Instead of boring you with my breakfasts, lunches and dinners that look very similar, now that I’ve been spending plenty of time at home, I thought I’d let you in on the food that I ate while I was out of town. I must admit, when I go out of town, I don’t always eat the healthiest food. I like to squeeze in workouts when I can, but I’m much more lenient when it comes to what I eat, especially because I’m usually eating out. I think that I kept a somewhat healthy balance this weekend, but you can be the judge. As always, check out Peas and Crayons if you’d like to participate in WIAW.
Saturday Breakfast (8:30am)
After a 30 minute treadmill workout at the hotel gym, I grabbed breakfast from the breakfast bar. I toasted an English muffin and spread half with jelly, half with peanut butter. On the side, I had some strawberry Activia yogurt, and a cup of hot tea to drink.
After running around and preparing for the shower, I was more than ready to eat when it was time. I helped myself to big servings of both the kale & Brussels sprout and fruit salads, and finished my plate off with one turkey wrap and a few pieces of sushi. I probably could’ve gone back for more, but
brides can’t eat too much I had to save room for a piece of vanilla cake with cheesecake filling.
By the time dinner rolled around, my throat was achy (the beginning signs of my cold), but I was still hungry and knew I needed to eat something besides sugar. Before heading back to the hotel, my sisters, mom and I went to one of my favorite Michigan restaurants, Olga’s. I had the grilled chicken Olga — basically, a pita filled with grilled chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and plain Greek yogurt. The yogurt is what makes the sandwich! Curly fries came on the side.
Remember how I said I didn’t need anymore sugar? Well, that thought didn’t last for long. After dinner, my sisters and I were craving something sweet, and I needed something cool to soothe my throat. Since we don’t have one near us at home, we made one last trip to Ritter’s. I had a coconut chocolate chip “Glacier” (similar to a DQ Blizzard, but with frozen custard). Sidenote: If you’ve never tried frozen custard, do it (at least once in your lifetime). It’s good.
Sunday Breakfast (9:30am)
When we went down for breakfast on Sunday morning, the room was packed and the food was picked over, so we decided to check out of the hotel and grab something on the way home. We made a quick stop at Panera, where I ordered a bagel with bacon, egg whites and cheese. I also grabbed a cup of hot tea from the hotel before leaving.
As you can see, it wasn’t the healthiest of weekends, but I was there for a celebration, and I don’t regret my food choices. Now, if I can just get over this cold and back into my workout routine, I will feel better :).
Do you save treats for the weekend?
Do you feel guilty if you indulge too much?
