A good indication of a well-balanced meal is lots of colors. To get all that color on your plate, you need to be eating lots of fruits and vegetables! I suppose you could also pour yourself a bowl of M&Ms… but that’s not typically the thing I’d promote. For breakfast. Unless it’s your birthday, then I think you’re allowed to do whatever you want.
But let’s be serious here. Skip the M&Ms and make these spinach protein pancakes instead! Then cover them with berries and bananas.
It’s a super simple recipe, which is key to getting out the door most mornings. I think you could prep this batter the night before and be ready for pancakes in the morning; however, I wouldn’t let it sit longer than one night in the refrigerator.Print

As for the rest of my eats, here is (most of) What I Ate Wednesday! I seem to have forgotten most pictures of snacks lately, although they are usually the same. Sweet potatoes, yogurt bowls, carrots, and hummus…. so imagine 3 or 4 of those along with my meals!
Lunch was a Romaine salad with chicken, avocado, bell peppers, black beans, and Feta crumbles. I’ve been craving the crunch of Romaine with salads lately, and it’s been delicious! I might have to keep it around for a while.
Dinner was a favorite and requested by the man. My healthy turkey meatloaf is always delicious! I’m pretty sure I added another slice of meatloaf on top of this before I dug in because I realized it was nowhere near enough to fill me up.
My main meals for the day all involved a lot of green!
What’s your favorite color food? Green is probably mine
