What I Ate Wednesday

I always like checking out the "What I Ate" link-up at Peas & Crayons.  It's fun to see what other folks are snacking on, and it gives me new meal ideas!  Here's a peek at what I ate on Sunday, it's a little different than my weekday food routine.  Plus it is extra high in carbs because I had an 8 mile run scheduled for the next day!

Breakfast: Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal, fruit salad, hot tea

Lunch Salad: baby lettuce, carrots, walnuts, dried cranberries, feta, balsamic dressing

Afternoon Snack: tall soy latte, marshmallow dream bar from Starbucks (also had an apple with a tablespoon of PB when I got home!)
Dinner: Tostitos Multi-Grain chips and Bean Chili (1 can/jar each: black beans, kidney beans, corn, chipotle salsa mixed with spices and about 2 cups of chicken stock - simmer on low for an hour or two! EASY!)
SO. MUCH. WATER. Extra hydration to prep for the long run the next day!
I also had another serving of that delicious baked oatmeal topped with a tablespoon of strawberry jam as "dessert"!
This was about 1850 calories.  This is more than I typically eat in a day - especially when it is a "rest" day and I'm not exercising (like Sunday).  But, I didn't plan out my lunch strategy well and was really hungry midafternoon.  Plus, I was trying to make sure I was well fueled for the next day. 


  1. Baked oatmeal beats regular oatmeal by a ton! I don't think I could ever eat that little calories (only 1850??) in one day. I would be starving! Especially if I were active :P

  2. You are so inspiring...and you always make me hungry when I come over here! Have you ever tried steel oats before?? They are soooo yummy!

  3. I agree with LLE, I was I could curb my appetite that much- I've got an insatiable appetite! :)
