What I Ate Wednesday

So stoked that some of you have agreed to participate in the What's Beautiful challenge with me! I think it will be so much fun and setting goals for myself is one of my favorite things to do. Today is considered a rest day from the gym, but since I'm committed to being active all through October, B and I are going to take Charley for a walk later this afternoon. 
 Now on to yesterday's eats! 


I grabbed two apple cinnamon protein muffins before heading to the gym, and ate them off of my best china... aka a paper towel. These things are seriously awesome, and now that it's Honeycrisp season, they're even better! They are a total staple in my diet because they are quick and easy, I don't know what I'd do without them... plus they have very few ingredients and take hardly any time at all to make. 


The usual! Cottage cheese and toast for mid morning snack. This bread is actually Food For Life's gluten free bread (instead of Ezekiel) and it's really good! Definitely has a different texture to it, almost more like a pound cake- but it's great toasted with cinnamon and coconut oil. 


For lunch I had a protein style turkey burger with lettuce and tomato and a yam on the side. I love putting coconut oil and cinnamon on my yams! 



I'm clearly on a burger kick lately because for my afternoon snack I had a protein style bison burger! Roasted veggies on the side were AWESOME. I haven't made my veggies like this in a long time and it was so good... just drizzle a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and then bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. Even B loved these! 




I got home from work late so unfortunately I didn't have time to try the new recipe I had planned, but I'll definitely try it tonight! For dinner I just made a quick over easy egg with 2 additional egg whites and an almond flour pancake on the side. I clearly devoured the pancake before I remembered to snap a pic. Darn. 



I've been switching up my pre-bed snack lately and adding almond milk to my casein pudding instead of water and then freezing it for about 45 minutes. It tastes like chocolate peanut butter soft serve! I'm also using Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk now and I highly recommend it. They just recently came out with the unsweetened version of the vanilla and it's pretty much to die for. 

Happy Wednesday and Happy Birthday to my Dad :)

  1. Love all your eats! I can eat everything here everyday!
    Just curious..why did u switch from almond breeze to silk? And why switch from ezekial to gluten free bread?
    Also are u still eating brown rice wraps and brown rice? Asking because of the reports of arsenic in the rice.
    Thanks!

    2. do you stick to 1T pb/day, are the rest of your fats from coconut oil? (i love coconut oil on my Ezekiel bread and sweet potatoes too!)

    3. Hey Anita, I'm not counting calories right now but I typically keep my healthy fats to 2 servings per day. The amount of coconut oil I use on my toast and yams is very small.

  4. Oh I have been SO wanting to try Silk's Unsweetened Vanilla but don't know anyone who has tried it and I don't want to buy it then not like it and have to toss it. How does it differ from Almond breeze?

    Funny 2 days ago I just started putting my Casin pudding in the freezer too!!!! It is SO YUMMY! Oh and are you doing the muffins as meal 1?

  6. Everything looks amazing! Was the cottage cheese and toast your post workout meal or did you have a shake right after the gym?
