberry Scone (thanks Cherie), strawberries and some yummy peanut butter pretzel treats!

20130130-193518.jpg

Afternoon Snack 3pm – 1/4 cup of peanuts and 1 cup pomegranate seeds. Oops, totally forgot to take a picture 😦 after I wolfed that down I decided….

20130130-194647.jpg

And, an hour later I was feeling rested and ready to pick up the kids.

Dinner 5:30 – Ham, broccoli and cheese scalloped potatoes and broccoli.

20130130-195153.jpg

I’m already looking forward to a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch tomorrow 🙂

I’m sure there will be some sort of evening snack gobbled up in the next half hour or so, but I haven’t decided what yet…most likely a bowl of cereal…

What did you eat today?

What’s your go-to evening snack?

WIAW #3

It’s Wednesday, which means another instalment of What I Ate Wednesday!

20130123-171747.jpg

My focus this week has been on packing a bigger “lunch” with more snacks to help me make it through the 3pm sugar cravings!

My work schedule allows me the opportunity to eat between 9:30-11, 12:15-1:30, and after 3pm. Although most people would be ok eating lunch at 12:15, I am not! There is no way I can go from 6:30 am to 12:15 pm without eating! No way!

So, I pretty much split my lunch into smaller snacks and eat at little at 9:30am, a little more at 12:30pm, and the rest at 3pm. And, I’m pleased to say, it’s working! By eating more frequently throughout the day, I am craving less sugar and not eating like a hug pig the minute I walk in the door after work!

So, here’s what I ate today….

Breakfast (6:30am)

20130123-181819.jpg

2 egg omelet with shredded cheddar cheese and a slice of light rye toast with raspberry jam. My husband bought me an awesome little omelet maker for Christmas and I have to say, it makes THE best omelettes ever! The are so fluffy!

Snack #1 (9:45am)

20130123-181929.jpg

One avocado. This was the first time I had ever eaten plain avacado…it was yummy…but really filling!

Snack #2(12:30pm)

20130123-194255.jpg

Crackers and Cheese, 1 Apple (sliced) and one Eat Clean Dark Fudgy Brownie

Snack #3 (3pm)

20130123-182551.jpg

Banana

Dinner (5:30pm)

20130123-182632.jpg

Pork Tenderloin, Broccoli and Grilled Red Pepper

Snack #4 (7:00pm)

20130123-194923.jpg

Eat Clean Apple Crisp This apple crisp was ah-mazing! Seriously, probably the best I’ve ever had! You should make it, it’s easy, quick and clean…what more could you as for?

Here is a nutritional summary of my day:

What do you eat?

WIAW #2

Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a fabulous day!

This week is flying by…can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!

I usually forget to take pictures I everything I eat in a day, but not today! I’m super pumped to join Jenn over at Peas an Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday!

20130115-192801.jpg

Breakfast

20130115-194343.jpg

A mixed berry smoothie with skim milk, Greek yogurt and protein powder. Totally forgot to add the chia seeds, hemp hearts and ground flax seed, oops! Next time!

Snack

20130115-195628.jpg

After my 3 mile run, I wolfed down 2 Eat Clean Honey Peanut Butter Cups and some strawberries.

Lunch

20130115-194841.jpg

Lunch was leftover Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Pears and Parmesan.

Snack

20130115-195845.jpg

After my workout I was starving! Unfortunately all I had left to eat were plain old carrot sticks. They did not hit the spot 😦

Dinner

20130115-195952.jpg

Hubby made a yummy dinner tonight. Ham, bacon-cheddar scallop potatoes and broccoli. Yum! I love it when I don’t have to make dinner 🙂

Snack

20130115-201217.jpg

Yep, that’s a wagon wheel! I haven’t had one of these since elementary school! I could not resist buying a box at the grocery store last night, lets hope my husband eats the other 7 or I’m going it have to do a lot of running to burn them off!

Overall today was a pretty good food day – minus the wagon wheel. Packing a lunch and snacks definitely helped me stay on track. I wish I would have brought a little bit more to snack on. I’ll have to remember that for Friday.

Do you pack a lunch and snacks to take to work?
I’m in desperate need of healthy snack ideas, please share!
