WIAW: Balanced Meals

Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday!

I tried to create more balanced meals this week and so far I think I am doing well. I am also making an effort to incorporate a protein, carb and fat into each meal! This was Monday’s menu.

Breakfast: 8:00:

A toasted Arnold Sandwich Thin with a vegetable egg puff and spinach. (All I did was pour egg beaters and frozen mixed veggies into a bowl and microwaved it for 4 minutes! I washed it down with a Golden French Toast k-cup and some Trop50 orange juice. This puff got much bigger than anticipated! It made this sandwich more like an omelet-burger!

Lunch: 10:45:


A pomegranate Chobani with blackberries and a side of boiled carrots. I have said this before but I HATE raw carrots so I have to cook them or they do not make it into my meals.

Snack #1  1:00:

Banana and a low fat cheese stick

Snack #2 4:00: Post workout:

I bought this Clif bar at Trader Joe’s over the weekend on a whim. I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I actually enjoyed it!

It had a lot of fall like spice to it and all I could think of was how good it will be paired with a hot cup of pumpkin coffee.

Dinner: 6:30

A healthy chicken taco!

  • ground chicken
  • sauteed peppers and onions
  • sliced avocado
  • diced tomatoes
  • low fat Mexican shredded cheese
  •  2 tbsp Salsa Autentica

We have tacos and fajitas quite a bit, but I don’t think I will ever learn how to properly fold a tortilla. This baby just would not close on its own.

Midnight Snack: 9:30

An old favorite

Trader Joe’s popcorn with some sweet toppings 🙂

Overall this was a pretty balanced day of eating for me! There were lots of different colors and food groups represented which is always the goal.



What food group do you gravitate to most and why? Which one do you eat the least?

    I HATE raw carrots too, but when they are boiled I don’t mind them as much!

    I never tried the Cliff Bars, only the Clif Kid ZBars. Any suggestions on good flavors? All your eats look delicious! 🙂 PS. Fold the ends in first, then roll. 😉
