Another Wednesday, another day of Tuesday’s eats with Jenn!
Not only did I do well with veggies, I packed in the fruit too!
Breakfast: Microwave apple peanut butter crisp (recipe still to come!):
Homemade quiche with broccoli (a small slice since it wasn’t healthified) supplemented with two egg whites (microwaved, too).
Plus a big strong cup of coffee with sugar-free vanilla & skim milk.
Lunch, at work, 12:15:
I typically only have salad for lunch once or twice a week, but it seems to fall on WIAW recap days – making it look like I’m such a great RD.
I like to include fruit on salads (whether berries, apple, etc) but I didn’t have any of my usual toppings. This random kiwi from the fridge made for a tasty topping!
Spinach, green leaf lettuce, yellow bell pepper, tomato, goat cheese and kiwi.
Husband quote of the day: “It looks like you have slugs on your salad.” Note to self: no more melon-baller for kiwi.
On the side for protein: a slice of sweet potato lentil loaf, adapted from Laura’s recipe.
Unpictured snacks while prepping dinner: strawberries & grapes (cutting added sugar really increases my natural sugar intake)
Dinner, 6:30 pm: Noodle free eggplant tofu ricotta lasagna
I posted the recipe last night here.
Another serving of fruit, right?
Dessert was a microwave protein muffin – ugly but satisfying – and included banana!
Total veggies for the day: 7 different kinds! Fruit count: 4 (not including the wine)!
What were you fruit and veggie totals? Did you at least reach 5?
