What I Ate Wednesday

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:

Breakfast:
Oatmeal... with milk, chia seeds, grated carrots, banana slices, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon
Apple Cider Chai drink at a local coffee shop

Lunch:
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

Snacks:
Almonds from my handy almond container
2 clementines

Dinner:
Some cukes and dressing while my dinner cooked
Stuffed pepper with rice, black beans, and some veggies and spices
Glass of wine

Snack/Dessert:
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!
