WIAW + Workouts #26

First What I Ate Wednesday of 2013! Woohoo!!

Peas and Crayons

I thought I would do something a little different and show you guys a typical day of eats when Joe and I are on the mountain. We bring food with us since it tends to be so expensive at the resorts, and we like to eat frequent small and energizing snacks. Here’s a look at What I ate last Saturday 🙂

Breakfast is usually a protein smoothie and a banana pb&j on whole wheat on the way to the mountain, but this time I went with an Iced Gingerbread flavored Cliff Bar- best flavor ever!


After a couple hours of riding, we stop for a snack. This time it was peanuts, pretzels, and apple sauce.                                                                          IMG_2077[1]

When we stop, I usually have something waiting in the car to snack on til we get a restaurant, but forgot this time! It was ok since we were just walking into Breckenridge Village to grab a pint/food. We both got an IPA and split the artichoke dip. I love that it came with vegetables and pretzel rolls! YUM!      IMG_2080[1]

After another beer, we headed back to Denver and grabbed dinner at Highland Tap and Burger. Veggie burger with arugula, blue cheese, and roma tomatoes on a wheat roll for me (I ate 1/2 and took the other 1/2 home).                                IMG_2085[1]

After a shower and lazy time on the couch, ate a few Russian Teacake cookies that my mom and I baked together while she was visiting.                              IMG_2115[1]

And that’s about it! I think we work pretty hard and burn a ton of calories while we’re snowboarding because I am usually ravenous all day!!

Do you have any new fitness challenges you are working on for the new year?

  1. Looks like a fun & very active week!

  2. I’m an IPA girl too! Your green smoothie looks good as well.

  3. omg a pretzel roll?! That sounds so good! I love everything pretzel related haha

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more on
    this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but typically
    folks don’t discuss such issues. To the next! All the best!!

  5. My grandma makes russian tea cookies for Christmas every year! So good and not too sweet. I am super jealous of how many outdoor workouts you got in!

    Pretzel rolls may be the greatest thing ever! Totally worth every carb =)
