What I Eat In A Day #5 & A Small Haul

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend :) Did you do anything fun? I did quite a bit including going to a movie Saturday evening (a BIG step for me!! - saw The Smurfs, it was cute!), the mall on Sunday (also a big step) and had a productive Monday. I also decided to re-activate my gym membership and went for the first time yesterday and did some cardio. All in all a very busy weekend with lots of steps in the right direction.

For today's post I photographed my meals from yesterday and I also have a small haul from Trader Joe's. I needed more romaine lettuce so I decided to just grab a few things while I was there.

For breakfast I had Trader Joe's gluten free waffles with some peanut butter, banana and maple syrup. Seriously delicious!

For lunch I had my favorite Mediterranean type plate with stuffed grape leaves (of course!), tomatoes, carrots, hummus and a piece of bread from the Turkish market.

Dinner was my new favorite salad again with romaine, cranberries, almonds and Gardein crispy tenders with the Panera Asian vinaigrette. So delicious.

For the haul I got Lavash wraps, apples, shredded cabbage, romaine hearts, mushrooms, slivered almonds and snow peas. I also made a stir fry to enjoy over the next few days on Monday. I almost grabbed the whole wheat Lavash but decided to check the ingredients and noticed there was honey in there. I'm glad I checked!

I went for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday evening and came across this gorgeous tree with the most beautiful blossoms. I had to stop and take a picture! That is my favorite thing about this time of year. The neighborhood looks so beautiful and it was nice to get some fresh air.

So that's what I have for you today! I hope that all is well with all of you. I'll see you again on Saturday with another post! <3

I'm always so annoyed by honey in whole wheat products. Same thing happened to me last week at Whole Foods. Grabbed the whole wheat pita bread, only to discover honey in the ingredients. But the white version was honey-free. I'd rather have whole wheat, but ... sigh. Anyway, the food looks yummy! That Mediterranean snack plate looks right up my alley. That bread looks AMAZING!

Oh no, I know I've had the whole wheat lavash before, I assumed it was vegan because the white is vegan. Sigh. Bianca is right, honey in whole wheat breads seems impossible to avoid. It's also in a lot of gluten free breads I've looked at. So frustrating!
I love all the blooms and flowers and leaves coming in this time of year too.
Congratulations on a movie and the mall! And the gym! I have never and probably never will work out in a gym, I'm way too self conscience! You're really pushing yourself! I heard that the new Smurfs movie is actually pretty good.

I know! I've found a few multigrain breads (one from TJs I think) that use molasses instead of honey and I love that. I'm glad that I checked though. I'd rather have whole wheat too but I guess I can't be too picky :)


Sarah said...

The honey was toward the bottom of the list and was easy to miss. It's really annoying but I have found a few whole wheat breads that use molasses instead of honey so I'll obviously just stick to those.

Thank you!! I'm really trying to push myself and I feel really proud of myself for doing so. The Smurfs movie was very cute and of course I cried because I cry at everything hahaha!

Yay! Big steps!! I'm so excited you went, and I bet the endorphins from the gym helped, too.

Look at yay Mediterranean plate! So gorgeous and delicious! I'm due for a TJ haul soon, but I need to find that Panera dressing!

Sarah said...

Thank you!! The gym has been helping me tremendously, especially with sleep! It's crazy!

The Mediterranean plate is still my favorite :) It probably always will be haha. OMG yes get the dressing, it's so good!

Since everyone already complemented your meals I will note that those are Dogwood Blossoms of the pink variety.
