Today was an uneventful, regular old day. I ate all of my meals at home while working. Cabin fever is a real risk. The only difference to the usual was that for the FIRST time since last year, I was able to go for a walk with OUT my coat 😊. I really cannot wait for the nice spring weather to really start. This has been a very long winter.

Okay let’s get right to it.

What I Ate Wednesday: Breakfast

Yum! Waffles! I absolutely love waffles.

(Check out these amazing Banana Chocolate Chip ones!)

The handsome and ever so sweet Andrew made these waffles on the weekend and slaved away to make extras for breakfast meal prep (yes, I butter him up so that he continues to make me waffles!)

They are not super sweet waffles and are made with cornmeal. They become perfectly crispy when re-heated in the toaster.

I added peanut butter and homemade blueberry sauce on top. For the sauce I combined wild blueberries, a squeeze of lemon, and some chicory fiber syrup.

I often use maple syrup (I mean, I live in Canada where we make like 71% of the world’s pure maple syrup, 91% of which is produced in my province; Quebec).

However, I often use a syrup made with soluble fiber. It helps me get my fiber in and it is a pre-biotic which means it helps keeps the balance of good bacteria in your gut.

Also known as Fructo-Oligosaccharides (FOS) a form of fiber found in Chicory Root plants. It can be added to food or drink with little impact on taste or texture while adding a fantastic source of fiber to your daily diet. 100% natural, it can helps boost your fiber intake, improve satiety and encourage a healthy digestive system. It acts as a prebiotic, stimulating the growth of bacteria in your digestive system which produce a number of nutrients beneficial towards human health. Fiber is important for the health of the digestive system. Research suggests total dietary fiber intake should be 25-30 grams daily. Among adults in the United States the average is about 15 grams daily.

Week Two Lunch

Ohh yesss… pulled pork. One of my all-time favourite foods ever.

I have to brag, I make a good one. A nice rub and homemade barbecue sauce are the keys. Normally I top my pulled pork with a slaw, but this time, since I had my brother over to watch baseball the night before when I made this, and I didn’t want to miss anything, I just went with nice ripe avocado, red onion, and lettuce. 

I ate mine open face on a challa roll! 

On the side, I ate some baby carrots with this insanely delicious maple tahini dressing I made for a meal prep last week. Check out last week’s What I Ate Wednesday for that! (or this Instagram post!)

Week Two: Snack

My snack was a yummy key lime flavoured Greek yogurt. These yogurts are creamy and delicious, although slightly sweet for my taste. A quick and easy source of protein!

I ate this before my workout which was a glute/hamstrings focused circuit.

Supper was quick and easy ground beef tacos! I absolutely love tacos!

I had two pounds of lean ground beef thawed and I was late getting dinner ready so I decided to make it easy on myself since I had all the fixins for tacos on hand, including my favourite corn tortillas, I decided to go ahead and make this classic meal I grew up on!

Instead of the old packets of taco seasoning, I always just season right in the pan with some chili powder, cumin, cayenne, oregeno, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. It’s very tasty and much more healthy (and frugal!) to make your own seasonings.

Here is a list of seasonings that are quick and easy to make yourself:

What I Ate Wednesday: Week Two Notes

Selfie for what I ate wednesday

Today was a great day overall! I got a lot done. I worked most of the day and also got quite a bit of cleaning and organizing done including putting away a mountain of neglected clean laundry.

I did my workout circuit in lieu of a long lifting session because that’s how my body felt. My hunger was absolutely non-existent and I feel like I definitely ate enough today.

Until next time!

Week One

Week Three

Week Four

 

PS:

My What I Ate Wednesday series will hopefully inspire and inform you as to what a typical day’s worth of meals are like for me, a personal trainer, blogger, and mama. I am currently lifting weights 5 days a week, depending on how long/full my workouts were the day before. I don’t walk as much as I should or hope to right now but that’s changing with the season.

All of this food looks so yummy!!! I have been slowly been adding more protein to my diet so I will have to see about these recipes! Those waffles look amazing.

Your tacos look amazing, especially with that yummy avocado! I’m trying to eat more greek yogurt because I’m working on upping my protein intake, but I’m just not a big yogurt fan. Maybe I need to try more fun flavors.

I love seeing fitness and food related posts because I’m always so curious. Your waffles look and sound sooo delicious and your workout is awesome! I absolutely love using booty bands and sliders. 🙂

I wish I had the finances to make meals like these more often. It seems my husband and I get in a really unhealthy routine of chicken wings, ramen, and the occasional salad. I definitely need to work on that!

What an inspiring menu! I have made waffles for years and had no idea that you could use cornmeal. Thanks for the tip!
