What I Ate Today: Episode 3 (Video!)

What I Ate Today: Episode 3 (Video!)

I decided to make a “what I ate video” for today’s new video, because many of you were raving on Instagram over my collard green wraps (which I totally get, because they’re the bomb) and I wanted to share a “behind the scenes,” as I made it for lunch.

I actually have a professionally made video for my collard green wraps, but I like this uncut version better. Go figure.

Collard green wraps are great – they’re light but filling, easy to make, and becuase you’re not using carb and calorie heavy bread, you can stuff it with whatever the heck you want and still not break the calorie bank (if you’re on a diet or watching your caloric intake, of course.)

And Lu made a guest cameo, because he was home while I cooked dinner that night and he was being extra salty. Truth is, I know he likes to be in my videos, but he acts like such a tough guy on camera.

Aren’t all boyfriends/husbands like that? Such tough exteriors but cuddly little wombats when they’re behind closed doors? Or is that just me?

Thanks for tuning in and as always, give the video a “thumbs up” if you like it and leave me a comment!

Speaking of comments, I got a request for a Q&A video. If you have any questions for me (lifestyle or food related), please e-mail me and I’ll make sure to answer them in an upcoming Q&A video!

Now, watch what I eat in a day, with a special appearance from the hubs!

  7. Thank you for posting this video! I am now inspired to try out collard greens which I’ve never had before. Also, that dinner looks amazing! I’m trying to get into eating kale, and that looks like something I’d really like. (I’ve also never poached chicken – so I’m going to try that too!)
