I woke up this morning reflecting on the new goals I put in place for myself last month. I haven’t been able to follow them perfectly, but that’s to be expected. Overall, I’m just happy to be making strides in the right right direction. Doing more meal planning and keeping track of my meals has been a big help so I figured I’d jump on board the What I Ate Wednesday train again this week and share my eats from yesterday. I was less prepared so a few snacks went straight into my mouth without a photo, but I got all the big stuff for ya.
We woke up and were out of coffee (the horror) so Isaac and I made a quick run to Lamplighter for a fresh bag of beans. I treated myself to an almond milk café au lait. An au lait is just regular coffee with steamed milk. It’s my go-to order but I’ll occasionally spring for a latte if I’m in the mood for espresso.
Once home I whipped up a protein pancake for breakfast. I’ve been on a protein pancake breakfast bender, which is probably a good thing considering our pantry looks like the protein aisle at Vitamin Shoppe right now.
I followed this protein pancake recipe using a sample packet of Plant Fusion that I picked up at Whole Foods. It was good but I still really like Sunwarrrior and Perfect Fit for protein pancakes. I’ve also been experimenting with using Jamie Eason’s Lean Body for Her and Nutrimeal Free from Usana. Now you see why my pantry is packed with protein powder — someone has to test them all.
After a little work I took a break for lunch. I baked some tempeh and put it over a kale salad with red onion, almond slices and a homemade grapefruit dressing. I had a few baked sweet potato chunks and a Fuji apple on the side. I hate soft apples and this one wasn’t as crunchy as I would have liked. :/ Fujis are usually okay, but I like Honeycrisp and Pink Lady apples best.
