I’m not going to lie – I’ve really been enjoying participating in What I Ate Wednesday posts. I love seeing what you are all are eating and love sharing (and remembering) my eats!
Once again, today’s eats are from my Tuesday meals and were a pretty planned out day with all meals as normal – no meals out, no traveling, no unexpected surprises. But hopefully still delicious looking!
As usual, my day started with egg whites and veggies, made by B. I ran out of my 100% egg whites so B added a few Egg Beaters as well.
Oh, I also had some hard boiled egg whites for a snack – 3 of them. I HAVE AN EGG WHITE ADDICTION. Oh, and we ran out so what am I to do the rest of the week?!
Lunch was leftovers again – I love making extra food for lunches! I honestly used to hate leftovers – but now if I can I plan ahead just so I have a delicious lunch ready to go. (Is this what happens when you turn 30?!) Monday night I had made chicken sausage, peppers, onions (all from West Side Market!) over spaghetti squash with homemade sauce. So for lunch today, I had leftover spaghetti squash marinara with peppers, onions and a half a chicken breast that B had roasted.
Snacks during the day included:
Carrots and celery
A Vanilla protein shake – B buys the BioTrust low carb protein and I think it’s pretty good. And filling!
Some pinto beans. Yes, they may be a weird snack but I was hungry when I got home and had made pinto beans last night so that’s what I snacked on.
For dinner, I made a sweet potato zucchini hash with some chicken sausage we had bought at the West Side Market on Saturday. Oh my goodness – I wish you could taste this. It was SO good! It took me forever to chop everything up but it was SO WORTH IT. You’d better believe I have leftovers for today’s lunch!
And here is where my Fitbit ended up for the day – I ran 5.5 miles in the morning, walked to and from work and got in some steps during a short (10 min) walk during the day.
Well, how did I do? Some questions:
- Do you have a quick and easy go-to breakfast during the week?
- What are your favorite at-work snacks?

I too used to despise leftovers. As I’ve gotten older though things have completely changed. I couldn’t imagined wasting food that I spend $$$ on.
Exactly – maybe that’s part of my reasoning as well. Plus, when I know how something is made because I made it, I’m more happy eating it! Even leftover
Spaghetti squash marinara…nom nom nom!
So delicious, right? It’s amazing how simple and yet delicious a little homemade pasta sauce, hot peppers and veggies can be!
I love that you had those veggies and tomatoes for breakfast- I love avocado first thing in the am.
I love veggies in the morning! I had avocado today and it was perfect.
Veggies from the zucchini in my zoatmeal every morning! Fave work snack is either an apple and nuts or a pb&j! And I’m all about left overs, always have been 🙂
