What I Eat (Day 3)

  • breakfast: overnight oats…1/2 cup Dorset Fruit, Nut, & Fiber Cereal soaked overnight in about 1 cup yogurt (1/2 FAGE 0%, 1/2 Wallaby Vanilla), plus a peach added this morning; a fig; water; iced latte (1/2%1/2, condensed milk, skim, Cool Brew)
  • lunch: carrots with edamame hummus; chicken sandwich (Great Harvest Woodstock Bread, roasted chicken, cream cheese, cucumber, avocado, lettuce, black pepper); a fig; water
  • snack: 1/2 of another latte…without the condensed milk
  • dinner: apple; Mexican quinoa salad over romaine (quinoa, cilantro, corn, black beans, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil)
Another non-stop day!  I was at the studio from 8:30 – 1 and then 3 – 9:30, teaching, choreographing, more teaching, and then Saintsations…I should just move in.  And no workout 2 days in a row!  I need to get to Boot Camp in the morning.

I ate breakfast before I left for the studio and brought the latte with me.  But when I got home at 1ish, I was starving.  Lots of dancing and not enough food!  Carrots with edamame hummus held me over while I made my sandwich.  I love having food ready to go in the fridge for this reason.  The hummus is very similar to the one I make with chickpeas…I just swap boiled edamame for the chickpeas.  It was inspired by this recipe.

Notice that I didn’t sweeten my coffee the second time around.  I try not to drink very many sweetened beverages and definitely no more than one in a day.  But honestly, I like lattes unsweetened…it makes the half and half more prominent…yum!

Lots of veggies today…my oncology RD friend (who emailed me in disapproval of my low intake yesterday) will definitely approve today.  Carrots, edamame, cucumber, avocado, romaine, corn, beans, tomatoes!  Fruits and veggies are one of the best things you can do to prevent cancer, right Danielle???  I try to have a vegetable based meal everyday…and I succeed on most days too.
I haven’t had dessert yet, but sitting here typing about food is making me want some!  Granola with milk maybe?  See ya tomorrow!

  1. Yes, Blair, you receive an Oncology RD stamp of approval for 5 servings of fruis and vegetables today as you focused on primarily plant based meals with lean proteins, adequate fiber, and healthy dietary fats! I'm so proud..and would have been even if you had ended the day with our favorite dessert...the Dairy Queen Blizzard. That's right, readers, Blair and I occasionally enjoy this fast food dessert just to prove we are normal eaters, too!
