I am not usually one to get into “What I Ate Wednesday” but I have been trying hard to not eat grains and get my act together to take off the 5 lbs I put on over the summer. Therefore, I feel like I should keep myself more responsible by posting such things to guilt me into not eating too terribly.
Breakfast: Peanut Berry Smoothie: Strawberry, greek yogurt, skim milk, vanilla protein, flax, and pb2 smoothie….YUM
Lunch: Chicken Caesar Salad (light dressing, no cheese or croutons), fruit salad, and a mini Unreal Candy bar. If you haven’t seen these they are 100 calories Unreal Candy are ‘healthed’ up versions of your favorite candy bars. They don’t contain corn syrup, GMO’s, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors or preservatives. . .and priced the same as regular candy bars. Good stuff :)

Snack: Some cocoa almonds and greek yogurt.
Dinner: Dinner was quick after the cardio hell that I will post after. It was better than it looked it was just grilled chicken, light cheese, and nitrate free bacon. Not the healthiest but it hit the spot.
Honestly, I like living on a no grain diet. (Reminder, it has only been a week, things may change). Everything I usually mindlessly snack on is grain related. Chips, cookies, crackers, cereal, bars, and pretty much anything Cooper snacks on. So I am saving myself some serious calorieage. Bonus!
Now in between all this food was the cardio workout from hell. Today at CrossFit was a cardio endurance day and it was a nightmare.
