So, I basically spent this entire morning convinced that today was Tuesday, and wondered why it felt like Wednesday. Good one, Rachel – Happy Wednesday to you!
I know the theme for this month’s What I Ate Wednesday posts is sensible summer snacking – but I’ve been running around doing various things, and been quite thrown off (woohoo jet lag) the past few days, so I can’t say my snacks have been the best. Oh yeah, and I also didn’t get pictures of most of them, so I’m doing what I can. First, some of yesterday’s eats:
Pre-workout banana and coffee with soy milk. Boring and repetitive, but it works – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
Sweet and savory egg sandwich! With sautéed baby kale for extra veg, and a smear of goat cream cheese and apricot fruit spread on a sandwich thin.
quick lunch – leftover chickpea salad, leftover green beans, seaweed salad from Costco! (first time in 5 months)
Sensible snack: two small handfuls of this soy energy blend trail mix - again from Costco. Crunchy soybeans are delicious.
Dinner by Mom! Yummy roasted red pepper soup served with greek yogurt and herbs de Provence (cold).
And a ridiculous amount of homemade tilapia ceviche. Plus a corn tortilla. I think I prefer raw/cured fish over cooked.
Now, let’s talk snacks. First of all, what you see above is only the eats I managed to snap pictures of. I also had a few other snacks here and there, but I was out and about and didn’t really get a chance to document everything.
So, let’s take a look at some of my favorite sensible snacks (recycled photos):
Fruit, nuts, or cracker/small slice of bread with hummus and cucumber. I love munching fruit and nuts – raw if possible.
Hummus and veggies! Probably my favorite quick veggie-ful snack. I’m also a big fan of carrots/celery with nut butter. Mmm.
Apple (or veggies) and nut butter. Classic.
Plain old fruit! I’m a big fruit-muncher. I know I crave sugar and carbs, and fruit is a great way to satisfy those cravings. Current favorites: berries, melon, apples, bananas.
Lettuce wraps! A great way to use up some leftovers or make a smaller, lighter version of your favorite savory sandwich.
