What I Ate Wednesday : Meal Replacements

WIAW

So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…

WIAW Breakfast

This morning I tried another shake that I got from my Influenster GoVoBox (Disclosure Policy) (yesterday I had the mixed berries and today I’m drinking the French Vanilla before I head off to the gym. Yesterday I used water with the shake (as instructed) but this morning I wanted to see what it tasted like with milk, so I added 8 ounces of almond milk (which in my opinion makes everything extra tasty and smooth) and Oh my goodness it tastes so much better

Just 1/4 cup of almonds…. the perfect combination of salty and sweet, and I usually have them as an after workout snack. As evident by the empty bag (as well as the number of times these almonds have made an appearance on WIAW proves how much I like them.

Did you know that regular consumption of almonds helps to increase the level of high density lipoproteins (HDL) and they reduce the level of low density lipoproteins (LDL). This balance is vital to a healthy cholesterol level, and a reduction of LDL (bad cholesterol) is always a good thing. AND almonds are a fantastic source of many vitamins and minerals, and phosphorous is definitely counted among them! Phosphorous can have a considerable impact on the strength and durability of bones and teeth, while also preventing the onset of age-related conditions like osteoporosis…. so eat your almonds people!!!

WIAW Lunch

I had a Slim fast shake from lunch, as you can tell I’m following the Slim fast schedule, a shake for breakfast and lunch along with 2 snacks and a “sensible” dinner. What the hell is a sensible dinner? especially when you are drinking fluids most of the day

My mother is always asking telling me that my food is boring, this week she was right on the money, nothing I ate was terribly exciting, but I wanted to see how well these meal replacement shakes work, and from my perspective they work really well.

But any who….  here is my caloric intake for today….
