What I ate Wednesday

I've been meaning to participate in What I Ate Wednesday for a while now, but unless I write things down I forget. So yesterday I remembered it was almost Wednesday and I made a note in my planner and what do you know, I remembered!




If you haven't checked out Peas and Crayons yet, you definitely should! I love seeing everyone else's WIAW posts, even if they aren't all clean. 




Breakfast was an egg white scramble with mushroom (new obsession) and onion with a squeeze of reduced sugar ketchup and 2 slices of toasted Ezekiel bread with cinnamon and Truvia on top. 



After the gym I had a protein shake and 1/2 a banana with freckles. I love it when the bananas have freckles. 



A couple hours in to work I had some overnight oats- Tupperware and plastic spoon style. Can you say classy



I shared my deliciously wonderful taco lunch with you yesterday. 



Afternoon snack was cottage cheese with cinnamon and almonds (not pictured). I realized lately I put cinnamon in at least 4 meals of the day. I may or may not need to go to cinnaholics anonymous sometime in the near future. 



French green beans and southwest dijon chicken was my simple but lovely dinner. Then of course I had my casein pudding right before bed, but you already know what that looks like... okay fine, I forgot to take a picture.  Now, if this Wednesday can just fly by (even though it won't since I go straight from work to class) so it can be tomorrow already that would be great. Want to know why? It's my day of birth! Even though I'll just be working and it will be a normal day it's still so much fun to get all the Happy Birthday messages via text, Facebook, email, smoke singals etc. :)

  2. I have NEVER remembered to to WIAW...I keep meaning to do so and failing miserably. Your meals look delicious! Also, cinnamon is totally a superfood, so you are just THAT much healthier. Also, your tacos look insane! Yummmmy!

  3. Great looking tacos!! I was wondering if you could do a post about the supplements you take such as multi vitamins, fish oil, flax oil, calcium, etc. etc. There's always so much to choose from!

  5. Happy Birthday!!!

    Great idea using Truvia to make cinnamon toast - I'm going to try that with my Xylitol!

  6. I was curious about your post workout shake. I know its the golden rule of weight-lifting to consume a protein and carb (banana) after a workout. However, I was wondering what is an acceptable amount of calories for that post workout meal? Or better yet what is the acceptable amount of protein to consume? Like 6 grams really isn't helpful post workout vs. 20 grams. Hope I'm making sense?
    Thanks!

  7. Hi RW- for any meal you want to shoot for at least 4oz or 20g of protein. So, if you are doing a shake post workout you would do at least 20g (usually one scoop) or you could do a whole food like fish, chicken, or eggs in which case you would shoot for at least 4oz. Hope that helps!

  8. Thanks Little B, very helpful indeed! Oh and one other thing popped in my head regarding protein post-workout. I usually do strength for about an hour first and then roughly 30-45 min cardio after. I wasn't sure if I should supplement the protein drink right after my lifting and then go do cardio or wait till the end of my entire workout? I do put glutamine and BCAA's in my water during the workout.
    Sorry for all the questions ha ha, this is just something I wanted to nail because I know its critical.
    Thanks!
