We’re halfway through the week guys! I thought today I could share what I ate yesterday just to give other ideas and also hold myself accountable. Why is it that when you write down/take pictures of what you eat you suddenly feel self conscious? Not that I ate terribly but I guess there’s always room for improvement.
A couple months back I had what some might call a “revelation” regarding my diet. Instead of trying these fads like paleo, keto, IF, (I’ve done them all), I’m simply going to be mindful and eat what I want in moderation. This way I’m not depriving myself yet still have control.
With that being said, here’s a peak into what I had yesterday.
Quaker Oats Overnight Oats (Blueberry Banana & Vanilla) – I picked this up on a whim and I’m so glad I did! I’m a big fan of cold overnight oats but sometimes it’s a hassle to put it together or you run out of ideas on what to put in the bowl. This was super simple to prepare; you just add milk (in this case, I used vanilla almond) and then literally OVERNIGHT, it’s ready.
Small apple with peanut butter & snack-size Lara bar – This is a go-to mid-morning snack that I always fall back on. I mean who doesn’t love peanut butter and apple slices?? I added in a Lara snack size peanut butter cookie bar and that was delish too.
Little cheddar and chicken sandwich, Ritz Thins, Grapes – Since the grocery stores are a little flaky these days, I ended up with a few random picks in my cart. Included were these little “lunchable” type sandwiches. I got the cheddar/chicken and pepperoni/jack cheese combos. And surprisingly, these hit the spot! I just wanted to try some variety to my lunches and this did the trick. I added some Ritz thin crackers (the salt & vinegar flavor) and grapes.
Beachbody Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar – I know Beachbody can get a bad rep, but the workouts and products are pretty darn good. These bars are fairly new to the brand so I wanted to try them out. What peaked my interest with these bars is that they are low in calories and high in protein which can be rare when trying to find a good protein/granola bar. This was great and I highly recommend!
Chicken cutlet topped with mozzarella cheese/roasted red peppers with cold pasta salad – I had these Perdue chicken cutlets in the fridge so I decided to have that with the cold pasta salad I made earlier this week. Yummy!
Not pictured is the little dessert I had – Breyers Carb Smart Peanut Butter Ice Cream 🙂
PS. I’m just now realizing how much I love peanut butter, lol.
