WIAW: New Meals

Happy Wednesday!  This morning I am beat - I ran 9 miles Tuesday night with my run club and then woke up this morning and did another 4 miles.  Another fake double and my legs are in need of some rest.

This week for What I Ate Wednesday, I thought I would try to switch it up because I eat the same foods almost every day.  I really did try to "Go Green" and I tried to use some new recipes!


So instead of showing you my usual daily meals with my boring oatmeal and coffee for breakfast, I thought I would show some of my new favorite meals from the past few days!


In order that they appear -

Sunday's Dinner - Crock Pot Chicken Chili with toasted Italian bread and butter.  This recipe was so easy and made a ton of leftovers.  It is packed with protein and really fills you up.  I ate leftovers on Tuesday for lunch and it kept me full until my run at 5:30pm.

Monday's Lunch - Egg White and Avocado Salad with lettuce, peppers, tomato, carrots and little dressing on the side. I made a few changes with this and took the yolk of the eggs and mixed it with mayo and then used lettuce instead of a wrap.  This was a great little lunch to go along with my usual cheddar goldfish and animal crackers.

Tuesday's Post Run Dinner - Small Shells with Pesto. I was not very hungry last night after my run which happens every once in a while.  I had made the pesto a while back and stored it in the fridge and I just happened to have some leftover shells so I heated them up together.  This was delicious and just reaffirms how much I love Pesto!


Thanks to Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW!

I found you on WIAW...that pasta looked awesome :). I find that I am often not hungry after long runs or hard workouts, either...until a few hours later when my stomach is STARVING!

I need to start a run club. That is such a good idea. Oh and you definitely need to get to the Hunger Games. Loved that show! I love love your site. I’m putting together a huge giveaway in conjunction with a novel about a runner. We’ve received some amazing sponsors for our giveaway and hoping you will be a part of it. Our idea is to promote our book and the products as well as your blog. Hopefully a win win for everyone involved. I sent you an email with more details.
