It’s my first What I Ate Wednesday of May (thanks to Jenn for hosting). So it’s fitting that my food was all very spring-like and summery feeling. You know what I mean.
Thanks to my personal challenge for May of eating a salad a day, fruits and veggies are a-plenty in my diet right now. I am loving the way I’m feeling! I noticed that before my eye surgery I was craving a lot of comfort food. I think it was just the stress of worrying about the surgery manifesting itself through my cravings and diet. I’m sure glad to be past that now and back into a fresh and healthy greens-filled day of eats!
A Greek yogurt and strawberry parfait. I just mixed a drop or two of honey into a serving of nonfat Greek yogurt and layered it with sliced strawberries (image is old, courtesy of my Instagram, but they always look the same when I make ’em, I promise!)
Breakfast part 2:
Lemon poppyseed protein muffin and a gigantic mug of tea.
For some reason I just wasn’t super hungry on waking, so I just had my yogurt parfait. But then by about 10am my stomach was growling again, so out came my brekkie part 2 :).
A huge salad beast. This one was topped with roasted veg and caramelized tofu strips, a la Kate’s recipe. Don’t forget, I’ll be posting a round-up of all my salad varieties at the end of the month – hopefully I stick to my challenge! It’s been great so far :).
A fabulous green protein smoothie. My favourite combo: vanilla protein powder, a cup of spinach, a teaspoon or two of peanut butter, half a frozen banana and a cup of almond milk. Lovely!
Leftover butternut squash goat cheese quesadillas with avocado cream sauce. This is the People.com recipe I said I wanted to try in last week’s May Blog Love post. It was realllly good (though you only need to make half of the sauce recipe, otherwise you have way too much!). I had a couple of squares of super-dark chocolate for dessert too, of course.
A good ol’ LUNA protein bar. I had Zumba last night and needed a protein bar afterwards! I was tempted to have my second protein shake of the day but in the end I went for the quick fix :). I also had a delicious organic naval orange.
- As always, I showed you mine, now you show me yours! I wanna see what you ate today so link up any WIAW posts of your own in the comments section 🙂
