Happy What I Ate Wednesday friends!
Yesterday I talked about how I am experimenting with my diet, specifically fuelling for strength training. This is what I ate/did on Friday (because I actually remembered to take pictures) but this is pretty typical as of late (especially on Crossfit days) with a bit of variation here or there. Almonds instead of cashews, banana instead of berries, salmon instead of tuna. Kinda boring but satisfying and yummy.
What I Ate
Before Crossfit, I had a hard boiled egg and a few cashews.
After Crossfit (we did “Ollie”… 5 push press, 4 pull ups, 5 burpee box jumps, 4 toes to bar… 11 rounds for time = death), I refuelled with two more hard boiled eggs, 1/2 an avocado, yellow pepper, spinach and blackberries. This was seriously delish. I am actually starting to love my savory breakfasts.
Mid-morning I had some baby carrots and cashews.
For lunch, I made a super easy and delicious tuna salad. I used one can of tuna, the rest of the avocado, a sweet potato and sprinkled hemp seeds on top. All I did was peel, steam and dice the sweet potato, mash half of the avocado (so a 1/4 of an avocado) with the tuna, top with the rest of the avocado and sprinkle some seeds. Done.
After running some errands in the afternoon, I came home and had a banana with hazelnut butter and a pear.
I went to a 6:30pm movie with my parents (American Hustle — so good) but I wasn’t hungry for dinner beforehand. Sooooo….
Yes I made dinner and brought it to the movie with me. I’m either…
a) a big loser
b) prepared for my inevitable hunger
c) a rebel for bringing “outside food into the theatre”
I’ll go with all of the above. Anyways I threw together what I call “quinoa fried rice”: quinoa, edamame beans, peas, carrots, yellow pepper, egg whites and soy sauce. I just made it before we left, put it in a tupperware, brought it to the theatre and chowed down.
After the movie, I was still a bit hungry. I had a few strawberries (un-pictured) and a piece of chunky monkey fudge [recipe] before calling it a night.
And that did it!
Questions of the day…
So: a) or b) or c)?!
Do you sneak food into the movie theatre?
