What I ate Monday…

I like showing my Mondays for my WIAW for a couple reasons:

1) It shows you all some ideas for packing food for lunch (even though I tend to pack the same thing…) since I have to eat lunch and dinner at school.

2) I can write it on Tuesday and have it ready to go! Haha


So there you go, that’s why you get my Monday eats on What I Ate Wednesday! If you’ve never heard of WIAW, be sure to check it out on Peas and Crayons!

Peas and Crayons

Before my HIIT workout from Monday, I had half a banana to give me some energy for the gym. When I got home, it was time for breakfast! I made some banana chia oats and then on the side a little bit of Greek yogurt mixed with pumpkin and cinnamon.

To make the oats, I put 1/3 C oatmeal, 1/3 C water, 1/3 C almond milk and 1 T chia seeds in the saucepan before I left for my workout. This allowed the chia seeds some time to thicken up. By the time I got back, all the liquid had been absorbed!

Then I added another 1/3 C water and heated up the oats. When they were near done, I mixed in a smashed 1/2 banana. Ta da! Very voluminous, delicious and nutritious! You should try adding Chia Seeds to your meals sometimes. They are called a “superfood” and are a great source of Omega 3’s and more easily digested than Flax! Plus they’re fun when they thicken things up…

That morning I was really feeling the “Mondays” so I wasn’t so much in the mood to pack both lunch and dinner… Normally on Wednesday I’ll only pack one meal and let myself buy the other. So I decided to switch Monday and Wednesday this week and buy something for lunch! Apparently I am a creature of habit, because I hit up I Dream of Falafel again! I loved it the first time I went and keep going back! The guy who works the cash register remembers me and knows not to add pita bread to my order! Love them.

I got the salad with chicken and raita sauce… again. It’s a winner. I might try the falafel next time though – mix it up a bit!

For my afternoon snack, I had packed an apple (un-pictured) and a Bobo’s Oat Bar. I’ve talked about them before, but I love these bars and was so excited when I saw the Whole Foods started carrying them! Now my poor friend who lives in Colorado doesn’t have to send them to me anymore!

However, when I got the link to put into this post, I noticed that they had regular bars… and gluten free bars. Apparently the fact that their package says “wheat free” does not mean that they are gluten free… And now I know why I wasn’t feeling awesome last night. Winning.

I also got a Kombucha at Whole Foods this weekend to sip on. I actually make these things last all week. Carbonation bothers my stomach and I can’t drink the whole thing, I just sip on a little bit each day! This one is passion fruit… I still like the guava the best.

For dinner, I ate the oat bar and the salad I brought. It was a simple mix of kale, beets, roasted butternut squash and Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard Dressing.

When I got home from school around 8:30 I was a little hungry (since I had a salad and oat bar at 5:30 before class…) So I decided to make myself a delicious Chocolate Mousse Protein Cupcake!

Aaaaand then I made a chocolate chip one… It’s like potato chips for other people, you just can’t have one! So delicious.

If you haven’t tried out these recipes, you MUST! You can also substitute the T of protein powder for 1 or 2 more T of normal flour!

What is something you just can’t have one of??

What is your favorite kind of granola bar?
