What I Ate Wednesday #108: National Chocolate Day

Have you entered my Athleta giveaway yet?

Did you know that yesterday was National Chocolate Day? I found out later in the day but luckily I happily celebrate everyday 😉 I swear, no one should have told me that dark chocolate is good for me.. that means I can have it by the handfuls, right? If you’re looking for ways to have a belated celebration, check out these delicious recipes!

Chocolate for every occasion!

[Breakfast]
Protein Egg White Oatmeal Almond Peanut Butter Coffee Califia Coconut Almond Milk
Same ol’, same ol’. I’ve been running dangerously low on my nut butters but I’m trying to use up as much as I can before I make more. Let me tell you, it’s rough! Haha I live such a hard life..

[Mid-Morning Snack]
I won a box of Banana Butterscotch Simply Protein bars and they’ve been a great little snack for when I have a quick break at work and know that I’ll need a little something to hold me over. At 130 calories, 8g fiber, 15g protein, and only 1g sugar, they do just that!

[Lunch]
Skirt Steak Avocado Trader Joes Cowboy Caviar Fuyu Persimmon
It’s nice having leftovers that aren’t chicken sometimes. A steak salad turns out to be pretty darn exciting! Especially with a sweet persimmon and some cowboy caviar from Trader Joes.

[Afternoon Snack]
Protein Chocolate Almond Butter Brownies
Like I said, I celebrate National Chocolate Day everyday! I’m loving having these brownies in the freezer; I just pop it in the microwave with a little coconut almond milk for 30 seconds and top with almond butter. It’s just so good and hits the chocolate spot!

[Dinner]
Half Baked Harvest Spicy BBQ Chickpeas Crispy Polenta Roasted Aparagus
Note to self: Nathan isn’t a fan of meatless Monday. Ha! At least I enjoyed dinner..

[Evening Snack]
Another apple. More almond butter. And more chocolate.. in the form of chocolate covered salted cashews. Try limiting your intake on those bad boys!

Food for Thought

Did you celebrate National Chocolate Day?
