Today I bring you the latest edition of “Everything I Ate Today!” Shall we get started?
*Breakfast* Another oatmeal pancake. This time I added 1 tsp chia seeds to the “batter,” but I forgot a very important ingredient, the baking powder! This made for a very dense, rubbery pancake. It was still edible… barely!
A little while later, I had some Archer Farms S’mores flavored coffee with Splenda. As much as I try to like flavored coffees, I just don’t. And s’mores are like one of my top favorite things.
*Lunch* Leftover falafel patty, tzatziki and roasted broccoli with strawberries on the side. That whole bowl was only THREE steroid induced strawberries!
I was still hungry, so I had the last of a package of turkey pepperoni and a little bit of deli chicken for some protein.
*Snackage* A Luna Protein Bar – Chocolate Cherry Almond. These are pretty good, but not nearly as good as the cookie dough flavor.
*Dinner* Couldn’t get here fast enough. I am especially hungry today. I’ve had this packet of stir-fry seasoning for longer than I’d like to mention, so I finally decided to use it up tonight.
In my stir-fry went:
- 2 large chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 medium green pepper
- 1 small yellow pepper
- 1 (8 oz) package sliced mushrooms
- 1/3 of a large onion, sliced
- 1/2 cup edamame
- the sauce packet which I mixed with soy sauce, sugar, and water per the package
- brown rice
Normally I like a little something red or orange in my stir-fry, but no carrots or red peppers were in my fridge today. I also don’t care for green peppers (But I like red, yellow, and orange though!), so I gave Wayne most of those. The stir-fry had good flavor but there wasn’t much heat, which was surprising since it was called “szechwan”!
Of course I will be having a night time snack, or two, or three. I have issues with eating at night, and instead of fighting it, I try to make sure I have a nice amount of calories left so I can have a few snacks without feeling too bad. I will edit this post later or in the morning to show you what I have. And just because this post is called “Everything I ate,” technically I had my gummy vitamins, a calcium chew, and a taste of hummus that all escaped the camera! Ta ta for now 😉
*Edited to add – Snacks!*
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- 5-6 frozen banana slices
- 1 Tbsp Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp maca powder
- dash of salt, splash of vanilla
100 calorie bag of kettle corn – I eat this almost every night because I get the most bang for my buck calorie-wise!
Half of an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with Sabra Supremely Spicy hummus <— really is HOT!
