WIAW#12 – What I ate Wednesday


6. March 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning and welcome to a new round of WIAW hosted by Jen over at Peas and Crayons!! I can only recommend to head over and check out all the creative cooks linking up!!


Before I jump straight into this foodparty I have great news! Sandro and me booked our trip to the U.S.!!! We will spend 15 days in both NYC and Boston in June – I can not wait!!!!! Wooooooot!!!!

Something else really wonderful happened on Monday late afternoon: I had the first springrun at the lake!!!! It was sunny and warm and I ran without gloves! It was SO refreshing and light and felt so so good with the sun in my face, and the glitter on the water of the lake. When arrivingΒ  home, I felt so energized and added some mini workouts from TIU. I am on a TIU kick lately as you see. I just love the scenery of the workouts, it makes me feel I am there at the beach too. πŸ™‚

So fuel was needed. I already had tons of veggies throughout the day so I went for a full bowl of protein…..

After work I cycled to the supermarket to get some stuff for the week. I only came from Zurich in the morning so did not do any meal prep or shopping, so food was needed!

Chicken, Smoked Salmon, Nori Sheets, Broccoli, Lemons, Sweet Potatoes, Eggs, Bananas, Blueberries, Chickenbreast, Strawberries

Since I was already 30 minutes on the Spinning bike before work in the morning, I skipped the gym. I did a few Ab Burner Rounds from Gina and then had dinner.

Dinner was simple and uncreative…..

Chicken Jerky, Broccoli sauteed in Coconut Milk, Mini Sweet Potato

Throughout the day and before bed one drink was always present: Tea. I usually have 1-2 big cups of green tea with lemon and ginger in the morning, in the afternoon and evening I switch to Gingertea, Nettletea, or just mixed Herbtea.


That’s it for today folks! Have a wonderful day!!

What is your favorite drink? Tea. And Prosecco. πŸ™‚

Do you prepare your meals in advance? I do. It makes my week so much more relaxed and I can eat healthy every day even when busy.

  1. All of your meals look delicious. I can’t get enough of the pancakes all in big thanks to YOU πŸ™‚

    Aww, those cookies!! And I don’t get what was about that dinner being unattractive – it’s the most beautiful thing – give me the fork, spoon, anything – the hell, I’d eaten that with bare hands!
    I have to stop starring at your food. Seriously. I’m always getting so hungry! Like right now. Pancakes are calling my name!!
    My drink is always water, then coffee and then the vine πŸ˜‰
    Happy Wednesday, sweetie!

    • Hahaha, ‘stop staring at your food’ – you crack me up girl πŸ™‚ I promise you will love the pancakes!! Just watch out, they are very low calorie. You might need to eat the double amount πŸ™‚

  3. Ha! I had a very similar dinner last night…turkey deli meat and a roasted kabocha squash with cinnamon…and of course I got a little #strangebutgood action in there and drizzled some coconut peanut butter on top! DEEE-lish! πŸ˜‰ And that salad looks to die for!! It’s been so long since I’ve had some good grilled tofu! I need to remedy that pronto!

    I don’t usually do a lot of meal prep but as you saw from my post on Monday, I got a wild hair and ended up with quite a few things to nosh on throughout the week! I have to say it’s been rather nice not having to worry about what to pack for dinner to take to work all week! πŸ˜€

    Favorite drink as of RIGHT now…homemade chai lattes!! My milk frother has been gettin’ a lot of action lately! Lol

    • Uh, I need that strangebutgood flavor on my next Sweet Potato too, sounds so yummy! And I am all about strangebutgood. Yup, I think Meal PRep is useful, as my head is quite dull during my workweek, I would probably put yogurt in the oven or something stupid like that πŸ™‚

  4. Those cookies are too precious!

    I actually don’t do a lot of meal prepping…although I try to make big meals for dinner so that I have leftovers. I should think about hopping on the meal prep bandwagon, it seems to make things a lot easier!

    • I think some spontaneous cravings or intuitive eating is GREAT. But I just don’t have the time during the week. I usually just go with the flow on the weekends though!

  5. I always prepare my meals in advance. I agree, it makes the week so much less hectic!

    Those pancakes look awesome. Love those big globs of sweet topping πŸ™‚

  6. Nothing like deli meat, I love snacking on it and eating it whenever. great snack

  7. Mmmm yum all looks so good!!! That salad looks delicious especially.

  8. My favorite drinks…coffee in the morning, hot tea at night and diet coke all day. Could be healthier, but oh well.

  9. livliveslife says:

    Wow, that salad looks fantastic! I would say my favorite drink is water, but when I want something different, I love green tea lemonades!

  10. Bunny, C. says:

    So many yummy eats! I especially like the look of the quinoa dish πŸ™‚ Re: your q’s, I’m not really a flavored-liquid drinker, but I do enjoy myself a good milkshake!!

  11. bella says:

    Everything looks great, and I need to check out those pancakes you are raving about. Always looking for a healthy pancake recipe.

    Your cookies are cute, and that salad looks great, no wonder you eat it often.

    I also enjoy drinking my green tea throughout the day, but never added ginger or honey to it, just drink it without anything.

    Is this your first time visiting in the US?

    So glad I stopped by! Have a great day girl πŸ™‚
    P.s. After coming back from an extended blogging break, I’ve started a 40 day challenge to get HEALTHY by my birthday. If you get a chance to check it out, I could sure use the support!
    Hugs, Bella πŸ™‚

    • Hey Bella, so happy that you stopped by and thank you so much for your comment!!
      I’ve been a lot to the U.S. before since I used to be a Flight Attendant πŸ™‚ But I haven’t been there for a long time now and so much looking forward to it!
      I will check out your challenge, sounds fantastic!

  12. I have been loving the warmer weather and have been running outside finally. I am literally counting down the days until spring. All your meals looks delicious, the cookies are adorable!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
