What I Ate Wednesday {Dietitian Edition!}

Since I started this blog 3+ years ago, I have never done a “What I Ate Wednesday” post.  Shocking, isn’t it? I figure people might want to see what a Dietitian eats on an average day.

So without further ado, here’s what I ate!

My mornings always start with one {or two} big cups of coffee with cream and sugar. Yes, REAL half and half and REAL sugar. None of that fake shizz for this girl. Give me creamy, sweet delicious coffee or give me death {or at least that’s what it feels like, ha!}.

Coffee and Makeup

I also try to drink at least 1/2 a Nalgene (1/2 L) in the morning too.

Before I head out the door I mix up a smoothie. They are always 1/2 spinach and 1/2 some mixture of frozen fruit {blueberries, pineapple, mango, blackberries, peaches, and bananas are what are in my freezer presently} and a scoop of protein powder. NOM. This one here is of the pineapple-mango-strawberry variety.

Once I get to the hospital, I sometimes have another cup of coffee {the RDs just got a Keurig!} while I’m screening patients and organizing my day – today I forgot my mug, so no extra cup. My morning zooms by and then all of the sudden it’s time for lunch. Today we had a special menu for Earth Day! Seriously, my hospital has the BEST food!

Bacon, Potato Kale, Tomato, Fried Egg

HR was also handing out plants and herbs this morning in honor of Earth Day. I picked out a succulent, mostly because I am terrible at remembering to water plants. Today also kicked off the start of CSA deliveries for Sierra Vista employees from Talley Farms. I haven’t joined up yet, but am seriously considering splitting a box with one of the other RDs.

After work, I popped a couple of my Blueberry Muffin Energy Bites that I whipped up last night.

And while I was at it, I took an #OOTD pic while chowing down.

After getting a nice workout in, Jaime and I headed to our favorite quick takeout joint, Tiki Hut, for rice bowls. I had a Caribbean Chicken brown rice bowl with broccoli, snow peas, and carrots. And a healthy glass of Edna Valley Pinot on the side. Duh.

And last but not least, I satisfied my sweet tooth by a slice of No Bake Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Bars. Helllooooo! So, so good!

So there you have it! A {food} day in the life of an RD. Perhaps not everyone’s idea of “perfect” eating {bacon and cream! gasp!}, but hardly anything to scoff at. Full of fiber, color, and variety. And most definitely {if not most importantly} satisfying. I love good food, and I love sharing my love with you! Hope you enjoyed!

Eat Well!
