What I Ate Wednesday

I'm not sure if it's because we have a 3 day weekend coming up and I'm excited to escape the heat for a while, but MAN this week is going by slowly! I am glad it's Wednesday though because I'm taking my mom to see what I think is my new #1 wedding venue choice. As we all know I'm horrible at making decisions, so I'm hoping she will love it too, and it will make it that much easier. I don't know how I'm ever going to pick a dress... ahh I don't even want to think about having to make that choice!

Anyway, I digress, as usual. On to WIAW!


We start off with the usual- egg whites scrambled with spinach, mushroom, onion, and jalapeno. Actually, I take that back, it's a little different because I did add in a yolk this morning, for good measure :) I also grabbed my usual on the way to work: Trenta unsweetened, no water green tea. Have you ever watched the folks at Starbucks make green teas? I swear it's like half water! 
Meal 2 was the usual again too-- cottage cheese with cinnamon and Truvia and a handful of almonds. For lunch I had an awesome spinach salad topped with salsa chicken, black beans, greek yogurt, and tapatio. For snack I had turkey meatloaf with carrots, and dinner was clean pizza. We are a little addicted to that right now! Before bed I had the usual casein pudding, and I added a little bit of peanut butter. Yuuuum. 
Off to finish up the rest of this long week and spend some vacay time with B!

  2. I always order my teas at Starbucks with no water. Then it always makes me laugh that they still shake it.

    What venues are you looking at?? I got married in Mesa. There's so many great wedding venues in the Phoenix area!

  4. It's made with half water because it's usually brewed extra strong. It's shaken with ice to make it cold. Ask for it unshaken and you will notice a difference :) (ex-barista)

  5. Awesome tips on the tea! I always though it was watery but never thought to ask for no water. DUH!! lol.

    I was also wondering what kind of coconut oil you would recommend using? I get confused there are SO many kinds and brands. Thanks!!

  6. i'm not sure where you live, but we got married at Firerock Country Club in Fountain Hills. We lived in Scottsdale, so FH wasn't too far for us. All of our guests stayed at ft. mcdowell hotel and casino. it was awesome for out of town guests. they have an awesome pool. and the casino gave ppl something to do at night, plus live music!
    the venue is a golf course, and is BEAUTIFUL! its VERY affordable too, which is weird bc it's a private golf course, and VERY expensive to be a member. they only do weddings on saturdays, so they aren't pushing you in and out to get ready for another wedding. the only thing is that it only fits 150 ppl. (which was plenty for us, as we wanted a smaller venue/wedding) most ppl said it was the most intimate wedding they have been to.
    ok enough of my rant:) check it out!! :)

    1. They add additional water to the tea after it is made.
