WIAW – Real Meals, What?

Sorry, Jenn – I’m really not doing so well with this month’s What I Ate Wednesday theme.  The moving craziness is finally slowing down, but I hadn’t done any real grocery shopping yet (just a few runs to the corner grocery store), so yesterday’s eats were whatever I could get my hands on that was reasonably healthy.

delicious, juicy mango, after my Best Body Bootcamp interval run.

and a protein bar to hold me over until I could get something more substantial to eat.

Because I was so good for most of the summer, I decided to stop at Whole Foods to pick up some food (and coffee! but you know what that looks like already) for second breakfast and lunch.  second breakfast – eggs and salsa, summer squash.

lunch!  holy box of yum.  I don’t even remember all that I put in there.

PS – not that anyone cares, but the majority of my lunch photos are instagrammed, because it’s easier to be sneaky with my phone camera than my real camera.

since it was my last day of the internship, my co-workers took me out for froyo!  We went to 16 handles, hands down one of the best places in the city.  They had salted caramel flavor – and I don’t usually do flavors (I like my Eurotart), but this one was really good!  Half eurotart, half salted caramel with berries, chocolate things, and peanut butter on top.

I will always love froyo.

I wasn’t really hungry after that froyo trip and big lunch, and after some cleaning and organizing, I needed something to munch on.  Enter: snow peas!

(after a Trader Joe’s trip, of course)

Then this happened. Ate the whole bag. Oops (but not really).

I needed something with more nutrients, so I grabbed a veggie burger from the box I bought the other day.  These are probably the best packaged veggie burgers out there.  They’re super clean (no weird ingredients), have a decent amount of protein, and full of flavor! I love that they’re quinoa based, too.

Although not very pretty.  With salsa, because it’s delicious. (Salsa > Ketchup)

dessert – spoonful of this new-to-me nut butter!  since I’m trying to stay on a tighter budget, I only buy maximum two nut butter jars at a time.  My almond butter is on its last leg and I’ve been eyeing this guy for a while, so I went for it.  So. good.  Let’s hope I can make it last longer than a week.

I think it’s safe to say my eating was all over the place today, as the only real meal was lunch – but that doesn’t matter, because I listened to my body.  In the past, I probably would have come home and made a big dinner just because “I have to eat dinner”.  But no, I took the time to assess my hunger, and was very proud of myself that I did not overeat.  I owe this in part to tracking my food, as it’s really helped me think about whether I actually need to eat, or if I just feel like I should eat.  I’m close to healthy balance than I ever have been, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Do you eat full, real meals?

Any awesome new healthy products you’ve found lately?
