What I Ate Wednesday

I joined the What I Ate Wednesday link party to share what I eat on an average day.

Happy Wednesday folks! I’m in an especially chipper mood today since I had a two hour delay this morning due to ice. I wish it was snow, but I’ll take an extra 2 hours for sleep for whatever reason. Anyhow, as I talked about last week, today is the day I join the What I Ate Wednesday link party over at Peas and Crayons. I have a weird obsession with reading posts about what people eat, so I decided to join in the fun too. Maybe some of you are as weird as I am and will get a kick out of this post.

Yesterday started the same as any normal work day. Jesse wakes up, showers, wakes me up, I shower and get dressed, then I eat breakfast and leave for work. Since the Whole Life Challenge doesn’t start until Saturday I’m enjoying my last week to have cereal for breakfast. My go-to is the Simple Truth Organic Honey Nut Cheerios with raisins and unsweetened almond milk. IMG_2113My morning at work was pretty busy, so I forgot to snap a picture of the apple that I had around 11am. I did however remember to get one of my morning coffee and water bottle. I try to drink at least 60 oz. of water every day, so that’s about 4 of these cups full. At least it’s a cute bottle.IMG_2114For lunch I had leftover Chipotle from Monday. I love Chipotle, in case you already didn’t know that, and I love even more that I don’t have to give up my Chipotle habits for the Whole Life Challenge. I skip cheese and sour cream and it’s totally approved. My go-to is a burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, chicken, mild salsa, corn, guacamole and lettuce. Yum! IMG_1781The problem with having leftover Chipotle is that I always eat more than half the first day, so there’s never enough for day number 2! I was still a little hungry, so I ran across the street to grab a quick snack pack. It had celery, carrots and cheese, plus some ranch dressing, but I didn’t bother opening it. I hate light dressings. Bleck! IMG_2117My office is kind of a death trap for sweets and treats, so I had a few buckeyes as an afternoon pick me up too. One of my coworkers is from Ohio so she had a ton of these homemade treats for the office to enjoy to celebrate their win on Monday night. And boy were they delicious! IMG_2116

Jesse had plans to go out right after dinner, so when I got home he had dinner ready to go. He made his spin on French ragu and it was absolutely delicious! It’s got sausage, beans, broccoli and kale all in a white wine sauce. IMG_2119After dinner, I spent my evening cleaning the house. I always get so much more work done when Jesse isn’t home. He distracts me with his good looks and fun personality. 😉 I had a little dessert after I was done cleaning, but it was a very boring dessert in the form of another bowl of cereal. I didn’t take a picture because it looked almost exactly the same as the bowl of cereal I had for breakfast. Go figure. 😉

Next week I will have started my second Whole Life Challenge, so if any of you are participating (you can sign up here) or doing a Whole 30 we will be meal comrades! That will definitely impact how these What I Ate Wednesday posts look.

  1. Minus the chicken-that’s exactly what I get from chipotle! Sometimes Alex and I will just split a bowl because they’re so huge (and SO delicious) but the leftovers are pretty awesome, too.

    Let’s get together soon!
