In spirit of WIAW, I’m admitting I had these two items yesterday:
Cake, at lunch time – really delicious. Congrats to my friend & co-worker for winning the “Superstar award” – for being an amazingly hard worker who did a great job leading our team!
And Chinese take out for dinner, as we were trying to get some primer / painting done in the living room / dining room / entry area.
Both of those foods, while delicious, did not leave me feeling too great last night. So to go along with Jenn’s “Staples” theme, here are some healthy food staples I could have had instead – and to get me back on track!
Smoothies. Current favorite has cherries and cottage cheese. Seriously, do it.
Breakfast OR lunch – or even dinner:
Egg sandwich! I like mine with cheddar cheese and tomato, but avocado & nutritional yeast make a great combo, or swiss & jam. Sweet and savory for the win.
Salads, of course! This one was “grab & go” style from the cafeteria at work – spinach, avocado, scallions, tomatoes & mandarin oranges. I don’t like the prepackaged dressings they sell, so I sprinkled mine with some pure balsamic vinegar.
Salad bar salad with multiple sources of protein: mixed greens, spinach, black beans, chickpeas, eggs, carrots, banana peppers, sunflower seeds, parmesan, and balsamic.
Staple “healthier” desserts:
Fro yo, of course – watch the sugar! I get enough in the toppings.
Chobani’s new Vanilla Chocolate Chunk – gotta watch the portion on this as the calories are kind of high, but it’s like protein enriched chocolate chip ice cream – so good!
What do you want to eat after a day of overdoing it?
