This week has been quite a carb-heavy one. With the leftover pizza, Quaker puffed wheat cereal, pumpkin AND zucchini-pineapple muffins, and the English muffin mini pizzas, I’ve been feeling the weight of all that “bready” starch! I am NOT saying I’m anti-carbs. I get plenty of carbohydrates from non-grain sources, such as bananas and apples and beans and veggies, and I could never and would never want to give up my carbs…but too many “bready” foods (I’m talking about cereal, pasta, rice, etc.), and I start to feel a little bloated and heavy.
So, today I switched it up! I front-loaded my day with the bread carbs instead of waiting until the evening. (What, did you think I was going to say NO starchy carbs today? haha, nope!) Here’s the food i 8 today:
- English muffin pizzas (recipe here)
- 1 pineapple-zucchini muffin (recipe here)
- spoonful of almond butter, pre-afternoon workout snack
- three bean chili (recipe here)
- broccoli, carrots, + 2TBSP Sabra hummus
- Green Giant green beans and almonds (entire package)
- apple + 2TBSP almond butter
- WORKOUT: Body Pump (350 cals burned) and Body Step (435 cals burned)
Sadly, I have no, new, exciting food pictures for today. But I DID invest in a new kitchen gadget. I’m all about the apple slices and almond butter, so I thought it was high time I invest in an apple wedger. So I moseyed over to Target and found this gem:
There were about 5 to choose from, ranging from $3.99 to $20.99, so of course, I went for the cheapy $3.99 guy. And how did that choice work out for me? This photo makes it looks so easy, right?:
I’m not gonna lie…it was tough to slice that apple! Haha, I’m not sure if it was operator error or the quality of the $3.99 apple wedger, but in the end, it got the job done. I enjoyed these slices with a couple tablespoons of almond butter–always a favorite snack of mine!
