WIAW Official #6: Featuring Tuesday

I cannot believe it is already Wednesday again! I feel like I just did WIAW...I guess that's a good thing..time flies when you're having fun?

This semester is going well so far. I really like all of my classes and I'm trying to stay on top of things since we have a lot of papers and projects. I still can't wait to graduate and have my degree in Dietetics!

I taught Cycle & Sculpt and Totally Fit again on Sunday. Then on Monday, I took Katie's awesome BodyPump class. I left early because I hate lunges I needed to work on a paper that is due this week. Last night I taught a 30 minute Abs class and 65 minutes of RIPPED. We had 30 people in RIPPED again last night! Sooooo awesome!!

I have also signed up to help an organization on campus called FLY: For Loving Yourself. They have events to help promote a healthy and positive body image. They also host events during Eating Disorder Awareness week that I have volunteered to help with. I am really excited about it because this is something that I am obviously passionate about. I can't wait to get started!

Moving on to the real reason you guys are here.

I had a smoothie with:
-1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk,
-1/2 Frozen Banana,
-Frozen Mango,
-Milled Flax Seed and
-1 Tbsp Skippy Natural PB.

I forgot to take a here is a picture of a random smoothie:

That's about right.

For lunch, I decided to try out one of the Quorn products I bought the other day. The label claims that their products are soy free and meatless. I was curious to know what exactly they were made of....

Mycoprotein (28%), rehydrated egg white, enriched wheat flour (niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), canola oil, onions, textured wheat protein (wheat protein, wheat starch). Contains 2% or less of whey protein concentrate, salt, buttermilk powder, rice flour, dextrose, yeast, garlic powder, autolyzed yeast extract, tapioca starch, pectin, natural flavors from non-meat sources, sunflower oil, ascorbic acid, black and white pepper, citric acid, onion powder, gum arabic, celery seed, calcium lactate, paprika extract, lemon oil 

Made from natural ingredients.

Interesting. What is Mycoprotein?

Mycoprotein is the main ingredient in all Quorn products. It's made from a member of the fungi family, which includes mushrooms and truffles, and is a high-quality meat-free protein that's naturally low in fat with very few calories. Mycoprotein also is high in dietary fibre, which is important for your digestive system, and has the essential amino acids your body needs, with no cholesterol or trans fats.  This means that Quorn products tend to be lower in saturated fats and calories than similar foods made with meat - and they taste great too!  Our expert chefs really know how to get the best out of mycoprotein, allowing them to create our wide range of meals, grills and burgers, as well as cooking ingredients like grounds and pieces. To find out more please visit

Well, that definitely adds some variety to my diet.

4 Quorn 'Chicken' Nuggets, Mott's Cinnamon Applesauce and Honey Mustard.
With Broccoli and Carrots.

I had two snacks the rest of the day. 

0% Greek Yogurt, Mango, Almonds, PB & Chocolate Chips, Coconut. Amazing.

Before I taught RIPPED I had:

Whole Wheat Toast with Reduced Sugar Grape Jelly

Some Pumpkin Seeds!

After I finished teaching classes last night, my mom called and invited me and DH to dinner with her and her BFF. They wanted to go to Longhorn's. 

I ordered the Grilled Shrimp (with no butter) with Green Beans and no rice. I also had a side salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. Of course I had some of their awesome bread as well. 

Oh yeah.

Well, that's my WIAW: Featuring What I Ate Tuesday.

I hope everyone is having a great week!
