There have been a lot of searches on my blog about what my daily food and nutrition intake is. I don’t often participate in WIAW or post a lot about food. Is that still a thing, talking about what you normally eat on Wednesdays?
Honestly if I posted more than once every few months it would be boring. I eat relatively similar meals each day, I’m a simple “Walmart purchasing chef”. I don’t care for fancy foods or recipes. Tim and I are rather simple but since there have been so many searches on my blog for it, I thought I might as well write a post about my nutrition (And by so many searches I mean 5).
Right now I’m currently not running. I’m not as hungry as if I was running 70 miles. I hope this doesn’t last too much longer.
I’ve been back into a waffle mode. Over a year ago, my blog was best known for eating lots of waffles. I would post weird recipes including a smoked salmon waffle, etc. (Now my weird weekly post includes what diner I’ve gone too). I’m currently just enjoying plain homemade waffles topped with syrup and Greek yogurt. It normally takes all over 15 minutes to make and I can eat and enjoy reading blogs. I eat breakfast around 6am.
I tend to get hungry again on my way to work. Around 10am I have a snack which is generally just a power bar. My favorite power bars are the cookies and cream and also the vanilla. I think I buy 50 at a time and just put them into the fridge until needed. I know I could make my own but these taste good and I like them. I also know there are also much healthier or nutrient dense bars…but these are what I like and they are relatively inexpensive.
Lunch is normally around noon. It is usually pretty boring and it ends up being whatever I have leftover in my house. Is it a piece of salmon? Is it a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Is it a salad? Today it was a roast beef sandwich with spinach, provolone cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. It was good.
I normally pack another sandwich that I eat around 3pm at work too. Staring at people’s feet is hard work…it makes me hungry.
Dinner is a hit or miss. If I get done with work at 7, I’ll wait until I get home until around 8 to eat. If I get done at 8, I’ll bring dinner to work (or go to the street to the Italian restaurant) and eat. I like being off at 7 so I can enjoy dinner with Tim but being off at 8 makes more money too.
Tim and I are very meat+potatoes+green type of dinner people. We either have a piece of meat (baked, grilled, sauteed…whatever), some sort of bread/potato and a salad. This happens probably 5/7 nights for us. The other two nights we will either go out to eat or have breakfast for dinner (normally when we need to get to the grocery store).
Some of my favorite dinners:
Steak or fish in general
My evenings are normally spent relaxing and hanging out with Tim. We watch reality TV (anything from Restaurant Impossible to Catfish to Awkward…really whatever the DVR has picked up). Occasionally I’ll browse the internet, chat to friends. It’s a relaxing period for both of us.
Sometimes I’ll have a nighttime snack and sometimes I won’t. For some reason I have been craving apples at night (I think because they are sweet and crunchy). Other nighttime snacks include smoothies, pretzels and realistically whatever is in the pantry. Last night I finished our last ice cream sandwich.
Anyways then I go relax in bed around 9-9:30 and fall asleep before 10 (Generally).
