Happy Wednesday! Know what I love about blogging? (among many things). I can pretend that it’s another day. Like now. I’m pretending it’s Wednesday and there are only 2 more days left before the weekend, wooohoo!! But I’m really writing this on Tuesday (sshhh, don’t tell anyone). I’m over Tuesday, it was a good day but I’m ready for Wednesday. So let’s make it “Wednesday,” better yet “WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY!”
For breakfast I made an egg white scramble with zucchini, salsa & guacamole alongside my normal green smoothie. I’ve found that the green smoothie does it for me on days I don’t workout but when I have boot camp in the morning and burn over 500 calories, the smoothie just doesn’t do it so I have to eat something else in addition to it. Is that a big enough “side” for you? Hey, it’s all good stuff!
For a snack I had a few chocolate covered almonds because I was stupid and I bought them. And when I buy them I eat them. So I ate them. A lot of them. The sooner I eat them the sooner I don’t have them to eat. Right? Isn’t that how it works?
For lunch I had some leftovers, I’ll be posting the recipe for this soon. It was basically a deconstructed eggplant parmesan stew that I made in the slow cooker. It had all the goodness & flavor of eggplant parm but without all the pasta & “frying” but there’s much more to talk about on that so we’ll come back to that when it’s time.
For my snack I had some carrot sticks which I dipped in guacamole & almond butter. I saw Tom dipping carrots in almond butter the other day and looked at him like a crazy man but then he gave me one and I retracted my crazy eyes. It’s good! It’s a really great vessel to get almond butter in your mouth.
For dinner we had roasted carrots, mashed spicy basil cauliflower & St.Louis ribs with blueberry BBQ sauce. I cooked the ribs all day long and they were SO GOOD! Tom said we should make it Rib Tuesday from now on.
Thanks again Jenn for hosting! Head on over to Peas & Crayons to find more yummy days.
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
They have to be one of the happiest flowers out there. They remind me of spring – oh how I would love me some spring right about now! Tom brought these home this weekend and an instant smile came to my face.
