It’s already time for another installment of What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks again to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting this link up every week. I love getting new ideas for meals and snacks from other bloggers. Plus, let’s be honest… I’m totally nosey and love the idea of getting to see into other’s lives for a day! You know you like it too…
Pre CrossFit I had a protein shake and ProSculpt… but I forgot to take a picture. You know what a blender bottle looks like? Imagine 2 of them. Done.
The WOD totally did me in today. 100 Kettlebell swings for the strength, then 5 rounds of 12 hang cleans and 12 burpees. There is just something about burpees that makes me want to vomit every time. Seriously, what it is?! Anyway, the finisher was 2 x 500m row. Ah, yes… row 1000m after nearly puking thanks to burpees.
All that to say I had a protein shake when I got home, tried to go for a run then realized that wasn’t going to happen, went home showered and laid down for a few minutes before making some scrambled eggs with ham.
that I forgot to take a picture of.
No worries I remembered to take a picture of lunch! and it was SO good. Just an easy mixed green salad, tomatoes, cucumbers and left over flank steak from Sunday’s dinner. Salad is definitely one of my summer staples, especially with my favorite dressing: Ken’s Lite Northern Italian
I love the flavor of it, plus it only has 45 calories per serving AND it’s gluten free. Awesome, right?
A few hours later I was getting hungry but it was too close to dinner for a big snack so I just made up another protein shake with my GNC Egg Protein and Chocolate PB2. Yummers. And finally you get a picture of the blender bottle I know you missed…
After working some more and finishing up some blog stuff (Check out yesterday’s post about Losing Weight with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis!) I started working on dinner. I’m super excited to share this with you! I found this recipe for Paleo Turkey Meatballs and I was so excited to try it out. It came together really quick, but was super messy. While I was making the meatballs I roasted some Spaghetti Squash. I put the meatballs in the oven and started on homemade marinara sauce. I used 3 cans of tomato sauce, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 onion, 2tsp minced garlic, spinach and carrots from the food processor, italian seasoning, parsley and basil. I let it simmer, then the meatballs were done. I piled it all on my plate so quick I almost forgot to take the picture… but I remembered at the last second, aren’t you glad?!
I really wanted dessert but I spent so much time cleaning the kitchen from my dinner cooking fiasco I was too tired to make banana soft serve. Maybe next week!
And that is what I ate. Ta-da!

That lunch looks fantastic! Always love seeing some fabulous Paleo eats! That WOD sounds killer! Hang cleans are always a challenge and to top it off with 100 KBS! Craziness!
It was crazy… and I’m feeling every bit of it today!
Those turkey meatballs look awesome! I love eating them but have trouble making them on my own for some reason! A summer staple of mine is corn on the cob and green beans for sure!! Oh and fresh fruit of any kind! Especially berries! Have a super day! SPALove!
You HAVE to try this recipe, it was pretty simple. Granted my meatballs were flat on one side… but they still tasted great. AND they were packed with veggies!
I always read about the paleo diet, but I’m an “almost” vegetarian. Not intentional, just eat what I crave and it’s usually not much meat 😦 But when you mentioned banana soft serve you started speakin’ my language!
Also I nominated you for a Liebster, but think you might have done it already 😦
I tried going vegetarian for awhile because my dr said the hormones in most meet could mess with my thyroid. Then I realized I actually like meat so i started trying to buy better quality meat.
and lets not get me started on banana soft serve. with PB2. and chocolate chips. Holy yum.
Thanks for the nomination! I did do it over the weekend, but I LAUGHED so hard reading yours. How did you get so funny?
mmm that looks delish! my summer staples include avocados for sure 🙂
Oh yes, avocados from mexico (that jingle gets stuck in my head!) Have you ever tried Avocado mousse or frosting? It intrigues me but i’ve never tried it.
Oh those turkey meatballs looks delicous & your workout sounds like a killer, but in a good way 🙂
Have a wonderful rest of the day girl!
Thanks for stopping by! It was totally killer in the I’m going to puke kind of way, lol!
I’m lovin’ salads!
Perfect summer lunch (or dinner!) quick to throw together, refreshing and delicious! Love them!
Your crossfit workout sounded so intense! It was like 3 workouts all rolled into one! You rock girly!!
It was rough! But I survived. barely. I hate burpees. Have I said it before? Evil Burpees. Have fun on your road trip! I’m jealous you are going to be at the beach soon and moving to Texas. I love texas!
Looks yummy! I recently discovered Noosa yogurt and my life will never be the same. I’ve been eating it as a snack every day.
