What I Ate Today: Episode 3 (Video!)

What I Ate Today

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!

Great video...perfect length of time. Every time I watch one of your videos I pick up some nice little pointers. In today's I learned something about how you saute kale which is a food that I am beginning to eat more of. Thanks again for sharing these videos.
Allie says:
Love it! May I ask what cutting board you have? Looking for a big one like that to add to my registry...thanks :)

I always love these videos! I've got to try those collard wraps soon - such an easy way to get some extra greens in!
Adrienne says:
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!)
Candice M says:

Thanks, Ali! I love these videos too. All of these meals look so great! I'm definitely going to try making my own collard green wraps in the future.
Michelle says:
Girl are you kidding me? I just made the kale sweet potato bbq chicken and guac plate for dinner. Amazing! So happy you shared!
Ali Maffucci says:
Thank you Michelle, so happy you liked it!
Elena says:
Cutie pie Lou looks like he enjoyed his dinner! Great video
Josee D says:
Lu has obviously censured the video... Probably in solidarity with other men! Love your videos. :)
[…] My friend Ali has been making What I Ate Today videos and I’m fascinated by them. I love seeing people’s everyday lives, which is why I love The Grub Street Diet http://www.grubstreet.com/tags/the-grub-street-diet/ so damn much!  https://inspiralized.com/2015/11/18/what-i-ate-today-episode-3-video/ […]
Kerri says:
Keep them coming! Can't get enough of these ideas and videos!
Alicia says:

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom

turned up my Broccoli & Cheddar Egg Donuts with some everything bagel seasoning, and it's a totally new recipe 🥯 🧀 you can grab this original recipe on the blog - just add a generous amount of EB seasoning to them! great for an on-the-go breakfast, packable kids lunch, or just a protein packed snack!  🥚

also, we only have two more weeks left in florida, which means I’ll be back to dreary backgrounds to my food photos 😂😂 🌊⁣
