Morning! Before I get to my What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) eats, I have some really exciting news. Last night, I finally hit publish and launched the Health Coaching page on my blog. Check it out! I will have more information about this coming in the next week or so, but in a nutshell, I’ve decided that I want to put my Health Coaching degree to full use and start coaching people on attaining a healthier relationship with food, their own bodies, and their weight. I talked about my entire Health Journey here, and my struggle with weight and emotional eating, and now want to help others free themselves of the burden this can have on their life. More to come on this! Much more.
ANYWAY, on to things equally as important… Breakfast! Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW.
Rye toast, egg whites, melted American cheese. An orange, and coffee.
Must I remind you about how much I love my egg and cheeses? 😉
Lots of work was done in the morning, then a stroll through Central Park for about 45 minutes, and then Lunch.
Spinach base, chopped up cucumbers, carrots and red pepper. About a third of an avocado, 2 Black Bean Lentil Veggie Burgers, and roasted sweet potatoes. Drizzle of balsamic vinegar, truffle olive oil, and salt.
Sooo, because of the 2 hours of prep I did on Sunday, this whole salad took me literally 3 minutes to throw together! The veggies were already chopped, the burgers and the ‘taters were already cooked…this was so nice and easy! The prep really does pay off- I never would have had the patience to put this salad together if it took more than a few minutes.
So colorful 🙂
In between two of my classes, I had a little bit of a break so I found a coffee shop, VBar, down by NYU and stopped in to get a few things done. I hardly ever have a second cup of coffee, but I needed it yesterday.
Then it was off to my second class at Columbia. How pretty are the lights around their entrance gate??
Right before my 5:00 class started, I had a snack to hold me over.
A juicy pear and cheddar cheese slices.
Dinner was eaten on the late side and was also really quick and easy.
Chopped up Grilled Chicken, Whole Wheat Couscous, Sautéed Mushrooms, Slivered Almonds. Again, all things I made on Sunday during my massive prep session.
And finally, a cookie (recipe coming soon) and almond butter to finish off the night.
And that’s a wrap! Have a great Wednesday.
