WIAW Back in Action!!
After taking an extra long break from the What I Ate Wednesday madness, I’m finally back with a look at my daily eats!
I tried something new today. Monica from Run Eat Repeat posted a two ingredient pancake recipe, so I thought I’d give it a try. I used one scoop of protein powder and 1/2 cup of egg whites (she used 1/3 cup). Poured it all into a pan to cook. It seemed like the pancake was a little runny, so I thought I’d change it up and make it more like an omelet. I put some almond butter in the middle and tried to fold it over, then it proceeded to break in half. Oh well. I flipped a few times to let the almond butter melt inside and then threw it on a plate with some sugar free syrup.
It did not taste like a pancake and had a very strange texture,but for 300 calories and 45 grams of protein, I’ll definitely make it again!
Throughout the morning at work, I sipped on some coffee and chugged my water.
Many bathroom breaks were needed.
Lunch 11:00 am:
Sorry, this does NOT look appetizing! I brought a leftover buffalo turkey burger for lunch and topped it with a wedge of laughing cow light swiss cheese, fat free ranch, and more buffalo sauce. On the side were some cucumbers and a fuji apple.
Snack 3:30 pm:
I soon as I got home, I dug into this Pure Protein bar. 180 calories and 20g of protein!
Dinner 5:45 pm:
Since I’m posting at 4:00, I obviously haven’t had dinner yet. But, I’m bringing this microwavable bag of veggies in a cheese sauce and some sweet potato wedges (that are still cooking) to church with me for dinner. I’ve also got a caramel rice cake and pumpkin butter for “dessert.”
Snack 8:30 pm:
If I’m hungry again when I get home from church, I usually have a snack. Lately I’ve been eating rice cakes and peanut butter, but I think tonight I’m going for one of the Chobani bites I have in the fridge. I’ve just got to decide if I want caramel pineapple or coffee with dark chocolate. It’s a hard decision guys…. the struggle is real.
