WIAW: Avocado Mini Fail

I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!  This is my last day in the office this week, which is soo exciting.  Even though I still have to work for the next 2 days, being remote still makes the week feel shorter.  Always a good thing.

On to the WIAW (or in this case Tuesday) Eats!

Breakfast: The usual, Chobani and Grapenuts.  I went with the strawberry flavor this morning.

Morning Snack: Yup, you guessed it another banana.

Lunch: I went with another Mexican inspired salad, spinach, tomatoes, green pepper, carrots, quinoa, chipotle roasted sweet potatoes, and avocado.  Unfortunately, my avocado was a bit of a dud.  I’ve been spoiled by some really good ones lately, so I guess I was due for a bad one.  It was the right amount of squishy when I held it, but somehow that ripeness did not go all the way through the fruit.  The top layer was squishy, but the inside was hard as a rock and did NOT want to come off the pit.  It turned into a bit of a mess.  Oh well, the salad was still decent.

Afternoon snack:  I had two, first my regular apple

and second a Chobani Flip.  I went to an Orange Theory class after work yesterday for the first time (review coming soon) and knew I would need a little extra protein to power through.  I noticed these little snacks on sale at the grocery store and decided to give it a try.

I LOVED it. Yummy yogurt, almonds, and a little bit of dark chocolate.  It really hit the spot and gave me 13 grams of protein to boot. I will definitely be picking up more of these.

Dinner: Chicken tamale pie.  Have a mentioned that I love tamales? Well I haven’t gotten around to ordering more from the Tucson Tamale Company yet, so this was the next best thing.  The picture doesn’t look particularly appetizing, but this dish is ah-mazing.  Green chile cornmeal base topped with chicken, black beans, spicy enchilada sauce, and cheese.  It really, really hit the spot after a tough workout.

I added in some veggies with a big ol’ beet and goat cheese salad.  This time I added TJ’s Honey goat cheese and man was that delicious.  I could eat a whole block of that by itself. Yum.

Dessert: A cup of Nightly Calm tea.  I am not a big tea drinker, but my sleep has been so rough lately that I was willing to give this a try.  I was worried it would taste horrible, but it actually wasn’t bad.  It smells a lot like a spa which was kind of nice.  I’ve tried the tea two nights in a row now and have slept pretty well both nights.  No idea if the tea had anything to do with it or not, but I’m willing to keep it up just in case.

That’s it for me.  Happy Hump day!
