We LOVE What I Ate Wednesday, a weekly food diary “party” hosted by one of our favorite bloggers, Jenn of Peas and CrayonsWhat I Wish I Ate Wednesday is Healthy Way to Cook’s roundup of the best What I Ate Wednesday posts from the previous week.

Healthy eating with just a little bit of indulgence is the name of the game in this week’s WIWIAW, featuring posts from July 11th.

Caren from Inspired Coast is in competition training, so she’s been eating like an athlete to keep up her strength and energy. As someone that follows a primarily meat, dairy and egg-free diet, she included a lot of organic, plant-based proteins like lentils and edamame in her post. She shared a great recipe for a green protein smoothie, too!

Whitney from Live Run Love Yoga just got back from vacation, so her WIAW post was about getting her eating habits back on track after a little bit of indulging. I love her healthy meals with berries and 100-calorie sandwich thins, but that lobster dinner from her trip looks incredible!

Chelsea from One Healthy Munchkin took a day trip to Toronto and shared some delicious eats from her visit, like an amazing-looking 10-grain turkey sandwich, and photos from stops at Kensington food market and Whole Foods. She definitely covered the “fitness” part of this month’s WIAW theme—she walked 10 miles during through Toronto!

It can be tough eating healthy in the office, but Sue from Sue In Training showed us the “bento” lunch of veggies, tofu, soy beans and rice that she brought to work. I’m dying to recreate the cranberry brownie bites she made, because they just look so good! Sue also shared that she started following Blogilates as a way of fitting exercise into her busy schedule.

Congrats to Katie from Wish and Whimsy, who wrote about the empowering experience of completing a 6 minute plank circuit. It’s so inspiring to hear that someone has accomplished a fitness goal—it always motivates me to want to reach mine! She posted 3 protein-packed meals plus her healthy frozen yogurt dessert. Yum!


Keep those great WIAW posts coming!

“Food, Fun & Fitness” tip: After a tough workout, it’s normal to be hungry and important to refuel. Just make sure you don’t overdo it! Visit Bite Size Wellness for some great tips on fighting that post-workout snack attack.
