WIAW! Protein Packed Edition!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  Once again I haven't followed an entire day of eats, just have pictured some of my favorite foods over the past couple of days.

On Saturday after my 8 mile run I decided to try a new protein packed breakfast. I've been wanting to try Tina's Oatmeal Minus The Oats for a while and decided this would be the perfect time. 
3/4 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup coconut almond milk
1 banana mashed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients and cook on the stovetop until the right consistency for you is reached. It wasn't bad....but it wasn't my favorite thing in the world. I think next time I will make less because I couldn't even finish it.  But I was glad to get a good post run meal in full of protein.

Other meals I've been loving:
two of my favorite things together: almonds and chocolate

hummus, veggie and cheese wrap

Last night's dinner was also really good:
Turkey Taco Pasta  I followed this recipe, but cut it in half and used turkey instead of chicken. I also used only greek yogurt instead of greek yogurt and cream cheese to thicken the sauce.

In the pan cooking before I added the pasta and greek yogurt

YUM  get in my belly. This recipe is a keeper.

I've also been keeping up with my half marathon training schedule. I ran 4 miles outside yesterday after work and it actually wasn't horribly hot out!

Today I am "off" meaning Matt and I have volleyball tonight.  Tomorrow I have 3 plus strength on the agenda and Saturday I will be trying for 8 miles again. 


  1. Ohhh! That turkey taco pasta looks ah-mazing!!

  2. I agree with Liz. It looks absolutely delicous. Great job for sticking with your training plan too girl :) Have a wonderful day!
