I’m here with another what I ate Wednesday! Today was a day all at home so I had time to make a lot of good meals for both my daughter and myself. I always try to balance what I eat and make sure we both eat lots of veggies and protein. Lately, I’ve wanted to look into different ways to measure and proportion so when I figure out what I’m planning I’ll let you guys know!
Before breakfast, I was so thirsty so I drank some water, not this whole bottle for sure. This is the bottle I use most of the day. I think it’s about 4 cups and I usually drink it about 3-4 times a day.
For what I ate, my daughter and I each had a fluffy waffle, a hard-boiled egg, and some blueberries. She also had a banana with hers while I had a creamy cup of decaf that I forgot to take a photo of because it was gone so fast.
Lunchtime! I usually always think, ‘ ugh I don’t have time to make anything good, anything healthy…’ so I always think I need to resort to junk food or easy stuff. Well, today is a perfect example of how wrong I am. This sandwich took me less than 15 minutes to make and has so many veggies and good stuff on it! This is another one of those Fit Girl recipes that I mentioned last week. This is from their Fit Girl Cook Book and it’s called the “Second-Date Sandwich.” I used whole wheat bread, it said to mash chickpeas with sour cream and steamed broccoli but I don’t like just chickpeas so I used hummus, mushrooms, grated carrot, cucumbers, lettuce, slice cheese, crispy ham, and avocado on the other side piece of toast. This sandwich is so filling and my only complaint would be that it didn’t have enough crunch but the chips I had with it (not pictured- They were Terra mixed chips, the ones with beets and parsnips and such) were a perfect addition.
Dinner was a bit of a mess for me. Usually, I plan out what we’re having while my daughter naps and prep what I can so when she wakes up I have time to spend with her before I have to cook. Today I don’t know what happened but I was a mess… but it seems like it came together. We had brown rice with shrimp that I baked in the oven just with some simple seasoning and stir-fried veggies with a stir fry sauce that’s a combo of a few recipes we use in our house. It gets thick and it’s the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
Stir Fry sauce
- 3 TBSP brown sugar
- 4 TBSP soy sauce
- 2 TBSP Rice wine vinegar
- 1 TBSP sesame oil
- 1/4 tsp Ground ginger
- 2 TBSP flour or cornstarch (I’ve used both)
Combine all the ingredients in a measuring cup and stir till flour combines. Stir fry veggies to your preference and in the last 1-2 minutes still on medium heat add sauce and stir around till it thickens. Be careful though! The sauce thickens quickly!
I also tried something new and made my own miso soup. I know Miso is really great for your digestion so I thought I’d try my hand. It was delicious.
I also had some leftover Easter M&M’s that we had around but it wasn’t more than a handful.
Again all I drink all day is lots and lots of water, I try to get through 3-4 of my big bottles a day and just my one decaf a day in the morning.
That’s all for now guys! Hope you enjoy!
