I’ve learned a lot reading posts from others on What I Ate Wednesday-hosted by Peas and Crayons. I decided that it was time to share a typical day in my diet. Although, I feel that today I was bit derailed from the typical.
I usually eat a “real” breakfast after my morning workouts. Today I was dreaming up eggs, spinach, and goat cheese. But, I was pressed for time between getting back from my ride, showering, dropping off my truck at the mechanic, and getting to work.
