Hi friends! It’s Wednesday….already? This is one week that I want to go super slllllooooowwwww. I’m telling you now, that come next Monday, I will not be ready to go back to work.

Today’s What I Ate Wednesday is a little different because I wasn’t at work. I did still manage to get my share of veggies!


6:45- Time for morning coffee. Yes, I’m that crazy girl that is still up at the crack of dawn for no reason; other than more time to enjoy the day! Since I usually wake up at 4:30, this was technically sleeping in.

7:45- Breakfast was a Banana Flax Paleo Pancake. Instead of 1/4 of a mashed banana and 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree; just use 1 whole very ripe mashed banana. I topped it with 1 tbsp almond butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and blueberries. Definitely, did not disappoint!

10:45- Lunch came early. I had a hair appointment for highlights and a cut; which was at 11:00 and about 45 mins away. I decided that if I didn’t bring lunch along with me, I would be starving by the time I was finished at the hair salon. I brought along one of my Breakfast Sweet Potatoes; topped with 1/4 cup Blueberry Chobani Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup Quinoa-Pumpkin Seed Granola and a serving of PB2. Yes, I ate this while driving (only at the red lights) to my appt….I like to live on the wild side. 😉

2:00- I got home and took full advantage of the beautiful weather. It has been what feels like forever since I’ve actually ran outside and it felt marvelous!

3:30- After my run, I had about 1/4 cup of Mango Chobani Greek yogurt with the last of my Quinoa-Pumpkin Seed Granola and an organic gala apple.

4:30- I got back in the kitchen to prep veggies for dinner, whip up some Snickerdoodle Cashew Butter and work on a new protein bite recipe. I snacked on some Plantain Chips from TJ’s and of course I had to taste the Cashew Butter to make sure it was suitable……it was. Those plantain chips sure are addicting!

6:30- For dinner, we finally tried Trader Joe’s salmon patties. Brad and I weren’t too impressed….I won’t be buying these again. Just FYI, the salmon patties from Costco (Trident brand) are way better. I served the salmon patties on top of a large salad with roasted veggies. In the bowl went; mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, roasted zucchini, squash, kabocha squash and bell pepper. For the dressing; I drizzled lemon juice and 1 tsp of olive oil over the top. Despite the salmon not being all that great, with everything mixed together, dinner ended up being pretty good.

8:15- Oh my goodness…my Keurig has went kaputt….major bummer. We had to get out the old Cuisinart. Luckily, it worked like a charm. Always good to have a “plan B” when it comes to coffee.

With my coffee, I had a Honey Nutbutter Protein Bite. Recipe to come soon…..they are delicious, but I’m still working on perfecting the recipe.

Something to think about….
