Today starts my blog series What I Eat for a Week! I’m going to try my best to capture each meal and snack that I eat for a week. It’s going to be a challenge as I don’t always take my camera with me, but I’m up for it!
Today I woke up at 8am. I don’t work until 11am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so I get to sleep in a bit. Tuesdays and Thursdays I am up at 6am.
After I woke up I put some coffee on, fed the dogs and got ready for the day. I also packed my lunch and snacks for the day and sat down for some breakfast while watching Regis and Kelly.
Today’s breakfast included:
- Three different kinds of cereal (I’m the cereal mixing queen!)
- 1% milk
- 1 banana
- Coffee with low fat half and half
This bowl of cereal holds me over until lunch time, which is 2pm on my late work days.
For lunch I packed some leftover breaded chicken that Andy had made Monday night. I added some pearl barley that I had in the fridge for some added nutrients and fiber. I plan on topping the chicken with some homemade salsa I made on Sunday.
The salsa was made with:
- 1 green pepper
- 1/2 onion
- 3 tomatoes
- lots of garlic
- salt and pepper
I blended everything in a food processor. I love homemade salsa! It’s a great topper for chicken and of course is great with tortilla chips!
When I pack my lunch I also pack some snacks. I don’t always eat them all, but I like to pack variety so that I can pick and choose during the day.
Today I packed:
- 1 orange
- Greek yogurt
- String cheese + tortilla to make a quesadilla
- Slice of zucchini bread I made on Sunday (recipe from here)
A little play time
Before I went to work, I made sure to spend some quality time with the dogs. Today we played in the back yard in the snow. Lately they’ve been obsessed with their boomerang toy:
Off to work! Catch ya later today!
Do you mix cereals?
