What I Ate Wednesday – WIAW #17
|July 17, 2012||Posted by Carrie under food, What I Ate Wednesday|
After 10 days of vacation, most of which involved meals that I didn’t plan, I decided it was time for a little buckling down in terms of paying attention to the food that I’m eating. The mindless snacking and 2nd helpings at dinner are taking their toll on the way my pants are fitting.
A change of pace from my typical What I Ate Wednesday post where I usually just share interesting eats from the week. This week, I actually photographed all my food from yesterday.
not pictured – 3 cups of coffee (w/ skim milk) (and no, not all at once) and two mini plums.
(Aren’t you glad I labelled the apple? In case you didn’t know that’s what it was?)
That Nature Box snack is from my July box. It’s called Tomato Crunchies – basically almond slices with a tomato seasoned coating. That was my morning snack before going to the gym super early with my friend.
The Chobani and Cheerios is my new favorite afternoon snack. It’s really random (as are many things that I find myself eating). But, it’s really filling and 1/2 cup yogurt and 3/4 cup cereal feel like a huge serving for a snack. I’ve been buying the plain fat-free Chobani, but it really doesn’t work well with all cereal flavors. I think I need to load up on the vanilla flavored too.
In case you’re wondering – my food was just about 1700 calories for the day – 22% protein, 32% fat, 46% carbs. I think the only added sugar was in the cereal. Some of the numbers are rounded – I’m working on the not-being-obsessive thing.
I know that the WIAW theme for July is food and fitness. So, let me just tie this all together by saying that my almond snack was actually perfect before my morning workout today
On a final note – please take a moment to read my post from yesterday about CA Prop 37 – CA Right To Know Initiative to require food manufacturers to label GMO foods.
Then, hop on over to Jen at Peas and Crayons for some inspiring eats. Thanks Jen for hosting.
