Happy What I Ate Wednesday, foodies and readers!
It’s funny to me how quickly WIAW comes around…but hey, it’s completely fine with me because it might be my favorite day. So, thanks to Jenn for hosting!
So, last night I had the pleasure of running some crazy trails at Red Mountain Park with Alabama Outdoors, and let me tell you. Trails are growing on me. I need more! The only problem with that, is that all the nearest trails are between 20-30 minutes from my house. I did see a tepee at Red Mountain Park…I could possibly move in? Yes? Okay, maybe not such a good idea. Alright, moving on!
Yesterday, if you read my post, I was having a difficult time finding something to eat for breakfast because there were NO bananas! Almost everything I eat for breakfast has a banana in it and I really wanted a banana. So, I ended up just eating like 1/2 cup of coconut chia granola cereal with almond milk and some pecans (with a sad face).
Speaking of pecans, you know you’re supposed to soak them? We’ve been soaking our pecans lately and let me tell you, they taste way better.
For lunch, I had tuna salad (posted the recipe on instagram), organic blue corn chips, and 1/2 Fuji apple that tasted SO GOOD.
From lunch and until 4:30, I was in the kitchen baking! I made my Paleo Coconut Flour Cupcakes but I added more liquid and brown rice flour to the recipe to thin out and create more batter so I could get more cupcakes! Also, I added some chocolate chips and my lemon vanilla icing<—recipe also on my instagram!
By 5:45, I was at the park and ready to run trails. We didn’t get through until 7 and we stayed a while and talked. Then when we got home which was about 8:00 p.m., food was not on my mind. I don’t know about you, but eating a meal at 8:00 at night, is not very fun to me. So, I ate nothing. Boo me. Yeah, whatever. I survived! I’m ready to devour the whole kitchen. Okay, kidding. That would be rude.
But, you know what would have been good last night? A quest bar!
Which leads me to…THE GIVEAWAY!
I’m so happy that Quest Nutrition wanted to team up with me to let me give 2 of my readers a chance to both win a 16 bar sampler pack!
I’ll have the winners on Friday!
Have a great day everyone!
