Morning, friends! This week is already flying by. I made it a goal to cut back on how much I eat out during the work week, so I’m happy to report that I was mostly successful yesterday.
Unlike some of my co-workers, I can’t go home for lunch, so my choices are eating at my desk or paying to go out somewhere. Boredom and cabin fever have taken over lately, so I’ve gone out way more than I probably should, but I’m reigning it in this week. As usual, thanks to Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
My post-workout breakfast was what I’ll call a super food smoothie: banana, blueberries, spinach, vanilla protein powder, and coconut milk. Looks gross, tastes delicious!
At the office, I was craving something cold to drink so I headed to the campus coffee shop for a skinny iced vanilla latte.
I think the guy made it wrong cause it tasted waaaay too milky and not much like a coffee drink. I drank it anyway since I paid $4 for it….I’m still mad at myself for paying $4 for fancy flavored milk, but it’s fine.
I actually ended up having two things of string cheese because string cheese is delicious.
Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich on multigrain that I packed yesterday morning. I put on some spinach leaves and mustard to go with it.
Served on the side were some Special K chips and a sparkling water.
I’ve been experimenting and trying different flavors of the sparkling ice drinks and I think the crisp apple flavor is my favorite. It sort of reminds me of hard cider, minus the alcohol and extra fizzy. It’s delicious!
For dinner, Riley threw together a big salad bowl with veggies we had on hand: Lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, avocado, onion, and feta cheese. On top of the salad, I put some breaded chicken tenders (from Trader Joe’s freezer section), and some yogurt ranch dressing.
For dessert, I had a square of toffee milk chocolate, courtesy of the nice dad who gave it to me on Monday at work.
Having the piece of chocolate made me realize something- I hardly ever eat dessert. It’s not that I don’t like sweets, because I do. I just don’t crave them the same way I crave other things. That little piece of chocolate was the first dessert I’ve had after dinner in weeks. Savory for the win, I guess!
*Not pictured from yesterday is the glass of wine I had during and after dinner. Though by now I suppose you should just assume that there was wine.
How often do you eat dessert?
