I saw a bunch of other bloggers following this trend, so I jumped right in. Only to be super confused when Twitter was covered with "WIAW" (what I ate Wednesday) posts at 9am. Well how do you know what you ate if it's only 9am I asked? Silly girl- it doesn't HAVE to be what you eat on Wednesday. Oh. I see. Well I was kinda a fan of the Wednesday food journal thing so I'm sticking with it. It's my blog...I can do what I want to...right? However for those who want to follow the WIAW trend head to Peas & Crayons blog.
So here we go:
Breakfast- 630am - Coffee with Italian Spice Creamer and a strawberry smoothie
|It's 6am- let's take a picture!|
Snack 2- 1245pm- Apple Pie LaraBar
Snack 2.5 - 115pm- Apple pre-Sam's Club Run
Lunch- 3pm- Leftover pulled chicken BBQ on Udi's Gluten Free Bread with Salad (see recipe below)
Snack 3- 2 plain rice cakes with Laughing Cow and red pepper
Dinner- Feta, basil, and tomato stuffed chicken with roasted zucchini. Found today on the blog- Chic Meets Healthy
Snack "oh my gosh I have no will power"- possibly a sugar-free fudgesicle or almond milk ice....I'm posting early so I'll let ya know!
The pulled chicken BBQ dish came from Kyle's mamma. It has a killer secret ingredient. Basically cook chicken breasts in the crock pot with chicken broth on low about 6 hours. Shred chicken and top with BBQ sauce. Serve as a "sammy" with pickles and....are you ready...French's fried onions! Yes, those really unhealthy fried things! They're good and they make the sandwich so special.
Today I made another chaotic trip to Sam's club. Shew. I survived and was happy with my savings. I had to renew my membership for $40 today, but in my $118 spent on food I think I saved about $25 off Publix prices. Lower prices on egg whites, chicken, and frozen fruit. Sign me up!
So what's the best thing you ate this Wednesday?
Love and fried things,
Carissa & Kyle
