What I Ate Wednesday

Here is your first dose of 'What I Ate Wednesday'! Every Wednesday I will share what I consume in a day. Below is a glimpse of what I ate. Under each picture I'll explain a bit more. Having a toddler, balancing class, and life I am all about easy, practical, healthy meals. Enjoy! 

Breakfast

I usually have a scoop of either peanut butter or almond butter before I make breakfast. I am too hungry to wait!

As much as I LOVE coffee, I have given up caffeine for a while. Here I have decaf english breakfast tea with 2% milk. I need 2% or whole milk to accompany my hot beverages. I like the consistency of the higher fat milk in my coffee or tea.

Here and below are mine and Robert's breakfast. Oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, maple syrup, and sunflower seeds. I almost always make oatmeal with milk, I like the thicker consistency and it keeps me fuller longer. I also usually make Quaker rolled oats, the quick stove top kind. Today I made it from individual packs. Make sure if you buy the packs, (which are very convenient) there is NO sugar. Read the nutrition label, there should be 0g or <1g sugar.

Lunch

Today's lunch was left overs. Delicious sandwiches from  The Perfect Blend . One half was grilled chicken caesar on a spinach wrap and the other was grilled veggies, hummus, feta cheese on whole grain toast. Very nice when I don't have to prep my lunch!&nbsp;

Clearly those sandwiches were delicious. Robert could be the slowest eater out there!&nbsp;

Afternoon Snack

I should note I eat lunch early, around 11:30 everyday so come afternoon, I am hungry! Today I was out and about so I grabbed one of these bars. First time I've tried them and pretty good, sweet. I have been craving things on the sweeter side so this did the trick.&nbsp;

Dinner

The dreaded 'Salmon Monday', just kidding, well not if you ask my husband. We usually try and have fish twice a week, one day being Monday and the other usually Wednesday. Here is salmon cooked on the grill will EVOO, salt and pepper, steamed broccoli with parm, wild rice with EVOO and salt. Robert eats what we eat most nights.&nbsp;
