What We Ate Wednesday

27 Feb

Happy Wednesday! This week is going by fast and we are not complaining. After today only two more days stand between us and spring break. We are happy girls! Today we are linking up with Peas and Crayons for our usual Wednesday blog post of what we ate yesterday #WIAW. Check out the linkup at http://www.peasandcrayons.com

It is so much fun to see what other health foodies like us are eating on a day to day basis. We hope seeing what we eat inspires you to eat healthy too!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and by far our favorite. Yesterday for breakfast we had whipped banana oats with egg whites mixed in and topped it with just a little bit of everything. In that mix included blueberries, peanut butter, banana slices, homemade cranberry sauce, dried cranberries, and nature box trail mix. Mixing in egg whites the last few seconds of cooking adds extra protein. Surprisingly, the addition of eggs is barely noticeable taste wise. Try mixing in egg whites next time you make oatmeal. You may be surprised at how fluffy they make your oats and they will help keep you full all the way to lunch.

Lunch today was a spinach salad topped with scrambled egg beaters, fresh cut vegetables, peppered tofurkey lunch meat, 1/2 medium sweet potato, and blue cheese

After this picture it was topped with some fresh cracker pepper, sea salt, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. We also sipped on some mango green tea throughout the morning and afternoon.

With lunch we also had a red delicious apple on the side. Lately we have been on a huge apple kick and usually have at least one apple a day.

For our afternoon snack we shared a new larabar flavor we’ve never tried before with a green smoothie on the side (1/2 orange, frozen banana, spinach, and 1/2 cup water blended together with ice).

Dinner was put together quickly before we had a date with the library for study hours. We took 1/2 of a whole grain bagel and sandwiched it between pumpkin butter, a morning star sausage patty, mixed greens, red onion, and sautéed mushrooms! We also planned on having a cup of Wolfgang Puck lentil soup on the side but after one bite we were completely turned off. The soup was extremely salty. Definitely a major disappointment.

With only a few minutes to spare we quickly threw together our own soup creation. We started with a base of 8 oz. of Pacific Foods chicken broth and 1/2 cup of water and added in 1 cup of black beans, 2/3 cup of organic frozen vegetables, and fresh spinach. This was taken to the library and greatly enjoyed while catching up on some work 🙂

Finally our night ended around 11 pm with a late night snack that involved low fat cherry yogurt mixed with unsweetened almond milk. Then we put this mixture in our frozen yogurt maker for 20 minutes. Topped with homemade granola it was the perfect end to a fabulous food day!

      You’re right… The leopard mugs definitely make drinking tea even more fun 🙂
