What I Ate Wednesday


Ok, round two. I just had a whole post almost complete and it somehow just vanished. Note to self, save draft!!!!! Welcome to my second What I Ate Wednesday post of the new year. If anything at all I can commit to getting these posts done, because I love Wednesdays and I love linking up with Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for this weekly eats link up.

This Monday my company started a Biggest Loser Challenge that runs for 8 weeks. I promised the girls I would bring in a big batch of green smoothies to kick-start the challenge. I bought so much baby spinach, I have ended up having this peachy green smoothie everyday. I do love a good tasting green smoothie. On the plus side, I have converted four new people over to the green drink side! Winning! I love introducing new foods to people! It’s very rewarding.

So Green Drink it is – everyday – for breakfast!

Because the challenge started Monday, I also did some major food prep on Sunday. I stocked my fridge with freshly made grab-n-go salads, lean protein, and tons and tons of fresh veggies.

This was one of my grab-n-go salads topped with albacore tuna and a Dijon mustard vinaigrette. Served in my favorite *NEW purple bowl from IKEA!

I posted my pic on Instagram last night of my yummy fish taco dinner. I have been addicted to these bad boys for a few weeks now. I originally made these tacos for girls night the other day and I have been hooked and craving them ever since. Since I started the challenge on Monday, I opted to have my fish tacos, taco-less. (Smile!) I topped this crunchy purple cabbage slaw with a perfectly baked piece of mahi-mahi slightly over seasoned with cayenne. Made my lips tingle a little too much. On the side was a tiny bit of corn and eggplant salsa and topped with some crunchy corn tortillas and cilantro! It was amazing and fresh and light. A perfect change to heavy winter meals.

I ended my night with a glass of Trader Joes Strawberry Kefir! Adding fermented foods to my diet is my food goal for 2014! So far I am loving the way my body is reacting to the kefir!
