WIAW: Keeping the doctor away… and the dentist

Lately, I have learned that readers aren’t crazy about travel posts. Frankly, I don’t blame you, especially when there’s food to gawk at instead. Oh – and baubles too. I’m still gawking over this bauble necklace Kevin got me a month ago. Love it!

Anyway… back to the food. I wanted to run as soon as I got up yesterday, but my rumbling belly said food was more important. When da’ belly speaks, I listen. The run was postponed until after work.

Breakfast: vanilla protein oats with a dash of pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp chia seeds

WIAW 035

Second Breakfast: apple (found this beauty in the break room) & another apple I had already brought for snack (If one apple keeps away the doc, I’ve got the dentist covered too, right?)

Lunch: organic hummus, spinach salad with 1 TBS Annie’s Shitake dressing, and Reduced Fat Triscuits (fancy-schmancy organic crackers weren’t in the cards this week at the grocery store) – Apparently I snapped this a bit late.

WIAW 041

Snack: edamame at work & a heaping spoonful of PB Crave when I got home (pb = run fuel)

WIAW 042 WIAW 044

Dinner: leftover chicken thrown in with mystery carb*, soy sauce, cauliflower, and broccoli

*I bought this grain/seed in the bulk bin at the health food store, but I forgot to label it.  I thought I was cooking quinoa, but since it didn’t get those little spirals when cooked, I think it was actually millet.  I learned the hubs & I like millet.

Snack: a bit of dark chocolate (serious love for TJ’s Dark Chocolate Lover’s Dark Chocolate Bar)

  1. haha love your mystery carb! I actually did the same thing thinking it was quinoa. Millet is pretty tasty. Just had it on Monday.

  2. haha gotta love a mystery carb. hilarious!

  3. TOO funny. We like food talk more than exciting travel!

    I read an article that a high fat snack is the best pre-workout fuel. I’ve had rice cakes w/almond butter. Those seem to work great. I had a nature valley oats and honey granola bar or pretzels too. Not to high fat but usually takes the hunger edge off enough to get me through the workout!

    I thought the same thing about 2 apples.. but sadly I just left the dentist office having a root canal done. boo!

  5. I usually have to eat before I workout. I have NO energy otherwise!

  6. During the week, I don’t eat before the workout. Luckily, my workout is relatively shorter than my weekend workouts, so it’s not too horrible. Plus, I’m a late night snacker. Surely those handfuls of pretzels I have during my last shows tide me over… even just a little. ;)

  7. I don’t eat right before a workout but I try my energy high by eating lots of lean protein and veggies throughout the day.

  8. aww I like your travel posts :)

  9. Ahh edamame! I want that in my life at all times!

  10. I’ve never tried cooked millet! Occasionally I’ll buy the puffs because they’re fun to sprinkle on top of whipped cottage cheese or protein pudding. :) I LOVE your bauble necklace and bright orange top!

  11. My fave workout fuel – apple and sunbutter!

  12. Ha – I jack apples from anywhere I go too. Hotel lobbies, airplanes, my mom’s house…

  13. I eat an apple EVERY day and haven’t been to the doctor in three years. LOL.

    Edamame … so good!

    Hope you had a great day :)
