Happy WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) Y’all! Before I share all my eats from yesterday, I gotta’ share how the day started.
I was sleeping peacefully in bed when I felt a lil’ sumpin sumpin on my leg. No big deal; I let it go. I felt it again, and it felt like a big sumpin! My hand shot under the covers and found my cat. Apparently the hubs thought it would be a good idea to let her under the covers at 4 a.m. Guess who didn’t get back to sleep…
When the alarm finally goes off an hour later, I headed out for a short run. (Yes, it’s still totally dark at 5 a.m., just incase you bedheads forgot.) I noticed a person coming out of the trees behind the shadows. I jumped and yelped, and then the person jumped and yelped too. Of course, then that person’s dog yelped again for all of us. It was just some lady in her pajamas walking her dog, but she was coming out from the woods! WTF???
Anyway, it’s time for the spook-free eats.
Breakfast – Green(ish) Smoothie (whey protein, unsweetened almond milk, banana, berries, & spinach)
Snack – Apple (delicious and not pictured)
Lunch – Kale and whole wheat penne in 1/5 cup red marinara (so cheap, so fast, so easy)
Snack – Zucchini with garlic hummus and parm cheese (which I swiped from the break room, score!) and two Wasa Rye crackers once I got home from work
Dinner – Lentil dal with brown batsami rice (Apparently the hubs dislikes lentils; I didn’t think they were unlikable.)
Dessert – 1/2 cup Arctic Zone chocolate
Anyone tried Arctic Zone ice cream? I’m not big fan. It’s overpriced and tastes nothing like ice cream. In AZ’s defense, a half cup of this stuff has only 37 calories. In comparison, half a cup of Ben & Jerry’s chocolate has 250 calories, and the same portion of Edy’s Slow Churned chocolate has 100 calories. AZ also claims to be all-natural, but I wouldn’t exactly call it “real food.”
