I have never blogged about what I ate in a day before, so here is my first attempt for #What I Ate Wednesday. (This is actually what I ate on Monday this week.)
I keep breakfast pretty simple. I have a bowl of cereal with almond milk (today it was Kix, which isn't too too bad sugar-wise). I also always have at least one piece of fruit. Today I had a peach (loads of fiber to help get me through until my late lunch at work). I also have a bunch of clementines hanging around, so I ate one of those as well. LOVE clementines - taste just like candy :-)
Lunch usually features some sort of leftover. Today's highlight was some over-a-week-old Minted Potato and Chickpea Curry. It still tasted great - I adore chickpeas. I always bring some cut-up veggies to snack on: celery, carrots, and mushrooms. Is anyone else like me and absolutely can't get enough of mushrooms? I also ate an apple and another of the ubiquitous clementines.
Dinner always starts out with one of my husband's huge, awesome, colorful salads (I usually add some Italian dressing). I forgot to snap a picture of my plate before I ate, so I had to take the official dinner photo of my spaghetti squash and meatballs in a leftover container. We just put some spaghetti squash in with some Trader Joe's Meatless Meatballs (very tasty) and some sauce. The spaghetti sauce that I have pictured only had a small bit left, so I added an additional half jar of Classico's Red Pepper sauce.
Snacks, 5:15p.m. and 10:00p.m.
I always enjoy a banana on my short commute home from work. I take a bite at each red light. (I took the photo while parked, don't worry!) After dinner was all cleaned up and lunches for tomorrow were made, I enjoyed a small bowl of yogurt with blueberries and a generous amount of cinnamon. It hit the spot for a sweet end to the day.
I don't think photographing my food will become a daily habit, since my breakfasts remain pretty stagnant (cereal, a piece or two of fruit, and some tea). I also have pretty much the same lunch - leftovers, some cut-up veggies, an apple, and a banana as a snack on my drive home. Dinner is usually the only variable most weeknights. I like the idea of doing this once a week, though. It certainly helped keep me on my toes and mindful of what I was putting into my body.
