Hellloooo What I Ate Wednesdayers, how’s things?? Anyone constantly thinking about Friday at 5:00PM or is it just me? Rahh.. anyway, let’s get into What I Ate Wednesday, thanks again, Jenn! You are a superstar!
Breakfast was fantastic; my Strawberry Shortcake in a Bowl, only this time I added a sprinkle of Chia Seeds. I devoured this at 9:30AM.
Around 12:30, I wasn’t ready for lunch, but I was ready for a snack!
Snack was a mini Cascadian Farm peanut butter bar. This held me over until around 2:00, when I needed some ‘real’ food:
Leftover Crock-Pot recipe 🙂
Obviously I can’t control my sweet tooth so I followed lunch with 1 tbsp of honey mixed with 2 tbsp of mini chocolate chips:
Last week I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. Of course they took blood which always skeeves me out but that’s besides the point. My blood results came in today and it turns out that I am Vitamin D and iron deficient. I am totally bummed about both of these because it basically all relates to protein. I like to think that I have a healthy serving of protein.. whether it be from chicken, greek yogurt, nuts, or fish. Turns out I’m just not having enough. The doctor told me to get Vitamin D and Iron Pills so off I went to Duane Reade to purchase the goods.
I also decided that my huge lack of red meat-eating probably lead to this deficiency as well. For taste-bud reasons only do I choose not to eat red meat. It just ain’t my thang. However, I have come to the realization that it would probably be in my best interest to incorporate this food group into my diet just a bit more. So after vitamin shopping, I did a little red meat shopping. I purchased four lean red meat patties (I guess that’s what you call a hamburger??) and decided to throw one over a salad for dinner:
In the salad mix:
-1 lean hamburger (150 cal)
-yellow baby tomatoes
-1/2 whole wheat wrap
-1/4 cup eggplant campanada
-Trader Joes Goat Cheese infused with Honey (salivation nation… I’m lame)
-a spoonful of Hummus
-Trader Joes Orange Champagne Vinaigrette
I’m just really not a red meat person. I found myself eating everything BUT the burger. But, down the hatch it went, because I know that my body is desperately craving some iron. Gotta suck it up sometimes. Have a great night, all 🙂
Question of the Night: Are there certain foods you just don’t like? Which foods?
