happy Wednesday fitfam! Welcome to my second installment of What I Ate Wednesday (#wiaw)!
I’ve still been logging my food in myfitnesspal daily and it’s been so helpful for me to track my food with. it really is a daily reminder to stay on track with my nutrition as well. i hope you enjoy this post, please comment with questions if you have them!!
vanilla coffee protein shake
- 1 scoop vanilla, 100% whey protein
- 6 oz cold or room temperature coffee (i usually just make extra coffee everyday and save what i have leftover in the fridge for my shakes, if you only have room temp then just add some ice so it’s cold!)
- 3 oz Califia farms unsweetened almond milk
Add all ingredients to the shaker and enjoy it. you can also blend it up with extra ice to make it more frappuccino like. I like to do that in the summertime.
- 1 cup of 365 peanut butter & cocoa balls
- 4 oz Califia farms unsweetened almond milk
I’m slightly obsessed with cereal and I like to try to incorporate it into my breakfast if possible every once in a while.

bacon, egg whites & over easy eggs on toast – who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?? I could probably eat breakfast for every meal of my day. this takes almost no time to whip up and is loaded with plenty of protein and healthy carbs. I take one slice of toast and spread harissa on and then on the other I used the fruit spread then layered the bacon on, egg whites on both slices and topped them with an over-easy egg and sprinkle of feta cheese on top.
- 2 slices 365 center-cut bacon (reduced sodium)
- 2 slices whole foods 100% whole wheat bread
