This is my first What I ate Wednesday post, and I'm kind of excited about sharing my not so glam meals on a typical day. Keep in mind I am not the best eater.. I listen to my body and stop eating when in full, something I didn't know how to do before. 

A little background on my eating habits: 
  • I used to be big on sugar drinks, especially sodas.. I cut soda out of my diet and will only have on a rare occasion (at a party, and sometimes not even then). 
  • I drink as many cups of water as I can throughout the day. 
  • I love bread, and it's something I can't cut out completely but most of the time I limit as a treat on the weekends. 
  • I used to eat late, I cut that out as well, and eat smaller meals, with snacks in between. 

Because of the job that I have my eating schedule varies depending on the babies.. So, lately my weekday meals have been looking like this: 

I always have a medium hot regular from Dunks on my way to work..! Always! 

 I have a tall glass of water before I have my oatmeal and another one when I'm done. I usually have a whole banana on top of my Quaker Maple instant oatmeal and today I added cinnamon to make it look prettier, but usually I don't add the cinnamon. 

Mid morning I will have a fruit snack: Today, a green apple, and a tall glass of water. 

For lunch I usually have leftovers, from the night before but today I didn't have any and I was in a rush this morning so I made a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread, with a glass of water. 

Mid afternoon I will have a snack: Today a Trader Joe's Peanut butter Granola bar..! These are to die for! I also have another tall glass of water. 

I will usually have another fruit snack around 4pm, right before I leave work, today: a green mango and another tall glass of water. 

For dinner, today I made white rice and chicken with a veggie sauce. It was delicious, and I had it with you guessed it, a tall glass of water! 

Before bed after a meal like this I'll only have water, if I had another small meal I would normally have a small fruit and more water. 

This is what my typical weekday meals look like.. Of course they vary throughout depending on leftover meals and what I have at home to bring to work with me.. The weekends are a different story. Maybe I'll post a what I ate Sunday-Maybe not.

  1. Your dinner looks amazing! I usually prefer to snack throughout the day and then have a more full dinner!

  2. I could live on fizzy drinks, I had to cut them out cause I could literally drink them all day! Now I just have them as a treat. The banana with cinnamon looks so good, yummy :)
