A (snack filled) Day In Eats

Happy Wednesday!  How is your week going?  Today I am jumping on the “What I Ate Wednesday” train to share a day in eats.  This is from Monday, which ended up being an especially busy day.  This translated into lots of smaller, easy to grab things through out the day, and a super quick dinner.

I started the day with my favorite before class drink of iced coffee, protein powder and collagen.  I went with chocolate protein this time, so it was nice and mocha-y.  My class is super early, so this helps me get up and go when I am leaving the house before 6AM.

A little while later I enjoyed this delicious chia pudding (recipe coming soon), and a packet of Trader Joe’s Trex Mix.

I had some midday meetings, so I broke lunch up.  Around 11:00 I had some carrots (I think the purple carrots are so pretty), celery and hummus.

Along with this protein bar.  This was the first time I had tried this kind, it was okay.

Later, around 1:30, I had lunch round 2.  A small salad with chicken, blueberries and honey mustard dressing, and a side of pineapple.  That pineapple was perfectly ripe and delicious!

After collecting the kiddos and getting home, we all snacked on pita chips and more hummus while I got dinner ready.

Om the menu was bean tostadas.  I also whipped up some quick calabacitas, which I had been craving.  We also had some black olives on the side, and I enjoyed a ginger kombucha.  This meal hit the spot, and came together pretty quick. Win!

Later in the evening I snacked on a bit of kettle corn while catching up with the hubby.  I have been trying to stay away from the sweets.  But we have a bag leftover from the little guy’s party, and it was calling my name.

What is one of your go to, quick weekday dinners?  I love doing tostadas, quesadillas, or cobb salads because I can put them together super fast and the whole family likes them.

Hope you have a great day!

  1. I feel you like kettle corn and ice near a Wegmans, they make one with coconut oil and Himalayan salt that is SO addictive!! My go to dinner meals are breakfast for dinner (too easy!) or taco salad!

  2. I’ve never had chia pudding, but yours looks delicious!
    My go-to meals are veggie quesadillas (the leftover filling can be used for veggie tacos!) and grilled fish and asparagus and potatoes 😊

    1. Grilled fish with asparagus and potatoes sounds awesome! I will share that chia pudding recipe tomorrow if you want to give it a try. Hope you have a great day!

  3. You eat very similarly to me! I love hummus and veggies. Such a killer combo! And those TJ nut packs are the BEST. I need to pick up some more of those to keep in my purse 🙂

  4. Yum!! Your snacks look incredibly tasty! I am such a big popcorn fan that I don’t really trust myself with it haha. The kettle corn gets me in trouble. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Yum! I love snacky foods! I love raw carrots (though I really love ranch on them) and I love things like fruits, side salads, pita chips, etc.
