Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! You all know what Wednesday means – What I Ate Wednesday! If you are new to WIAW, head over to Peas and Crayons where Jenn is hosting and see what it’s all about! This month the theme is What I Ate Wednesday Goes Green!

Peas and Crayons

I love the theme, I’m a fan of holidays and a whole month of green sounds good to me! Luckily I was craving some veggies on Monday!

Monday morning started with a 5am wakeup call to head to the gym for my first morning of Tina’s Bootcamp! I get up that early so I can be back, showered and ready to leave for school by 7:30am!

Since I knew I wouldn’t have any time to make and eat breakfast in the morning, I whipped up some overnight oats the night before, just like I did for last Monday (and yes, this is a recycled photo…). I also had half a banana before I headed out to the bus to tide me over until I  got to school to eat my oats!

I did make one change to my oats this week. Instead of using 2 T of chia seeds, I just added 1 T of ground flax. Sometimes I feel like chia seeds make my oats taste a little watery and take away some of the flavor. The flax was a good substitute!

For my mid-morning snack I had an apple with some almonds (sorry no picture… I was hungry and forgot. But the colors help, right? You can totally visualize them now)



And then for lunch I ended up buying a salad at a local place called I Dream of Falafel. Normally I get their salad with chicken, but I thought I’d try the beef today! Unfortunately I wasn’t a huge fan of the beef. It was a little greasy and tough, but don’t worry, I sure ate it! I was pretty hungry.

I have classes all day Monday and don’t get home until 7pm, so for my afternoon snack I ended up getting some trail mix from the vending machine. I’d planned on getting some fruit and yogurt from the cafeteria but they were out of both grapes and cantaloupe and the canned oranges and peaches did not look appealing…

I forgot to take a picture but here it is:

It was alright, but had a bit too many yogurt bits for my taste. I would have preferred more nuts for it to be more filling!

Luckily though, it tided me over until I made it home for dinner. I wanted something fast and was really craving veggies, so I made up a spinach salad, topped with steamed eggplant, carrots, broccoli slaw (from trader joe’s) and a hefty dose of Trader Joe’s Avocado Salsa Verde. Gotta get those healthy fats!

On the side, I added a 2% fage yogurt (20g of protein! crazy!) topped with blueberries.

I ate the salad first and then ended up adding 2 T PB2 flour mixed with water and cocoa powder to the yogurt to turn it into more of a dessert! So good.

 

Are you ever stuck with vending machine food? What do you pick?

Do you think chia seeds give things a watery taste? Or is this just me?
