Hey you! Happy Hump Day, and as usual, happy What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting!
This post is going to be a tad shorter than normal as I am leaving for Chicago today, and I have some last-minute packing! Nothing like procrastination, right? Why Chicago? My mom works remotely from home and her office is based in Chicago, so she often travels out there. She always comes home and gushes over all the shops and healthy restaurants they have there. After many times saying, “I have to bring you sometime!” the day has finally come 🙂 I can’t wait to get my FIT-FOODIE ON!
But for now, let’s focus on what this fit foodie ate last Saturday.
I woke up and had this delightful Tone It Up Perfect Fit waffle, topped with blueberries and maple syrup! I gulped down some water to hydrate before heading out to teach an outdoor spin class as the local outdoor shopping mall. There was a heat advisory for that day, so I knew it’d be hot, even at 8:30 in the morning.
After spin class, I was STARVING and ready for Breakfast #2. That’s right. Speaking of Breakfast #2…what is it with kids and having two breakfasts on the regular. And then a morning snack on top of that? Did you hear of that? Apparently it’s a thing.
Breakfast #2 was slimming breakfast tacos! Two eggs scrambled with onion and some black beans, topped with salsa, and wrapped in gluten-free white corn tortillas.
Then, it was time for some pampering and Mommy and Me catch-up time! The salon we go to has THE BEST seasonal pedicures. Mint Melon Mojito is the seasonal pedicure for now, and we took full advantage! The pedicure included a “sea salt soak; a blend of rosemary and organic mint tea. Follow up with a succulent vodka and raspberry extract polish that will tempt you for another round. Next, we protect and savor the smoothness with a honey heel glaze and end in a heavenly massage with cucumber and melon scented body milk lotion” (Taken from https://www.facebook.com/oliverssalondayspa).
Along side all of that wonderfulness, we were served fresh melon and a mojito! It was so incredibly refreshing and relaxing!
Later in early afternoon, I was ready for a late lunch. I have been loving making mock-Chipotle salad bowls lately. Cajun-rubbed shredded chicken, sautéed peppers and onions, a small scoop of brown rice, guacamole, salsa, and light sour cream top a fresh bed of romaine lettuce. Deeelish!
I have SO much zucchini right now, as I’m sure anyone that is growing zucchini does! It was time to pull out the trusty zoodles, turkey meatballs, and tomato sauce. I also used up a fresh cucumber from our garden for a cucumber and tomato salad in balsamic vinegar.
I am 100% certain I had dessert this night, because I have dessert every night, but I don’t think I snapped a picture. I’m also not entirely sure what it was. However, my desserts lately have either been berries and chocolate, or Halo Top ice cream, so it was one of the two!
That’s all I have for today! Thanks for stopping by for What I Ate Wednesday! Check back Friday for another Local Friday Finds post!
