What I Ate Wednesday: My First One!

Wooohooo I'm jumping on the "What I ate Wednesday" bandwagon!

Let me explain what "What I Ate Wednesday" is for those of you who read my blog, but aren't a part of the blog world (I'm talking to you, Mom):

Jen, from Peas and Crayons, hosts WIAW each week (Thanks, Jen!).  Basically, it's a big food diary sharing party, where bloggers from all over the blogoshpere post what they eat for an entire day.  If you don't get it, that's ok, just enjoy a day in the life of my tummy.:)  It's fun to share what I eat all day, because most of the time, I only post my dinner recipes.  

Everything I ate for this WIAW is from Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

I usually eat breakfast when I get to work.  I bring in a little baggie of oatmeal and microwave it, then I add a big melty scoop of peanut butter.  It's delicious, and my coworkers always comment on how good it smells.  

8:30 am
3/4 Cup oatmeal
1 tbsp Teddy's Peanut Butter
I didn't end up eating the orange, but I thought it made my breakfast look a little less sad.

9 am: 1 DD medium French Vanilla coffee- regular

Coffee can dramatically improve your morning in ~4 seconds.  Here is proof:
Just look at that pure joy on Tracy's face.

11 am:   I felt my tummy rumbling around 11 so I munched on some trail mix. 

Trail mix: raw almonds, raisins, and sunflower seeds

Around noon Tracy and I walked over to the MIT food court to eat lunch.  We love eating lunch here because it gets us out of the office for a little while.  I made a salad that morning, and filled it with lots of healthy veggies, and some cheese and meat to give it a little more substance.

Green Leaf Lettuce
Napa Cabbage
Tomato (<--- I think I might be starting to like them!)
Green Bell peppers
Shredded Low-Fat Mozzarella
Deli Turkey

Water &1 Clementine


At 2:30, I got hungry for my afternoon snackI brought in a tub of Chobani nonfat plain greek yogurt and added a little cinnamon for some added flavor.  It was satisfying and filling.

2 Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate nuggets with almonds.  
Gotta have my little afternoon delight. :)

I made tofu stir fry, with steamed vegetables and roasted ginger turnips
I had to use our turnips before they went bad, so I chopped them up, tossed them in olive oil, sprinkled them with ginger, and popped them in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 degrees.  I don't usually eat turnips outside of Thanksgiving dinner, so it was nice to try them this time of year. 
After the turnips were roasted, I chopped up some tofu, sauteed it, and then threw it in a pan with rice, veggies, and soy sauce.  It was a delicious and filling dinner.

After dinner I had 1/2 a brownie from Busy Bee Bakery, the best bakery ever!

Happy Wednesday Everybody!  Hope you have a tasty and nutritious day!
