What I Ate Wednesday

Welcome back to What I Ate Wednesday!

This is a weekly blog post where I literally tell you what I ate in a particular day. I use to say, “Who would actually care what I eat in a day?!” But then I realized three things:

  1. Actually showing people what I eat goes a LOT further than just telling them. It makes it seem more feasible! These days with the start of my private practice, I do not make elaborate meals or spend too much time in the kitchen- but I make it work!
  2. I feel like a lot of the time girls (and boys too but I’m addressing the girls here) underestimate how much they need to eat in a day. We don’t have to eat rice cakes and vegetables to be fit and healthy. (Not knocking those things- I’m just making a point!) So I hope my full day of eats inspires you to not sell yourself short when it comes to nutrition. Our bodies need that fuel!
  3. Also, sometimes I drink beer and eat cheese puffs… I don’t always post these things on Instagram. (cheese puffs are not very photogenic…) But this post allows me to disclosure those things and remind you all— a “real whole foods diet” is great… but so is ACUTALLY LIVING LIFE.

So lets get to it!

Breakfast: Black coffee + two Vital Farms eggs fried in butter + two pieces of avocado toast (I drizzled evoo on the avo toast). Pretty damn tasty. 

PS- y'all. I'm so so into my Bullet Journal.... I'm not a naturally very organized person. My thoughts and to-do lists are just all over the place. I knew if I was going to be a successful business owner, I had to figure something out. THIS WORKS. I am a creative person and art is my JAM... so the Bullet Journal actually makes me excited about organization because I can create content myself and make it pretty!

Mid-morning beverage: MATCHA LATTE. Made with 1 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk, raw honey and 2 tsp collagen. Blended in the blender.

More snacks: After finishing my last client in the afternoon, I joined V at Station House where we both partook in more snacks.

almonds, strawberries, dried mango

Dinner: Pizza + honey mustard salmon. What happens when you want salmon but you also want pizza….? You make both. Duh. The pizza crust is from Simple Mills- they have my absolute favorite gluten free pizza crust! It’s made with almond flour and oh so tasty. I just topped it with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. CAN’T BEAT IT. I made a honey/mustard glaze for the salmon by simply combining equal parts dijon mustard and honey. I liberally applied it to the top of the salmon and let is marinate for at least 30 mins. I then cooked the salmon in the oven on 350 until flaky- but not dry!

My good friend Amelia is leaving St Petersburg with her boyfriend to pursue their schoolie life in Tennessee! They are literally remodeling an old school bus to be a friggin HOME! Follow their journey here and here! Anyho... her going away party was last night at Green Bench Brewing Co. in St Pete. Obvs I partook in my most favorite IPA.

My go-to evening night cap: peanut butter with dark chocolate chips. So basic.
