Happy Wednesday! Thanks for all of your kind words and well wishes with regards to my ugly stomach!! None of them went unnoticed and I am going my best to respond to each of you because you are so sweet!
It has been a while since I have joined Jenn’s Party! I have stayed away from What I Ate Wednesday for a bit because.. I eat a lot of the same old things.. and I figured you were tired of seeing those things Wednesday.. after Wednesday!
Now – I am not saying that I’ve completely revolutionized my meals, but I’ve had a few new things lately (semi new?) and I thought I’d join What I Ate Wednesday again this week!
Breakfast lately has been uneventful and.. well.. boring. I have been enjoying a protein shake after my workouts however…
Yep. Straight up protein. I’ve been using a combination of Sunwarrior Vanilla and Fit Frappe Vanilla Latte.. mixed with water. I used to always have protein shakes after I worked out and then they kind of faded away. I am bringing them back because I am really working to get protein into my diet!
Lunch .. included mangos. Because I love mangos. This love is new, but it is rather deep!
A turkey sandwich with sliced mangos, mustard, and a little but of shredded cheese.. pressed of course on the Forman Grill! On the side, some plain 0% Fage mixed with Espresso Fit Frappe Protein Powder and a glob of Almond Butter!
Dinner included mango as well. I used some more of the mango I had cut up at lunch and turned it into a Mango-Chicken Quesadilla!!
This was an INCREDIBLY easy meal to make! I marinated about 4oz of chicken with some pepper and Caribbean Jerk seasoning.. with a little lemon juice as well.
After letting that marinate for about an hour, I cooked the chicken on the stove and once it was cooked, I added about 1/4 c. diced Mango. (I would have added some onions as well.. but we were out.). After heating the mango, I put it all on a La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Tortilla with some shredded Mexican Cheese. Of course, I heated mine on the Foreman Grill..and then topped it with some Greek Yogurt. SO GOOD!
I drink I have been enjoying lately is Orange Vanilla Seltzer. I saw it for the first time last week.. and it tastes like a Creamsicle. (A very unsweetened one.. but still.. it is yummy nonetheless!)
Snack I’ve been digging lately is the Honey Graham Clif Z Bar. These have been great as an afternoon snack at work.. and hold me over until after my workout!!!
And while this isn’t everything I’ve been eating.. the other stuff would likely bore you!! So we can just skip the pictures!!
Do you drink protein shakes?
What fruit has been creepin’ its way into your diet lately?
