Better Late Than Never

I was super busy this afternoon with homework and more job searching, so I never got a chance to post my lunch or dinner! I figured since I’ve only shared one meal today, it would be a good opportunity to participate in my first What I Ate Wednesday!


Even though I shared my breakfast, I’ll start from the beginning anyways.


In honor of National Oatmeal Day…

Oats cooked with vanilla flax milk and topped with plain non-fat Chobani, blueberries, and organic peanut butter.


With coffee of course!



Post workout

My workout this morning was 15 minutes of the rowing machine + 15 minutes on the Stair Master, followed by some light weight lifting.

I kept my post workout snack simple by making a protein shake with 2 scoops of Aria women’s protein powder and 1 cup vanilla flax milk.




When lunchtime came around, I was starving! Cameron wanted pizza, so he heated up a Wegman’s frozen thin crust pizza for us to share.

I ate two slices, along with a side salad.



In the salad…

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Tomato
  • 1/4 avocado
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Good Seasons Italian dressing


And a handful of the white chocolate candy corn m&m’s, even though I don’t like them 😳 . I’m a broke graduate student so when I buy something, I’m going to get full use out of it!




My big lunch (it was over 500 calories!) kept me full for a long time and I didn’t make dinner until around 7:00pm. I wasn’t all that hungry so I made an “everything but the kitchen sink” salad. I don’t usually eat two salads a day, but I wasn’t hungry for a big carby meal.

In the dinner salad…

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Tomato
  • 1/4 avocado
  • Snapea Caesar crisps
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Edamame hummus
  • Quinoa


Along with my salad, I had a small glass of Naked Mango!


And for dessert…

Two mini Reese’s cups 🙂


These are my favorite Halloween candy. I’ll probably go back for more!
