Hey friends! I have an incredibly busy day ahead but I wanted to pop in and share an easy yet delicious recipe plus WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday). I am intrigued to read what other people eat on a day-to-day basis whether it’s a celebrity, a dietician or just another blog I read. So here’s how yesterday’s food looked:
6am – Coffee (with almond milk creamer) & Jesus. After my alarm goes off and I fully wake up (face washed, teeth brushed, contacts in), I head straight to the kitchen and start the coffee pot and take my vitamins. I spend about 15-20 minutes doing my bible study questions for the day (still in John!). I used to scroll through Instagram first thing in the morning but I’ve learned that’s not the best way for me to start the day.
6:30am – Time to break the fast and watch the news. Greek yogurt + KIND Granola + Peanut Butter was the bowl of the day (and a typical breakfast two to three times a week).
6:45am – More coffee and creamer. I add a scoop of collagen to this cup. You can read all about the benefits of collagen here. I did quite a bit of research before biting the bullet.
10am – I am currently fighting off germs. I have a fever blister and I had the feelings of a cold coming on. If you follow me on SnapChat, you know that I put together a “cold chaser” shot:
1/4 tsp. oregano oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. honey
Pinch of Himalayan salt
It was absolutely horrific and I pray that it works. Immediately after this shot, I reached for an orange for extra vitamin C and to get the awful taste out of my mouth.
12pm – I found myself with some extra time yesterday so I spent a little time in the kitchen preparing lunch. I typically reach for a smoothie or leftovers for lunch but I’m glad I pulled out the knife and put some effort into lunch. I prepared a Spicy Veggie Hash
and it was deeeelicous. Plus I have leftovers for the rest of the week. You do have to dirty up two pans – but it’s worth it. This recipe is incredibly filling and I loved the combination of the sweet potatoes with cinnamon and cumin.
Changes I made to the recipe: I left out the tomato; I used a different cheese that I had on hand.
3pm – As usual, an afternoon snack! I paired one of the muffins
I made late last week with 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter.
6:45pm – Following a walk with a friend, I threw together a salad that consisted of mixed greens, strawberries, avocado slices and avocado. This combo is one of my absolute favorites and it totally made me crave spring.
7:10pm – Tea time. I wanted something to sip on and reached for a warm cup of tea while I watched E! News.
In addition to the above, I also enjoyed two lime flavored carbonated water (similar to La Croix but an off brand) as well as lots of water.
Oh and a pickle around 4:30pm.
