Happy hump day! That’s right it’s WEDNESDAY. Which means it’s totally time for What I Ate Wednesday. (and no, it’s not Friday yet)
Today’s eats are from Monday. I’ve been fighting a cold coming on for the past few days and have been trying to get rest (unsuccessfully), take it easy (semi-successfully) and up my Vitamin C. So on this day I had TWO oranges! Well, one orange and one tangelo. Stay tuned…
Breakfast started with some egg white oats. I’ve been adding some brewer’s yeast and flaxseed to mine lately to help with my milk supply. Not sure if it’s working, but they tasted good! Oh and of course- said tangelo.
Lunch was part leftover salad from Stone Oven (their Janea salad has tabbouleh, chicken, feta, roasted red pepper, couscous and amazing croutons – I’m hooked!) and part sweet potato that I roasted.Plus some fruit salad (a mini pear and thats right – an orange!) and baby carrots.
I had a late work meeting so around 4 p.m. I decided to have some mixed nuts and a few of these boobie balls. Or energy balls – whatever you want to call them. This batch has mini chocolate chips and M&Ms in them – perfect for an afternoon sweet fix!
Since I had a client meeting that started at 5:30 p.m., B was on daycare pick AND dinner duty. He made me dinner of runny eggs, beans and spinach – and it hit the spot.
Yes, there’s a baby in the background!
Oh, and I ended the day with some chocolate. B had picked up a box of chocolates from a local chocolatier over the weekend and I couldn’t help but dive in. YUM!
That was it for my What I Ate Wednesday eats! I hope that I start to feel better soon – this vitamin C better do the trick! Since I’m still bf-ing, there’s not much in terms of cold meds that I can take.
Some questions for you:
- Do you have any tricks to fighting or shortening colds?
- Do you have a favorite nut?
One thought on “WIAW: Vitamin C!”
I hope you’re feeling better! I try to take a TON of C – like 6000mg. Chocolates help too. 😉
