Very First WIAW

PAfter reading several blogs for a while, I have noticed a lot have a What I Ate Wednesday post every week.  I like this because after losing a significant amount of weight people often ask me how I did it.  What I eat, how I work out, etc.  It’s not a magical equation, I can tell you that…its healthy eating and dedication to exercise.  But I thought the best way to answer these kind of questions would be just to show them!

I literally felt like I was eating all day and I still didn’t reach my calorie goal based on myfitnesspal.

I am big on having medium sized meals with lots of healthy snacks throughout the day.

Breakfast: Chocolatey Strawberry Special K with Almond Milk and Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Lunch: Salmon Cakes (runners world magazine) with chili sauce

Snacks: Banana with Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip, pineapple, grapes, carrots with hummus

Dinner: Garlic Shrimp and Bean Stew (runners world)

Snacks: Honey Teddy Grahams (my favorite snacks), Light n’ Fit Vanilla yogurt with Bare Naked Fit Granola, Maple Mini Wheats

After doing a lot of walking around town and running with the group I had a lot of extra calories today that I couldn’t have eaten if I tried (as you can see I was eating a lot).  The other thing I stick firm to is portion sizes so I can have a lot of snacks (but smaller ones).

What are your favorite healthy things to snack on?
