WIAW: Balanced Meals

Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday!

I tried to create more balanced meals this week and so far I think I am doing well. I am also making an effort to incorporate a protein, carb and fat into each meal! This was Monday’s menu.

Breakfast: 8:00:

A toasted Arnold Sandwich Thin with a vegetable egg puff and spinach. (All I did was pour egg beaters and frozen mixed veggies into a bowl and microwaved it for 4 minutes! I washed it down with a Golden French Toast k-cup and some Trop50 orange juice. This puff got much bigger than anticipated! It made this sandwich more like an omelet-burger!

Lunch: 10:45:

        

A pomegranate Chobani with blackberries and a side of boiled carrots. I have said this before but I HATE raw carrots so I have to cook them or they do not make it into my meals.

Snack #1  1:00:

Banana and a low fat cheese stick

Snack #2 4:00: Post workout:

I bought this Clif bar at Trader Joe’s over the weekend on a whim. I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I actually enjoyed it!

It had a lot of fall like spice to it and all I could think of was how good it will be paired with a hot cup of pumpkin coffee.

Dinner: 6:30

A healthy chicken taco!

  • ground chicken
  • sauteed peppers and onions
  • sliced avocado
  • diced tomatoes
  • low fat Mexican shredded cheese
  •  2 tbsp Salsa Autentica

We have tacos and fajitas quite a bit, but I don’t think I will ever learn how to properly fold a tortilla. This baby just would not close on its own.

Midnight Snack: 9:30

An old favorite

Trader Joe’s popcorn with some sweet toppings 🙂

Overall this was a pretty balanced day of eating for me! There were lots of different colors and food groups represented which is always the goal.

 

Question:

What food group do you gravitate to most and why? Which one do you eat the least?

  1. I never tried the Cliff Bars, only the Clif Kid ZBars. Any suggestions on good flavors? All your eats look delicious! 🙂 PS. Fold the ends in first, then roll. 😉
