Yes, Happy May 1st folks!!
I’m sure I’m not the only person who remembers that song… er, or I hope. All jokes aside, the first of the month is always extra special to me because it marks me & the hubby’s marriage anniversary – 5 months today! SO PSYCHED!!
Today is a pretty unorthodox “What I Ate
Wednesday Tuesday” also. Why, you ask? Today marks the second day in a row where I skipped breakfast! I know, I know… Who am I these days?? All for good reason though, and I made sure to get my nutrients the rest of the day. Yesterday, I actually had to get up super early for a special appointment that I will share more about later. **And no, I’m not pregnant yet guys!** Had to throw that in there. 😉 Let’s jump into my special and unorthodox WIAW #9!!!
As you know, breakfast was a no-go, but I did enjoy my new fave – French Vanilla capuccino…. mmmmm!
And you can bet that lunch took place a little early…
LUNCH, 11:30 PM
I then discovered that it was one of my co-worker’s birthday and so, she offered everyone these decadent and DELICIOUS-looking cupcakes! So, of course I started thinking up every excuse in the book as to why I
deserved to should indulge in one – i.e. “I didn’t have breakfast… gotta make up the calories somehow!” or “One little cupcake wouldn’t hurt.” And THEN, I realized I had this…
Saved…by blueberry greek yogurt folks! It totally hit the sweet spot! 😉 I also had some whole grain crackers and a few kettle chips throughout the day, of course. All in all, a great day thanks to being prepared with some healthy alternative snacks! I know what you may be thinking – but Koryn, where are your veggies??
Well, thanks to a slightly modified sesame chicken and broccoli dinner recipe from Beaute J’adore – I had a ton of them! Her version includes broccoli over brown rice… yum!
And in my version, I nixed the rice and instead included a bunch of mixed veggies (red peppers, carrots, baby corn, green beans, broccoli, etc)! It’s hard to tell but I promise those veggies are packed in there.
Oh and please excuse the poor quality of my camera phone. Cheers!!
What snack do you turn to instead, when you’re having an unhealthy craving?
