What I Ate Wednesday #97

Posted on Updated on


…and suddenly it’s What I Ate Wednesday again. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Monday was a busy, productive day for me. Since I actually have a more flexible schedule for a change, I’ve been taking advantage of my professor’s office hours. I want to make sure I get off to a good start with my research project, especially since I have no idea what my schedule will be like later in the semester.

Even though I technically could have worked out at another time, I still got up early to get it done—mentally, it sets me up well for the rest of the day. I also tend to wake up with a lot of energy, so it feels good to jump out of bed and hit the gym. Anyway, I was glad to have the rest of my day free to work on projects, clean and meet a friend for tea.

In the spirit of this month’s “Love Your Veggies” theme, there was plenty of colorful produce on the menu for the day.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with flax, chopped pear, and spices, topped with PB & applesauce

Lunch: Leftover quinoa with spinach, roasted veggies, egg whites, and 1/2 an avocado

Snack: Green smoothie—I was too hungry to remember to take a picture

Dinner: Cornmeal-crusted tilapia, mixed greens, a sweet potato with hummus & goat cheese. The crust on the fish didn’t work out so hot, but it tasted great!

Snack: (unpictured) Sliced banana with chocolate PB2

What time of day do you like to work out? What vegetables are you loving lately?

    I am with you on the working out in the morning for definite. Just get up and go. No time to hesitate or think of an excuse not to go! Plus you feel great for the rest of the day!
    Your sweet potato with hummus and goat’s cheese sounds really good. I must try that combo!

      I highly recommend it—it’s been one of my favorite combinations for years!

    I am also a morning workout person!

    This isn’t really new, but I’ve been eating a boat-load of kale lately. Giant kale salads for dinner. And my go-to “comfort veggie” (particularly in the winter) is heating up frozen peas. I can’t get enough of them.

      Totally agree about frozen peas—I have no idea why but they are so freaking good.

    You, eat so healthy, Jess.
    And if I don’t do my workout in the morning I don’t do it at all. Just can’t work out later in the afternoon. Mission impossible!
