It’s Wednesday, and that means I finally documented a full day of yummy eats on my tiny point and shoot camera. 😉 Today was the mark of my 4th week of triathlon training, and although my appetite has been a bit wonky the past few days, it’s seem to be about back to normal. Jenn is hosting today so head over there to visit the other posts of yumminess.
Something that amazes me is the awesome variety of food God gave us. Fruits like blueberries, apricots, peaches, pears, strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries, and blackberries are just a few of the fruits that we have access to at the American grocery store. We can craft a salad out of lettuce, spinach, carrots, peppers, celery, green onions, avocados, purple onions, or even… PICKLES. 🙂
My breakfast was at 8:30 AM, and it consisted of my favorite/staple meal:
Enter the Yogurt Mess!
Plain Yogurt, 1 Tbsp. PB, Raisins, Brazil Nuts, and Frosted Mini wheats. 🙂
Lunch. I actually really like salads more at lunch than at dinner time, so I put together a big one at around 12:00 pm along with some egg salad and these seedy crackers that we got for FREE! They’re really good.
We’ve recently just started buying more berries and adding berries to the top of your salad adds a sweet touch. This salad had lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, parmesan cheese, egg salad, blueberries, and a tomato basil vinaigrette.
Lunch Dessert: Ok, I know this isn’t a dessert. But it was pretty delicious. Crisp apples + peanut butter are a snack that never fails to satisfy. And I think it’s stupendous that God’s designed so many different varieties to taste and enjoy.
I did have a mid-afternoon snack of a gluten free brownie, leftover from the ones I made for my dad, and moose track ice cream. 🙂 You will have to trust me that I ate it, because I didn’t take a picture.
That snack fueled me for my triathlon workout of the afternoon which was … about 7 miles of biking interspersed with short 500 meter runs. It was hard. I don’t know how I’ll ever be ready for an Olympic triathlon. Well, I’ll crawl to the end if that’s what it comes to because we know that I could use more humility. 😉
Dinner: This is what we call leftovers ‘refreshed.’ We had some leftover enchiladas from yesterday, so I sprinkled a new layer of cheese on it, and ‘Voila,’ it was dinner. It was pretty good too. Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines. It’s so simple and incredibly flavorful.
This is my plate. Hummus, sour cream, crackers, and enchiladas with bread and butter jalapenos. I know it sounds weird, but they actually taste really good.
And to finish out the day, I ate some more yogurt and cereal and more peanut butter! It would be sad to be allergic to peanut butter.
