It makes me happy.
After a week of boring, #stinkypee eats, lean white protein and asparagus are NOT What I Ate Wednesday.
My post-competition trip to Whole
Paycheck Foods was the stuff of dreams. I had a list and nothing but time.
2 hours later I emerged from Whole Foods almost $200 poorer and without a single piece of meat in my cart. I even skipped the bacon (the line at the meat counter was too long).
Of course I had to fuel up properly before making this epic grocery trip. Toad in the Hole made with P28 High Protein Bread and a local farm egg. Cooked in truffle oil and topped with sriracha. Welcome back, #yolkporn.
I’m so happy to get to post a semi-normal What I Ate Wednesday! I say semi-normal because It has been a busy day and I didn’t get to be quite a funk with my foods… and I went to an election night gathering… so I had a bug ‘ol treat dinner. Woot!
Also different is how my meals are labeled. No “Meal 1, Meal 2,” etc. this week! I ate a proper Breakfast-Lunch-Snack-Dinner. I’ll have another meal plan soon, but these are my days “off” before we start training again. I hate to admit it… but I kind of missed eating more meals!
This was followed by my TVP “Oatmeal” done up apple pie-style. I add apple pie spice and mixed in fresh apple at the end. Topped with a peanut butter drizzle and cinnamon.
I brought my leftover’s from last night’s dinner to work. Roasted brussels, cauliflouwer, and baby bellas. I tossed then in salty fish sauce, red peppe flakes, and coconut oil pre-roasting.
The noodles are kelp noodles. I heated them in hot water to soften and toss in a pad thai-ish sauce. I’m enjoying my freedom from measurement, but here are the ingredients for the sauce:
- Peanut flour
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Grated ginger
- Lime juice
- 1 drop lemon Stevia
Still trying to get my protein in (and because I wanted them), I had a bag of Veggie Pizza Protein Puffs from Kay’s Naturals. I ordered online; click here to find them and get 20% off your order.
Pumpkin hummus, cauliflower, and edamame.
Eating carbs mid afternoon still feels so scandalous!
I spent the evening with my friends Todd and Jeff watching the election results like some people watch football games. If people watch football with Malbec and cookbooks…
Election Day = pizza night! Mellow Mushroom pizza (side note: I worked there in college for a hot minute) with meatballs, red peppers, and feta cheese with a side salad.
Look at this plate and that glass of wine above. Then multiply it by 2. It was a 2x dinner.
A celebration bowl of pumpkin ice cream (real ice cream – full fat and yummy) topped with a crumbled cinnamon muffin and chocolate syrup.
The protein count for the day: KIDDING!!! I have NO idea. Freedom from numbers.
What’s the most you’ve ever spent on groceries?
Did you do any election night partying?
