What (we) Ate Wednesday

What do y’all think of What (we) Ate Wednesdays? Interesting? Or dull?

Be honest… I can handle it. :)

However, today’s it’s still here!  Starting with …

Breakfast

Photo May 17, 6 43 22 AM

1/2 whole wheat bagel with 2 egg whites, broccoli, spinach, onions and 1 Tbsp of Philadelphia 1/3 less fat chive cream cheese- for some flav-ah!  And 1/2 a grapefruit, too.

Pre-yoga Snack

1 handful of raw almonds with my Juice Plus gummies.  I noticed the newspaper article I ordered a back copy of for Hubbs was sitting there and figured it offered a nice background.  He’s going to frame it and put it in the brewery.

I know, I know- you’ve seen this before, but it’s just so darn good!  It’s my beloved Athena Wrap from Laurel Market.

Afternoon Snacks

Yesterday it looked a lot fancier, right?  Well today was the reheated speedy version in a ‘microwavable bowl’.  Still tasted delicious!!

Black Cherry is quickly becoming one of my favorite Chobani flavors.  Topped with some omega-3 goodness, it’s quite the snack combo!!

Dinner

I tell ya- I just can’t get enough Indian food lately!  I made this Chicken Tikka Masala at home using Jen’s recipe.  However, I also added in chick peas, used plain Greek yogurt instead of cream and less oil.

It was yummy!! Next time I’ll add more spice, too, but that’s just me :)

The facts (based on my best estimates) for the masala, 1/2 piece naan and the rice (I know it isn’t the ‘correct’ rice for the dish, but it’s what I had :))

After Dinner Snack

Though I didn’t really get hungry again, I did start craving a little something sweet, so I ripped open the Love Grown Granola- chocolate version.

MMMmmmmm! I snacked on about 1/4 cup- one little piece at a time and it totally quenched my craving.  A bit of salty flavor – with chocolate chips!

Sodium 2804.93

Though the sodium isn’t too much higher than the suggested 2300 a day, I give up (for now) trying to keep it under 1700.  It’s too much for me to focus on when I have so much on my plate.

I’m not retaining water and my blood pressure was 108/72 at the doctor yesterday, so I’m not too concerned.  When summer heat hits, maybe I’ll revisit the goal :)

Speaking of my doctor’s appointment… here’s a sneak peak at tomorrow’s Bumpdate…

    I absolutely LOVE “What We Ate Wednesday” and all the calculations! I’ve never paid attention to sodium until I started reading your blog (I used to drink ketchup, ha – nast) but now I’m more careful and I love seeing the sodium amounts for the different foods you are eating. I vote to KEEP IT! :)

    I like reading What (we) Ate Wednesday posts! Although I’m pretty sure I eat more than you do, it gives me creative and healthy inspiration for my own meals. I say keep it up!

    I enjoy reading what you ate. It gives me ideas :) I feel like both of our tummies have gone into hyper-growth. Do you feel like yours gets bigger everyday? I sure do. Oh, and my 3-hour glucose screening from HADES came back totally normal so no gestational diabetes for this girl! Have a great day :)

    I don’t really have an opinion on WIAW…I do it because I like to connect with other bloggers AND since I don’t actually do what I ate for one whole day, I can sort of look through all my random photos and determine a theme and allow me to show off some randomocity that way…

    What I REALLY want to talk about is that you called you Pyrex measuring cup a microwaveable bowl.

    And I love you for that.

    I absolutely love “What we ate Wednesday’s”, I get so many good ideas for my meals and snacks. Your breakfast makes me jealous, it is so colorful. I hope you have a great Wednesday and can’t wait for the bump update tomorrow.

    Phew! when you asked that question I honestly got super nervous girl! If anyone said dull i’d be pouting for the rest of the day! haha thank goodness everyone seems on board! Happy WIAW girl! I’ll take a plate of chana masala puhhhlease!

  8. says

    that is so cute that you’re calling it “what we ate”. I love it!
    you should keep it for sure! condiments make my world- I am a huge fan of mustard and salsa. I could eat an entire jar, I think.

  9. says

    yum yum this post made me hungry again haha
    I just enjoyed a lovely zucchini pasta salad with dessert coming up here soon, not sure what it is going to be but I am sure I will think of something haha

  10. says

    Love the WWAW – perfect fit for you :) I especially LOVE your take on the masala with the chick peas and greek yo!! I’ve got to make that.

    What a delicious and nutritious day. You sure are feeding that little one well!!!
