Thank you all so much for your comments/suggestions about Charley they are very much appreciated! She is doing better at night with the whining and she has been so good about using her doggie door, such a proud mom! Okay, on to the fun stuff, What I ate Wednesday green edition! I actually forgot it was the green edition, but looking at my photos I think I did pretty darn good with the greens. 

Overnight pumpkin oats make a comeback yesterday morning. I didn't think I would ever say this but I may or may not have over done it on the cinnamon. They kind of look a little chocolate-y, but no, that's just a plethora of cinnamon. 

Pumpkin protein shake with a handful of spinach to make it green!

Chocolate protein bars with a protein glaze on top and cottage cheese with cinnamon and Truvia for snack. 

Dinner leftovers of salmon, baked asparagus and tomato basil brown rice were for lunch. I mentioned on Twitter a couple weeks ago how lately I can be totally fine with eating something and then all of a sudden it completely grosses me out. [hold the pregnant comments!] Well this is what happened with the salmon yesterday. I devoured it the night before for dinner but when I went to eat it for lunch, I could only get about half down before I felt like I was going to yack it back up. Yuck. Salmon will be off the menu for a while.

Turkey chili on a bed of spinach with 1/4 avocado. Don't worry I was ravenous by the time 3pm hit so I completely devoured this without even breathing. 

Fajita salad with the other 1/4 of the avocado and a little pepper jack almond cheese for dinner. No I didn't forget to put a picture in, but yes I did forget to take a picture. Ah. Dummie.

See!? Lots of green. How are you guys doing on getting your greens in everyday? I'm telling you, if you haven't tried a handful of spinach in your shakes you should! You can't taste it one bit so that's basically a free serving of greens :)


  1. I'm with you 100% on the spinach smoothies! I have a hard time eating greens so that works perfectly for me!

  2. Haha those oats totally look like they are chocolate, I usually get my greens by adding them in soups or omelettes that I make! And I add spinach in my smoothies sometimes if I need to take a meal to go!

  3. TOO MUCH CINNAMON?! That's gotta be an oxymoron :0). There can never be to much cinnamon (weeeelll except if your one of those crazy people that have started taking cinnamon shots). I put veggies in everything possible throughout the day. I often joke with people that I may actually OVERDUE the veggies especially my leafy greens lol. Is that possible?

  4. I saw your comment before about drinking the ACV every morning. I do the recipe from Tone it up, do you find any reason I couldn’t make a big pitcher of it so it was ready every morning to save me time. There's has cinnamon, cayenne and organic apple cider. So it's a larger drink. It’s not like it’s fruit or vegetables where it would lose it’s nutrients. Your thought's?
