It’s that time again, time for another What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW). Head over to Peas & Crayons to check out other blogger meal ideas and recipes.
I’m really ironing it out this week. Given my dizzy spell and exhaustion, I figured a little extra iron might do my body good. Heck, it couldn’t hurt, right?
1st Breakfast – rice cake & peanut butter
2nd Breakfast – Red River Cereal, oats, blueberries, and a dash of cinnamon (The Red River Original All Natural Hot Cereal is something my dad recommended. Here’s the ingredients list: cracked wheat, cracked rye, and flax seeds. Winner!)
Snack: Think Thin Crunch, apple cranberry flavor (ohmygoshgobuythisnow… yeah, it’s that good)
Lunch: iron bowl (trimmed, skinless chicken thigh, spinach, kidney beans, and white mushrooms – I added about 2 TBS salt-free tomato sauce as an after thought so that the little bit of vitamin C from the tomatoes would help my body absorb the iron, though spinach does have some C of its own. Also, chicken thighs have more iron and zinc than breasts, but there is also more fat to look out for.)
Snack: apple & Oikos Greek yogurt (this vanilla one is good, but it doesn’t compare to their awesome caramel flavor)
Dinner: sweet potato, part of a baked chicken breast, broccoli, and parmmmmmm… good
Dessert: I know, I know… it’s a lotta food, but what the belly wants, the belly gets. Insert 1/2 c ice cream and some ginger thins here!
- What’s your favorite Greek yogurt flavor? I’m normally into plain, but I tell ya, that caramel is awesome.
- Do you ever focus on certain nutrients at a time?
