Gooood morning! Hope you’re having a fantastic week so far! Only a couple more days before the long Memorial Day weekend. 🙂
Before I head off to St Louis for an audit this week, here is another What I Ate Wednesday post.
I’m pretty much obsessed with this scrambled egg combination and I’ve been eating it up like crazy lately. Since I’m taking a few days off to recover, I have extra time in the morning to prepare a hot bowl of eggs.
Three eggs scrambled with a splash of milk and dash of salt and pepper, topped with half a diced avocado, lots of crumbled feta cheese, and few shakes of Cholula hot sauce.
When I arrived up at my desk, I had a piping hot cup of coffee from Mickey D’s waiting for me, courtesy of one of my coworkers. 🙂
Mid Morning Snack
I dove straight into work and was able to accomplish a lot without checking the clock every 20 minutes which definitely made the first half of the day go by in a flash! Love days like those.
My bowl of eggs fueled me nicely throughout the morning and my only indication that it was past 10 am were the growls escaping my stomach. I munched on baby carrots and snap peas dipped in roasted red pepper hummus while I continued working away at my desk.
I finally broke for lunch and went downstairs to eat with a few coworkers.
Holy cow. This salad was DE-licious!
Spring mix, cucumbers, tomatoes, green onions, craisins, macadamia nuts, goat cheese, and blackened chicken (leftovers from Monday night’s dinner).
I poured this Lite Sun Dried Tomato dressing into the bottom of the container along with the cucumbers so the rest of the salad remained fresh. When I was ready to eat, I shook everything up so the dressing could evenly distribute. Very tasty!
The other day Jewel was offering two 1 lb containers of strawberries for $4. Although I intended on purchasing blackberries instead, the decision was a no-brainer – a tiny clamshell of blackberries for $3.98 vs 2 lbs of strawberries for basically the same price.
And now I’m stuck eating 2 lbs of strawberries! 😉
I snacked on a bowl of Greek yogurt topped with cut-up strawberries and Reginald’s White Chocolate Macadamia Peanut Butter.
A perfect afternoon pick-me-up!
The positive side to skipping a morning workout is getting out of work a bit earlier. I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening relaxing and enjoying some leisurely cooking in my kitchen.
I snacked on a few Italian Bistro Pretzels from my Nature Box this month and pepperjack cheese slices while I worked in the kitchen.
I finally sat down to a big bowl of pasta. I layered baby spinach on the bottom, which wilted down nicely from the hot fettuccine, along with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, roasted garlic dressing, red pepper flakes, and parmesan cheese.
I had a real craving for marinara sauce which is what inspired me to cook up the pasta, but I failed to realize that I had no sauce in the pantry until the very last second. Instead, I tossed the pasta lightly in roasted garlic dressing and it tasted great!
I cuddled up with blankets and my furry friend to watch TV and munch on a few dark chocolate almonds.
These things are dangerously good!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
