A Day of Clean Eats

I’m jumping right into What I Ate Wednesday today, so thanks to Jenn for hosting! And let’s get the ball rollin’!

Peas and Crayons

As a foodie and someone who’s gotta run early, breakfast is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. The night before, I washed and chopped up a lot of celery that needed to be juiced so, I quickly grabbed some greens and a couple of carrots to add to the celery. It was delicious!

About 20 minutes later, I grabbed some boiled eggs (prepped the night before) and a handful of Cascadian Farm cereal. I stayed full for hours, it seemed. Eating good proteins, carbs, and having energizing juice in the morning really keeps me going.

After breakfast, I went running 3.25 miles. Warmed up nice and easy the first 2 miles and then 6 crazy hill repeats, then ran till I got home!

Then I completed 3 rounds of that arm workout!

Yep, super sore this morning…

WOD: 2 miles at 9:30/mile pace, 20 minute free motion cross cable workout (target quads, back and arms), 9 min mile, 30 push-ups. Lacking energy, glad it's over.

Lunch was kind of too early for me, so I ended up not eating any of those chickpeas or the avocado. It just looked unappetizing as soon as I sat down to eat.

So I replaced the chickpeas and avocado with a baked quest bar because…who wouldn’t?

And I tried to take a decent picture of my dinner, but it was rainy outside and the lighting just sucked…so yeah, this is what you get stuck with.

Organic Whole Wheat pasta, meat sauce, lots of fresh basil, and baked parmesan artichokes!

Food Ideas from the Past Week (pictures)

Wow, it’s already Memorial Day! I hope all of you are enjoying yourself and relaxing on such a wonderful holiday.

I know I haven’t blogged in over a week…but I’ve been rather busy with school and work that blogging just wasn’t on my mind. But back to it! I wanted to share with you some meals I caught on camera (before I devoured them). My eats are always revolved around quick and easy but still healthy. Maybe these pics can give you some ideas! Let’s get started!

Turkey, Arugula, Muenster Cheese, & Hummus on Organic Bread for lunch at work along with a pear and some organic blue corn chips.

I won some RISE BARS from The Picky Eater blog and OMG, they are definitely delicious. I love the sweet and slightly chewy textures and the protein bars taste excellent even though they’re very different from most protein bars. They aren’t my favorite, but definitely worth it. Simple and clean ingredients. So, it’s also good on the digestive system. No worries with these. Will have to buy some for the future!

Grilled lettuce wedges…is a must try if you haven’t had it yet! Very good with some vinaigrette drizzled on top.

Need I say more?

Seriously, put some Italian sausage to cook with your chicken and the flavor will be so good! That’s some mushrooms, broccoli, asparagus, and chicken and Italian sausage! Yum.


Is anyone watching the Oscars tonight?
