Hey, friends! I’m back with another What I Ate Wednesday! I polled you guys over on my Instagram stories, and you said you’d rather see a What I Ate Wednesday post next instead of a grocery haul. So here we are!
I also filmed a vlog of our day, which you can check out at the end of this post.
Here’s everything I ate last Wednesday:
I had meal prepped some roasted veggies for my Roasted Veggie Breakfast Bowls, but I decided to get creative and put them in an omelette instead. I made a 2-egg omelette, filled it with the veggies, and topped it with some Parmesan cheese. It was delicious!
I’ve been trying to be more intentional with my lunches (instead of just scrounging for leftovers or throwing something together at the last minute). So I started planning my lunches out for the week. I choose 3 different lunches and make each one twice. So far I’m loving it!
Here I had a Kale Avocado Caesar Salad with Sweet Potato Fries (recipe from Pinch of Yum). I added some marinated chicken for added protein.
You guys, I went live on Instagram for the first time ever! It was nerve-wracking, and I’m sure I sounded like an idiot. But it was actually kind of fun! I did a demonstration of how I make my Sugar Free Matcha Latte.
I had my sister over for supper. We had homemade ramen noodles: one of my favorite things ever! I used organic ramen noodles and added homemade and Pacific bone broth, shredded carrots, onions, mushrooms, peas, ginger, green onions, homemade ginger sausage, soft boiled eggs, and seaweed snacks. I also added some ginger carrots to the mix. Yum!
After the kids were in bed, Reuben said, “Why don’t you guys make cookies?”
So my sisters and I whipped up a quick batch of my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies. We cut the sugar nearly in half and used mostly organic ingredients (and Kerrygold butter). And of course I had to have a fresh one with milk. BUT I almost instantly regretted it. I had been successfully fighting off the illness that had been making its rounds, and almost as soon as I finished my cookie, my throat felt scratchy. It definitely had an effect on me. The next few days I didn’t feel so well. That cookie was delicious, but I don’t think it was worth it. I’ll remember that next time I’m trying to stay healthy. Moral of the story: trust your instincts if you feel like you shouldn’t indulge in a sugary treat.
Here’s a little vlog of our day:
That’s it for this edition of What I Ate Wednesday! Next time would you guys rather see another WIAW, or a grocery haul?
