WIAW - A Typical Weekday

Last week I shared a weekend example of  "What I Ate", so this week I'll share a typical weekday.

Breakfast (219 calories): "Green Monster" - current blend is SoDelicious Unsweetened Coconut milk, 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder, 1 tbsp cacao powder, 1 tbsp PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
I eat the same exact thing every single "school day" for breakfast.  I sometimes mix it up with eggs or pancakes on the weekends, but this is my weekday staple!
Lunch (364 calories): one of these salads in a jar
This week's selection is Asian style - miso ginger dressing, edamame, chicken, and mandarin oranges.  I also have a piece of fruit (clementines, a blood orange, an apple, etc.)
Lunches are prepped and packed on Sundays, so I eat the same thing every day for a week.
Afternoon pick me up: green tea and dark chocolate! (84 calories)
Every afternoon when my students are at their special, this is my treat!
Afterschool snack (100 calories): apple with PB2 (mixed with water) and a natural diet soda (sweetened with Stevia - not a usual thing I drink, but I had some in the fridge!)
My usual afternoon snack is a half cup of Greek yogurt sweetened with a few drops of Stevia and 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries.  I mixed it up a little today!
Dinner (480 calories): Baked chicken breast w/ a tbsp of spaghetti sauce and a sprinkle of cheese, baked sweet potato w/ 1 oz. of cranberry cinnamon goat cheese, swiss chard sautteed with olive oil
Dinners are typically a lean protein, lots of veggies, and maybe a grain like quinoa or brown rice.
Dessert (220 calories): 5 Dove Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Promises - SO GOOD...should never have bought these!
Total Calories: 1600
Exercise: 35 minutes jogging on treadmill (5.0-6.0mph), 60 minutes yoga




  1. That's an excellent way to plan for the week! I should take note :)

  2. I love your salad jars for the week. So convenient!

  3. I love salads in a jar. What other kinds do you make?
