Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
I’m typing this up on Tuesday night when I really should be reading for Book Club… I still have another 200+ pages to finish by Thursday! So let’s just jump right into this weeks ‘What I Ate
Wednesday Sunday’ post. :)
Pre-Breakfast Snack – 6:45 am
Mike and I had plans to go on an early 3 mile power-walk (in which I had killer shin splints, wtf?), so I ate a larabar before we took off.
Breakfast – 9ish am
A bowl of mixed berry greek yogurt, raspberries, blueberries + GoLean crisp cereal. Plus, Dunkins hazelnut coffee with unsweetened almond milk.
Lunch – Noon
Lunch was whatever I could quickly throw into a cooler for the beach… including freshly cut-up pineapple (addicted!) and a peanut butter, banana sandwich.
Afternoon Snack – 4ish pm
My favvvv snack plate: cheese, pretzel crackers, grapes + wine! Yep, I enjoyed 1/2 glass of chardonnay and it was delicious!
Dinner – 7:30 pm
Mike prepared an amazing dinner consisting of steamed green beans and Hawaiian burgers. I believe I ripped the recipe out of an old ‘Better Homes & Gardens’ magazine but I can’t recall? And Mike just tweaked it a bit.
Ingredients for 4 servings
1 lb lean ground, grass-fed beef
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped pineapple (canned or fresh)
a few pieces of diced deli ham
a few dashes of sea salt + ground pepper
4 slices of cheese (we used cheddar)
4 whole wheat sandwich thins (or burger buns)
Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato, onions, ketchup, mustard, etc.
Combine beef, blue cheese, onions, pineapple, ham, salt + pepper together in a large bowl. Mix well. Shape the burgers into 4 patties, cook over medium heat on the grill + add the sliced cheese right before they’re done. Enjoy the burgers on a sandwich thin or bun with whatever toppings you’d like!
You guys, these burgers were SOOO flavorful – you have to try ’em! :)
