Good Morning!

It’s time for another WIAW!

Thanks Jenn for hosting once again!

What I Ate Wednesday GOES GREEN


When I woke up yesterday I was really in the mood for my Berry protein Loaf, but I didn’t feel like baking, boo!  So while I decided what I wanted to really eat I munched on 2 of these Belvita biscuits.  The blueberry is my favorite 🙂

And then I figured I really need some protein in me before I go to Crossfit!  So I whipped up one egg and one egg white real quick.  Then I figured why not throw it onto an English Muffin,  so I made my Paleo English Muffin.  Topped it with some Apricot Jam, and I was good to go!

The edges got a little crispy in the toaster, but it was still so tasty.  I also needed some fruit so I ate some strawberries that I cut up the night before.  That’s what food prepping is for!

This is also going to be a What I worked out Wednesday just fyi!

Crossfit was BRUTAL yesterday.  I have learned to not underestimate a workout that LOOKS EASY, because most likely it will NOT BE EASY.

I wanted to cry several times during the WOD- I am such a baby.


We worked on Snatch Grip Deadlifts First.

I always have to take my shoes off because I don’t have crossfit shoes yet.


25 Goblet Squats – 35# Kettlebell

20 Walking Kettlebell Swings

12 Abmat Situps

I did it in 12:15.

After that BRUTAL workout, I refueled with my Beverly International Protein Shake- Vanilla



I started with a pear


Then a Tuna Patty.  This time the ingredients were slightly different.

2 Servings

  • 1 Can of Tuna
  • 1 Egg White
  • Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub (this made all the difference in the world) You can use any burger/steak seasoning you like
  • Garlic powder
  • S&P
  • 3 tbsp Oats
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Flour

Mix all ingredients together and form into patties. Cook on stove top for about 3-5 minutes on each side.

While I was out I picked up some almonds that were on sale.  I was so happy!  These things are NEVER on sale.


I snacked on some of these in the afternoon.  They have barely any sugar in them which is awesome.


For some reason I was craving a pop, and I usually don’t drink pop at all so I had a Zevia.  These are sweetened with stevia and only have 5 carbs per can.


I really need to drink more water so I will be sure to have some with dinner and the rest of the evening!

I also made some of these little muffins for breakfast tommorrow, and I ate one after I made them too, duh.

Feel Free to use more or less honey/stevia.  You can sweeten these however you like.  You could even try it with unsweetened applesauce.
