Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of my blogging buddies posting WIAW posts, and I had no idea what that meant. (Yes, maybe I’ve been living under a rock (or a pile of papers that need grading)). What I Ate Wednesday is a fun weekly post/blog social event started over at Peas and Crayons. Since I’m always looking for new, healthy meal ideas, I thought I’d participate. The hardest part of the whole thing for me was remembering to take photos of my food.
As you can see, the challenge in April was to eat an extra cup of veggies. No problem there! I make green smoothies for myself most mornings and pack veggie-laden salads everyday for lunch. And I try my best to eat more veggies for dinner, too. My main goals when it comes to balancing my plate at every meal is to make sure I have protein, veggies, and that I’m keeping the carbs low(ish).
Here’s what I ate on Sunday, but really this could have been from any day this week, because I have variations on the same meals for breakfasts and lunches. Dinner is the one where I add some pizzazz and variety.
Not pictured: PM snack – 1 cup of red, seedless grapes and 1 oz of smoked guoda cheese. (I told you remembering to take photos was the hardest part!).
I really liked doing this food log because it helps me see how colorful and varied my food is. Plus, knowing that I had to take photos of it helped me stick to my proper portion sizes. WIAW may just become a regular post for me.
What was the best thing you ate today?
