Hi guys! Happy midpoint of the week!
I’m giving a glimpse into my life today with another What I Ate Wednesday. Don’t forget to check out some of the other yummy eats!
I had a slower morning on Monday (which was much needed), since I didn’t see clients until the afternoon and evening. I made some eggs, and plopped one on a piece of toast with avocado, and the other over some sauteed kale with roasted spaghetti squash seeds (SO GOOD!). On the side was a brown rice/sweet potato burger that Ed actually made a few nights ago. He has made me some great dinners on nights when I have clients until late. I sent him this recipe, which he adapted a little bit!
Morning snack was some tortilla chips and hummus, while catching up on some emails. Then, it was a lot of charting and responding to some inquiries about our wellness programs. I also had a new client, and those visits usually take about 90 minutes. I hate to be hungry during them since we are talking about food afterall, so I always have a snack before hand.
We ordered lunch to our office from Viva Chicken. I got the power salad with a blend of romaine and kale, edamame, avocado, corn, peppers, queso cheese, and chicken. You can’t order something from Viva Chicken without the chicken. It’s peruvian style and is soo flavorful. And I have to try each and every sauce, naturally. I’m a total dipper at heart.
I had an unexpected afternoon break between clients so I ran to the post office to send something out I sold off Ebay. Grabbed a decaf iced coffee while I was out.
By the way, it was so reassuring to be back in Boston last week and see everyone drinking iced coffees. It’s the norm. I sure do loved my iced coffee!
I had a sweet snack a few hours later. I had late clients, and on those days I basically pack my whole kitchen snack shelf. Thanks to FNCE, I have a humongous stash of snacks that may last me through the end of November. I tried this Udi’s snicker doodle cookie and dipped it in sunbutter. I urge you to do this because it was so so amazing! PS – yes, sunbutter is making individual size portions now. Great snag from FNCE. I saw them in Harris Teeter the other day too while doing a grocery store tour!
Then, I had two late clients who got metabolic tests. It’s such a cool test that we do to test your basal metabolic rate, so people can understand where they stand. You can read more about metabolism here. I snacked on some fruit while recapping those visits. Strawberries and pineapples are some of my favorite fruit flavors together! (Aside from strawberries and bananas).
Dinner turned out to be leftover vegetarian lasagna spaghetti squash that we had made a few nights earlier. It was really good. I subbed cottage cheese for ricotta cheese to cut back on some of the fat and add in more protein. I also added in some chickpeas too!
Otherwise, I’m starting the tapering period for my marathon. I can’t believe it’s a week and a half away! I feel that my appetite is at its peak right now, so I’m just making sure to choose quality fuels that I know will help me feel good. I have my last longer speed session tomorrow, and then I plan on getting a good long stretch/yoga session in.
Do you trust your significant other to follow a recipe?
Favorite seasoning to roast your spaghetti squash/pumpkin seeds? I love olive oil, garlic, sea salt and a sprinkle of pepper!
