Happy Humpday! Anyone else having a hard time getting back into the swing of workweek things after a fun-filled, sugar-loaded holiday? I AM!
As a dietitian, I'm often asked what I eat. In honor of #whatiatewednesday, I thought I'd share what I ate yesterday.
When I woke up I packed up breakfast, lunch, and snacks to bring with me for the day. I often pack meals the night before to save time in the morning, but like I said I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I knew I'd be out and about for most of the day, so wanted to be prepared. Most importantly, throughout the day, I listened to my body's hunger cues. Here goes:
Oatmeal... with milk, chia seeds, grated carrots, banana slices, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon
Apple Cider Chai drink at a local coffee shop
Mason jar salad... kale, carrots, beets, cherry tomatoes, tuna salad (mixed with avocado and cilantro avocado dressing), some chickpeas on top
Oikos key lime greek yogurt
Almonds from my handy almond container
Some cukes and dressing while my dinner cooked
Stuffed pepper with rice, black beans, and some veggies and spices
Glass of wine
Homemade applesauce with some peanut butter, 2 dates, and a few chocolate chips
1/2 glass of milk
Remember- dietitians are human too. Everyday is a little different. Somedays we're awesome meal preppers, while somedays we're lazy, tired, or stressed emotional eaters- we're not perfect and don't expect you to be either. We do the best we can to plan ahead and listen to our body's hunger cues. Happy Wednesday!
