FitFluential Style & WIAW
Before I show you all of the delicious meals and snacks I ate yesterday, I want to show you a purchase I just made that I can’t wait to get in the mail. FitFluential now has an official workout tank!
I love about this design. I love that it’s a bold pink and I love that the back says “#PROOF”. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@wishandwhimsy) you notice that I like to play the #PROOF hash tag game. After a workout, I’ll post a #PROOF photo, showing you that I’ve completed my workout. #PROOF holds me accountable toward my commitment to live healthy and promote fitness to others. Love it! There are shirts for guys and girls available that you can purchase from ViewSports here. (Don’t worry, the guy’s design is as “cool” but not pink.) The shirt ships on August 22.
Now to show you Tuesday’s meals and snacks.
Breakfast: Banana Protein Souffle topped with Peanut Butter. Cinnamon French Toast coffee.
I’m slightly ashamed to show you practically the same breakfast I’ve had for the past several weeks. It’s just SO delicious and good for you, too. I enjoy this so much because this protein packed breakfast tastes just like something I’d enjoy at a bakery, minus the flour and loads of sugar. I wonder if a protein powder bakery exists? Without the peanut butter, here’s the protein souffle break down: Cals. 239; Fat: 3.5g; Sat. Fat: 1.1g; Cholest. 65g; Sodium 222.7g; Carb 16.8g; Fiber 2.8g; Sugar 7.3; Protein 34g.
Adding peanut butter adds about 50 calories. I top the souffle with only half of a tablespoon while it’s still warm, to letting it melt, creating a gooey icing. Now do you understand why this breakfast is showing up all of the time? I am challenging myself to make something new to share with you for next week’s WIAW breakfast. If I show you another souffle, as heavenly as it is, I’ll bake and send you cookies for my apologies. On a serious side, WIAW is a great way to see when I need to add more variety to my diet. While I record everything I eat, seeing my food choices in photo form draws attention to repeating patterns. Time to change up my breakfast choice. **(Please feel free to suggest a new high protein breakfast by commenting below. I’d love to try one of your recipes and feature it next week.)**
Pre-Workout Snack: Better Oats “Oat Fit” Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal topped with cinnamon.
Since my workout consisted of a little more cardio than usual, oatmeal was a great pre-workout meal. This particular brand is only 100 calories. Odd fact about me: unless we’re talking overnight oats, I prefer my oatmeal on the dry side, only adding enough water to let it cook to the consistency of an oatmeal cookie.
Lunch: Panera Bread Strawberry Poppy-Seed & Chicken Salad with no dressing, an apple and lots of water.
Technically, there’s no poppy-seed in my salad. I’ve mentioned before that I no longer order salad dressing on my salads, preferring the taste of the whole, fresh greens, vegetables and fruit on their own. This salad is perfect “dry”. There are bursts of real fruit with every salad bite including fresh pineapple, blueberries, and strawberries.
Post-Workout Snack: Luna Protein Bar Chocolate Peanut Butter
While I’ve always heard of Luna Bars, I recently scored a few on sale and thought I’d give them a try. As I’ve raved about them on Instagram (@wishandwhimsy) the S’mores flavor is incredible. I gave this protein Luna Bar a try. While it was delicious, I felt more filled by the S’mores variety which are a little larger. But don’t get me wrong, this bar was delicious, too.
Dinner: Veggie scramble with Roma tomatoes, Vidalia onion, spinach and topped with roasted red pepper hummus and avocado slices.
One word to describe this meal: Phenomenal. Breakfast food is wonderful at anytime of day and this simply was delicious. I can’t wait to make this scramble again soon.
Dessert: Frozen Raspberry Greek Yogurt topped with Trader Joe’s Strawberry Yogurt O’s.
What better way to end your day than with a bowl of frozen greek yogurt? I’ve been topping my frozen yogurt with a bit of cereal to add a bit of crunch to the sweet treat. Since we’re talking frozen greek yogurt, I’m a finalist for the Frozen Oikos Decathlon which begins on July 26th. I’ll be “competing” in the 3rd round which will be around the first of August. I’d really appreciate your vote. Read more about the details and what YOU can win.
So, there’s every morsel of food that entered my body yesterday. A delicious day of meals and snacks that fit well with my eating plan. I don’t think there is anything I would change about yesterday’s food choices. Curious to see more foods I typically eat? I post most of my meals and snacks on Twitter and Instagram.

Wishing you the best. Katie
