Good morning! It’s Wednesday already, can you believe it?! Crazy crazy.
Even more crazy is that the fiancé and I leave for Washington DC tomorrow night. It was an early birthday surprise for his 30th birthday, although someone leaked the secret a few weeks ago (I won’t say who!). Besides doing the normal touristy stuff, we are also going to stay with a good friend of mine from high school and her fiancé.
Although I don’t talk to or see my friend Amber as much as I’d like, she is still one of my favs. We played soccer together in high school, worked together at the local soccer store, and went to college at Madison together our first semester (before I transferred colleges). Besides having a huge heart, she is funny, sweet, and beyond compassionate. My freshman year in college was rough for me as I was still working to overcome an eating disorder. After I transferred Amber always sent me sweet cards, that I still have to this day. I am beyond excited to see her!

So anyway, there probably will be a lack of posts between now and when we get back next Monday. I’ll see what I can do about putting together one in advance, but the next two days are going to be jam-packed!
Let’s move on to today. It’s What I Ate Wednesday! This is what I ate yesterday, and it’s all good stuff. Read on:
WIAW 5 (What I Ate Wednesday)
Breakfast: Some of these Grain-free Peanut Butter Banana Muffins I whipped up earlier this week. They are the best gluten-free (and in this case grain-free) muffins I’ve ever had. Not too sweet, which is just my style. You could certainly add more honey to sweeten them up, or some chocolate chips. I’m definitely making a double batch of these next time!
Lunch: After weight training with the soccer girls, I came home and put together this beast of a salad. It was delicious, although I think I overdid it on the whole grain mustard and apple cider vinegar. It was a bit vinegary for my taste! Regardless, it was still yummy!
Eat yo veggies.
I also had a mini slice of French bread from the bakery with mashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt. So simple yet so good!
Dinner: The fiancé and I made this stir-fry Monday night, but I had the rest leftover for dinner before I ran off to teach yoga. We were also making my favorite Buffalo Wings but they weren’t going to be done in time before I had to leave. So the fiance finished them up and I had a few once I got home!
Peppers, onions, broccoli, and chicken with a peanut sauce over jasmine rice.
So that’s about it! Oh, and I also had a KIND bar earlier in the afternoon. They finally came in the mail after what felt like forever! I’ve found it’s much cheaper to order them in bulk through the Vitamin Shoppe than to buy them from a grocery store. $15.99 for 12 is a pretty good deal! The Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt are my favorite, as they have low sugar and chocolate. Can’t beat that.
I also had a bite of this Sugar Free (sweetened with Stevia) dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s for dessert. As you could tell I just tore that corner right off and dug in!
Alright you all. Hope you’re having a wonderful week! If I don’t talk to you between now and next Monday (or so!) have a wonderful weekend as well! And feel free to leave me a message, I love hearing from you!
