food, WIAW

What I Ate Wednesday: First Edition!

I’m so excited to join in with Jen from Peas & Crayons for WIAW! I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile but I always forget to take pictures until its too late (aka- the food is already in my belly!)My day started with GNC Pro Sculpt pre-CrossFit – 4:40am
GNC ProSculptDuring CrossFit I drank my Blox Silk Amino Acids, they really do help! (Well, they don’t help you overcome an irrational fear of box jumps…) 6:20am- Post CrossFit Protein, right now we are using Level 1. It’s apparently made locally. We got it from Supplement SuperstoresAfter showering I made breakfast. I typically make the same type of breakfast every day: eggs, organic bacon from local farmer’s market, and some kind of veggies. Today I added a piece of sargento thin sliced colby cheese. Around 10:30-11 I usually have some kind of small snack. Today it was a handful of dry roasted almonds.Throughout the week the meal I struggle with the most is lunch. The typical turkey sandwich is out the window with the Paleo-esque diet we try to have. I decided this week I was going to make a big batch of a copy cat version of Chiptole’s Naked Burrito Bowl. I put a couple of chicken breasts in the slow cooker with a can of diced tomatoes and a can of Rotel and let it cook for a few hours. Then I took the chicken and shredded it using my Kitchen Aid (saw this on pinterest… it is so brilliant!). I added a bag of frozen peppers, a can of black beans, some garlic salt, cumin and chili powder and let cook about another hour. Tada! Fajita Bowls for the week! I know dairy isn’t paleo, but I still use it sparingly. I topped my Fajita bowl with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.I had to try the Zico Chocolate Coconut water that I finally found- YUM! (I may or may not have cleared out the shelf of this stuff when I found it…)zico chocolate coconut waterAlso- the hubs brought me home a Starbucks Refresher. Have you had it yet? SO good. And the big size is 120 calories. In my opinion, a better option than a huge latte! I also had a CLICK protein shake with almond milk as an afternoon snack. Caffeine overload. Oops. Starbucks Refresher, Click Espresso ProteinFor dinner I just kinda winged it. I knew I had to use Pork Chops, since thats what I defrosted. I also have a ton of veggies that my Father in law gave us from his garden, so I wanted to use those too. I would typically have a starch or grain along with the meat and veggies, but I decided to make “mashed” cauliflower. I boiled some frozen cauliflower, added a little butter and a lot of garlic salt and then mashed them up. It wasn’t my favorite meal, but it got the job done. After dinner I went for a quick 1 mile jog around the neighborhood. It’s one week until the end of the 60 Day Fat Loss Challenge, so I’m trying to do everything I can to make this week count!What is your current favorite meal?

  1. Hi Courtney! Thanks for visiting my blog! My fiance fixed my bike, yay! But it’s too hot to ride right now.

    We made faux-buritto bowls the other night, too. I’m impressed with your menu – I would have snuck in a handful a chocolate chips with my almonds.

    1. It is! It was the first I’ve tried of it… and I love it! I don’t like plain coconut milk, but love the benefits of it. Adding chocolate solves everything!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I Love your blog (and you have a pretty awesome name!) That fajita bowl is SO good, and I love that if I make enough I don’t have to think about what to make for lunch!
