Happy Wednesday!  It's easy to lose track of the time during the summer, but I realized I haven't done a 'What I  Ate Wednesday' post in so long!  It's about time I really thought about everything I eat in an entire day.  Obviously everyday is different... but here's just a sample of a day in the life of me!
I started my morning with a nice balanced breakfast.  I had a fried egg, a handful of gluten free pop chips, a scoop of PB2 (ie. the BEST low calorie peanut butter ever... seriously, I'm in love with this stuff!) and an apple!  Yummy and healthy.
For lunch I went back to my parents' cabin, which is across the lake from the Christian resort I work at.  My mom always has a glorious assortment of tasty treats on hand, many of them a little more 'indulgent' than I care to enjoy.  I made myself a lovely lunch and then I took a little afternoon 'siesta'!  My lunch included half of a leftover grilled hamburger, some fresh veggies from the local farmer's market, a scoop each of homemade light potato salad and gluten free pasta salad, more pop chips and some Greek yogurt/ marshmallow salad with fresh fruit!  Yummy, healthy and all gluten free!
After lunch, I decided to have a little scoop of lite Moosetracks ice cream because... well, I love sweets and they had some in the freezer... it was meant to be, right?!  YUM!
Also, (unpictured) I had a small apple and cup of coffee in the afternoon before my waitressing shift.  Then at dinner, I had a garden salad with light dressing, feta and cauliflower, a sweet potato and ham!  I also had a small nectarine and plum... so fresh, healthy and delicious!
Okay, I'll admit it... I had a second dessert!  (#foodfreedom ??)  I had one serving of lite chocolate ice cream (only 70 calories!) and a package of Non-GMO gluten free, vegan cookies!  Yummy and oh-so-satisfying!  (Besides July is national ice cream month so it's okay, right?!)

Looking back on my day, I realize I didn't eat as well as I could have ( I see a green smoothie in my future!)  Regardless, that was my day, and it was a DELICIOUS day!

What about you?!  Do you ever eat ice cream twice in one day?  What did you eat today?

I add PB2 to smoothies and love it! I also love Pop Chips but seriously cannot buy them anymore because I will eat the entire bag!

I love seeing people's WIAW posts - a little glimpse into their food lives. =) There's no shame in two ice cream servings in one day - some days, you need to treat yourself! =)

True!! ...I love to treat myself daily! It prevents me for feeling deprived and pigging out! haha...it's all about balance, right?!

Ice cream twice in one day sounds like perfection to me! Extra calcium, right?

I need to just buy some PB2. I've been wanting to try it. Ice cream twice in one day is always okay during the summer! Those gluten free cookies sound really tasty too!

They are!! I LOVE Lucy's G.free Vegan cookies... seriously, most gluten free foods aren't my fave, but even 'gluten eaters' love these cookies!

I never realized how perfect ice cream is in the summer until I lived somewhere so hot and humid! I could go for some now :)

Agreed, PB 2 is the bomb! I alternate between using regular nut butters and PB 2.

Funny, I was just talking on my blog the other day after how I overdid it with the desserts while my father-in-law was in town visiting. He loves dessert, and whenever I'm around him, I wind up eating so much dessert! haha.

Wow, this was inspiring! I don't eat great all of the time, and usually I despise health foods, but seeing what you eat makes me think I could do it! Besides the egg for breakfast and the white salad dressing (I can't do white sauces...), I feel like I could actually eat that stuff! Maybe sometime I will have to have someone like you give me a meeting plan. I guess I will have to find someone with the knowhow to do it...

Yes!! Healthy food really can be tasty!! :) You will have to give some of it a try!

I definitely love my ice cream! Especially in this weather. I love the look of your meals. So healthy! I think that by sticking to healthy meals, you can afford to indulge in a little of what you fancy :D

I TOTALLY agree!!! It really comes down to moderation and balance!!

When I was a kid, I used to eat ice-cream 2-3 times a day during summer! Lovely memories. Maybe one day I'll repeat the experience :) p.s. I bought some extra virgin coconut oil. I'm using it as a skin moisturizer and hair conditioner for my split ends. So far so good!

YAY! So happy for you!! I hope that you are liking the coconut oil!! ...and yes!! I'm all about nostalgia :)
