Out with the old, in with the new. Well, okay… not all the old. Or all the new. Whatever – when it comes to food, I like what I like. =)
It’s What I Ate Wednesday! Easily the best day in the blog world. Not that we don’t always share all the good stuff we eat. But Wednesday’s a whole day dedicated to it.
This week I’m sharing a variety of breakfasts, lunches & dinners. Some old, some new. What I’m nottttt showing you is the dozens of quest bars, spoonfuls of peanut butter, glasses of wine and handfuls of dark chocolate chips I also ate over the course of the week. Whatever, I ain’t perfect.
But hopefully I’ll be getting where I need to be with help from Blogilates. I’ll be sure to track my progress here. Now, on to the good stuff.
Sweet potato pancakes on Saturday morning. Ummmm – yes.
Overnight oats are nothing new to me, but this flavor combo was!
I broke out of my little breakfast routine with these cinnamon vanilla almond overnight oats. I made them with cinnamon swirl Cellucor protein, chia seeds, cashew milk, sliced bananas, sliced almonds, cinnamon Quaker Oatmeal Squares and 1/2 a broken up Vanilla Almond Oatmega Bar (my review of them here).
PS — 3 new flavors of Oatmega coming soon — can’t wait!
Something exciting happened last week. Our office snacks got upgraded! I chatted with our CFO to suggest some healthier office snacks — fruit, mixed nuts and granola bars. They are a huge improvement from the candy & chips we used to get.
My mid-morning snack is almost always plain Greek yogurt with fruit. Siggi’s on sale at Whole Foods was a big treat! I topped this one with blueberries & gojis while I took a mini break to browse penny loafers on Pinterest. I need. ;]
Monday lunch on the porch – so thankful I can come home for lunch some days. This was a turkey, avocado & tomato panini on sprouted whole wheat toast.
Tuesday’s lunch was a different variation on the same thing, but this time in a La Tortilla Factory low carb tortilla. I also added kale and pesto, and had a mozzarella string cheese on the side.
In the crockpot went low sodium vegetable broth, lentils, red bell peppers, frozen zucchini, red onion, kale, garlic, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper. The spiciness was on point.
So, I’ll be making a mini announcement next WIAW. My meal recaps will be a bit different for a while thereafter… that’s all I’m saying!
- What’s one new food you tried this week? An oldie but a goodie?
- Spill it — the foods you ate that you’d rather not publicize? ; )
