First WIAW of May!

It’s that time again! Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday Smile .  Not too much longer until I am moving from my current apartment to one about a block away! I have been packing away all week!

In between packing, of course I snuck in some good eats.  My goal for the time being is to up my protein intake, so I tried hard to sneak some in wherever I could!  Thanks, Jenn!

Breakfast: 2 egg whites, spinach, and a little cheddar cheese heated up in the microwave and topped with some Frank’s red hot sauce! YUM!

Morning snack: Unpictured Goodbelly and string cheese.  I finished the 12 day good belly challenge and loved the way my stomach felt! Too bad I have to drive like 45 minutes in order to restock Sad smile

Lunch: Salad with spinach, romaine, cucumber, green bell pepper, pickle, veggie burger, and some red wine vinegar!

Afternoon snack: Men’s health nut mix by Planters.  Yep, I’m not ashamed of it.  It’s one of the few mixes that has pistachios in it, though, so I love it!

Dinner: Salsa chicken, edamame, and cucumbers with spicy pepper hummus.  For the chicken, I put chicken and salsa in a lightly greased dish in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes.  Then, I topped it with some cheddar cheese until it was all cooked and melted. Delicious!

Evening snack: Tropical popsicle and a spoonful of peanut butter! The popsicle even had a joke, just like when we were kiddos!

What do you get when you cross a centipede and a parrot?

A walkie-talkie.

Oh, Popsicle.  You are ever so clever.

I think I did a pretty good job with upping protein from where it was.  I am pretty proud of myself. Winking smile

What’s your favorite source of protein??

  1. great job on the protein lady!! I struggle with that one too sometimes, but eggs are totally my favorite source. I love them in any way shape or form. Especially as hardboiled and on top of salads!

  2. all the eats look delicious- especially that trail mix! i love pistachios!

  3. Mmm love your array of eats Nikki and nice job getting the protein in!

  4. I need to work on sneaking more protein in, too!

  5. Yummy eats!! I love to sneak more protein into my diet. I try to do it naturally (with food) but I will go for a protein smoothie any chance I get! Have fun packing! P.S. I love pistachio’s! They chap my lips every time I eat them though ;).

    the salsa chicken and breakfast look so good! I have a hard time getting enough protein, too. I turn to eggs, edamame, and recently lots of different types of beans. I highly recommend black beans and garbanzo beans

  7. Love the idea of adding a veggie burger onto the salad. I need to try that!
