It’s What I Ate Wednesday!

Thanks Jenn for hosting! 🙂

Usually I show you my food from Wednesady, but today I thought I’d share my food from Tuesday. *Gasp* 😉

Breakfast

Plain Chobani, vanilla, splenda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, chopped apple, and almond butter to top it off!

Lunch

Leftover pork chop from Monday night dinner, baby carrots, and a vanilla Oikos.

Afternoon Snack

Revolution protein bar from Pure Protein. LOVE this! Tastes like a snickers but with only 2g of sugar and 20g of protein!! I had this after my terrible run yesterday. 😉

Dinner

I decided to get creative in the kitchen last night and made tuna cakes. Since I’m not counting calories, it was so much easier to experiment with different ingredients! They were delicious! I put the cakes on top of some cooked broccoli slaw and had a sweet potato on the side. I’ll post the recipe soon!

Dessert

I actually had a mug of blueberries and almond butter warmed up in the microwave last night, but I wanted to show you guys the dessert I’ve been enjoying recently.

This would be CCK’s 1 Minute Chocolate Cake. I had to substitute a few ingreadients. Like regular flour instead of coconut flour, pumpkin instead of oil, and splenda instead of sugar. The cake itself comes out to be around 110 calories, but of course I like to add a little scoop of peanut butter on top! 🙂

Well, that’s litterally everything that I ate yesterday(minus my 3 cups of coffee and amino drink during my run).

**********

Today is day 3 of the challenge, and we started out at the gym with the hubs working arms and chest.

 I’ve also got a 5 mile run to knock out this afternoon, so I know I’ll have to eat more calories to fuel myself. I’m actually thinking about eating dinner at church tonight. I usually bring my own dinner to be healthy, so I haven’t eaten a Wednesday night dinner in years! This will be a big step for me! Anyway, I also plan on being smart about my run this afternoon and start out slow. We’ll see how it goes!

Thanks for joining me on What I Ate Wednesday!

      I usually snack a lot too, but now that I’m teaching all day again, I don’t have time to snack! 😦

    That minute mug cake looks fantastic. Pumpkin would be a great sub for oil, and flour for coconut flour too. Glad it turned out well. I need to make that soon!

    And I can’t wait for that recipe. I LOVE tuna.
