Hey everyone! So for today’s post, I’m going to show you what I eat during a typical work day. I love watching these kinds of “What I Ate” videos on YouTube, because it’s just interesting to see what other people eat, and maybe get some new ideas/inspiration for your own meals!
To start off my day, I always have a cup of a coffee! Always! These Eight O’ Clock Hazelnut k cups were on sale at my local grocery store recently, so I thought I would try them out. So far I really like them! Other than my cup of coffee, I usually don’t eat any other breakfast. I know I know, I probably should be eating something else, but I’m just not a big breakfast eater.
Another reason why I don’t eat much breakfast is because my lunch break at work comes pretty early. Today, I had a little sampling of different things. I had some fruit salad, with grapes, kiwi, mango, pineapple, and cantaloupe. I also had a handful of peanuts and cashews with some extra sharp cheddar cheese. I love the salty/creamy combo of the cheese and nuts together! Lastly, I had a couple of these two-ingredient banana oatmeal cookies! They are super easy to make and really pretty healthy. They only call for two ingredients (the bananas and oats), but I like to add some peanut butter, wheat germ, cinnamon, ground flax-seed, or chia seeds just to bump up the health factor. Last but not least, I have a big glass of ice water in my Bumper to Bumper cup (gotta represent)! 😉
When I get off work I usually have a small snack just to tide me over until dinner. However, today I was really busy and I didn’t have time to eat anything, but I did have another glass of water!
I try to have dinner ready between 5:30 and 6, because Avery and I are both usually starving! On the menu tonight is tilapia fillets, baked sweet potatoes, and mixed vegetables. I tried a new seasoning rub o the tilapia and it was pretty good! I will link it below! Avery didn’t like it though; she thought it was too spicy…..she’s very sensitive to spicy things though. I’ve been on a sweet potato kick lately, and I just can’t seem to get enough of them! They are one of my favorite things to have as a side, or an entire meal if it’s big enough!
I like to have a snack a little later in the evening, and Avery typically has one with me. Most of the time, I actually end up sharing my snack with her! Tonight though, I was working on the blog and didn’t get around to my snack. So instead of something really impressive and delicious….I just had a handful of grapes! …I guess I could have put these in a bowl..to eliminate this awkward hand shot, but I really did just eat them out of my hand! And I didn’t want to get a bowl dirty just for some grapes!
Maybe I’m the only weird one who likes to see what people eat…but I hope not. 🙂
