Hi everyone! I have now joined the masses to participate in “What I ate Wednesday”. Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons who hosts the WIAW, we get to take a look at someone’s day in food. The idea is take take pictures and give a description of a whole days worth of meals, then tell about it by blog on Wednesday. I have wanted to do this for several weeks, and every time I would forget a meal or get too busy. So yesterday, I got a whole days meals in pics!
Breakfast I shared yesterday, was strawberry protein pancakes and a chocolate covered strawberry or two! My portion of the pancakes (below) was less that 200 calories! They had 18 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber.
Lunch was a Mediterranean wrap. I used one of my favorite wraps, Flat Outs, some hummus, layers of cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, onions, olives, mini sweet peppers, spring mix and thin grilled sliced tofu steak. It was a lunch that provided energy and really got me through the day. All these flavors and textures really combine well, especially the hummus, it really pulls everything together nicely. High in antioxidants and fiber, overall low in calories. This wrap was 350 calories, 29 grams of protein, and 17 grams of fiber!
Onto dinner. It was taco Tuesday! Any celebration meal, Andy wants tacos. So, for Valentines, I made him his favorite, of course! I used some TVP and Azuki Beans with spicy taco seasoning for a taco filling. The topping included, tomatoes, avocado, olives, shredded vegan cheddar, shredded spring mix, cilantro (for me), vegan sour cream, and Trader Joe’s Salsa. I have to admit, since taco shells are not really on my diet plan, I only ate one shell and had one in a Trader Joe’s reduced carb wheat tortilla. Andy was very satisfied, Mya thought they were too spicy, and I enjoyed every bite.
The total for both my tacos, soft and hard shell, with all the fixings was 374 calories, 17 grams protein, and 15 grams fiber.
Dessert… Chocolate Covered Strawberries! My chocolate covered strawberries were about 40 calories each. I had 3 yesterday.
