I decided to join in this week and post Tuesday's eats! Thank you to Jenn for hosting the link-up.
So much for qualitarian choices this morning! My sleepy-head brain reached for a box of cereal thinking it was Kashi Simply Maize, but I looked at my bowl and saw this.
Oops! It was an enjoyable start to my morning but not very filling. I grabbed an apple from the teacher's lounge when I got to school to eat and drank my morning coffee (Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla brewed).
The hunger hit early today, so I ate a handful of (unpictured) almonds to satiate my rumbling stomach. Then, I ate my planned morning snack of a few strawberries I picked up at the store this week.
We went to Winn Dixie this week, and their produce is MUCH BETTER than Wal-mart's! These strawberries are still good after two days, whereas my Wal-mart ones last week were barely good the next morning!
This is a typical lunch for me: a spinach salad with tomato, onion, cucumber, and peppers; a Greek yogurt; some sort of fruit/veggie; and an occasional crunchy snack. I loaded up on the fruits/veggies today in an effort to get 7+ servings for a Spring Bootie Buster Challenge point!
I'm always starving after school, so I usually pack a Nature Valley Protein bar to eat before I head to the gym. Yesterday, I was on my way to chiropractor after school while eating my snack.
I didn't snap a picture of the meal before cleaning my plate, but I made this chicken fried rice boxed dinner.
Qualitarian choice of the day: The recipe called for vegetable oil, but I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead! I also steamed some broccoli, topped with some low-sodium soy sauce, to eat on the side. Joe and his friend who came over for dinner/studying thought it tasted great!
Apparently, I can't get enough of these today. It is a good snack because I don't get too full, but it also satisfies my sweet tooth enough so that I only want one bowl.
So there you have it! A typical day in the food-life of Amy.
Question of the day: How many fruit/veggie servings do you usually eat in a day?
