It’s been awhile since I linked up with Jenn for “What I Ate Wednesday” but given the fact that I am in the middle of my clean eating challenge I thought today would be a great time to do it :)  The clean eating challenge is going SO well and my challengers are really embracing it and going all in.  It’s been really cool too getting some new ideas for our meals over here!






WIAW Breakfast


My breakfast most days is the same – eggs scrambled with spinach and mushrooms, nitrate free bacon, and fruit.  Iced coffee with coconut milk and stevia on the side!



WIAW Lunch



Lunch was a leftover salmon burger on romaine instead of a bun, Greek yogurt dill dressing, and some baked Alexia sweet potato fries on the side.






After my workout in the morning I had chocolate vegan Shakeology mixed with unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 a banana, and ice.  Other snacks throughout the day included an apple, cheese stick, a few pita crackers with hummus, 1 dark chocolate square, and a caramel Greek yogurt.



WIAW Dinner



This soup is a winner!  I made Against All Grain’s roasted chicken and vegetable soup.  It’s full of nutrients – sweet potato, butternut squash, spinach, etc. and the flavors just scream fall.  I can see this making a regular appearance in the coming weeks!


Overall I am so happy with how this challenge is going.  You guys …. I haven’t had a Diet Coke in 3 days!  That may not seem like much but to a hard-core addict that’s like an eternity.  I doubt I will ever full eradicate it from my life but I am working hard to limiting it to only when we eat out and this challenge was the perfect jump start!  Off to get some stuff ready for Emmie’s birthday party.  Happy Wednesday!

#ShareAwesome: Using Technology Safely

My toddler is a master of my iPad you guys.  Like really.  Emmalyne has her own folder with her educational apps and movies and can easily navigate through the screens to find what she wants.  I still remember when we got our first computer and had dial-up Internet so it kind of blows my mind […] more


Friday Five

  1.  We got our schedule for 4th quarter and my head is spinning with all the “changes” that have already been made.  When you have guest lecturers who are providers in the community you often have to change the time a class is to fit their clinic schedule.  While understandable, it’s also VERY frustrating.
