Hey! Thanks so much for your amazing comments on my wedding planning post.I have read all of them and I am in the process of responding. I feel like I a) got some great ideas and advice and b) got to know some of you! When the sharing isn’t so one-sided it makes me happy because I feel more connected to who’s reading. So thank you for taking a moment out of your day to comment and share!
I write a recent eats post about once a week where I give a holistic view of what I ate for the week for breakfast, lunch and dinner but rarely do I show everything I eat in the span of one day. I get a lot of questions about snacking and my pre- and post-workout nutrition so hopefully this will give you a better idea of what an actual day of eating looks like for me.
I typically eat breakfast between 7 and 8 a.m. On this day I was very undecided on what I wanted to have for breakfast so I ate probably the equivalent of one serving of this pumpkin spice granola from Whole Foods while surveying the kitchen.
I ended up going with two eggs scrambled with Kerrygold salted butter, grapes and figs and a pumpkin muffin with about a tablespoon of almond butter. I also had a cup of black coffee with collagen powder.
I met a friend for a run/walk at 11:30. We covered four miles. Three running, one total walking. The only thing I missed taking a picture of this day was about 10 Trader Joe’s honey wheat pretzel sticks that I ate when I got home from my run. I was hungry but also wanting to shower before I ate lunch so I took the bag into the bathroom with me (haha) and finished it off while I got cleaned up.
Lunch around 1:15 p.m. was a Cedar’s spinach wrap with dijon mustard, mayonnaise, avocado, turkey, two slices of salami, white cheddar cheese and spinach. I heated/pressed it in a skillet and served it with a sliced pear. Oh, I also dipped it in Primal Kitchen ranch dressing. I have no idea where the desire to add salami to my wrap came from but I bought some at the grocery after my run when I was running in to grab a few other things.
This is the scene in our house every single night. Some sort of chips and hummus or salsa while prepping lunch. Usually hummus. I love so many brands and flavors but this Roots mango sriracha is definitely up there on the list of faves.
Dinner was chili topped with avocado and plain full-fat greek yogurt, kale salad and corn bread. I used this corn bread recipe and it was really good (there is a lot of butter in it so…..). I shared my chili recipe on Instagram last night. Head over there to check it out. It’s my dad’s go-to recipe and it’s super basic and easy. You can have it prepped and simmering away in less than 15 mins.
I cook, Tanner sends me to the couch while he cleans and then brings me chocolate when he comes to join me. It’s not a bad setup we have going. 😉 I think this Endangered Species dark chocolate with caramel sea salt is my favorite bar at the moment (we always have several).
And other than a bunch of water, that wraps it up!
