Wow, can you believe March is drawing to a close? That means this is the second to the last Green What I Ate Wednesday hosted by Jenn of Peas and Crayons :(
I once again was not very good with the green eats but I had a little something at all meals:) Plus, this was my food from St. Patrick’s Day so there was even more reason to Green things up! Here is what I ate last Saturday!
I planned to go to a 10k race for St. Patrick’s Day so my eats were a little shuffled up. *Shamrock Shuffle, get it? Sorry, anyways… The race was not until 10am and I knew there was no way I could last that long on only a few pieces of toast so I decided to attempt eating a basic but more filling bowl of oats before driving and then running. I made by bowl with plain oats, cinnamon, a banana and a little coconut butter. I also sprinkled a little green sugar on top, you know, for the holiday and all
After the race that will not be discussed, I was feeling really miserable and not hungry at all… I drank some water because I felt really dehydrated even though I had not run at all but then wanted nothing to do with more food for quite some time. Once I finally decided I needed to eat something, I unpacked my picnic car ride lunch! Our race was about 1.5 hours away so we were smart and packed lunch! Bagels with peanut butter and apricot jam, GREEN grapes and a protein latte thing that was OK, but way too sugary…
After we’d been home a few hours, I was still feeling really off so decided to have a snack to try and feel a little more energetic. This actually helped quite a bit and finally brought me back to the land of the living. Chobani Blood Orange yogurt, freeze dried fruit and Love Grown Foods cranberry pecan granola. Best meal of the day so far!
After a trip to spend my entire paycheck at Trader Joe’s we came back with a nice dinner to cook as well as an appetizer to tide us over while everything cooked. Falafel chips, Lentil Marsala dip and baby carrots. This dip is fantastic! If you like Indian food, you need to try this dip. I could literally eat it with a spoon but I was good and only ate a serving or two
Another awesome find at TJ’s was Zico coconut waters. I got a Mango one that was super tasty and refreshing but Sister got a chocolate one that was TO DIE FOR! Like drinking chocolaty cereal milk! So, so good and dairy free!
Dinner was really tasty! We are having ridiculous weather here right now… 80 degrees in Winter! That is unheard of for us. Normally, we are getting snow right now. So needless to say, I took the opportunity to get out the grill for dinner cooking! This meal tasted SO good! Grass fed steaks from our local Co-op, grilled baby bok choy from TJs, roasted brussel sprouts and some grilled portobello
steaksmushrooms. YUM! And Green!
And of course, what night is complete without a bedtime snack… if I even try to avoid it, I wake up in the night hungry so what the heck, I’ll just have that snack, thankyou!
Cooked millet, almond milk, cinnamon, microwaved for about a minute with banana chips on top. Sounds weird but it’s one of my new favorite bedtime snacks!
So on that note, hope you are have a good Wednesday! Now I am off to find one of those chocolate coconut waters…..
