Good morning! It’s time for another round of What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)! July’s theme is all about fitness and how we incorporate it into our daily lives. Right now, I’m focusing on running (despite the heat!) and yoga, with a little strength training thrown in there too. I’ve been dying to try crossfit and I might try it out next month if I think I can afford the steep membership prices – we’ll see! If there are any crossfit fanatics out there, convince me to do it! 🙂
Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW. For those of you who don’t know, Jen over at Peas and Crayons hosts WIAW every week – check out her blog for more information on it.
Breakfast was, (surprise!), overnight oats. I did try change up my flavors a bit by making maple cinnamon overnight oats – old fashioned oats, milk, maple yogurt, a splash of maple syrup, cinnamon, chia seeds and banana. Not the prettiest picture, but it tasted good!
For a mid-morning snack I had a peanut choco granola bar. I’m not a big peanut butter fan and was a bit disappointed when Luke brought these home from the store, but they were surprisingly delicious! Generally when I do like peanut butter, it’s when combined with chocolate. I won’t be having trouble finishing this box!
Lunch was a homemade panini – two slices of spinach, garlic and onion focaccia with roasted red pepper hummus, cheddar cheese and roasted zucchini inside. I paired it with a generous portion of blueberries picked from Luke’s parents’ backyard! Delicious!
Before my Hatha yoga class, I snacked on a juicy peach. Every time I eat a peach these days I remember how much I love them!
Dinner was amazing! I experimented a bit and made a summer pasta with a lemon yogurt sauce, zucchini, and summer squash. Whenever I experiment and don’t follow any recipe, I’m always ecstatic when something so delicious results! I will be adding this to my list of favorite quick recipes and, of course, will be sharing the recipe soon!
For dessert, I had a delicious chocolate chip cookie (I broke the golden rule of food photography and used flash because I was in the dark watching the Bachelorette!). For some reason, I’ve been craving a cookie or a brownie almost every night for the past few days. I used to crave a savory late night snack like goldfish, so I’m not sure where my sudden sweet tooth is coming from. I need to put my apron on and get baking so that I’m at least consuming healthier baked desserts every night!
And that’s what I ate
Wednesday Tuesday! I’ll be back tomorrow with my favorite new fish recipe!
