WIAW: Surprise Morning Snack
See what other people are eating at the WIAW Party! Onto my eats…
Before work blueberries! I always seem to wake up a bit hungry. I need a little something to tide me over until I get into work and eat breakfast, and these little guys did the trick!
Decaf Coffee baby! I’ve got to admit, the Starbucks Decaf Verona is pretty darn tasty.
Fage 2% and zoatmeal (1/2 cup oats, 1/3 cup grated zucchini, 1 cup almond milk= microwaved for 5 min on 50% power) for the break of the fast.
Mid-morning snack of hummingbird cake! It was a co-workers birthday and someone brought in a homemade hummingbird cake with banana, pineapple, pecans and cream cheese frosting. MMm Mmmm.Talk about a sugar rush! I didn’t even share this with Todd. Muah haha.
I had a lighter lunch because of the above indulgence. A one egg, 6 egg white frittata(?) with spinach and mushrooms. Oh and bite of left over chicken sausage.
Snacks included green bean fries with ketchup and mustard combo for dipping.
And an hour or so later, cucumbers (with salt) and grape tomatoes.
I was going to have an avocado with the cukes and tomatoes, but it was NASTY! I’ve never had one like this and I was so sad 🙁 I tried to eat the middle, which was OK, but just gave up so I wouldn’t get sick.
For dinner I went with the Cinco de Mayo theme and made quesadillas for Todd and a salsa chicken salad with sauteed green pepper and onions for me. Obviously I stole a few slices of quesadilla, which were pretty good if I don’t say so myself. I even used greek yogurt for the sour cream and Todd didn’t even notice!
Instead of my usual nut butter shot, I just had a handful of nuts, which went unpictured. Oh well. I was too busy chatting with Jessie to mind 🙂
Did you eat anything Cinco de Mayo themed yesterday?
