WIAW [What I Ate Wednesday]: 2.13.2013

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Is it just me or is this week going soooo slow? But on the other hand, 3 day weekend coming up! 🙂

I’m excited to share what I’ve been eating, you’ll notice that some things have changed while others are still the same!

Peas and Crayons

Thanks to Jenn for hosting!

[breakfast] coffee with cream/sugar, grapefruit, 2 eggs over the baby spinach blend, and three pieces of turkey bacon

[pre-lunch snack] 2 clementines

[lunch] went to a restaurant called Honey Pig, essentially Korean BBQ. We shared beef brisket and pork belly, along with rice, salad, and some other sides.


[after-lunch dessert] some dark chocolate (this brand is really good!)

[afternoon snack] 1.5 PB Amazeballs via Gina @ The Fitnessista and some potato chips (unpictured)

[dinner] leftover salad scooped up from work, which had mixed greens, cranberries, blue cheese, pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, and balsamic dressing. Also had a little bit of pasta with meat sauce and zucchini


[dessert] powerballs from Trader Joe’s <— these little babies are dangerous!


A good day of eats, and it was fun to try a new restaurant/style of food! Oh, and this is from yesterday 🙂

QA: What was your favorite thing you’ve had to eat this week? Is there anything you eat day in and day out?

WIAW [What I Ate Wednesday]: 12.12.2012

Friends! How are you? I’m doing okay, actually already snuggled up in bed (jeez I am an old woman.. it’s 8:05pm…) and it has been a long day. Work is getting busy and I’m just feeling blah, I think it’s the holidays, ya know, the time of year that is supposed to be so jolly. It’s stressing me out! I did get some holiday cards done for us… yay one thing done 🙂

Alright, let’s get rolling with WIAW, and thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting this!

What I Ate Wednesday Healthy Holiday Recipes

This is from todays eats, mostly good, and let me say that I am loving holiday foods! Specially the cookies I made last night, but don’t you worry, I did share them with work!

[breakfast] trader joe’s apple chicken sausage with two eggs mixed in and some cheddar cheese, and a clementine


[lunch] hot food bar from work! I had lots of little things, including a big pile of salad, with some fixings. Then I add a bunch of protein, usually chicken, some beef, and some pork (I do little scoops of each). Lastly, I add veggies of some sort… usually works out great, as it did today! Ohhh, plus a no bake cookie!



[snack] apple and 2 clementines


[dinner] noodleless lasagna, featured on the blog last night, and two more no bake cookies. Those babies are dangerous.



So lots of veggies, fruits and whole foods… and cookies 🙂 Enjoy the holidays!

WIAW [What I Ate Wednesday]: 11.7.2012

Good morning to you all! Let’s get this WIAW rolling 🙂

Peas and Crayons

All meals are from Tuesday (Election Day), and the only thing missing is a handful of candy I had at work! (Dear parents, please leave your children’s candy at home, so we can maintain our good eating habits while at work 😉 )

Breakfast was coffee with coconut creamer and sugar, 2.5 pieces of turkey bacon, and 2 eggs with a sprinkle of cheese.


Lunch included Chipotle Chicken Salad and tootsie rolls! We keep tootsie rolls at work, and they are pretty low on the weight watchers points, so I typically have some after lunch.


My snack was apple slices.


Dinner was leftovers from last week of Santa Fe Chicken Casserole, wine, and leftover acorn squash with a small slab of butter and brown sugar.


Q + A: What did you eat this week?

So here is what I had today to eat, however, a few things are missing: half of the eggs and 2 pieces of turkey bacon, 4-5 chocolate covered pretzels, a few pieces of pita chips, an apple, and a yogurt.

note to self: don’t come home and start making dinner while absolutely starving, you will eat chocolate covered pretzels ;D

Anywho! Here we go:


breakfast: egg whites with ketchup; 3 pieces of turkey bacon

lunch: roast beef wrap with lettuce, avocado, and mustard; Dannon Pure yogurt [so good]; chocolate covered pretzels

dinner: chicken fajitas; onions and peppers; avocado; cheese; lettuce
