In my head this week was going to go slow but look, it’s already Wednesday!
Here’s a peak at what I ate yesterday…
This former favorite breakfast of mine of an English muffin with peanut butter has been working really well for me once again so I am continuing to go with it even if it means there is little to no oatmeal in my world right now.
In fact, just the thought of oatmeal most mornings makes my stomach feel like lead.
An English muffin with peanut butter, half before I run with more banana than peanut butter and then half after I run with more peanut butter than banana, just satisfies me throughout the morning so much better than oatmeal these days without weighing me down.
I didn’t even know that oatmeal was making me feel weighed down until I stopped eating it. Before my long run on Saturday I even switched away from oatmeal to the English muffin with peanut butter plus banana and I felt great.
The only time I think I will still eat oatmeal right now will be AFTER my long run. That’s a habit/routine I am not ready to change. Although who knows, maybe I will.
This is what I call a pile of healthy food on a plate. Roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and mashed chick peas and avocado on the bottom. I feel like I have been eating out a lot so I start to naturally crave a plate like this.
I had baby carrots at some point in the afternoon while working. I don’t really like baby carrots but I ate a few anyway before putting the bag back in the fridge because again, I don’t really like them.
My dinner was not as exciting as my son’s dinner. I saw this recipe for one-pan rosemary roasted chicken and potatoes and just had to make it for him!
Look it’s really a one-pan meal!
I wish you could smell it, the aroma in my house was delicious!
While I couldn’t taste the chicken, I had some of the potatoes which were covered in the marinade that was a mix of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and rosemary. The recipe called for chicken thighs which I would think made this dish even more tasty than chicken breasts.
The flavor of this super easy meal is out of this world so I drizzled the same mixture over my own plate of Japanese sweet potatoes and broccoli < – basically same meal as I had for lunch because it’s all I really wanted tonight.
I will definitely be using this marinade combination again for sure.
I am in a major dessert rut when eating at home. Lately I do a lot of unpictured good dessert eating when I am out (chocolate mousse cake Monday night, a molten lava cake Friday night etc.) but when home, I don’t know what I want.
Last night I had raisins. Just raisins. See what I mean? I don’t know what I want to eat.
So I just scrolled up to spellcheck what I have written and I notice no oatmeal or apples in my What I Ate Wednesday post.. Is this really my blog?What I Ate Yesterday! #WIAW #peanutbutter #potatoes #eats #fitfluential Click To Tweet
