What I Ate Wednesday #2


Breakfast:

The only thing that sounded good this morning at 6am was a big yogurt bowl.

The Mix:

greek yogurt

clustery granola

strawberries

blueberries

sunflower butter (duh)

I haven’t been adding agave lately because I am starting to like the tartness of greek yogurt. My taste buds are getting used to less sweetener!

 

Lunch:

Today the summer camp I work for went on a field trip right next to a Mexican restaurant, so we ran over there on our break. I got a small cheese quesadilla, which I didn’t have time to snap a photo of. I haven’t had a quesadilla in forever…reminds me why I love cheese so much!!

Snack:

Once I got home from work I ate a quick smoothie in a bowl before my meeting and it was greeeeeeeeeeen!!!

The Mix:

spinach

almond milk

strawberries

1/2 frozen banana

frozen pineapple

vanilla extract

Topped with:

granola

sunflower butter

I honestly never thought I would get into the “smoothie in a bowl” trend, but I’m obsessed! They really do fill me up, especially with oats in them (check back tomorrow a.m. for a new smoothie recipe)

Dinner:

After my meeting, I came home to eggplant parm. I didn’t make it, but I’m pretty sure there was eggplant, marinara sauce, mushrooms, onions, a little ground beef and……..cheese!! I normally am not a fan of mushrooms or onions, but I’ll eat anything covered in cheese!

Sorry this post was so short & to the point but I’m exhausted from work and I get to wake up at 5:30 am to sign up for classes, even though I don’t work until 9:30! It’s going to be a long day…but check back tomorrow morning for a new smoothie recipe! Mmmmmmmm

Have a great night!

Good Night San Diego

I’m having a blast on this roadtrip! I can’t wait to post all the pictures when it’s finished!! Today we were in San Diego…it was a busy day! I’m also taking a ton of pictures for my Weekly Challenge #3! I haven’t had internet access until today, so all my posts have been through my phone. Not so great. Now my posts can be a little more normal!

Breakfast:

Today we went to the continental breakfast at our hotel to grab some breakfast. It was in a tiny room that looked like a ski lodge. Pretty random in San Diego, right? There were Cheerios, Raisin Bran, Oatmeal, Make Your Own Waffles (pretty cool!), and fruit. I ended up grabbing an apple and orange on the way out to have later. The food choice wasn’t that great but it was free so I’m not complaining.

There was a free Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal packet with a cup of coffee.

It was not filling at all so I ended up eating my apple when we got to the hotel. I guess all those toppings I put on my oatmeal at home really do help fill me up. I really missed the peanut butter on my oatmeal!!

Lunch:

After traveling aroung San Diego State University’s campus, we found a small Mexican restaurant. The campus is huge so after a ton of walking, we were starving!


I had a veggie burrito with guac, potato, lettuce, beans, cheese and tomatoes. Wasn’t really a veggie burrito but it was pretty good! Later we went to the beach. Of course we decided to go when it was overcast but it was still awesome to see one of the best beaches in San Diego!

Dinner: 

We found a great restaurant called Studio Diner for dinner. It was a 1950’s themed diner that had fantastic food. I ordered the burger with pepperjack cheese, guac & salsa (I think it’s called the San Diegan burger?) and it was soooo good. This was actually the very first time I have ordered a burger in a restaurant!

Of course we saw someone else drinking a milkshake, so we had to get one too! I ordered a coffee milkshake. Ohmygod. Sooo good.

This restaurant was awesome! I can’t wait to share the rest of the pictures from my trip. There are so many!!
