This week has been a rollercoaster.
Is it really only Wednesday?
You guys know I’ve been fired up about this election fiasco. I can’t sit idly by.
I feel like we should still be in the mountains.
Why CAN’T we spend our days skiing?
Alas, we had to come back home. Silly real world.
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:
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?
