Hi Guys. I think it was cold out last time I did one of these posts so I thought I’d share with you what I ate yesterday. So, while today is definitely Thursday, we’ll still call it “What I Ate Wednesday,” because it’s actually what I ate on Wednesday 🙂 Boy guys, Wednesday sure was A DAY. Like one of those days that moved so quickly it makes your head spin but moved so slow you constantly found yourself checking what time it was.
Wednesday morning actually started out slow. I woke up at 5:05am without an alarm and decided that instead of waiting until 6:15am to go to bootcamp, I’d just go to the gym and take it easy on the elliptical with some good ‘ole Netflix. Currently switching between Grace and Frankie and House of Cards. Who else watches?! Because I went to the gym an hour earlier than normal, I actually had time to cook a breakfast I hadn’t had in what felt like decades…Anne’s Banana Pancake! I never seem to have ground flax when I make it but I had garbanzo bean flour so I gave that a try and it was perfect. I topped my pancake with fresh blueberries, my homemade whole milk yogurt, and peanut butter. Hit. The. Spot. 🙂 Enjoyed with black coffee!
By the time I arrived to work, it had been almost 3 hours since I had my pancake and I was craving something sweet. I listened to my body, and treated myself to a donut. No shame at all. Enjoyed with the rest of my coffee.
Then I was off to a meeting that would end up being the longest meeting of my life. 2.5 hours later, my body was screaming, feed me! It was lunch time. I like to eat as many veggies at lunch as I can to fill up, and I love that the cafe at our hospital has these amazing veggie salads every day that employees can purchase for .91 cents. Lately, I’ve been bouncing between the broccoli bacon salad or the kale salad. Today was broccoli bacon day! I paired the salad with some leftovers: pulled pork (this recipe + BBQ sauce) + sweet potato + cabbage / spinach salad. So good.
I’m a snacker and today was no different. I got hungry multiple times throughout the afternoon. First were these “banana cookies.” Recipe included only 4 ingredients too! Banana, nut butter, chocolate chips, and oats. Definitely more granola-y than cookie like, but it still tasted good.
Then, a once and a blue moon treat for me, a coke zero. I gave up soda cold turkey a few years ago and rarely crave it now. I usually only want a few sips and that’s what went down here. I put the rest in the fridge and might drink more later in the week.
And because it’s impossible to end the day without chocolate, chocolate. This dark chocolate and orange bar I bought recently. Chocolate paired with a guilty pleasure of mine, Pretty Little Liars. Anyone else watch?
