Happy What I Ate Wednesday. Hope all is well in your corner of the interweb. As I mentioned last week, I just started a new corporate wellness job, and this past Monday was my first real day seeing clients there. Mondays have become that marathon day where I go from projects in the morning to work to appointments after work, and I’ve officially accepted that wearing a backpack is way more comfortable than lugging multiple bags around town.

So in the spirit of this weekly link-up and look at what a dietian really eats, here’s what I had on Monday. It was a major picture fail of a day, but all the more realistic!

Breakfast: Savory Oats

During the workday:

-A boiled egg between morning clients (not pictured)

-Lunch of salad with chicken, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, peppers, and roasted brussels sprouts with apple cider vinegar; apple dessert,

-Late afternoon snack: 2% Fage with flax

Dinner: I was so tired when I got home, I just threw together a salad with the remainders of what was in the fridge—essentially the same thing as lunch since that’s what I had.

Bedtime snack: I was still hungry after dinner, so I had some plain Greek yogurt with a tablespoon each of cocoa powder and PB2 mixed in. It was exactly the right mix of stuff to settle my stomach before calling it a night.

I usually try to have more variety over the course of the day, but as you can see, there are just some days that get away from you where convenience matters more!

Do you have a long commute for work? What do you have for dinner when you’re exhausted?
