Oh, look! It’s Wednesday again! How did that happen? Not that I am complaining because Monday and Tuesday are my worst favorite days of the week… But Wednesday also means it’s time to join the What I Ate Wednesday party hosted by Jenn! so that makes it just a little bit more exciting! This month’s theme is green food and to be honest, I did HORRIBLE eating green food today… I am sort of discovering that my stomach + vegetables = So I had to kind of make do and stretch things a little. Sorry?! Another thing I totally failed at this week was taking pictures of everything I ate. I got the major meals but there was SO much extra snacking today that I didn’t even bother to try to photograph all the handfuls, etc. I blame my Unplanned Planned Rest Day yesterday for this snacky-ness. Why does that always happen? Rest Day = Starved Day? Anyways, enough tangent talk… here is my food from yesterday!
Breakfast was so good this morning! One of my favorite recipes is Edible Perspective’s Buckwheat bakes that I make with a whole banana and egg whites but then instead of baking it in a dish or the microwave, I like them as pancakes! They are really dense and filling and keep me full as long as anything (read, not super long…) I topped today’s cakes with blueberry jam and Sugar Cookie Nut Butter with GREEN sprinkles! Ha – my green part of this meal
My morning snack today was two slices of homemade banana bread with almond butter. Again, very tasty but not green at all. I guess I should have at least put it in a green container or something?
Lunch was good but not as filling as I initially thought… But it did have some green!
Potatoes, chicken and green peas with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I was going to have this ginger in water after lunch but ended up having some ginger candies instead. I am trying to cure my after lunch stomach aches that I get every.single.day at work so ginger is one of my experiments. So far we are 1/1 for pain free days this week…
Oh look! A little more green! This was snack #1 after lunch and was some cooked millet, lettuce, hard boiled eggs, lemon juice and dill. It was surprisingly delicious but I could have easily eaten 3x this much… so instead I had some rice cakes and a Justin’s packet about an hour later. All things that I was going to try to avoid for two weeks but oh well. I was hungry and it was all I had!
Once I finally got home from work, I couldn’t make it until dinner so I had a few little things while dinner was cooking. I was initially planning fish, spaghetti squash and veg but coconut flour pancakes ended up winning out… fish just sounded HORRIBLE tonight…
Dinner turned out pretty though! And just a wee bit green! Coconut flour waffles with coconut and agave on top with green egg omelet on the side!
Since this day was supposed to be a rest day to relax, I had all kinds of ideas of how to spend my time and shows to watch on TV, etc. and yet it’s almost 8pm and I have not done any of that yet… oh well! Maybe next rest day?
Would you eat green eggs like in the picture above? They tasted slightly spinach-y but not horrible, considering!
