Happy Hump Day, peeps!
Almost every week, I waiver on whether or not to participate in What I Ate Wednesday. I sort of get bored with it, since I often eat the same things day in and day out. Also, I’m scatter-brained and usually forget to photograph a full day’s worth of meals! Other times, I feel like it’s kind of obsessive. And then there are the inconsiderate bloggers who’ve taken advantage of the link-up by sharing unrelated content. That’s not what this little party is about!
What I Ate Wednesday is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself and others, embracing fruit and vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so. much. more.
Since I *adore* food and really do like reading dozens of WIAW posts each week for ideas (and sheer curiosity), I’m going to jump back in today. This probably won’t be a weekly thing, but I’ll aim to do it once a month at least. And I promise to share a typical day of food—no deception.
Here’s what I ate
Wednesday last Friday…
Breakfast → An egg sandwich (a fried egg and strawberry preserves on an English muffin) with an unphotographed mug of coffee and half-bottle of orange juice
Snack → A Nature Valley (well, a store-brand imposter I should say) oats and honey granola bar (deal with the stock photo, I inhaled mine before I whipped out the camera)
Lunch → A chopped salad (lettuce, cabbage, and shredded carrots) topped with green onion, walnuts, and blueberries (it was supposed to have bacon in the mix—but it’s Lent, so no meat) with blue-cheese dressing and a side of The Better Chip tortilla chips made with beets (they’re so pretty!)
Snack → Some good, old-fashioned peanut butter crackers (Jif and Saltines—aka what sustained me as the pickiest child) followed by a Greek yogurt a couple hours later (what can I say—I’m always “breastfeeding hangry”)
Dinner → Half a falafel pita, half a veggie gyro, and hummus c/o The Mediterranean Sandwich Co.
I threw this post together last Friday and then didn’t look at it again till today—so I’m sure I’m forgetting a snack and/or glass of wine (or bottle of beer). I think I may have had a spoonful of nut butter before dinner—or a piece of chocolate?
Anyway, you get the idea. This is like 90% of what I ate last Friday, but remember that I don’t shy away from desserts and/or snacks. Unless I explicitly say so, don’t ever assume that I post 100% of what I eat in a given day. And, please, don’t feel you should change your “diet” to emulate mine. I’m not a dietician or nutrition professional—I’m just a girl who loves to eat! ;-)
Later, y’all. Don’t forget to visit Peas & Crayons for the rest of the WIAW party.
What’s the best thing you ate today?
