What I Ate Wednesday Goes Green! [Party #62]

----What WIAW isn't about----
Comparison - Judgement - Restriction - Guilt

----What WIAW is about----
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!

[Tuesday March 27th]
wiaw what i ate wednesday goes green

[breakfast] hashbrown breakfast sandwich w/ jalapeno ranch + a big beautiful cup of black coffee [snack] clementiens  [gym nibbles] two bottles of water + a few handfuls of raisins [lunch] green tea + a peanut butter and jelly sandwich + two cups of cayenne and sea salt edamame [dinner] a loaded spring mix salad with peppers, tomatoes, and a generous helping of cheese [dessert] so delicious butter pecan almond milk ice cream sundae

Looking back at my eats reminds me that I still need to start sneaking some protein packed green monster smoothies into my post-workout routine.  The habit became extinct right around the time that fall kicked in, so it's time to grab spring by the balls flowers and get back to business!  I also want to eat more black, pinto, and garbanzo beans.  It is so much easier to set goals when I have a month's worth of WIAW posts to reflect on!  

--Your Turn!--
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

    This is a great idea! Looks like you had a good, healthy day of eating! I should start doing this - I'd probably eat a lot better than I do now. :)

    Thanks for another great WIAW. :) I know this was the end of the green month, but I still need to work on getting my greens in. I hate when I see what I've eaten for an entire day and realize it wasn't very green!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I look back on some WIAWs too and think the same thing girl! Its great that we have them to reflect on -- helps us make more healthy eating goals and prevent the "bleh" days from being weeks or months. Keep at it! <3 mwah!
