What I Ate Wednesday 2/19/14

Ok, before I delve into all the wonderful things I ate yesterday, let me just say that last Wednesday it was SNOWING.  Yes, snowing.  And this Wednesday, it was 72 degrees outside.  Such weird weather patterns here in the good ol’ NC.  Anywho, here’s what you’re waiting for:

Breakfast:

2014-02-19 08.58.05

For breakfast, I drank my typical coffee with organic cream.  I also drank a bottle of water, but I didn’t take a picture of it.

I ate an apple turnover, a navel orange, and a banana.  While I would like to say that my apple turnover was homemade, because I haaaave made them before, it was actually one of those Pepperidge Farm frozen Puff Pastry Turnovers that you bake for 20 minutes to delicious perfection.  I devoured the turnover, then I ate a banana and navel orange as they were.  I love me some fruit!

Lunch:

I was at work during lunch, so I only had a limited amount of time to eat, and seeing as I didn’t really give myself time to pack a lunch before I left for work this morning, I decided to go to Panera Bread during my lunch break.  I ordered the “You Pick Two” option for a salad and sandwich however, I only had enough time to eat the salad (and I just took my sandwich home for lunch tomorrow).  So here was my lunch:

The “You Pick Two” sized portion of their classic salad with extra cucumbers and their balsamic vinaigrette.  I also drank half a bottle of water with my lunch.  So boring, I know.

Snack:

2014-02-19 17.00.26

Since my lunch wasn’t terribly filling, I had a snack when I got home from work, so I could fuel up to take my Gabberwocky on a “walky!”  I ate a cup of French Vanilla Yoplait yogurt mixed with ¼ cup of French Vanilla Almond Granola from Nature Box.  I can never have enough vanilla flavored things!  It doesn’t look terribly appetizing, but it sure is!  I drank the other half of my bottle of water during my snack time as well.  Yes, I am 23 and I used the term “snack time” when referring to my own day.  I also have a “nap time” if you were wondering.

Dinner:

2014-02-19 19.13.20

While my chicken was baking in the oven, I made myself a glass of strawberry lemonade herbal tea from Teavana with a teaspoon of their German rock sugar added to it.  I also drank this during dinner, and yes, that is a Stictch cup.  I’m only kind of a kid. 🙂

For dinner, I made my own simple recipe of baked Italian chicken (I will post the recipe for this dish at a later date), as well as some Uncle Ben’s Butter and Garlic rice with some seasoning (rosemary, thyme, and basil) added to it, and French style green beans. 2014-02-19 20.12.18

I have to say, I was not a fan of this flavor of rice, and I haven’t ever disliked any of the Uncle Ben’s flavors of rice.  I tried to ‘doctor it up’ as much as I could with the seasoning I added, but I think there was just too much ‘fake butter flavor’ (is that even a thing) in it for me to like it.  So I ended up eating only a third of the rice that I had on my plate. Womp womp.

Dessert:

2014-02-19 21.06.05

Because I didn’t completely finish all of my dinner, since I wasn’t a fan of the rice, I ate my dessert less than an hour after I finished my dinner.  And my dessert consisted of an entire can of peaches (yes, unfortunately the kind in the oh-so-sugary syrup) as well as 4 Birthday Cake Oreos.  And let’s not get me started on how delicious those are…2014-02-16 18.49.50

So there ya have it!  What I put in my tummy on our wonderfully sunny Wednesday!

Bows and Arrows,

Lynda
