Happy Hump Day Readers and Happy WIAW!
I liked breaking my food up my meal rather than days, really because I try and work on this post a few days before Wednesday and it’s hard to remember which day I ate what sometimes!
Pumpkin 3 Egg Oatmeal- Post 16.5 Miler on Saturday
Pumpkin Overnight Oats
I had bought a couple Quest Bars one day at the Vitamin Shoppe and they were stale- so I decided to heat this one up (I didn’t want to throw them out $$$$) before yoga in the broiler to make it somewhat better- not as amazing as a fresh Quest bar broiled but it did the trick.
Right when I got back to my apartment after my 16 miler I wanted fuel in me immediately to have while stretching so I blended a banana, milk and almond milk.
Sliced Apple and Peanut butter- easiest, healthy, delicious snack!
Salads prepped for this week- Carrots, Black Beans, Raisins, Beets, Tomatoes, Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Spinach.
A big salad while I was at my parents house: lettuce, broccoli, carrots, a tomato, sweet potato, and two eggs with this yummy ginger sesame dressing. Big salad for the win!
Meal prepped for this week: Shredded Chicken that I boiled first, TJs fresh stir fry veggies, mandarin oranges, TJs Sesame Dressing, and Quinoa. I was not creative in the kitchen this week- however it is still a tasty and nutritious meal!
Dinner after my 16 miler with my fam at a local diner by them: A Mediterranean Salad: Lettuce, grilled chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, Artichoke hearts, Feta, grape leaves and a lemon and olive oil dressing. SO delicious! I def need to go back and get this salad again.
Sunday Dinner for the win! My Dad made homemade corn chowder and pumpkin cornbread (the TJs mix) so I decided to make a warm salad to go along with it!
First: Slice 3 parsnips- spray them with oil, sprinkle cinnamon, salt and pepper then roast them in the oven at 400 for about 40 minutes.
Then mix kale, cinnamon, salt and pepper, lay on baking sheet then roast for about 20 minutes at 375. For the last 5 minutes add in some raisins.
Cut up pre-grilled warmed up TJs chicken.
Mix all together and….
Such a delicious, Fall dinner!
Strawberry Arctic Zero, Half of a Caramel Machiatto Balance Protein Bar, Almond Butter, a chocolate covered banana, and strawberries.
My honest opinion about the Balance bars that I won: Eh. They taste kinda processed and I don’t love the ingredients list or the sugar content. Anddd I think they gave me tummy problems if you know what I mean. Sooo I need to find someone who wants to take them off my hands. Quest Bars and Smart Detour Bars are where it’s at in the protein bar world for me.
Orange Arctic Zero, Cookies & Cream Arctic Zero, the other half of the Balance Bar (I didn’t equate my tummy problems until after this), Almond Butter, a chocolate covered banana, and strawberries.
Also after my 16 miler my momma and I went for Fro-yo at Cups! I hadn’t been in SO long:
Pumpkin and Cake Batter Flavored, Fruit, Granola, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (literally I could never give up Reese’s in my life) and some drizzled peanut butter. SO GOOD.
Grapes and two TJs chocolate covered bananas with coconut peanut butter!
Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating!
Best thing you ate this week? That Mediterranean Salad and the Fro-yo and my pumpkin eggy oatmeal (I see a trend that all food after a long run is the BEST!)
