Breakfast, Part 1 (pre-workout):  Cottage Cheese  

This is my third time participating in Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday (here is my first and here is my second)…I know I don’t participate as much as some people, but I hope I’ve given someone out there some meal inspiration!  It’s actually more of a challenge than it seems to photograph everything you eat in a day (it’s really time-consuming and makes you think more than you normally would about what you’re ingesting), and this has caused me to gain even more respect for bloggers who post every meal they eat, every day of the week (Kath immediately comes to mind!).  Anyway, hope you enjoy my eats of the day!

Breakfast, Part 2 (post-workout):  Maple-Cinnamon Millet Porridge (with millet, oat bran, & flaxseed, topped with sunflower seeds…a very birdseed-like kind of porridge ;) ) 

Lunch:  Veggie Plate (roasted broccoli, zucchini coins, & chopped salad)…I was craving veggies something fierce!  (For anyone who’s interested, the zucchini coins are really easy to make!  Just slice up a zucchini, dip it in beaten egg white and then in a mixture of chickpea flour/sesame seeds/herbs/spices; brown the zucchini coins in olive oil over medium-high heat, flipping once.) 

Because it’s such eye candy, I had to share one more picture of the veggie plate.  :) 

Mid-Afternoon Snack:  Mocha Protein Shake Topped with Raw Cacao Nibs

Dinner:  Guinness Beef Stew 

Evening Snack:  Apple with chocolate-peanut butter Greek yogurt dip (1/4 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 to 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 packet stevia, & 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract; topped with chocolate chips) 

(Unpictured:  Multi-vitamin, water, & a cup of coffee with my porridge in the morning!) 

Thanks for hosting, Jenn!

  1. You are so good Faith! always eating healthy and scrumptious recipes ~ I really like the healthy mocha protein shake :) Do you have a recipe for that?~

    1. Daisy, Yup, I’d be happy to share my mocha protein shake recipe! Just blend the following until smooth: 1 cup milk (any kind you like; unsweetened coconut milk is my favorite in this), 1 scoop unflavored protein powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 packet stevia, a pinch of sea salt, 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and a handful of ice — it’s delicious! :)

      1. Thanks Faith for sharing :) Definitely gonna give it a go sometime soon ~ I love how you use stevia and not sugar hehe it’s much better for us ~

  2. I Want to eat at your place every day! No seriously…this looks like a fabulous day of eats! If I took pictures of what I ate every day, everyone would be SO BORED. It’s a LOT of leftovers. :P

  3. That veggie platter looks fantastic. Love the idea of using chickpea flour and sesame seeds as a coating.

  4. I really love it when you do WIAW! I know what you mean, I don’t think I could do it every day, esp not if I had to make it look good like you do! I forgot about your Guiness beef stew, THAT’s what I could have made with the leftover Guiness I had from some baking experiments. It looks so good! Everything does!

  5. Your meals always look so tasty and healthy! The veggie plate does look delicious! I will for sure have to try the chocolate-peanut butter dip with my apples!

  6. I’m impressed at how healthy you eat, Faith! And, that you photographed all of it! Definitely a worthwhile exercise and an interesting group challenge :)

  7. You eat so many healthy and tasty dishes! I am on a diet so my food palate is less interesting than yours. The zucchini’s and the shake are the ones that caught my eye!

  8. Lovely food! I’d eat everything.



  9. Inspiring…yes definitely!
    I’m quite bad at photographing a whole day’s worth of food, mostly (I think) because a lot of what I eat are not real meals…just random stuff!
    Thanks for sharing yours….it made me crave cottage cheese :-)

  10. Please please come make all my meals. My special requests are those zucchini coins and that yogurt dip- what a great idea!
