What I Ate Wednesday: “Annie’ Knows Asian” Edition

It’s time again for 2 Wednesday things: inappropriate office jokes regarding the word hump and the always-popular, What I Ate Wednesday.  I’m excited to share my eats with you.  They aren’t pretty, but they are nutritious, filling, and delicious!

I’m back to my 3-part breakfasts.  I start with half a banana before my workout, and then I have an all-natural, vanilla, whey protein shake with water after the workout.

My real, sit-down breakfast includes more of my Love Grown Foods granola with all-natural, fat-free, plain yogurt.  I wish it were organic yogurt, but my grocery store doesn’t sell plain, organic, fat-free yogurt.  Bummer.

Lunch is the same Monday through Friday this week, and it’s awesome.  I’m having a whole wheat wrap with tuna, broccoli slaw, and 1 TBS of Annie Chun’s teriyaki.  Oh, and there’s also a side of peach.

Annie – thank you for making my lunch both yummy and HFCS-free.  What can I say?  Annie knows Asian!

lunch2

Snack consists of cherries and 115 grams of 2% cottage cheese.  The fat and protein in the cheese keeps me satisfied for quite a while.  I’ve also been snacking when I get home from work.  Whoops!  I’ve kept it healthy, like the remaining half of the banana with 1 TBS peeb.

Earlier this week, Kev and I had natural chicken sausages two nights, and I’ll get to enjoy a sweet potato the next two nights.  Kev wanted birthday steak last night, so I got half a filet.  I told ya’ my eats weren’t pretty this week!

dinner

Did you expect to see birthday cake as a dessert?  Although I offered to make a little something, I knew Kev would decline.  He doesn’t eat sweets.  Crazy, right?  You know what that means… more ice cream for me!!!

  • Do you plan your meals out for the week, or do you roll with whatever’s in the house?

By the way, thanks so much for the book ideas!  I think I need to add Hunger Games, other The Girl Who… books, and Poacher’s Son to my list (just to name a few).  There were a ton of good suggestions!

campeón del burrito

This weekend, I was the campeón del burrito. It takes a lot to be the burrito champ, but I earned the title this weekend. I enjoyed a day off from work Friday, but I spent it working on the house. Kevin and I took a much needed break from housework on Saturday. We spent the afternoon at the lake, and then partied it up the rest of the night.

I joined about 15 other people to celebrate a friend’s birthday at a pretty awesome Mexican restaurant. Even though it was a big group, everyone really enjoyed their food and received decent service. I ordered the steak burrito. Mmmm… beef.

It was huge! I didn’t eat my beans and rice as a side, and I pulled most of my rice out of my burrito. I was still totally stuffed! Oh, and if you were wondering, that’s a Dos Equis Amber on the side. Perfect pairing – as usual.

leftover

I took my remnants to-go, which turned out to be an excellent decision. I’ll spare you party details, but trust me, come 3:30 a.m., I was really happy to have those leftovers! I shared, so Kevin was happy to have them too (best wife ever).

The next morning, about 10 of us all met up for brunch. Wow. Worst brunch ever. The food was cold. The menus were misleading, and service was terrible. Even the hashbrowns were pitiful.

I ordered an egg, onion, pepper, and black bean burrito, or so the menu said. There was actually turkey sausage in it too, which upset one of the vegetarians in our party. I ate it anyway even though I’m not a fan of breakfast sausage.

I made up for the cruddy brunch when I made my dinner. It was soooooo good! As you can see, it was a spinach wrap filled with homemade yummus (aka: hummus), a few kalamata olives, and grilled veggies.

The grilled veggies included a portabello mushroom cap, eggplant slice, and some zucchini. I then pressed it all together. Delish! Of course, I also enjoyed a post-dinner treat (2 servings of Vanilla Almond Special K and unsweetened almond milk).

Now it’s time to face the week. Wish me luck!

What was the best thing you did this weekend?
