WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY #5: SNACK MONSTER

Welcome to another edition of What I Ate Wednesday, and muchas gracias to the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons for hosting. 

Tuesday (yesterday) started like most... 6AM alarm clock, 6:30AM spin class. I don't know about you, but I had a TOUGH time getting out of bed at 6 on Mon & Tues. I'm guessing it had something to do with the fact that a) it was still dark out and b) it was 55° out.

After cycling, I was elated to grab a venti blonde at Starbucks. Since I was going straight home, I decided to use my organic half and half.

I go through breakfast phases. For a few weeks, I'll only want cereal. Then for the next few weeks, I'll only want a smoothie. This week, I'm going through an oatmeal phase. I've been waking up shivering so this helps warm me up. Usually I only add half a banana and a bit of brown sugar, but yesterday I was feeling saucy, apparently.

Late morning I was still hungry, so I had half a cup of Honest-O's with a handful of blueberries and a splash of almond milk.

I wasn't in the mood for a big lunch, so I kind of ate it in parts. First up was half an Ezekiel English muffin with turkey and cheese and some red grapes.

Next was a smoothie with kale, almond milk, soy milk (ran outta almond), banana, chocolate protein powder, and almond butter.

I have been SO snacky recently. I'd blame it on the cardio, but I don't do cardio every day. For my late afternoon snack, I went with a tumbler of Tazo Sweet Cinnamon Spice Tea and these recently discovered honey roasted almonds. (They are AMAZING.)

Dinner was a house salad from a local Mexican restaurant. Mixed greens, swiss chard, roasted corn, tortilla strips, and cilantro lime dressing...

...and a side of black beans. This place always sends huge servings. I didn't even finish a quarter of this!

And for dessert, I needed my pumpkin fix. I got a mix of pumpkin pie and vanilla bean fro yo topped with carob chips.

Happy Wednesday! What are you eating today?
