It has been forever since I remembered to get my photos for a WIAW, but finally I remembered!
So here are my eats from Tuesday! I have started to light weights again in the mornings. I am one of those crazy weird kids who like to workout on an empty stomach so I usually don’t eat a pre-workout snack, I choose two breakfasts after. Although I don’t think it is necessary to include protein powder in your diet I find it so much more convenient than making some type of protein. I have been drinking skoop protein powder. It has a cake batter type taste and although I have just been mixing it with water for work it is so nice to make a nice smoothie with the trader joes cherry blend!
Breakfast #2: One hardboiled egg and one egg white with a side of roasted spinach and peppers
For awhile I had been not eating the egg yolks. I am not a huge fan of the taste but after coming home from work in need of some food due to my lack of fat content in the beginning of the day I decided it was time to add some healthy fat! So the yolks have been a staple in my diet and the taste is definitely catching on!
Lunch: Brown rice, chicken and broccoli and the remaining egg yolk mixed with some apple cider vinegar, mustard and sweetener.
I have been loving brown rice lately! With the temperatures getting colder outside I have been wanting to switch up my usual salads to something more comforting and warm and switching to rice was great it tasted like chicken and rice soup just without the broth.
Afternoon Snack: Rice cake with sugar free syrup, half of a black forest yogurt, and two mini pumpkin muffins topped with peanut butter.
I found a wonderful protein pumpkin muffin recipe online and decided to double it to make muffins, well what do you know I only have a mini muffin tin at my house, so mini muffins they are! They are so good, and sadly I missed the link of the recipe I got them from :(
Dinner: Egg whites with go veggie cheddar cheese, roasted sweet potato and roasted spinach, peppers, and onions seasoned with chopped garlic.
I have been having lactose problems, my digestive system just seems to hate everything good haha but I finally broke down and bought some go veggie cheddar cheese and my oh my it is delicious!
And since I am in love with nighttime snacks I am sure I will have one but I am calling it a night for social media related things for now, so sorry I won’t be sharing (since I type my posts the night before). With rain pounding it is time for some tea, netflix and entertaining this guy! Have a great Wednesday everyone :)
