It’s Wednesday! You know what that means. But fIrst, thanks for the feedback on my last post about some health changes I’ve made. I really can’t believe how good I’m feeling with just a few tweeks. Trial and error can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but it’s all paid off and I couldn’t be happier.
For WIAW today, I’ve again got a collection of eats from the past few days. Maybe one day I will actually do one full day of eats like WIAW is really supposed to be. I’m not very good at following rules am I? ha ha.
I have to give a shout out to Kristin over at Stuft Mamma because I fully admit to becoming a tad bit obsessed with her blog ever since I started reading around a month ago. She never fails to make me crack up and I adore looking at the photos of her way too cute twin boys. Plus, this girl knows how to eat! I have recently made 2 of her recipes that I am in love with! I suggest you treat yourself to them asap. First up was this gem:
Stuft Mamma’s Stuft Baked French Toast. I used banana and cottage cheese to stuff and topped with peanut butter.
Then I tried this…
Stuft Mamma’s Sweet Treat Breakfast Sandwich with grape jelly and ezekial bread.
Kristin, you are my idol! These will be regulars from now on i’m sure.
Ironically enough, today for What I Worked Wednesday…
I tried Kristin’s most recent workout that she posted: Stuft Mamma’s Booty Workout. My heart rate was up like crazy, especially with those froggy jumps. Those may become more of a love-hate relationship seeing as how winded I was after, oh about 10 seconds. I definitely loved this speedy workout though and followed it up with a trail run/walk outside in the gorgeous weather we’ve been having lately. It’s too nice to be inside!
Others eats have included:
another dough bowl with cottage cheese, greek yogurt, oats, blueberries, stevia, cinnamon, and peanut butter
dark chocolate Power Roll. I just added 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder to the regular mix. WIN!
Nutty Protein Cookie Bowl. Loved this, too!
This has been a favorite snack lately: one whole grain wrap stuffed with eggs, cream cheese (or goat cheese or laughing cow) and smoked salmon. I love smoked salmon!!!!
eggplant fries- just put under the oven broiler for about 10 minutes each side. Coated with some olive oil, salt, and garlic powder.
lettuce cups with lean ground beef, avocado, and salsa
greek yogurt mixed with coconut flour and stevia. Gogi berries on top.
Here’s an awesome savory snack: Mix Mrs Dash Fiesta Lime blend with some cottage cheese and dip cracker crips into it. Mmmmm.
My usual dinner plate, aka extra large and extra filled.
This was more of Little B’s Clean Ground Turkey Pizza, roasted brussels, and roasted kabocha squash.
and for dessert…a healthy chocolate cake recipe that I’ve been meaning to post for a while. Check back soon, I’ll have it up!
Thats it’s for me! Today I have a long overdue dentist check-up and then a family cookout for my grandpa’s birthday later today. In between those things will probably be some t.v. show catch-up, blog and Kindle reading, and playing with my favorite pup. I think it’s safe to say I’m liking Summer….just a bit.
Do you prefer sweet or savory snacks?
I’m usually all about the sweet, but I’ve been loving adding in some savory ones to mix, especially if they involve cottage cheese or smoked salmon like in my above pictures. As the weather gets warmer, I usually always crave a lot more smoothies and shakes, but it’s nice to have variety!
